A designer backpack is more than just a backpack, and it's more than just a designer piece. The label gives you luxe appeal, as well as the knowledge that you're walking around with a quality bag on your shoulder. However, it's the versatility that matters. Handbags are magical items like that. Almost anything can qualify as a backpack if you want it to, especially since backpacks, knapsacks, and book bags evolve in style and purpose every year. Don't envision the same kind of bag you carried around in middle school. Backpack fashion is now much more stylish than that.
The Perfect Carry-on
One reason backpacks are still in vogue for adults is because they're ideal for traveling. A traditional backpack you can throw over your shoulder is the ideal piece of carry-on luggage. All those compartments are capable of holding many goodies and travel essentials, including earbuds and gum. Because backpacks are specially designed to hold books, folders, and notebooks, there's also ample room for changes of clothes, travel-sized toiletries, and tablets or laptops. Just look for updated designs. It's time to trade canvas and nylon for the soft, buttery leather of a DKNY backpack.
If you love the idea of an attractive carry-on, but you aren't thrilled about carting around a regular backpack, no worries. Discover a wide selection of women's designer crossbody purses and bags instead. A crossbody bag has plenty of room for travel must-haves, plus it's a smart move. Strap the bag across your body, and no one can grab it off your shoulder.
The Day-to-day Bag
Backpacks can double as handbags. More than that, they can double as satchels, briefcases, and laptop bags, too. In lieu of taking one of those to work or school, opt for a backpack. In addition to bringing along all the things you need for that big meeting or your toughest class, you can even throw in your tablet and phone, novels, your makeup bag, and your gym clothes. Plan to head out after work? Throw in your hottest pair of heels and a new top for the evening. Your bag can handle it.
For an alternative type of backpack, shop for women's designer totes, such as those from Juicy Couture. You get all the space, plus style to spare. Browse for bags that echo your personality. There's no reason your bag can't stand out from the crowd.
The Supplemental Bag
Sometimes your purse simply isn't large enough to handle everything you need to bring with you. At other times, a cute handbag may tempt you too much to think about it practically. That's when you buy a supplemental bag. Why not carry two? Choose two bags that complement each other. For example, check out a few women's designer hobo bags or clutches, find your favorite, then pick out a backpack that matches your main bag.
A woman's bag tells a story about her style, her personality, and even her passions. It also holds a significant portion of her life. You deserve to indulge in a stylish, serviceable bag that's both fashionable and functional. You'll find that in spades at thredUP, where your new bag is up to 90% off its retail price!
