Finish off the summer with a hands free style.

The rucksack’s du jour

Multitasking is all it’s cracked up to be. And as any person going who has ever had to hold something knows, multitasking is much appreciated when it comes to accessories. Enter the chic backpack or to give a more fashionable term, the rucksack.

A sleek and streamlined backpack is the perfect plus one, ideal for summer picnics, late nights on rooftop bars or just a hectic day running between meetings. If it comes with a handy top handle and can be camouflaged as a purse, even better. During late summer when humidity is high and temps are even higher, an uber-sleek version in black with minimal hardware is the way to go.

So whether the rest of your summer calls for a European vacance or just passing the days by pounding the pavement, this is one bag that will allow your hands to be free for any multitasking activity. So please, stroll and selfie. Or speed walk and email. And definitely enjoy subtle way to carry it all.
