Our top 10 stylish suitcases

What’s the secret to those impossibly chic celebrity airport snaps? We suspect it’s the snazzy suitcase in tow. Us mere mortals might have to pay a little more attention to cabin dimensions and clever security features, but we’d still like our luggage to look pretty while doing it. Here’s our round-up of covetable cases.

1. Split personality

Hershel Trade Power Carry On White And Orange Spinner Case

With a splash of punchy orange, this Herschel design certainly puts the fun in functionality. And that isn’t the only thing we love about this cabin case – the internal dividers, multi-directional dual wheels and USB charging port get top marks too.


Herschel, Trade Power Carry On Case, £168

 


2. Space commodity

Samsonite Cosmolite 3.0 Extra Large Case

 

If you’re looking for a roomy option that's still lightweight, the extra large size of this slick metallic range from Samsonite has had a weight-saving makeover; the perfect excuse to add a couple of extra paperbacks. We love the futuristic feel, too.


Samsonite, Cosmolite 3.0 Extra Large Case, £445

 


3. Off the record

American Tourister Soundbox Bass Denim Blue Hard Spinner Case

 

It doesn’t get much cooler than the Cristiano Ronaldo-approved Soundbox range, which takes its visual cue from vinyl. If this cornflower blue isn’t the hue for you, there’s a whole range of colour pop options.


American Tourister, Soundbox Bass Hard Spinner Case, £129

 


4. Think pink

Lipault Miss Plume Pink Gold 55cm Cabin Spinner

 

We didn’t know we needed a pink suitcase until we saw this show-stopping option from Parisian luggage brand Lipault. One thing is certain – you’re sure to spot it on the carousel.


Lipault, Miss Plume Pink Cabin Spinner Suitcase, £175

 


5. Timeless travel

Ted Baker Ladies Albany Black 4 Wheel Soft Cabin Suitcase

 

From the rose gold zips, handles and wheels to the Saffiano-style envelope pocket, Ted Baker know the devil’s in the details. As well as medium and large sizes, there’s duffle bags and holdalls in the same sleek style.


Ted Baker, Albany Black 4 Wheel Soft Cabin Suitcase, £225

 


6. On the go

Eastpak Tranverz Grey Soft Side Suitcase

 

For those off on an adventure, Eastpak is hard to beat. This utility-cool grey case comes with a decidedly roomy 42-litre capacity and a 30-year warranty, so you can count on fuss-free travels for the foreseeable future.


Eastpak, Tranverz Grey Soft Side Suitcase, £110

 


7. Cult classic

Biba Logo Navy 8 Wheel Hard Cabin Suitcase

 

For something reassuringly solid, it doesn’t get much more glamorous than this high-shine hard case embossed with the iconic Biba logo. The interior is perfectly practical too – think pockets and panels galore.


Biba, Logo Emboss Cabin Suitcase, £119

 


8. Retro revival

Linea Trunk Cabin Spinner Suitcase

 

Pairing a vintage-inspired design with modern tech - like a TSA-approved lock – this beauty is the best of both worlds. We’ll be referring to it as our ‘trunk’ and trying to get someone else to carry it for us.


Linea, Trunk Cabin Spinner Suitcase, £99

 


9. Blooming lovely

Ted Baker Illusion Floral 4 Wheel Cabin Case

 

Trust Ted Baker to make the list twice. This elegant case features one of their new floral prints (an instant classic, we say) as well as all the beautiful details you’d expect from the brand.


Ted Baker, Illusion Floral Print Suitcase, £225

 


10. True blue

Antler Juno Turquoise Cabin Case

 

Famed for their rigorous 12-point testing system and 10-year guarantees, there’s a reason Antler’s been in business for more than a century. This mood-boosting turquoise blue case - the update to their best-selling Juno range - is our top pick.


Antler, Juno 2 Turquoise Cabin Case, £145
