Whether you’re newly engaged and taking a pre-wedding vacation, preparing for a bachelorette getaway or planning your dream honeymoon, luggage will undoubtedly be part of the equation. You might even be mulling over a romantic weekend escape, in which case a cute weekender bag and cosmetic cases will certainly be sound for a couple days’ worth of essentials. Wherever your next trip may take you, a new piece of luggage always guarantees a chic travel look, and we know you’re angling to look your best in transit.
If your suitcase has seen its fair share of miles, there’s no better time to invest in a new carry-on or roll away set. There are tons of brands shaking up the luggage game to include technologically advanced models and super-stylish colors and prints like pretty pastels, glamorous metallic shades, and marble motifs. If you find your phone battery runs out all too quickly (basically everyone, no?), a suitcase with a charging dock is definitely for you (it’s way easier than uncomfortably positioning yourself next to a random outlet). Besides, you never know when an unexpected delay may hit and you’re in need of some extra juice. Pro-tip, save yourself some hassle and secure yourself a style with an ejectable battery to comply with airline safety regulations. If you’re all about style, a distinct color or print is up your alley, indeed. Right now myriad brands have everything from pastel shades to bright hues. Those into a more glamorous look will love a metallic suitcase whether it’s trendy rose-gold, sleek silver or gold. Marble prints are super on-trend, too. Of course, if you’re a fan of basic black there are plenty of suitcases on offer for you. If you want to stand out just a little, however, go for a glossy finish or something with a unique strap or handle. For those set on a luxurious piece of luggage, nothing is more iconic than Louis Vuitton. Vintage-style trunks and smaller suitcases you can carry on are also worth the investment in sumptuous leather. Definitely don’t check these, though. You want to keep an eye on them like a prized designer handbag to ensure they don’t get damaged.
To complete your travel look, cosmetic cases are a must whether you opt for coordinating minis, transparent cases that make security a breeze, or a bolder color or print than your regular suitcase. These are perfect on beach getaways, too so you can prevent sand from creeping into the crevasses of your smaller essentials.
