Back Packs have come a long way since we all used to chuck them over our shoulder and walk to school, bemoaning the weight of them on our back. Now they have upgraded to fashion accessories and all the fashion conscious celebrities have one, rather than carting an out of date hand bag around! If you want the latest look in back packs, what should you be keeping your eyes out for and what are the trends telling us will be top of the fashion packs this season? Let’s have a look shall we?
Florals are still the main fashion style for this summer and autumn and this Abbey Ditsy Floral Back Pack from Accessorize ticks all the boxes. Gorgeous browns and pinks in a pretty pink flower print on a blue background, two side and one front pockets, leather straps and four metallic buckles make this back pack one of my favourites. Costed at £32 and available from www.accessorize.com
