Technology and fashion have been tangled in a seduction dance for some time now. Innovative designs and new collaborations have officially paired the two together, making the argument for your phone, camera, headphones and chargers to be as stylish as your wardrobe. Considering how frequently we use them, it seems only fair that we hold our devices to the same standard as, say, our shoes.
Cell phone cases were one of the first tech accessories to get the fashion treatment with brands like Kate Spade, Dannijo and Marc By Marc Jacobs creating poppy covers for our most treasured gadget. Blogger, photographer and past Lifestyle Mirror cover star Garance Doré has recently given cases an upgrade with a newly designed series for Rifle Paper Co., available at Anthropologie.
Now, even your charger is having a fashion moment. The problem-solving essential has gotten a stylish twist with J. Crew, Jonathan Adler, Ban.do and more creating quirky and portable designs for all our devices. We’re a little obsessed with this apple-shaped charger from Arclyte.
If you’re constantly moving lifestyle involves a fair amount of walking and public transportation, you probably can’t go a day without headphones. Over-ear models have never looked so sleek, thanks to Frends. Their line of headphones can be worn like jewlery with accents of white leather and gold hardware.
From Goldstriker’s $7,000 custom-made 24 karat gold and diamond iPhone 5s to a Rebecca Minkoff clutch that’s actually a wireless speaker, there’s a fashion-forward gadget to suit every lifestyle. Just don’t drop it.
