Call it a work bag, call it a pocketbook, call it a Mary Poppins bag — either way, a tote bag is essential in any woman’s wardrobe.

The classic, rectangular silhouette lends itself to carry everything you need from the basics — wallet, keys and sunglasses — to a day’s worth of necessities, including gym clothes, your laptop and an umbrella. You name it, a tote bag can carry it. The structured bag’s long straps make it easy to, well — tote, everything you need for the day ahead.

And there’s one do-it-all bag that reigns supreme in a crowded sea of totes: The Everlane Day Market Tote — and its beauty lies in its simplicity.

This bag checks all the boxes: It’s roomy, sturdy yet lightweight and comes in eight different colors to suit your style.

Despite its minimalist design, this tote is fashion-forward and truly versatile. You can wear it to work, run errands or even on your travels. Its spacious interior and flat base keep small-to-large belongings upright and organized, and there’s an internal pocket for those items you need handy.

“Comfiest bag I've carried. No matter how heavy or full it is, it still sits effortlessly on my shoulders. Large enough to fit everything needed, including lunch and water bottle,” explained one happy customer.

The Day Market tote has a loyal fanbase, and Meghan Markle is part of the club. Before she became the Duchess of Sussex, Markle carried the Cognac version for her first-ever official outing with Prince Harry in Toronto back in 2017, causing Everlane to sell out of the style (don’t worry, it’s back in stock).

Another great thing about this bag is the brand’s dedication to exceptional quality and timeless design.

Everlane hand-makes all of its bags using high-quality Italian leather in Tuscany, Italy. The result is a premium tote bag built with durability in mind. Many users note that after continued use, the once-stiff leather becomes more flexible, without losing its structure.

“It's a beautiful bag and works well for work, just to carry around town on a day off and also would work as a good overnight bag. The leather is beautiful and in my opinion, just get better the more you use it,” wrote one customer who says this is the only bag they own.

So whether you’re on the search for the perfect bag to wear this fall or simply want to upgrade your current bag situation, consider Everlane’s Day Market Tote.

“I genuinely adore this bag! It is light and soft but very strong and well made. I can carry my life in there, including my work laptop which has made things much easier,” raved an Everlane fan. “I no longer have to carry my purse and laptop bag and giant water bottle in three different bags. It’s a lifesaver and it’s stylish and classic.”

Finally, a stylish and practical bag.
