Yes, they are here to stay. And I have to say, I am currently loving this trend.

But to do it frugally? It’s quite tricky, this is far more an elegant leather piece as opposed to a Jansport version. On my wishlist? The leopard print Jerome Dreyfuss one or the white punctured leather style by Elizabeth & James.

How to style it…
Dress it down. A cool shirt and jeans would look great allowing your accessory to do the talking. Look for expensive details on your backpack, such as perforated leather, mock-croc effect and cool zips for style kudos.
