Shopping Guide: Backpacks for Summer

By Butterboom Writers  /  July 19, 2013

Throw a backpack on. This trend is back in a big way.

Backpacks have made a fashionable comeback. Other than being spotted on the spring/summer 2013 runways of Versus, Hermes and DKNY, the backpack also appeared on countless street style snaps. It’s definitely a staple accessory to own right now and we’re saying yay to this 90s sartorial revival!

Though the mere mention of backpacks had us reminiscing our school-going days, the trend is far from that old school style. It’s very practical yet chic and not-at-all geeky so long as you pull-off the effortless, model off-duty look (i.e. wear it slouchy on your back but not too low or carry on one shoulder with a carefree attitude).

Style wise, we love how versatile the backpack can be: funky, edgy, cute or girly. It’s not just for a fun, casual day out, if that’s what you’re thinking. We’re currently obsessed with high-end offerings. Think minimalist, luxe leather options to spruce up plain ensembles and that can actually work for work (well, who knew?).
