Anatomy of a Saint Laurent Chain Wallet for Weddings

Congratulations are in order when it comes to celebrating the special day of your closest friends! While the invitations are still hot off the press and the bachelorette’s party planning has commenced, the looming question would be: what are you wearing to the wedding? 

Dressing for a wedding takes a mix of wedding guesting etiquette, venue-appropriate research, and practical comfort. While you can glam up for the event, it’s also about being comfortable in your own skin and not go out of your way with impractical options, right down to the accessories–shoes and bags included.

One of the top reasons the itsy range from Style Theory Bags are often rented on the weekends is for wedding occasions.

What to consider when dressing up for a wedding:

  • Is there a dress code to adhere to?
    Check your invitations if it requires a black-tie, white-tie, or cocktail option.
  • Is there a need to layer up?
    What is the weather going to be like? Is the wedding held indoors or outdoors? It’ll be smart to bring a shawl to a ballroom wedding if you get cold easily.
  • Are heels appropriate for the wedding?
    Consider the flights of stairs if you’re attending a ballroom wedding or the types of floors the alfresco dining area would have. Cobblestones and boardwalks are not the best for stilettos.
  • What are you bringing to the wedding? 
    Depending on your role at the wedding, you could be only bringing the essentials (yay, small bags!) or be in charge of the important documents.

One of the easiest #OOTD combinations to RSVP in style would be to pair blush hues with neutral tones or small prints. A popular blush accessory from the Infinite Bag Wardrobe is the Saint Laurent Monogram Chain Wallet.

What Matters #1:  Size

Dainty bags steal the limelight at weddings. It’s true; not only are smaller bags a look-changer, but they can also be a life-changer. We love the petite proportions of the Saint Laurent Chain Wallet compared to the larger cross-body models as it whittles out the unnecessary things we bring around in our daily commute for a light, fuss-free event.

It doesn’t hurt that the Chain Wallet also comes with 20 card slots and a zip coin pocket to replace your cardholders, bulky wallets and coin wallet for that less-is-more lifestyle for an event out.

What Matters #2: Material

Saint Laurent’s small arm candy is small in comparison but it’s no less commanding and definitely big on style. The matelassé stitching mimics the style of hand-stitched quilts made in Marseilles, France and makes the calfskin leather appear quilted or padded–an added luxe factor to the chain wallet.

What Matters #3: Handle

The Saint Laurent Chain Wallet is a crowd-favourite for its versatility; it switches from clutch for a day event to a cross-body option for dinner with the long, detachable shoulder strap.

When attached, the chain strap is strapped snugly across the body for a hands-free cross-body style. Though the gusset strengthens the structural integrity of the chain wallet and enlarges the sides to store bulkier items, it’s best to not store the Chain Wallet with too many bulky or heavy items as cross-body styles can easily weigh your look down and posture.

What Matters #4: Opening

The flap front wallet and snap front closure makes it easy to access and secure to store your valuables.

The iconic interlocking YSL signature gold-toned hardware on the flap completes the statement effect.
