If like us, you have a particular affinity for handbags, your collection will cater to your every outfit, event and colour combination.

When it comes to the occasion of travel however, only a few handbag styles fit the bill.

If you’re headed on vacation, it’s likely suitcase space will be a commodity that limits you to just one or two travel-approved handbags, meaning choosing wisely is essential.

So, what should you look for in the perfect travel handbag? We recommend opting for crossbody styles—freeing up your hands for navigation and taking holiday snaps—and keeping the size small enough so it won’t weigh you down, but also big enough so it can fit everything you need for the day.

It’s a lot to ask from one accessory, so we’ve done the groundwork for you and found the best travel-approved handbags to shop for your next vacay.
