Away We Go: The Best Statement Bags For Fall Travel

It's time to upgrade your carry-on game.

When it comes to traveling — short distances and long — there are a few things universally understood to ring true above all else: that one should only pack what they need, that airport outfits should prioritize comfort above chic, and that carry-ons are their own statement piece. As we gear up for routine fall travel, the latter is definitely an idea we can get behind.

Since the ‘90s, celebrities have made airports not just a method of transportation but something of a style destination. And they’ve wielded their own trends across the street style realm, too — like turning sweatsuits into a booming business (and appropriate to be worn in public), pairing tracksuits and denim with heels, and making the case for a large and in charge fashion hat.

From a Birkin to a Bottega duffle, a Givenchy bowling bag-meets-satchel, and more, the sky is the limit when it comes to choosing your carry-on. Gentle reminder: TSA requirements for carry-on bags are 22 x 14 x 9 inches / 56 x 36 x 23 centimeters (including handles and wheels). That means that every bag across isn’t just fit for turning real life into an editorial, but airplane-ready, too.
