You don’t need a full class schedule to have an excuse to jump on fall’s hottest handbag trend — leather backpacks. Whether you’re looking for a more fashionable alternative to that ratty tote you’ve been taking to lectures or just want to relive your school days in a more fashion-forward take on your everyday work bag, leather backpacks are convenient, versatile, and way more luxe than your old canvas Jansport! 

Coach is known for its classic leather goods, so it’s no wonder they’ve created an upscale take on the backpack to add to the collection of hobos, satchels, and wristlets. Combine two trends in one with this convertible Khirma Eliazov bucket bag with backpack straps, which can take you from class or work to a party in a cinch! 

I also love this Sabina leather backpack, which is made from the softest leather and has plenty of zip pockets for all your loot! And don’t forget the Tylie Malibu Bender bag, which adds studded hardware to edge up the classic shape.

While clear accessories haven’t always had the best reputation in the past (unflattering plastic ponchos and lucite heels are most prominently coming to mind), the new wave of clear jewelry and accessories is anything but cheap or tacky. Clear, which has been popping up in watches, necklaces, sunglasses, shoes, and more, is great because it’s versatile — it’s not too fancy, but not too casual either, and the way it reflects the sun and sparkles without looking like full-on bling is pretty without overdoing it. More modern than white accessories yet a little more toned-down than bold brights, clear is a hot way to cool down as fall arrives! 

Beat the late-summer rays with a pair of clear-framed glasses from Hobo International, or swap your jeweled bib necklaces for more understated clear beads. Also, while jelly sandals may have been stylish for summer, go for a similar look that’s more fall-friendly with these see-through ballerina flats from Michael Kors!
