4 Cool Backpacks That Won't Make You Look Like A Fourth Grader This Fall

Backpacks are back, and not just for the elementary school set. With designers like Alexander Wang sending backpacks down the runway, there’s never been a better time to invest in a grown-up version. Light on the wallet (and the sore shoulders) these stylish options will make you fall in love with backpacks all over again:

Purse-like leather and antiqued hardware make Aqua’s Beverly backpack ($175) the ideal choice for backpack first-timers.

Urban Outfitters’ Ecote Canvas Backpack ($68) finds the perfect balance between rugged and urban in one of the season’s hottest trends: military. Plus it’s large enough to fit all your personal items and then some, so ditch those extra sacks and purses.

Go modern collegiate with Fossil’s Vintage Reissue Backpack ($218). The rich brown, vintaged leather screams “New England in the fall,” and the back straps can be removed, allowing you to carry the bag as a tote. Two bags in one (!).

Eco-friendly fans will love ModCloth’s Canvassing Backpack ($27.99), which is made from 100% recycled cotton. And a lightweight, simple bag like this won’t ever go out of style.

Can’t get enough bags? Check out our shopping guides for the best big tote bags, handbags under $250, and overnight bags. And if it’s enviromentally-friendly items you crave, find more in our eco-friendly shopping guide.
