New I-Style: Match Your iPad Accessory to Your Outfit!
Those fashionistas amongst us have known for a long while that sometimes, contrasting prints and colours simply will not do! Instead, far better to match your iPad, iPhone or iPod accessories to your outfit and create a subtle soothing look, that compliments rather than jars the whole ensemble. To demonstrate this beautifully, Dolce & Gabbana have released their gorgeous patent leather iPad sleeve with a dress in the same matching print; and if designers are doing it, it must be right!
