Remember these? I used to wear them in middle school. If you picked me up ten years ago and dropped me into 2012, I would be considered quite fashionable among other Fashionistas my age. Seeing the classic backpack invokes a bit of nostalgia while at the same time a bit of coveting, and that's exactly how I felt when I was lucky enough to meet this Fashionista.

Wearing an oversized military green jacket, her outfit was complemented by her brown backpack. The pairing made for a simple yet fashionable ensemble, which made her outfit easy to love and recreate.

Praised for its versatility, not only in style but also in functionality and affordability, you don't have to be a student or wealthy to rock the backpack. This backpack from Forever 21 sports a southwest print that is trending for fall and is affordable for the Fashionista on a budget. If you're looking for something similar in style to this Fashionista's backpack this stylish choice will make an excellent alternative.

The backpack makes a great carryall and it's great for the CollegeFashionista/o because it allows them to be fashionable and smart without having to compromise.

Spotted: A new take on the backpack by Chanel seen on the runway at Paris Fashion Week for their fall/winter 2012 collection.
