STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Upgrade The Backpack

As a college student, I know a good 98 percent of the population carries a backpack to class. I know I carry a backpack to class. That’s just what students use to carry all their textbooks and notebooks in. It is practical. I never even considered trying to find a different type of bag to carry my supplies in, and hey there are some cute backpacks out there so I never really minded sticking with the backpack trend.

This is why I was so pleasantly surprised to find this Fashionista on campus carrying a bag full of her school supplies. Her purse was unique and fun and very trendy. It was refreshing to see a girl swapping out the trusty Jansport for a large bag that could do the job just as well.

Want to try this trend? It isn’t easy to find a bag durable and large enough to lug across campus everyday, especially one that will match your outfit everyday! Try to stay with darker or neutral tones, and look for bags with lots of extra pockets on the inside so you can stash pens and paper clips and other things you usually keep in your backpack. Calvin Klein offers a practical option and here is another cute bag that will fit your textbooks and keep you looking as trendy as this Fashionista.
