The latest runway trends aren't always for your closet. Designers are adding new accessories to their seasonal lines, and thankfully, many are specifically geared at us techies. We love that our gadgets can have fashion-magazine-level style, but (usually) at a much lower price tag than a designer's clothing. Want your iPhone to be as on-trend as the many photography apps it houses? One of these 10 chic designer cases is sure to do the trick.
This iPad case from luxe manufacturer Prada is a simple, standard nylon case. It closes with a zipper and is lined with a soft, signature jacquard lining. The outside features Prada's triangle logo, and the case is available in cheerful red and pink hues. Since it's Prada, it's a little more spendy than a no-name nylon case. Can you guess how much it costs?Take the Quiz
I went wild over the Diane von Furstenberg Kindle 2 cases that came out earlier this year, and now owners of the latest-edition Kindle can get their own designer cases from the fashion house, along with a few other well-known labels. DVF is back and brought friends like Cole Haan, Timbuk2, Belkin, BUILT, and LeSportsac to the Kindle case game. My favorites are the DVF (obviously) and Cole Haan cases, which are on the more expensive side, but good news — they are cheaper than the older-generation editions.
I can't get enough of DVF's fabric Garden Animal ($85) and Ikat Berry ($85) cases, while Cole Haan's hand-stained leather Green Floral Print ($99), Woven Leather ($119), and Pebble Grain Leather ($99) cases exude class and sophistication. I'm definitely picking up one of these babies if I happen to upgrade to a new Kindle. What about you?
