Everyone needs some kind of wallet to carry their cash, cards, identification, and other essentials for going about everyday life. A wallet tends to fall into one of three categories: a plain black or dark brown number, the same thing but in a brighter color, and finally—a “cool wallet.” The third category is the type that interests me the most, because who says that wallets have to be boring and plain? Sure, plain wallets get the job done, but when you like to express yourself with your accessory choices, a cool wallet is a perfect choice. If you haven’t given cool wallets a chance yet, take a look at the following reasons why I love them—and so should you!
They can be anything
What exactly makes a “cool wallet”? You might get different answers from different people, but in my personal experience, a cool wallet is any wallet that doesn’t fit in that box of generic looking, nondescript wallets. Cool wallets can be simply more interesting and well-designed than a standard wallet, or they can be pretty out there! They can be a standard looking wallet with an interesting and colorful pattern instead of plain black leather; and they can be a wallet shaped like a piece of toast. They can be designed to look like a game system controller, and they can be shaped like a book. There’s really no limit to what cool wallets can look like, which is why they have become so popular.
They’re perfect for any budget
Wallets of any style come in a range of different prices, and this holds true for cooler wallets as well. You can find unique and interesting wallets at any price, from under $10 to several hundred dollars, depending on the brand, materials, and some other factors as well. But you don’t need to break the bank or your budget to get a cool wallet, which is another reason why I find them preferable to regular wallets. In fact, the reasonable prices on so many of them has allowed me to start a small collection, so I can choose a different wallet for different days or special events!
They let you express yourself
Most people love to express their interests in some way, and expressing yourself through your accessories—whether it’s a band t-shirt, a scarf mimed after your favorite book character, or a wallet with a quote from your favorite movie on it—is a great and often inexpensive way to do so. Wallets with cool designs are a great way to express your hobbies or interests or favorite things, or just express your own personal aesthetic and style through a wallet design that reflects that aesthetic. And if you’re the type to love conversation starters, wallets—which have to be taken out when you’re paying for things on a regular basis—are a great way to strike up a conversation with someone who has similar interests or just wants to compliment your wallet.2017-03-07
