19 Cool Backpacks for Fall 2017

Bustle and Coveteur are working together to bring you the best mix of the season’s fashion and beauty releases, shopping tips, and service stories in ways that are both inspirational and attainable. Check The Fall Style Edit channel weekly to see what we’re up to.


Just like comfortable sneakers and wide-legged pants, highly practical backpacks are trending again for fall 2017. And thank goodness: Whether you’re a student, intern, or anyone else who just has to lug around a ton of sh*t, it’s nice to have an accessory option that won’t strain your back any time you want to, you know, actually carry something in it.

As the backpack’s popularity grows, so does the number of backpack styles you can find with each new season. This fall, we’ve got a little something for everyone, whether you want a mini backpack (there’s no shame in going the fashion-over-function route) or a massive pack to carry your whole life around in on a daily basis. As always, there’s plenty of canvas and leather for the backpack purists, but we also get our fair share of bold patterns, metallic finishes, and even some furry options. Scroll through to see the coolest backpacks available to buy right now.
