Posh Trend: Bringing Backpacks Back!

As a youth in Hollywood these days, you would barely survive on talent alone. It's all about selling your image and making a statement through your attire and accessories, and these season's must have accessory is the backpack!

As always, the Olsen twins were first to start a trend. Over a year ago, Ashley Olsen was seen lugging around her goods in a Henri Beguelin Parachute handbag, a Jimmy Choo dust bag and a quirky Alexandra Cassaniti Backpack. Her cheeky Pinkeye patterned backpack is a fresh approach to a trend which has the ability to look a bit "momsie". 

Recently Ashley Olsen was seen out getting her signature coffee in an oversized sweater, brown corduroy pants and Chanel ballet flats. She ditched her fussy handbags for a classic Prada Nylon Backpack. It features two functional exterior pockets, adjustable straps and secure flap and drawstring closure. This backpack is available in the Prada collection every season thus makes it a great investment piece for years to come.

Whitney Port was also seen wearing numeruous backpacks recently including the classic Prada Nylon backpack in black while shopping in her American Apparel turquoise blue leggings and Chanel 5120 round sunglasses.

A few days ago, Ashley was also spotted in Paris France wearing a timeless beige wool coat, Elizabeth and James loafers on her feet and Linda Farrow for The Row dark sunglasses. Her bag of choice this time was a vintage tan and brown backpack, perfect for hand free sightseeing in the City of Lights. She continued to carry the bag while shopping in New York.

Rihanna is another celebrity who is never short of handbags and accessories. As a former face of the Gucci house, she continued to support the brand by wearing a Gucci Darwin Backpack. This blue backpack features multiple gold zipper pockets and interchangeable straps which allow you to wear it as a regular handbag too!

The trend isn't only for the ladies, men who are traditionally known to wear backpacks can see their practical bags take a more fashionable turn. New season styles feature bursts of color as seen on Chris Brown, bold prints and luxurious leather textures as seen in the SS10 Louis Vuitton men's runway shows.

The backpack movement is a lifesaver for those who are suffering from bad packs and shoulders thanks to lugging around oversized handbags over the years. I haven't worn a backpack since my elementary schooling days so these preppy backpacks will definitely leave me nostalgic.
