These days, I carry little more than my iPhone and a few cards when I step outside, often removing the aforementioned items from my larger bag when I have to run an errand. Designers must be looking to fill this niche--if you start searching for iPhone wallets, the options are endless! Here are a few particularly well designed options if, like me, you like to travel light.
HEX code wallet (pictured above)
The HEX code wallet mimics the look of a Moleskine and comes in a bunch of different colors, including gold, pink, purple, tan, teal, and black. It's a fun, gender-neutral option and offers a simple and sleek look. It's made of leather.
Kate Spade Stripe iPhone Wristlet
I love my Kate Spade iPhone case. For a case that is definitely more of a fashion accessory than most, it's remarkably well constructed and very protective. So I trust the Kate Spade Wristlet to be pretty well constructed, too. It comes in several styles and colors--shop the department stores to see all the options, though katespade.com has a few web exclusives.
Michael Kors iPhone Wristlet, Python
For something with a little more bling, try the Michael Kors iPhone Wristlet in Python. It comes in black, too, if you like something a little more subdued.
Hard Graft Phone Fold Wallet
If you're looking for something a little more masculine, check out Hard Graft's wallet. This style comes in the gray pictured above, or a rich classic leather. Both incorporate felt for added protection. It's even handmade in Italy.
If you really like to travel light, the callet is a simple rubberized case with two card slots to accommodate an ID and a credit/debit card. Its name is a little silly, but the thought of carrying so little is appealing.
Marc Jacobs Dreamy Neoprene Case
This case by Marc Jacobs isn't specifically marketed as an iPhone case, but it's just the right size to carry a phone and a few necessities. Best of all, it comes in several fun colors, including lime, parrot green, blue, and peony.
