The key to embracing the still-going-strong backpack trend is to disassociate the look from all your grade school memories. Once your mind is clear of pre-conceptions, it becomes obvious that this is the ultimate adult bag. They make great carry-ons, are perfect for festivals or any outing where you want your hands free, and most of them are the perfect size to keep a bottle of wine upright when you're packing a picnic. Plus the versions that designers are rolling out these days are just too cute to let high schoolers have all the fun.
