Have you heard that old saying ‘you can tell a lot about a person by their shoes’? Well nowadays, it’s probably more appropriate to substitute the words smartphone case for footwear.
Thanks to the likes of Moschino (and its irreverent cigarette packet and pill holder cases) and the slew of designers now adding phone covers to their accessory ranges, bland and boring crash protectors are a thing of the past.
Yet the trend doesn’t only come down to the fabulous Italian brand. Bloggers, artists and a host of well known creatives are coming to the party. Which tribe do you belong to?
FOR THE PARTY GIRL
TRY: CHIARA FERRAGNI’S FLIRTING IPHONE COVER
Unless you’re a complete phone case novice, most fashionistas will know that The Blonde Salad blogger’s flirting iPhone covers are still one of the most in-demand mobile accessories in style circles. Saturated in glitter and topped with the appliqued winking eye, it’s a classic statement piece if you’re struggling to add a little bit of drama to your outfit. Pop it on for your girl’s night out and watch the glitter catch the dim lights of the club as you dance the night away.

The awesome twosome behind They All Hate Us, Elle Ferguson and Tash Sefton, released their Girl Gang covers in April 2016, which sold out in a matter of weeks. They then released these oh-so-cute bestie phone covers (you get half a heart on your phone case, while the BFF gets the other). Coming up to Christmas, we think it’s the perfect little present for you to tell the world loud and proud who your fave member in the girl gang is.
