These functional messenger bags are a fantastic mix between fashion and utility. As the back-to-school season approaches, students and workers alike are looking for a new way to carry notebooks, laptops and textbooks. Messenger bags cross over the body and allow for freedom of the arms, hands and body -- meaning that they are the ultimate in school accessories.

Better than the backpack (which takes up unnecessary space sticking out from the back and can be hard to manoeuvre in crowds), these functional messenger bags only take up minimal space along your side and conveniently allow you to access the contents of your bag at a moment's notice.

Get ready for school with these handy totes.
