Top tips for staying warm on Bonfire Night

Keeping Warm
Bonfire Night

One of the best parts of autumn is Bonfire Night. Whether your favourite fireworks are Catherine-wheels, roman candles or sparklers, the trick to making the most out of Bonfire Night is making sure you stay warm. With so much standing and socialising outside, it’s important to protect yourself against the elements with lots of cosy accessories, warm layers and insulating coats.

So if you’re heading out to a fireworks display this Bonfire Night, Life & Style have put together three tips to help you stay nice and toasty while you enjoy the show.

Layer up

Layering up is a must when the temperature drops. From insulating knits to slogan sweatshirts, our selection of women’s jumpers will make layering in style effortless this Bonfire Night.

Match your jumper with a stylish pair of skinnies and boots

Turtle and cowl neck jumpers pair perfectly with your fave pair of skinnies and boots, while an orange knit is a brilliant bonfire-themed option. For a luxe look that will keep you toasty from the first firework until the last, our faux-fur cuff jumpers are an affordable way to stay stylish. Whether you’re teaming them with checked trousers or wearing them with wellies, we have plenty of designs that will get your knitwear noticed.


When you’re standing still admiring fireworks, it’s not long before you start to feel the chill. Cosy accessories are essential for keeping cold winds at bay. Cuddle up with one of our stylish pom-pom or blanket scarfs and protect your head with a bobble hat in grey, navy or pink. If you’re looking for matching accessories, then you can’t go wrong with our trendy burgundy chenille beanie hat and scarf.

Our gloves come in a range of colours and styles so you can hold your sparkler without feeling the cold

There’s nothing worse than holding a sparkler with frozen fingers, so to keep your mitts warm and safe from sparks, why not take a look at our selection of gloves? From faux fur-trimmed to cable-knitted, we have plenty of styles that will protect your hands from the elements. Still want to be able to use your phone? Our fingerless and touch screen gloves mean that you’ll never have to choose between toasty fingers and capturing that perfect firework photo again.

Stay snug

If there’s one thing that’s going to help you battle against a bitterly cold Bonfire Night then it’s a coat. For an easy to wear and effortlessly on-trend look, try our borg coat. With a longline design, it’s just the thing to keep out the cold. Pair it with knee high boots for a sophisticated feel, or dress it down with trainers for an off-duty vibe.

The most essential item of the night is a coat

Shower-resistant padded coats keep the rain away and come in standout colours

While it would be great if we could enjoy clear skies every Bonfire Night, the weather often has other ideas. Luckily, our shower-resistant padded coats will ensure that even a spot of drizzle won’t dampen your fun. Featuring a high neck and insulating padding, not only will our seasonal padded coats keep you cosy this Bonfire Night, but the stand-out designs in mustard and green will add a pop of colour to your outerwear.

Dressing warmly to watch the fireworks is easy when you venture out with these essentials. Head over to George for the latest styles for women and kids and layer up with our seasonal pieces.
