Keep Cosy & Chic for Bonfire Night
I love Bonfire night just as much as the next person; I love the feeling of being with your family and friends whilst you overload on sugar and listen to the fizzing and whirring of fireworks, what I do not like, however, is shivering all night and getting knee-deep in mud. BUT that doesn’t mean you have to wear a million layers that make it nearly impossible to walk.
I am here to equip you with everything you will need to keep nice and snug on Bonfire Night whilst looking like the main event.
Firstly, I love the colours black and grey. They’re my favourite colours to wear. But it’s going to be pitch black – if you wear dark colours you may just look like a floating head. Neons would be a good option (complimenting the fire works and making sure you don’t get hit by a car), but I know a lot of you don’t want to stick out like a sore thumb so opt for softer colours. Here I’ve opted for beige and a soft pink, these colours tend to suit most skin types as well which is a bonus.
I’m wearing thermal tights which are a godsend if you’re like me and prefer wearing dresses and skirts even in the winter. They were around £3 from Primark, but you’ll be able to get them in all sorts of places.
I’m wearing a £30 dress from Zara as a skirt. This works really well as it’s like an extra layer under your jumper which is £15 from H&M if you’re wondering. It is really soft and not tight-fitting at all which is great when you’re gobbling down toffee apples and massive, fat greasy burgers.
My coat was approximately £100 from Topshop and I’m absolutely in love with it; it goes with most things and it’s just so nice to wear on a cold day with a chunky scarf, it is just so cosy!
You can’t see the shoes I’m wearing in this picture, but as a set rule, if you’re going to a bonfire, wear boots or wellies! You do NOT want to risk ruining your favourite flat pumps just for the sake of watching fireworks. It’s not worth it. Stay safe.
My scarf is from H&M, it was about £2 in the sale last winter, bargain! I do know they have ones very similar in store at the moment and I will definitely be buying more of them. Faux fur is perfect every winter; it’s so luxurious and glamorous. It comes from the start of the Russian empire where the fur industry was worth more than gold. This trend that fur equals luxury has carried on and will continue to do so.
Let me know what you think of this look and if there’s anything you’d do differently to suit your own style.
I love hearing (and perhaps stealing…) other people’s ideas.
