Once warmer weather strikes, it’s practically mandatory to clock in as much time outdoors as possible (it’s called summer vacation for a reason). But before you start planning your weekend getaways, shoreside excursions, or upstate overnighters, you need a trusty travel companion. A whirlwind trip calls for a chic weekender that’s small enough to tote but roomy enough to pack all your essentials.

We covered all the bases and plucked the 12 chicest carryalls around, from striped canvas bags to playfully patterned nylon ones. If prints aren’t your thing, we have timeless leather carryalls, too. Some even come equipped with shoe compartments (umm, genius!).

Who really wants to drag around a clunky piece of luggage? Not us. Shop our weekender picks before your next outing, and get packing!
