Did you know that people spend an average time of three hours and 15 minutes on their phones each day? That's a lot of time spent browsing Facebook and Instagram, chatting with friends, and taking photos! Considering that we're rarely without our phones in hand though, it wouldn't be an exaggeration to say that it's one of our most important fashion accessories, don't you think? Hence, a boring phone case simply shouldn't suffice—just imagine all the mirror selfies you'd have to take with it!
That said, there are plenty of nice options available on the market if you know where to look. But if you want to go the extra mile, then we suggest investing your money's worth in a designer phone case that will no doubt complement your chic, stylish OOTDs. Luxury fashion houses like Chanel, Prada, and Louis Vuitton offer classic phone cases that are fashioned after their iconic bags—so it will feel almost like carrying your own designer arm candy!
