With the school year approaching, it’s time to stock up on everyday school essentials and gear. Ensure you’re able to carry everything you need on your travels to and from class with gorgeous bags, organized lunch boxes and more. We’ve got a round-up on some of the best gear for the start of the school year—check them out below.
Great Bags for Everyday Carry
One of the most indispensable tools for students is the humble bag or backpack. Bags should be just as fashionable as utilitarian, and ideally will go with any look. One of our favourite backpacks is the collection of Grainy Pebble Backpacks by Holiday Group. Their gender- and colour-neutral tones go well with anyone and anything. Those looking for something sophisticated and classy will enjoy this buckled backpack by David Jones.
For those days when you don’t have too much to carry, switch things up with a roomy tote. Totes have a more casual look but remain ideal for those with some serious studying to do on-the-go. We love the Bellazza tote bag collection that have a grown-up, top-of-the-class look. The David Jones tote is perfect for rushing from class to weekend holiday, pulling double-duty no matter where and how you plan to spend your time this school year.
Packing Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner On-the-Go
Whether you’re packing a lunch or an entire day’s worth of meals, you’ll need good food storage or a lunchbox to ensure your meal stays fresh and mess-free throughout the day. The Fuel Tropical Lunch Accessories by Trudeau is a great way to carry a homemade parfait for breakfast and supports the on-the-go lifestyle that students are well-accustomed to. We love the Trudeau Bento Lunch Box, which lets you carry an entire meal with ease. A simpler, less flashy bento is the On-the-Go Bento Box by Kilo.
Don’t forget school gear for carrying drinks. Stay awake by carrying your morning coffee in these cute “Good to Go” travel mugs. Up for some fresh-pressed juice? Carry it in these beautiful Danesco Soma bottles.
Other Accessories for Student Life
If you walk to school or your campus is large, it’s essential that you have an umbrella to stay dry. We love the Knirps reversible umbrella collection for its respect of form and function. Those always on-the-go should pack a compact mirror for quick touch-ups; the compact by Danielle Creations is a wonderful example. Finally, whether you’re keeping up with gossip via text or capturing memories to share later, keep a good grip on your phone with a popsocket.
