Move over shoes, phones and tablets seem to be the world’s greatest new accessory. Everywhere we go, we are sure to have our tech gadgets accessible to us at all times. What a perfect opportunity to show off how stylish (and clever) you are! Luckily, designers are constantly coming out with new lines of cases for our tablets, laptops, and phones.
I’m here to help you sort through some of the many options out there (and maybe provide a last minute Valentine’s Day gift idea!). What I can’t help you with is what to do with that expensive case when you switch from the iPhone 4S to the 5…Guess it is a good excuse to buy something new!
What kind of cases do I own for my iPhone and iPad you ask? Shiny metallic purple for my iPhone 5 but just plain black for my iPad. Why? The New Yorker in me can’t help but think it wouldn’t be very street smart to walk around with a glitter advertisement that I’m carrying around an iPad. Once I admit to myself that I don’t take the subway much anymore, I’ll buy the Kate Spade glitter case below.
Here are some of the cutest cases for your iPhones, Blackberrys, iPads, E-readers, and laptops:
Kate Spade carries her girly chic style over to her tech cases with fun colors and prints, and my favorite, glitter!
For more functional tech cases, look to Michael Kors. Combining phones and wallets, these cases are perfect for any event where you only want to carry the essentials, such as an all-day shopping trip. I’ll be purchasing one as soon as I can decide which color I want! Also, do you think studs would be too much?
For something more work appropriate, Coach has nice leather phone and tablet cases in an assortment of colors. For many of their products, they offer complimentary monogramming as well. What a great gift!
For more formal events where you don’t want to be weighed down, consider one of these Marc by Marc Jacobs phone “boxes,” cut to the shape of an iPhone with extra room for your cards and your lipstick! Sooo chic!
