Looking for the perfect bag for your travel needs? After doing extensive research, I have put together this list of the best and the boldest bags you can find in each category. Whether you are a fashionista, practical travelers, or are looking for gifts, here are some travel bags that would solve every space issue.
THE BUSINESS BAG
Burlington Wheeled Business Bag by Knomo London $399 is the best looking working woman bag out there that makes a statement. The carry-on size bag is good for overnight getaways, day trips and office meetings. Made from soft and sleek nylon exterior with saffiano leather trim and gold look hardware, this bag is durable and stylish at the same time. It has shockproof padded protective compartment to safely store a laptop or tablet.
Every bag has a unique Myknomo ID number found on the ID tag inside, and if lost, the finder can easily contact the company with the unique code. Knomo London says they will retrieve your Knomo and return it to you free of charge.
THE CAMERA BAG
Don’t be seen with a huge black ugly camera bag each time you decide to take your professional equipment. The Claremont Leather Camera Bag by Lo & Sons $300 looks like a stylish leather purse and features extra internal padding specifically designed to protect a DSLR camera and a small extra lens. The cross body bag has adjustable straps and several discreet pockets for essentials – a back zipper pockets for cash/keys/cards, two front pockets for memory cards, and a hanging SD memory card holder. This is the best looking camera bag a woman could ask for!
THE SHOE BAG
Cute and durable shoe bags for every season that won’t tear off or go astray. Shoes on the Fly Shoe Bags help you pack better with their durable and artfully designed bags made of nylon (for sneakers and flip flops) and cotton (for heels and flats). Each bag is easily identifiable with “heels, flats, graduate, bridal party” engraved on the front. These are fun, functional and machine washable. The 4-bag shoe collection $85 is the perfect gift for a female traveler. A travel quote and bookmark comes packed inside.
THE COSMETIC BAG
The Voyager Medina Travel Kit $155 is the most comprehensive hanging cosmetic bag that can fit everything you need when you travel – makeup, shampoo, face cleanser, perfume, jewelry, etc – all in one place. This is especially helpful when you are constantly changing hotels like me, as you are less likely to leave behind stuff. The nylon bag in fossil floral colors is made from lightweight-yet-durable fabrics and has easy-access U-shaped pockets, jewel tone metallic hardware, ribbon-like leather zipper pulls and distinctive ID tags.
THE JEWELRY ORGANIZER
Airline policies suggest that you never pack expensive jewelry into your checked baggage, but how often do we do it for the sake of convenience? Now, you can pack all your bracelets and rings into a compact Genoa Stella Jewelry Case by Hudson and Bleecker $58. Inspired by the colors and designs of the Italian Riviera, this super chic travel jewelry organizer is perfect for a cruise or wedding getaway.
The Tiny Tone by Dagne Dover $175 Tote is a smaller version of the multiple compartment tote bags. This very cute cross body handbag fits an iPhone 6, id’s, lipsticks, keys and business cards. It comes in elegant colors such as linen, champagne and onyx. The larger versions of the totes ($265) have signature organizational system to keep all of your travel
essentials in one place.
THE WEEKEND BAG
The Weekender Bag by Love 41 $578 is no ordinary duffel. Each of the side pockets detach to be used as cross-body bags for your day trips and it packs tons of organizational
features. The all in one feature consolidates the use of taking separate carry-ons, day purse, and hand bags. Made from Scottish waxed cotton and the most durable kind of leather (full grain), this item has a 41-year warranty. It is light weight, has extra padding for your shoulders, and folds away for storage. Another great thing to know is that 100% of all Love 41 profits go back to helping orphans, widows and street kids in Rwanda.
