Protect your phone--fashionably (photos)

I took a trip around the North Hall this morning and peeped out some of the most visually inspiring phone cases on the floor.

Flowers

LAS VEGAS--There is no other way to start off this phone fashion gallery than to introduce to you Felli Designs. I found them in the back of the North Hall in a tiny booth, but these beautiful flower designs caught my eye from afar.

Minimal pattern

I'm loving the minimal graphic pattern and colors on this Incipio case.

Stylus

Ozaki has some really interesting accessories at its booth. I especially liked the cases that had styluses built right into them.

Peacock

The Case-Mate animal line of phone cases is really well designed and eye catching.

Geisha

Don't be fooled by the bland name. Quality Camcarrier Corp. has some very cute ideas for phone cases, such as this geisha figure that opens up to reveal a mirror.

Cut out

Incipio wins again with this cool cut-out case that allows you to switch out colors and show off your Apple logo.

Painterly masters

Another small booth find: the Vincent van Gogh series of phone cases from Qual.

Colors

I've been kind of bored by Speck lately. My clear MacBook Pro case is so scuffed and cracked, I was skeptical as I headed over to the company's booth. However, I was nicely surprised to see that Speck is putting some serious effort into its designs. The colors in these cases stood out to me because they come across as fun but for adults.

Melt

The SwitchEasy Melt case is really cool. It reminds me of getting ice cream cones dipped into Magic Shell.

Gramophone

The One Collection has an interesting case that is built to amplify your phone speakers through an old-turned-new gramophone shape.

Drip

One Collection also has a modern design take on Jackson Pollock with its Phone Scribble phone sacks.

Relief

I'm all about finding cases that have cool cut-out patterns. I wish more companies did it. Among the few cut-out styles I found, this city design by SwitchEasy stood out.

Bling

I am not a big fan of the "bling out your phone" idea, however, the colors and very minimal amount of bling on this case was a great design choice by the makers over at < a rel="nofollow">.
