Looking cold-weather cute can be challenging. As temperatures plummet, your main goal becomes keeping toasty rather than sexy — but what if you could do both? Spoiler alert: You can. Rather than sacrifice your style for comfort, or vice versa, get creative with layering and accessorizing: Textured knits, over the knee boots, plaid, denim, shearling, and faux fur all make for the building blocks of the perfect date look. Just scroll on for four ways to mix and match your cozy and flirty pieces into combos that are date-night flawless.
