The backpack is an iconic outdoor essential that dates back to the 1950s. As a functional piece, the backpack is ideal for storing cameras, books and even a cute, handheld umbrella. Today, you have multiple options that take your backpack beyond functional to fabulous. Try a vintage inspired backpack and choose weathered looks. The grunge look is synonymous with the 90's, and a denim backpack moves the look forward for hipster flair. Want a backpack on trend and photo shoot worthy for a Tumblr blog? Then try the 90s inspired bucket style drawstring backpacks. Choose a backpack with fringe tassels for a note of bohemian style.
