Who said fashion can’t be fun?

Style doesn’t stop with your wardrobe, so why not give your number one accessory, your smartphone, a season-worthy update for the summer as well? Phone covers serve the dual purpose of protecting and adorning and for Spring/Summer 2013 the designers have gone to town to bring you quirky and colourful cases to embellish your phone and allow you to show your fun side. 

We have scouted around, and here are our favourites:

The fun never stops when Tory Burch takes her playful lobster print and re-works it as a silicone iPhone 5 cover. Not only is it summery and fun, but it’s almost certain to bounce if you drop it (although we really don’t recommend testing this theory).  On the other hand, Moschino have gone for the cute factor with their teddy-bear case, just try and resist its cuddly charm.

Marc Jacobs has designed loads of irreverent covers in acid-bright shades, but this is our favourite of the lot. Characteristically over-the-top and on-trend, we love the expression on the little cat’s face. If adorable is not your thing, then this graphic offering from American brand Dannijo gives style credits with its bold, global-inspired print.

The moustache cover from tech accessories brand Audiology is witty and whimsical with a dash of cool thrown in, while Diane Von Furstenberg‘s case rocks a simple, bold print that is eye-catching, feminine and just a little bit cheeky.
