Dreaming of escaping to a cute little cottage tucked away somewhere in the countryside, surrounded by plants and gardens? Then the cottagecore aesthetic might just be your vibe. And, while you might not actually be able to make it there right now, you can channel that cottagecore energy by wearing cheery floral prints as much as possible. To kick-start your floral fan-girling, we’ve compiled a list of JanSport’s most cottagecore-ready backpacks—and we even have some suggestions on what to wear with them to make the pretty prints truly pop. 

Whether you’re walking through an enchanted garden or just into class, you can carry a little bit of that magical daydream with you. Here are some of the quaintest and most charming floral cottagecore backpacks.

Garden Fresh

With pretty blue and pink flowers set against a cream backdrop, the floral pattern of the Garden Patch Right Pack is super versatile. It goes with any light-hued top and jeans, but if you want to go full cottagecore, you can also pair it with a floral print dress.

Bright Blooms

Vibrant yellow and punchy primary-hued blooms punctuate the Local Blooms Right Pack. Perfect if your cottagecore fantasy leans into the more colorful side. To coordinate the popping shades of this backpack, think about wearing it with other primary colors for a more statement look or neutrals to let the backpack really do the talking.

Flower Power

Channel a major retro mood for your cottagecore backpack with the Highlands Mini Pack. Cute, compact, and oh-so yellow, its fresh palette means it really will pair well with any outfit. Try going for other shades of yellow or cream to create a tonal look. 

Fruity and Floral

What better combination is there for your cottagecore than florals and fruit? The Fruity Floral SuperBreak® Plus features a deliciously delightful array of cascading strawberries, apples, and flowers—the kind you could imagine growing in your cottage garden. Set on a blue backdrop, it pairs perfectly with blue jeans and will add plenty of color pops to a casual white or pastel top.


This retro red daisies mash-up is a happy explosion of color. Reds, pinks, cream, and brown, this ‘70s-inspired aesthetic is pure joy. Pick a red or pink top to pair it with, plus brown corduroy pants and you’ll be feeling that flower-power from top to toe.

Enchanted Garden

This Glowing Garden Main Campus backpack is a colorful take on the cottagecore trend, featuring watercolor shades of green, aqua, and turquoise, all playing out to give the floral print depth. Pro tip: You’re gonna want to wear jewel tones with this bag.

In the Night Garden

Take your cottagecore by moonlight with this Cool Student printed backpack. Dark gray lily-style flowers scatter across a midnight blue backdrop, making it the perfect pack to pair with darker clothing or even matched to navy or gray tops and bottoms.
