In the summer, there may be nothing sweeter than a weekend away from the city heat. I like to take only what I need, packing versatile, layering-friendly pieces that won’t bulk up or weight down my luggage. I just picked up a new LeSportsac suitcase (perfect carry-on size!), and while browsing Shopbop’s designer weekend bags, I was struck by the chic options for overnight carryalls.
I was first drawn to the Sara Berman Hortense bag. In sleek haircalf, it’s an unexpected take on the weekender. JADEtribe has an equally unique offering, albeit on the other end of the spectrum. Their patterned Nicole bag has an earthy, globetrotting vibe. From a rugged duffel by Alternative Bags to slouchy, soft classics from Marc by Marc Jacobs, there’s really no reason a woman’s travel tote can’t be as stylish as the rest of her wardrobe.
