The Top 5 Stylish Carry-On and Weekender Bags

There’s really nothing better than a weekend away—you can relax, recharge and have some fun all before Monday morning rolls around. You want to take that trip looking stylish of course, and a big part of that is the bag you carry. Whether you’re traveling across town or across the country, a fabulous weekend bag can make or break your look.

Here are five we love right now:

  1. Longchamp Le Pliage Personalized Cuir: Longchamp is a big name as far as totes go and they’ve really broken the mold with the personalizable option. This bag falls somewhere between a large purse and a weekend bag and you can certainly fit enough for a weekend inside. It folds up so you can store it inside of something else and the leather is extremely soft. It features bright colors and you can have a personal detail added so you don’t have to worry about it getting lost. The leather is extremely high-quality, but it is pricey so it’s certainly a treat.
  2. Briggs & Riley Large Weekender: This bag is one of our favorites on the list because it’s budget-friendly, functional, durable and unisex. You can fit quite a few items inside of it—in fact, the size is one of the primary draws of this bag. It’s also expandable if you need even more room.
  3. Kate Spade Things We Love Carry-On Bag: If you love old Hollywood glamour, this is the bag for you. It’s designed as a trunk style with vintage flair and modern updates. It has a bright interior, colorful handles and it has an included wash bag and leather straps. You can wheel it or carry it and it’s spacious but small enough to work as a carry-on on most airlines. You certainly won’t have to worry about your carry-on blending in with this incredibly chic and stylish option.
  4. Longchamp Le Pliage Wheeled Carry-On: If you love everything about Longchamp but need something more luggage-like, this is it. This suitcase features an elegant, classic design made from a weather-proof nylon along with leather reinforced handles on both the top and side. We love the understated simplicity of this carry-on bag, and it has the potential to become your go-to piece of luggage for short trips as a result.
  5. Bric’s My Safari 21” Rolling Duffle: This bag is made from Bric’s signature LIFE fabric which is durable, resistant to stains and water and easy to clean. It features a full grain Tuscan Cognac leather trim and functionality is key with this bag. It has removable shoulder straps, removable luggage tags, TSA approved locks and handle slide features. It’s part of the larger My Safari Collection so you can match it with a full set of luggage, or just opt for the duffel bag alone.
