Trend Alert: The Backpack Revival

If you’re any way into fashion you may have noticed the biggest 90s fashion revival yet has begun to hit stores over the past few weeks. I never thought I’d see the day where I was thinking of purchasing one of these again but I should have really known better!

Everything in fashion comes back into vogue at one point or another, and thankfully this is one 90’s trend revival I think I can jump on board with. And no I’m not talking about the choker, I’m talking about the backpack!

Some of you may already know that in less than six weeks, Dave and I are jumping on a plane and beginning a two month trip around the world. Because of that, I need to get myself a good backpack so this trend has come back right on time for me.

I’ve been doing a lot of research on what style, size and colour backpack to get over the past couple of weeks, there are a lot to choose from let me tell you! And because of that, I decided to share my top finds with you all in case you’re on the lookout for a cute backpack for Autumn too.

Here are eight of my top choices currently available both in store and online:

ALDO Chevron Drawstring Backpack €66.67

Love Moschino Quilted Leather Backpack €256

ASOS Leather Boxy Backpack €73.33

I’m currently torn between the River Island laser cut mini backpack and the Whistles mini verity option. There obviously is a big price difference but I like the mini size of both. I think mini is definitely the best option for me because the last thing I want is to feel like a teenager again with my schoolbag on my back!

I think I’ll have to mull it over for another while but I’ll keep you posted on what option I go for. I have a thing for the silver metallic Whistles one too but in the interests of travelling practicality, I sadly think I’ll have to pass on that one.

What do you think of the backpack trend, are you going to embrace it this Autumn?

  1. I got that Mango one, just randomly last minute because I was on the way to a concert and needed a bigger bag asap and now I love, love, love it! Kevin calls me Dora the Explorer when I wear it but I think it’s cool, haha!

    1. No way Angela, that’s so funny that you bought it, it’s gorgeous. Haha, Dora! Love it! 🙂 I have to say, I did feel a bit like I was going to school when I was trying some of them on!! But I do really like them so I think I’ll get over that pretty quickly! 🙂 X
