The answer to the title is… no. Orange is not required. That said, I am a lover of orange, and can’t help myself when it comes to a local jaunt with pumpkins and fall leaves — orange seems like the obvious choice. But if breaking out orange cords and pumpkin-embroidered sweaters aren’t your thing…I’ve still gotcha covered.
Cute Pumpkin Patch Outfits
Below are five fall adventuring outfits with no orange in sight. Promise. And don’t worry — these looks are extremely doable even with your three-year-old in one arm and two pumpkins in the other (if that’s humanly possible). Backpacks are a definite for some hands-free picking, as are stylish yet patch-friendly shoes that you can dirty up. You’ll be styled to perfection but ready to get wet & muddy — if completely necessary.
P.S. A bunch of the items in the looks below are from one of our favorite outdoor gear sites, Backcountry. Because we work with them so often, we have our own discount code to share, THEMOMEDIT, which will take 15% off *most* full-price styles.
Outfit 1: Classic Fall With A Touch Of Vintage
This outfit is my favorite because it’s a mix of styles; classic(ish) and vintage. I always love a mix-matched look…especially when I could kind of pass as a baseball mom. (I know soccer moms exist, but what about baseball moms? They’re never really mentioned??) It’s the Converse, collared flannel and baseball hat that do it for me. Such a timeless look that’s perfect for chilly autumn days. And that fleece jacket? SO good.
Outfit 2: Stylish Adventuring
This one’s subtly boho and utilitarian, and I’m looooving it. The “choco latte” color of the jacket is so unique and absolutely beautiful. I love it with this khaki Fjallraven Kanken backpack, a tried-and-true option for carrying allll of the necessities. Bonus: Tie a bandana around your neck or ponytail for an easy bit of added flair.
Outfit 3: Lumberjack… But Cute
You simply can’t go wrong with a plaid shacket for pumpkin-related outings. You just can’t. It’s perfect with that lovely (and insanely comfy) burnt sienna colored hoodie peaking out from underneath. This look screams fall and I couldn’t be more into it.
Outfit 4: Break Out The Black Jeans
It’s time to reintroduce black jeans into your wardrobe (if they ever even left in the first place). They go so well with some trusty Doc Martens and a blue denim jacket (or hey, a black one, if you’re feelin’ real dark & moody). I’m loving lightening up the look with a light-colored thermal and a pop of pastel purple on the hat. Such a pretty color combo; black, white and purple. Who knew?
Outfit 5: Playful, Hipster Vibes
I’m ALL in on this one. It’s too fun not to be. First of all, this jacket seems like one of my dreams. Like military, but softer. Love the silhouette and material. Free People kills it every fall/winter season with their super cool thermals. The added design brings so much to an everyday ‘fit. And as for this sneaker/boot hybrid… simply rad. Those are the words that come to mind.
Fall is way too fun to not dress seasonally appropriately — and by that I mean in your pumpkin patch and apple orchard best. Happy picking! Oh, and don’t be afraid of orange! You’d be surprised…
For the pinners…
