It is a known fact that where perennial trendsetter Mary Kate Olsen goes, fashionistas will surely follow. While she is known for her eccentric and, at times, off-beat aesthetic, she has an unquestionable eye for style. As such, ever since we spotted MK carrying a backpack at a restaurant opening in New York City, we’ve been expecting an influx of backpack-toting, hip young things to pop up on the streets.
Happily, several fashion-forward brands are on top of the backpack comeback, meaning there is a bunch of options for you to choose from. While Mary Kate opted for a bohemian-luxe look, pairing a patchwork leather backpack with a forest green Dries Van Noten jacket, we think there is a backpack out there for everyone. For those partial to a rocker-chic aesthetic, feast your eyes on Alexander Wang’s Sydney Backpack. If you prefer an earthier, low-key look, head straight to The SAK’s Eco Harmony Backpack.
No matter what style you choose, there is a whole world of backpacks to muse over. For further inspiration, take a look at Chanel’s Fall 2009 collection or Tory Burch’s summer collection, both of which incorporate the look. With that, we present you with Top Buys: Backpacks.
