I’d like to blame the 90s revival trend for making backpacks “in vogue” again, but honestly I’m not complaining about it. As someone who once rocked those fuzzy stuffed animal knapsacks like fictional fashion icon Cher Horowitz in the movie Clueless and even a Sesame Street themed nylon backpack that was one of my first ever purchases from a Delia*s catalog circa 1997, I love that backpacks are once again back in style and even found myself to be rocking a cute Fjällräven or LeSportSac x JOYRICH number every now and then.

To help you get a start on your summer shopping list and make sure you remember to add this must-have item for the season (perfect for rocking both the 90s revival and the athletic wear trends), be sure to check out 21 fail-proof options in the slideshow above.
