We’ve had one ever since kindergarten and it has quickly become a regular addition to our school day; the humble school bag. But since moving on from boring, bulky mandatory school backpacks, being a university student means we can wear a bag that’s just as reflective of our personalities as our choice in clothes.
Since relied on for carring books, stationery and sometimes a laptop, a bag is an essential accessory for any student. After all, behind every good (or at least stylish) student is a good school bag!
Personally, I’m a big fan of bright, colourful backpacks to carry my stuff to class (as you can see in my STYLE GURU BIO) so I really appreciate a bold bag. And I would’ve been blind to miss this Fashionista’s bag!
As you can see, her bag is an optical illusion; it looks like a flat, cartoon drawing, when in fact it is a three-dimensional, fully functioning bag. And being the little fashion nerd that I am, I actually knew exactly what shop this bag had come from, much to the surprise of this Fashionista when I rushed up to her and asked excitedly if it was a JumpFromPaper bag (which it was).
This takes “paper bag” to a whole new level. Forget your brown lunch bag; this Fashionista’s 3D-but-looks-2D bag is amazing to tote your things around while looking totes chic (pun intended). And while it looks small, this Fashionista opened it up to reveal a bunch of books and her essentials, so there’s no issue when it comes to space.
I love that the rest of this Fashionista’s outfit is just as quirky as her bag–those Black Milk unicorn leggings (again, I knew them from sight because I spend too much time trolling online stores) are amazing paired with the hot pink socks that peek out of her black combat boots. With a bag like hers, you can style your entire outfit around it like she did, or make it the statement piece of your look.
Want a carryall that will bag all the attention? Neon see-through bags are having a big moment right now, as are mailbag satchels in bright pastel shades and tribal-inspired backpacks. Pick one that suits you and you’ll be set for your lecture in style!
