Choosing the right bag for school could be difficult .Now that school is back most students in college, or graduate school want to ensure that the bag they choose for the coming year is one that will last, and one that is versatile. I think a nice alternative to the usual back pack for school are totes. So, for those of you having trouble choosing the right bag for your studies here are some tips and some recommendations.
1- Pick a bag that is weather resistant. So that they could be worn in the rain, and not get ruined.
2- Pick a bag that also has a strap for your shoulder. Books could be heavy and carrying them on your shoulder just makes the bag easier to handle.
3- Choose a bag that is a darker color. Choosing a bag that is light is not the best idea, because it can stain easily.
4- Make sure the bag is big enough to fit at least a textbook and a few notebooks. In addition, make sure the main pocket can fit all your supplies.
5- You want to make sure that your bag has a zipper on top. The zipper will ensure that your books don’t get wet when it rains.
6- Quality is really important in a school bag. I would recommend some sort of leather.
7- Extra pockets could never hurt. I love bags that have pockets on the outsides. Simply because they are the perfect places to put your keys, cards, ipods and pens.
Some Designers I would recommend:
1. The Dylan Zip Tote by Linea Pelle. Worn by Lo Bosworth, and Aurdrina Patridge
2. Cole Haan Phoebe Zip Satchel
3. Michael Kors Patent Leather Tote
4. Helen Kaminski “Farah” bag.
