It’s no secret that the Duchess of Sussex is a big fan of the ethical and sustainable brand Everlane

She’s been spotted in their chic basics for years, including during her first official appearance alongside Prince Harry at the 2017 Invictus Games in Toronto. She’s also worn a handful of items to high profile events like her 2019 royal tour of South Africa, and while promoting her guest-edited issue of British Vogue. 

For her appearance at the Invictus Games, Meghan brought along her trusty Day Market Tote, the bestselling bag that has received a near-perfect rating on thousands of customer reviews. 

Available in three neutral shades (black, cognac and taupe), this carry-all tote usually retails for $273 CAD. Thanks to Everlane’s current site-wide 25% off sale, it’s now available for $204 CAD.

What shoppers are saying

A fan favourite, shoppers are raving about the Day Tote’s versatility and functionality. It’s an ideal choice for commuting whether you’re heading to the office or to campus, since it has room for a laptop, water bottle, lunch bag and more. 

“I wanted to upgrade to a more professional tote bag for work and landed on the Day Market Tote after some research. So far it's been great! Fits my laptop and other work supplies with ease and is great quality for the price. Highly recommend!” reads one five-star review. 

“This bag is just gorgeous,” reads another. “Goes with everything, fits everything (including diapers for the little one on the weekend or a laptop for work), and still comfy on the shoulder. Very happy!”

The cons

While this bag is meant to fit a full day’s worth of essentials, that does mean it’s quite a large tote. If you have a petite frame or prefer something a little smaller for your needs, you may be better off with Everlane’s Day Square Tote instead. 

While roomy, both tote sizes do come with an open interior and only a small inner pocket to store your belongings. Staying organized may be a challenge if you’re prone to keeping a wide range of things with you, but it’s nothing that a couple of pouches wouldn’t solve. 

The verdict

If a sleek handbag that’s large enough to hold all of your daily essentials is what you’re after, it’s tough to find a better leather alternative than Everlane’s Day Market Tote. At $204, the price is decidedly lower than many similar styles that offer the same quality, even if it may be lacking a little bit in the organization department. 

If you’ve been hesitant to take the plunge on it, this rare sale might be the opportunity you’ve been waiting for. It’s only on for the week, so you’ll want to act fast to save on this bestselling tote.
