It’s back to school season and we’re all searching for the latest accessories for our first day look. The most important accessory for a student to have is a backpack. Recently, backpacks have been taking on the small, simple shape of the stereotypical kindergartner cartoon-theme with a chic twist. These perfect-sized bookbags are now being created in vibrant colors and patterns, as well as various materials, ideal for the trendy student.
I found this Fashionisto sporting a leather Coach backpack. Although leather has become an all-season trend, the rich brown color of this particular bag is on point with upcoming fall fashion. This material is not only trendy, but also practical. Leather has been known to be durable and long lasting. More importantly, it makes your bag stand out in a sea of muted canvases.
If you want something different than leather, there are vibrant, solid colored backpacks from Lacoste that have the same shape and durability. Although the material has a similar look to a canvas bag, the limited pockets, smallness in size and the simplicity of the design gives it more of a contemporary feel.
Surprisingly, a backpack can be the perfect way to dress up your outfit. If you want more of an edgy accessory, a leather knapsack would be perfect for your wardrobe. On the other hand, some fun, colored bags are a good way to create an accent color with your look. Whichever you choose, both bags will spice up your look with their modern twist on an everyday school bag.
