What Your Phone Case Says About You
These days, our smart phones are practically glued to our palms for most of our waking hours. We need them at the ready to Google things, order dinner on the way home from work, see what our friends are up to on Snapchat, swipe left or right…you get the point.
As such, we tend to dress our phones with as much care as we dress ourselves, and your choice of phone can say a lot about your style sense and overall personality. Do you pull out all the stops when it comes to your flashy phone cover? Prefer to go naked? Read on to find out what your phone case says about you.

You’re responsible; you want to protect your device, but don’t want anything too outlandish. You skip patterns, embellishments, and trendy tech accessories in favor of a go-with-everything, classically chic leather option.
The Conversation Starter:
Moschino Spray Bottle case, $95, nordstrom.com
As much as you love the latest iteration of the iPhone family, you prefer to hide your device in a case that functions as more of an accessory on its own (cue instant street style fame). Shaped like animals, fast-food fries, or household cleaning products, the latest styles from designers like Moschino and Stella McCartney will also ensure you’ll never have to go digging through your bag to find your phone again.
The Understated Trend:
Lizard grey, $98, thecasefactory.com
While you seek something more stylish that what your dad has on his phone, you don’t want anything too flashy. Subtle details and classic prints, like a faux exotic skin or calf hair are what you’re after.
The Crazy Couture:
Dolce & Gabbana crystal-embellished leather case, $516, matchesfashion.com
You dress to the nines, love a bold trend, and see no limit to the possibilities of glitz and glamour. You change your phone’s case nearly as often as you change your own clothing and have a favorite one for every day of the week and then some. In short, you want someone to notice your phone from a mile away and you want it to practically scream YOU.

You’re always on the go. You leave the house first thing in the morning and don’t find yourself near an electrical outlet until late at night. You spend your day going back and forth between emails, your camera, Google Maps, and all forms of social media, and need a back-up just in case your battery runs dry mid-swipe.
The Selfie Case:
Illumination cell phone case, $30, uncommongoods.com
This is the case for the girl who loves a selfie. If you find it difficult to go more than a few hours without capturing your #currentmood on some form of social media, why not look your best doing it?
The Naked Phone:
You either have insane confidence in your iron grip, no qualms about carrying around a shattered phone, or invested in a solid Apple Care insurance policy. Regardless, you bought an iPhone for a reason (slim shape, clean lines, modern style…the list goes on), so why hide your device behind a case?
