Classy Turtleneck Outfit for Winter Date Night

I’m back with Day 2 of 5 Ways to Wear a Grey Sweater, and this time I’m styling a classy turtleneck outfit for a winter date night look.

You may not immediately think of a cashmere turtleneck for date night, but when it’s the middle of winter and freezing cold, I’m willing to accept the challenge.

To jazz it up a bit, I paired my grey turtleneck with black coated jeans. The coated denim instantly elevates the look, and keeps me warm as well as chic!

If you don’t have coated denim, black jeans or skinny pants would work just fine. I recommend skinny pants over a more conservative trouser style because this is date night, not a work function… Although, if you are going to a work function… you can totally swap out the jeans for trousers to make this look office-appropriate.

Because the turtleneck is plain, I added a layered station necklace. Mine is no longer available, but I linked a few options below.

I also wore burgundy suede pumps. I considered over-the-knee boots for added warmth, but I have another look in this series with OTK boots, and I really like the suede pumps with the coated denim.

The burgundy is fun for a subtle pop of color, but black would work just as well… or snake print or leopard. Since the rest of the outfit is neutral, pretty much anything works.

And if you’re really worried about being cold, a dressy black suede bootie works too.

Then, to really turn it up a notch and bring the drama factor, I added a faux leopard fur coat.

This coat is absolutely gorgeous, and definitely brings this classy turtleneck outfit into the date night category.

It’s also very warm. #winning

(See the part above about it being winter and freezing.)

I actually have a New Year’s Party this weekend, and I might wear this exact outfit. I love how it’s both cozy and edgy, practical and dramatic, and still classy.
