We're officially adopting a new outlook on color, in the name of summer. As much as we love the sleek and sophisticated effect of an all-black look, it's bright accessories like these vivid backpacks that remind us just how cool it is to be quirky.
Of course, it's no surprise that such show-stopping bags come from Meredith Wendell, the label that never fails to deliver, when it comes to statement-making accoutrements. From the oversized tassels tied up like shoe laces to the pretty touches of pink, these backpacks have all the trappings of grown-up add-ons (inspired by our childhood favorites, of course).
The pre-fall satchels are available now at Meredith Wendell, retailing at $395 to $595, and, needless to say, we're having trouble deciding which design's our fave. Click through to see them all, and kiss that paycheck goodbye.
