The cell phone craze began in the mid-1990s, and many people clamored for the new cutting-edge devices and, not long after, the accessories.
Although cell phones still serve an important purpose in one’s everyday life, a new fashion focus has emerged — what the outer cover says about ones style or fashion statement.
Some cases reflect a person’s style and lifestyle so well the exterior of their cell says more
about their lifestyle than their outfit.
Cases like LifeProof, which are renowned as one of the most durable and dependable cases on the market, are great for someone who is adventurous and lives an active outdoor lifestyle or just wants added protection for their smartphone.
“I study really hard, but when I have a break, I want to make the most of it. I never know what fun things I will end up doing with my friends, and worrying about my phone is the last thing that I need slowing me down,” said Lauren Griffin, senior nursing major.
For the more nostalgically inclined, phone cases come in actual everyday objects like mugs.
“My mug case is always a conversation starter. It is a great way to make new friends, and I like to have cool and unconventional things,”said Daniel Freitas, California Baptist University alumnus.
The TRTL iPhone case is designed to store credit cards, IDs and a few extra dollars. This case is great for those who do not want to carry just their phone.
Katelyn Garmon, alumna, said she th case because it keeps everything in one place.
These are a few examples of what is a vast selection of fashion cell phone cases. Those looking to add to their phone’s personality need to begin with a simple search.
