Back in college, wristlets were all the rage. I mean, in all reality, they were perfect for a night out bar hopping or heading to a house party. Wristlets are large enough to fit your credit cards, ID, some cash, and your house keys while being compact enough that you didn’t have to worry about ruining it in a crowded bar or at a rowdy party. But, is there a age cut-off with wristlets? Personally, I haven’t toted one around since college, but that doesn’t mean you can’t. Take for example, the Kenneth Cole New York Tabloid Wristlet. This is the kind of wristlet I could see many different age groups sporting. The black wristlet is made of leather, holds your credit cards, money, cell phone and even a cell phone (if it’s not too bulky). And as to be expected, there is a wrist strap; pretty much a no brainer, huh? I like the top flap with magnetic closure and the top zip closure. I think this wristlet is well crafted and overall has a nice look and feel to it. However, I am still stuck on if I would use a wristlet at this point in my life. To be honest, I think at this point in my life, I would grab a clutch as I run out the door before I would grab a wristlet. Yet, there are many occasions where a wristlet might be the best option for you. Buy through Zappos for $148.

    I like the all black palette. These are very practical for a quick run out of the house without the purse.
    I need to get some more.

    In praise of wristlets… much harder to drop than a clutch when you’re going for it on the dance floor!

    I have three, and if I didn’t already have a beautiful flat black leather one from Burberry this would have been a contender.
