Current Obsession : Backpacks

Say goodbye for a while to those classic hobos, totes and sling bags for the day, and welcome a new companion - the versatile backpack. The stylish bag avatar is casual in its own right (even when fabricated in leather) but yet classy and sophisticated. Where else can you find such contrasting adjectives to define the same thing ?

It can add zing to any outfit and we share with you many looks from all over the world, to keep your inspiration up to date.

Add style to a casual look

Beyond doubt this bag is supremely blogger friendly, with it minding it's own business on your shoulder and carrying all your essentials.

Try the bag with a denim on denim look or even a colored pair of pants. A simple attire is evidently transformed with just one practical addition.

Pair it up with an over-sized silhouette

Wearing an over sized shirt or tee with leggings ? Be it a chic look like the tangerine or a goth look, there is hardly any argument over a backpack complimenting both the looks like nothing else. 

Add to dresses

Be it a skater dress paired up with a jacket or a shift dress, the bag gels well and breaks OTT femininity in any look, by adding a casual laid-back element.

Other accessories with the backpack

No, it is not a rule that the backpack has to be the focal accessory in your look. Other elements matter as much. You could use a scarf, or even a fedora and bold shoes too. There is no stopping with this trend.

Celebrity sightings

Ashley Olson, has been spotted a couple of times recently with her favorite off-the moment bag. She keeps it casual but incredibly chic at the same time.

Pixie Geldof, the model from London sported a Louis Vuitton backpack on the red carpet while attending the Glamour awards. She worked her punk streak fairly well with this one.

This Red Head scores fashion points always. What with a sharp pairing up of a floral bustier dress with a Chanel Mahogony backpack in leather.

The trend is catching up worldwide and it should be on your shopping list this season.


  1. I agree that a backpack is a blogger's best friend...I just haven't found a perfect one yet...but I did like some of these options, so I know there's hope still for me ;)

    1. We understand how we all just keep moving from trying to find one perfect to the other perfect - it is a bag today... could be a white shirt tomorrow, and the perfect shade of red lip color the day after.... !!! That is where the fun lies... right Princess Martha :) :)

  2. Love this! I have also been recently obsessing over backpacks, especially leather ones. I've been searching for the perfect one for school but I can't seem to come across one :( This post really helped me widen my options! Thanks for the great post!
