I have a question about wallets. I know you carry a long wallet, but I’m searching for something smaller. The smaller the better, really. I would love some ideas on stylish options in the under-$150 or so price range.
Thank you, hope that you can help, Lizzie
When buying a wallet you have three things you need to decide: size, material and color. I like a larger leather wallet in a metallic or bright color for versatility. Metallics and bright colors can be carried with almost any neutral handbag without clashing.
If you want something smaller, you can choose a compact version of a fold-over or zip wallet or you can go all-in on small with a card wallet. Here are some options.
Kate Spade Cedar Street Wallet ($78)
This gold wallet from Kate Spade would be my number one choice for a small wallet. It has a few credit card slots, an ID window and a small zip pocket on the rear. Other options include this bright, zip-up Barney’s New York wallet that comes in several colors and this Lodis fold-over wallet that has a classic look.
Need more storage in a small package? This Michael Kors Saffiano wallet has several card slots and an internal zip pocket.
If I’m carrying my laptop bag, I keep things more streamlined with an Everlane card holder (I love the dark plum). J.Crew’s magic wallet is also a good option because it has space inside for a little bit of cash. They make it in a metallic combo ($15!) and an embossed python. I also like this forest green card holder from Dorothy Perkins for $6.
