Do you own a backpack? Backpacks are not new in the market. They were there a couple of years ago only that the fashion industry has revolutionized them. ‘Old’ backpacks were bigger in size and were used mostly while travelling. Today, backpacks come in small sizes. They are stylish, fashionable, and we use them in our everyday life.
With celebrities, bag lovers, and modern fashionistas rocking their stylish Vegan leather backpacks on Instagram, backpacks have increased in popularity. Thus, the market is flooded with hundreds of styles and designs. This can be confusing while choosing your perfect backpack.
Here are some tips on how to choose the perfect backpack that suits you.
1. Choose a Backpack with the Right Material
Bags are expensive and it is not something you buy every month. Therefore, the material you choose should be durable. Backpacks made from leather material are the best since their fabric is long-lasting.
How much are you willing to spend to own a designer backpack? Some designs and styles are super classic but cost a fortune. However, they don’t go out of fashion.
On the other hand, new design trends can go out of fashion quickly. If you are trying a new trend, it’s advisable not to spend too much. This is especially if you are not so sure about the designer brand of the backpack.
If you are on a budget, consider the mid-level designer brands. They have a variety of backpack styles and designs to choose from.
3. Select the Right Size
Just like wearing clothes, you need a backpack that will look good on you. The size of your backpack should be in proportion to your body type. Fashion experts advise that if you are short, don’t carry a backpack that you can fit in. Your backpack needs to be above your hips and it should not be too big.
For tall people, avoid small backpacks and carry the medium ones. Also, ensure that it ends above your waistline.
No matter how stylish and elegant your backpack is, if it does not go with your body type, it is unfashionable.
Your backpack is the everyday bag. You wear with everything, and also have it while going everywhere. Thus, its design needs to be versatile.
It needs to relate to your work attire and your casual outfit. Choose a backpack with a color that compliments most of your outfits. Neutral colors such as black, grey, nude or brown are safe options. Matching your backpack with your outfit creates a fashionable style.
You should feel comfortable and happy while carrying your backpack. Never choose style over comfort.
The straps on your backpack should be comfortable. This will help you avoid shoulder and back pain problems. They should also be adjustable to enhance flexibility and fit properly.
Depending on how comfortable you feel, your backpack can be worn in different ways. You can opt to wear two straps on your back which is much comfortable because the weight of the backpack is distributed to both shoulders. If your backpack is light, carrying it on one shoulder is also stylish. Some people carry it on their hands or wear it as a sling bag to elevate their look.
6. The Right Pockets
Do you love your bag as an empty void inside or you love it with some inside and external pockets? Depending on your needs, it is good to choose a backpack that has the right pockets for you.
7. Easy to Clean
Backpacks carry a lot of stuff and they can get messy and dirty easily. Select a backpack that can be cleaned easily. Some backpacks come with an inner lining that can easily be removed, washed and returned. Go for such.
Backpacks are awesome. It is a must-have for a modern woman and any fashion enthusiasts. They allow you to be hands-free and still carry all your essentials with you. Since it is your everyday bag, these tips will help you to choose the best backpack that is of quality, class, and stylish.
