As soon as I see any discounts begin there is only one thing on my list: designer handbags on sale. Rather than get swept away by a clothing trend or buy yet another navy jumper (although, that’s never really a bad move), I think it’s sensible to take stock of what you own and, if you’re set on spending some hard-earned cash, consider a big-ticket number that will end up being used week after week, year after year. No other fashion item can claim to do that quite as effectively as a great quality handbag. Invest wisely, care for it, and you will indeed have a bag for life.
While you will find that the designer handbags in the Black Friday online often fall into the “fun” category—think embellishments, party clutches or more trend-driven silhouettes—there are plenty of luxurious, understated options that are worthy of your time and attention. It’s worth buying a handbag in the sales that is as classic as can be, but that also still makes your heart skip a beat. Your chosen piece—whether Muun basket you’d instantly wear or Fendi baguette you know you’ll get plenty of use out of next party season—still needs to speak to your personal style. For me, I like polished, grown-up handbag styles that you can still ram a good amount of crap into, so you’ll find plenty of leather totes and roomy shoulder bags below.
Right now you’ll discover some pretty excellent discounts across the board in the Black Friday sales—especially at Matches, Harvey Nichols, Ssense and The Outnet. Below are the kind of styles that are fashionable and covetable no matter whether they’re reduced, but it sure makes them a whole lot more tempting to invest in when they are… Keep scrolling for 20 of the best designer handbags on sale right now.
