We give a lot of love to luxury handbags—and with good reason—but we should never overlook the compact style powerhouses that are luxury wallets! The wallet is like the heart of the inner world of the handbag, and it deserves as much respect.

Even if you don’t get into collecting business cards, receipts, and photos of your kids and grandkids in these folded vessels, you likely at least keep your money and important identifiers in your wallet, so, like buying a good handbag, elevating the space in which you keep it all together…can elevate the way you keep it all together.

The perfect wallet can be an elegant finishing touch to or a first step in your designer ensemble. We’ve compiled some inspiration and recommendations for either and everything in between!

The Wallet as a Gateway

Like WHO WHAT WEAR says, a designer wallet can be a more accessible start into the land of luxury when compared to their more expensive handbag counterparts.

Have you, like so many others, always dreamed of owning a Chanel Classic Flap, perhaps? Picking up the right Chanel wallet can get that iconic look into your hands way sooner and not set you too far back from your original goal. This Chanel Camellia Yen Lambskin Wallet, for instance, is only $199.99.

It has to be good financial juju to invest in the place you keep your money.

Burberry is also a great place to start in the designer way. It’s classic, recognizable, and within easier reach than many others. High Snobiety lists a couple of Burberry wallets within their top 10 list. We recommend this Burberry Bifold Wallet Haymarket Check.

The Perfect Match

Beauty is an inside job, right? So when you’ve got a beautiful, more visible accessory like the perfect Hermès Kelly, Prada Saffiano, Louis Vuitton Monogram or Gucci Marmont handbag , don’t you want what’s inside the bag to be as beautiful as the outside? There’s a special kind of thrill in reaching into your bag, letting your hand close around the elegant, smaller companion to your favorite accessory, and pulling it out like the classy boss babe that you are.

The Secret Weapon

Then again, there are benefits to not matching, too. A good wallet can be a bold style statement that only comes out when necessary, then slips back into the darkness like a dream.

One Thing to Hold it All

Wallets are functional items, and they have to withstand a lot of use. Having the craftsmanship of a luxury wallet on your side means the accessory holding your everyday valuables will be built to last. We especially love the zip-around wallets to keep all those precious bits and pieces secure. See these zippy examples from Louis Vuitton, Gucci, and Chanel.

Always With You

The Louis Vuitton Pochette Cles is ideal for the bag changes of a life on the go. It's a personal favorite of Keeks' founder. "Whether I'm using my diaper bag, Neverfull, or an evening bag, it's ALWAYS with me."
