The Best Women’s Wallets for 2018

PURSE | WALLET | CUFF

I’m going to tell you a secret that is not so secret…I have an addiction to all things organizational. If they’re cute, they easily go up 5,439 points and it’s inevitable that they soon end up in my closet or my purse or my pantry. But my favorite of these items?

Wallets.

You’ve heard me mention them a bazillion times and it’s because I’m always finding one cuter or more resourceful than the last! And it helps that you guys are always asking because then I get to use the excuse that “it’s for research!” And if I don’t find you all the best wallets, who will?

I would never do that to you. We’re friends. And friends don’t let friends have ugly wallets.

But before I jump into my top 12 tested and true wallets for you, I thought I’d break down the different types of wallets for you!

RED CARD CASE | YELLOW CLUTCH | BLACK HOBO

First off, let’s talk about the different types of wallets:

  • Accordion Wallet: An accordion wallet conveniently folds flat but opens to be able to accommodate a larger selection of items than you might expect. This is great for women who need to carry a lot of cards but don’t want too much bulk.
  • Clutch Wallet: Clutch wallets, or mini-purses, can be carried by themselves and are typically more decorative than your normal wallet because they can be carried alone without a larger tote or purse. They also sometimes sport a wrist-strap or handle. And these are really meant to carry just the essentials!
  • Coin Wallet: A coin wallet features a pouch designed to hold coins. If you’re that woman that always seems to have a million coins on her at all times, a separate coin purse from your wallet might be your best option. And if you’re getting a wallet with a coin pouch, make sure it zips closed! You don’t want to be that girl who drops coins every time she opens her wallet!
  • ID Wallet: An ID wallet is a small and thin wallet that is designed to only hold a small number of cards and maybe some cash. This is a good option for anyone who wants to avoid a bulky wallet. The beauty of this type of wallet is that it can seamlessly fit into your smaller or larger purses – I’ve got 2 or 3 of these linked below that I think you’ll love!
  • Travel Wallet: Travel wallets feature sections that allow you to carry more while traveling, such as your passport. If you are a world traveler, this type of wallet is a must-have.
  • Bill Fold Wallet: A billfold wallet is any wallet that holds a section for bills that folds. I’ve never purchased one of these and I don’t know that I would! I love a wallet that does a bit more for me! But this is a great option for those that just carry cash. I keep on having flashbacks to those velcro wallets from my early childhood – haha!

A hair smaller than the Lauren, this waller is two-sided and my option for traveling lighter than a normal wallet.

  1. Do you have a pick for a family travel wallet, one that can carry multiple passports (4 passports or more). I purchased one off amazon recently and am not happy with it at all.
