When we talk about fashion pairings, the first few that come to mind are blazers and crisp button-down shirts, white tees and jeans, and hoodies and denim jackets. But handbags and suitcases? Yes, yes we're going there. Even though there won't be a swarm of paparazzi anxiously waiting for you at airport arrivals to snap your jet-setting outfit (or maybe there will be?), that's no excuse for neglecting your number one priority: to be the chicest traveler in the cabin.
The easiest way to achieve that, second to straight-up copying celebrities and their airport style , is to tote this season's most coveted purse as you wheel an even chicer suitcase. As we're finalizing our plans to return home for the holidays (or perhaps gearing up for a destination reunion?), don't forget about your trusty travel companions: a sleek and shiny suitcase or a roomy leather carryall or an unassuming weekender. With these pairings, you could be wearing sweats and still land on a best-dressed list. Seriously.
Off to seek a Great American adventure? Pack your survival essentials in durable water-resistant pieces in army green (a neutral that will complement any outfit) and bright yellow (no chance of it getting lost in the shuffle).
A versatile weekender, like this black one from Everlane, leaves room to have fun with your purse.
