You can take a black bag anywhere. What bag do you reach for when you want to look polished and ready for anything? What color bag do you reach for when summer is over and there is a chill in the air? What color bag do you wear with that LBD, that red sheath or that silver column? What color bag do you throw over your shoulder when riding that Harley or Schwinn down old US 1? What color bag crosses your body when you are on the museum trail? What color is that fanny pack you just wore to the Beatles reunion (fooled ya, huh?)
The answer is an easy one, the only one—a black bag. And there’s no better time than Black Friday to buy one. If you’ve been eyeing a certain special bag for the last year or two but couldn’t justify the price tag, Black Friday is here to save you. Maybe you’ve been browsing some of the season’s trendiest silhouettes, like the bucket bag or fanny pack, but don’t really want to invest in one. Then Black Friday is here to ease you out of your sartorial comfort zone and into something a little trendier.
Featured here are some of our favorites, for Black Friday and for any day because black bags work. They just do.
