We love this suitcase for its great features and low price. Cute, and durable, with plenty of packing space and organization, this still comes in at under $100.
Need a smaller bag? Take a look at the carry on version.
At under $300 for the entire set (they don’t seem to be sold separately), these almost don’t belong in the splurge category.
These pink beauties are constructed of durable ABS plastic that’s scuff resistant and lightweight. The 360 spinner wheels and telescoping handle add modern convenience to the retro design.
Steamline makes seriously luxe luggage with vintage appeal.
Steamline’s trunk style pink suitcases offer vintage glamour combined with modern conveniences like telescoping handle, gliding wheels, and TSA locks. They’re luxury priced as well, with the carry on alone priced at $780.

Which is better, soft or hardside luggage?
We’ve included both soft and hardshell pink luggage in this list, but which is better to buy?
Nowadays, soft luggage uses extremely durable materials, so while you’ll see some wear from baggage handling, it should last you a long time.
Hardshell luggage may be more durable overall, but it’s important to consider what the materials are, and look at reviews. Overall, hardside luggage can be more durable, but the finish may scuff easily on cheaply made hard suitcases, which is particularly upsetting if you’ve purchased a case for it’s pretty pink finish.
One option to protect both hard and soft suitcases is to use a luggage cover when you check your bag. It will protect the bag from scuffs and scrapes, and some covers are even waterproof!
If you’re concerned about security, hard luggage is usually more secure. Compared to soft luggage, it’s much more difficult to cut open. We recommend choosing a bag with integrated TSA locks for extra security.
I read that I shouldn’t buy colorful luggage because it will look terrible after a couple trips. Is this true?
There’s always some travel expert killjoy who wants to advocate for boring black luggage for everyone. We couldn’t disagree more!
In addition to just being more fun, colorful luggage is easier to spot at baggage claim, and more difficult for thieves to make off with unnoticed.
Some bags may scuff easily after a couple trips. It’s really something you have to look into on a bag by bag basis. As recommended above, read reviews to see how the bag has held up for others, and think about using a protective cover.
If you’re buying a carry on, you have less to worry about. Since your bag will mostly stay out of the hands of others (except for the occasional gate check on small planes), you should be able to keep it looking great by treating it gently.
What features should I look for in a suitcase?
Much of this comes down to personal preference, but there are some features that will make your life easier when traveling:
We love suitcases with 4 spinner wheels (as opposed to the older style of 2 fixed wheels), as they move much more smoothly and make it easier to pull heavy cases. Fortunately, almost all the bags on this list feature spinner wheels.
Interior organization with separate zipper compartments is also a must for us. You can get by without it (and packing cubes help), but having zippered dividers and pouches makes organization that much easier.
Finally, think about the weight of your luggage. Will it be easy to stow in an overhead bin/ carry up the steps of the Paris Metro once you’ve crammed it full of essentials? You may pay more for lighter weight luggage, but it’s usually worth it.
