1. Rectangular animal print tote bag
This orange tote bag looks simple and plain at first glance but actually has a lot of detail added with the animal print. Wide enough to fit any uni student’s essentials which is their laptop, this tote bag can be carried on your shoulder to help you go hands-free as you go about your day or can be held in your hand with the top handle which gives the back some versatility and more detail. The shoulder strap is even detachable if you wanted to just go for the top-handle look. It comes with a removable inner bag with a zip closure so you can keep all your bits and bobs in the mini pouch instead of it all just laying at the bottom of the bag, the fact that it’s removable makes it even handier. The orange colour is sure to add a pop of colour to any outfit and the gold hardware finish keeps to the warm tones of the bag.

3. Black backpack
The black backpack is definitely a classic school and uni bag and it is not hard to see why. A backpack is ultra handy as it keeps your hands free, is always secure on your back so you don’t have to worry about it fall off your shoulders all the time unlike shoulder bags and is just more comfortable to carry as all the weight of the bag is evenly distributed along your back. Backpacks also tend to come in a lot more larger sizes than things like tote bags or shoulder bags which means it’s easier to fit more in. They’re for sure more heavy duty uni bags (depending on which you get) as you can really get a lot of stuff in there so it’s great if you’re planning a full day out in and around uni. The black colour means it can go with any outfit, no matter what clothes you throw on. This particular backpack from Topshop has an exterior compartment so you can easily take our your essentials without having to rummage through the whole bag, it also has a top handle so you can easily grab it and adjustable straps so you can get it to the perfect length that’s the most comfortable for you making it one of the best practical bags.
