I’ve been away on a lot of short trips recently and the one thing I have come to realise is that I am in serious need of a new weekend bag. I’ve got my travel luggage all sorted for longer trips abroad, but a weekend bag? I tend to just take my backpack, which is nowhere near big enough! Time to do a bit of shopping around to see what the best weekend bags for women are.
Best for nailing the sports trend
The chic sports trend is still going strong, and this sporty bag has got to be my top pick. It’s big, stylish and a lovely shade. Best of all? It’s currently on sale. It’s got a zip top closure and lots of space to store all of your belongings. The twin straps make it easy to carry and the slip pocket is perfect for storing small objects like your phone.

Cream Stripe Paris Print Weekend Bag
Best vintage leather style
I love the vintage look and this bag is simply beautiful. It’s unisex so you can share it with your boyfriend and keep him looking equally stylish. It looks a bit on the smaller side, but should be big enough for a short trip away. You could probably also use this as a day-to-day bag if you like big bags like I do. Perfect for student that need a little more room for books or your laptop. It’s made from natural brown leather, has an adjustable shoulder strap and two carry handles.
Gusti Leder “Harley” Leather Shoulder Bag
My personal favourite
This bag is simply gorgeous! It’s made from leather-look fabric, has gold-tone studding and is just big enough for a weekend trip away. It has twin grab shoulders, but it also comes with a removable shoulder strap to make it a bit easier to carry around. It has a zipper top and inner pocket which is perfect for your makeup. Also currently on sale at ASOS, this beautiful studded bag is a bit of a steal.
