Whether you’re going into high school or college, a cute yet efficient bag is necessary. The perfect school bag should be chosen to match your needs (like your course load, and your style).
Shoulder bags and cross-body bags are ideal for a student on the go. Choosing a bag in a bold color, like lime green or hot pink, will add spice to any outfit, and not to mention it is fun and eye-catching. Also nude cross-body bags or dark green bags are are a more safe approach.
Who says that backpacks have to have two straps? Ever since the resurgence of the New Prep trend, backpack alternatives, such as cross-body messengers and satchels, are becoming increasingly popular. As you are reading this, you might think how hard it was for you to take your eyes off of those Proenza Schouler PS1′s. Most of us, however, lack the financial ability to indulge ourselves with bags that cost over 2K. Another common problem with some backpack alternatives is the inadequate space the bag provides. This can be quite agitating for those who carry a lot of books and supplies around. Here, Pink & Black presents you some affordable backpack alternatives that incorporate both style and utility. Maybe it is time to set aside those JanSport’s for a while.
The Cambridge Satchel Company – The London-based satchel-making company had long established its name by its reputable and affordable quality. If you are looking for a leather cross-body bag, the Cambridge Satchel Company can definitely meet your demand. The bags come in not only the traditional black or brown leather, but also other unorthodox colors that nicely capture the youth spirit. Different sizes are also available based on your personal needs. Still unsatisfied? Take advantage of the personalization service to add uniqueness to your bag, or maybe even consider getting a “Batchel”, which is a satchel with a top handle, making it possible to carry your bag in multiple ways. To order, please visit the company’s website.
Preppy backpacks – Unlike the clean, scholarly look of those briefcase bags from The Cambridge Satchel Company, some backpacks give out a comparatively better expression of energy. They retain the traditional appearance of a backpack, but with a twist on their silhouettes and maybe some leather embellishments. Urban Outfitters is a good place to look for this type of backpack alternatives. To give you an idea, take a look at this Kimchi Blue Canvas Backpack.
If you feel that a smaller bag would suffice, then go for it. There is no limit or restrictions as to which specific style or size a backpack alternative must be. Any alternative can work well for you as long as you make sure that aside from having an appealing look it also has the necessary utility for your own convenience because, after all, it’s a bag used to carry supplies around the school.

Sure, it doesn’t seem like it now, but fall is fast approaching and with it comes school! A time for reunions, reinventions, and… shopping. And of course the cornerstone of any back to school wardrobe is the perfect bag. To find the right bag, it must meet several important criteria such as comfort, usefulness, and practicality, but above all, it has to be cute! Here are some top tips to go by when searching for your next it bag.
Your bag must be comfortable! Lugging all your heavy books around in a bag that cuts off circulation to your arm is not going to make for a good school day. That’s why there are so many styles to choose from, so you can find the one that best works for you!
Some good ideas are the classic backpack, which is great for carrying around everything you need for the whole day, and is also very easy to carry. Another pick is the messenger bag, which gives you easy access to what you need and distributes the weight of your books pretty evenly. A third option is the large tote, which is one of the most popular styles of school bag. Although it’s not as high on the comfort scale, as long as you don’t put your whole life in there, you should be good to go!
