The WOC or wallet on a chain seems to be something people either love or they hate.
Do you like to carry everything with you at all times? Then maybe the WOC isn’t for you.
WOC’s are not handbag replacements. A wallet on a chain probably won’t be your be-all-end-all bag. Whether it’s a bottle of hand-sanitizer or your most loved compact, you’re going to find something you want to bring with you that a wallet on a chain isn’t going to carry.
Now, that being said, WOCs have become such a staple fashion accessory that you can find them in all different shapes and sizes. From larger sizes, like the Chanel WOC that brought the style into fashion, to my Prada WOC (or even smaller versions), your choices when it comes to a wallet on the chain have never been more endless.
But the question I found myself asking before the purchase, and the question many of you are probably asking yourself is: is a wallet on a chain worth it?
For me, it was. And here’s why:
Yes, this is a wallet. No, it won’t fit all of your things. But it will, on occasion, have the multi-tasking ability to be both. Are you carrying a work tote but wanting to run out for a lunch meeting? Grab your WOC. Going on an overnight trip and don’t want to worry about what bag you’ll bring if you go out? Bring your WOC.
I don’t know about you, but I hate carrying a heavy bag. I know a lot of us put up with it for style, and I’m all for a handbag completing an outfit, but there is just no way you are going to see me lugging around a 10-lb bag when I’m in the city for 8 hours. My WOC, on the other hand, is so light sometimes I literally forget I’m wearing it.
As much as I adore my handbags and as much as I love choosing the exact right one for each outfit, there is something really great about being able to take the decision out of the choice. When I’m just running to the grocery store, or taking my dog for a walk, I do not want to deliberate on what bag to choose. The WOC makes that choice for me. I don’t need to think about this bag. I just grab it and go.
What WOC would you choose?
