It feels like the school year just ended yet we’re already looking ahead to back-to-school steals and deals to make the transition from enjoyable summer to total bummer easier (and cheaper). We can already faintly hear the ringing of the late bell and the continuous “stop Mom, quit it Dad” as we try to take the perfect first day of school photo.

This is the time where function stills meets fun and fashion for your elementary school student. The work load gets heavier, so your little academic needs to be prepared; that means multiple compartments and a slightly larger size. Garnet Hill has fantastic mid-to-late elementary age options for growing tastes; currently, the site is also running an offer for free lunch box with purchase!
The Herschel Supply Co. has taken over the spot as “must have accessory” for tweens and young teens; even adults are utilizing these chic backpacks for traveling and to-and-from the gym. They’re slightly pricier than the standard nylon satchel but are made to last. We love the muted colors and minimal prints, because they go with every outfit and will stay timelessly in style.
With more distance learning options in high school curriculum than ever before, backpacks are taking on a smaller, more style-conscious size for older students. We love the look of a cinched leather (or pleather) backpack or a super sporty option. Urban Outfitters has tons of “traveler” looking accessories while North Face and other sporting goods stores are one-stop shops for all kinds of gear.
