Cases

You might think that "Bling My Thing" tells you everything you need to know about this case. It's a simple shell, encrusted with Swarovski crystals in a wave pattern. There are ten different colorways, offering different permutations of case and crystal color. But it's not all about flash. The Milky Way's hard polycarbonate case offers good protection against bumps and scratches, too. Watch out, though. Prying this thing off could easily break a nail. Just saying.

The Active is another take on Seidio's combo cases. This two-piece case features a silicone layer for absorbing shock, and a hard plastic exoskeleton to protect against major bumps. It's easy to install and uninstall, but the molded button coverings sacrifice a little bit of usability. Active is also available with or without the metal kickstand and holster.

If you're a bit of a klutz, the CandyShell Grip does a good job of keeping your iPhone in your hand and off the asphalt. Combining the sleek lines of Speck's CandyShell hard cases with rubberized details, this case manages to be sleek while offering good traction for your fingers. Design-wise, it's a little more party-in-the-back than business-in-the-front, but seven different color combos offer a bit of range in styles.

Speck's fabric-covered hard cases get a style boost from snowboard gear maker Burton's wild patterns.
