With summer Fridays in full effect, it’s the perfect time to jump on a plane, train or automobile and do a little traveling. That’s where weekenders come in. These bags can be stuffed or squished into practically anywhere, whether it’s the Jitney or a small plane.
If you’re going for a classic look, you can’t get anymore classic than canvas and leather. T. Anthony’s black and tan version is gorgeous, and would work just as well for you as the men in your life. Madewell’s essential duffle in a more casual navy is a little less spendy, and still beautiful.
On the sportier side, there’s a crop of distinctive nylon bags that are stylish but could do double duty as a gym bag. Herschel’s camo duffel is perfect for anyone looking to upgrade from basic black. Rebecca Minkoff’s blush pink bag will also stand out in a sea of neutrals if you’re looking for something a little more femme.
Feeling fancy? Then nothing less than designer will do. Prada’s iconic nylon and triangle logo make this bag a little more understated and subtle, not to mention it’ll go with everything. Gucci’s iconic GG print duffel with the Italian strip is nostalgic and luxe, and the kind of heirloom piece that you’ll pass down to the next generation.
