With the holidays just around the corner, many of us are going to be taking that weekend trip to see our families or significant others. Make traveling stress-free by investing in a cute and affordable weekend bag. It’ll hold everything you need; clothes, beauty products, and last-minute gifts.

Here are some of my top picks:

KATE SPADE

So maybe the first option isn’t exactly affordable per se but isn’t it beautiful? If labels matter to you then this Kate Spade Weekender bag is perfect. Plus, you can make this completely your own by choosing the colors yourself or opt for one of their pre-made weekender bags. The bag is extremely versatile, the bottom of it is disguised as a shoe compartment and there are functional compartments inside to keep toiletries together so they don’t get lost in the bottom of your bag or spill all over your clothes.

 

VERA BRADLEY

 

Choose from fifteen fun different patterns like “Midnight Blues,” or “Flutterby (above),” to travel in style this weekend. The quilts add some dimension to a very busy bag. There are five pockets inside for small items and two side pockets that can fit your boarding pass, bus ticket or any important identification you may need to whip out at a moments notice. Also, you can take this weekender bag along with you for longer trips because it has a sleeve that slides right onto the handle of a rolling luggage.

H&M

Kill two birds with one stone with this small faux leather jacquard-woven bag. This can easily double as a regular purse and it’s really trendy. Plus, who wants to carry two bags when they’re traveling anyway?

 

Le Sportsac

When you think of travel, you’ve got to think of Le Sportsac. They have purse organizers, travel sets for toiletries and medium to extra-large weekender bags. Depending on the print you choose the cost of the bag ranges from $104 – $132 for the medium size. Great for the sporty girl on the go. Celebrate Minnie Mouse throughout the years or opt for a snakeskin, polka dot or funky monster print.

GUESS

Close your mouth. Yeah, I know this bag is jaw dropping it made me pause in awe for a second too. With contrast handles and a sleek embossed exterior, this bag will become your go-to for traveling. The black gives off a chic vibe and it’ll make you feel like a celebrity jetting off from coast to coast.

There are plenty of options when it comes to choosing the bag that’s right for you. Just remember to look for something versatile and that’ll really hold up. The cost doesn’t matter but if it feels and looks cheap it’s probably not best to use for traveling. The worse thing that can happen to you is it falls apart as you try to get from point A to point B. Don’t add any unnecessary stress and choose from one of the five above or branch off and look for something similar.
