It seems everyone is on the hunt for the perfect wallet, we’ve received numerous emails from readers who can’t seem to find one that fits all of their needs. I’ve gone through half a dozen wallets myself in the last few years and my favorite is my Chanel long caviar leather wallet with separate compartments for foreign currency, checks, cash, and credit cards. Wallets are very personal as they contain our entire lives in them and they are used more than any other accessory so we want them to look pretty, be functional, and they need to be sturdy enough to stand the abuse they are put through on a daily basis! With that in mind, here are a few of the best choices online:
If you are looking for a wallet that will stand the changing styles of time, Tod’s is your answer. Kate long wallet has many useful compartments all zipped up so you won’t have little pieces of receipts and/or money hanging out. Tod’s wallets are just as well made as their bags so you can expect this wallet to last you for years but why would you want it to? It’s so boring to use the same wallet forever. $345 at eLuxury
Chloe’s Red paddington wallet is trendy and fun, I absolutely love the miniature padlock and outer compartment, you can hide valuables that aren’t used often in there. It’s also cute enough to double as a clutch without the hefty Paddington bag price tag. Let’s just hope it doesn’t weigh a ton. $590 at Net-a-Porter
Bottega Veneta French flap wallet (4.5 inches long) or Bottega woven wallet (8 inches long). I love the signature Bottega woven leather on the wallets, as for the size, I prefer the longer wallets because I have so many things that need to be with me at all times! $410 – $530 at Saks.com
Louis Vuitton French purse wallet is a good basic in its classic Epi leather, durable and scratch proof, this is a good choice if you throw your wallet around alot. The coin purse is on the backside rather than inside, which comes in handy if you like to lug around lots of coins but there are only 4 credit card slots, which is actually plenty, how many credit cards do you need to carry around anyway? $635 at eLuxury
If your style is sleek and chic, Prada’s Continental wallet is perfect for you. How fabulous is the metallic leather? I have a Prada checkbook made of the same leather from college and it still looks new. $385 at Saks.
