Best iPhone 5 Cases

If you haven’t guessed already, I’m obsessed with Apple. If you were one of the lucky to snag an iPhone 5 back when they were released in September, you felt my pain of having essentially zero case options when the device was released. However, months in (and new models in the works), we finally have lots of iPhone 5 cases to choose from. Scroll down to check out 5 of my top picks for cases – both handy and stylish!

Crossword Puzzle Case
This adorable crossword case from Kate Spade ($40) is available exclusively at Nordstrom. At the top of my list, this is actually the current case I have on my iPhone 5 and I can’t get enough of it! I haven’t written anything on mine but if you wanted to fill in some letters on the crossword and give the case a little touch of personalization it would still look just as fab!

Pink MK Clutch Csase
I don’t have my hands on this fashionable pink wristlet/clutch case from Michael Kors ($80) just yet, but mark my words – I will! With a bright pop of color (perfect for spring), this case which also poses as a clutch, is perfect for nights out on the town!

Marvel Superhero Alphabet Case
Superheroes are all the rage today. And this ($35) superhero alphabet case from Society 6 proves just that. Featuring a different superhero for each letter of the alphabet, this case will allow you to let your geek flag fly. Can you name all of the Marvel superheroes on here – without cheating?

It’s My Party Case
Henri Bendel’s “It’s My Party” case ($38) is too cute. Not only is this case from an incredible designer, it’s also fun! This would be a great case to gift one of your bff’s (especially if one of you is blonde and the other brunette). If you’re into fashion, designer things, and/or parties, this is the case for you!

Credit Card Case
This case is extremely practical – and one to consider investing in, especially when you’re tight on purse/pocket space. Incipio’s Stowaway Credit Card Case ($35) comes with a “secret trap door” – one you can hide credit cards and a little bit of cash in, right behind your prized tech possession (the phone you can’t live without). As if that wasn’t cool enough, the phone also has a stand, allowing you to prop your iPhone up when watching videos.
