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.
