Fashionable backpacks to tote around the city
It’s back-to-school season! Even though we may not be kids anymore (at least on the outside), we can celebrate September by treating ourselves to a little retail therapy. Backpacks often have a reputation for being… dare we say… “touristy,” and just the thought of a knapsack often conjures bad memories of loaded backpacks being worn by fellow passengers on a crowded New York subway car. (If you’re carrying a full backpack during peak hours on the train, it’s always polite to take it off and hold it in front or at your sides to avoid bashing someone.) Still, we can’t ignore the practicality of the old school knapsack, and fortunately, this year, designers are offering plenty of fashionable backpacks for big city life.
