Splurge or Steal – The Return of the Backpack

Backpacks are back. Don’t worry, we’re not talking about the “Saved By the Bell” nylon Jansport backpack from the 90‘s; rather, from runway to the street, we’re seeing stylish, high end iterations of these utilitarian bags that make for a smart, on-the-go look. The backpacks fit right into the current athleisure trend – where women are now demanding comfort and effortless style that can take them from workout to work at a moments notice.

We love these two backpacks in color neutral Sand for a simple, go with everything Summer accessory. Sling over your shoulder with jeans and a tee-shirt for a laid-back vibe, or two strap it with a work outfit for a more polished feel.  We love the rich suede, contrast straps and brass hardware of this Rag & Bone Pilot backpack. But for a more wallet-friendly version, we adore this Nordstrom Faux Leather backpack with chrome zipper and flap detailing.
