iPhone Cases: Top 10 Fall Picks

iPhone Life Magazine - - Front Page - BY RE­BECCA SAN­TI­AGO

For Ap­ple pa­trons, fall is a great time to go shop­ping for not only a new iPhone, but also for a shiny case to swad­dle it in. What bet­ter way to spend your money than on gear for your most prized pos­ses­sion? I mean, un­less you’re a gen­er­ous bil­lion­aire ex­pe­ri­enc­ing a sud­den han­ker­ing to send a young writer to the Mal­dives just for kicks. If that’s the case, to­tally pri­or­i­tize that over a phone case.

But, yes, your phone is guar­an­teed to be on your per­son ev­ery sin­gle mo­ment of ev­ery sin­gle day. (That’s right, ev­ery­one knows you play 2048 in the bath­room some­times. Hey, this is a no-shame zone.) All this is to say, if you’re in­vest­ing in a phone case, you’d bet­ter love how it looks and per­forms. Here are 10 of my tried-and-true fa­vorites: Flex­ion Eu­pho­ria ($15.99) It’s such a bum­mer to have to cover up a sexy new phone with a case. What I like about the Flex­ion Eu­pho­ria is that it feels very on brand—it doesn’t look ex­actly like an iPhone, but it main­tains a very sim­i­lar vibe. All that sleek good­ness tops off with a nice pop of color and a mi­crofiber lin­ing, the lat­ter of which keeps your phone in mint con­di­tion. The lip over the screen adds a nice pro­tec­tive touch, if you've got but­terfin­gers like me. Adopted Sad­dle Leather Fo­lio Case ($49.95) I’m so ob­sessed with this brand. I first dis­cov­ered Adopted when I was work­ing at a Very Fancy Mag­a­zine, and dur­ing my time there, I man­aged to con­vert a hand­ful of Very Fancy Ed­i­tors to Adopted users. And ed­i­tors are picky! Any­way, this tac­tile leather wal­let case is es­pe­cially gor­geous. It’s mas­cu­line in a way that lends it­self to uni­sex use, if that makes sense—like the tech equiv­a­lent of a “boyfriend blazer,” ex­cept much more luxe. (That stitch­ing!)

ThinOPTICS Glasses + Phone Case ($38.95) You don’t even want to know what my glasses pre­scrip­tion is. I ba­si­cally have to pull a Velma ev­ery morn­ing when I wake up. Which is to say, I never lose my glasses, be­cause los­ing my glasses is not an op­tion. My mom, how­ever, has a gift for mis­plac­ing her ev­ery-now-and-then read­ing glasses. Well, never again mom! Be­cause now you can keep a pair of su­per-thin, stem-less glasses within your very phone case. The case it­self is slim­mer than you’d ex­pect, and clicks into place with ease, while the glasses come in a range of funky col­ors and lens strengths. Kate Spade New York Saf­fi­ano Wrist­let ($99.99) Man, this is the wal­let-meets-sleeve phone case I wish I’d had in col­lege, back when I used to slide my col­lege ID in be­tween my phone case and phone—which ul­ti­mately stretched it out and ren­dered it un­us­able (RIP stripey case). This baby’s got space for ev­ery­thing—your driver’s li­cense, your credit cards, your cash, your phone—and, thanks to a wrist strap, it’s lit­er­ally the only thing you have to bring with you when you leave the house, or hit up that frat keg­ger, or what­ever it is I was do­ing in col­lege. The ba­sic black is a clas­sic, but the de­sign’s so el­e­gant that you could def­i­nitely opt for a brighter color on this one. Ot­ter­Box Resur­gence Power Case ($99.95) If you were to judge me by my ac­tions alone, you would think I love noth­ing more than to adamantly ne­glect to charge my phone, ex­cept per­haps to drop it on the ground re­peat­edly through­out the course of the day. So thank god for this über­prac­ti­cal, hard-shell Ot­ter­Box case, you know? It’s as spec­tac­u­larly sturdy as you’d ex­pect, with a scat­ter­ing of sharp de­sign el­e­ments and the added ben­e­fit of a built-in bat­tery. A lit­tle LED in­di­ca­tor on the back lets you know when the case needs to recharge. Case-Mate Brushed Alu­minum Case in Gun­metal ($50) This steely case is the very por­trait of so­phis­ti­ca­tion, with its pol­ished, min­i­mal­ist de­sign. It’s slim and pro­fes­sional, with a three-piece snap-to­gether de­sign that keeps ev­ery­thing from get­ting too bulky. This isn’t a good one to throw around the room, but it’s great for bring­ing into a meet­ing. It se­ri­ously com­mands re­spect. What more can you ask for in a phone case?
