ACCESSORIES REPORT: Grade School Favorite

Accessories Report

Here is a quick trivia question for you: What is the one accessory that you have been carrying around since elementary school? Answer: Your backpack! This grade school favorite has always made carrying your supplies easy, but as of late it has gotten a stylish update. The best part about the growing popularity of backpacks on and off campus is the wide variety of styles that can suit any Fashionista’s taste.

This lime green backpack is the perfect springtime accessory. Even though it is a stand out piece, it is surprisingly a highly complementary color. My favorite picks for brightly hued backpacks include this similar lime green one and also a hot pink option.

If you aren’t one for bright colors, but still want to invest in a more fashion forward backpack there are several good options out there–one of my favorites is the leather backpack. This style was made famous by off duty models and instantly gives your outfit a cool factor. Leather backpacks are also the easiest to wear off campus as well. During warmer months pick a color that is light, like this white one. Another good option for backpacks are patterned versions. I really like this black and white one because it is not overly busy but will give your outfit plenty of interest. Whatever your personal preference may be, make sure your backpack gives off what is compatible with your day-to-day style, so it will always be your best accessory walking across campus.
