Backpacks So Cute You'll Wish You Were Going Back To School
With Labor Day weekend upon us, it's officially back-to-school time! Many have already headed back to the classroom, and those who haven't will be next week. If you're a parent (or a student yourself), there's no doubt that all things school related have been on your mind, from finishing summer homework to shopping for clothes and supplies.
One of the most important items a student needs when starting the new school year is a backpack, which essentially will house each and every thing they bring to class. There are endless options out there: different styles and shapes and patterns, so picking one out can be kind of overwhelming.
To make things a bit easier during this busy time of year, we rounded up 10 of the cutest packs out there. This list includes a mix of bags that both kids and teens will love. And just a warning, you may want 'em too. Read on to see our picks and where to buy them!

Got a girly-girl on your hands? This pink bag with sparkly polka dots, a fluffy pom pom, and gold zipper details will be a perfect fit.
We are kiiind of obsessed with this pink-and-green palm print pack from online art retailer Society6, which just launched backpacks earlier this month. The bags come in the site's most popular designs and are one size fits all, featuring a roomy front pocket and built-in 15-inch laptop pocket.
If your child is a bit of a techy, they'll love this adorable backpack from children's furniture and accessories store The Land of Nod. We love that cute little robot face!
POTTERY BARN KIDS
Rainbows and unicorns? We're sold, and we think your kiddo will be, too. This whimsical-patterned backpack from Pottery Barn Kids comes in a Pre-K size (above) as well as a large size, and there's even an option for personalization with sewn-on lettering.
STATE BAGS X STAR WARS
For any kid who's obsessed with Star Wars, this backpack collection is their dream come true. STATE Bags' latest collaboration features the iconic movie franchise and includes this Darth Vader bag as well as Storm Trooper and R2-D2-inspired designs. Plus, for every STATE bag purchased, the company hand-delivers a fully stocked backpack to a child in need in the U.S., so they're as charitable as they are cute.
STATE BAGS X ROCKETS OF AWESOME
HERSCHEL SUPPLY CO.
At one point or another, a lot of kids (and let's be honest—adults, too!) go through a camo phase. If that's your child's M.O. this year, this bag will be the perfect style for them.
We love the bright, colorful whale pattern of this cute bag from Vineyard Vines. This is another one that comes with the option for custom monogramming, and there is also a lunchbox available in the same pattern!
Having gone through years and years of school ourselves, we can tell you that you can really never go wrong with a classic JanSport. They're durable and sturdy, and they come in just about any color or pattern your kid could hope for!
Target is widely known as a back-to-school paradise of sorts because they have just about everything you could need, including backpacks, of course. We love this simple black-and-white striped one from Bueno.
