Ted Baker, £245
We didn’t think it was possible to lust after a suitcase this much! A gorgeous pink pastel hue, on-trend rose gold detailing on the wheels and delicate floral detailing – this case is the only option for the discerning fashion traveller.
Try something more traditional, and opt for a vintage design like this one from Brics. Unlike its vintage lookalikes though, this style is thoroughly modern in craftmanship, and the leather trims and four wheels means it’ll last for years to come.
For more affordable options that will last, we love Antler. Their designs are practical, stylish and come with a 10 year warranty; plus, they’re light as a feather.
More likely to be whisked on a weekend break than a full-blown getaway? Sometimes an oversized case is just too big, and it’s for these occasions that we recommend a weekend bag. Lipault’s stunning designs come in a range of fun colours, and are made from lightweight, hardwearing materials.
The UK’s leading premium handbag and accessories brand has launched a new luggage collection, and we’re totally sold on the vibrant, fun patterns. We love this print – the dog is synonymous with Radley, and instantly recognisable as it appears on the conveyor belt!
American Tourister, £115
This suitcase does it all. It’s expandable (so you can fit that extra pair of shoes in), is scratch-resistant and comes in super-light at just 3.6kg. At just over £100, it’s one of the best you can get at such a low price.
Samsonite are known to produce some of the best quality suitcases available, and with good reason. Plenty of storage, pockets to keep smaller belongings safe, quality materials and easy maneuverability all make for an investment buy you can rely on year after year.
This overnight bag from Aspinal doubles as a briefcase – the ultimate multi-tasker. Quality leather and intricate stitching makes it a real investment piece that can be passed down to another generation. With plenty of hidden pockets, this is seriously stylish bag that comfortably fits everything you could need for a short break.
This Kipling case is convenient and fun – who said your suitcase couldn’t be on trend? The metallic finish makes for a stylish edge tha’ll certainly get you noticed at the airport.
Those that travel for business often need a reliable case that will transport a laptop and documents easily. That task falls to this Tumi case, which plays its part perfectly. A practical case with a feminine edge, this is the perfect carry-on accessory.
