There’s a day to celebrate lovers, and a day to celebrate mothers, fathers, grandparents, children… and many so on — so it’s definitely high time the solo people get their own day too.
Welcome to “Black Day”, celebrated on April 14 by eating black noodles and wearing black. This Korean day of observance is for anyone who celebrated Feb 14 Valentine’s Day alone.
And while some might see Black Day as a time to mourn a lack of a love life, we see it as the perfect time to practise self-love and treat yourself to an impeccable classic black bag to go with your Little Black Dress.
Who needs chocolates or flowers when the chic black shoulder bag will last longer than either gift type? Enough said. Here’s a curated list of our favourites.
