Check out our personal list of backpack essentials and find out how you can get them too- so you can go back to school in style.
It’s officially our favorite time of year: Back to school shopping season! Yeah, we know what you’re thinking, “ugh, as if.” But seriously, after looking at these trendy backpack essentials, you’ll want to get back to class ASAP!
1. Your #1: The Backpack
Our ideal backpack is sleek and versatile. We need a bag that’ll go with everything, so we don’t have to plan our outfits around it. This Marc Jacobs Women’s Biker backpack in Midnight Blue is definitely trendy, but simple enough that it’ll never clash with our outfits.
2. Keep Your Notes in One (Classic) Place
We’ve all been using Five Star notebooks our entire academic career. Why? Well, that’s simple-the quality of this paper is impeccable.

3. Plan it Out
We like this planner because we’re writers (duh) and having the words ‘Field Notes’ plastered on the front makes us feel like real journalists. But, even if you’re not a writer, you can’t go wrong with this minimalistic design.
4. Stay Hydrated
S’well water bottles are something special. We can leave our dorm at 8 A.M. and our water miraculously stays cold until we drag ourselves back through the door at 8 P.M. And, for you hot coffee addicts, S’well water bottles keep liquids warm for up to 12 hours!
5. Your Right Hand Man
If anything ever happened to our Mac Books, our lives would be over. Yeah, that’s how essential they are. A small investment in a case probably wouldn’t hurt either.
6. Your Left Hand Man
We hate to see a shattered iPhone screen. So, keep yours protected with this lovely polka dot case by Society 6! It’s just the right combination of practical and fashionable.
7. For Your Plastic
Not only is this wallet super stylish, but it can also hold your phone! Seriously, there is nothing more annoying than not having pockets or a purse to keep your phone so you have to hold both your wallet and phone in one hand (you know what we’re talking about). Let’s give this one some *snaps* for double iPhone protection.
8. So You Can See the PowerPoint
Let’s be honest, most of us only need glasses for up-close or far away reading. That being said, there is something about these glasses that make us want to wear them full-time.
9. For When the Internet Fails You
Can you tell what these chic little USB drives are made of? They’re wood! Handcrafted wood, to be more exact. Keep this handy tool in your bag to avoid losing all your work. (we’ve all been there).
10. Don’t Get Caught with a Dead Phone
If you’re like us, your phone seems to be in a constant state of dying. But, by carrying this little beauty around, you’ll never have to sit through another lecture phone-less. You’re welcome.
11. Stay Focused
Some of you aren’t a fan of Beats. But, trust us, these matte black wireless headphones are perfect for tuning out everyone on the bus, the library or anywhere else you go!

12. Avoid Getting Locked Out
Repeat after us: hair elastics are not keychains. Become an adult and never lose a key again with this simple gold chain.

13. Stay Smooth
Going through a whole day with chapped lips is both unpleasant and unnecessary. Prevent this by keeping Sephora’s super nourishing lip balm in your backpack.
14. Keep it Together
This star-studded pencil case is sure to compensate for the simplicity of your backpack.
15. Back to Basics
In my opinion, a good pencil is vital to your academic performance. We know that you are probably taking most of your notes on your laptop, but we firmly believe that writing out your notes is essential to learning. Check out these mechanical pencils and let classmates borrow your #2s.
