Memorial Day is fast approaching and summer break is just around the corner; summer travel season is so close you can practically taste the mai tais.

Get extra excited with new luggage that will make toting your things a little easier and a whole lot chicer. Here are 5 picks to get you out of town in style.

Never lose your bag or cellphone power again with the Bluesmart Connected Carry-On ($399 at With the app, you can locate your bag anywhere in the world, plus there’s a built-in battery that can charge your phone up to six times (no more awkward wall-sitting!). And there are other cool features such as a digital lock, built-in scale and more.

If you’re traveling outside the U.S., you’re likely to amass a lot of coins, as most countries don’t use paper for small denominations. Keep all that dough in a cute coin purse such as the Love Bravery Large Coin Purse ($32 at Macy’s), from Lady Gaga and Elton John’s new collaboration. A clip makes it easy to find in a big tote or backpack.

If you’re just sick of black, stand out with the Hideo Wakamatsu Jelly Bean Carry-On ($189 at, made of bright-red, lightweight polycarbonate with a sky-blue lining.
