Maybe you're the gal who totes around gigantic, oversized satchels every day. Perhaps you throw everything into your bookbag and only use purses when absolutely necessary. Either way, the new luxe look to consider is the bucket backpack. 

Scratching your head on this one? Sure, nylon drawstring backpacks may be the first thing to come to mind, and they are handy for throwing your sneakers in to lug to your kickball game. Think about that functionality with a whole bunch of added style. These bags have some similarities but are sleeker and chic-er version of those carryalls. Shiny hardware, bright colors, flaps, and tassels are all used to up the stylishness of these backpacks.

The Row popularized this look but their prices gave us heart palpitations. These days, there are still plenty of options if you want to drop serious dough, but it won't be long until you can scout out ultra-affordable ones at your favorite stores (see the UO one, above!).
