backpacks are only for students? Well, the memo is out: backpacks are back and
they are more chic than ever. You’d be surprised at how many ways you can wear
your backpack with style.
longer just meant to carry heavy textbooks, backpacks are now making a
statement as an accessory for the out-and-about girl on the street. With so
many textures, fabrics, prints and colour palettes available for
experimentation, designers are flexing their creative muscles to produce
stylish backpacks worthy of every occasion.
you’re aching to switch your handbags or clutches for something comfier, take
your pick from the array of backpacks for women online. But first, check out what the stars are wearing.
Here are 5 celebrities who are also feeling the trend:
Olivia Wilde
Wilde’s style has always been utilitarian chic. The brainy and beautiful
actress does not waste time on pointless accessories, and prefers pieces that
are practical yet stylish instead. Here, she carries a limited-edition army
canvas backpack she helped design with Alternative Apparel to fund the Academy
for Peace and Justice in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. At the launch event of the
collection, Olivia teamed her backpack with an A.L.C. printed maxi skirt, a
black racer-back tank top, and brown ankle-strap sandals.”
Bella Thorne
I know,
what a crazy outfit, right? Especially for Bella Thorne, who is usually seen in
sweet dresses and heels. But somehow, this outfit is so outlandish it works.
From the checked sneakers to the bright green jeans to the pink-heart-shaped
sunglasses and bright red Boohoo Natalie backpack, Bella is doing quirky cute
right. Bonus accessory: an adorable puppy.
Mary-Kate Olsen
half of the trend-setting Olsen twins, Mary-Kate Olsen flaunts her avant-garde
style here with an embroidered emerald jacket by Dries Van Noten, a loose black
top, dark wash skinnies and a Pendleton leather and fabric backpack. The
backpack lends a touch of laidback earthiness to the elaborate outfit and tames
down the eye-catching jacket for a more casual vibe.
4. Kate
As a
lover of all things pink and girly, I’m in love with Kate Bosworth’s ensemble
here. That furry Isabel Marent sweater is all kinds of cute when matched with
pastel pink shorts and a white backpack from Alexander Wang. To avoid going
overboard with the sweetness, she slipped into a pair of brown ankle boots and
a pair of Ray Ban aviator shades that look sleek with a high ponytail. The
effect is ladylike and smart-casual.
Selena Gomez
proponent of the boots and shorts trend, Selena Gomez goes for a boho-inspired
look with an oversized oatmeal-coloured Free People top and brown knit scarf,
cutoffs and brown ankle boots. The black backpack casually slung from her arm
adds a touch of edginess to the laidback outfit.
