What are some good bags to take my books, materials, etc. in for school. I have a lot of stuff so it needs to be big. :P I want something cuter than a basic Jansport backpack like everybody else?
What type of bags are good for school and roomy enough, and what are some good brands?

I had a Kipling backpack that lasted me a good two years. This year I bought a pink backpack from the Nike store and it was very roomy especially for my course-load because I had to bring a lot of textbooks home.

PacSun usually has a lot of nice, roomy, cute backpacks (a LOT nicer than Jansport backpacks!) that last quite some time. I’ve always bought my backpack from there in elementary and middle school. Nike or any sports brands will do, too.

agreed, pacsun has some awesome backpacks. i also like harajuku lovers or le sport sac bags, just because they come so big and can hold tons of stuff!

I love the Coach Poppy Backpack

Another awesome bag, that isn’t neccesarily a backpack is this one by Forever 21 which is actually a pretty good size if you look at the measurements.

A few more places to look: eBay, Forever 21, Zara, Thrift, H&M, Target, and boutiques and designer stores (Coach, LV, so on and so on.)

Hope that helped!

Uhh, I’ve been making my own bags actually! I just use totes and messenger bags; they’re probably the easiest kinds of bags to make and one of the most customizable too! :)

Though at my college, I’ve seen girls use designers purses to carry their things… It looks weird to me, but I guess that’s their thing…

i see a lot of girls wearing longchamp bags (just the vinyl-y looking ones) for books. but like everyone has said, pacsun has some good backpacks, so does tillys. i wouldn’t really recommend carrying a lot of stuff in a messenger bag or anything that’s one strapped, it’ll hurt your back/shoulder.

I personally really do not like backpacks, maybe you could try a satchel of some sort? They’re cute and scholarly, and if the right size, can hold a decent amount of books. Also, if you have a good enough hunt in some vintage stores, you could find one rather cheaply, but Urban Outfitters have a good range of them.

If not, there’s always duffle bags, they’re just like backpacks, but cuter :)

i really don’t like backpacks because they’re uncomfortable with my outfits usually and make my shirts rise up or something like that.

i used a bag from express that was really big! it was also on sale and only $10 :) you might want to check them out. thrift stores also tend to have really big bags as well as macy’s

I usually go with messenger bags. They’re more appealing and don’t look as awkward with my outfits.

have you girls found backpacks to be a must for college? i’m worried a tote or something with one strap will make everything feel too heavy, and i have some long walks between classes!

i always used regular bags, i mean.. you walk some halways and sit down, walk some halways and sit down. doesn’t need to be that comfy right? it just has to be able to carry the load.

last year i used my longchamps bag and it carried literally everything i needed. sometimes it was hard carrying so many things on one shoulder and made my arm sore. northface backpacks are really good and very roomy

A Birkin from Hermès. That’s what I’m going to buy for my 2nd year in college anyway.

The Alexa bag from Mulberry is also beautiful and handy.

The Satchel from Proenza Schouler.
