Choos­ing classy women’s week­end bag

The Manica Post - - The Weekender -

WHETHER you need it for a week­end get­away or just to keep your favourite stuff with you all the time, whether trav­el­ling by plane, bus or car no mat­ter how you are get­ting to your get­away des­ti­na­tion, your style should al­ways mat­ter. Here is how to choose a classy woman’s week­end bag.

Week­end bag

Usu­ally means a large and eas­ily por­ta­ble bag that looks like carry-on lug­gage, but they come in dif­fer­ent shapes, de­signs and sizes.

You should look for one that is large enough to hold ev­ery­thing you would need for a week­end get­away — change of clothes, toi­letries, a book, and other stuff us girls throw into large bags on a whim.

If you are only go­ing for a girls’ week­end, the de­sign and style won’t mat­ter as much, but if you want to im­press with your sense of style, such as a busi­ness trip or a week­end with a new beau, choose an el­e­gant, classy week­end bag. A nice de­signer bag, which is also cool and bud­get-friendly is per­fect.

Black Leather

This one says you like lux­ury and aren’t afraid to in­vest in good pieces that will last for a long time. The ideal choice is dark leather as it won’t get dirty as fast and it will be eas­ier to clean. It’s durable, and it won’t lose its shape dur­ing the years. An­other plus, the creases of a well loved, bag will only give it an ex­tra, vin­tage flair. Of course, you can also go for faux leather or a sim­i­lar syn­thetic ma­te­rial.

Brown Can­vas

Ideal for a week­end in the coun­try, the brown can­vas is more like a duf­fel bag, but still classy and el­e­gant. If you plan on wear­ing denim or be­ing in na­ture, the brown can­vas is a great choice. The ob­vi­ous choice would be can­vas week­ender, but you can find stylish brown bags from other de­sign­ers for less money.

Bold Colour

Go for a qual­ity bag in a rich colour to brighten up your trav­el­ling out­fit. De­pend­ing on your wardrobe, try a mus­tard, wine, or pear hue. Bright blue is also cool, but don’t go for a neon or day-glow shade if you want to keep it classy and el­e­gant.

My favourite is the Domo ladies bag in a gor­geous plum shade.

Print or Pat­tern

If the oc­ca­sion is ca­sual, you can go with a printed bag. Stay classy with a se­ri­ous print, and stay away from the pat­terns that would look bet­ter on a nurs­ery wall. Flo­ral prints or a dis­creet an­i­mal tex­ture, such as the one on the Ethan Ko, look best

Clas­sic Bags

Th­ese are the clas­sic, clean, week­ender bags of your dreams. Some are def­i­nitely more af­ford­able (and more an­i­mal friendly) than the oth­ers, but if you want to carry a clas­sic week­ender and feel like a pi­lot in the 50s or a rugged day-trip­per that smells of rich ma­hogany, th­ese are the bags for you.

Sporty Bags

If your def­i­ni­tion of a week­end away in­cludes hik­ing, golf­ing, or a lot of squash, then th­ese might be your favourite. I’m also re­ally into th­ese bags be­cause they can dou­ble as your gym bag.

We are get­ting into the sea­son of week­end get­aways, get a duf­fel bag that wont cramp your style. — On­line.
