Fall Pumpkin Patch Outfits FAQs

How should I dress for a pumpkin patch?

A t-shirt, skinny jeans, boots, and (optional) flannel are all you need for a comfy pumpkin patch experience.

What shoes should I wear to pumpkin patch?

Either tall or short boots work well for pumpkin picking.

What do kids wear to pumpkin patch?

Something you don’t mind getting dirty but still comfy. For walking kids, boots are a must and overalls paired with a flannel pull together this cute look.

Can I wear sandals to a pumpkin patch?

I don’t recommend wearing sandals. You want to wear a pair of comfortable tennis shoes or tall boots as the ground may be uneven, and perhaps muddy which will make walking in sandals quite difficult.

Complete the Pumpkin Patch Outfit Look

Women’s Pumpkin Patch Outfit

An orange flannel, pair of black booties, and a skinny jean are all you need to complete your cute pumpkin patch outfit.

Kid’s Pumpkin Patch Outfit

Overalls, rain boots, and a flannel are a perfect pumpkin picking outfit for kids.
