One of the cosiest nights of the year is finally upon us. With bonfires, sparklers, mulled drinks and fireworks just around the corner we are, of course, talking about Bonfire Night!
With the evenings getting colder and darker, it’s that time of year when we need to start reevaluating our wardrobes. Gone are floaty summer dresses and strappy sandals, and out come the cosy coats, boots and accessories of autumn and winter.
For Bonfire Night clothing in particular, warmth and comfort is key. However, wrapping up definitely doesn’t have to mean dulling down!
Whether you’re heading out to a Bonfire event or you’re watching the fireworks from the end of your street, here at Moda in Pelle we have you covered. We’ve put together a Bonfire Night style guide, showing you how to wrap up in style and create your own fireworks with all the season’s latest fashions!
First things first — your staple Bonfire Night outfit! The beginning of November is always a tricky season for clothing; it’s not quite frostbite-in-your-toes freezing, but it’s certainly a long way from summer!
In autumn, transitional clothing is key. This means layers, layers, layers! Opt for chunky knitwear with a lighter winter coat thrown over — you can always take this off once the Bonfire starts warming up.
Autumnal colours are also a must. Keep an eye out for burnt orange shades, earthy greens and versatile neutrals for a colour palette that just screams autumn goddess!
We all know and love the comfort offered by our favourite pair of jeans, so denim is another Bonfire Night essential! Keep it fashion forward yet practical with relaxed fit boyfriend jeans that will have you feeling and looking great all night long.
You’re outdoors, it’s late, and you’re going to be spending a lot of time on your feet. When it comes to Bonfire Night footwear, forget the stiletto heels — practical and comfortable flat boots are where its at!
You need functional footwear that will keep your feet warm, will remain comfortable all night long, and that is suitable for any outdoor or potentially muddy situations. You also, obviously, want to look fantastic!
Tick all the boxes and embrace military chic this season with the incredible Brandi Black Nubuck Winter Boots. With their unique metallic chain detailing and edgy lace up style, you’ll be dressed to impressed and ready to take on any weather or setting.
For the ultimate in comfort, opt for a pair of leather boots. The Jalisa Black Leather Boot features elasticated panels around the calf for the ultimate in comfort — perfect for a long evening out enjoying the season’s festivities!
What is any good outfit without accessories? Particularly in autumn and winter, accessories become an absolute must. From cosy wooly hats to statement scarves, here are our top picks for those looking to nail Bonfire Night chic.
A cosy scarf or collar
From huge, oversized ponchos to keep you super snug on the coldest of nights, through to slim knitted scarves for a sophisticated finish, we offer a wonderful selection of scarves to perfect complete your autumn winter look.
For Bonfire Night, how about the ultra luxe Faycollar Multicoloured Faux Fur Collar? With incredibly soft faux fur and an eye catching multicoloured design, this opulent collar will add a touch of instant glamour to your cosy Bonfire Night ensemble.

For Bonfire Night, add a touch of sass and sparkle to your look with the Jazminehat Grey Fabric Hat. The gorgeous firework-esque crystal detailing will ensure you stand out from the crowds for all the right reasons.
From clutching your mulled wine to waving sparklers, gloves are an essential for keeping your hands warm through all Bonfire Night throws at you! Match the little details in your Bonfire Evening look by opting for the Pioglove Grey Fabric Gloves. The grey shade and diamante studding will tie your hat to your gloves perfectly, while making sure you dazzle just as much as the fireworks!
