The ten best overnight bags

BRIGHTON: A handsome and roomy bag, the Brighton is the perfect accessory for trips to Brighton or just about anywhere else, for that matter. Expensive, but luxurious.
£399, selfridges.com
BLACK CANVAS TROLLEY: Topman comes up trumps with its chocolate brown and black Luggage bag. The traditional design comes complete with an extendable handle and wheels so you don't have to worry about packing anything too heavy to heft.
£85, topshop.com
AUTOGRAPH LEATHER FRONT POCKET:
Made with soft, buttery leather and yet surprisingly hardwearing, this leather travel bag puts a modern twist on a traditional design. It's also wipe clean which is useful if your toothpaste escapes.
£129, marksandspencer.com
GARBSTORE SKY:
Its baby blue, chambray-finish gives the Garbstore Sky a cool 1950s high-school feel. With its hidden zip, and straps big enough to fit over your shoulders, it's guaranteed to make you the coolest kid on the block, even if you're only going away for a night on business.
£165, urbanoutfitters.co.uk
NEW & LINGWOOD CANTERBURY:
Suitable for both men and women, the Canterbury Holdall is stylish yet understated. It's cabin-sized too, making it perfect for short trips abroad - provided you have the art of packing light down pat. £150, houseoffraser.co.uk
LONGCHAMP BOXFORD:
Whether you're going for a weekend in the country or a sleepover in the city, this classic overnight bag suits any occasion. Effortlessly stylish and will last a lifetime.
£195, longchamp.com
CATH KIDSTON BRITISH BIRDS:
Part of a new collection, but sticking to one of her classic vintage prints, Kidston brings us a gloriously pretty accessory and a practical-sized travel bag...two birds (well, a few more if you count those on the side of the bag) one stone.
£68, cathkidston.co.uk
FLORAL: A sweet floral overnighter that won't break the bank. It has two strap-size options and fastened pockets on the exterior and interior. Top marks all round for New Look's offering.
£24.99, newlook.com
EASTPAK STAND DUFFLE:
From the master of sturdy, functional travelling gear comes this duffle bag. It boasts an up-to-the-minute Aztec print with padded shoulder straps, and has zipped pockets both inside and out.
£36, eastpak.com
GOLDEN SOUK HANDMADE:
It may have a high-street price but its look is rather more haute thanks to its rounded design and hand-made aesthetic. An absolute steal at little more than £50.
£52.50, thetravellingsouk.com

If you’re packing light for a business trip or a weekend away, try one of these compact cases...
