The 90s era is back with a bang for the upcoming Fall 2013 season – not only does it apply to the clothes you’ll be seeing everywhere (think grunge – plaid, ripped denim and clashing stripes) but also, the accessories. The backpack has been given a revamped look for the season ahead and many stars have already picked up on the trend, including British model Cara Delevingne who is rarely seen without one. The ultimate 90s look has to be a black leather backpack, as seen on the likes of Ashley Olsen who created one for her own label.

There are plenty of other ways to work in the look, just replace your usual handbag with a pretty printed design or a relaxed canvas backpack that will prove itself to be both stylish and also very functional for a long time to come. No longer just for school girls, the backpack will be all over the streets when the upcoming Fashion Week kicks off and is likely to be spotted on all of the most stylish backs for the season ahead. Make like Cara and go for a timeless piece that will still look good no matter what the occasion – she rocks hers for both night and day and makes it work. Her sister Poppy is also a clear fan of the look and was even spotted carrying one along to a Fashion Week event last season.
