Grown-Up Backpacks Aren't Going Anywhere, So You Might As Well Get One

Remember when we were kids and backpacks were a huge deal? You had to have the coolest one so you could carry around your trapper keeper and pencil cases. Those were the good ol’ days…

Lucky for us all, those days are back! Backpacks are all grown up and one of the latest must-have accessories. We can sense your excitement–we’re pumped, too!–but before you indulge, a quick lesson. The only acceptable way for a grown woman to actually pull of a backpack is to choose one the same way you’d choose a purse. In other words, don’t dust off that decades-old backpack from your childhood. Yes, it may be cost-effective but it’s probably not cute. Instead, go with one of this season’s statement backpacks, which feature gorgeous leather accents, color-blocking, studs, and prints.

Don’t feel comfortable choosing one on your own? We went ahead and found some awesome options for you. Shop them in the slideshow.
