Way back in high school, I remembered the trendiest bag to have was one of those Country Road duffle bags made of canvas. I never succumbed to the trend mostly because I thought it was impractical to be carrying around a duffle filled with schoolbooks and pens. They came in different colours and patterns and it wasn't just us girls using these. Boys had them over their shoulders too. I am not sure if these are even trendy anymore since they peaked around 2008-2009 in school grounds.
As a uni student, I have seen many girls carry Michael Kors totes but many women carry around Michael Kors Selma satchels too (which I'll give props to that because they're in good taste). If not Michael Kors, Longchamp's Le Pliage is the second most prominent.
There has been a surge in shoulder/cross-body bags, which has always been my preferred type of bag for going out casually.
Finally, there's the backpack. Perhaps not the best choice if you're already out of school but it's the best choice to carry out your lab coat, laptop and books.
