Is this outfit look ok for an ice skating date outside?

Asked by XiaoMandyX (165points) February 12th, 2017

Hi, I’m not really a winter person but I’m wondering if this would keep me warm and look at least reasonably nice for my date I have! We will be skating outside then going to a pub for drinks and a meal!

Thanks for your advice.

There appear to be multiple outfits in that image. Which one were you thinking?

That’s just one outfit! Those are my layers!

Oh wow! If anything, you’ll be overdressed. Remember that you may break a sweat doing a physically rigorous activity like ice-skating.

Way too much clothing. Skip the white pants and the white top and the black overcoat hoody.

I feel like this exact question was asked a few years ago.

Where are you going skating? Antarctica?

They all look OK to me. But I think all ice skaters should go nude. It would cut down on the waiting time.

Unless you are skating outdoors in -40C weather you will shortly be too hot and overheated.
Fortunately there are plenty of layers so you can take off a few when you get indoors.

Please don’t worry about the clothes. The guy is much more interested in you rather than how you dress – especially in the winter .

Exactly. I would do fleece-lined leggings, a base layer top like UnderArmour or something similar, a fleece or some other pullover and a sensible winter coat. Hat and gloves and you’re good to go. You probably already have these things in your wardrobe so don’t go spending tons of money for a date outfit.

Nothing fancy, in fact if you overdress you may give the impression that you’re high-maintenance or self-conscious. (I know, I know, there’s a lot of gendered dogma to unwrap in that. But let’s save that for another day.)

Keep it simple and have fun!

@LeavesNoTrace Are you sure only 1 pair of leggings? I wear leggings under my jeans every day and that’s when I’m inside most of the day lol… if I’m out in the cold, my legs will be two little icicles!

@XiaoMandyX If that’s the case, maybe a pair of fleece-lined tights under a pair of jeans? I live in the Northeastern U.S. and that’s what I often wear out and about in the winter.

If you don’t mind me asking, what part of the world are you in?

What about just a thick sweater and the jacket with the hood? Maybe some earmuffs instead of the hat. Maybe one thin pair of leggings under some thicker pants.
