Whether you’re heading back to school in the fall or just need a cute way to tote your essentials around, these 90s acid wash backpacks from Topshop are the perfect fit. We love the colorful dip-dye ombre effect and the fact that they’re less than $100 a pop! Which one is your favorite?

German brand Ethel Vaughn‘s lookbook for their fall 2011 menswear collection may not exactly be an actual great outdoors adventure, but we gotta say we dig it nonetheless. Aside from the overall killer 90s meets wilderness boy vibe they’ve got going on, we are really loving all the cool denim duds styled into the mix. Easy to wear chambray shirts layered under denim jackets and sweaters with cool patchwork details look cool with loose fit jeans and cords (totally 90s). But our absolute favorite is definitely an ultra-rad boxy denim tee. Check out the full lookbook bellow!

April77 is a French unisex sportswear line with an emphasis on cotton corduroy, open end denim, oxford, cotton twill, and gabardine. While you may think pop-colors and acid wash when the ’90s come into mind, their fall 2011 collection tells a different kind of story: one more along the lines of grunge rock’n'roll and oversized button-up shirts. Cuffed straight-leg jeans, dark washes, and worn-in denim jackets are some of the gems you’ll find in this line. They’ll ship the US and their styles include muted colors, skinny fits, raw denim, and Japanese selvedge. Prices range from around $100 to $200.
