4 Cool Backpacks For Fall That Won’t Make You Look Like A Fourth Grader

Backpacks are back, and not just for the elementary school set. With designers like Alexander Wang sending backpacks down the runway, there's never been a better time to invest in a grown-up version. Light on the wallet (and the sore shoulders), these stylish options will make you fall in love with backpacks all over again:

Purse-like leather and antiqued hardware make Aqua's Beverly backpack the ideal choice for backpack first-timers.

If you have a laptop, shop our recommendations for laptop-suitable bags.

Urban Outfitters' Ecote Canvas Backpack finds the perfect balance between rugged and urban in one of the season's hottest trends: military. Plus it's large enough to fit all your personal items and then some, so ditch those extra sacks and purses.

Try pairing this rugged bag with a structured blazer for a chic contrast.

Go modern collegiate with Fossil's Vintage Reissue Backpack. The rich brown, vintaged leather screams "New England in the fall," and the back straps can be removed, allowing you to carry the bag as a tote. Two bags in one (!).

Eco-friendly fans will love ModCloth's Canvassing Backpack, which is made from 100% recycled cotton. And a lightweight, simple bag like this won't ever go out of style.
