Wallets are more than just cash carriers — they’re a symbol of your own personal look. When you whip your wallet out to pay at a classy restaurant or a fashionable retailer, do you really want the sense of shame that accompanies (and should accompany) an overstuffed, raggedy cash stash? No. Ditch your old spine-misaligning wallet for something sleeker, slimmer, and far more stylish.

To help you get started on your search — and keep you from blowing all your money on one accessory — we’ve assembled the best wallets under $200 below.
