If the crisp fall weather has you longing for your middle-school days, channel the spirit with a chic backpack. They’ve been everywhere this season: In London, Olga Karput threw one over her shoulder, Chiara Ferragni carried hers like a purse, and Helena Bordon went for a teeny-tiny version.
While the street-style set may gravitate toward backpacks in crazy colors and stripes, the majority of this season’s backpacks are simple and clean looking. We rounded up a number of stylish options, from a vibrant red Opening Ceremony backpack to a play on a modern lunch bag, from a minty-fresh option to a perforated style.
