With summertime approaching, outfits are 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 Church's to Burberry, 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.

COMME des GARÇONS' bold leather wallets tick all the boxes. One no-nonsense zipped pocket has enough space for pesky coins as well as cards, and the high-quality red leather is stamped with the CdG seal of approval in bold, white letters.

Jacquemus

Buy at Browns

Jacquemus is arguably more famed for its accessories than its actual clothing. Just look at the tiny, meme-worthy bags that swept Instagram on release. The Le Porte Wallet, though, is highly effective with a leather handle and an interior housing a buttoned coin pocket as well as a zipped compartment.

Burberry
