There is no arguing that a good phone purse should hold your device securely, but we are of the mind that it should also act as a fashion accessory. Providing some extra storage for a few other essentials isn't a bad idea either. We tried to include a list of items that both shoppers looking for something basic or those seeking something more intricate could appreciate.
Smartphones only seem to be increasing in size these days, so we like that the Ranboo Gomen Multifunctional is large enough for the iPhone 11, and devices of a similar build. Its many storage pockets were a plus, too. The Gcepls Crossbody can also accommodate some hefty phones. We removed the M.Way Vertical, as it proved too much of a tight fit when holding phones donning large cases. The Hengwin Premium also struggled to accommodate big devices, so it, too, lost its place.
Since purses should be stylish as well as functional, we like the Seosto Womens Holder with its tassels and die-cut pattern, as well as the Minicat RFID Blocking Wallet with its sleek hardware and either faux suede or faux leather construction, depending on the model. Though attractive, the Goodhan Vintage was rather bulky, so it lost its place to slim options like the Danny K Tapestry and the S-Zone Wallet.
Protection was a top priority, so the Chala Chala Crossbody with its padded interior, and the Vera Bradley Performance Twill Carson Deluxe with its weather-resistant fabric caught our attention and wound up ranking highly.
Prada Saffiano Triangle Mini Bag The dimensions of the Prada Saffiano Triangle Mini Bag make it just right for many popular smartphone models, and its nearly full-length zipper with two pull-tabs make it easy to access your device. On the back it has three card slots, and it can either be held via the top grab handle or worn using the detachable body strap. neimanmarcus.com
