Ever After: Chic Carry-On Bags

Your honeymoon calls for more than a basic duffel. Check out these four stylish options.

Even though you’ll have to wait until the plane lands to show off your style savvy honeymoon wardrobe, you can still give them a sneak peek while your seat belt is fastened. These chic carry-on bags are big enough to pack all you need on-the-go (keeping regulations in mind) and get you through the flight fashionably.

The buttery leather exterior of the Reece satchel features three front zip pockets and a front flap pocket for all your must-haves (hello, passport). The top snap flap pouch has a two-way zip-around closure, so turbulence won’t mean your stuff goes flying. There’s even a whistle hanging from the side, in case you need to get your spouse’s attention. ($170, available in sky blue or “Vachetta” camel at Cynthia Rowley, 164 Newbury Street)

The Santiago weekender is a soft reminder that vacations are for relaxing. Los Angeles-based designer Nila Prawidjaja, creator of Jesslyn Blake bags, crafts you a classic look in cotton and leather with this slouchy carry-on.
