Savvy shoppers will know that you can save up to 40 per cent on styles from top brands like Kate Spade, Stuart Weitzman, and more. One of the most popular Anniversary Sale designer finds is the selection of Longchamp's versatile backpacks and totes.

This year's sale is still going strong, but you'll want to snag the Le Pliage Expandable Tote for nearly 25 per cent off before the sale ends on July 31.

Inspired by the Japanese art of origami, this folding tote bag has been one of Longchamp's most popular designs for nearly 30 years. While the original Le Pliage bag will always have a soft spot in our hearts, this updated version with an expanding design is perfect for those looking for a little extra storage.

Made from lightweight yet durable nylon with leather accents, the Le Pliage Expandable Tote is an easy choice for running errands around town or heading for a day at the office.

A zippered inset lets you expand the bag in a flash for added storage, and when it's not in use it conveniently folds up to roughly the size of a paperback book.

Why shoppers love it

This tote bag has earned an impressive reputation among Nordstrom shoppers, who have rated it a near-perfect 4.8 stars. Hundreds of shoppers have raved about its versatile expanding insert, as well as it's space-saving design.

"[This] is my favourite and most used Longchamp bag," shared one shopper. "Unexpanded it is about the size of the medium tote — perfect for everyday use. Expanded it is noticeably larger than the large tote, making it perfect for carrying extras when traveling, my work laptop, or to take all my essentials to the beach."

"Hands down it’s an excellent bag to have...super lightweight, easy to wear, easy to pack," added another.

Frequent travellers will also be happy to know that this bag is "perfect as a carry on travel bag," as it fits well underneath plane seats and easily sits on top of luggage.

"Great to bring as a carry on for trips and then can expand bag when you bring purchases/souvenirs back home," suggested one reviewer.

While this tote bag is spacious enough for your daily essentials (and more!), some reviewers complained that "you can’t find anything" once it's fully expanded.

The verdict

Those looking for a tote that does double duty will want to consider this chic Longchamp bag. Its convertible shape lets you choose just how much space you need, making it a great choice for beach trips, travelling, or a day at the office.

Since the bag only has a single large compartment, you may just want to invest in some smaller pouches or a bag organizer to make it easy to find exactly what you're looking for inside.
