The Backpack is Back

The Backpack is Back Zara


I had never thought I would join the backpack wagon until I had become lazy with my style these days. I only currently own one backpack and it’s from Zara. No surprise there! I had purchased this last year and it had been with me throughout my Toronto trip and even till now. I have noticed at times, it seems to unlock by itself whilst I’m out and about, leaving me paranoid and constantly checking, or the lock is stuck and it’s hard to open. The straps are detachable and could turn the bag into a shoulder bag which had proven to be VERY useful.

It had made me realise how efficient backpacks are and doesn’t ache my shoulders. Oh and it also helps ease my symmetry OCD. I need a new suitable one so I could take it to the gym with me. All of this backpack talk makes me miss my Adidas one I had whilst in secondary school. Ah man, I could fit so much stuff in there and still have a lot of room. Definitely like Mary Poppins. Let me just reminisce for a second there.

I’m currently browsing around and am currently lusting over these babies:

1. Accessorize; 2. Longchamp; 3. ASOS;
4. Zara; 5. Zara; 6. Rag & Bone;
7. Ted Baker; 8. M2Malletier; 9. Mulberry;

Are you happy the backpack is back in trend?

    The Ted Baker and Mulberry ones are gorgeous! I haven't got a rucksack other than like a big litre sports one for travelling but these are cute x

    I love a good backpack, but I'm definitely not cool enough to rock one I think. Still, that M2Malletier one is so cool, I'm willing to give it a try!

    The Cara Delevingne collection at Mulberry has to be one of my favourites yet. I particularly love the natural leather bags so this is right up my street 🙂 X

    I don't remember when backpacks were in the first time, but I am glad to see they are coming in! Easier to hold than a purse and can fit just as much.

    It is back indeed. And with cooler patterns and designs too! I love backpacks because they are so convenient!

    My daughter got one from Marc Jacobs for school that she just loves. Seems like it truly is coming back in style and loving your picks.

    I've always used backpacks, the different type, for working out and playing basketball. The ones in your picture looks like something my mom and cousins would love. Great post. Keep it up!

    Is it trendy, fashionable and sturdy at the same time?

    I definitely love backpacks over handbags anyday. Both your hands are free and weight is equally distributed on both shoulders. Only during parties and get togethers where all I need is my walet & cellphone, hand bags make sense!

    I am a fond of a backpack. And I am glad that it is trending again! In fact, I have a tremendous collection of a backpack started in my college days.

    Yes, backpack is back and I'm indeed happy. I am more comfortable bringing a backpack than any too girly bags. Can't eait to get my hands a new one though.

    I don't typically carry a backpack as a purse, but they sure did come in handy when my kids were small. You can pack so much in there!

    I think with so many stylish and elegant looking back pack now, it's definitely back in style. It's also more comfortable to carry than regular bags.

    I never knew backpacks even ever went out of fashion. They are practical and keeps your hands free to do or carry other stuff.
