If your resolution to shed a few pounds this year isn’t quite working out, you might consider switching that intention from body to baggage. As in luggage. While lightweight luggage choices were once limited in style, materials and price, today there are options galore — hard-sided versus soft; bright, candy colors versus more sophisticated hues; and levels of interior organization to satisfy everyone from minimalists to proud overpackers.

Losing weight was never so easy — choosing just one will be the hard part.
