Gucci’s accessories are the most iconic fashion investments for any woman right now, from Gucci bags to belts. What’s even hotter, however, is an accessory item that less than five years ago was quite underrated: Gucci backpacks. Everyone from it-girls to fashion lovers and designers is trying to make backpacks happen again, and we are honestly living for this Clueless-inspired fashion moment.
Let’s dive into a few fashion tips and tricks on how to wear Gucci backpacks in style, before discovering 8 of the best Gucci backpacks worth your every penny!
Best Gucci Backpacks for Women: Contents
Although backpacks were always dubbed as workwear items in the past and were mostly used by international soldiers for their parachutes, things changed for good in 1984, when Prada introduced its iconic nylon sack. Most designers instantly caught up, debuting their own versions of the new it-item.
Gucci, famous for its top-notch leather designs, began featuring soigné and heavily structured backpacks on stage, ultimately elevating the backpack trend from casual wear to a high-end status symbol models were wearing both on the catwalks and down the street, with their best off-duty looks.
Of course, as soon as they made their debut on various mass media in films and TV-series such as “Mean Girls” and “Clueless,” backpacks became more accessible for every single fashion lover around the world, cyclically coming back as the coolest it-item every five years or so.
With the advent of Instagram, inevitably, backpacks (specifically Gucci backpacks) have basically never ceased being the trendiest accessories around, helping us (literally) pack the coolest outfits of the day (and night!).
Two are the good things about our beloved Gucci backpacks, namely that they are a real fashion investment, as their structure and materials are of the highest quality, and, most importantly they fit (almost) any occasion.
Playful yet always on fleek, Gucci backpacks can be worn at the office, at the club, and even at any formal occasion if the dress code is not strictly classified as “white tie” or “black tie” (if there’s a “creative black tie” dress code, you can definitely dare with a Gucci backpack!).
Here you have some suggestions on how to style your Gucci backpack!
Get a Gucci Backpack That Can Do Both
One of the best things regarding backpacks, in general, is that they can mix classic silhouettes with playful vibes, as with Gucci’s Marmont backpack in millennial pink. If you are a “total black” person, we definitely suggest opting for a monochrome Gucci backpack to let your gorgeous total black outfit stand out from the crowd even more, especially if it includes a pair of black, high-waisted skinny jeans, a pair of black sneakers, and a black music band tee.
If your wardrobe is filled with plain white T-shirts, jeans, sneakers, and maybe a denim jacket, that’s perfectly fine! A Gucci backpack will instantly elevate your outfit to its Instagram Influencer-approved counterpart, giving you a whole new #ootd to don at the coolest summer parties.
Gucci’s Dance Floor
Who says one should only carry fancy clutches at the club? Backpacks are roomy, practical, and help your arms move freely in the air, so take your best Nineties-inspired slip dress, a pair of sneakers or slip-ons, and get ready to dance the night away!
Most Gucci backpacks feature either earth-toned hues or detailing, which makes us automatically jump to “hippy, summery looks.” Take a long, floral-printed dress, combine it with a pair of nude-toned sandals and complete the look with a leather Gucci backpack, bringing the festival season everywhere you go.
Off-Duty Models Carry Gucci Backpacks
Laid-back outfits exude high-end, glamorous vibes if you wear them in style, which, translated to its 2010s-inspired version, means that you just have to add a pair of tiny sunglasses and a tiny black backpack to your wardrobe to look fabulously hot!
Last but not least, in other words, carry and treat your Gucci backpack as the outfit’s sole statement piece, and it will make you shine out of gratitude!
