For all you ladies heading back to campus soon we have a chic little list of our favorite campus carryalls, so you can trek your books across campus in style. When you’re dashing off to classes you’ll need a bag that will provide style, functionality and durability. There are tons of chic carryall options to get excited about this season, you can go with an oversized summer tote, a roomy satchel or a casual yet stylish backpack. To help you make your decision we have our list of handbag styles that we think are school approved for the style conscious smarty pants that you are.

A large roomy satchel is a great option for a busy student. They typically have plenty of pockets for little school necessities and deep inner portions for those heavy books.  This season we are loving leather satchels with a hint of neon. We’re also loving printed satchels because they go so well we black-on-black outfits, so if you ever find yourself in a fashion pinch when running late for class just go for a black-on-black ensemble and grab your printed satchel for a little hint of color and style.

Obviously backpacks are the quintessential school bag, but this season we aren’t talking about your typical backpacks.  Lush leather, smooth suede and fun prints are adorning some of our favorite stylish backpacks. When it comes to rocking your backpack at school any outfit you choose will probably be fine, be we really love the look of a chic little backpack with simple cuffed jeans and a designer t-shirt.

Oversized totes are such versatile bags for you collegiate Chicistas, they can go from gym to class to work and back again. We are very fond of metallic totes as well as totes with chic clear accents like clear straps or side panels. Rest assured your oversized tote will look great with anything from casual printed dresses to high waisted shorts and a tank top.
