Hot Trend: Tech Accessories


The days of rocking a naked iPhone are well and truly over. From Sportsgirl to Gucci, almost every brand is getting on the tech accessory bandwagon. And for good reason – I for one, am on my phone for what can feel like 24 hours a day, so why shouldn’t we cover our phones in style?

Tech accessories are the new fashion must haves - spotted in the hands of almost every fashionista at just about every fashion week the world over. The iPad cover has officially become the new clutch of the moment. Alexa Chung, Kim Kardashian, Miley Cyrus, Katie Holmes and the fashion elite are all grappling to get their hands on the latest and greatest ways to customise for their technology.

So the question remains - what do we cover our phones, tablets and laptops with? The possibilities are endless... pink, black, blue, green, leopard print, quilted, textured or even with build-in bottle openers. Not sure which tech accessory suits you? Here are our swiish top picks:
