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.
