Trend How-To: Backpacks

Every now and then a trend comes along that your body thanks the fashion world for. My curves celebrated the moment high-waisted garments were back in and here to stay, and since mid-2010 we’ve been able to shamelessly enjoy the equal weight distribution necessary for healthy spinal placement that a backpack provides.


Read: a hot bag, sans shoulder pain.


But where have all the backpacks gone? A favourite of Rhianna, Daisy Lowe, Ashley Olsen, Kanye West and even the Beibs, this on-trend functional and frivolous accessory has been a slow-burner to Australian streets.


If you’ve been thinking about taking the plunge, don’t think – just do. There aren’t any hard and fast rules to wearing this schoolyard basic, as they come in all shapes, sizes and for all occasions.


I am lusting after this dandelion yellow Marc by Marc Jacobs number that could make a convert out of anyone.

    I love backpacks though I usually wear them on one shoulder and I always remember to take them off on public transport! That’s one of the major annoyances of traveling, people crushing you with their bags and not giving a damn.

    I love the practicality of backpacks but they don’t always seem appropriate – have to be careful at work, for example. Sometimes they just seem too casual.
