Travel in Style on your Hen Party


With the shimmer and sparkle of Christmas a distant memory, it’s time to look forward to the new shine of 2016. And what better way to kick start January than with a spot of pampering and good times with friends? A mini break with the girls is a great way to celebrate your upcoming nuptials and get the girls all together to do something a little bit different and luxurious for your hen party. Here’s my top picks of the best weekend bags to make sure you look just as good travelling as you do throughout the hen weekend.


If you’re travelling light on your hen party weekend there’s no need for a larger bulky bag. This more streamlined bag is a stylish tote that’s suited perfectly to a spa weekend to carry your bikini and toiletries. The pale blue colouring is bang on trend right now, with pale blue being one of Pantone’s colours of the year for 2016 and is set to be big in the spring. When travelling, team with an outfit of charcoal greys for an ice cool look to match the January weather, or add a touch of warmth with camel tones and gold jewellery to match the metallic trimmings. Powder blue bags are going to be everywhere in the upcoming months but if you fancy one now this one from Accessorize, above, is in the January sales now for under ten pounds so snap it up quickly!


Choosing a travel bag in a more off beat colour than the usual tan, black or navy can restrict it’s flexibility in matching your travel outfits or for it to be used multiple times for various occasions. However, if you do want a pop of colour try a reversible bag like this one from Oasis. The tan side is a great neutral warm colour that will match almost any outfit and will always be in fashion, whilst the fun coral side is the perfect way to add a splash of interest to a calmer coloured outfit of white and creams. Or you can even use it as a fun, bright beach bag if your hen party weekend is taking you to a sunshine destination.


If (like me) you tend to be one of those girls who packs everything but the kitchen sink when you go away a bigger, slouch styled travel bag will work best for you. The soft suede slouch structure of this Topshop travel bag allows it to stretch and mould to cater to all you have packed. With larger travel bags it’s always a bonus to have hand holds along with a shoulder strap, making for a great practical bag that you can take anywhere. The red suede of this one is fun and makes a bold statement – perfect for travelling in a simple outfit of denim jeans and a while t shirt. If you fancy something a bit tamer is also comes in a deep cloud blue or in traditional black leather for a chic fashionista look.

Michael Kors

If you’re lucky enough to jet set on luxury weekends throughout the year and love going away multiple times with your girlfriends you might be more willing to splash a little bit more on a weekend bag that’s going to last and last. If so, this large Jet Set Michael Kors holdall is perfect. Made from Saffiano leather, a large weekend bag can be an investment piece that’s timeless and work with your wardrobe for years. Tones of tans, greys, coffees and camels are a go-to for your first travel bag if you’re willing to spend a lot of money, ensuring you get you your money’s worth by having an elegant travel bag that looks chic and can be teamed with all you own looks. This one has an adjustable shoulder strap and multiple pockets on the inside for quick access to all your essentials, making it perfect as an overnight bag, long weekend holdall or a carry-on bag for a destination hen party.

Wherever you end up, be it a serene spa location, chic log cabin or a glamorous city break, there’s no excuse not to travel in style. Whether you’re looking for a bag that fits the current fashion trends or something more timeless and chic to see you through your many hen weekends to come, there’s something to suit all types of hen weekends - no matter your destination, style or the amount of clothes you want to take with you!
