It’s August, which is the month version of Sunday because September and the start of the school year are right around the corner. This means it’s time for back-to-school shopping, including a new backpack that’s on-trend for fall. If you’re torn between choosing a backpack to suit a fancy lady or one of Rihanna’s furry knapsacks, maybe it’s a good time to turn to some hard data to decide which bag is right for you.

According to data from Polyvore, the online shopping hub, the bag style that everyone’s buying right now is a mini backpack. So you better hope your teachers don’t give you too many books to carry.

If you’re ready to get shopping, here are eight awesome mini backpacks that will make you feel like Cher Horowitz.
