Bonfire Beauty: Our Blog

Fireworks, frosty mornings and fall fashion, November is here, and we’re going to help you embrace it in full force.

First things first, bonfire night. One of the most anticipated events of winter, it’s an occasion not to be missed. Whether you’re attending the 51st annual charity fireworks display at South Park on Saturday 3rd November or you’re planning your own with family and friends throughout the month, cosy clothes and lots of layers are a necessity!

Starting from the base layer up, we suggest this beautifully bold orange knitted jumper from H&M. And yes you read that right, orange! You may associate bright colours with summer, but we think adding a pop of colour to your winter wardrobe is crucial. Not only does it make you stand out in a crowd full of people wearing dull and dreary colours, but it can also brighten your mood and make you feel warmer. Pair this with navy skinny jeans and these gorgeous ankle boots from H&M for a simple but effective winter look.

The next layer on our list is a scarf, one of our favourite winter accessories. Its ability to be styled in different ways makes it the most versatile piece in your winter wardrobe, and one you’re not going to want to leave home without. We love this patchwork scarf from Gap, the combination of warm and earthy colours is a perfect complement to the orange jumper.

Your statement outfit doesn’t stop there! Give Cruella De Vil a run for her money with this super stylish faux fur coat from French Connection. Whether you wear it to the bonfire or not, there’s sure to be fireworks wherever you go. To really take the glitz and glam up a level, we suggest these dazzling hoop earrings from Swarovski and this gold glitter eyeshadow from Kiko. Besides Christmas, a firework display is the next best occasion to go all out with sparkles!

If you’re secretly a big kid who enjoys nothing more than waving a sparkler in the air, then this vanilla pumpkin hand cream from The Body Shop will be your new best friend for keeping your hands protected from the cold. And if you’re in it for the long haul, you’re going to need something to stay warm! We can’t get enough of this Hogwarts travel mug from Robert Dyas, a perfect way to add even more magic to the night.
