The Handbags Celebrities Always Carry to the Airport
Deciding what to pack for a trip is never easy. Even if you check a large suitcase, you never know what you might need while you're on the plane. That's why we always make sure we have the important stuff with us at all times. And celebrities have taught us how to find a roomy purse that looks great with our outfit, too.
Take, for example, Tracee Ellis Ross, who demoed a comfortable yet cute fashion statement while recently striding through an airport terminal. Her secret to nailing effortless airport style: throw on your favorite sweatpants and sneaks. And let a big, bold bag take center stage. You can even double up with a backpack.

A crossbody is always the best solution to keep your hands free as you travel. Kate Bosworth rocked a pretty Miu Miu design that might look small, but actually can hold quite a bit.
Amal Clooney modeled a sophisticated airport look with a tan Michael Kors Bancroft Large Calf Leather Satchel. We're fans because you can also pop your laptop into this one.
Reese Witherspoon is faithful to her sturdy Parker Thatch tote that's personalized with her initials.
Sometimes you have to borrow from the boys — like Khloé Kardashian did as she prepared to make her way through the airport with a special Goyard backpack.
Tracee Ellis Ross
This sold-out Balenciaga tote will never get old. The patent leather finish packs just enough shine to make a statement, but it's subtle enough to work with everything in your closet. And you can pack an extra pair of heels and a blanket in this one.
