Bicycles & Backpacks
The back to
school college, university necessities.
Being a student is naturally stressful, especially if you move away from home. There are contracts you must honour, bills you must pay and books you must read. Financial planning is a new untutored lesson you must endure and friendships need to be formed and rekindled.
However, it does not all have to be hard work, your new term wardrobe can be stylish, affordable and easy. Bicycles and backpacks are, and have been, the most conventional pieces in ‘the student lifestyle’ since before I can even remember. This is because they bring about ease and comfort. If you live near by your university or college you needn’t worry too much about a bicycle, but for those who are slightly farther away, a bicycle will save you money on transport and even a gym membership (exercise is a necessisity while studying). A backpack is a necessity for students, they are spacious, at least some are, and they cater for all needs. And most importantly they give equal balance between shoulders, thus supporting the back.
Now bicycles and backpacks can play a huge part in you term time wardrobe. Not only are the beneficial in that they can save you money or support you health-wise, they are being made more and more stylish to fit any fashion/style genre.
The floral Vintage-Girly and the floral Vintage-Girly
This is just the cutest pair, you would stand out from a mile away. The light colours bring an element of peacefulness with this. This Vintage style bicycle is perfect for city students. The tyres are of a hybrid nature, so ease is of the essence and this mi-pac backpack is just wonderful. mi-pac have a wide range of styles so if your’e not too into the floral prints why not check out their collection @ Mybag.com
The Foldable and the Spacious
This ensemble brings perfect ease for either gender, with a foldable bicycle you can go almost anywhere (anywhere except swimming!) and with a comfy spacious, yet strikingly stylish backpack journeys to and from your home town, to class or to work are made beautifully easy. I am sure some of you may not be too into the tangerine colour, so you would be pleased to know the foldable bikes are not limited to this colour. Check out Asos.com for this bag!
The mountain bike, and the studded backpack
The mountain bike is excellent for anyone who might have to travel through a park or places with uneven grounding. This sturdy bike (not specifically this one) can be spiked up with a studded bag. This bag is very unique, The zip through the front has a pleasing look, however, it may not be you safest option; so bare that in mind.. studs are still cool tho’.
DIY TIP: why not try a apply studs to your bicycle frame to give it a new edgy unique look. I have come across any studded bicycles as of yet. Be the first!
Or why not try to mix and match various style bags with various styles of bags.
Remember if you love it, you could pull it off!
