Getting dressed for winter dates is like riding the struggle bus over and over again. On one hand, you want to look like the best version of yourself, but on the other hand, you don't know how that's physically possible with all those required layers. Don't worry people—we've left this one up to an expert. Below, Nora DeKeyser, matchmaker at Three Day Rule, told us exactly what not to wear on a winter date, along with a few outfit ideas to get you inspired. Check out her list below, and click in to see some winter-date outfit ideas.
Don't Wear: Something too revealing or baggy.
Do Wear: Tights, a dress, and a nice jacket.
"The first thing not to wear on a winter date is something too revealing! The last thing you want to do on a first date is feel uncomfortable and overexposed. People often make the mistake of thinking 'sexy' is analogous to showing skin, which is really not the case. 'Sexy' is when you look and feel confident, according to the temperature outside! Don't skip out on the tights just because it's a first date! You will look sexier if you are comfortable and warm enough to walk outside."
"The second thing not to wear on a winter date is baggy clothes. At the same time that you want to feel comfortable and warm enough for the temperature outside, you also aren't going snowboarding. So still show your curves! I recommend a dress with tights and a nice jacket."
