Did you use the Juno filter?
Ahh, fall. It’s the only time of the year when even the most rational city-dwelling folks get
the outdoors bug and descend upon apple orchards en masse. And if your weekend plans include heading up to the nearest farm to pick far too much fruit, you’ll definitely want to Instagram it. But what to wear? Well, since it’s at least ten degrees cooler, you can finally wear all of those cozy cold-weather clothes without breaking into a violent sweat. Should you need a little more guidance on what to wear in order to stage the perfect, idyllic photo in the forest, we can help. From sweaters to fleeces to boots, here are ideas all under $200 for your weekend apple picking needs.
Something Plaid (Obviously)
Sactuary Scout Ruffle Top
Instead of a grunge-inspired flannel, a ruffly blouse feels fresher.
Apple Bite-Proof Lipstick
Rimmel Provocalips 16 Hour Kiss Proof Lip Colour
Here’s snackproof lipstick that isn’t dry, indelible, and will look great in your Instagram photos.
For Lips That Look Great Without a Filter
Clinique Pop Lip Shadow Cushion Matte Lip Powder
Pat McGrath always taps on powder on top of lipstick for a lip look that pops in both Instagram and Steven Meisel photos. Clinique created a double-duty stick that creates the same effect.
A Colorful, Cozy Sweater
Mango Fringes cable-knit sweater
It should be thick, chunky and in a color that contrasts nicely to all of the foliage.
A Sweater-Weather Fragrance
DOLCE & GABBANA The One
A warm musky and fruity scent that snuggles perfectly into knit collars.
A Cardigan to Swaddle Yourself In
H&M Fluffy Cardigan
You can’t go wrong with something that has fluffy in the description. Added bonus: a black bow on the back that’ll pop in pictures.
A Sooty-Black Mascara
LANCÔME Monsieur Big Mascara
A mascara that won’t irritate your eyes, and will give you fluffy lashes to go with your fuzzy sweater.
A Pair of Cropped Jeans
Madewell The High-Rise Slim Boyjean
Perfectly cropped to show off your boots and in a classic, non-destroyed wash so you don’t feel too trendy.
A Palette That’s Actually Useful
RMS BEAUTY Signature Set Pop Collection

A Witchy Fall Floral Dress
Topshop Foil Floral Plunge Wrap Dress
KAT VON D Tattoo Liner
An eyeliner so long-lasting, it will survive workdays and workout classes (hey, apple picking can count as cardio).
Boots That Won’t Sink Into the Grass
Sam Edelman Taye suede ankle boots
Fall means you can
finally wear your boots but orchards weren’t made for sharp little heels. A block style is way more comfortable.
Nike Vintage Blazer leather-trimmed suede high-top sneakers
For All the Kira Kiras
JINsoon Shake It Nail Polish

A Floppy Hat
Halogen Wool Floppy Hat
If you were ever tempted to try out a floppy hat, there’s no better time than at the orchard where you won’t be the only one in one.
Or Maybe Try a Beret
ASOS Wool Beret
Of course if you’re feeling more brave, a beret is the trendier, street style–inspired way to go.
Spray This on Before You Go
Tavi Hair Texturizing Spray

A new texturizing spray that isn’t sticky and smells good, yet not so good as to attract orchard flies.
A Snuggly, Gorpcore Fleece
Patagonia Los Gatos Fleece Jacket
