STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK : Backpack, Backpack

Finally the ’90s trend we have all been waiting to come back is here, backpacks! The most practical and comfortable storage accessory is making quite a comeback this season. Say goodbye to the unbearably poor weight distribution of the crossbody bag and accept the spacious, versatile beauty of the backpack as your new go-to.

This Fashionista styles her backpack perfectly for her grungy style. She pairs a feminine button-down jean skirt with a classic T-shirt and boyish boots. On top of her T-shirt, she sports a black denim jacket layered underneath a furry jacket to keep warm. And to tie it all together, of course, a white faux leather backpack. This look highlights the youthful charm of the backpack with funky ankle boots and denim skirt, while toning it down with a more masculine coat. A perfect going to class outfit! If it’s a little chilly, you can always just throw on a pair of tights.

The best part about the backpack is its versatility. With many different varieties, anyone can find one to fit their individual style. For a more preppy style, a chestnut leather vintage bag might be more up your ally. For a more bohemian look, try a funkier textile cloth backpack.

Reliable and much easier on your shoulders, a backpack is the perfect accessory that will actually hold all of the unnecessary stuff you want to bring in your purse but never fits. In the famous words of Bianca Stratford in 10 Things I Hate About You: “There’s a difference between like and love. Because I like my Skechers, but I love my Prada backpack.”
