Accessories Report

I have always been a big fan of backpacks. My trusty Mulan-themed one got me through elementary school while my black Jansport holds everything for me now. Backpacks are the most effective way to carry around all the essentials. As opposed to shoulder bags, which always hurt my back after a few hours, backpacks are both comfortable and practical.

I was walking across campus when my eyes immediately zoomed onto this Fashionista’s backpack. It was love at first sight. The backpack is huge in a good way. It holds all the books and papers that the Fashionista needs for class. The two outside pockets are perfect to store some extra pens as well as the mason jar of tea that all hipsters require. This backpack is perfect in every way. In addition to its amazing storage capabilities, it also has a beautiful construction. I am a huge fan of leather so I have to give props to this Fashionista for picking out such a great material. Her backpack will not be wearing out any time soon.

The color is gorgeous and is just the right shade to match with practically every outfit. I also love the backpack’s details. The brass buckles and worn edges give it a vintage feel. The buckle closure is secure and looks much better than a zipper ever would. The clip-on straps are great because they add to the backpack’s handmade, piece-by-piece look.

Fashionable backpacks are the perfect accessory. They get you from class to class and help you look stylish along the way. By adding this backpack to the rest of her outfit, this Fashionista has cool nailed. The distressed leather goes great with her classic denim jacket and work boots. She looks ready to brave the elements in style.

Spotted: In their Elizabeth and James pre-fall 2014 collection, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen use leather backpacks to add a chic element to their casual cool designs.
