backpack to school

uk fashion blogger




So I’m not heading back to school anytime soon. Seriously done with that. I left school almost 9 years ago now and it's crazy to think back that far. None the less the style staple for those that way inclined is definitely a backpack. It’s become a Cool Girl staple over the last few years and have gone from being pretty ugly to perfectly on trend.

As I have recently been converted to the hands free side and I’m not looking back. My Urban Outfitters one is real leather, super soft and so hard wearing. I’ve taken it across the country, travelling, to festivals and stuffed it with goodness knows what. Having the freedom to check everything in a bag and get on with life is the one.

Heres a shoppable selection of my favourite backpacks on the market right now. Forget getting a sporty style one (unless you dig that, then cool cool!) and pick something a little more refined and on trend.

  11. Great post. I'm enjoying the backpack revival immensely....When I bought a backpack from Topshop a few years ago my friends laughed at me but now they're all the rage!! x

  14. For some reason I always feel weird with a backpack as I don't know what to do with my hands!! If I was still at school though I think I would definitely want a grafea x

  19. I love the check one from New Look! I bought a leather one from Zara last year and, although it doesn't exactly make me feel massively glamorous (and I'm not cool enough to carry off the laid-back casual vibe!) it definitely makes life a lot easier when I'm going to uni!

  22. I used to have a very large, blue rucksack for school and hated it! I used to swap it over for another bag when I got into school! But now, my love for rucksacks has returned! Some of these are lovely!

  23. Looks great - but a bloody nightmare getting things in & out of them though. My poor mate last night was so tired with me saying "can you just go in my bag and grab..." Good if you need your hands free though...and I'll still continue to buy them! :)

  32. I really like these backpacks! But unfortunately I have lots of classes each day so that means lots of books... I need to have a bigger bag than this so I have a little less classy one, but it's cute and it's just for school so I'm okay with it. If I would be able to carry a smaller backpack I would probably go for a leather on, it looks so stylish!

  37. I've always loved to wear backpacks over shoulder or cross body bags cuz of back pains, and I'm so glad they're in style again! It has bring many options for those who love a good ol' backpack!

  38. I'm way more into backpacks than handbags, it adds a cutesy schoolgirl vibe without being toooo cute.

  39. I would happily use backpacks but there are so many weirdos who take any opportunity they can get to steal out of someone's bag that I'd forever be paranoid when using one. I've had someone steal stuff (they took hand sanitizer and wetwipes yet left my money...) out of a crossbody bag I was using so a backpack is a no go for me. It's a shame as there are so many cute ones to choose from.
