Valextra leather backpacks, $3,750 each. Image: Valextra
Much as we do love our carryall totes and shoulder bags, these do put a lot of weight on one shoulder; especially when we have that bad “bag lady” habit of bringing with us anything and everything in that one single bag.
The solution: To tote a backpack that’s actually stylish, sturdy and work-appropriate, so that it doesn’t look like a relic from your school-going days. Some of these chic bags even come with multi-way straps, so that you can wear it as a backpack or crossbody bag too!
