Chic Luggage Brands to Upgrade Your Airport Style

By  Tamara Kraus

Herschel

If Audrey Hepburn were still alive today, we think she’d have this sophisticated tortoise suitcase. While Herschel is most widely known for its cool backpacks, the brand also has some next-level luggage that’ll take your travels to new stylish heights.

ROAM

The key to never accidedentally taking someone else’s suitcase at baggage claim? Making your own. ROAM lets you choose from a number of customizable options so your suitcase stands out from the rest of the standard veresions. Monogram included!

Samsonite

This tried-and-true brand (which you can shop on Amazon) is a more affordable pick than some of the newer, direct-to-consumer picks but still offers plenty of style. You can always count on Samsonite for ultra-strong shells that can handle being tossed around, but manage to be lightweight at the same time.

Away

The celeb-favorite brand is the Rolls-Royce of suitcases, so if you’re looking to truly elevate your travel game, look no further than luggage (they also have weekender bags and other accessories) from this cult-favorite brand. The selling point is the built-in USB charger that’ll save you from getting stranded at the airport with a dead phone.

Calpak

No one does trendy like Calpak, so if marbled suitcases are your thing, you’ll want one these statement-making suitcases. Multi-directional spinner wheels will help you fly through the airport when you’re rushing to a flight. Nordstrom has a few cute options from the brand (including the perfect pastel pink) and travel accessories like a luxe, silk neck pillow set.

Kensie

Don’t want to spend over $100? Kensie’s colorful and durable suitcases are a solid pick—this carry on is under $60! The 360-degree wheels are super smooth and the telescoping handle allows you to adjust the height for your comfort. You can shop this style in other sleek colors like rose gold, gold, and silver.

RIMOWA

This luxurious luggage line is in the same category as Away, but perhaps more into the designer bag realm, if you will. RIMOWA is definitely an investment, but one that will last for the rest of your life. So, if you’re an avid traveler, this is the bag to consider. Made from high-end aluminum with longevity in mind, the superior German design is hard to beat.
