There’s a common misconception that women use big and bulky wallets. While there is some truth to that statement, the reality is that women are starting to replace their wallets for something that’s less “in-your-face”. Minimalist wallets are in again, so if you haven’t gotten yourself or the woman in your life a brand-new wallet, it’s time to check out the best minimalist wallets for women.
Benefits of Minimalist Women’s Wallets
The truth is that handbags are becoming tinier. Have you even seen the Jacquemus Le Chiquito? Sooner or later, you’ll have to trade your bulky bi-fold wallet for something more minimal. If you’re struggling to switch to a smaller wallet, think about all of the things you can do:
- Go bag-free. Pants with pockets are a rare find. If you find them, you better take advantage of the ability to go bag-free. Simply slip your minimalist women’s wallet into your pocket and you’re good to go.
- Save more money. Small wallets teach you to stick to the essentials. Since you’ll be carrying only a couple of cards, you won’t be tempted to go on a spur-of-the-moment shopping spree.
- Use small handbags. Is there a handbag that you’ve always wanted to buy, but you decided not to because it would be impossible to fit your bi-fold wallet in there? Well, with a slim wallet, you can buy whatever bag you want.
- Wear what you want. Minimalist wallets for women often come in classic colors such as beige, black, and gray. These colors won’t clash with your outfit, which means you can wear whatever you want.
What to Look for in a Minimalist Wallet for Women
When shopping for a slim, minimalist leather wallet, there are some things you should consider. These include:
- Compartments. If you carry more cash than cards, you’ll need a leather wallet with a spacious cash pocket. If you pay with plastic, a card case should suffice.
- Material. Do you want a fancy, full-grain leather wallet? Or do you want something with texture such as suede? There are different types of leather, so be sure to choose the one that suits your style the best.
- Fold. If you want crease-free cash, choose a long, minimalist leather wallet. If you’re fine with the fold, opt for a bi-fold or a tri-fold wallet.
You should also consider buying a wallet with RFID-blocking technology. This prevents your credit card information from being illegally copied.
Best Minimalist Wallets for Women
Ready to switch to a slim, minimalist leather wallet? Here are a few of our favorites:
#1 Kate Space Spencer Cardholder
Not all minimalist wallets come in classic colors, but they do come in classy colors. An example is the Kate Spade Spencer Cardholder. It comes in pastel colors such as Tutu Pink and Teacup Blue, and boasts Kate Spade’s signature spade lining. With four card slots and one pocket for coins, it’s a sophisticated wallet for everyday use.
#2 Coach Skinny Wallet
The Coach Skinny Wallet is exactly what it claims it is: skinny. Crafted from calf leather, this wallet is spacious enough to store your cards and cash, but it retains its slim silhouette so you can easily slip it into your purse. A zippered pocket lets you separate your coins so as not to scratch your cards. Best of all, it comes in eye-catching as well as classic colors.
#3 Travelambo Women’s Wallet
The Travelambo Women’s Wallet is a bi-fold wallet that can, surprisingly, carry sixteen cards. While it can hold cash, it was clearly designed for people who pay with plastic. It’s incredibly slim so it can smoothly slide into your pockets… if you can find a dress with pockets. What we love about it is that it comes in thirty (yes, three-zero) colors. You’ll be tempted to collect them all.
#4 Trayvax Roam Mini Clutch
Don’t you wish you could use your wallet as a clutch? With the Trayvax Roam Mini Clutch, you totally can. Crafted from fine leather, it features a spacious compartment for your coins and cash, as well as card slots for your credit cards, debit cards, driver’s license, and more. It also comes with a strap so can wear it across your shoulders or as a wristlet. It’s accented by snap closures that are strategically placed to protect your stuff.
