As a child, choosing a backpack was the best part about back-to-school – and now that you’re off to college, the excitement doesn’t have to stop! Show off your personality with the perfect bag (even if you’re carrying tablets instead of textbooks). To give you some inspiration as you prepare to start the semester, here’s a quick look at our favorite school bag trends of the season:
As seen trending throughout spring and summer, crochet continues to dominate this fall. Incorporate the fabric into your back-to-school wardrobe with this adorable book bag from Unionbay ($30). The crochet details add texture and dimension, while the floral pattern brings your free-spirit to life.
If you choose to rock this dainty detail on your back, check out how to accessorize crochet to complete your boho-inspired look.
If classic schoolgirl is more your style, opt for this plaid backpack by Massini ($45). Plaid has long been our favorite print for fall, which makes it a no-brainer when it’s time for class this semester!
For a trendy backpack you can wear with anything, opt for a simple style in a neutral shade. Try a soft faux leather bag with exposed zippers for extra drama. This Massini backpack ($45) has multiple pockets and looks just like a hand bag, so you’ll appear much more casual when you’re walking around campus.
If you decide you want to add a little flair, feature enamel pins on the bag’s pockets. There’s no wrong way to make your backpack your own!
If you want something versatile that’s not quite as plain, choose a backpack with faux leather fringe. This boho-grunge Massini bag is just $45, and it’ll bring an edgy twist to any fall ensemble.
