3 Back To School Trends to Start the Year Off Right

From shopping for backpacks and totes to coordinating the perfect first day of school outfit, we love the excitement of the back-to-school season! Whether you’re headed to your first day of high school or setting off for your first semester of college, nothing beats the anticipation of wearing the first-day outfit you’ve been saving for weeks. Our daughters especially love breaking out all their new school supplies and organizing everything into their new backpacks — and honestly, we do too! Though back-to-school time is always an exciting time of the year, we’ve got some super cute supplies in at PinkTag to make this year the best one yet! From cheerful, mood-boosting planners and accessories to thoughtfully designed backpacks and totes, PinkTag has everything you and your kids need to start the school season off right.


A new back-to-school backpack is a perfect way to set the mood for the rest of the school year. An essential that travels everywhere with you, a backpack is one of the most important pieces you will purchase this season. At PinkTag, we know that the perfect backpack needs to be equally as stylish as it is functional — that’s why we’ve broken down some of our favorite backpack styles to help you find the look you need to take on the school year with confidence.


For the little ones in your life, a backpack with a sweet print is exactly what they need for the first day of school! Equally cute and functional, our kid’s backpacks will add a cheerful boost to your kid’s back-to-school style. We love the adorable Shake Your Feathers and Mermazing backpacks, especially when paired with a matching lunch box! Your kid will absolutely love picking out their own unique print or mixing and matching to create a style all their own. Made of water-resistant canvas, these backpacks can go anywhere with your kids — even after-school practices and activities. With a large front zipper and side pockets, there are plenty of spaces for them to stash their goodies and favorite back-to-school supplies.


For teachers and college students, our neoprene totes are truly a life-saver. If you’re anything like me and you carry your whole life in your bag, our neoprene totes are exactly what you need to get through the work or school week with ease. Made of flexible and lightweight neoprene fabric, these carry-all totes will hold all your essentials and more! We especially love the sturdy bottom liner, which keeps your tote from falling over no matter how much you pack inside. We’re obsessed with the bold print and vibrant colors of our new Nova Neoprene Tote, but you can’t go wrong with a classic print like the stylish Natalie Neoprene Tote. Our neoprene totes also double as the perfect travel bags for last-minute trips or after-school events — truly, this bag does it all! For ladies who made a resolution to stay organized this school year, our handbag organizers are exactly what you need to keep your tote clutter-free and everything in its place. The pockets are perfect for keeping your pens, highlighters, earbuds, and other school essentials easily within reach during class.


If you’re looking for ways to live a more minimalist lifestyle this school year, investing in an everyday backpack is the perfect start! Stylish and functional, our everyday backpacks are the only bag you’ll need. You can easily go from school to work to girl's night out with our versatile Deidre Backpack. With a removable printed strap and large top zipper, you can easily transition from a trendy backpack for the classroom to a timeless shoulder bag for a night on the town. If you’re jetting off to study abroad or looking for ways to streamline your daily commute, our Everleigh Hunter Backpack will become your favorite travel companion! Sleek and made of durable neoprene fabric, this bag will have you looking sophisticated and organized all year long. We especially love the padded laptop pocket and front zippers, which make finding your essentials a breeze, and the chic design that goes with any outfit.


When it comes to starting the school year off right, the not-so-essentials are just as crucial in setting the right tone for the school year! We love investing in a few cheerful accessories that make tackling homework assignments fun, like the super cute Motivational Pencil Set or Sparkle Gel Ink Pen Set. We especially enjoy stashing a few of these into our girls’ pencil pouches to surprise them on the first day of school! If you’re headed to college, our Be A Gem Laptop Sleeve is sure to add some sparkle to your first day of classes—and be sure to add a cute and colorful keychain to your backpack to liven up your look even more. No back-to-school checklist is complete without the perfect planner. PinkTag has a selection of cute and colorful planners to help you keep track of all those important dates throughout the year — and your kids will love the activity pages and stickers that make checking off their to-do list even more rewarding!


Lastly, don’t forget a new water bottle or travel mug to finish off your back-to-school look. I love staying hydrated with an insulated tumbler, like the Swig Spot On Tumbler, which keeps my water cool all day and fits perfectly in the side pocket of my backpack! You can never have enough travel mugs, especially with all the cute designs from Swig! I can’t get enough of the cheerful Morning Glory Travel Mug this year, but I always keep my Bombshell Travel Mug on repeat for a classically cool look. Lastly, don’t forget to stock up on some reusable straws for an eco-friendly start to the school year.
