As if traveling isn't stressful enough, we have to worry about bringing all the essentials—comfy (read: stretchy) jeans, an outfit that can be dressed up or down, something glitzy for a girl's night out, and at least two pairs of shoes—all without overpacking. Make the trip easier for yourself by choosing an overnight bag that's not too big nor too small. Enter: the weekender bag. It's the perfect travel-sized companion for a long weekend getaway or quick three-day trip whether by car, train, or plane, all while avoiding pesky checked baggage fees.
