If you’re sick of replacing your cheap wallet every few years as it wears out, a designer fashion wallet for women is a fantastic option. When you choose a designer, you’re choosing better craftsmanship, high-end materials and some really unique styles to choose from. But shopping around and actually buying a luxury wallet isn’t easy.
There are a lot of options out there, so before you start shopping, consider the following.
Think About the Material
When you’re paying designer prices, you will want designer materials. This means leather. Leather is durable, bacteria-resistant, water-resistant, odour resistant and it does all this naturally. So it’s a fantastic option for a wallet as it ages finely as time goes on, giving your wallet a lived-in look. As a bonus, the finest leather lasts so long it can be handed down through generations.
Think About the Brand
Not all designer brands are created equal. Some don’t even offer leather options anymore, so the price you’re paying for is largely the branding, not even the wallet itself. With this in mind, choose reputable brands. The better known the brand is, the better the resale value is likely to be. One great example is LV Australia with its signature monogrammed leather.
Think About the Colour
Unlike a handbag, a wallet doesn’t need to be a colourful fashion statement. Of course, if that’s your style, go for it. But the reality is that trendy prints and colours don’t have a lot of resale value outside of exclusive and rare options. So the best bet is to choose something timeless and classic. This doesn’t necessarily mean you’re stuck with neutrals as you can also find a lot of success with colours such as burgundy or green.
Think About Function
Wallets are essentially functional items. So, it doesn’t help if a designer wallet doesn’t actually function as a wallet. Surprisingly some designers have released micro wallets as a part of their artistic revenue, but these items aren’t meant to be used. Take a look at the wallet and make sure it’s the right shape, size and fit for your belongings, your handbags and your daily life. By doing this, you can make sure you actually enjoy and use your purchase.
