August is, quite literally, just around the corner, and as we turn the page on a new month much of the country is already preparing for a new school year. That means one very important thing if you're into handbags—it's backpack season. This is the time of year where new designs are popping up all over. Lucky for us though, backpacks are no longer just for the hallways but rather they've transcended from trend to wardrobe staple.
It's easy to see why backpacks have stuck around. From a practicality perspective they're incredibly functional and convenient for activities in which you'd like to be handsfree, but they provide more space than that of a crossbody bag. In recent years, every major designer has produced some version of this coveted shape.
So whether you're starting a new school year, or you're just looking to refresh your fall bag-drobe we've got you covered. We found 12 backpacks for every budget. With picks so cool you just might want to head back to school!
