It doesn’t matter if you’re going back to school or back to work from your amazing summer vacation, backpack season is definitely amongst us. Over the past few years backpacks have been becoming more and more stylishly acceptable to schlep around. If you live in a populated metropolitan area where traveling by foot or by subways are fundamental means of transportation then you know first hand that backpacks are crucial. I, personally, carry my life in bags. I used to be one of those women who would carry just about everything in the biggest purse she could find. Heels, makeup bag, water, books, tightly folded up gym clothes and what ever else I deemed necessary would be victims to my overly stuffed purse. My bag literally looked as if it were about to explode. I finally knew that it was about time that I invested in a backpack . Who wants to be seen walking around with an overly filled purse. I gave up that lifestyle a long time ago.
There are backpacks for every lifestyle imaginable and at just about every price point. Even though backpacks can get costly it’s important to get one that’s quality. It would be a shame that one should fall apart with you only getting a few wears out of it. I am far to familiar with schlepping around a handful of crap and all of a sudden the backpack’s straps will break apart during the busiest part of your day. It’s not fun, trust me. Since then, I have purchased a few a backpacks and duffle bags from Herschel Supply. They are great if you’re on a minimum budget, but still want to be stylish. They have all types of patterns, styles and sizes for you to choose from. They have even collaborated with the prestigious Liberty of London. If you have a few extra dollars to spare then you should definitely check out Want Les Essentiels De La Vie. Their products are modern, durable, thoroughly crafted and resourcefully designed. Although their products are marketed for men, women can definitely rock their accessories as well. Starting this season make sure you invest in a few backpacks that will carry you throughout the year. They will come in handy and your investment will be well worth it.
