It's completely possible to look good on a chilly fall night without getting cold. Click through to see how.
For Dancing
Remember: despite the freezing weather, you're bound to get sweaty on the dance floor. With that in mind, start your outfit with a short dress and comfortable shoes; then add layers, like tights and a pullover, that you can remove without wrecking the look.
For a Fancy Dinner
Whether it's a jacket-required restaurant or a formal gala, a full midi skirt is your best bet. Not only does the length feel more fancy than a mini or maxi, but it'll also keep your legs warm—even without tights!
For Drinks With Friends
Because it tends to get toasty in cocktail lounges and bars, keep your bottom layers fairly thin and focus on making your outerwear the warmest it can be. Try lining a boxy wool jacket with a fur vest for parka-like insulation.
For a Party
You can totally keep your go-to party mini in rotation all season by pairing it with over-the-knee boots. To ensure the look doesn't veer into vampy territory, though, be sure to wear something slouchy on top, like a sweatshirt or cable knit.
For Dinner and a Movie
One of the more casual ways to spend an evening, going out for food and a flick doesn't require a lot of extra dressing up. It's more important to focus on cute and cozy layers you'll feel comfortable in all night.
