Between all of the textbooks, school supplies, and other random things required throughout the day, every student needs a practical, stylish, and not-too-expensive bag to carry around their essentials.

Still looking for that perfect bag to carry your laptop in style? Check out these not-so-basic backpacks, trendy totes, and must-have messenger bags for the back-to-school season!

Not-So-Basic Backpacks

Believe it or not, backpacks are actually going to be super-trendy this season! However, we’re not talking your basic, run-of-the-mill backpacks here. Ever since Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s fashion line, “The Row”, debuted a $39,000 crocodile-skin backpack, luxe knapsacks have been experiencing a major fashion moment.

Aside from being stylish, a back- pack is also perfect for lugging lots of heavy items across campus. Plus, with all of the adorable backpacks in stores now, it’s never been easier to find a style that fits your personal aesthetic.

Trendy Totes

Tote bags are always popular because they’re both cute and functional. The perfect tote can instantly make any outfit look über-chic and can be a great way to show off your personal style.

The only downside is that these bags aren’t very spacious and can’t handle heavy loads the same way a backpack can. On the plus side, though, a tote can work double duty as a go-to bag to carry around when you aren’t in class, so you’re likely to get a lot of bang for your buck!

Must-Have Messenger Bags

Messenger bags represent the middle ground between the first two styles. They have all the practicality of a roomy backpack, with similar style to a tote. These bags are also a classic, meaning they’ll never go out of style. So invest in a good messenger bag and you’ll have a durable and stylish choice for years to come.

Now all you need are the textbooks to fill them with. Yay?
