The purse is a staple that no woman can live without. Each stylish satchel contains an abyss of everything from your phone and wallet to those loose Advil tablets from the aftermath of last month’s big night out. The glaring downside to this universal accessory is the fact that you have to sling it over your shoulder and hold it there all day long. Enter the backpack. Long considered a dead giveaway for tourists and students, the backpack is making a fashion statement in 2013.

We go crazy for trends that combine fashion and functionality, and not just because they’re few and far between. The backpack is an accessory that literally gives you back the full use of both arms. Whether you’re walking from your car to the office or headed to the mall with your friends, there is a backpack to fit your need and taste. Here are a few of our favorites (by style profile, of course).

Boho Glam

Bags with fun details or a cultural flair are perfect for boho girls. We love this fringe bag because it adds a chic hippy vibe to any outfit.

Classic with a Twist

You’re girly and chic, and your handbag is your favorite accessory. You can still rock the backpack ;). Choose a bag with clean lines that won’t clash with the feminine details of your favorite dress of top.

It Girl

Bold colors add a fun focal point for your color-loving soul. Try one that adds a bright punch to your neutral duds or match it to your favorite bright accessories.

Your style is classic and the bag you splurged on years ago still looks great with your updated wardrobe. Choose a backpack that has the same staying power as your personal style and go hands free for good.
