STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Bookbags In Style This Spring

Style Advice of the Week

Pack yourself for class in style this semester with a fashion forward backpack to assist you in carrying all those back to school essentials. When planning your return to campus for the spring semester there are some factors you cant ignore. For instance the amount of textbooks you will purchase and hardly open or the notebooks you’ll spend time doodling in with all the free pens you’ve collected from the club fair. Then there is of course your laptop if you choose to be green and the charger to get you through the day. With all that to carry one will certainly need a bag that’s serves its purpose as a backpack, but stylish enough you can use it to accessorize your outfits as well.

When I saw this Fashionista walking across campus she had just come from picking up her textbooks from the bookstore. Lets take a moment to admire her Vera Bradley print, English Rose backpack and how this simple but classic floral print goes with her look. She is wearing skinny jeans and an army green blouse with a slight lace accent that goes perfect with the neutral colors in her backpack. To accessorize this outfit I would add a gold bangle or two like these by kate spade. On her feet she is wearing a versatile black boot from DSW. Another shoe option to wear with this attire could be tan or taupe combat boots that can be found at Charlotte Russe to give her an edgier look.

Getting back into the routine of things like classes and library trips are just another reason to head out in style. Despite the fact this may mean a backpack full of books and a lattè in your hand. No matter where you’re headed, when shopping for backpacks remember to look for patterns and prints you can mix and match with your style to wear throughout the school year.
