17 Cute & Convenient Carry-On Bags For Your Holiday Travels
The holiday crowds will likely be back this year — which means having a functional (and fashionable, we'd argue) weekender or carry-on bag is a must. After all, the more polished and put-together your bag makes you feel, the less flustered you'll be at the airport or on the road. Handy pockets and clever features don't hurt, either. This year, whether you're traveling for fun, to family, or both, make sure you have one of these stylish carry-ons in tow.
