Kids, gather around and let me tell you about the dark days of my youth, when to be cool you had to sling your backpack on only one shoulder, extra books and cramps be damned. Let us praise the accessories gods, who in their benevolent mercy have seen fit to make backpacks so hip, so of-the-moment this fall that there is virtually no wrong way to wear one. (Though avoid the Baby Bjorn look, that's pushing it.) Whether or not you're heading back to class this month, once a backpack is in your accessories arsenal, you'll wonder how you ever went without one.
