School may be starting, but believe it or not, there is a way to make that first disheartening hike to class a little more enjoyable — a new messenger bag for all your school loot! Kick that nerdy backpack to the curb and opt for one of this season’s most stylish messengers to stow all your books, electronics, and other study must-haves on the go.
Of course, messenger bags aren’t just for students, so if you’re in the market for a new bag to tow your laptop or other work necessities, look no further! I love the edginess of this corset-inspired bag with lace-up details, courtesy of Kettle Black, but if you were hoping for something with a preppier vibe, this houndstooth patterned bag from Juicy Couture has “giddy schoolgirl” written all over it.
Ikat prints are still totally in, so I’m loving the tribal flair of this bag from Urban Outfitters, which is colorful without looking garish. For a more splurge-worthy staple, you might want to opt for a messenger with a more classic look that’ll still be stylish for years to come, like this buckled snake-embossed messenger by CC Skye, or this practical one from Banana Republic!
