Handbags will always be the go-to when fashionistas think about a safe spot to store their loot, but after spotting the fashion forward Rihanna rocking a sweet acid wash denim backpack while traveling in Japan this weekend, we are starting to think about going hands-free.
The old school yard favorites have definitely gotten a new spin in the current years, from leopard prints to funky high fashion embellishments, a good napsack is something that is quickly making its way from the hiking trails to the runways.
Just think about the perks of having your hands freed up to do all sorts of things like, say, shop for more bags. The backpack possibilities are endless, and with the new designs cropping up, the possibilities are also fashionable.
Brands from the old favorite Jansport, to higher end Diane Von Furstenberg have all put their modern rendition on the basic backpack - so there is sure to be one to suit every personality.
Trendspotting on Rihanna has never failed us, so take a look at some potential back-candy in the gallery above for every price range.
