How to Choose a Backpack

Aug 23, 2013

One of the best parts of heading back to school is buying a new backpack! But, with sooo many choices, how will you ever decide which one to get? These tips will help you narrow down your search to find the right bag!

Get a Budget

Price can be a huge factor in buying something. Ask your parents what your budget is. They might want to spend $20, or maybe they will let you go with something more expensive.

Do Your Research

Before you can choose a bag, you need to know what your options are. The internet is a great place to start! Check out the websites for your favorite stores, and see what they are selling. Brands like Forever21, Hollister and American Eagle often make their own backpacks. If you want to go with something more traditional, check out JanSport or Herschel.

Ask Your Friends

You don’t want to show up to class with the same bag as your BFF. Make sure you and your friends share your research and each choose a different bag. Remember, your backpack is a great way for you to let your personality shine through.

Check for Features

You might like the pattern or color of a backpack, but that doesn’t mean it will suit your needs. Make a list of everything you will need to carry around with you – textbooks, laptop, lunchbag, etc – and then see if the bag has enough pockets. Some bags have special features like a padded spot for your laptop or a pocket for your cellphone.

No, never. Except for this once time, I took pictures of myself in different coffins so I could ask my friends which one looked best on me... not sure that's the same thing though.

Do you have issues at school with dress code? Well, rules are rules but outside of school express yourself and whatever you feel works, wear it. If high heels and earrings are your thing then go for it. If crop tops and butt shorts describe your personality than let it be known. Guys judge and so do some Ladies but express "You!" Be yourself and don't let anyone else tell you who you are or who you have to be. I can't express to all of you how much fashion and popularity have come together these days, clothing lines have gone so far up that the personality of a person can be known by what they're wearing.
