The past year made us re-think fashion and re-consider our purchase choices, right? While it’s true we’re all hoping for and believing in the best to come this year, it might be safer to invest in functional backpacks rather than any other type of bags this season. And well, quarantine or not, pandemic or not, girls always want to dress up, put on a little makeup (that’s right, even beneath a safety mask), and complete the look with trendy accessories.
So, check the list below of the 10 most appealing, non-trivial backpacks that will warm up your soul in these uncertain times.
1. The Row: Massimo Textured-leather Backpack ($3,190)
Let’s start with this adorable bucket backpack in grained calf leather. Its elongated shape, minimalistic design, and suede interior add to the feel of exclusivity. It is one of those items whose luxury price is totally justified by the number of times you’ll carry it – a truly eternal piece for your wardrobe. And I simply cannot think of an outfit that this Massimo wouldn’t complement.
2. Off-White: Diag-Print Industrial-strap Backpack ($1,075)
This small backpack won’t fit your laptop, of course, but it will make a nice home for your vanity case, phone, and wallet. Take this piece out on a date and enjoy how stylish it makes you look. The black-and-white striped flap echoes this year’s hottest zebra pattern, giving a boost to the plainest of outfits.
3. Moncler: Logo Patch Detail Backpack ($945)
A truly unique piece crafted in silver finish calf leather and equipped with only one strap – a crossbody backpack, if you like. Its metallic shine and puffer pockets on the front will elevate your everyday style effortlessly.
4. Moschino: Mini Logo Print Backpack ($965)
Fresh, young, and daring – as is everything designed by Moschino – this backpack is a perfect match for your spring and summer outfits. It adds playfulness and humor to your everyday apparel and combines nicely with heels and sneakers alike.
5. Phillip Plein: Crystal Quilted Backpack ($1,890)
This sheepskin backpack with a crystal quilt texture and a silver logo plaque will blend smoothly into the wardrobe of every city gal who treasures quality with a pinch of luxury. Phillip Plein is indeed a god of urban style and fresh looks.
6. Prada: Mini Logo Plaque Backpack ($1,320)
For those of you inspired by the still widely popular Prada nylon shoulder bag, this backpack is its bigger brother. Equipped with flirty chain straps and classic flap pockets, it will make quite a difference to your sporty casual look.
7. Gucci: Neo Vintage GG Supreme Backpack ($1,980)
A very versatile piece, this bucket-shape drawstring Gucci can be either worn on the back or carried by the handle, which is bright yellow on top. The brass hardware and leather elements highlight the iconic House’s pattern. With this piece, you won’t have to spend time selecting other accessories – it will blend with them all.
8. Just Cavalli: Monogram-print Backpack ($710)
Now, this black and white Cavalli is my absolute favorite in the world of backpacks. Honestly! An interesting shape, a unique design flap with exquisite silver hardware, an adjustable handle for various wear options – what not to like? Simple and so chic, it will make a statement in every look and on every occasion. (Adding it to my birthday wishlist as I’m typing this.)
9. MCM: Stark Xmini Backpack ($728)
Another statement piece for the gal who has had enough of black this gloomy year. This MCM mini is so cute you’ll want to try it on, hug it, and never-ever let it go.
10. Tory Burch: Quilted Backpack ($501)
You probably know that quilted items are not going anywhere any time soon. Decorated with two flirty tassels, this backpack is small but bold. Take it for a walk and see how many envious glances you get from other gals.
