This I know for sure: Nothing carries things to school better than a trusty backpack. Luckily, their style quotient is on the rise. Here are three cool options: ♥ BDG Lightweight Nylon Convertible Backpack ($15, pictured). This one's just plain pretty in every print and color, though it's probably best for a light book load.
♥ The Herschel Classic ($40). If you look up "backpack" in the dictionary... well, you know the rest. The Herschel is a time-tested favorite.
♥ Keep Chic and Carry-on Backpack ($60). Striped with a black satiny interior, this one is a style standout in any setting.
