Back to School, Back to Reality

School may be out for summer but this is the perfect time to get ready for a smart return in September. We’ve rounded up some of our favourite, and most durable bags to get your children off to a flying start for the next academic year! 

Creative & Cute

A big favourite for teens, our Winking Owl Crossbody Bag in Blue is a great choice for fitting all those back-to-school essentials in, whilst looking cool and being super cute all at once. Crossbody bags provide a really comfortable wearing experience so your youngster will feel as good as they look!

Puppy Love or Feline Fan?

Is your child a big fan of dogs? This is the perfect smaller sized bag for them. The Max Handbag with Danny Dog Motif in Dark Blue will help a junior schooler feel grown up and organised whilst keeping all their must-haves safely together. 


And if they prefer cats? Well don’t worry as we also have the gorgeous Normal Handbag with Cat Motif to satisfy feline fans!  

Sixth Form Fashion

 Mature teens want school bags that look and are fashion-forward as well as functional and we’ve got great options for them. The Marcella Cosmo Handbag is a bestseller of ours. Bold and chic, it’s perfect for a young woman who loves that pop of colour. 


It’s also available in a more neutral colourway – Pink – for those who prefer a subtler tone, and this one is guaranteed to go with any outfit!

If a simple but professional looking black bag is more appropriate for school or college, then the Naple Cosmo City Handbag in Black is another hero product from our Back to School range! Hard-wearing yet stylish, earn serious parent points by treating your daughter to this one!

Backpack Beauties

Who doesn’t love a backpack for school? Leaving both hands free, these are popular with young people of all ages and we’ve got a wide selection to suit different personalities and fashion preferences!

An Aztec print is timeless and our Serena Aztec Large Print Backpack is a big hit amongst our rucksack options. But wait, it gets better! Down from £19.99, we’re currently selling this stunner for just £9.99 so mums on a budget – we’ve got your back too! 

Got a youngster who is a masterchef in the making? Our Biba Dog Cupcake Backpack in Grey will reflect their passion in this fun and usefully roomy rucksack. 

Don’t forget, if you’ve never bought from SwankySwans, you can use 15OFF at checkout to get a massive 15% off your first order and any spend over £20 means you’ll also get yourself free delivery and a scarf (for mum perhaps?).
