The Wallet on Chain (WOC) is a recent invention that combines the functionality of a wallet with elegance of a chain bag. The chain can be removed on almost any WOC and used as a regular wallet. With the chain, it can be a cross-body for day and slung over-the-shoulder for evening. Instead of throwing a wallet in your handbag, your handbag is a wallet that can hold all of your essentials. A WOC costs substantially less than a run-of-the-mill evening clutch or handbag, but has twice the practicality and double the style.
