Kate Spade

1. Kate Spade Saturday Weekender Bag ($180): This bag is the holy grail of weekender bags. It has a zippered bottom compartment for shoes, a removable phone and trinkets sleeve, two interior drawstring pockets and it’s cute to boot. Especially if you design your own.

Feel for Zeal

2. A Feel for Zeal Weekender Bag ($70): This canvas bag lets you play with pattern while still rocking grown-up colors.

Baggu Weekend

3. BAGGU Weekend Bag ($72): Are you a “toss it all in and iron when you get there” type of packer? The 26″ BAGGU gives you plenty of room in a bright poppy hue.

Madewell Transport

4. Madewell Transport Weekender Bag ($298): Looking for a leather carryall that’s big enough to pack your knee-high boots? Just try to resist the supple leather of this 24.5” case.

Rolling Hills

5. Rolling Hills Weekender ($395): This bag was built for a color blocking queen, from its cotton canvas and leather body to the candy striper lining. As an added plus, it’s all handmade in the USA.

Deux Lux Celestial

6. Celestial Weekender ($90): Well, hellooooo, vegan leather. The faux suede upper and croc bottom of this bag will add some major “rawr” to your already impeccable travel style.
