As warmer weather closes in its time to start prepping for spring break and weekend getaways. For shorter trips, it’s imperative to pack light and efficiently and the right weekender bag for women can make all the difference. I’ve outlined a few bags below to suit a range of tastes and pocketbooks. Take a look!
Weekender Bag For Women
Kate Spade Saturday: The Small Weekender
This casual brand’s signature weekender bag for women is the small and standard size. New patterns and colors are introduced every season, and they even have a tool to customize your own bag on their website. Although, the price is quite a bit higher for the custom style as compared to the standard colors.
Aside from large range of options, the best part about this bag is the great use of compartments and storage areas. The zippered bottom is especially handy for shoes or dirty laundry storage, and even on the small it is still a roomy compartment. It also has a removable organizer on the interior, which is great for phones, cords, and jewelry.
The downside of this bag is of course the price tag, and because of the rounded top the small does not accommodate a 13” laptop. Also, I would prefer the zippers to be metal for durability instead of the rigid plastic.

Lo & Sons: The Catalina
Similar to the Saturday bag, the Lo & Sons Catalina canvas weekender bag for women includes a bottom portion but on a larger scale. You can fit everything you may need and more is this spacious bag like shown in this post about one bag travel. This simple and classic design comes in a few muted colors, grey being my favorite, and the cotton canvas is machine washable.
In addition the Catalina collapses and folds flat, making it easy to store when not in use. The large main interior compartment will require the use of packing cubes to keep your items organized. Also, be careful not to overfill, because the bag will become heavy quickly.

Anthropologie: Mentari Weekender
Looking for a bag with a little more personality? The Mentari weekender bag for women has a sunny color, tribal pattern, and unique details will be sure to draw attention and compliments. It features a beaded tassel and bright blue interior with leather details.
The Mentari is outfitted with adjustable shoulder and cross body straps with two interior pockets. Its smaller size would be great for weekends in a city or resort. Keep in mind it may not be suitable for rugged trips, and it probably wouldn’t stand too much abuse.
If this particular look doesn’t suit your needs, no worries, check out the other eclectic bags that Anthropologie offers. Be warned, the prices can get really hight, but they have styles you won’t see in every store or arm.

Everlane: The Twill Weekender
Everlane carries a menswear inspired bag with good looks suitable for both women and men. It features soft leather straps and zipper pulls with a small interior pocket. Its lack of compartments isn’t ideal, but will give you an excuse to pull out your packing cubes and organizers.
I like the soft water-resistant twill which folds flat for storage. Also, the top of the bag is square instead of the usual taper. This is great for stacking items without creating tension on the zipper. This weekender bag for women comes in a range of colors, but I prefer the casual cool look of the grey with offset stripe.
