15 Majorly Cute Backpacks Under $50? Yes, Please!

Backpacks aren't just for high schoolers anymore.

By Courtney Thompson

We’ve said it before—the '90s are back in a big way. While you might be a little uneasy about embracing chokers or dressing head-to-toe in velvet, the backpack is something we can all get on board with. And we’re not talking about the back-to-school variety. Designers from Burberry to Target are scrambling to offer fashionable backpacks to the masses this fall, and rightly so. Has there ever been a more functional bag?

As a mom to three little ones, I need a vessel that can hold sippy cups, pull-ups, and everything in between—but I’ve never met a diaper bag that I actually liked. That’s why I’m so overjoyed by the reemergence of the backpack. I can use it as a purse for me and as a trough for all my toddler’s necessities, and my hands are free and my shoulder’s not aching from lugging around a 20-pound handbag. I’ve rounded up some of the cutest (and CHEAPEST!) options available online right now, so whether you're looking for something structured or slouchy, sedate or look-at-me-now!-loud, we've got you covered. The best part? Each one is as pretty as it is practical.
