Whitney Port champions backpacks

Whitney Port is urging fans to join her on the "backpack bandwagon".

The fabulous fashionista has always been known for her effortless style and laidback look.

Now it seems like the practical rucksack has made it onto her fashion radar.

"Once you graduate high school and college, there are only a few instances in a woman's style life when backpacks seem appropriate," she admitted on her blog.

"Having never let go of loving the backpack (hello, full use of both arms), I am really excited to see that backpacks might be the new It back for spring... Click through the gallery to see some of my favorites, and join me on the backpack bandwagon. (sic)"

The gallery includes everything from cool, studded designs to bright, floral offerings.

The former The Hills star is most excited about the vast amount of types on offer, ranging from sports brands, to high-end fashion house designs.

"There are tons of styles to choose from for spring '13, ranging from sporty varieties, like Vans, Victoria's Secret and Kipling, to more fashion-focused like Chanel," she listed.

It-girls Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are partially responsible for the backpack comeback.

The famous twins recently produced limited edition rucksacks for their label The Row, which are made of Nile crocodile leather and retail at an amazing $55,000.
