With the holidays approaching, it’s time to dust off your carry-on for a schedule of traveling. Whether you’re off to a tropical island for vacation or heading home to spend time with the family, your luggage should be anything but black. In fact, statistics show that the dark hue is the item of choice for thieves at airports and stations. Isn’t that enough of an excuse to go shopping for a statement-making weekender bag? Plus, a bright or patterned bag is much easier for you to spot on the luggage carousel or in a sea of bags in the bus’s luggage hold. So even if it’s a short trip or a long journey, we picked out a huge selection of stylish weekenders, carry-ons, and cosmetic cases for you to travel with in style. Check out our slideshow above and get packing!
