It’s finally time for me to start slowly fading my Instagram aesthetic from saturated summer hues to warm autumnal tones—and of course, it’s also time to start brainstorming some clever fall Instagram captionsWhat can I say? I’m not the kind of person who redecorates her home for every season, but I am definitely the kind that revamps her entire social media to fit each season’s vibes. Judge me not!

Luckily, autumn is by far my favorite seasonal aesthetic and given that there are so many fun fall activities to partake in, there are tons of opportunities for cute fall-themed Instagram captions. Don’t think I’d ever miss the chance to make a leaf or pumpkin-related pun, not to mention all the spooky captions I have ready for Halloween throwbacks (No, I’m not done posting my costume!). That said, I’m definitely one for a good artsy fall quote every now and then, to accompany my PSL flat lay or an autumnal OOTD. “Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall,” as Fitzgerald once said and so does my Instagram feed.

A word of warning—not every photo you post needs a seasonal caption, so feel free to take the below and sprinkle them in as needed. Or, go full fall and commit to the aesthetic. Honestly, I’m not judging you either way! I’ll even meet you at the pumpkin patch for a cute photo sesh. Bring your chunkiest sweater and tallest boots.

Jokes aside, read on for 40 fall-themed Instagram captions you can totally use for your own photos, including an entire section of lyrics from Ms. Taylor Swift in honor of Red (Taylor’s Version) that feel perfectly fall-friendly. Will you go short and punny or thoughtful and moody? The choice is yours, but one thing is for sure—you’re going to rack in a ton of likes on these posts, be-leaf me!

Bring me a PSL and tell me I’m pretty.

Sweater weather, but make it a cashmere cropped cardigan.

These boots are made for…not a lot of walking, but don’t they look great?

Maybe she’s born with it. Maybe it’s maple leaves.

Really “fall”ing in love with my autumn wardrobe.

Can you tell I really missed my leather jacket?

Felt cute, might de-leaf later.

I see your Squad Goals and I raise you Squash Goals.

Apple picking with the apples of my eye.

Pumpkin Patch > Happy Hour

An apple cider a day gets the fall vibes to stay.

If you like pumpkin spice lattes & getting caught in the rain…

I was like hay what’s up hello.

Cutest pumpkin at the patch.

All these ghosts on Halloween and I still don’t have a boo.

I’m the sweetest Witch you’ll ever meet.

Get in losers, we’re going haunting.

They call me the ghostess with the mostest.

Hot Ghoul Halloween; I’m here for it.

Hot Ghoul Halloween

I’m a haunt mess.
