Whether you’re heading back to school or working 9-to-5, adjusting your wardrobe for fall can be both exciting and daunting. Not only do you want to stock up on the latest trends, but you also want to incorporate some practical staples that are as functional as they are fashionable.

Finding pieces that transition from school or work to yoga or spin can make your life that much easier. It doesn’t matter if you’re studying for exams or working in an office, both comfort and style should be accounted for when filling out your closet this fall.

If you lack inspiration, we have a ton of inspiration to get you from your daily grind to the gym without all the locker room luggage.

A good bag makes everything easier
Gym bags and backpacks have truly transformed in the last few years. You can get something super stylish and office appropriate, a simple yoga sling or a traditional gym bag. Whatever your preference, make sure it comes fully loaded with enough pockets and compartments to store all of your pre and post-gym essentials.

 

Comfortable sneakers are always in style
Long gone are the days when sneakers were only acceptable at the gym. Now a nice pair of kicks can be paired with almost any outfit. From business casual to Sunday brunch, athleisure wear has gone completely mainstream.

Don’t be afraid to rock a cute pair of white running shoes with your next outfit and kick your style up a notch without sacrificing comfort.

 

Be cool, but stay warm
A windbreaker or shell can help keep you warm during whatever weather conditions are thrown your way. Whether it’s rain, wind or snow, protecting yourself from the elements will make your walk to class or run in the park that much more enjoyable.

Pro tip: Invest in a jacket with a hood to protect your headphones from rainfall.

 

Never underestimate the power of a good sports bra
Finding a comfortable yet cute sports bra is getting easier. There are so many options that can help you transition from acceptable office wear to yoga class without compromising support and style. Whether you’re all about the bralette or you prefer something super supportive, brands are getting better at designing great transitional pieces for every body type. 

Stay comfy in sweatpants
Sweatpants have evolved into a huge fashion movement, encompassing both street style and personal comfort with the iconic athletic wear brands of the past. Now you can mix and match traditional sweatpants and sweatshirts with business casual looks or rock all heather grey, whatever you decide, you’ll be super comfy.
