Gearing up for a jam-packed fall season complete with Halloween parties, snuggly movie nights with the family, and outings to the pumpkin patch? There are so many reasons to get excited about the fall, from the food to the fall-themed activities to the stunning autumn foliage. If you're planning to take your family to a pumpkin patch this season and maybe snap a few photos along the way, it only makes sense that you would all want to look good. In this post, we will look at a few fall apparel ideas you can use when going to the pumpkin patch.
Does anything say “I’m ready for muddy walks and fall foliage” quite like a rustic, chic pair of duck boots? When it comes to fall fashion, there are endless footwear options, but duck boots remain a quintessential fall staple. They are as cozy and practical as they are stylish, and they perfectly complement a fall getup, complete with a flannel button-up and blue jeans. Plus, when going to a pumpkin patch, you’re bound to run into a bit of mud and other messy, natural elements. So leave the ballet flats at home, and whip out your duck boots.
There’s no rule that says duck boots are the only fall fashion staple to wear to a pumpkin patch. If you prefer a longer style, consider a pair of cute rain boots or muck boots, both of which are ideal for a day out in the country. They serve to keep your feet warm and safe from water, mud, and other elements, and a good quality pair will last you for years.
No one likes accidentally stepping into a puddle and feeling the cold water seep through their shoes and into their socks. First, get yourself a sturdy pair of waterproof boots. Then, focus on keeping your feet ultra-warm while you brave the chilly fall weather and head to a pumpkin patch. Wool socks are your friend. Invest in a few pairs to keep you warm and cozy whenever you are braving the outdoors during the fall season. They’ll go nicely pulled up over your duck boots when you want to show off your socks or just tucked into your jeans under longer boots.
Do we even need to mention this one? Surely everyone knows fall is the season of flannel. It’s a great option to throw on when you are going to a pumpkin patch, anticipating lots of photos being taken for the ‘Gram, and you want to be the absolute picture of fall perfection. If you just so happen to be a flannel junkie and are planning on lots of fall outings this season, have a few plaid flannel shirt options on hand to keep you cozy and stylish.
Like plaid flannel button-ups, denim jackets are another notable fall fashion staple. If it’s a September afternoon and the weather is warm, throw a denim jacket over a T-shirt and button it up when you need to. If it’s a gray fall day with cool temperatures, wear the denim jacket over another thicker layer like a plaid flannel shirt. Not only is this a practical combination that will help keep you warm, but the denim-on-plaid flannel look also makes for an adorable autumn outfit.
Scarves are multi-functional. They can be worn for practical reasons, such as keeping your neck warm, and they can be used to accent a cute outfit. They’re the type of accessories that can be worn during all seasons, not just winter. So if you want to break out a cute plaid scarf or some other type of women’s scarf in a fall color, by all means, do it! It will go nicely with a long-sleeved henley or a denim jacket.
What better bottoms to wear to the pumpkin patch than some cute, timeless blue jeans? The cut doesn’t matter, so if you prefer skinny jeans, wear skinny jeans! If straight-leg jeans are more your style, throw on those! The wash of the jeans isn’t of much importance either, although dark colors tend to fit better with the fall backdrop. A pair of jeans, a flannel button-up, and your favorite pair of boots? Consider yourself ready for the pumpkin patch! If you need something a bit warmer on top, swap the plaid flannel for an oversized, chunky knit sweater in beige, brown, or another classic fall color.
