Let's Hear it for the Boys

Everyone owns at least one backpack in the college world. We've all had that one eyesore of a bag that clashes with every outfit, and victim to countless pencil or pen marks with sometimes broken zippers or straps. What do us Fashionistoas/os have to look forward to after dressing in our daily best if our bookbags are going to sabotage our street style fashions? Well, this Fashionisto shows us how to get function and fashion out of our bags!

This Fashionisto is definitely rocking his bag the right way. Along with his khaki-colored canvas backpack, similar to this bag, he's sporting a light denim blue jean jacket, worn over an Aztec-inspired hoodie. He also wears dark denim jeans with navy and printed Jordans.

Fashionable bags are really big this season. Since backpacks are a staple in a student’s wardrobe Fashionistas/os venture out to find bags that are more fashionable and fitting to their daily look. Companies such as Herschel Supply Co., Fjallraven and Vans have started making canvas bags in large sizes and a variety of bright colors and prints. These bags are so awesome that they still manage to make a statement when paired with sweatpants and a T-shirt on that lazy day. It's also a good look to coordinate other accessories or shoes to the color of your bag to give it an overall cohesive look.
