Traveling this holiday season? Well of course you are! The biggest, and probably the most intimidating, tip that most people forget is to only bring a carry on for your travels. Yes, I said it! Whether you are going away for one day, five days, or two weeks, the easiest most hassle free way to travel is to not check a bag. Around the holidays, there are a lot of people traveling, and a lot of bags getting lost in the mix. No matter where you go, there is always a laundry option giving you a clean choice out of the same small amount of clothing you packed.
As important as it is to pack items that you can easily repeat during your vacation, it’s also important to make sure your carry on is a bag that you actually like carrying on. Most times, your carry on doubles up as your “around town” bag when you’re on vacation holding your map, phone, etc. So, of course the bag has to be chic in it’s own right.
Here are 8 Carry On bags that make your holiday travel chic and easy!
