Memorial Day weekend is alarmingly close, and once that happens I think people will be wanting to get out of wherever Dodge happens to be for them to the beach, the mountains, wherever, in record numbers. And maybe you’ll need a spiff new bag for that? I especially like this durable, well-priced, and versatile one from Herschel.
I dig the way leather accents jazz up this Madewell bag.
This one from Tumi has a pretty perfect boxy shape, and because it’s Tumi, it will likely last forever.
This Filson bag is meant for men, but I think it is just impossibly chic.
This recycled canvas bag is a bit of a risk in white, but so elegant.
I like that this one is expandable but doesn’t look like it is.
Another leather specimen that looks like it would only get better with age.
Here’s another impractical one, color-wise, but I think it’s just so good.
The exterior pockets here would make this one handy for airplane travel.
I’m crazy for the chevron stitching on this otherwise simple duffle.
This Tumi tote is another one that would be ideal for the plane—I’m a fan of the more vertical shape.
And how could I not include this oversized yellow one?
This one folds up into nothing, making it perfect if you’re the type of person who comes home with more stuff than she left with.
Just a cute, monogrammable canvas bag that would appear to fit a ton.
This one is big enough to work for an especially long weekend.
You can’t beat L.L. Bean for something classic and very durable, and I like the combination of hues here.
And finally: a Dagne dover bag that comes with a whole ton of interior and exterior pockets.
