A tote bag is a must-have for many, including myself — they're spacious and can be very chic if styled correctly. Meghan Markle is no stranger to the tote, and a particular Everlane one definitely has her approval.
The New Day Market Tote is back — and is better than ever. Meghan had the OG, and this new-and-improved version has a contemporary upgrade, making it extra dapper this time around.
At its $437 price point, this tote might feel like a splurge, but considering the quality, some may say it's a steal. Everlane's commitment to sustainable materials, along with its moral approach, timeless design and transparent prices, make it a brand worth investing in.

This tote might look like a fancy leather bag, but don't be fooled; it's actually crafted from a leather alternative.
Everlane uses a bio-based material — BioFabbrica Bio-Tex — which is essentially "leather" without the added environmental footprint.
These biomaterials are created from plant-based proteins and viscose, designed to mimic a *luxurious* leather feel.
The New Day Market Tote is seriously roomy, featuring a large interior that can easily accommodate a laptop, tablet and more. You can use it as an everyday bag for work or school when you need to carry your essentials and then some.
It comes in three fall-ready colours, and its sleek, minimalistic aesthetic will match almost everything, meaning it'll effortlessly complement anything in your wardrobe. This way, you won't have to stress when figuring out your accessories in the AM.
What people are saying
While this bag has been recognized by Meghan Markle herself, it has also become a cult favourite for many Everlane shoppers. Owners of the tote seem to love its minimalistic style and boast about the material.
One customer said, "I absolutely love this bag!" They continued, "I thought it'd be too big and bulky, but it's just perfect." They added that it "lays perfectly on my shoulder and fits everything."
Another shopper shared that it "is the lightest [...] bag I have ever used" and stated that "it looks very elegant, the [colour] looks very good [and does] not [fade] under the sun." They also noted that "its durability is awesome!"
A tote that looks classy, feels luxurious, fits a bunch and is Meghan Markle-approved surely gets my vote. The New Day Market Tote meets the mark for a sturdy and sustainable handbag, that's for certain. And it's perfect for fall.
However, if you're hesitant about the $437 price tag, you can always shop for alternative options within your budget.
