Fashionista NOW: 6 Stylish Ways To Wear A Backpack Fashion Inspiration

Lugging a backpack around is cool again. Here are six stylish ways to wear a backpack this summer.

Calling it a backpack season would be a sweeping statement but you’d be blind not to notice the variety of trendy rucksacks decorating backs of the stylish breed on and off the internet.

The NPR’s latest pop culture columnist Constancee C.R. White wrote of the boundary-pushing spirit induced by wearing a backpack:

“Backpacks’ outdoorsy heritage gives wearers a patina of daring and freedom.”

If you’re thinking of bulky backpacks in dizzying bright hues and bold patterns that may cause a viewer from the distance to suffer instant migraines, well, the in-your-face spine-friendly backpacks are indeed available for the taking in the spirit of the 90s fashion revival but you need not jump on this specific bandwagon if you’ve moved beyond the phase of novelty bags.

The current backpack trend spotted on fashion forward bloggers is much more subdued in design and size. Keeping in line with the minimalist style atmosphere that is infecting the contemporary fashion masses, consider backpacks as a classic accessory that lurks quietly in the background or as a statement-making tool that marries function and aesthetics effectively, within your fashion stamp of approval.

To the fashion imagery below for 6 stylish ways to sport the backpack like a pro courtesy of lookbookers:

Prints of the monochromatic black and white sort are splendidly easy to style. A mini backpack in palm leaf prints rendered in a B&W color palette is spot on trend that it delivers the final punchline on this basic tank-and-denim look.

For conservative backpack-loving fashionistas, consider hues of the neutral variety; cream, nude, beige, tan, camel or plain brown. A backpack that can perform as a hand-carry tote is perfect for switching it up when your back needs a breather. With brown backpack, you’ll find details like pockets and buckles bring a certain flavor into it.

There is also freedom to dress up a little adventurously when accessories don’t compete for attention.

Dress down an all-black look by carrying a patterned and fringed backpack as a nod to the free-spirited side within you. The backpack in this instance, uplifts the mood of the outfit, where our eyes land upon immediately after the striking shiny mane.

Canvas bags are grand for summer. Bags made of breathable cotton and canvas help to lessen trapped heat from about our person.
