‘Tis the season for meandering through orange fields of joy (also known as the humble pumpkin patch) and embracing everything nature has to offer in the most magical season change of the year. Whether it be as part of a Blair Waldorf worthy pumpkin pie, to carve alongside a mulled cider, or simply to grab a pic for the ‘gram (no judgement here), dressing for your trip to the farm is peak autumn goals if we ever did see it.
Pantone called and they want their autumn colour swatches back, because if you’re not channelling the rust/sage/orange and chocolate shades whilst strutting the muddy trenches of your local PYO patch then you’re doing it wrong. Sorry, we don’t make the rules. Keep scrolling to see the outfits Team Zoella are going to be rocking this season whilst pushing a wheelbarrow of vegetable goodness.

Pumpkin picking is an autumn rite of passage and I am SO here for it. Pumpkin carving, not so much, but a wholesome walk around a gorgeous field of orange deliciousness is a big fat yes from me. I’ve gone for quite a dressy ‘fit as I’m imagining it transferring into a brunch and let’s be real, autumnal drinks (aka any drink in the cooler months) which I feel like a blazer is always perfect for. I ADORE this scarf from Ganni and am prepared to eat beans on toast for the rest of the year to own it. Finish off with some chunky boots and it’s the perfect farming outfit!

I made the mistake of wearing Converse to a pumpkin patch a few years back and they didn’t see Christmas so I won’t be doing that again. This year, I’m sticking to appropriate footwear with a pair of glorified wellington boots teamed with brown dungies, 70s florals and a cosy fleece to keep me warm when I’m out there fondling the gourds.
I absolutely love going pumpkin picking! I usually stay clear of anything white or light coloured, especially in the UK when it’s likely to be rainy and muddy. This year I’ll probably wear some black jeans and turtleneck, paired with a big comfy gilet and some sturdy boots like Dr Martens. I usually go pretty light on the clothing cause stomping around the field lifting pumps ends up actually being a pretty good workout ha!
I cannot wait for pumpkin picking this year, one thing I’ve learnt and will make sure I don’t get wrong this year is wearing the right footwear is crucial. I always end up covered in mud and freezing when I visit a PYO pumpkin patch, probably because I always spend ages deciding on the perfect one. Layers and lots of warm accessories are my friends! I just bought these north face boots and I’m obsessed, I’d pair them with some nice leggings, a big cosy jumper and a classic parka jacket.

I’ve gone for cool and cosy with this outfit. Straight leg leather trousers are a bit edgy and much more interesting than jeans. Best hoodies are from Future self, so so warm and soft, I’d wear this with a khaki jacket so it just looks cream with a pop of blue poking out at the sleeve. Finish it off with a pair of Veja trainers that will last you right through to super cold boot season and they haven’t been out of style for years!
My nephews are roping me into taking them pumpkin picking this year which means I’ll need to have very practical clothing, ready to run after a 4-year-old when he tried to eat snails, so I’ll be going pretty casual. Black jeans and a rusty jumper I think for the ultimate autumnal feel. Indestructible boots and a big ol’ scarf to wrap more pumpkins in when we fill up the wheelbarrow.
