Ask any well-traveled girl for advice on how to prep for a fun trip and they’ll most likely tell you to bring a no-fuss carryall—preferably not too big so it doesn’t slow you down, but not too small either so it still has enough space to fit all your essentials. Confused? Well, a quick look at the stars’ Instagram pages will reveal exactly what it is you should be looking for: Backpacks!
Sturdy, chic, and ever-so-reliable, knapsacks are officially the celebrities’ ultimate travel must-have. But FYI, we’re not talking about the same ones you used to carry on your back when you were still in grade school. Typically in (although not limited to) leather, the updated version of this classic favorite now comes in many different colors and designs, and they're guaranteed to up your street style game as you prance around the streets of Paris, Japan, or wherever it is you’re heading to next.
