New Year’s Day for 2018 will be a long one with the big day happening on a Monday. It’s a long weekend and that means more opportunities to travel — not like we ever need a good reason to do so.

When you have your location, transportation, and accommodation sorted, choosing a weekend bag should be a breeze. Apart from these 13 things to consider when purchasing a luggage, it’s always great to bear in mind that sizes do matter if you’re flying to your destination. They should measure around 55 by 35 centimetres, with a maximum thickness of 25 centimetres to be able to go on flight. Plus, you’ll get to skip waiting for luggage at the belt, saving you time.

Whether you prefer to laze on the beach and wake up to the view of the sea or have a countdown party at these apartments, the ideal bag is one that is both lightweight and high in durability, not forgetting one that is also equal parts stylish and functional. The lightweight feature is important as it will save you the trouble of lugging a heavy bag around (since these overnight bags don’t have wheels). Also, be mindful when it comes to packing and try not to take advantage of the spacious interiors.

We’ve selected 5 luxurious overnight bags that are as equally stylish as they are durable. They are also neither too big nor too small — just the perfect size for an overnight stay or two.

1
Longchamp's Viva Avant Garde

This bag is from a special collaboration between Longchamp and Jeremy Scott for Spring Summer 2018. The Viva Avant Garde motif is from Jeremy Scott’s 1999 ad campaign, which was printed on a t-shirt worn by supermodel Jourdan Dunn.
