By now, you've probably got your winter daytime look sorted. You've figured out that the key to looking polished—and not like the Michelin Man—is a few good layers and resisting the temptation to just belt a sleeping bag and call it a day.

That requires more thought, not least because most of your cold-weather workhorses don't exactly say "sexy" (hello, turtleneck).  So we took four chill-busting items that are probably already in your regular rotation and put an evening spin on them—bookmark this for your next date night.
