The Deal: Backpacks from Zappos

The Lowdown: For some women, admitting to liking the utilitarian backpack is tantamount to confessing one’s secret late-night marathons of “Saved by the Bell.” Or owning up to that anonymous love letter to a college professor. However, these cuter, more updated styles of knapsacks over at Zappos are certainly covet-worthy! The funkier patterns and colors convey smart, practical fashion at its best. And at less than $50, these will make great back-to-school gifts to your nieces or little sisters–and well, yourself.
