Save Steal Splurge: The Grown-Up Backpack

Remember back-to-school shopping? When you’d snag a few new things you actually wanted to go along with those binders, folders and graphic calculators? Those days might be long gone, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t celebrate fall with a few new additions to your wardrobe. And a trend that goes back to your days of arithmetic and reading comprehension? Backpacks. The hands-free carryalls are getting a chic makeover, giving them clean lines, luxe leather and details from last year’s bag of the moment, the bucket. These sophisticated takes on rucksacks will give you back-to-school nostalgia, but keep you looking perfectly polished, too.
