Paring down has been the name of the game over the past year, sartorially and otherwise. From a style perspective, there’s been ample time to streamline closets, rid wardrobes of superfluous items, and invest in forever pieces that are as functional as they are aesthetically pleasing. Throughout this process, various accessories have revealed themselves to be the most valuable players; the little black bag has emerged as the no-nonsense solution for a paired-down lifestyle, holding necessities like phones, keys, wallets, masks, and the like.

In Vogue’s most recent video from the series 7 Days 7 Looks, model Adut Akech makes a case for the little black bag. In two of the model’s outfits, small black purses are notably featured—a Coperni shoulder bag and a Nylon Prada re-edition handbag. “I think accessories can elevate any outfit,” Akech says, sporting a black Coperni bag with a pair of high-waist Zara jeans and a purple cropped knit top. “I love small bags, like super small,” she continues. And turning her attention to her black nylon Prada handbag, the model waxes poetic; “This right here is my everyday baby. Another piece that goes with anything and everything, really.”

Just like the LBD, the LBB is a closet essential that can take you anywhere. With the return of nightlife, there’s never been a better time to invest in a new one. Here, shop the little black bags that are still big enough to hold your essentials, day or night.
