You know what September Saturdays and Sundays are for in Slovenia and central parts of Europe? Well, you probably do, if you are going to harvest grape vines or you came on Brunette from Wall Street looking for that chic outfit, you could wear for your trip to the countryside this weekend.
Nevertheless, if came here just to find some new chic ways to style your hiking boots, then I must tell you, Saturdays here are not just for hiking in the mountains. No! Surely we are climbing, although not on the rocks, but on steep hillsides and trees while picking the ripped fruit.
Yes, Saturdays here are for the autumnal harvest. For picking grapes and apples. And yes, autumnal harvest requires a special outfit. But don’t worry I have you covered on this.
Starting with what to wear when picking grapes. Ps. More autumn harvest outfits are coming on Brunette from Wall Street later. That is when we I eat all these grapes I have just picked.
WHAT TO WEAR FOR HARVEST IN AUTUMN
I already shared some of my tips on how to dress for grape picking with you last year. Over here, remember? Anyway, those were some general tips for what to wear to the grape harvest I gave you.

Moreover, you can wear these outfits for the city this weekend too. You know, the gorpcore fashion trend and so? I told you hiking boots are a must have shoes for autumn 2018.

As you read, dressing up for harvest this season is easy if you follow the latest fashion trends. And no, I don’t mean only wearing this season’s most fashionable colours and hiking boots. No!
It turns out that the must-have accessory you should wear when going to the harvest, picking grapes, is also the must have accessory for autumn winter 2018. Yes, it’s the gloves I’m writing about.

Either way, we all know where you will end up at the end. In the wine cellar sipping a glass of wine or sitting on the bench eating grapes.

#1 TWEED JACKET AND JEANS
Starting with what I was wearing for the grape harvest last year. A chic tweed jacket, straight leg jeans and Isabel Marant Bobby sneakers. Guess what? These wedged sneakers are back in style. Thinking better, this shouldn’t be a surprise at all. I mean they do look a bit like the hiking boots, don’t they? Minus the hight. Even so, I can assure you they don’t slip. Well, at least not in my case. And our vineyard lies on a very steep hillside.
About the tweed jacket. Shop my favourites by clicking on the jackets below.
#2 CASHMERE SWEATER AND CARGO PANTS
Cargo pants are not only the most fashionable trousers of the season but also the legit working pants. That is for hard and dirty work as is the harvesting and grape picking. Nevertheless, you need to style the cargo pants with something slightly more elegant. You know, to make sure you follow the grape harvest etiquette I wrote about here.
So what to wear with cargo pants for harvest or even for a day off duty in the city? Chic cashmere sweater of course. Or at least a basic chic wool sweater.
#3 RIDING BOOTS AND STIRRUPS
I told you this outfit will shock you. Not because of the riding boots obviously. But because of the stirrups. 80s are back! For grape picking too.
That is as long as you don’t turn up in the vineyard wearing a flashy 80s inspired jumpsuit. At least not in my vineyard! I still haven’t forgotten my grandma wearing her ultra violet jumpsuit 20 years ago. I just can’t. It was horrendous. Not to say disrespectful.
Ps. You can read all about what from the 80s is back in fashion over here.
#4 RAINBOOTS AND STRAIGHT LEG WOVEN PANTS
Chances you will have to pick the grapes in a sparkling or at least in the mist and mud are quite high this harvest season. Meaning you might have to dress for a harvest in the rain. Style your rainboots with fashionable straight leg woven pants this season.
And don’t forget the gloves. They make this outfit fancier. And even more fashionable.
#5 HIKING BOOTS AND HEAD SCARF
Lastly, harvest outfit with the IT shoes of the season. The hiking boots. Ps. Marisa, I found some under $200 hiking boots just for you. You should style them with the slip leopard top or a crisp white tank top that is the next IT top for a grape harvest in Portugal. See below.
Anyway, this was a tip for you if you have to pick grapes when it’s hot. Although looking at the weather forecast for this weekend over here, you better wear layers. Besides hiking boots with a tweed jacket look so chic, don’t they? Not to mention fashionable. Tweed is in fashion this season too.
Same goes for the headscarf. I only wish I knew how to tie it better. I had to tie back my scarf several times. But I learned my lesson. I’m getting this headband for the next time.
I’m also adding some of my favourite designer hiking boots. To wear them out and about in the city.
Ps. Don’t forget to save, pin (P button is in the left bottom corner) and print these fashion cheat sheets. Especially if you are actually hosting a harvest this season. Believe me, it often turns out that most of your friends don’t even know wine comes from the grapes and have no idea how to dress for picking grapes.
