Since cell phones might as well be glued to our hands, think of your case as a permanent accessory. While it’s easy to swap out your rings or bracelets, a smartphone case is something you need to pair with every outfit — like a classic pair of black stilettos or your go-to ballet flats. You want it to be chic and streamlined, but also original. And if you’re the beauty-obsessed type like I am, you’ll love these sleek cases that feature a pretty lipstick or a classic mirror.
