8 Cute Backpacks for All Your Summer Gear

Forget everything you remember about goofy school backpacks: These fun and stylish bags come in trendy hues and fabrics, and are roomy enough to carry all of your daily summer essentials. Here are 8 backpacks that will have you too cool for school in no time! 

Denim goes with everything. This ripped denim backpack from Topshop is affordable at $60, but oh-so-cute that Beyonce rocked it while dining in London.

MCM is renowned for their leather, so what happens when you throw Swarovski crystals on an already-fab backpack? This small studded backpack is serious bling at $1790.

Backpack meets sophistication. This Proenza Schouler Large Leather Backpack costs a pretty penny at $2,105 but it’s timeless silhouette promises a place in your closet for years to come. At the very least, it makes for great backpack porn.

Alexander Wang is your favorite artist’s favorite fashion designer. A favorite of everyone from Nicki Minaj to Kanye West, his designs range from sleek to zany. This Prism bag is a classy tote ideal for day or evening.

Love leather but want to be PETA-friendly? ASOS Backpack with Double Buckle Detail has the look of leather but is totally synthetic. A backpack that looks good and you can feel good about buying.

An oldie but goodie. Jansport has been making backpacks forever and chances are, you’ve rocked one a semester or two. The High Stakes collection features cool colors and prints and at $40 each, pick up one (or three).


Prints are all the rage this season. Rihanna’s collection for River Island has a great selection of printed backpacks from tribal to Aztec. Snag ‘em while you can. These bags sell out fast.
