How to Style Your Backpack

Now that college has ended, you were probably thinking your backpack days were over. Think again. Backpacks have become more mainstream for twentysomethings in recent years. The versatility of an all-in-one bag is appealing for millennials who are constantly on the go. Backpacks have the ability to work triple duty: purse, work tote and overnight bag. We’re sharing our favorite new backpacks that you can use all summer long.

Preppy Poly Backpack

1. Preppy Poly Backpack

Summertime is made for lounging poolside and afternoon bike rides – and so is this Preppy Poly Backpack. This backpack is incredibly lightweight, so you won’t feel weighed down with all-day wear. You can fit your necessities inside, with a secret pocket in front to stash your phone (and your sunscreen). It’s also water resistant, so feel free to ride your bike through that sprinkler. Our social media team loved using the Preppy Poly backpack for the local biking pub crawl.

It has a separate laptop sleeve to keep your computer secured, plus a front zip pocket for easy access to your phone, keys and snacks. Our favorite part of this backpack is the tech outlet to feed your headphones through so you can discreetly jam to Beyoncé on your morning walk to the coffee shop.
