The backpack is all grown up and ready for you to fall in love with it

3rd February, 2018

I often gravitate towards accessories that merge practicality and style in one, which is why the backpack has definitely become one of my go-tos. It’s just so easy and makes carrying around my everyday essentials a breeze. And the good news is that the backpack has undergone a modern transformation that’s turned it into a far more fashionable proposition. Think chic colour palettes, interesting hardware and contemporary shapes that have made it into a stylish accessory on par with classic styles such as the trusty tote and top handle bag. Whether you’re after a designer option from the likes of Saint Laurent and Chloe or a cheap and cheerful version, there’s no doubt that you will be spoilt for choice. This is the ideal bag to have on hand when you’re travelling or just have a busy day ahead.

Shop the look: Backpacks

2nd March, 2016


The backpack has certainly come a long way from the kind I used to use to carry all my books to school! These days the backpack is super stylish, often comes in a great colour palette and and has the right amount of understated detailing to make it a classic piece for years to come. I have been glued to my Scanlan Theodore backpack for awhile now simply because it makes it so easy to carry all my essentials when I’m out and about (it’s especially perfect for when I’m shopping as it leaves both my hands free to browse through the racks). Here are some of my tops picks if you’re looking to add a backpack to your bag collection, I promise you’ll never look back…




STEALS (under $120!!)


Style (clockwise from left):

See by Chloe Vicki backpack

The tassels on this bag set it apart from your usual, garden variety backpack. It’s also quite roomy which means it’s perfect to take with you when you’re travelling.

The Row 9 pebbled leather backpack 

Made from luxe pebbled leather, this backpack is taken next level with the gold hardware. I love that you can carry it on your back but also use the top handle to carry it more like a traditional handbag.

Rag & Bone Mini Pilot backpack

Rag & Bone do some gorgeous utilitarian pieces with a sophisticated touch and they’ve taken this bag into definite grown up territory with the streamlined, understated design.

Alexander Wang Prisma Skeletal backpack

Straight from Alexander Wang’s popular ‘Prisma’ range, I love the rose gold hardware and super soft textured leather on this particular bag.


Steal (clockwise from left):

Eyelet backpack

For a more inexpensive option, this backpack from ASOS is a bargain at only $68!

Structured pocket backpack

This offers plenty of space to carry your essentials (and more!) plus it’s quite a simple design which makes it easier to mix and match with different outfits.

Suede and Leather backpack

Not liking the traditional backpack style? This roll top bag is ideal for those who are after something a little quirkier.
