When you’re constantly on the go, running between the office, the grocery store, daycare and appointments, a tiny purse or crossbody bag just won’t cut it. You need something stylish yet practical that will fit all of your essentials.

Cue the trusty tote bag. Offering plenty of room to house everything you need for the day, the tote is both classic and versatile — and works for pretty much every situation.

Take the Longchamp Large Le Pliage Tote, for example. If you ask shoppers, the bag, which is available at Nordstrom ($190 CAD — shop here/$145 USD — shop here), is summer's "must-have" tote.

The details

Smooth nylon and embossed leather trim make this sleek and spacious bag a great everyday choice. The water-resistant finish means you don't have to worry about rainy days, and the pockets are an organizational must-have — in the main compartment you can fit a tablet, laptop or wallet, and the side pocket is perfect for smaller items like lipstick or keys.

This durable bag has a flat bottom to help it stand on its own, and loses with a gold zipper and a leather snap. Available in black, red, brown, white, navy and, in the U.S., pink, the versatile and elegant tote is great for pretty much any situation from the office to the beach.

What shoppers are saying

Nordstrom shoppers have given the Longchamp tote top marks. This "essential" bag has earned a 4.7-star rating from more than 1,700 reviews for its spaciousness and lightweight material.

"I bought this tote because I needed a big enough bag for work. It's big enough that I can carry a few pairs of sunglasses, lunch, a notebook and makeup. I really like that there's so much room!" raves one shopper. "Also, the style goes with pretty much any outfit and it's really durable."

"I love this bag! It's lightweight with plenty of space. I use it as an everyday bag, but it would be great for any occasion," adds another.

"This bag is light and trendy, simple, essential and functional," writes another reviewer. "It has made my journeys to work so much more bearable...I need to take a lot with me — makeup bag, lunch, wallet, hair products, a sweater, sometimes socks or tights too. This bag fits all of it, no problem. No trying to shove things around or carry three separate bags."

Shoppers also say that this bag is "particularly perfect" for travelling.

"This is the best travel bag I've owned! It's perfect for short overnight trips to pack or a great lightweight carry on bag for a long vacation. The low weight is excellent giving you the ability to load it up," adds another shopper.

"I love it so much, and it's particularly perfect for travelling. It is the best carry-on size and can fit so many travel essentials. I love that the fabric is water resistant so that I can wipe it clean if anything spills. I also love that the bag has a zipper closure to keep things from flying around during turbulence," writes another.
