We found the cure for packing procrastination: a cute suitcase.
Traveling in style doesn’t stop when you find a cute and comfy outfit to wear the airport. It also extends to your travel companions and, by that, we don’t just mean your S.O. Your luggage rolls along constantly by your side, so you should probably pay some attention to how it looks.
If that’s not a good enough reason for you to swap out the old suitcase you’ve had since college with a new, more stylish one, let’s not forget the general feeling of distress you probably experience each time you get to the baggage claim and begin to wonder if you’ll be able to recognize your black bag in the queue of similarly-unremarkable-looking black bags on the carousel.
And it doesn’t hurt that there’s a world of cute luggage options to choose from right now. If your biggest concern is indeed someone else mistakenly taking your suitcase, opt for something instantly recognizable. A pretty pattern in vibrant colors or a bold-hued spinner will eliminate any future baggage mix-ups with your fellow travelers. To keep things consistent, select a full luggage set of checked and carry-on suitcases, and add a monogram for good measure.
If you’re into trends, then go for something in soft pink, the color of this season. In general, hard-sided luggage is a better investment since it protects your belongings from being smashed, but if you’re not a fan of the look or the material, opt for a leather bag.
Here, we rounded up 17 chic and sturdy options that will take your travel style game up a notch.
