Because Kat Typaldos is over schlepping a big bag around and we’re right there with her.
How much stuff do you lug around in your bag on a daily basis? And how much do you actually use? To be completely honest, most of the time, we don’t even know what’s in our handbags besides the most basic of necessities (wallet, keys, phone). So when Brooklyn-based stylist Kat Typaldos told us that the one thing she’s dying to buy is a chain wallet, both for its ’90s nostalgia aesthetic appeal and because she doesn’t want to carry a bag this winter, we totally understood. When you’re used to carrying a bag—tote, crossbody, backpack, even—there’s something amazingly freeing about going out without one. Forget all the excess stuff. Say it with us: Girls doing whatever the fuck they want in 2017.
“I am dying for one of these Sorelle x Kindall Almond chain wallets. I love the ’90s throwback—it reminds me of when I was a teenager and saved up my money for a sky-blue sparkle chain wallet from the Delia*s catalogue. It’s a more elevated and chic take on the skater vibe and it allows me to forfeit a purse all winter.”
Into it? Here are 9 more belt bags, key chain wallets, and cardholders that will free your hands (and your mind) all winter long.
