Bust A Backpack...

If the word rucksack brings memories flooding back of a mini version of yourself, trotting around the playground with your bag strapped firmly to your back stuffed full of sticker books, yikes pencils and your daily packet of frazzles...then fear not, you're not alone! It all kicked off with a 'My Little Pony' version, later upgraded to an Eastpak and eventually replaced by an Animal record bag! We've all been through the phases and I think we'd all agree we weren't too sad to see the back of them...BUT they're back!! 

Thankfully this time round it's less about practicality and lot more about style...think soft slouchy leathers, fringing, studding, texture all slung on one shoulder - take note, it's still not cool to wear it strapped tightly to both shoulders!!! 

If it's good enough for Cara D then it's good enough for both you and me! 




There are so many beautiful options out there, especially in the designer realm, however, as ever, we've been searching high and low for a range of backpacks that will fit all different budgets, occasions and situations! See below for our top 3BM picks...

Effortlessly cool with COS, £115




Animal meets studs...go awesome with Alexander Wang, £1105


The definition of boho chic with Topshop, £100


Cosy yet stylish with this shealing number from Whistles, £395


Cheap, cheerful and quilted with Zara, £39.99


Go simple yet fabulous with Stella McCartney, £680


High shine peek-a-boo fun with Free People, £168


And on that note, we're off sack shopping! Hmmm we wonder which will be the leader of the (back)pack...?
