How to decide what to wear to go pumpkin picking
Your perfect pumpkin picking outfit is going to depend on a few factors - but the weather is up there!

Whether you're going full witch, killer clown or channelling your inner Wednesday Addams, rocking a costume is the best way to start your Halloween off on a high - go in a group for even more fun!
A witch on her day off
For something a little more subtle, why not channel your inner witch - but on her day off. Think chunky boots, striped tights and of course a hat, to give you all the witchy vibes without the broomstick.
The subtle spooky one
Okay, so you don't want to go full on witch BUT still want to channel a few spooky vibes? Try a Halloween/ horror print dress or skirt and build your look around that for a subtle yet spooky outfit you ca even recycle all year round!
Classic fall vibes
If going full Halloween crazy isn't for you, no problemo! Why not stick to classic autumnal vibes for your trip. Think cosy jumpers and chunky boots, all in that gorgeous autumnal colour palette of oranges, reds and browns.
Dreamy date night
Going out on the town? Nah! This season get your boo to take you out pumpkin picking! For an outfit that will leave them howling at the moon, pick your favourite mini dress in an autumnal colour - or just plain black for the chic drama - and add some cute jewellery to really elevate the look. P.S. now is a great time to start transitioning into more "winter" style fabrics like velvet, corduroy or plaid for ultimate cosy vibes.
I know what you're thinking, pumpkin patch means full orange to coordinate right? WRONG! you can give off your best spooky vibes without going completely jack-o'-lantern crazy! Putting together a more alternative outfit is just as fun - the more you stand out against all that orange the better!
A graphic tee solves everything
You really can't go wrong with a graphic t-shirt! Tucked into jeans or a cute mini skirt, they really are a throw on staple for any occasion. Bonus points if your tee is horror movie related!
