Our Favourite Weekend Bags

When you’re planning a short getaway, packing your belongings in a large piece of luggage doesn’t always make sense. We prefer to pack more compact and opt to carry our essentials in a stylish weekend bag. To solve this dilemma, we searched high and low for bags that were equally stylish as they are functional, and to fit every budget. Happy travelling!

1. Herschel Ravine holdall, $107, asos.com.
Weekend up at the cottage or maybe an overnight spa retreat — whatever the occasion, this lightweight holdall is a roomy option. Available in four colours, including this mint green hue, there is a detachable shoulder strap for easy carrying.

2. Mismo MS Weekend, 365 EUR, mismo.com.
We love the sophisticated style of this Danish accessory goods brand and would love to tote this heavy duty canvas weekend bag on our next mini-adventure. The interior is ideal for separating your clothes from beauty products, thanks to the divided interiors. You can find Mismo this side of the ocean at Bergdorf Goodman.

3. Lo & Sons The O.M.G, $275, loandsons.com.
The great thing about this bag is when you’re not travelling with it you can bring it to the gym. Some of our favourite features of the bag include the side pocket compartment, ideal for storing shoes, a padded laptop compartment, a detachable messenger strap, plus an adjustable back panel sleeve that you can secure over a luggage handle. You’ll also find it comes in four great shades including red and espresso.

4. Topshop Woven Canvas Weekend Holdall, $90, topshop.com.
Stay classic with this canvas holdall in cream with camel leather trim. Included is an adjustable cross-body strap for easy carrying, you’ll also find tons of space in the interior.

5. Rag & Bone Duffle Bag, $275, rag-bone.com.
Technically this duffle bag is for men (at least according to their website), regardless, it’s a stylish weekend bag that we think could work for a woman too. With a snap pocket in the exterior, great for things you need easy access too, like your passport or I.D., the interior has enough space to get you through the weekend.

6. Mulberry Postman’s Lock leather travel bag, $2,000, net-a-porter.com.
What’s not to love about this leather travel bag? Big enough for a weekend getaway, it’s also a great airplane carry-on. Made from oak leather, the design details, from the braided handle to the gold hardware, is why the price-tag is in the four digits, however it’s a gorgeous investment piece you’ll have for years to come.
