Tote bags are great, but heavy laptops, cosmetic cases, and books can really wreak havoc on your shoulders. Plus, backpacks are cool again, so nobody will look twice at your bag of choice, except to admire it! The silhouette is modern and very chic; it shows the world that you've got places to go, but you still want to look great getting there. If you're getting ready to crush it at work, or looking for a chic alternative to your tried-and-true Fall bag, try one of these cute backpacks.
