In a world where Apple Pay and credit cards reign supreme, the days of big, bulky wallets are long behind us. Like all things pint-sized (think: Jacquemus’ now-iconic Le Chiquito mini tote, and the '90s-inspired baguette bags that are all over social media), small wallets are once again all the rage. Choosing the best small wallet for you will mostly come down to your preferences in terms of aesthetics and materials, but whether you go for a compact card holder or a wallet proper, it should be slim enough to slide into a jacket pocket or small bag, while still being spacious enough to hold a few credit cards and some cash.

Ahead, you’ll find 10 stylish mini wallets to choose from, from classic leather bifolds to statement-making card cases and decorative wallets-on-chains that you can attach to your keys. All of the wallets featured here are tiny enough to fit into a small bag, but some have added features that make them noteworthy, like RFID-blocking technology, coin purses, or expandable, accordion-style designs.

Scroll on to shop the best small wallets for women, then don’t forget to check out these super-cute small bags, if you can’t get enough of all things micro.


A Classic Black Leather Wallet From Coach

This simple bifold wallet from Coach has plenty of slots for all your credit cards and IDs (including a handy clear ID slot), but the slim, 5 by 3.5 inch design slips easily into a pocket or tiny purse. It snaps closed for security, and is made from gorgeous textured leather that will develop a patina over time, so it'll only get better-looking with age. An iconic silver Coach logo at the clasp is the only adornment.

A Slim Bifold Wallet That Comes In So Many Colors

If you’re looking for a cute bifold wallet, this one comes in 28 colors and leather finishes, so you’re sure to find one that matches your preferred aesthetic.

This Statement-Making Color-Block Wallet

This cool color-block design of this wallet makes a big statement, but it’s not merely decorative; it’s practical, too. You’ll find a small zippered coin pouch on the back, and inside there are plenty of card slots, a handy clear ID sleeve, and a full-length bill section, and it’s equipped with RFID-blocking technology. Made of real leather, the wallet flap is accented with zippered trim for a dash of edge, and it clocks in at a perfectly compact 3.5 by 4 inches. Choose from 18 colorways — but this wallet looks far more expensive than it is, so you just may need to pick up a couple.

A Tiny Coach Wallet That You Can Attach To Your Keys

A classic Coach wallet is a great piece to have, and at just over 4 inches by 3 inches, this card case is small and lightweight enough to fit into your pants' pocket, or hang off your keys, thanks to the attached key ring. It has a convenient clear ID window on one side, and the cream crossgrain leather exterior features Coach's iconic logo in luxe gold. Two slots keep your most-used credit cards within easy reach, and the zip-top pocket has just enough room for some coins or extra cards.

A Faux-Leather Wallet That Can Replace A Small Bag

This wallet can easily replace a small clutch or bag thanks to its convenient wrist loop, but since it measures about 5 by 3 inches, it won’t take up space in your purse if you do choose to wear one. Six card slots, a full-length bill slot, and a coin pocket offer ample room for your essentials. The metal buckle keeps the flap securely closed, and the faux leather material is a great ethical option that feels super soft to the touch. The wallet comes in a handful of on-trend colors, like sage green, French blue, and the mauve above that stand out in the best way against neutral-toned outfits and bags.
