20 beautiful and practical rucksacks and backpacks

Forget everything you know about backpacks. Whatever you might have previously thought about them (they're juvenile, not chic etc), you were wrong.

Over the past few years, they've come into their own as a staple for any wardrobe, and not just a flash in the fashion pan.

Not only are they incredibly practical but they also protect you from the dreaded shoulder pain. AND you can even fit more in them than in your small tote. See, struggling to see why you don't like them now, right?

Without further ado, allow us to introduce to you the coolest, chicest and most exquisite backpacks that you need in your life this autumn.
