The Best Reason to Go Apple-Picking Is the Selfie

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
$89 at Revolve

Instead of a grunge-inspired flannel, a ruffly blouse feels fresher.

Apple Bite-Proof Lipstick

Rimmel Provocalips 16 Hour Kiss Proof Lip Colour
$7 at Ulta

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
$20 at Clinique

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
$60 at Mango

It should be thick, chunky and in a color that contrasts nicely to all of the foliage.

A Sweater-Weather Fragrance

$94 at Sephora

A warm musky and fruity scent that snuggles perfectly into knit collars.

A Cardigan to Swaddle Yourself In

H&M Fluffy Cardigan
$40 at H&M

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
$25 at Ulta

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
$128 at Nordstrom

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

A Witchy Fall Floral Dress

$100 at Topshop

Make Stevie Nicks proud.

KAT VON D Tattoo Liner
$20 at Sephora

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
$160 at Net-a-Porter

Fall means you can finally wear your boots but orchards weren’t made for sharp little heels. A block style is way more comfortable.

Cool Sneakers

Nike Vintage Blazer leather-trimmed suede high-top sneakers
$100 at Net-a-Porter

Wear it with jeans and a fleece for a gorpcore-inspired lewk.

For All the Kira Kiras

JINsoon Shake It Nail Polish

$65 at & Other Stories

If forest green isn’t your thing, it also comes in other seasonally appropriate shades like burgundy and mustard yellow.

Selfie-Friendly Sunglasses

Because squinting doesn’t make for a good picture.

A Flattering Balm to Tuck Into Pockets

Sisley Paris Phyto-Lip Twist Tinted Lip Balm
$50 at Nordstrom

The fanciest tinted chapstick you will ever own, and will give a flattering flush to your lips.

A Floppy Hat

Halogen Wool Floppy Hat
$39 at Nordstrom

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
$16 at ASOS

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
$26 at Tavi Hair

A new texturizing spray that isn’t sticky and smells good, yet not so good as to attract orchard flies.

A Snuggly, Gorpcore Fleece

Because who doesn’t want a big, warm hug while eating apple pie?

A Colorful Lightweight Wool Coat

Mango Unstructured mohair-blend coat
