When you hear the word backpack you would be forgiven for conjuring images of awkward teens waiting for the school bus or primary school kids with a teddy bear strapped to their back. Now with brands like Burberry and Chanel paying homage to the archive style, the backpack has been revived and it's fast becoming the new must-have accessory. But this trend isn't just a novelty or a fashion fad, for mothers everywhere backpacks are a complete godsend. Here's why...
1. They're Practically Perfect
The classic backpack silhouette means a spacious internal you can actually see inside is standard. With perfectly placed pockets designated for all your mummy needs including up to 4 bottle holders for hydration on the go, the backpack is far more practical than most styles. And because you're hands-free you can indulge in the luxury of the use of both hands‚ something which becomes a rarity when you're pushing a pram AND tensing your arm to keep your shoulder bag on your shoulder AND holding the hand of your little one who has just learnt how fun it is to run everywhere. They're stroller friendly too. Although buggy clips are available at check-out, most backpacks can be hung over buggy handles using their straps too.
2. You Can Flaunt Your Fashion Identity
Yes, they're a super practical changing bag, but practical doesn't have to be ugly. All too often women feel they lose their own identity when they have a child. They feel pigeonholed to be just a mother‚ with their name permanently changed to Jasper's mum. That's why the founder of KeriKit and fellow mum of three Keri Jamieson designs beautiful changing bags which find beauty in the organisation. Each fashion-forward design allows the modern mother to flaunt her personality and feel fabulous without ever compromising on functionality, so she can remain effortlessly organised whilst raising the next generation in style.
