Let’s be honest. Getting ready for a date can be stressful enough as it is, but when you also have to consider the frigid weather, it’s a whole new ball game. While you want to put your best sartorial foot forward, you also have to keep in mind that, more likely than not, you’ll be piling on the layers in preparation for the temperatures outside. Fortunately, just because it’s cold out doesn’t mean you have to compromise your personal style for the sake of overall comfort. In fact, there are plenty of winter date outfits that’ll give you the best of both worlds, and who could turn away from that?
To illustrate our point, we’ve rounded up some of the best cold weather–appropriate ensembles that are fit for your next date, whether you’re about to enjoy the first of many or adding in some extra quality time with your S.O. this season. Shop them all below.
