A purposely chosen weekend bag can lift the impression of your outfit when you travel. Of course the functionality is very important, but for those really interested in style, the bag combining well with your outfit might be very important. Buying a weekend bag can be seen as an investment as it will be with you for a long time, sometimes during quite harsh conditions. If the zip breaks when going through the airport security, it might ruin your journey. You will be grateful in decades to come after investing in a weekend bag of high quality. As the saying goes: ”Buy once, cry once”.
There are many avenues to head down when choosing your weekend bag. Chose the leather straps in a colour that harmonises with the colour of the shoe that you use the most. If the bag is naturally coloured such as olive or dark blue, it will harmonise with the majority of your outerwear. With the choice of size, it’s a good idea to think about combinations and the amount of clothing that you normally pack. An extra pair of shoes, two shirts/jumpers, a pair of underwear per day, and room for a washbag is important to remember. A sturdy shoulder strap is often the best when you want to carry your weekend bag on the metro to your Airbnb.
