Back in elementary school, our backpacks let our personalities shine. (Yes, those clear versions that said "as if" definitely summed us up.) And, we don't think that should change now that you've left the playground for the adult world — after all, backpacks can still be sophisticated and show off your unique style.
To keep you hands-free for everything this season throws your way (which, yes, still includes your 9-to-5), we've culled 20 backpacks perfect for any personality. Consider yourself a beach bunny? We've got a straw bucket for the shore. Wanna bring out your wild side at the office? Opt for a cheetah-print number. Now, you can get back to juggling lattes on the way into work or double-fisting ice-cream cones on the boardwalk.
