When you travel, travel in style. There’s no doubt that you have to carry identification, cards, papers, jewelry… pretty much the works, so here are two brands that will let you tote it all with panache.

Stewart/Stand designs are created with the modern traveler in mind, for both men and women. The elegant Stewart/Stand billfolds, wallets, money clips, key chains, passport covers, business card holders, and check book wallets are all innovative, tech-inspired, and unique. The Stainless Steel Wallet is a modern alternative to leather and also helps deter identity theft. There are dozens of other vegan options available at, so peruse the website’s selection, and keep in mind that the Stewart/Stand Credit Card Cases are one of Oprah’s favorites. The Queen of Amazing Things has spoken and it’s official: Stewart/Stand is marvelous.

Hadaki travel bags are brightly patterned and bold, featuring colors that pop off the luggage wheel amid a sea of uninspired black bags. Featuring luggage and travel accessories with names like Jazz, Mardis Gras, Arabesque, Colbalt Paisley and O’Floral (to name just a few, though there are bright solid color options too), Hadaki offers backpacks, make up bags, jewelry bags, totes, tech sleeves, phone pods, handbags, messenger bags and duffel bags. Perfect for beach this summer as well as long trips. Check them out in all of their luminous glory at

Whether you’re traveling to the shore or to the other side of the globe to seal a deal, you’ll want to grab this gear for the ride.
