I LOVE my Prada backpack. 

It's no secret that the concept of "back-to-school shopping" is typically marketed towards children and their parents. But here's the catch: Adults go back to school, too! Really! And when they do, they need some sort of bag in which to comfortably carry their books, a laptop, and maybe even a colorful eraser (or five). 

Unfortunately, shopping for a functional yet chic backpack can be tricky; they're either too sporty, too decked out in "Despicable Me" imagery or way too small. Sorry, but that little Prada backpack that's dripping in '90s nostalgia just won't cut it in college. 

So we've done the homework (get it?) for you. Below, you'll find 21 backpacks that are guaranteed to get you through the school year in style. They may not be able to stop you from snoozing through your alarm, but you'll at least look good while you're running into class late.
