Bonfire Night is almost here! The time of year where we spend an evening oohing and aahing as fireworks light up the sky, gorge on toasted marshmallows and toffee apples, and huddle around Guy Fawkes on the fire to keep warm.
It’s also the time where our wardrobes transition from thin summer fabrics, to winter knits and lots of layers. This year, make sure you stay super snug and stylish with the help of our winter warmer edit, featuring all the essential, on-trend AW18 picks.
Lucky for you oversized, padded bombers and shearling-lined biker jackets are key trends this season, so the shops are bursting with coats that’ll stand the test of a chilly November evening. If you’re going to be outside all night, look out for faux fur-lined jackets – perfect for your local bonfire event.
Our pick: Wool-blend coat, £79.99, H&M
Stay warm with a statement knit, whether that’s a super-soft cashmere jumper or an uber on-trend slogan sweater – it’s time to ditch your tatty hoodie and embrace the new sweater trends. Think layering and you’ll stay nice and toasty. Go for comfort as well as style and opt for collars to suit the occasion. At the park? You’ll want a chunky roll neck. Rooftop bar? Go for a stylish-yet-functional boat neck.
Our pick: Button detail jumper, £34, Topshop
Say so long to boring hats and reinvent this season’s hallmark. Beanies get the fashion week makeover with colour pops of tomato red and orange, and bobble hats get exaggerated with multi-coloured pompoms and faux-fur bobbles. Shake things up this year and go for a brightly-coloured fisherman beanie or a bobble with furry pompom ears.
Our pick: Fisherman hat, £12, Topshop
Your new-season boots are going to face all kinds of weather, so you need a sturdy pair that’ll last all autumn and beyond. Go for ones with solid heels to prevent any embarrassing sinking in the muddy field. Or if you’re lucky enough to watching the fireworks from a city rooftop somewhere, try some on-trend sock boots to keep your ankles nice and toasty.
Our pick: Leather high heel ankle boots with faux pearls details, £95.99, Zara
You’ll be spending the night, sparkler in hand, writing your name in the sky so stay safe and warm with some essential gloves or mittens. The humble glove has been reinvented so, as well as your classic wool, leather and suede options hitting the high street, we’re also seeing interesting detailing such as studs and embellishment. You’ll have plenty of winter warmers to choose from to finish off your Bonfire Night look in style.
Our pick: Grey faux fur mittens, £16, Next
