The 25 Best Minimalist Wallets to Buy Right Now

Michael Caloca / ONE37pm

Earlier this year, my boyfriend and I visited Boston. As we were leaving the hotel, I noticed that he put his wallet in his pocket and it just looked heavy. I offered to carry it in my purse but when he tried to put it in my bag, we realized it didn’t fit. This problem could have been pretty easily resolved had he possessed a more minimal wallet, and not something that was bulging at the seams. I’m not even sure what was in his bulbous one (receipts? coins? Another smaller wallet?) but the next day, a hunt for a better, sleeker wallet began.  

1. Travelambo Front Pocket Minimalist Leather

With over 60,000 reviews, this wallet has 11 slots for cards (whoa, baby) and a money clip so you can also carry around cash—always a good option. Reviewers say that it’s easy to double up cards in the slots (for a grand total of 22 cards!) and although it might be hard to get the cards out at first, it gets a lot easier once the wallet is broken in a bit. With multiple colorways and stylish designs, you can’t go wrong with any selection.

Maybe you’re looking for something basic. Like... real, real no-frills. This Nike wallet just gives you what you need: a bill pocket, six storage slots, and an external zipper pocket. That’s it.

6. Herschel Roy RFID

Screen Shot 2021 11 01 at 2.38.15 PM

This is another great option if you’re looking for something simple. Reviewers say this Herschel RFID wallet is good quality at a good price, but not ideal if you want to carry around any coins. It comes in 28 different designs, many ranging from camo to floral print to tie-dye, but also offers single color crosshatch if you don’t want to get too crazy.

7. Coach Signature Canvas 3-in-1

Screen Shot 2021 11 01 at 2.39.41 PM

Amazon recommended this as “Best Design” and it’s easy to see why. It’s signature all-over-print and the quality canvas material make this wallet a stand out, and the blue and white color scheme are minimal without being boring. It comes with a full length compartment for cash (nice!) as well as 8 credit card slots, and removable insert. One reviewer was even impressed with how well it holds up: after dropping it in a lake, it still looks new.

8. Fossil Andrew Card Zip Case

So there are many colorways and designs here, but this one was clearly the funniest. Made with 100% leather, this eco-friendly card case has 3 credit card slots, 1 magnet money clip, and a zipper top. And yes, the card says “What’s the Password?”

9. Timberland Blix Slimfold

Screen Shot 2021 11 01 at 2.43.24 PM

Timberland prides itself on their superior stitching, their leather products, and their sleek-yet-rugged aesthetic, and this wallet is no different. It’s thin enough to carry in jeans or dress pants, offers space for 3 credit cards, an ID window, and two slip pockets, and holds up after years of usage. One reviewer was even left in awe at how nice her partner’s wallet looks after 4 years, especially since “he is not super careful about taking care of things.”

10. Molywoo Personalized Pocket Wallet

Now this is a cool idea. Not only is this wallet great for functionality, but it can be engraved with a custom photo on the front and a message on the back. It’s constructed out of high quality PU leather and has a snap button to keep your cards secure, but the personalization makes this an incredibly thoughtful gift for anyone.

For the person who loves the outdoors or just likes the aesthetic of it, this selection from Mountain Voyage is made from recycled walnut wood. Smaller than your smartphone, it still lets you carry 1-12 cards and the money clip is removable, which is a unique feature. Reviewers call this “the best wallet on the market” and “a game changer.”

14. Buffway Credit Card Holder

Screen Shot 2021 11 01 at 4.32.23 PM

This extra slim selection manages to fit in 6 cards and provide RFID blocking technology, but it’s the soft leather and clean stitching that makes this a must-have. Reviewers say it’s great for cards, but they struggle with fitting in any cash, so choose another option if you prefer having bills on you at all times.

I am assuming this is the wallet that Frank Sinatra would carry if he was around today; it’s cool, it’s classy, and it looks like money is no object, all for $40. It’s made of high quality leather and in multiple colorways, from Malbec to Whiskey to Jet Top Stitch (yeah, I thought we had a theme going, too.)  

22. Black Gucci Signature Card Case

Screen Shot 2021 11 01 at 3.43.43 PM

If you’re going to do simple, you might as well do simple in style.  While the 4 card slots lend itself to only carrying what’s absolutely necessary, why would you want to carry around anything else when you have this bad boy in your pocket? This super sleek card case is constructed with debossed Gucci Signature leather, it has the instantly recognizable all over logo print, and a metal logo detail once more for good measure.
