How To Rock The Backpack:
So, what are you waiting for? Time to get on the trend! Some fabulous backpacks are designed with a bunch of funky zippers and buckles for a chunkier, grunge look. If your style is more classic, opt out of embellished and patterned versions and select a simple and chic style. You can go bold with color or stick to a neutral, subtle style — the options are endless! And no matter which style you choose, backpacks are the perfect accessory for any day date — whether it’s walking around the park, hitting up a music festival, or shopping on the street. The backpack will look hip and not be a hinder to your day — and many styles also convert into regular bags, so you can take the look from day to night! We recommend selecting a dark leather bag if you want to use it for a night out, as it will add an edgy vibe to your outfit. Whether you want to invest in a new bag or are just looking for an affordable yet trendy option, we definitely have you covered.
