You need to up your bag game

It’s that time of the semester where we find ourselves swarmed with deadlines and our bags become less of a fashion statement and more of a necessity in order to haul anthologies, laptops, folders and snacks (lots of snacks) to the library for that inevitable all-nighter.

Luckily, this crowd at the SJ managed to stay stylish even in times of hardship.

Naomi takes the winter floral trend in her stride with this pretty and practical rucksack from PINK by Victoria’s Secret.

Who knew the secret was they make backpacks?

Two strapping is so on trend right now

Third year English student Laura says her black Zara bag is “the perfect size to squeeze in all of my anthologies and my laptop too”.

Practical but stylish at the same time, Laura has cracked the code to looking good at the most stressful time of the semester.

The snake print trend is going absolutely nowhere, and Law student Kyran shows us exactly why.

The expandable sides mean this bag is not only stunning, but adapts to the amount of books she needs throughout the year.

All those contract Law textbooks will feel out of place in this beauty.

Law Student Beckie’s tote adds a twist to the classic black bag with some mock-croc detailing. Perfect for holding all those deadline week essentials and looking fabulous at the same time.

It is big and bold, definitely shows the library crowd why black is best.

Daisy takes on oxblood, the colour of the season and the English student nails it.

Not only is this bag super stylish, but the shoulder strap means it’s easy to carry all those heavy books up to silent study without spraining her wrist from the weight.

Cristina says she likes her bags like she likes like her men: big and expensive.

Forget about living on a student budget, with a bag this amazing who cares if it breaks the bank? Combining two classic trends, patent leather and quilting, Cristina can do no wrong.

There is no denying Marc looks hot on her arm – Marc Jacobs that is

Mock-croc wins again, this time it’s on the arm of nursing student Hannah whose River Island beauty brings a bit of glamour to the SJ.

Who needs a £40,000 Birkin when we can save both an alligator and £39,970?

History and English student Rachel is killing it with this seatbelt-strap JanSport bag.

It’s big enough to fit all of her library supplies and bright enough to spot when she forgets which desk she was using after a sneaky coffee break.

Orange you glad your bag’s big enough to hold your laptop?
