Commuting is annoying – the traffic, the late trains, the people who can’t walk. Large totes are great for carrying a laptop, wallet, and makeup, but they get easily overloaded and neck-aches ensue. Fellow working women, it’s time to rediscover our childhood BFF–the backpack. Stop leaning to one side while you hustle – there are cool backpacks out there and we can prove it. Check out these 5 fashionable options, that don’t even remotely resemble the monogrammed L.L. Bean sack you had in 5th grade.

This bright pink Marc by Marc Jacobs Pretty Nylon Backpack $158 is super light weight and has top straps too, in case you have a hard time letting go of the tote trend.

Free People’s Russel backpack ($128) has dark brown leather buckles to give it a rustic and vintage look. And there’s shoulder straps – transforming it from a backpack to a messenger bag.

You can never go wrong with a basic backpack, like this Juicy Couture Pendleton Backpack ($248). The wool-blend material and plaid pattern are so in style for this upcoming fall.

The Deux Lux Mixed Media Corduroy Backpack ($68) takes a funky spin on the standard black backpack with the combination of materials and metals. There’s even a zip pocket on the back.

Lucky Brand’s ‘Swingin Solo’ Backpack ($99) will hold everything and last for a long time. With the extra front compartments, you’ll be able to find lipstick and train tickets without taking anything out.
