ACCESSORIES REPORT: Fun and Floral Backpacks

Accessories Report

When I walked past this Fashionista on the way to class, I was at first drawn to her flawless outfit. Clearly, she was experimenting with this season’s menswear inspired looks, and she most definitely succeeded. By adding a spin of neutral tones, her outfit reflects a perfect fall color palette as well.

However when she turned around and walked ahead of me, I fell in love with her backpack. To sum it up, it was floral and fun! Truly, it added excitement to the more basic elements of her outfit. From observation, I believe that too many students around campus are afraid to buy a printed backpack or tote to carry their books in. Perhaps this is because they think that it may clash with their outfits. Obviously, my misconception does not to apply to this fashion dare devil! I actually ran into her again at our school’s Fashion Club meeting that night and she won the Best Dressed Contest. Bravo to her! All in all, this Fashionista is a star!

Aside from her adorable backpack, her chunky, circular scarf does not fail to please as well. To imitate her look, I suggest trying Urban Outfitters for a similar floral backpack. This particular example is not even that expensive, but backpacks are overall a great investment since they are used almost everyday. On the other hand, a bit pricier place to checkout is LeSportsac. They offer a wide variety of different patterns and sizes as well, so nobody will have the same backpack as you! Talk about being super unique. Who knows, maybe you will be setting the next trend in backpacks!
