Best Backpacks For Fall: Style Meets Function

There’s nothing better than throwing all of your books, daily items and chargers into your backpack before heading out the door for class in the morning and having everything fit. Backpacks are the best kind of bag for busy college students, but while they’re totally functional, they’re often incredibly unattractive. Lugging around a heavy black backpack everyday is something many of us reluctantly do.

Instead of using a backpack solely for its great functionality, let it be an extension of your personal style, just like any other accessory you wear. Check out VALLEY’S picks of the best backpacks for any style that will fit all of your things while throwing something over your shoulder that you’d actually like to carry.
