12 great iPhone cases

I have the world's most boring iPhone case—one of those ugly thick ones to keep it from breaking if Toby drops it or dunks it into his cereal. But! There are so many cute cases these days, I might just have to switch...

First row: Scales, gold foil, phone booth.
Second row: Bonjour, heart, bike.
Third row: Tulips, wooden, nope.
Fourth row: New Yorker cartoon, 1966 GQ Magazine cover, sun.

Thoughts? What's your case like?

P.S. This sparkly one is cool, too.

I like the phone booth one.
Right now I have a light blue with "mustaches" I got at Urban

jessie said...

my case is a willy wonka chocolate bar. and it actually protects my phone really well too.

Robyn said...

So cute. Shame Kate spade don't deliver internationally.

Can't wait to get rid of my crackberry and upgrade to an iPhone 5! Love the scales case, but I know i'd probably get a Cath Kidston's

Too funny...I have the very first one of the group. The Society 6 website is amazing. I had 5 or 6 cases in my shopping bag for weeks and couldn't decide. Finally went with my first choice, the colorful scales. I love it.

I just used the PostalPix app to create my own using a photo I took (via Instagram) of a pile of avocados before making guacamole for my dad's birthday this month. I adore avocados more than any other food and I think seeing them on my phone case all the time will really brighten my days! Either that or just make me constantly hungry...

Super selection. Have you seen the stunning lazerwood covers? They are made in the USA too.

For some reason the New Yorker one is cracking me up! They are all making me want to switch from the one I have (which my sister calls ghetto-licious!).

emmy d said...

I have the JCrew sparkle case! Even though the guys in my office (and my husband) make fun of it, I love it and am happy everytime I see my phone! Plus it's easy to find in a purse

officiallyobsessed.net said...

I have this one from GelaSkins, which I adore.

The only problem is that my best friend did too, to the point where he very seriously asked me if I'd mind if he bought it too. I don't, of course, and now when we hang out, I have to be VERY careful to take home my own phone, not his. :)

Stephanie Miller said...

society6 has a lot of great cases, but a word of caution, they are a terrible product as do not fit well and they have a no returns policy. i've experienced this first hand when i bought a really cute one, only to have to return to using my basic white one.

i love the condenast ones, so might have to give them a try! fingers crossed it fits better than the ones from society6.

sip-n-wear said...

Ooo i love the phone booth one!

suzy said...

i make my own, just for fun and so that no one else will have the same one as me. i set up a little soc.6 shop so i can see all my options and then occasionally "buy" a new one on free shipping week (ten bucks off!). i like my little system. :) my "shop" is here: http://society6.com/suzy/cases?page=2

Bri Towne said...

i just ordered a new one from rifle paper co. i don't think i'll ever buy from anywhere else. the customer service is fantastic and the cases are too cute!

ND said...

I changed mine to a pretty one recently, but I loved having this case: http://www.speckproducts.com/candyshell-card-for-iphone-4.html always got comments on it too!

Gabriella said...

Me too!

Holly Hardy said...

Ooh some of these are really cool! My case is from the Francis Bacon shop and it shows his study for a portrait of Lucien Freud (1971) on the back. There are quite a few nice phone cases you can buy there!

Nicole Michelle Centers said...

I'm loving the GQ case!

Thanks for sharing :)

I have the kate spade bicycle one and love it! The case is slim and durable, and I love the colors on it.

Mary Keller said...

It's like you read my mind. Just got a new phone yesterday so today i'm searching for a case. I'm lovin the little Fusilli one!

madiebaby said...

Hmm... a word to the wise- I ordered a super cute case from Society 6 (where many of the above are available) for my iPhone 4S and it did not fit. At all. $30. Not refundable. Waste of money. It was poorly made and no matter how hard I tried to get it to work it was just cut wrong, with the button holes slightly off...

madiebaby said...

Yes! I just posted a comment below to this effect- I bought one from Society6 that didn't fit at all. Wasted $30 on a non-returnable product. I wonder how much money they're making on these terrible products that nobody ends up using...

Patricia O'Shaughnessy said...

I also have an ugly otter box and I am often tempted to switch (some seriously cute cases out there) but... My kids broke my last iPhone screen that had a cute case on it and the glass sliced their hand. So it is ugly case for me as long as my kids are going to use it. They do have their own electronics but sometimes mine is the only one charged and is used in a long-line pinch.

Landry said...

I have the scales one and I get lots of compliments for it. And it's very sturdy and protects against regular falls to the floor!

Lana said...

I still have an old school Blackberry! LOL! But that New Yorker case makes me want an iPhone. :)

Sarah said...

really? I also have a Society 6 case and it fits my 4S perfectly! I wouldn't say it's super protective but I've dropped my phone a few times and have had no issues. When did you order yours? I got mine about a year ago so maybe they've changed their products. The one thing that really bothers me though is my print isn't centered on the case, and it's a symmetrical pattern so it drives me crazy.

Anitra Sweet said...

I got mine off of etsy with my favorite scripture and some pretty pink flowers. Commit your ways to the Lord, trust in Him and He will act. Ps. 37:5. Etsy has a bunch of cute ones!

Colleen Keller said...

The white with a heart gets very dirty fast! Maybe they should make it a hard case?

Michelle Panting said...

Gold foil is my fave.

Maggie Shirley said...

That Gemma Correll case is fantastic, as Gemma Correll usually is. My current phone case is by Mei Lee, who paints beautiful watercolor quotes. Mine is from John Green: "What matters to you defines your mattering." I love it so much.

Stephanie said...

I love the bonjour one, and Nope. Haha! Wish I had an iphone sometimes

Jessica Hobin said...

cute! I need a good sturdy case because I drop my phone all the time, but I've seen some that look like vintage cameras that I really love!

I have a Pong Case for my iPhone. It directs radiation from phone calls away from my head. I do get nervous because I assume the redirected radiation is stronger, and I don't like it to point at my kids or fiance. http://www.pongresearch.com/the-pong-case-for-iphone-4-4s-classic.html

Sarah Dufour said...

Ah! Just wanted to say I've been drooling over the rifle paper co. cases for weeks and can't decide which one I want... torn between the leopards and the "hello!" ones. Gah.

Melissa Blake said...

I looove the glitter one!! Any chance you know where to find some great cases for the Samsung Galaxy? I just got it last week and am trying to find a cool case!

May I recommend tech candy cases? I have one and I LOVE it. It's sturdy like an otter box, but actually cute! I was just on the site and it looks like mine is discontinued (I have the gingko leaves pattern with a mint sleeve) but there are tons of pretty ones to choose from!

Lillian D. said...

I also have one of the sturdy plain otterbox cases. I love the case with the scale design- simple yet colorful!

Elisha said...

Loving the gold foil and NOPE! So bummed I just ordered a new case a few days ago, I'll have to bookmark these!

I have the heart one from Bando!! But I only got it because Hilary Duff has the exact same one, she posted a picture on her Instagram (:

mo said...

I think I am the only woman on earth that is not into iphone cases! I don't get it. I have an awesome case by Belkin that is clear and black. It does the job perfectly. Done. All the fancy cases just seem so unnecessary and ... (no offense) but kind of childish. (sorry!) And yes I am otherwise very feminine but with iphone cases I guess i'm like a guy or an old person, ha!

Melissa Blake said...

Thanks, Julie! :)

Bailey Martin said...

I am drawn to the super cute ones too. Alas, I am really clumsy and know I need something sturdier. I love Speck cases. Fun colors and protective. The one I have has a spongy inside for shock absorption but also a border that protects the screen--I am convinced it is what has saved my screen so far! I am curious to learn more about this Caseagram though! That sounds fun :)

love them all, but what about us android users? i've been carrying the boring rubbery black case far too long.

Before I washed my iPhone in the washing machine (RIP, poor phone), I had this funky case:

I'd often put it in front of my face if someone wanted a picture of me and I wasn't in the mood ;)

i love all these great iphone cases but sadly have an android. Have you come across any fun cases for that kind of phone? It's killing me that i would have to shell out extra bucks for an iphone just because i love all the cases!

Sophie said...

Thank you for this post! I have had a boring thick black case since I bought my iPhone last year and am ready to switch it out for some sparkle. I wish the bonjour and gold foil cases came in 4s though :(

Those are all very cool, thanks for sharing them! I have been looking at some iPhone cases and I really wasn't sure what to go with. Do these help protect the iPhone well because I think that last thing that I would want to do is break my new phone.

Has anyone heard of the Vaultskin wallet case? It's the ideal gift for a mate of mine as he hates carrying wallets + phone but it has mixed reviews, idea/concept/style seems great but there are some not so great reviews as well. HELP
