Why Your Phone Case Describes Who You Are As a Person

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Wilfrid Laurier chapter.

Your phone is basically your life, right?  It’s got all your info, all your pics, and more often than not, stays super cute and protected in a case.  As a millennial, our phone is our identity, so why shouldn’t the case we have it in perfectly describe who we are as a person?  Have a read below and see if your case matches your personality.

The Otter Box

This case is basically life-proof.  It’s for the person who has a history of being a little clumsy and has a tendency to drop their phone more times than they can count on their fingers.  Fear not though, this case is the answer to your cracked-phone nightmare.  These cases are for those who are so care-free and relaxed they don’t have time to worry about whether or not their case looks cute because they spent a good coin on it and need it to handle whatever life throws at them!

The Sparkly Case

You know the ones.  These cases are the ones you can see from miles away with so much glitter on them they could practically be a disco ball.  These cases are perfect for those of us who want to be super bougie at all times and have everyone know it.  The person with a sparkly phone case is always the life of the party!

The Designer Case

Real or faux, anyone with a designer phone case is all about the ‘gram, and has been enticed by every fashion blogger to purchase one.  If it makes you feel hella fashion-forward, hey, why not?  These phone cases were made for looks and not protection, so anyone with a designer phone case is all about sacrificing the look of their phone for the bomb pics.  #WillDoAnythingForInsta

The Food Shell Case

These cases are for the ultimate food lovers out there.  They come in so many shapes and sizes now it’s hard to tell the real food from the fake!  There’s tacos, pizza slices and even a carton called “Boy’s Tears!” UM NEED! LOL.  Foodies out there covet these phone cases and want everyone to know that the key to their heart is through their stomach, and I’m definitely one of those people!

The Funny Case

These phone cases perfectly describe the jokers of the world who love a good joke now and again, even if it means it’s displayed on their phone case.  What about an evil eyes phone case to block the haters?  LOVE!  Seriously, we all love having a good laugh, so why not get a chuckle out of someone’s phone case?  Could be an awesome convo starter!

The No-Case

Uh-oh.  These no-case phones are the property of the risk-takers in life.  They’re the ones in denial about the fact that their phones are not immune to cracks.  The person lacking a case on their mobile phone is all about taking risks and challenging whatever life decides to hand to them.  It’s all fun and games until some(thing) gets hurt.

Whether you’re pro or against cases, your phone case might be the key to self-identifying yourself!  Hope you found this article enjoyable, if not informative! All the best collegiettes XO
