With colleges reopening, one essential thing that you need to check off your list is a college bag. A funky bag that matches most of your cool clothes is a must-have for every college student. Not only should a college bag be functional with ample storage space, it should also go well with your clothes and make you look stylish.

You have ample opportunities to choose from a wide variety of bags, from jholas, potlis, sling bags, carry purses, backpacks, clutch purses, bucket bags, hobo bags, shoulder bags, the list goes on... While boys only have backpacks, book bags or sling bags to choose from, girls are spoilt for choice.

Bags can accommodate everything from money to water bottles, umbrellas, laptops, tablets, eatables, deodorant, stationery, registers, books, earphones, gym wear and mobile phones.

The best places to buy bags that are in vogue are—

Janpath - Price range- Rs. 200 to Rs. 800
Gaffar market - Price range- Rs. 300 to Rs. 1,000
If you can stretch your budget above Rs. 1,000, then you can try out brands such as Adidas, Nike or Puma.

Stay away from gaudy or tacky looking bags to avoid being labelled a complete fashion disaster. Look for bags in fresh colours like blue, yellow, grey, etc. Better still, go in for multicoloured jholas that would go with every dress. And to add to that funky look, attach some cool keychains to them. And remember to carry large bags instead of small ones.
