Add one more accessory to your outfit with smartphone skins
Accessorizing is the primary way that people are able to make their personal style stand out. There are, without doubt, many ways that people can style themselves up – clothes, hairstyles, and perfumes are among them – but there’s nothing that stands out as much as an accessory. The reason that accessories play such a large role in defining a person’s personal style is that they are constants and they are almost always different from person to person. The same clothes are never worn from day to day, or at least they definitely should not be, and for this reason clothes are not as definitive as accessories. Rings and necklaces that carry meaning for a person will be regularly worn, and hair clips and ties that serve a purpose every day will be commonplace. These are the kinds of accessories that define a person’s image.
The ubiquity of technology has afforded us further accessorizing options. Mobile phones – smart phones in particular – have become something of a part of the uniform of the modern man. Blackberries are an indicator of work in finance, iPhones can identify an apple fan, and Androids demonstrate let you pick out the more experimental smart phone users. Just like the jewelry that we use as pieces of flare, the electronics that we carry day to day are an indicator of our preferences as well as our technological savvy.
In addition, just like laptops with decals, smart phones are a chance to quickly and easily share with the world some of our preferences. Smart phones skins are perfect for this because their large surface are and frequency of use. You can easily place a sizeable picture, text, or design on your phone. A Hello Kitty iPhone 4 Case demonstrates both form and function by protecting your phone and being adorable.
