I am a firm believer that a school bag can be a serious life saver. We all lose our minds a little midway through semesters, but having a good bag, where you can keep all your important stuff, and have a good organization system will at least keep one aspect of your life in check. Today, I wanted to share my top picks for bags that are both functional and stylish. If you’re going to ace a test, or conquer a semester, you should look good while doing it! And if you’re not doing as well as you hoped, at least you’ll look like you know what you’re doing!
Depending on your school level, your ideal bag might differ. For graduate level programs, a briefcase style is probably more ideal. For high school and early college years, a backpack may make your life easier. For college, especially your second half of college, a tote bag might seem more reasonable. Depending on your personality, decide which style is the most realistic and functional for you!
I used a backpack my first year of college, then I switched to a tote style the second semester of my sophomore year. I like the tote style better, as I felt it had easier access on the go. For law school, I recently invested in a leather messenger bag/briefcase style of bag with a laptop spot. Though some of the above bags seem steep in price, I would recommend investing in a really great, sturdy bag early, and keeping it for the years you’re in school. I would also suggest choosing something more traditional or staple, like a leather or a neutral so you don’t get sick of it after a semester or year. I would definitely caution against any seasonal prints!
