Two years of pandemic-induced lockdown has made us eager to jump on any and every travel opportunity, from quick overnights to month-long bucket list trips and everything in between. As you may know, we at ELLE.com care a great deal about fashion and accessories. Packing light is not quite our style, even for weekend getaways (especially when there might be a photo opp involved), so we take our travel bags very seriously. Instead of schlepping around a worn-out duffel bag, upgrade your travel aesthetic with a chic carryall that says “I’m an adult”—even if your long weekend is filled with questionable decisions. We’re currently eyeing a baby blue carry-on, a Gucci-fied carryall, and more bags worthy of a long weekend. Set up your OOO auto-reply and shop our roundup of 22 travel bags, here.

Orange you glad you chose this matchy-matchy set?
Ready for Adventure
Base Camp Duffel, Medium
Wildly durable and with room for all your essentials, this bag is as ready for an urban overnight as it is for a camping trip. It can be used as a duffle or worn as a backpack, which is especially useful if you’re trekking through the outdoors. It’s available in sizes from XS to XXL, so you can get exactly what you need.
The Mary Poppins Bag
This giant bag is made for those whose packing style is “stuff as much inside as possible.”
A Dash of Denim

The way this vintage Chanel bag will make you feel like Paris Hilton in the aughts? Priceless.
Bright and Cheery

If you’d rather spend your money on the clothes going in the bag or the travel itself…well, you do make a good point.
Louis Vuitton’s iconic luggage never goes out of style.
For the Artiste
Duffle Bag (Special Edition)
If a basic leather bag isn’t for you, try Mifland’s paint-splattered option.
Large Filippo Bag
At some point in your life you should own a quality leather tote bag.
Sized for the overhead bin and equipped with USB charging capabilities (so your phone, laptop, and AirPods can all stay juiced), this bag is the perfect travel companion.
The Convertible Weekender
Actress and Instagram sweetheart Shay Mitchell thought of everything when it came to this bag, which comes in not two, but three different versions. There’s the classic weekender, the mini weekender, and the convertible weekender, which goes from travel bag to day bag simply by detaching the bottom compartment.
The Ultimate Backpack
Silhouette 17 Backpack
A backpack that packs like a suitcase? More of this kind of ingenuity, please.

Packing light? This sleek spinning bag is a winner.
Weekender Bag for Women
Head-turning style at a penny-pinching price point.
Weekender Travel Bag
It’s the O.G. bag you packed for middle school slumber parties but with a grown-up look. (Although, they make the weekender in the classic Vera Bradley prints, too, and who are we to condemn paisley?)
