INSPIRATION AND ADVICE
WHAT TO WEAR ON BONFIRE NIGHT
By Maybelle Morgan, 3 November 2017
It’s that time of year again where safety-observing adults throw caution to the wind and brave the arctic November elements for a night of outdoor bonfire-based frivolity. It’s going to be cold. It’s probably going to be muddy and it’s likely there will be children at close-range armed with sparklers. So any prospective outfits need to be sturdy, warm and crowd-friendly. Thankfully, we’re trusting in Japanese model Miki Ehara and this textured cold-weather get-up. Here’s how to nail it…
Safety first? Nope. It’s all about warmth. So you’re going to want to layer up big time. Let black be the base of your outfit, cos hot dogs and toffee apples = stains (heck, you might even have your first mulled wine of the year). Go for a pleated midi shirt dress, which is ideal for adding fleecy/wool layers to without compromising on the feminine silhouette.
Next, add stompy Dr. Martens (bonus points to Miki’s eyelet-detailed boots) for navigating muddy terrain and clashing up the pretty pleated hem. For inferno-level warmth, it’s all about a satin quilted bomber, especially this dreamy floral print one with white shaggy collar. Finish off with a chain cross-body bag slung around you and you’re good to go.
