Trade In Your Purses For Chic Backpacks

We haven't paid this much attention to backpacks since deciding between a Lisa Frank or Power Rangers bookbag during our back-to-school shopping days. Thankfully the variety out there also done some growing up, and there are plenty to pick that are so cool you might consider trading in your everyday handbags for a backpack instead. Ahead, we've found our favorite backpacks that combine the roominess of our top totes with the hands-free qualities of our favorite cross-bodies...to think you once considered those rainbow Dancing Dolphins as your backpack high-point. Pshaw!
