Let’s admit, a backpack can really add that extra touch of swag to your outfit. From backpack veterans like Kanye West to teenie bop sensations like Justin Bieber, we’re seeing Hollywood favorites welcoming this spring trend. But, even if you aren't Kanye West or Justin Bieber, you can still bring this trend into your spring wardrobe. I recently received a really great Jesslyn Blake uni-sex bag that looks almost identical to some of the spring backpacks I’ve been seeing on the runway. I love that this backpack is casual so you can wear it in the day to simply carry some of your books around for school. Another perk? The fabric of this bag allows you to pop it in the washer if it gets a little over-used.
Tip One: When you are shopping for your spring backpack, pay close attention to the details on the bag. The biggest complaint people will have are issues with the zipper. Make sure that if you are struggling with the zipper, you either get another bag or fix the stitching underneath to make it smoother. Also check the fabric! If you are planning to use your bag often you need to make sure the fabric is washer-friendly and easy to clean.
Tip Two: When you are shopping for a backpack style, consider your personal wardrobe as a guide. Is your style casual, loud, or in between? If your style is more relaxed, go for a casual J-Crew style or Ralph Lauren backpack. If you are someone who enjoys making a statement try leather or a fun leopard backpack.
