Backpacks are definitely having a (fashion) moment right now — and I’m not talking about the over-sized nylon versions you used to wear in grade school. Today’s take offers far more sophisticated silhouettes in luxe fabrics and finishes such as leather, fringe and metal grommets. If you’re leary about going all the way in on this handbag trend, I think this leather embossed drawstring version from Asos is a chic way to tip-toe into backpack territory.
You can wear it during the work week to lug all of your daily essentials (without looking like a bag lady) or rock it on the weekend while you’re running errands (this bag is perfect for stashing any goodies you might pick up at a flea market).
Keep it stylish,
