Shopping

If you've been contemplating taking a weekend trip, science says a three-day getaway can be better for your mental health since there is less stress planning them and they are more cost-effective than extended vacations. Sounds like a win-win to us. One of the other perks is you can pack less.


Well, if you're not a known over-packer (which we can all be at times). To help you stay effortlessly fly while you fly, I have tracked down eight weekender bags that not only have enough space to hold your stuff but are stylish too.

1. LOMAO Travel Duffel Bag

Amazon

What stood out to me about this bag when I was scrolling through Amazon was the pricing and the design. I've bought a couple of bags from Amazon, and some haven't held up as well as I hoped. Since this bag is made with waterproof and tear-resistant Oxford fabric, this one might just hold up!

$19

I am a long time fan of Pardon My Fro. So when I saw the line expand into travel accessories, I added their duffle to my wish list. Their nylon bags come in two sizes, and if you ever check this bag, you won't have any trouble finding it at baggage claim.

The EVERLANE brand prides itself on providing high-quality clothing and accessories at affordable price points. Their weekender bags are no different. Their water-resistant, cotton twill bag comes with sturdy leather straps, and one reviewer said it was so roomy, they packed "four days of stuff in here, including two pairs of shoes."

The AWAY suitcase came onto the travel accessory scene and shook the table with its sleek, durable design. In April, the company added The Weekender to its line up.

My relationship with relaxers has been a bit of a cryptic one. While I did get my hair permed quite a bit during my adolescence, once I cut my hair short—really short—in college, I transitioned over to a mild texturizer; something that, by the way, is also a relaxer (it's just not as strong). Up until a few years ago, I would go in and out between a texturized TWA (Teeny Weeny Afro) and a completely natural (including no hair dye) Afro.
