Bags have been taking a seat on the shelves ever since the backpack trend made its way onto the fashion scene. Backpacks remind us of our middle school days when all we wanted was a cool backpack to show off our personality, and now there’s no problem finding one that can represent our personal styles. From fringe detailed to urban prints, there’s just about anything that you can have on a backpack.
The pain of carrying so much in our bags while lugging it on one shoulder is now gone. These fashionable and trendy backpacks offer comfort, support, and much more room for us to store our girly goodies. Half the time while wearing these comfy back slingers it’s like they’re not even there! There’s no way it can get better than that.
It seems like no one can resist this new trend that continues to be more creative with each variation that comes out. Many of these backpack beauties were spotted at recent musical festivals, like Coachella, and were deemed as part of “the survival guide” by both women and men. When it comes to backpacks, there is no gender discrimination. Men can rock their personal styles just as well with the wide array of backpack options.
Free People has mastered the art of that carefree and feel good lifestyle. Backpacks fit right into their creative outlook by being easy to wear and able to fit whatever you want while traveling. By adding their own hippie-like style to these back huggers, it’s perfection for all of us.
