ALL IN THE DETAILS: The Mini Backpack Makes a Comeback

ALL IN THE DETAILS: The Mini Backpack Makes a Comeback

What’s better than starting the new year with a fresh new look? If you are looking forward to kicking off 2017 with a statement, I say it’s time to ditch your dirty old handbag and carry on with your days hands-free. What do I mean by this? I mean, mini backpacks are in and it’s time to update (or upgrade?) your attire.

Whether you are going out to a nice dinner or keeping it casual, grabbing a small backpack as you walk out the door will make your outfit perfectly fashionable without looking like you tried ‘too hard.’ Pictured above, this Fashionista styled a Jimi Hendrix graphic T-shirt, black skinny jeans, ankle booties, along with a vintage mink coat, which can never go wrong. Simple, sleek, and all tied together with a small studded backpack.

When carrying a handbag, we are constantly switching from shoulder to shoulder to make ourselves feel better about holding the extra pounds. Do we really need to be trekking around with a bag full of random items? It’s time for a deep clean and picking out what you truly need for the new year rather than packing it. Let’s keep it simple. Better yet, let’s take the stress off our backs. What a small backpack will do is make your days easier with commutes to class while making coffee runs a whole lot more relaxed. They are by far the most convenient ways to get from place to place. So, let’s leave mom purses behind and move on with a fashionable and healthier new year.
