Pink School Bags for Tweens and Teens

Updated on July 27, 2013

Pink School Bags for Tweens and Teens Who Love Pink....

If your daughter loves pink, then a school bag in her favorite color is an easy choice. However, you may find that your options are limited when you shop your local department store or super center. It's nice that e-shopping makes it possible to peruse a greater variety of styles, and colors, and given the importance of a good school bag in helping your daughter to be more organized, it's nice to be able to find styles that may be more conducive to helping your child in the coming year. Upper elementary school tweens will not have near the number of materials to transport, but in the transition to middle school, organizational skills are tested. Middle schoolers must manage many more books, and rotation from classroom to classroom means that locker stops aren't always easy to accomplish. A good backpack or messenger bag makes it easier to keep things together and to be ready for classes.

Deciding on the Best School Bag Selections in Pink - What does your daughter need in a book bag?

There are a few key points to consider with school bag selection. A top priority for a child is often fashion. It's gotta look good and please her. If she loves pink, then there's a wealth of options to consider.

It's gotta hold her school gear. How much space is available and how well constructed is the piece? As you check out some of the options featured here, you'll find that the product pages provide consumer reviews in many cases, helpful for giving you the insight you need.

It needs to be manageable. There are two important areas to consider. Can she carry it? If she has a heavy load of books, will her back suffer under the weight? I love the crossbody messenger as a better choice for weight distribution. Also, can she keep her stuff in order? Some packs are more conducive than others to enhanced organization. Check out the images on product pages to ascertain the number and type of pouches. Messengers are very nice for keeping the piling and stuffing at bay. I highly recommend a messenger for encouraging a disorganized child to keep school things in better order.

Traditional Backpacks in Pink

Colorful School Bags for Tweens and Teens

There are lots of choices in traditional backpack style, when it comes to finding a pink school bag for your tween or teen. Many of the choices are simply pinks, some solid pink school bags, and others pink contrasted with black, or another solid color. For the older student, the use of a favorite color, without extreme embellishment, may be preferred in a mature academic environment.

Jansport is a top name in backpacks and school bags, especially at the collegiate level, but also durable and reliable for middle and high school students. Your tweens and teens can find simple, or decorative school bags from Jansport.

Jansport is also great for college daughter just picked out a Jansport laptop backpack for the coming year in college. You have many options from the brand but you can always count on quality.

K-Cliffs Organizer Outdoor Sports Biking Hiking Backpack / School Bag - Available in Pink, Green, and Black

Multiple pouches in this tween backpack are really helpful for middle school students. Middle school backpacks replace the desk of a self-contained classroom for storing books and materials. A single pouch backpack isn't a great choice in tween school bags because everything ends up shoved into an abyss of supplies. Calculators and pencils get damaged fairly easily in this setup. With varied pouches, you can help your middle school daughter become more organized. It would be nice if organization was intuitive, but this is rare in a middle schooler. Parental help is key to making sure that a tween is able to develop organizational skills that will maker her successful in her secondary school experience.

High Sierra Curve Backpack - In Cerise/Picnic, also available in a number of other color selections.


Normally, I don't recommend curved top bookbags for tweens. However, the wide opening of this High Sierra design makes it more suitable. A wide opening makes it easier for a middle schooler to see what will go into or come out of the book bag. The shoving that happens at this level is characteristically messy and disorganized. Most tweens need some guidance, and tools that make it easier to keep supplies well-sorted are important. This design is really great in that there are several zippered areas. Books and folders will occupy the largest space, homework journals and calculators the middle sized section, and pens and pencils the small front section. This is better for preserving the condition of all materials for the student. Your middle school backpack choice is important because there is so much transition at this point in the educational career.

Pink Backpacks with Decorative, Girly Motifs

Each design featured below is excellent for organizational purposes at the middle school level. Pouches make it easy to organize. Take time to monitor your tween's backpack over time in order to help her stay organized and develop good academic habits.

Many middle school students, girls included, are organizationally challenged at the start of their middle school years. It's a lot to keep track of...books, rotating classes, lockers, gym and buses. This is a time when good organizational tools matter a lot. Pencil boxes, locker organizers and good backpacks can help, but don't forget to provide some one-on-one assistance. A backpack check is great, and it can be a friendly thing. Have your child empty the pack for washing every couple of weeks to ensure that you keep a handle on the grunge that can build up. You'll be able to limit those piles of wadded papers and missed assignments with some personal supervision. While your child is maturing, don't expect her to become organized instantaneously.

Pink Sling-Messenger Backpacks

A recent variation on traditional backpack style, the sling is designed to be carried slung over one shoulder. This is certainly a sensible design, given that this is typically how many kids carry their backpacks, in the first place. I don't like this style as a book bag. However, if your middle school student needs to keep gym clothes handy, this is perfect for holding sneakers and gym clothes.

The sling pack is different, and it's not for everyone. It's more like a purse than a book bag in some cases. You definitely need to examine the dimensions and decide if the piece will hold books. However, this is a fun choice in a setting where books aren't excessive or where small carrying needs are the norm.

You'll love the motifs available in one strap backpacks for girls. There are lots of pretty hues that work for any outing. These are ideal for trips with family, overnighters at a friend's house or a quick trek to the library. Use this as an alternative to a lunch pack. Consider it as a great choice for holding a back to school assortment of locker accessories.

The popularity of this style of bag is surging, but it is still important to realize that your student may have a bigger load than this bag will handle. It's great for complementing her gear, it's ideal for gym clothing, and it's an excellent way to keep personal items separate from the melange of different books, papers and folders. Just keep in mind that measurements matter a great deal on these trendy one strap school bags.

Messenger Style School Bags for Tweens and Teens

Messenger style school bags are a great alternative to backpacks, especially those with long straps that can be worn crossbody style. Rather than weighting down the back, the weight of books and school materials can be distributed to the front of the body, or to the side. I prefer the messenger to the backpack for middle school bags, and I think the organizational style of tween messenger bags is sensible and more intuitive. Designs are varied, meaning that it's easy to find pretty or vibrant colors and motifs.

Pink Messenger School Bags for Tweens and Teens

Messenger bags are my preferred choice for personal book and supply carrying. I put the different bag types to the test a year ago, and crossbody carrying won my loyalty.
