With the words "class," "homework," and "school" lingering around in your heads, we thought we'd at least make those words feel a little better with some back-to-school shopping. First on the list? A backpack, of course—something cute to carry all those heavy, horrible textbooks in. Whether you're rocking a uniform or whatever you want, a backpack is a staple for your wardrobe at school (and home!), and we think it's is the perfect accessory to express your personal style. Look for backpacks with great prints and textures, like leather, patches, or even denim! Happy shopping.
