A Backpack Just Might Be Your Chicest Fall Accessory — Yes, Seriously

As summer comes to an end (can you believe it!?), we all so vividly remember the excitement that fall used to bring as children. It was never easy to swap out popsicles for pencils, but going back to school always meant one thing: school supply shopping. (In fact, this may be the root of our shopping obsession.) There was always an eagerness that came from hitting the mall with our parents for that key school purchase—the perfect backpack. This concept has obviously evolved over the years along with our personal style (from hot pink sparkles, to understated neutrals, we can all admit to having every backpack  imaginable in our school yard days).

Just because we’re no longer students, doesn’t mean we have to be deprived of the joys of back-to-school shopping and, more importantly, a solic backpack.  Although we’ve traded colored pencils for a laptop, and  PB&J sandwiches for acai bowls, we’re still major supporters of the carryall…but in a much more adult fashion. Lucky for us, these super-efficient two-strap totes are everywhere this season, courtesy of some of our favorite designers. Think: durable nylon that can stand the wear and tear of your morning commute and designer leather that adds a chic pop to a simple ensemble. Even though our school days have come to an end, we can relive them in the most sophisticated way with elevated versions of our dependable childhood favorites. Read on for some of our favorite fall backpacks that will take you from work to play and far beyond this season.
