The other day, as I walked into my local Target, I found myself face to face with a delightful amount of apple-themed paraphernalia. “Incredible!” I thought to myself, “Target has a Rosh Hashanah section!”
I quickly realized, however, that I was wrong. The section was to celebrate a secular holiday that precedes Halloween: apple picking season — which also coincides with back to school season, which is filled with apple imagery. But when life gives you a bushel of apples, you repurpose them for the Jewish New Year, when Jews customarily dip apples in honey for a sweet new year. And as it turns out, there’s a lot of great apple picking kids’ fashion that makes for the perfect Rosh Hashanah outfit — for services, for that family photo shoot where you can never get everybody to actually smile at the same time, or just to wear around the house during the High Holidays.
Here are some of our favorite sartorial apple picks (hehe) for your Rosh Hashanah celebrations:
OK, so I have to start with an exception here — this is an actual Rosh Hashanah outfit! And it’s one that you can match with the whole family. These 100% cotton pajamas, designed by Rabbi Yael Buechler, are perfect for a cozy, in-home celebration, and you can get them for 20% off by using code Kveller20
Gymboree’s apple picking outfits are adorable. Yes, the girls’ fashion is more exciting than the boys’, but we all wish this gender neutral sweater came in all sizes. There are some matching options for adults, though they are, unfortunately, apple free, but still pretty fun for the Rosh Hashanah season.
This apple print is pretty lovely, and I’m particularly partial to this skater dress, which, again, I wish came in adult sizes.
Gap has an adorable baby embroidered apple dress, a pretty cute apple toddler ruffle sweater and this very casual comfy apple toddler outfit. Gap Factory also has these pretty cute apple print pajamas.
Looking to keep a keppe warm this Rosh Hashanah? Celebrating outdoors? These apple beanies are beyond adorable AND they come in adult sizes.
This kids’ dress has pockets, which is really all you need.
A beautiful dress for a kid who loves to twirl!
For those of you looking to splurge, Boden has absolutely stunning apple clothes, including this apple skirt, embroidered apple corduroy pants and overalls, and a fair isle apple cardigan, which comes in both adult and children’s sizes.
