When it comes to wallets, women like to keep it classic, enduring, and trend-proof. Unlike bags, shoes, and clothes, it’s not something to frequently change up as it is often kept inside a purse and almost never seen. That’s why it’s worth it to invest in a designer wallet—because you’re sure to keep it for a long time (if not through generations!)
