Dressing up for nighttime events is tricky enough, but add cold weather on top of that? It all gets so much trickier. You want to look put together, stylish and on-trend without having to sacrifice your good health or happiness by shivering away all night long. Striking the balance between cosy and chic is by no means easy, but entirely possible, rest assured! Try out these elegant evening outfit ideas this coming winter for your most stylish and warm nights out yet…
The bohemian style is all about layering and relaxed fits, perfect for colder weather! Start with knitted pants and match with a long sleeved merino wool tee shirt. Layer on a silk or lace kimono, add knee high boots and slide on as many resin and metal bangles up your arm as you can muster. Plenty of smudged eyeliner and chunky hoop earrings, and you’re out the door ready for a magically stylish night out on the town.
Toned Down Tailoring
Women’s luxury pants are the ultimate base for your evening outfits, all year round, really, but especially during the colder months. Dress your favourite pair of paper bag tailored pants up by tucking in a silk cami top, adding a biker fit leather jacket and stepping into some heeled ankle boots. This is sophisticated, alluring and the perfect midway point between fun and fashionable – basically, the dream outfit!
Cashmere and Leather
Staying warm all winter really comes down the nuts and bolts of your wardrobe – i.e. the materials that your clothes are made from. Pick up a pair of kick flare cut leather pants to add an amazing statement piece to your fall/winter collection that works for all kinds of different occasions. Wear with a cuddly, chunky knit cashmere sweater in an oversized crew neck cut, stiletto heels and a boyfriend fit blazer for an androgynous, edgy evening look. Add some statement hoop earrings and a dark lipstick for a little more nighttime elegance
Chic Colour Contrasts
Colour contrasting is so much fun and creative, great if you’re feeling slightly uninspired by your wardrobe and you fancy switching things up a bit. Add a twist on your favourite red dress by contrasting it with soft, baby pink accessories. Think a dusty rose shawl, blush resin jewellery and a rose tinted satin ribbon to your hair. This is perfect for a formal evening out on the town or for a cocktail party when you really feel like standing out from the crowd.
High Low Dressing
High low might sound confusing, but it really just means mixing a little bit of formal with a little bit of casual. Grab your trusty jeans, tuck in a simple white cami top and layer on a shimmering sequin studded evening jacket. Keep it tonal and timeless by sticking to shades of denim, white and black. This is a minimalist outfit that’s contemporary, comfortable and cosy. Keep your feet warm with leather ankle boots and add a knitted beanie for moving between venues, and you’re set! Once you try this outfit out it’ll first become a firm fashion favourite, all year round.
