The wrist wallet, more commonly shortened and called a wristlet, is a smaller alternative to other more popular wallet styles. Wristlets can be flashy and showy, or they can be humble items that work well to accent and highlight other parts of your wardrobe. While wristlets aren't typically packed with features, they can be just as useful as other accessories. In the following, you'll learn more about where you can find some great wristlets.
You can find wristlets made of synthetic materials from some designers for less than $20, while top fashion houses make other wristlets that cost well over $500. The MICHAEL by Michael Kors Jet Set Large Wristlet is an intermediate option. Coming in a bold garden green, the Jet Set has a big tonal logo plate at the center, a patent leather body, dual adjustable straps, a top zip, exterior zip and interior wall pocket and a 8 inch width, 5 inch height and 1 inch depth. For a higher end wristlet, try out the Miu Miu Leather Wristlet Bag, which sells for $530 at Net A Porter, a leading women's fashion website. The Miu Miu is made of a bright violet leather and has a simple wrist strap, an internal pouch pocket, shiny gold hardware detailing, a beige suede lining and a noticeable Miu Miu embossed press lock on the front. Ann Taylor makes a more demure wristlet in the Horsebit Leather Wristlet. Retailing for $98, this wristlet comes in brown vicuna leather and has goldtone leather hardware, buckle detailing, tonal topstitching and a zip top closure. The Horsebit Leather Wristlet is fabric lined and measures 5 inches tall by 9 inches wide.
Net A Porter also carries a great black wristlet in the Chloe Wristlet Leather Clutch. Selling for $875, this wristlet has a black leather body, a plaque detailing wrist strap, the Chloe stamp on the exterior and interior, an oversized Chloe zip pull and a fully lined interior in nude leather. Net A Porter suggests wearing the lamb leather wristlet with a colorful skirt or dress for a study in contrasts. For a great wristlet that doesn't break the bank, think about the Kenneth Cole Reaction Elongated Clutch. Sold at Macy's, this one retails for $48 but now sells for half price. The bag is made of a python distressed pattern PVC and has a folder clousre, a distressed and glazed body, metal logo charms and multiple internal pockets and card slots. Saks Fifth Avenue sells another great black wristlet in the Jimmy Choo Piga Patent Leather Wristlet, which sells for $795. This slim leather wristlet has a flap and zip closure, goldtone detailing on the front and back, one inside open pocket and a fully lined body. The bag is also longer than most wristlets, measuring at 10 inches wide, 5 inches tall and 2 inches deep. See, there's a wristlet for every outfit, and one for nearly any bank account!
