Mini Trend: Backpacks Replace Handbags
When I first met Maya in college, I knew we would be friends right away. I loved her style. She was wearing her usual all black and an olive Prada backpack. I had the same backpack, but mine was black, my boyfriend at the time and now husband gave it to me as a high school graduation present.
Backpacks have been very much out of vogue since then, but are now back and more stylish than ever before. These days’ cosmopolitan women are on the go, and lets be honest, carrying everything they need in their busy days with them. Fashionable women have been replacing their handbags with luxe backpacks. Backpacks were designed out of utility, but now designers are producing them to be seen as a fashion forward handbag. Check out some of my favorite street-style looks and some of my chosen fashion backpacks.
