These days, campus and street fashion are all the rage. The latest trend seen around are leather backpacks, and as you can see now, they’ve evolved from an everyday school necessity to a variety of styles to complete any look. But one thing so great about leather backpacks are their versatility in any situation and event. You can wear one while traveling, to school, an event, and even fashion week! Think of any color and any style- you can probably get one. Besides getting yourself one, leather backpacks also make thoughtful and creative gifts. Here’s a quick guide to some different styles.
1.Topshop Perforated Faux Leather BackpackI love this pastel minty color, and the perforated panels adds a really cool 3-D effect. The knapsack design allows a lot of room to store things, as it looks like it’s super expandable and has a draw string. This is also the perfect color for spring, and would look really good with other pastels and light colors.
2. Opening Ceremony Izzy BackpackThis backpack is on the pricey side, but if you’re looking to invest in fashionable designer backpack, this is a perfect option. Made of smooth calfskin, a buckled strap adjusts the top handle and a drawstring cinches everything together. The shoulder straps can be adjusted, making it a perfect versatile fashion accessory to carry around. Although it’s called a backpack, this looks like it could be worn to a formal gathering with the straps taken off and used just as a handbag.
3.MCM Dual Stark Small BackpackA very urban style with iconic monogrammed leather, perfectly accented with the gold and black embellishments. Very street-fashion like, something I would definitely feature in an outfit post. This backpack would go amazing with any color, and I envision something like black skinny jeans, hightops, and dark vintage shirt.
4.Studded Small Metallic Leather BackpackAnything gold is a perfect fashion statement. If you like to turn heads and catch eyes, this is the perfect backpack for you. This dazzling bag is adorned with shimmering gold studs, leather panels, and even a gold zipper. If you want to go bold, go gold!
