One of the things I’ve noticed about stylish people I admire is that it’s not just their clothes that look great, their outfits are always punctuated with great accessories. Often great style is in the details. Like fashion itself, the shapes, silhouettes and colors of accessories change with the times. Usually the coolest new looks are the hardest to put together, but that trendy handbag or fresh from the runway sunglasses can be combined with older clothes to create an ensemble that looks new and fresh. I like to invest in some fun, new, trendy accessories that can update my wardrobe even if the current crop of fashion trends aren’t to my taste.
I rarely LOL because I’d rather Haha. I have never employed the word “sick” to refer to something good. And I only recently embraced the wondrous poop emoji. I’m not a monk or a grandfather, but there are certain slightly juvenile parts of modern life I instinctively resist. But, there are certain other juvenile parts that I instantly fall in love with – and there’s no denying that an iPhone cover can function as a crucial part of a fashionable ensemble.
Pros: Considering that my phone is the one possession that can be visible all day long—in my hand as I walk, on my desk at work, on the table at dinner. In terms of accessories, I can’t think of one accessory that people interact with more, even more than a handbag. Most covers still focus on both protecting a very expensive device and showing off the Apple logo. But for me that soon became something everyone had. Over the past couple of years, the iPhone case has gone from pragmatic protector to personal style statement. That’s a fair amount of pressure.
I have given myself the license to indulge in teenage-girl fun. Everyone loves grown-up, expensive fashion, but there’s something special about messing it up and making it your own. It’s the same as having a beautiful bag and attaching a furry little charm on it. It’s irreverent. Besides, like Jeremy Scott says, there are too many serious things in this world, I just choose not to be one of them.
Comparison: A number of labels—including Stella McCartney, Fendi, Marc Jacobs and Anya Hindmarch—now have phone covers in their accessory repertoire. But perhaps the reigning king and queen of the fashion-iPhone cover game are Jeremy Scott and Ilse Valfre. The ever-more-cartoony and camp cases they design each season for Moschino and Valfre respectively have become zeitgeist-y, must-have items. They have created sculptural rubber cases that transform your phone into, say, a bubblegum-pink Barbie hand mirror or a spray paint can. Cons: As riotous a good time as these cases may be, they’re not everyone’s cup of tea because aside from all the attention, they also considerably fatten up your elegant iPhone, something Steve Jobs would never have approved. The Final Word: I must admit though, they give a good grip to an otherwise eel-like iphone, are easy to pick up from my bag and to hold while I talk or take pictures. Not just that, I had lost my phone at a mall food court recently and panicked. Guess what, even after an hour it was lying face down on the floor under the table I’d sat at. No one bothered to take it because they probably didn’t think it was a phone – I was using the ‘Fresh’ cleaning spray case that day and thank god for that. A free add-on Anti-theft insurance with just a dash of quirk? I’m sold. Do you think these cases are ridiculous? Haha let me hear what you have to say. What is the one accessory that you love? Are you in love with jewelry, shoes, scarves, watches, handbags, hats/caps, gadgets, just like to smell great or think that a big smile is the best accessory ever? Tell me. P.S: Did you notice those colorful things on my wrists? I’ll share a DIY on all those woven bracelets I made soon.
