The most romantic day of the year is approaching and whether you’re spending it with a beloved valentine or celebrating with a group of your closest friends, it’s always fun to dress up and get those heads turning.  With the bone-chilling temperatures we’ve been having these days, finding a flirty outfit can be challenging. Here are a few winter-appropriate suggestions that will have your valentine swooning.

Dinner
Practical dresses for the winter are hard to come by. Depending on your mood, sometimes compromising with the weather isn’t worth it. Instead of sacrificing your own personal warmth this Valentine’s Day, try pairing a knitted sweater with a skirt.

Whether baggy or cropped, it’s always easy to find a sweater to throw over a fitted or flared skirt.  When experimenting with this combo, you’ll find that pairing different patterns and fabrics can offer a tasteful flare.

Silk, leather or lace skirts will undeniably compliment the theme of Valentine’s Day. Adding jewelry or other accessories like hats can dress up an outfit like this one and don’t forget your knee-high socks or nylons to keep you warm.
Concert
Depending on the venue and the artist, some concerts can have you feeling a little hot.  A perfect item to incorporate into your outfit is a vest. The good thing about vests is that it adds another layer to your outfit but won’t keep you sweltering when indoors.

Whether Sherpa, fur, leather or denim, vests can be worn over short-sleeved and long-sleeved shirts.  If you’re making the Sherpa or fur vest as the focal point of your outfit, plain and simple tops are usually the way to go. Denim and leather vests on the other hand, are a little more forgiving when it comes to patterns and colours.

Day date
If you’re looking to dress up during the day, mid-length skirts are a good alternative to short skirts or dresses.  Shorter than maxi skirts, these skirts are easy to style with a pair of ankle booties and the s

kirt also won’t drag in the snow. Again, you can keep it simple with a casual sweater or graphic t-shirt.  If you want to dress up the mid-length skirt, they pair well with a crop top and blazer.

Casual dates (movies, sport games, etc.)
There’s always a little less pressure when dressing for casual dates, but that doesn’t mean your outfit has to go unnoticed.  A trend making its comeback is the turtleneck. Baggier, knitted turtlenecks are the current favourite being worn on the streets these days. If you’re not ready to fully dive into this trend, many shirts and sweaters have short neck alternatives.

Joggers are also making their way into street style. They have been re-invented with slim, tapered legs and come in an array of fabrics and patterns that will certainly turn heads this Valentine’s Day. These joggers can be styled with almost everything, ranging from leather jackets to heels.

Depending on the look that you’re  hoping to go for, joggers can be styled tastefully and it is the perfect opportunity to get away with comfort without compromising your style.
