With summertime here, outfits are now on the lighter side. Coats and jackets are left hanging on the wardrobe rail and that means wallets comprising essential cards and coins have to be carried via pants. However, overloading pant pockets can look ridiculous, and it's important to own a wallet or cardholder that is anything but bulky.
When talking wallets, it's easy to let the mind dwell on that hideous velcro iteration you had back in high school. Luckily, though, our selection is far removed from such accessories. A host of luxury brands, from Acne Studios to Fendi, have included sleek leather wallets and cardholders in their collections this year, and we've picked out some of the very best on offer right now.

Acne Studios may be best known for its unorthodox takes on classics, but this pink cardholder shoots straight. A classic leather construction features silver-foil branding and that's where the detailing ends.
This snakeskin-style cardholder from Balenciaga is a real pocket rocket: small but very powerful.
Loewe's ongoing partnership with Paula's Ibiza always brings a bit of playful color into your life. This watermelon-disguised leather wallet is a prime example.
Burberry has placed a focus on the Horseferry logo this season. The address and sometimes coordinates of Burberry's HQ make a simple but punchy detail to small accessories in particular.
While others make prints and logos their signatures, Bottega Veneta looks to the Intrecciato weave as its mark. This bright blue number features the woven texture to the front leather panel.
Maison Margiela's Four Stitches Cardholder proves that branding doesn't need to be in your face to leave its mark.
Old-school Gucci style. We love to see it. High-quality leather detailed with a metal GG logo to the bottom right.
You know those items that are just so beautiful you have to hold them? Yeah, that.
Fendi's usually gridlocked monogram gets a wavey makeover for the Vertigo Cardholder.
Dior is the talk of the town after collaborating with Travis Scott. It's still doing the simple things well, too, as proven by this jacquard, monogrammed cardholder.
