Compact, cleverly designed, and chic too, these five carry-on pieces will make quick and easy travel a cinch. —Jennifer Cox

You’ll be able to bring everything you need on your next getaway and transport easily and stylishly.
The Blackpink Fanfare Tote Bag from Bugatti ($45) will allow you to have all your must-haves at-hand.

The Bigger Carry-On from Away ($375) in this limited edition yellow and black print from Palomo Spain is made from a durable polycarbonate hard shell and includes a compression system and water-resistant laundry bag, plus a cool custom luggage tag.
