What to Wear for Fall Activities

The approach of fall means lots of goodbye to summer—and hello to a new season of activities. If you are wondering what to wear for these events, we have you covered. From the best jeans to the ideal outerwear jacket, we’ll make sure you’re comfortable and stylish. Check out our favorite outfits for all your autumn activities.

What Should I Wear on a Nature Hike?

Nothing beats a walk or hike through the breathtaking autumn scenery. To fully enjoy the hike, you will want to make sure you are dressed right, so you can focus on the beautiful nature around you and not on how much your feet hurt.

First, you will want a sturdy pair of hiking boots. It’s worth investing a little extra money to make sure they are comfortable and will support you through mud and puddles. Next, we recommend a pair of active pants, leggings, or jeans that you don’t mind getting a little dirty. Not only do full-length pants help protect you from bugs and the sun, but they will also keep you warm. Boot-cut jeans are great for wearing over chunky hiking boots. Alternatively, you can try straight-leg jeans and just roll them up if they get in the way.

Along the same lines, you will want to dress in layers, so you don’t overheat or get too cold. Wear a short-sleeved T-shirt, a long-sleeved T-shirt, or a sweatshirt, and then add a jacket. A lightweight fleece jacket or vest is great for a warmer fall day, but if it’s on the colder side, opt for a down coat.

Of course, taking your dog on a nature hike is a great way to get your pup out of the house. If any furry friends are joining you, we recommend a squall jacket to help keep their body warm and their tail wagging.

What Should I Wear to a Football Game?

Whether you are attending your son’s high school football game or a college matchup, you will want to wear warm clothing since you usually are not moving around all that much.

For starters, we recommend a pair of jeans or a warm pair of leggings for sitting on those chilly aluminum bleachers. Skinny jeans are a great choice if you plan to wear any boot because they naturally tuck into your shoes, giving you a stylish look. If it is brutally cold out, double-layer socks underneath your boots to keep your feet warm. Winter accessories like hats and gloves can also be your friend when the sun goes down. Take a throw blanket to cover up even more.

Deciding on a coat is the hardest part if it is a warmer fall day. A fleece jacket or any lightweight jacket is usually a great choice. You could also throw on a vest with a heavier sweatshirt for a different look. If it’s cold outside, wearing a winter coat is your best bet. You will also want to think about wearing a long thermal shirt and a heavier sweater underneath your jacket to maximize warmth. Wearing women’s thermals or long underwear is also a great way to keep the chill away.

What Should I Wear to the Pumpkin Patch?

One of the best parts of fall is going to a pumpkin patch with the family. The pumpkin patch is also a great place to take family pictures, which means you will want to dress warmly and still be fashionable, so you’re ready for your close-up. Going to the pumpkin patch on a warmer fall day helps keep the kids happy and warm.

Since you’re going on a warmer day, you have more choices for lightweight jacket or vest options. One of our favorites is a women’s fleece vest because it’s warm and stylish, and looks great with almost any outfit. Paired with skinny jeans or straight-leg jeans, it’s the perfect casual look. Finally, duck boots are your go-to shoes when it comes to being in style and warm, and with so many color options, they can easily match your outfit.

What Should I Wear to a Fall Party?

As fun as fall parties can be, deciding what to wear can be stressful, as you’ll want to be comfortable but still dressed up.

This is a great time to pull out one of your favorite sweaters. A cashmere sweater paired with a stylish pair of pants is always a great go-to look for any gathering. You can even wear your favorite cardigan sweater with a dressier shirt underneath. Accent jewelry can help dress up these sweater looks.

Another great option is throwing on a sweater dress, tights, and a tall pair of boots. This look is especially great if you’re attending a dinner party.

What’s the Fall Essential You Need for Fall Activities?

We all know how unpredictable fall can be weather-wise. One moment, you’re warm and cozy, bundled up in a thick jacket. The next moment, you’re sweating in the sun, wishing the clouds would come back. Fall weather can vary from one minute to the next, meaning you need the fall essential everyone is talking about: the “shacket.”

What’s a shacket? It’s a cross between a button-down shirt and a jacket. Although these shirt jackets look like shirts—typically double-breasted with buttons running down the front—they feel like fall. You’ll find shackets in sweater material as well as in fleece and flannel. Worn over a T-shirt, it gives you the warmth of a lightweight jacket but the look of a nice shirt. And it’s remarkably versatile. You can wear it indoors belted or buttoned up over leggings. Or you could use it as your fair-weather fall jacket when you don’t need a thick lining or a hood.

Before you know it, fall will be here, and you don’t want to be unprepared for these almost inevitable activities. Hopefully, these wardrobe styling tips will make dressing for your fall activities less stressful. Not to mention updating your fall wardrobe can also help ease the pain of bidding farewell to summer.
