What To Wear On A Night Out When It’s Freezing
The Debrief: The weather might be frightful, but that doesn’t mean your outfit has to be
If you haven't already noticed, it's reasonably chilly outside. I mean it's not quite arctic weather, but it's cold enough to make you think 'ooh, I couldn't possibly walk past this Christmas market without buying myself a mulled wine or twelve' (purely for heating purposes of course.) Luckily for you, we’ve done the leg work and found the best Winter-appropriate party outfits with a little help from our friends over on Instagram. The weather might be frightful, but that doesn’t mean your outfit has to be.
If you’re worried about a nippy walk to the bar, take a leaf out of Yasmine’s book and cloak yourself in a jacket fluffy enough to rival the Cookie Monster’s. Yes, yes, ‘what about cloak room charges?’ I hear you cry. Swap the price of one drink to check your coat and I guarantee you won’t regret the toasty ready-made blanket for the night bus home. Promise.
What better way to celebrate the Christmas season than with a pair of glittery gold jeans? A black sheer top allows you to show off your fanciest bra and helps offset any Children’s TV presenter connotations. Also, mesh is basically like a pair of tights for your body, so we’re pretty sure we’re onto a winner.
Maybe you’re not a Christmas person, or maybe you’re just not into colour. Either way, a monochrome look like this one is easy to re-create and a black lip is instant style points, all hail Wednesday Adams.
A long-sleeved wrap dress like this one from ASOS is perfect for looking cool while keeping out the cold. Black accessories ensure the look isn’t too The Little Mermaid, and chunky boots make for happy dancing feet - the party season dream.
Over the knee boots are having a serious moment this season and with a leg- coverage to skin-showing ratio like this, they’re perfect for keeping you warm on chilly December nights. Science y’all.
Chuck out the Christmas jumper, a red-co-ord is a much more sophisticated way to channel festive vibes. Using Nyane for inspo, those of us who'd like to stay a bit warmer can turn to Boohoo for a cool velvet culotte set like this one to see you through the night.
A classic LBD and leopard print combo comes out on top in the style stakes again and again. Just make sure to stick to minimal accessories, or run the risk of looking more Pat Butcher than city chic.
