How To Style: The Backpack
Posted on 12 October 2016
Athleisure is still all the rage, so what better item to add to your fall repertoire than a sleek leather backpack? But as any self-respecting woman knows, bags are an investment and unless they're versatile enough to be worn with multiple outfits, they may not end up in our closets. So lest you think that you can only carry a backpack to and from spin class, we’ve fashioned three starkly different looks to help you rethink this chic yet handy form.
1. Okay, okay, backpacks are inherently sporty, so our first look is obviously a gym-chic outfit. That doesn't mean it has to be boring, though! This fall, swap out your over-washed gym shirt for a long sports tunic layered over some leggings for a touch of femininity. Sling our stylish backpack over your shoulder and you're ready for both yoga and shopping!
2. Backpacks and jeans seem to be the model-off-duty look-du-jour, so take a page out of their book and pair some cropped jeans with a flared sleeve top for a city-casual look. Don’t forget your oversized, black sunnies and matching black sandals to tie in the color of the backpack.
3. Step your outfit up a notch and wear the backpack with a dress (yes, you read that right)! Slip dresses layered under bomber jackets make the magic combo this fall, being equal parts pretty and cool. Complete the look with some white sneakers and this leather backpack and you’re sure to stun during your girls’ night out!
