19 Backpacks To Get You Excited For Back To School Season

Nope, we won’t miss summer at all

September is right around the corner, which means that before we know it, summer will be coming to a close. Sure, we’re not exactly thrilled about that, but fall’s arrival doesn’t have to necessarily be such a bad thing.

Soon, we can layer up in cozy knits without sweating to death and slosh around in freshly fallen leaves. And, we’ll have the perfect excuse to snatch up a cute new backpack—ahem, even if we don’t have classes on our schedule this semester.

We rounded up 19 of the season’s sweetest backpacks that deliver as much function as they do fashion. From retro prints to geometric shapes, there’s a little something for everyone. So, whether you’re hitting the books or just looking to make your morning commute a more hands-free experience, our picks are destined to pump you up for the semester—and fall—to begin.

Check out our favorites, below.
