What to Wear While Fruit Picking

Fall is a fabulous time of year, is it not? There are so many activities to do. And it just so happens that most of them seem to revolve around picking fruits.

Apple picking and pumpkin picking each require a certain kind of outfit that say “Hey, I’m outside, and I’m outdoorsy and I love doing outdoor activities.” Yes, that’s right. Even if you don’t agree, we all know you’re only going fruit picking because your girlfriend won’t leave you alone about it.

Anyways, here’s what to wear on your excursion so you can at least look the part as you tote away 50 lbs of apples, pumpkins, or whatever damn fruit you(r girlfriend) desire(s).


U vest

It doesn’t matter if you never wear it again. A vest makes or breaks your fruit picking outfit.
Ultra Light Down Vest, $59.90 uniqlo.com.

Flannel Button Down


Just like a vest, a flannel button down is a must. In it you’ll look like you know what you’re doing, even if you hate what you’re doing.
Woolrich Miners Wash Button-Down Shirt, $59 urbanoutfitters.com.



Forgo the jeans or nice chinos for a pair of rugged carpenter pants that look like they’ve already taken a beating you’re unfortunately about to put them through. Plus, Gap offers an array of pretty darn affordable trousers, so why not?
Carpenter slim, gap.com $59.95.

The Boots


The all-time classic Rough Lands boot would go great with your apple picking outfit. Don’t worry though, we won’t tell anyone your girlfriend controls you.
