8 Pumpkin-Themed Things You Need This Fall

Question for you: what can’t a pumpkin do? It’s certainly a staple of harvest-season table centerpieces; it’s creepy-slash-adorable when carved into a Jack-o-lantern. It’s decadently delicious as pie or flavoring for the famous spiced latte. Heck, it even turns into a carriage to whisk Cinderalla off to the ball! 

Yes, the humble gourd symbolizes all the best things about autumn…so why not wear it to get yourself the Halloween spirit? Cupshe’s pumpkin-themed offerings will jumpstart the fall cozies and get you (and the kids, too) ready for fall. Here’s just a few of our favorite pumpkin-centric styles.

Picture this scenario: your office sends around a memo that encourages the staff to dress up for Halloween. Clearly, donning last year’s ubiquitous “sexy cat” outfit, complete with leotard and fishnets, is out of the question. Play along in a fun but work-appropriate way with a cheery fit-and-flare frock printed with laughing jack-o-lanterns. This dress would look adorable with ballet flats and a skinny metallic belt—utterly feminine and charming. If it’s too chilly for that, you can pair it with boots and layer it with a sweater on top so that just the skirt shows through. If you’re going to rock it during the weekend, pair it with a denim jacket and your favorite sneakers for a more casual vibe.

Jack-O-Lantern Print Dress, $19.99

It’s always bittersweet when summer ends, but if there’s one thing about colder temps that makes us excited, it’s the opportunity to get seriously cozy. This lounge-worthy sweatshirt, printed with a smiling jack-o-lantern, natch, makes us want to cuddle up with a hot mug of cider and watch the leaves fall in the back yard. [Sidenote: it does not make us want to rake those fallen leaves. We’ll leave that chore for later.] The cheery orange color is perfect for adding a bright pop to a pair of faded blue jeans, aka the ideal outfit for an apple-picking (or pumpkin picking) expedition with friends.

In some places, it’s still warm enough to hit the beach in October (we’re looking at you, Florida and California). Try a bikini that merges your love for the sand and surf with your urge to get into the harvesttime mood. This one’s summery on top, with a bright green and white striped bralette, and autumnal on the bottom with a (you guessed it) pumpkin and leaf print. The drawstring details here are more than just decorative accents: the ones on the sides of the bikini bottom can be cinched to create a customized fit, while the drawstrings on top let you decide how much décolleté you want to display.

More of a one-piece gal? Suit up for the shore in a maillot that’s similar in style to the bikini, but with more coverage. Though it doesn’t offer drawstrings at the sides, this swimsuit does display more P.P.S.I. = pumpkin per square inch. The signature print covers the bottom half and runs all the way up to the ribcage for a flattering high-waisted look. There’s nothing more perfect for a beach bonfire on a slightly chilly October night than one of these swimsuits teamed with an oversized off-the-shoulder sweater!

Halloween outfits don’t usually conjure up images of elegance, per se. After all, it’s hard to look like a sophisticated lady when you’re wearing plastic vampire teeth or sporting copious amounts of fake blood—not that isn’t cool to do that now and again, but you know what we mean! However, sometimes it’s worth considering an alternate option for the most costume-y of holidays, especially if you’re hitting a Halloween party with someone you want to impress at your side. This year, try skipping the gore and go for a pretty midi dress instead. This flattering A-line option features a demure black bodice, a waist-defining satin sash around the mid-section, and a calf-length skirt printed happy lil’ jack-o-lanterns. A pair of dangling, shoulder-grazing earrings would make a nice finishing touch, but it’s also okay if you simply can’t resist the opportunity to do a full face of zombie makeup.

There are times when only a well-placed pumpkin accessory will do. Let’s set the scene: it’s a dark (but not stormy) Halloween night and your entire costume is planned out perfectly. You won’t want to “break character,” but you’ll still need something cute and on-theme to hold all the essentials you’ll need on-hand like a wallet, makeup, your phone, CANDY. Just kidding on that last one (sort of). And herein lies the genius of the fabric pumpkin shoulder bag: it carries your stuff with a smile—you can’t miss that jack-o-lantern’s grin! Think of this amusing purse as the grown-up version of those plastic jack-o-lanterns you took trick-or-treating as a kid. It’s just as fun, but with a little more tactile appeal than the ones you used to get from a certain famous fast-food chain every October.

Outfits like this are like catnip for grandparents—you’re nearly guaranteed to hear squeals when friends and family see your little gal.

And speaking of a kid-friendly Halloween, this sweatshirt fits the bill. Yes, it’s cozy as can be. The black background makes this piece totally wearable with anything in your closet, though the elongated hem begs to be worn with something fitted like leggings, bike shorts, or a mini skirt. Yes, the fit is relaxed enough for a night in on the couch with caramel popcorn—or a glass of wine post trick-or-treating—and your favorite Netflix show, of course. But there’s something just a little naughty about the look in this jack-o-lantern’s eye that means a spooktacular night is about to unfold.
