Fashionista NOW: Sleek Black Faux Leather Backpacks ~ Christmas Gift Inspiration

Credit | Thao Nhi Le

Do you know a friend or a family member who lives in a wardrobe devoid of vibrant colors or prints? Give her/him the perfect Christmas gift that will remain a timeless staple all-year-round: the faux leather backpack! Scour our list to get inspired and hopefully find the right chic backpack!

My new bag infatuation comes in the form of the small-to-medium sized black faux leather backpack. The minimalist look of the bag appeals to me immediately and just like the black handbag trend that I’ve mentioned in a previous post, the black backpack serves as an easy addition into a variety of outfit styles.

A print-on-print ensemble requires a solid-colored bag to act as a neutral contrast so the outfit gets to ‘pop’ whereas in an outfit of chic black and white, the backpack’s little embellishments like buckles, zippers, tassels or a textural finish help to bring an eye-catching appeal to the modern monochromatic wardrobe.

As always, to the looks below to find out how the stylish people on LB are currently sporting the backpack trend:
