Is the Backpack the New Handbag?

Published January 29th, 2021 by Amaya Hamilton

While out and about recently, it came to my attention the significant amount of women wearing backpacks in place of their everyday handbag. Backpacks have become progressively popular lately. According to an article by Today, millennials are replacing their everyday handbags with a backpack. Should you consider wearing a backpack instead of a handbag? Let me help you decide by emphasizing the amazing qualities of a backpack.


The one distinct difference between a backpack and a handbag is that a backpack has two straps so you can carry it on your back effortlessly. This feature makes a hands-free experience possible. If you are heading to work with a coffee in one hand and your handbag in the other, it can sometimes be difficult to grab any additional belongings because you don’t have that extra hand available. There is absolutely nothing better than browsing in your favorite store without having to worry about carrying your handbag. You want to ensure both of your hands are free for analyzing which products to buy next! 


Another great quality of the backpack is the functionality of these bags. For example, these convertible backpacks are adjustable and can completely transform into a handbag. Who doesn’t love a 2-in-1 bag? One day you can wear it as a backpack and the next day you can wear it as a handbag. Backpacks allow you to navigate from the office to the gym without a hitch.


Much like average sized handbags, backpacks are often roomy enough to carry all your necessities. If you are using them for work, they are perfect for holding your laptop, notebook, and writing utensils. If you are using it as an everyday bag you can easily access your keys, phone, and wallet. The multiple compartments incorporated in the backpacks can help you organize your personal items. 

All in all, these qualities of backpacks are very similar to handbags yet different in their own unique way. You can’t go wrong with either one! In the end, it’s all about what you prefer.
