Fall is the perfect season to start getting cozy and whip out some beautiful and stylish outfits using layering as your tool to be original and show off your fashion. My Melrose believes everyone should have comfortable and stylish fall outfits that make you look and feel your best with little effort needed. For your day trip to the pumpkin patch this season, you should include warm layers that play with different textures, shapes and colors. There's always a fun challenge when incorporating trending fashion or simply styling to your body shape. Use this installment of the My Melrose Style Guide for inspiration when going with either your family, friends, or partner to the pumpkin patch to explore and get cute pictures for the fall season.
Pumpkin Patch Outfits with Graphic Tees
Pictured above is a My Melrose style by Sydney Cooper. She pairs the pink "Miss Popular" Short Sleeve Lil' Ms A Tiny Bit Dramatic t-shirt under the "Love Tree" Sweater Belted Trench Coat. The shirt is tucked into a pair of "Sweet Look" Dark Belted Flare Jeans set over brown "Top" 4" Lug Pleather Heeled Lace Up Booties.
Graphic tees are probably the easiest to style; you can wear them with just about anything. At My Melrose we mainly paired our Lil' Miss graphic tees with denim jeans in various styles.
First we have the pink "Miss Popular" Short Sleeve Lil' Ms A Tiny Bit Dramatic top layered under the white "Love Tree" Sweater Belted Trench Coat for an added sense of femininity and cozy elegance. Keeping in mind the flowy element of the added outerwear, we paired this top look with the "Sweet Look" Dark Belted Flare Jeans and added a little height with the brown "Top" 4" Lug Pleather Heeled Lace Up Booties. This a perfect "sweetheart" look; appropriate for family photos.
Our second option features the "Miss Popular" Short Sleeve Lil' Ms Shopaholic tucked into our "BR" Light 10" 5 Button Distressed Skinny Jeans finished with our Women’s Soda Canvas Lug Sole High Top Sneaker. This offers a sassy and youthful edgy look in the most basic sense. This is perfect for the gal that is not afraid to steer from the staple feminine look but still likes her trends.
The third selection we have is the "Miss Popular" Short Sleeve Lil' Ms Innocent But Don't Play w/Me top paired with the "Crystal Rock" Dark Tencel Skinny Jeans and the Women's Soda Canvas Lug Sole High Top Sneaker. This look is one for the dark side, and the gals that are sweet and secretly daring (hence the Lil' Miss shirt message LOL).
Our final pick for the pumpkin patch graphic tees set features the "Miss Popular" Short Sleeve Lil' Ms Life of the Party layered under the "Diamante" Long Acid Wash Denim Jacket. This top look needed a little unique twist in comparison to its denim counterparts so we chose the "Chocolate" 15" Cognac Full Zip Pleather Skirt as a more bold option and contrasted the color with the black "Wild" Lug Pleather Elastic 6 1/2" Booties. This look is perfect for the gal who loves photos for her Instagram page and knows she has style better than the average.
Fall Outfit Ideas with Layered Looks
Adorable and chic, this My Melrose look by Sydney Cooper features the "Ambiance" Long Sleeve Striped Sweater Top in black, mauve, white, and blue, the black "Mango" 16" Black Pleated A-Line Midi Skirt and the "Soda" 3" Lug Sole Suede Booties in black.
Combine warmth and funk with our camel "Sweet Look" Quilted Zip Up Bomber Jacket layered over the "Full Circle" Long Sleeve Yummy Super Cinched Printed Jersey Top. Keep things light with the "Blue Spice" 29" Light Wash Denim Skinny Jeans and the "Top" 4" Lug Pleather Heeled Lace Up Booties. This outfit for My Melrorse was styled by Sydney Cooper.
With cool autumn air comes the beginning of the layered looks part of the year. When you're at the pumpkin patch, it coud be a little chilly in the coming weeks (or it already is depending on where you are). Be prepared with some of the most goregous looks with layers from My Melrose.
The top look features the "Ikeddi" Long Sleeve Quilted Crop Jacket in burlwood layered over the "Ambiance" Long Sleeve Striped Sweater Top in black, mauve, white, and blue. Channeling a girly vibe, we added the "Mango" 16" Black Pleated A-Line Midi Skirt and finished the outfit with the "Soda" 3" Lug Sole Suede Booties in black. Look darling on your fall date to the pumpkin patch; so much your date will be looking at you more than the pumpkins!
The second outfit we put together for a pumpkin patch stroll features outerwear following the shacket trend. We chose the camel "Myth" Long Sleeve Two Pocket Boyfriend Button Down Top layered over the white "Superline" Basic Camisole Top. This top combination is worn with the "Wax" 27" Black Boyfriend Distressed Denim Jeans and completed with a pair of "Forever" 2" Platform Patent Booties. It's a basic edgy look for the influencer that loves showing their style paired with the latest fashion trend.
Last for this pumpkin patch outfit series highlights brown as a central theme. You'll be warm in the "Sweet Look" Quilted Zip Up Bomber Jacket paired over the "Full Circle" Long Sleeve Yummy Super Cinched Printed Jersey Top. Staying light on the color scheme, wear this combination with the "Blue Spice" 29" Light Wash Denim Skinny Jeans and end with staying in the earthy tones with the "Top" 4" Lug Pleather Heeled Lace Up Booties in tan.
Pumpkin Patch Outfits with Turtleneck Tops
Be fashionable and comfortable in this My Melrose look by Sydney Cooper. Start off in the blush "Factory Liq" Cozy Traditional Cardigan Sweater layered over the grey "Ambiance" Long Sleeved Ribbed Turtleneck Top and "Crystal Rock" 27" Medium Wash Distressed Denim Jeans. Top off this look with the "Forever" 3" Stack Suede Over the Knee Back Tie Boots for maximum coziness and added warmth to your stroll for the day. This look is appropriate for a family gathering, brunch with the gal pals, or a simple day out running errands or enjoying a casual weekend event.
Turtleneck tops are in and hot right now in pop culture with the Marilyn Monroe biopic Blonde released on Netflix last week. If you want ideas based on Monroe's vintage look, check out our previous blog post by Trent S. on her off screen looks. As for these looks with turtlenecks, they are meant to be a basic base to layered items we have in our My Melrose stores.
Our first look features the "Love Tree" Long Sleeve Turtleneck Knit Top in white layered under the "Love Tree" Long Sleeve Pleather Blazer in brown. Toning down the color scheme, we add the "Wax" 24" Dark Wash Denim Skinny Jeans for some contrast. Denim is a different play on shapes that make the blazer stand out while providing a fitted look to show off the legs. We complete the look with white "Top" 2" Stack Pleather Heeled Booties to match the color of the top.
Channeling coffee shop girl vibes, we have the grey "Ambiance" Long Sleeved Ribbed Turtleneck Top layered under the blush "Factory Liq" Cozy Traditional Cardigan Sweater for the ultimate coziness. Show off a litte edge with the innocent top combo with the "Crystal Rock" 27" Medium Wash Distressed Denim Jeans finished with the "Forever" 3" Stack Suede Over the Knee Back Tie Boots. The coffee shop girl loves her a warm pumpkin spice latte and look to pay homeage to the delicious winter squash at the local pumpkin patch.
For the lumberjack inspired gal, our final selection goes out to her. Start at the base of this look featuring the "Ambiance" Long Sleeve Casual Basic Turtleneck Shirt layered under the "Taxi" Sherpa Lined Plaid Patterned Heavy Jacket Plus in a hug of warmth. Sticking to a monotone under the outerwear's pop of color, we added the "Sweet Look" Super Dark Wash Denim Flare Jeans and finished with the brown "Forever" 3" Lug Suede Zip Up Heeled Bootie.
Be the Center of Attention with Fall Color Block Tops
Color block tops are a basic way to turn heads and go out with a statement. We've got two options that are bound to appease and draw attention to themselves.
Keeping a calm, cool aesthetic, we feature the "Chocolate" Long Sleeve Colorblock Sweater Top in a quad color combination of a dull gold, dark navy, white, and grey. Under this beautiful sweater top are the "Wax" 24" Light Wash Cuffed Ankle Grazers with the subtle beige "Atalina" Comfort Casual Moccasins. It's the cutest combination for a family photo at the pumpkin patch.
The other color block option we selected is great for a girl group photo at the pumpkin patch. This look features the rust "Full Circle" Long Sleeve Crisscross Knit Colorblock Sweater paired with the "BR" 26" Dark 10" 5-Button Distressed Cuffed Denim Jeans and the white "Top" 4 1/2" Platform Double Crisscross Heels.
Get Cozy with Pumpkin Patch Ready Sweaters
Sweaters are warm and basic way to dress for a day at the pumpkin patch.
Stick with a monotone and edgy look with our first selection featuring the cement colored "Poof" Shiny Chenille Knit Sweater paired with the "Wax" 27" Black Boyfriend Distressed Denim Jeans and the Women’s Soda Canvas Lug Sole High Top Sneaker. This is a quick and easy look to throw on if you're no too concerned with showing off or adhering to a specific fashion subculture.
The additional look to this sweater highlight channels a 90s grunge-esque look. My Melrose features the "No Comment" Long Sleeve V-Neck Striped Tatter Knit Sweater over the "BR" Med 10" Dark Wash Distressed Cuffed Denim Skinny Jeans tucked into the white "Wild" Lug Pleather Elastic 6 1/2" Booties. Put a grunge filter over a serious photo and you'll be sure to gain all the likes for creativity and theme matching with this outfit.
Outfits with No Layers for a Warmer Pumpkin Patch Experience
There's nothing better than keeping things simple; especially when it comes to our clothes. Some don't like all the layers because they might be naturally warm, or the climate currently doesn't call for all the layering just yet. We have a couple of outfits just for those people.
The first choice is sporty and ready for action (hence the rhinestone football purse). My Melrose features the "Ikeddi" Long Sleeve Plaid Heavy Button Up Shirt with the "Wax" 29" Light Wash Denim Skinny Jeans and the Women’s Soda Canvas Lug Sole High Top Sneakers. If you're a mom needing to be on her toes for her little one(s) this is a cute outfit for both a family photo and for when you need to chase your baby(ies) around the pumpkin patch when they get a little excited.
Our final outfit has somewhat of a 70s retro inspiration featuring the "FCT" Long Sleeve V-Neck Embroidered Knit Top. Modernize the top with a pair of "Blue Spice" 29" Light Wash Denim Skinny Jeans and "Top Guy" 1 1/2 Stacked Stretch Calf Boots. If you've got a set of hippie friends, take that group photo, not for the 'Gram, but the memory of the moment together.
