Preparing for a flight is as much about carefully organising your carry-on as it is about packing your suitcase. Whether you always bring a big carry-on to maximise your weight allowance or you prefer to travel light with a handbag just big enough for a passport, we have a feeling you'll fall for these A-list–approved options. The arrivals terminal at LAX is now its own street style spot, meaning we know how much stars love bringing cool carry-ons while travelling. Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid always rely on the same roomy totes for their fashion week travelling, meanwhile, Selena Gomez and Kate Bosworth go against the usual travel bag rules with their carry-ons. Scroll below to see the best handbags for long-haul flights, according to Bella, Sienna, Selena and more.
1. The Sunny Tote
Style Notes:Sienna Miller used her oversized Roger Vivier tote to brighten up her simple travel outfit, as the yellow gives personality to the white T-shirt, black culottes and Ray-Ban wayfarers.
Style Notes: Kendall Jenner spends a lot of time travelling—whether she's jetting off to fashion month or a Kardashian/Jenner/West holiday. She tends to carry a large tote bag or holdall, and we love her latest addition: a Gucci logo duffle bag with red straps and detailing that has plenty of room for long-haul necessities.
Style Notes: While many of us will carry as much as we're allowed to on board, Selena Gomez shows that sometimes it pays to travel light (this is a whole lot easier when you're a celebrity with a fleet of assistants, of course). The benefit of taking a deceptively roomy number like her Coach bag is that you can easily find your passport, boarding pass and liquids that you're usually scrambling to find at the bottom of a bigger tote.
Style Notes: Michelle Williams shows that a minimal bucket bag looks particularly elegant. The benefit of travelling with a simple bag like this is that it will go with everything in your suitcase when you reach your destination.
Style Notes: Unlike Kendall Jenner, Kate Bosworth tends to travel with small handbags rather than holdalls. While the Rochas micro bag she once wore to the airport would only work if used in tandem with an overspill bag (welcome to our daily club), this medium-sized Loewe bag is the perfect plane companion (it also adds some colour to a simple all-navy look).
