Get your phone a new outfit for the new year! Cool & Stylish new smartphone cases
When the seasons change, it’s a great time to think about upgrading your smartphone case. It’s a great idea to have a case wardrobe so your phone is protected in different situations, or you can just change cases to jazz it up for different events and situations.
Recently I’ve gotten a look at some particularly cool new smartphone cases.
A line of sleek and sexy cases, Moshi makes gorgeous leather, and metal cases for iPhone and Samsung. I really liked the iGlaze Armour case, which I got in a gold tone to match my phone. It has plastic bumpers at top and bottom, and a nice sleek gold back. A slim edge gives access to the whole screen, and the openings are wide enough to charge the phone without needing to remove it from the case.
Also in the Moshi line is a beautiful elegant leather-look folio case. Overture has a snap-in binding to hold the phone securely and is covered in a mix of weatherproof fabric and microfiber lining. This case, like the other in the line has all the right openings for snapping photos and charging your device, plus it can double as a stand when the cover is flipped open.
The Kameleon is a similar case to the iGlaze, but it has a really cool kickstand feature that allows it to be propped in either portrait or landscape mode.
This might be my favourite case for the coming winter. FUZ designs makes a really fun felt case. It’s a durable plastic drop-proof shell, covered with a fuzzy grey felt that’s just 2mm thick. The case allows charging without removal, and it’s nice to hold, plus it doesn’t slide around on fabric.
These plastic shell cases from Felony Case are definite winners for most eye-catching. The 3-D raised texture on the Kaleidoscope case is stunning, but the softness of the design means it’s comfortable to hold, despite looking menacingly like a torture device. In gold, rose gold, black and white, these cases are stunning accessories. Not to mention the case is barely a millimeter thick, so it adds absolutely zero bulk to your device. While the business-types have been coveting the Moshi cases and the hipster are after Fuz, the fashionistas all want my Felony Case!
Felony Case also has the sleek and elegant stone-look case called Smoke marble which gives a more natural feel to your high tech smartphone.
Speck never disappoints when it comes to cool new cases that are also built tough. This season there’s some pretty attractive options, including an aluminum backed, flower skinned beauty (called the Inked Luxury) in a yummy flower print as well as a couple ombre models. As with all Speck cases they’re super durable, with a rubber lined interior that holds your phone securely and keeps it free from damage.
For the minimalist, the clear Candyshell case lets your phone’s own beauty shine through. It’s a great basic option.
What’s your favourite case? Which brands are tops for you? I’d love to know about others I should check out.
