Plus Size Bonfire Night Outfit

Plus Size Bonfire Night Outfit | Plus Size Life.co.ukWith autumn looming, I can’t help but to get excited about Bonfire Night! Bonfire Night is exactly what it sounds like–a night of roaring bonfires, mugs of hearty chili, fireworks and sparklers held on the 5th of November in the UK and this lovely plus size bonfire night outfit will keep you warm and cosy and looking spectacular!

This outfit combines some of my favourite things that every curvy girl can pull off: coloured skinny jeans, a flattering top and tall boots. Most specifically, this outfit features two ultra trendy items: the marsala red Melissa McCartney skinnies and the scarf in this season’s must-have print: tartan.

A few things to remember when dressing for bonfire night:

  1. Wear thick and comfy boot socks
  2. Remember that you’ll be around quite a lot of smoke, so wear the right fabrics!
  3. Fabrics like wool and machine washable blends and cotton are best since they can be laundered at home to remove the smoky smell. They can also be treated with a vinegar rinse if the smell still lingers.
