How To Dress For Bonfire Night

Whether you’re in the city or the countryside this weekend, add a sartorial spark to your bonfire night ensemble with warm hues, woolen textures and a Maxwell Scott leather crossbody bag (because you’ll need two hands for sparklers). Here’s how to dress for bonfire night…

Rooftop Fireworks

If you don’t have the means to travel into the leafy depths of the countryside this weekend, venture to your local watering hole in the city instead. A rooftop bar, such as Radio in London or Cloud 23 in Manchester, offers the perfect backdrop to experience bonfire night’s spectacular fireworks across the cityscape. Keep your weekend style casual with a blend of woolen textures and a tailored coat for added elegance. The Lucca crossbody is the ideal size to accompany you both through the day and then later at the bar. Wear propped on your shoulder using the adjustable Italian leather strap to exude a smarter evening look.

Park Bonfires

A bonfire night bash on your doorstep involves no hassle and some good old timeless nostalgia. Head to your local park in the suburbs with some sprinklers and your favourite woolly hat and get into the seasonal spirit. A knitted jumper in a complementary autumnal tone is a must to keep warm when you step away from the glow of the bonfire. Team with a classic pair of indigo jeans and a suede monk strap boot. To finish off this bonfire night ensemble, wrap a woolen scarf around your neck to keep out the cold. Pack some essentials to take with you in our new Santino L rucksack and wear on your back for a laidback weekend aesthetic.

Country Beacons

Sometimes, escaping to the country is the best thing for your mind and soul, especially during Autumn when the seasons are so apparent in their nature. This time of year reminds us that change can be incredibly beautiful. If you are fortunate enough to live in the countryside or have friends in rural places, spending this bonfire weekend in the middle of nowhere offers a much-needed break from everyday stresses. Wrap up warm in a long tailored coat in this season’s trending check fabric. A fairisle jumper is a classic staple to add to your bonfire night look in the country. Team with your favourite jeans and a pair of sturdy Chelsea boots. Throw our new and revived Palermo bucket bag over your shoulder and you’re all set for an evening of fireworks in the fields.

Date Night Illuminations

If a romantic evening of pie and peas at the pub is on the cards for your bonfire weekend, keep your style relaxed with a twist of tailoring. Sartorially speaking, bonfire night doesn’t scream fashion – but if you’re looking to impress a date or a loved one, there’s no harm in throwing an Espom coat over your favourite cashmere jumper. Roll some cotton trousers up slightly at the bottom and pair with a suede Chelsea boot with a rubber sole. Throw the Santino M messenger over your shoulder with the nylon webbing strap to fully execute this look. Watching the fireworks with your love has never looked so smart.
