Inside: 27 trendy winter birthday outfits for those of us partying into the colder months!
Birthdays are so fun to plan and even more fun to dress for. Especially when you can channel flashy and center of attention vibes, who wouldn’t want to go all out on their birthday?
Winter birthdays can maybe be a little tough if your favorite season to dress for is spring or summer.
Winter party clothes can be tricky to navigate especially if you live somewhere where the winter’s are really intense. But never fear.
I have some amazing winter birthday outfits just for YOU as you start to plan your outfit along with everything else for your big day. Dinner reservations, drinks with the girls, kicking it at home with everyone… Whatever is on your agenda, you’re going to love these outfits and layering pieces for a winter bash.
Let’s jump in to some of these ideas and how you can style them for winter!
Best Winter Layering Pieces
Obviously, we all have our go-to coats and sweaters for the winter time, ready to throw over anything and everything we might need to layer over this season.
I try to venture into something fresh, something that isn’t just the bare minimum black pea coat over every outfit. Although I treasure my pea coats!
My birthday is in November, so it’s truly a toss up every year if it’s going to be 80 degrees or 30! And I don’t usually even know until the day of. There’s no indication all month long what the weather will be like on my birthday here in Texas!
Some cool pieces I’ve started to look into on the chances of a cold birthday are:
- Suede trench coat
- Fleece lined moto jacket
- Leather trench
- Wool blazer
- Long teddy (no cropped teddys!)
These are all pretty typical pieces and really trendy pieces (which we will get into next!) but they each have their own style to them. It’s new and fresh takes on your classic winter pieces, that still add an edgy and cool style to your layers over your birthday fit!
Winter Trends 2022
Every couple years, the winter trends change and the coats we wear get traded out for newer versions with a slightly new tailoring that makes the new one cool and the old one dated.
What’s trending in 2022? There aren’t a lot of changes to the winter trends this year! Obviously we will start seeing new ways that people style the old pieces, but for now, it’s still the coolest combinations of trench coats and flannel scarves.
Slouchy is the vibe, and anything you think Hailey Bieber would wear in the colder months over there in California is in. Off duty model with a combination of classy Blair Waldorf is still the move in the winter, and finding the balance is the perfect winter look.
Preppy street is what I call this style, and I couldn’t be happier, personally! I love this look. Tights with little socks and ballet flats but with a slouchy trench coat? Yes please! How cool.
For birthdays, this might look like slouchy leather pants with a long sleeve bodysuit and old Hollywood waves in your hair. The styling of hair, makeup, and shoes will really sell this look for your birthday.
Cool Shoes To Wear On Your Birthday
Obviously when you’re the center of attention, the outfit doesn’t stop at your knees! Your shoes have to be in line with the rest of the outfit too! To be ready for anything that comes your way, any photo or video of you having the time of your life on your birthday.
Heels are obviously the go to for your birthday fit, but right now, lug sole boots have my heart right now that I love the challenge of dressing them up!
Your shoes totally depend on your plans and destinations you have for this special day! If you’re heading to a club, heels are the move. If it’s a cool and classy dinner, lug soles or heels are perfect.
Anything more casual, lug sole or a perfect pair of fresh white sneakers will do the trick.
If you’re wearing a dress, tights will help keep you warm even if you go the sneaker or heels route. That is, if you live somewhere that it actually gets cold out in winter! Not everyone may need a solution for the winter air on their bare legs, but if you do, a pair of sheer black tights will always be a classy look.

It’s still possible to dress cool in the winter, even if all you want to do is bundle up instead! Getting the right layering pieces and the right trendy coat will make you fall back in love with a winter wardrobe, and will maybe make you want to bundle up less!
