What Your iPad Cover Says About You
A shiny new iPad is going to be on many a holiday wish list this season, and that means accessories galore! Instead of opting in for the black, utilitarian Apple case (B-O-R-I-N-G) show your personal style with some of the fun and stylish, yet substantial new cases on the market.
One of our faves is the Case-Mate Hybrid Tough Cases made of a form-fitting silicone and then layered with an ABS plastic shell that hug your baby and protect it from drops, bumps and other tragedies. In 4 fashion-forward colors like pink and brilliant green. $49.99. If you want to put your hands on one before you buy, their line is now carried at Nordstroms.
What This Says About You: You're not afraid to wear bright pink. You're a rebel.
Our second favorite case is also from Case-Mate. Their iPad Venture case redefines understated luxury with its faux-leather and colored accents. The built-in stand acts as a presentation easel and workstation, and the snap closure guarantees protection for your new iPad. Every girl needs one of these in her wardrobe. $89.99 at Case-Mate.
You are fashion-foward and a leader, not a follower. Probably a Venture Capitalist.
For the Uptown Gal, we recommend the sophisticated BoxWave Manhattan Elite Travel Case, which looks just like a slim briefcase. Constructed out of genuine aged leather, the padded Travel Case comes in "Sienna Brown" and "Nero Black." $70. They also make the Manila Leather Envelope Case a legit padded leather case which just happens to hold your iPad. $38.95.
The Travel Elite Case Says: You are very chic and your friends admire your exquisite taste. The Manila Envelope: Funny and unpredictable. Hit on the party circut.
Dubbed the "Rolls Royce of iPad Cases" by our friends at Engadget, these iPad cases from DODO(don't you love the name?) are hand-crafted and numbered and made to look exactly like a book. The faux leather has notches in all the right spots for your headphone jack and buttons, and the tablet fits securely thanks to four rubber "stops" in the corners. Look smart and sophisticated for only $59 - 64.95 at DODOcase.com. The only down side is that everyone wants one so the company is back-ordered.
What This Says About You: "Class" is your middle name and you love vintage fashion.
For something completley out of the ordinary, why not a cork iPad sleeve designed by Frank Ryan? From the English site
Taperec which primarily sells music, tixs and band merchadise, the original sleeve costs twenty pounds but they do ship to the states.
What This Says About You: This one is easy. You're an artiste.
If fuzzy and pricey is your thing, there's always the Juicy Couture Cheetah iPad Cover.
What This Says About You: You're 15 years old.
