It’s often assumed that women need to have lots of space to fit the multitude of things that they are obliged to have with them at all times. And, for a while, we saw handbags and wallets becoming considerably large and getting a bit out of control. However, it was only a matter of time before elegant, minimalist designs made their way back to the imagination of mainstream designers. Today, there are so many creators doing a great job of producing beautiful pieces with clean lines for both men and women, and sometimes in strange and exotic materials like these metal wallets. It’s almost become too hard to choose. So, with a little handwringing, these are our 15 favourite Minimalist Wallets for Women.
1. Bellroy Card Pocket Women's Minimalist Wallet
Admittedly this pocketbook style zip wallet may not be for everybody, but it is super cute. It’s a sturdy little wallet made from gorgeous a leather, with the ability to hold up to 15 cards, tri-folded bills, and even some coins. A mighty little minimalist-gem, it fits easily in almost any sized purse or evening clutch. If you prefer to go sans-bag, this stylish little card keeper will fit in most pant pockets, even those little ones on most women’s’ jeans.
Available in six gorgeous leather colours including black, navy, green, caramel, red earth, and tan.

2. Toughergun Womens Multi-Card Wallet
So you want something sleek, elegant, and able to carry a lot without looking like it’s bursting at the seams. The Toughergun Womens Multi-Card Wallet may be just what you’re looking for. It has pockets for 20 cards, comes in one of 15 colours, and is made of genuine leather. Not to mention, it’s also RFID blocking. More than just holding a lot of cards, this wonderfully minimalist wallet also has two slide-in pockets, one with a zipper and one without.

3. Fossil Logan Small RFID Bifold
The lovely thing about Fossil is they always have a stunning, simple design, and their products are invariably high-quality. The Logan Small doesn’t disappoint. It’s available in nine colours, but the Blue Glow is far-and-away our favourite. This little wonder is a bifold that holds cash, has five credit card slots, and a window pocket for your ID. Although, we all know that obnoxious bouncer is going to make you pull it out every single time. There’s also a small change pocket on the back, big enough to keep a bit of coin, but not so big that it ruins the look or weighs down your bag.

4. Kate Spade New York Slim Eva Leather Bifold Wallet
The thing about Kate Spade is that everything they make seems to have an elegant simplicity to it. Perfect in pink, the Slim Eva Leather Bifold will hold 14 cards and has a lovely little ID window on one side. It also has two long sleeves for flat bills, and yet it still fits easily into most small bags.

5. Echo Clutch Wallet
One of the more exciting brands we’ve come across of late is Paperwallet. It’s not exactly what you think. They’re not made of the run of the mill paper, but Tyvek®, a high-density polyethylene fibre that is quite elastic, waterproof, long-lasting and eco-friendly. Based on the basic principles of minimalist origami, the Phased Clutch is sleek and incredibly stylish. And, with Paperwallet’s commitment to working with artists, each of their collections takes on its own distinct feel.

7. Matte Parliament
This ultra-modern minimalist treasure is gorgeous. Not only is it dirt-proof but additionally water-resistant. The matte leather finish also provides a better grip for when you’re trying to juggle wallet, cellphone, keys, and the lot. And of course, Ekster’s signature quick card access will also keep you from fumbling for cards while you’re juggling. However, one of the coolest features is their card tracker that will make your wallet unlosable anywhere in the world. Even if this is not the wallet for you, it may be worth picking yourself up a card tracker. Even if it’s just under the couch, losing your wallet is always the worst!

9. Herschel - Thomas Wallet
Herschel has been making some really functional and yet stylish bags, jackets, and yes, wallets for some time now. The minimalist favourite is definitely the Thomas. One of the nicest in their collection, it comes in a wide array of colours and yet never loses sight of its simple elegance. Even when you choose the Painted Floral (our favourite), it doesn’t relinquish any of its minimalist credibility.

10. Tentree - Cork Zipper Wallet
Minimalist charm and environmentally friendly, this impressive zipper wallet by Tentree is brilliant. As cork can be harvested without cutting down the tree, this wallet is naturally sustainable.

This list would not be complete without something from Coach. Beautifully crafted in smooth, refined calf leather, the aptly named Skinny Wallet conceals a well-organized interior. Complete with 15 card slots, three full-length bill compartments, an ID window, and a zippered coin pocket it still maintains a perfectly slender silhouette. While it does come in a variety of colours, there is just something right about the classic black, with light gold trim.

The entire wallet zips up and is large enough to fit even the biggest of smartphones on the market including the largest iPhones and Android-based devices. With the attachable wrist strap and elegant styling, this piece is ideal as a clutch for a paired down evening out but also fit’s nicely in a larger handbag.
