Stylish (and Warm!) Winter Evening Outfit Inspiration

You don’t have to look like the Michelin Man to head out for the night!

Picture this: It’s 9:30 p.m. on a Friday night after a long work week. You and your gals are lounging about chatting and savoring those last few sips of red wine. Someone pipes up about possibly heading out for another round—and it’s returned by pathetic groans. It’s late, you’re tired, and it's cold—which invariably means looking like a giant marshmallow.

We can't fix all of these, but you don’t have to look like the Michelin Man to head out for the night! With a few strategic pieces, you’ll be well on your way to stylish nighttime winter wear.

Your best investment is a trendy and warm wool coat (puffy down coats are great for everyday, but having a chic wool version is perfect for nights out). Bonus points if the wool coat has a vintage-y faux fur collar—you’ll be extra warm and won’t even need a scarf. Fleece-lined tights are also key for surviving icing nights, especially if you’re going to be walking or taking public transportation. Add an oversized clutch, great for stuffing your hat and gloves into once you enter your warm destination.



Don’t be afraid to mix casual with dressy. That warm, cozy knit sweater you pair with jeans? Swap the denim for a sparkly pencil midi skirt and urban booties—with some fun tights, of course!

A sweater dress doesn't have to be just for day. Keep extra toasty with a sweater knit dress in an interesting, cool pattern and dark hue. It's girls night, so why not dress a little funky?  Sturdy, trusty wedges are a sure bet for trudging along salt-strewn streets.

Yes, turtlenecks are cool. They're sleek, chic, and lengthen your form, plus they're perfect for layering. A faux fur vest is super luxe and fun for nights out. Add sparkle with statement chandelier earrings and a pop of color with burgundy wedges. Practical, warm, and cute—you've nailed you're semi casual going-out look.
