I used to think backpacks were strictly school accessories, Jansport branded bags meant to be stuffed with binders and notebooks and casually slung over one shoulder. But today, backpacks are cooler than ever, and there's SO many variations of your standard school sack: studded, printed, leather, monogrammed. Backpacks are a great alternative to wearing out your shoulder with a purse until you're walking lopsided... I love these simple backpacks by Swedish brand Fjallraven
Herschel Supply Co. is another favorite, I use one for school and it's sturdy as well as stylish.
