That trope of juggling a stack of books under your chin, balancing a coffee on top, and teetering on heels ... that’s for the movies — not real university life. Love it or hate it, your college fashion is dictated in part by the practicalities of your lifestyle, like transporting each day's essentials and a few 3,000-page textbooks. Instead of lugging around a flimsy contraption for those babies, opt for a statement-making schoolbag that can easily adapt and enhance your daily grind. We’ve rounded up cute, convenient schoolbags for back-to-school shopping (yep, it's that time of year already) that'll keep your stuff organized and make your walk to class more of a runway and less like a tightrope.
