In my day, accessories were designed to be fashionable and that was it. They did not have to multitask and they certainly did not have to have a technical use.
Fast forward a couple of decades and if your accessory does not incorporate some technical aspect you might as well chuck it in the bin.
These days fashionable accessories have to look good and serve some other purpose, usually perform some technical function or protect your tech equipment.
With this in mind we have chosen some of the prettiest, the most useful and the most outlandish.
Here are our top ten tech accessories :
- Pink Pom Pom Phone Charm Plug – £5.50
When it comes to tech accessories, you can’t go wrong with a few pom poms. Seriously pimp your phone up with this fluffy bright pink pom pom. It has a plug that fits into the headphone jack and comes with a gold-tone chain.
The pastel pinks and blues of a unicorn are everywhere this year, and you can get in on the act with this gorgeous vinyl skin. Easy to apply, it is a sticker cover that simply wraps over your laptop. Be the envy of your friends!
Tech accessories come in many guises and this one is the perfect gift for anyone who loves art, gorgeous colours or gardening. Made to order, these covers fit iPads and a range of other devices, see the description for all the other models.
Not just a watch, but an activity tracker as well. Michael Kors has stepped into the wearables market and designed a range of great tech accessories, like these beautiful watches with a purpose, to help you keep track of your fitness. This one comes in four different colours; pink rose gold (shown), navy, black and black and white.
This is an unusual case for an iPhone as it is made from leather, whereas usually most cases are manufactured using plastic or vinyl. This one features beautifully drawn hummingbirds.
If anything furry gets your attention you might like this ‘Furry Thing’ from Urban Outfitters. In pastel pink, it snaps into place and when you turn it over you’ll see it has googly eyes that follow you everywhere.
- Women’s Denali Thermal E-Tip Glove – £30.00
Do you hate to take off your gloves when you are typing out an email or text? Now you don’t have to with these fabulous touchscreen gloves. They have a special E-Tip which allows you to swipe on any touchscreen.
- Sprinkle Doughnut Headphones – £20.00
You’d be a total doughnut if you didn’t buy these sprinkle doughnut shaped head phones (thank you). When everyone else on the street is looking as cool as you like, buck the trend with these pink monstrosities!
This clear iPhone case protects your iPhone and adds a little cute aspect with this furry pom pom in pink which is attached to the back.
Don’t like those functional looking smartwatches that look as if they were designed for big, strapping fellas? This should please you then. This is a more delicate and refined looking watch that has all the functions you require from a smartwatch, including receiving emails and texts, tracking fitness and much more.
