If you're stuck on the idea that backpacks are only meant for schoolchildren, it's time to reconsider. Purses, totes, and fanny packs are great—but there's something especially enticing about the fashion backpack. Perhaps it's the nostalgia that comes along with wearing one; or maybe it's the practicality of carrying your belongings on your back, rather than lugging them on your arm. Either way, we're enthusiastic about the backpack's return. Here is a selection of styles worth splurging on.
