Scroll down to find our ultimate guide for what to wear for bonfire night.

Finding the balance between fashionable and practical can be difficult, you wanna stay warm, without looking like you’re off on a hike. We’ve dropped the ultimate combination to help you nail your bonfire night outfits.

Bonfire night clothing ideas

The winter knits

The first part of your bonfire outfit needs to be a cosy knitted jumper, sweatshirt or hoodie. If you’re wise, you’ll opt for a dark colour to hide the inevitable mulled wine stains. When it comes to a bonfire, layering is key. If you are standing next to the fire, you want to be able to take off your jumper and have something underneath. Go for a long sleeve tee to be safe.

The cosy coat

When it comes to bonfire outfits, the coat is key. Due to being outdoors, you probs won’t get the chance to show off your outfit underneath, so make your coat count. Opt for a super cosy long coat that you can layer on top of a chunky jumper. If you wanna make a statement, then choose a bold coloured trench coat.

The trousers

Layer up your outfit with a pair of vintage inspired mom jeans or boyfriend jeans. If you are worried about muddy bottoms, then opt for a pair of skinny leather trousers that will slide into the top of your boots.

The chunky boot

Whether you are standing in your back garden or heading to a local park, you need to be prepared for mud. Ditch the fresh white trainers for a pair of chunky boots. If you wanna be extra prepped, then opt for a pair of wellies.

The essential accessories

When you are wrapping up warm, most of your outfit isn’t on show, so it’s important to accessorise. Add a cross body bag, cute hat and an oversized scarf. Winter accessories are the easiest way to add a pop of colour to your look.
