It’s that time of the year when the sun is starting to set sooner, and the night gets chillier. Outdoor activities will begin to make their way indoors. However, now is the perfect time of the year to cuddle up near fires. Here is what to wear while sitting around a cozy bonfire.
To start with, everyone outside should consider adding additional warmth to their head. Keeping the extremities snug (e.g., head, feet, hands) will go a long way in assuring your night is comfy. Wearing a winter beanie is the ideal way to do this while still looking stylish. Even wearing a traditional cap would provide benefits in blocking the sun while it’s still setting. There are many brands and designs to choose from for your headwear.
Dressing in layers will help you adjust to the constantly changing temperatures of the cooling night and the warmer fire. Arc’teryx clothing has many options to mix and match. You could get a fleece sweater to wear underneath a waterproof coat or find a puffer jacket to wear above your cardigan.
Fitted but comfortable, bottoms are best to wear while sitting around a cozy bonfire. Wearing snug pants is crucial, so you don’t inadvertently trip, get them dirty, or get caught on anything—you wouldn’t want to fall into the fire accidentally! Since you’ll be lounging around for hours, you also need something comfortable.
Finally, wearing a good pair of winter shoes is vital for hanging out near a bonfire. Just like how wearing a hat has a huge role in keeping us warm, so does choosing the right type of shoes. Depending on the weather, you might want to consider wearing waterproof boots. It’s never fun to have cold toes. Flat-bottomed shoes are better than heels, just in case there is dirt. Similarly, pick a shoe that is easy to clean.
When deciding how to dress for a bonfire, it’s important to balance style with practicality. Make sure that whatever you choose is something that makes you feel good but also will keep you warm, dry, and clean by the end of the night.
