The summer is winding down and fall is almost upon us. With that comes flannels, amazing leather booties, and the inevitable stack of essays you’ll have to write this semester. Sure, that latter isn’t as great as the first two, but at least heading back to school gives you the excuse to go shopping (as if you needed one in the first place). And what do you need more than that killer recruitment dress? A fashion-forward backpack that will carry all those textbooks you can’t wait to read.
These five book bags aren’t just practical, they’re also chic AF. Check out our five favorite brands below before you go back to school shopping this year, and snag one for yourself. You can thank us later.
