How Smartphones Have Become the Coolest New Fashion Accessory

It’s not just another gadget, but an extension of your personality.

Fashion and technology have come a long way. Gone are the days when a smartphone was only used to send e-mails or catch up with your 4am friend. Today, it’s not just a necessity, but also a fashion accessory. With every new launch, smartphones are fast becoming a part of our wardrobe. From sleek, mirror-finish phones for the boardroom to trendy ones that go well with your brunch outfit, the options are endless. 





While clothes make up a major part of your outfit, accessories can make or break your look. Which is why, when you’re buying a phone, imagine how it would go with most of your outfits. Would it be just another gadget or can it take your look a notch up? Take, for instance, the slim, sleek, and textured exterior of the vivo S1, which is perfect for the millennial woman-on-the-go. In case, your smartphone isn’t good enough to serve as an accessory, you always have phone covers to make up for it. From floral-print and neon pieces to embellished and captioned ones, chances are there’s a phone cover that will always match your outfit and mood.


New Phone, Who This?

Fashion accessories compliment your personal style and preferences, and can be seen as an extension of your personality. Take a look at New York girl, Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and The City or Andrea Sachs from The Devil Wears Prada—two women who convincingly rocked the chic working-girl look with the help of their phones. Suffice to say, your smartphone speaks volumes about your personal style. If you hadn’t noticed already, your phone is possibly the only possession that’s with you most of the time, and one that you interact with the most. Which is why it's wise to choose one that not just serves your purpose, but also reflects your sartorial choices.


Colour Coded

When it comes to fashion, colours play an important role. For example, a black outfit establishes a sense of authority whereas a white one exudes a sense of calm and serenity. No wonder, then, that designers around the world pay acute attention to the colour palettes they use for each of their collections. You, too, probably know what colours flatter your complexion and which ones make you look washed out. The same logic applies to your smartphones too. If you have more of a pantsuit, working girl vibe, a sleek, black smartphone is probably the best option for you. On the other hand, if you want to create a cool, girl-next-door-look, a blue, gradient-finish phone would suit your mood the best.


So the next time you go smartphone shopping, don’t think of it as a gadget but as a cool, new addition to your wardrobe.
