It doesn’t matter how old you are; as soon as summer is over and fall’s on its way, it’s hard not to feel nostalgic for back-to-school season. Stocking up on new bags, collecting supplies, and buying new clothes—specifically a first-day-of-school outfit—are all quintessential memories of starting class. Luckily, even if you’re not sitting in homeroom anymore, you can still take part and transition or update everything you have, just because you can. Where to start? Treating yourself to a few key essentials from Sperry, including a pair of comfortable and stylish shoes, which are not only practical but also extremely elevated, so you won’t be sacrificing comfort for style here.

Scroll down for four “back to fall” essentials from Sperry. 

Don’t let colder weather get in the way of wearing stylish shoes. Even though you have to be more covered up and it’s harder to get around town in crummy weather, there are options that are both comfortable and fun. Sperry has plenty of elevated picks—preppy vibes included—so you won’t feel like you’re sacrificing your outfit for comfort.

You don’t need to be a student to have a journal. In fact, having one with you at all times will not only keep you organised, but also help you remember all your ideas.

Fall and winter are all about layering, so having an assortment of shirts on hand is pretty much mandatory. You can never go wrong with a classic print, like stripes, or something neutral.

Everyone needs to own some sort of backpack. Whether you use it for travelling or toting your things around town, it’s necessary in the fall. You can throw pretty much everything in it without worrying that your valuables will be rained or snowed on.
