There's something about looking put together while traveling that makes everything feel more manageable. And while the pandemic taught us how much we all love a matching loungewear set, there's one type of set that packs the ultimate travel punch: the hard shell luggage set.
If we could give you just one travel style tip, it would be to invest in cute matching luggage. A good 2 or even 3 piece luggage set is timeless; it streamlines not only your travel look, but your entire packing routine. You never have to think too hard about which bags to use — just add pieces for longer trips and subtract for shorter ones.
We especially love hard shell sets because they're durable and easy to maneuver while also feeling both current and classic in design at the same time. Once you have a luggage set you love, it's going to be your travel companion for years to come, so you don't want to go too trendy, but you also want to avoid something that will soon feel tired and outdated.
That's why we turn to brands like Paravel, Calpak, Away, and Mark & Graham. These trusted luggage brands make suitcases that look so good and function so well, you'll never regret having more than one. Plus, many of these brands tend to bundle their luggage for less, making it easy to find a set on sale.
Here are the luggage sets worth investing in for your 2022 trips and beyond — and where to score a deal right now.
