Whether you’re road tripping to see family or leavin’ on a jet plane for vacay, packing your stuff and then lugging it around can be stressful. But having the right luggage changes everything. Here are our picks for the most stylish luggage sets to help you travel like a pro.
Light as a Feather, Stiff as a Board
This is the lightest carry-on in the world, legit—it weighs only 3.9 pounds! Even loaded up with 360-degree spinner wheels and a TSA-approved lock, it’s the definition of “traveling light.” Carry-On Light, $245, july.com.
Lavender in the Air
The wheels on this baby fro Away do a full 360, making zooming through crowded airports a breeze. This stylish luggage has a TSA-approved lock and a flex feature that can size it up to schlep back your souvenirs. Bonus: Away is women-owned and partners with various charities and organizations, including the International LGBTQ+ Travel Association. The Carry-On Flex, $325
Make It Personal
Combine this under-seat-size bag with a carry-on and you’ll never need to check a suitcase again. Its four separate compartments include a laptop pocket and a charging port (you have to use your own power bank but the port makes it more accessible). Plus, the straps are super comfy, so you can load it up without breaking your back. Backpack for Laptop, $32.99, matein.com.
Roam Where You Want To
This bag is spendy, but you can customize the color of every element, including the front and back shells, wheels, zipper, binding, and handle, so you’ll never have trouble spotting your bag on the carousel. Plus, it has a built-in TSA-approved lock, an expandable option for even more room, and a lifetime warranty for functional fixes. The Large Carry-On, $575, roamluggage.com.
Take off in style with this vintage-inspired suitcase set. It’s got the look of old-school luggage but with the ease of updates—like quiet 360-spinner wheels and a built-in combo lock—for smoother travels. Personalized Pink Floral Luggage Set, $239.99 for a 2-piece set, patternislands.etsy.com.
