Backpacks you won't want to Banish

Fashionable backpacks. It's not an oxymoron {anymore}. Backpacks have gotten a bad rap over the years, and I distinctly recall telling an adult friend of mine that "friends don't let friends wear backpacks." Not only are backpacks back, but fannypacks are making a comeback too! *gasp* (We'll save them for another time.) But backpacks can remind you of the one that your mom picked out and made you carry all year. Or the one that you thought was so cool, until you looked at it the next year and wondered, "What on earth was I thinking?" And then there's the one that you had to have because everyone else had it.... But this year shall be different! This year, backpacks are definitely cool, and there are so many more choices than the totally reliable and functional backpacks of yesteryear. (Not that there is anything wrong with them.) But if you are ready to branch out, and maybe step out of your comfort zone, we've got your backside covered.

With all these choices, it's obvious that designers have put backpacks and totes at the top of their back to school list. And it's about time! We were tired of looking the same as everybody else. What's interesting is that with all these choices, top designers are designing backpacks too... and we stumbled across some we'd sport as every day bags above. Our most drool-worthy? Well... it just happens to be by a favorite shoe designer, Sophia WebsterWhat do you think, do you have a favorite??
