20 Designer Card Holders You'll Buy Now and Use Forever

I don’t know about you, but these days, I don’t have much of a need for carrying around a full-size wallet. Maybe it’s because I’ve been opting to use cards over cash (a less germy option for today’s pandemic world), or perhaps it's because my handbags are getting miraculously smaller and smaller. Either way, I’m all about carrying just the essentials whenever I leave the house, which is why I’ve become a pretty big fan of the card holder.

Slim and compact in design, card holders are a genius solution for carrying around everything you need in your tiniest of bags on a night out—or the slimmest of workout leggings when heading to yoga or hitting the gym. And while they’re practical and functional, they can also be pretty. Of course, we have our favorite luxury designers to thank for that.

Ahead, I rounded up 20 of the best designer card holders that money can buy. From buttery-soft leather to fun textures, prints, and colors, there’s something for everyone. And for those who still need quarters for in-building laundry (ahem, me), some even feature a bonus coin compartment—very convenient. The best part? They’re much less of an investment than a designer wallet. You're welcome.
