Hands Free: Chic Backpacks for All



As we get closer to September, I’m thinking about a new fall bag. The back to school promotions are everywhere and a backpack is a classic. Whether toting gym clothes, a laptop, magazines, or an extra layer should the temperature shift, backpacks need not be for school kids only. Above are my 8 grown-up picks for fall in sophisticated autumnal colors, high to low, all sporty, all chic!
