The start of the school year is less than a month away, so it’s time to hit the books and ace that Fall 2015 back to school style! 

Known for fun, coordinating prints that are perfect for mixing and matching, Vera Bradley has everything you need for heading back to school in one stop — including backpacks, lunch bags, agendas and lanyards, as well as notebooks and binder clips.

When it comes to stocking up for school, we know that different personalities have different needs. Intellectuals may seek items that are more timeless and practical, while artists and tastemakers want chic, sophisticated trendsetting products to help them stand out. With perfectly planned pockets and compartments to help you stay organized, there’s more to each backpack than what simply meets the eye. So no matter what your style or how much you carry, Vera Bradley has your back with back to school shopping guides to help you find your perfect pack.


One of the most fascinating and colorful personality types is the artist. Artists are open-minded, love to experiment, and approach life in a unique, eccentric way. They have deep wells of beauty and emotion just waiting to burst out in a multitude of channels, like painting, drawing, designing, writing, dancing — or simply creating. Life itself is a work of art, as is nearly everything they own. To them, school supplies feel like a candy store of prints and patterns, and Vera Bradley has more than enough to satisfy their inner artist.

She’s the trendsetter and the queen bee — depicted by the likes of Molly Ringwald’s Claire in The Breakfast Club and Alicia Silverstone’s Cher in Clueless. A shrewd and charming leader, the socialite runs the school’s social scene. She goes after what she wants, but at the same time, gives generously, leads by example, and understands, that when done right, there really is power in numbers. Top of the line accessories will keep her dressed to the nines from head to toe.

This brainiac loves to learn and is usually at the head of the class pioneering new territories for the mind to explore. The intellectual sets the standard for academic achievement, and is usually on the fast track to success. Peers may be a downer at times, but these whiz kids will often get the last laugh – and maybe even change the world while doing so – which makes it even more important to have the right essentials to get there.
