Trendy Suitcase Designs for the Fashion-Forward Traveler

Fashion-forward travelers in the UAE are embracing stylish travel accessories that enhance comfort and add a unique touch to their luggage ensembles. These chic travel essentials range from packing cubes to tote bags and suitcases.

A fusion of style and practicality, this Delsey Chatelet Air 2.0 suitcase has a modern aesthetic with a sleek appearance. Its hard-side construction and spinner wheels ensure durability.

The Large: Aluminum Edition

Away suitcases are as ubiquitous as Hudson's and Auntie Anne's in airport terminals, but the company's Aluminum Edition takes a design twist. While the case still offers a smooth exterior, it does away with zippers and instead uses locking latches for an extra-secure closure. The luggage also features a removable laundry bag storage pouch and onboard battery pack for convenience.

The Aluminum Edition's sleek look is a result of the high-grade aluminum used to make the case. This material is known for its durability and can withstand more rough handling from baggage handlers than other types of luggage. However, this type of luggage is heavier than cases made from polycarbonate and will show dents and scratches more prominently than those with a smooth surface.

Another brand that has a strong reputation for luxury travel gear is Tumi. The company's Aluminum Continental Carry-On is another slick case with an aluminum frame, aluminum corners, and TSA-approved combination locks. Its swivel wheels and impact-resistant telescoping handle offer easy maneuverability, while the nylon-lined interior offers compression straps and zip dividers to help keep clothes and belongings organized.

This case is on the heavier side at 10 pounds for a carry-on, but it provides plenty of space to accommodate the needs of most travelers. It also includes a four-piece organizer bag set, and the brand offers a lifetime warranty on the product if it's damaged during a trip.

If you're looking for a suitcase that is both lightweight and stylish, check out this option from away. The case is made from an aerospace-grade aluminum-magnesium alloy and features a sleek brushed silver exterior. The sturdy aluminum exterior also has a rubber seal to protect contents, while the interior is designed with compression straps, a smart removable garment sleeve, and a handful of zipper compartments to keep your clothes organized. This luggage is a bit more expensive than other options, but it's built to last and comes with a limited lifetime warranty.

The Large: Duffel Edition

For those who want to keep their gear organized as they travel, a large duffel is a great choice. Some of the best designs come with organizational features, like the REI Co-op Roadtripper 100 or Patagonia Black Hole Duffel, while others feature a simple design without organization (think the Patagonia Base Camp). Either way, you'll find plenty of space to pack your clothing, accessories, sports equipment, and more.

If you're looking for a more stylish option, consider a duffel bag made from leather. These bags are typically made from vegetable-tanned leather or full-grain and are often finished with brass hardware and other accents. They're also available in a variety of colors, from classic black to bright red, so you can choose the one that fits your style.

While packing a big duffel into a small carry-on isn't usually high on the priority list for most travelers, it can be a convenient feature if you're low on storage space or heading out on an expedition where every ounce counts. Some of our favorite duffels can fold down into a stuff pocket or attached packing cube, including the Osprey Ultralight Stuff Duffel and The North Face Base Camp Duffel XL.

When it comes to carrying comfort, you'll also want to consider how much weight your new duffel will be able to bear. Some styles will feature backpack straps for comfortable carry, while others have a variety of grab handles and webbing loops that make hauling heavy loads more manageable. For example, the AmazonBasics collapsible duffel is lightweight at just a pound, yet it's surprisingly sturdy and can handle hefty hauls.

Other large duffel bags will feature more traditional designs, such as this deluxe edition of The North Face Base Camp Duffel. Its deluxe embossed shell material, supple leather trim, and metal hardware are just as luxurious as they are functional. The oversized zippered pocket runs the length of the bag, giving you plenty of space to stash your most essential gear. This duffel also includes a trolley sleeve to securely fit on the top of a rolling suitcase, and the shoulder straps are padded for added comfort.

The Large: Tote Bag Edition

Our largest everyday tote is the bag that can accommodate everything your day throws at you (and in). Spacious and savvy, this form-holding 100% cotton canvas design has dual carry handle sizes, a dedicated laptop sleeve, a top zip, a drink bottle holder, and a luggage pass-through band for easy, worry-free travel. It's also available in a smaller size for even more capacity.

Keep your tech close with the large tote's dedicated laptop pocket that fits a 14" MacBook Pro—even with a case. Additional zipped pockets let you stow accessories and passports easily, too. And since it's designed to fit as a personal item on your flight, you can slip it right under the seat and continue your journey without care.

Made from textural cotton canvas that fades and relaxes over time for a worn-in look, this covetable silhouette is ready for an overnighter or a weekend getaway. Featuring namesake branding, chunky top-sip closure, and multiple inside pockets, the tote can be carried by its sturdy top handles or slung over your shoulder. It can even double as a stylish lunch tote for work or school.
