Admit it – you spend so much time tweeting, texting, Instagramming, etc. that your friends and family barely see you without your phone or tablet in hand (don’t worry; we’re guilty of this as well!). Since these products have basically become a part of our bodies, we might as well dress them up too!
We’ve rounded up some of our favourite fashionable tech accessories for every price point.
No need to wrap your laptop in a pashmina and shove it in your purse anymore. These laptop cases are equally fashionable as they are functional.
Save: Aldo Aldi Laptop Bag in Midnight Black, $60
We love this two-toned laptop case because it’s insanely chic, whether you wear it on one shoulder, cross-body, or simply hold it in your hand.
Splurge: Marc by Marc Jacobs Green Intergalocktic Laptop Bag, $440
This laptop bag instantly caught our eye because of its lovely green shade, gold hardware, and textured nodules. It’s perfect for adding a pop of colour to any outfit.
If you’re one of the lucky ones who managed to snag an iPhone 5 already, we’re betting all your friends are going to want to try it out. Protect your new baby from any injuries with these gorgeous cases. Warning: May induce added jealousy from those around you.
Save: Kate Spade New York ˜Lenticular Eyes’ iPhone 5 Case, $42
This cheeky case gives a sultry wink everytime you move your phone. See someone staring enviously at your new gadget? Shift your phone slightly, and wink away!
Splurge: Alexander McQueen Dark Pink Skull Charm Phone Case, $295
McQueen, skulls, and hot pink: three of our most favourite things. Need we say more?
Decided to stick to your iPhone 4/4S? Not to worry, add on a fun case, and it’s as if you have a brand new phone!
Save: DVF Mantra iPhone Case, $28
Diane von Furstenberg is one of the most inspirational women in fashion. President of the CFDA, and one of Forbes’ Most Powerful Women, she is definitely someone we look up to. So naturally, we’re a little bit obsessed with this Mantra case, especially for those days when we need a little bit of extra motivation and optimism.
Splurge: Jagger Edge Hang Fire iPhone 4 Cover in Black and Gold, $142.
The ultimate in luxury, this leather case has 14-karat gold hardware and a detachable tassel. We love it so much, that we may have to pull our phone out of our bags even more, just to show it off.
Bonus: Two-for-one: Rebecca Minkoff Best Friends iPhone 4 Case Set, $60
Remember those best friends necklaces you used to buy in elementary school? Well, Rebecca Minkoff has brilliantly revived this trend, but in an even cooler form. What better way to show your BFF you love her than with this adorable case?
Save: Kate Spade New York Composition Notebook iPad Folio, $85.
We love this retro-inspired case because it brings us back to the days when we used to doodle in composition notebooks during class.
Splurge: Balenciaga Screen Cyclamen, $565.
Made from vintage lambskin, this iPad case is a take on Balenciaga’s famous motorcycle bag. We especially love that it has a standing system, which makes it much easier for us to stream our favourite fashion shows live.
Bonus: Chanel Lambskin iPad Case, Call Chanel for price
Let’s just call this our dream iPad case. Or dream accessory, in general. This lambskin case has two front pockets (embossed with interlocking Cs, of course) to stash headphones, cables, etc. If Coco were still alive, she’d definitely be carrying this around to show off her designs.
