We're big advocates of hard-shell luggage, but there are certain situations when a cumbersome suitcase is just too much. That's why overnight bags are the fuss-free travel essential to buy ahead of summer: They compress to fit in the trunk on road trips, rarely get checked when a plane's overhead bin is full, and aren't a pain to bring to work or on public transportation.
These 16 overnight bags for women (or anyone, really) tick every box: They're made with durable fabric, are lightweight, have ample pockets and compartments, and make packing a breeze. Plus, they're ultra-cute. Meet your new favorite travel companion.Stacie Flinner / @stacieflinner Paravel Main Line Duffel Leather-trimmed Canvas Weekend Bag $285Shop
