Hot Trend: Backpacks

I’ll admit – since leaving school, I haven’t thought a great deal about backpacks. Until recently. The backpack is making a HUGE comeback.

Spotted on the runways of Chanel, Givenchy, Alexander Wang and Hermes, this must have carry bag has been seen in all sorts of shapes and patterns. From animal prints to quilted chic to sports luxe styles to classic leather – it’s up to you.

Not only does this amazing carry all give you ample space for all your essentials, it gives your heavy handbag a break, meaning no more back ache!

Rihanna, Jennifer Garner, Whitney Port, Mary-Kate Olsen and Kate Bosworth to name but a few, have all been rocking their packs. Now it's your turn. Here are a few of our swiish top picks:
