happy school year-baggers can be choosy

how you choose to carry your books and valuables is a big deal. your bookbag or knapsack is an accessory that says a whole lot about you, mainly since you carry it around EVERY day. during my time, jansport and eastpak were essential for the popular. although i had other kinds like floral espirit ect, even i, the non-conformist, owned a burgundy eastpak. here are a few tips to make your school life a little easier:

  • choose a color that will compliment your outfits 85% of the school year (neutrals, navy blue, burgundy, grey are usually safe bets)

  • keep proportion in mind when you are choosing. the bag needs to fit your body type but still fit your books. if you're petite, choose a bag that is also petite. if you're an amazon lady, go for something that is worthy of your statuesque size.

  • if you tend to dress up a lot (dresses, skirts and blouses) perhaps a one shoulder formal bag is best. if you're a jeans and tee kind of girl, you can go with the backpack or more casual one shoulder.

  • if you have dough to spare, buy bags that fit many of the criteria. then, pick and choose, depending on your outfit and mood.
