The Backpack Trend: Think Sexy Schoolgirl, Not Revenge Of The Nerds

Listen up, nerds: backpacks are back! Think not of your middle-school JanSport style, but of edgy leather-embellished and utilitarian styles that scream “hot Senior,” rather than “nerdy Freshman.” Those of us who lived through the mini backpack trend of the Clueless era will feel nostalgia for the smaller styles, while “kids these days,” will get on board with it’s class-friendly quality (because schlepping your textbooks in a Longchamp is so 5 minutes ago).

Give your burdened everyday carryall a break with a more chiropractor-friendly backpack now. Just remember to loosen the straps and wear it low or slung over one shoulder — just like the cool kids.

If you really want to feel like a kid again, stuff some Lisa Frank-esque Jimmy Choo gear in your bag, scribble on your Missoni x Converse sneakers or color in your brand-new Keds.
