Valentine's Day: How To Dress For Winter Date Night

Valentine's Day is fast approaching and for once it falls on a weekend – YAY! So why not make the most of it by dressing up and venturing out despite it most likely being a chilly night. Generally, dressing up for winter can be challenging, defying the elements and still look chic is not an easy task. But whether Sunday 14th brings us wind, rain or snow (very unlikely in London but still), it is possible to look sexy whilst staying warm on Valentine's Day Date Night. From fancy footwear to luxe key items, I've got you covered in my latest outfit looks and a few winter trends; grab your umbrellas and gloves and head out for an amazing time with your loved one. 


Comfy and stylish is the concept I plan my outfits around. Chunky knits, sweater dresses and anything warm and cosy screams fall perfect. I find that Knit Dresses have had a make-over and are now the ultimate winter date night choice.  I'd personally pair them with leather leggings, a red lip and gold accessories for that chic look we all want, but can we pause and appreciate how stylish the Native Fox (picture 1) looks. I love how she implemented tons of trends in one look, she really hit the nail on the head in this cosy yet super elegant getup. 


If I had to define this year's winter in one trend (amongst the many ones I am loving), it would be Leather. I am really loving how much braver we are being with this trend. Wherever I turn, I see ladies rocking leather pants during day time (which was something we previously would not do), leather skirts being worn to the work environment, and what can I say, I am hooked. I find leather to be ideal when it comes to adding a touch of glamour to an evening look, despite you totally being allowed to go for it during the day too. Ankle boots, a pair of leather pants, skirt or dress, and a super sleek knit is the infallible combination for a timelessly cool edit.


Lace is usually associated with spring and nice weather but winter has brought hints of laces here and there and I adore how seductive yet subtle the above examples are. I am currently looking for a lace bra myself so I can wear it under a loose sheer-ish blouse or a tee for the "lace peekaboo" trend we are seeing everywhere. If done right, lace can exude sensuality, whilst keeping your modesty and warmth intact.  


I've talked about the Over-The-Knee Boot trend tirelessly (see here, here and here) but what can I say, I adore it and I am happy it is here to stay yet another year. Heeled or flat, this is the perfect solution for cold-weather glam so no wonder it is the fashionista's go-to for chic winter style. To avoid looking like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman, rule out that patent leather pair and opt instead for materials such as suede or matte leather in neutrals shades of black, grey, brown and nude. This will make styling these babies a lot easier. Pull them over jeans and team them up with a blazer or chunky knit for a luxe look.

What do you think of these winter trends? What will you be wearing on Valentine's day?
Let me know below! Thanks for reading beauties and wishing you all a wonderful weekend ahead!

  12. You know how I always end up being absolutely in love with every post of yours but this one is really on point (they always are and I'm always saying this but they keep on getting better like?). I think out of my favourites, I'd have to say I'm really in love with lacy. I feel like it can be worn it almost anything and still look so chic.

    But of course, I own a few leather pieces and I find that they're always my go to when it comes to dressing up in the morning. And denim on denim, I still haven't had the gut to wear it myself but I WISH.

    I don't have a VD, but I have me so I might just dress up anyway and do something I really love. I don't know yet to be quite honest. All my friends have dates ahahahha

  14. Great post, I really love your picks and the fact that you`ve talked about each style separately. I love all the trends you`ve mentioned, but fake leather remains my favourite. You can give it a bit of edge or add a bohemian twist, the possibilities are endless.

  33. All of these trends are gorgeous Pam! I love the 'over the knee' boot myself and have 2 pairs! I've never owned a knit dress before though, but I think it looks amazing. I love how it's chic and casual at the same time. So I think I'll have to search for the perfect on of those for Valentines.:)

  43. Beautiful but I don't think I can wear any of these! Dressing chic or even somewhat stylish is a big challenge for me in the winter. Apparently it's going to be -20 on V-day where I live. :(
