A bonfire is a wonderful occasion to come together with friends and family and have some real fun. It’s a great occasion for a nice date as well. Luckily, you can have a bonfire almost anywhere – in the woods, your lawn, on the beach, or beside a lake. You can have the bonfire in the summer too, but it’s quite special in the fall or winter.
We are kind of obsessed with fall and all the activities that come with it. One of our favorite things to do is to build a big bonfire and simply spend time with friends or family. It’s such a great way to build relationships and enjoy the weather before we bury ourselves indoors for the winter. It may be a casual event, but we still want to look great! Here are some bonfire outfit ideas you can try.
The Boyfriend Jeans
Bonfire night is the ideal time to cozy up in layers and slouchy silhouettes. These shredded boyfriend jeans are just the right thing. Roll up the hems and wear with a chunky knit.
The Super Warm Jacket
This puffer jacket means business. The high collar, hood, and down lining mean you’ll stay snug, plus the nipped-in waist will avoid you looking like the marshmallow man.
For the Glamorous Family Bonfire
Embrace the magic of firework night with this season’s whimsical fairytale trend, perfect for glamorous family parties in the country.
The Alpine Range
This season brings the ever so reliable alpine inspired image. Fur hoods, heavy wool coats are perfect for keeping you warm but keeping the look alive. Go for colors like light brown and grey, as they match both seasons; autumn and winter. Match these coats with skinny fit cords or jeans and a decent pair of ski style boots.
The Casual Chic Look
It may be fall but sometimes in the South, it can still be hot! And when you add a huge pile of flaming wood, it may as well be very much like the summer! So you can go for denim shorts and a team tee to keep you from glistening to death. Simple accessories will complete this casual chic look! Be cool and look great!
Why not venture toward a more rock and roll feel and flaunt a stunning parka coat? These coats are very popular in the cities and some can carry a rather hefty price tag, but you do pay for quality. These coats and jackets go hand in hand with distressed jeans and a pair of black ankle Doc Martens or will contrast beautifully with a sixties-themed short dress and a pair of knee-length boots.
The Beanie Hat
Top off your bonfire night look with a cute beanie hat, complete with contrast faux fur.
A Bonfire in the City
If you’re watching the fireworks from a city rooftop, you’ve no excuse but to glam up your outfit. Style a jumpsuit with a color-pop coat and sparkly heels for a suitably festive look.
The Classic Plaid Look
Go for a trendy take on a classic outfit! Start with your favorite low-rise skinnies and plaid button-up! You can roll the sleeves and leave the shirt unbuttoned. Underneath, wear a pretty crop top with a graphic phrase on it for flair! It’s casual, looks cool, and matches the outfit well! Complete your outfit with an easy pair of sandals. Straighten hair and leave it down and loose, and keep makeup simple, playing up your eyes with lots of mascara.
Boot Cut Jeans With Tank Top
A pair of dark-wash boot cut jeans are universally flattering and also won’t show any dirt you collect after sitting on logs. A cute tank top layered underneath a cozy sweater will be both warm and chic without looking too stuffy (no blazers here, ladies!). Again, finish off the look with a pair of sandals, and keep the lip balm close.
It’s the most important bit! If you’re going outdoors forget the high heels! Flat boots, either ankle or knee length are the way forward.
The Supermodel Style
For a look that will stand out from the crowd this bonfire night, try this supermodel style of Irina Shayk with a smart jeans and jumper duo paired with a chic checked coat. Knee-high riding boots will keep your feet warm, while a snakeskin effect grab bag is perfect for holding a scarf and umbrella, just in case the weather turns whilst you’re admiring a fantastic fireworks display.
Coat and Skinny Jeans Combo
Stay toasty as you twirl your sparklers in a snug padded coat and dark blue skinny jeans combo. For extra cozy comfort, pick up a statement leopard print scarf and a pair of chunky lace-up boots.
If you’re worried about mosquitoes biting your legs but don’t want to stick with your everyday skinnies, opt for a pair of colored jeans instead! Maroon is totally on-trend and super sophisticated. Pair this with a loose, gray boyfriend tee and tie off at your hip for a sassy touch! Accessorize with a long necklace, and slip your feet into strappy sandals. Complete your bonfire look by leaving your hair long and loose.
Always make it a point to wrap up with an essential scarf if it is cold. You can try this Gray Cashmere Scarf. It will keep you warm.
These comforting knits keep you warm in style and will last through the whole season. You must have chunky jumpers at this time of the year. These layers are essential when you’re outside watching the firework displays. Wear your favorite knit over skinny jeans or leggings to keep your look in proportion.
The Chunky Knit Socks
As proud owners of a pair of these hand-knitted socks, you can be sure that are going to be super cozy, and that all your friends will want a pair.
Hats, scarves, and gloves will be the accessories to get you noticed. You can wear jewelry but nine times out of ten this will be covered by the layers keeping you warm. Choose your headwear wisely. A hat which does not compliments the shape of your face and a color that flatters your complexion can ruin the look of the entire outfit. If you have a hood on your coat a hat is not necessary, both can look too much.
