ALL IN THE DETAILS: Backpackspiration

From Cher Horowitz circa 1995 to the Burberry spring/summer 2016 catwalk, backpacks have been through it all. Recently, the staple accessory has been making a comeback in the world of fashion, much to the pleasure of all the students on campus who can now ditch their dowdy bookbag for a fashion-savvy carry-all.

This Fashionista is proving that backpacks are both practical and trendy. Heading back-to-school is stressful enough. Between balancing a full schedule of classes, extracurriculars and socializing, finding the perfect look for any occasion at a moment’s notice can only add to your daily pressures. For a college student, backpacks are an effective way to stay organized while you are on the move, but it also makes for the perfect statement piece in an outfit because it offers so much variety. We all have those days when going to class is a major struggle (it’s called Monday) and you can’t be bothered by anything but leggings and a T-shirt. Luckily, by adding a festive printed or mini-backpack, you can transform your look from bleak to chic! On the other hand, a sleek color block or monochrome backpack can keep your look classic or tone down your elaborate ensemble. From your classroom to your corner cafe, backpacks are the best for both worlds!

This Fashionista wore a classic ensemble and kept it casual by adding a backpack. She polished off her look by coordinating her platform sandals with her backpack, timeless sunglasses and kitten earrings. Her fall-ready fashion was emphasized as well through her use of neutral colors. She exemplified a flawless transition into back-to-school style for fall and gave me major #backpackspiration.

How To: Busy day? If you are constantly moving from one thing to the next, load up all of your essentials in a stylish backpack! You will immediately feel organized, fashionable and prepared to take charge of the day.
