Looking for a new phone case, or hoping to replace your current one? There are several factors you need to consider when on the lookout for a new phone case, and in this article, we're going to take a look these.

I'll also take a look at some of the most aesthetic phone cases that I've found and absolutely adore. A whole array of styles are shown below, from subdued pastel tones to bolder and quirkier cases.

What To Look For In A Phone Case

When shopping for a phone case, make sure to bear in mind the following tips, as they'll definitely help you out during your search for the perfect phone case!


The material of the phone case is also important. There are a whole variety of materials that are available from TPU to polycarbonate.

But which material is the best? This depends on what aesthetic you're looking for, as well as the qualities of each material.

For example polycarbonate phone cases are quite durable but not fully scratch resistant. That said, a lot of phone case manufacturers have accommodated for this by adding a new layer of scratch-resistant material to combat this and so this adds another layer of protection to the phone case.

TPU phone cases offer excellent durability and a fantastic level of protection for your phone, and are available in either a softer or more hard types.

Correct Size

Make sure to choose a phone case that matches the correct phone you have or a similar phone with a similar screen size (for example the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8), this could be a vital mistake that could end with the phone case not fitting your phone.

Sometimes exceptions can be made and certain phones can fit in phone cases designed for different phones. You can check this resource from Casehut for more information on which phone cases fit which phones and so forth. If you find a phone case that you absolutely adore but it's built for a different phone with a larger or smaller screen size, you can check the linked webpage for more information. It just might fit, but be vigilant and always assume that more likely than not, that particular case won't fit unless it matches your phone's type.

Ideal of Sweden have also released a resource which states which phones fit which cases, make sure to check it out for more information!

The material and size of your new phone case is incredibly important, depending on what you're looking for from your case.

What Style Are You Looking For?

There are a variety of styles that your phone case can have, including:

- Gradients

- Glitter

Plus many more! These themes have largely dominated the trending items on Pinterest lately, with gradient phone cases, glitter phone cases and more making waves across the internet. It's fair to say that these embody the aesthetic that I absolutely love.

It's important to know which aesthetic or style you're looking for when shopping for a new phone case, so be sure to check out some of the categories above before making an informed decision.


Some of The Most Aesthetic Styles

Cosmic Stars

One trend which has been dominating Pinterest lately is that of cosmic and space-themed fashion accessories, plus phone cases too!

An example which I absolutely adore is this gorgeous phone case features a pattern containing comic stars, moons and all things galactic. Being a fan of all things cosmic, I absolutely adore this case and I've definitely been seeing an upward trend with this aesthetic lately, with a variety of bags, posters, etc featuring swirling galaxies and violet star dust. This phone case really showcases a stunning pattern!

This phone case is clear, so the moons and stars will be overlayed onto the back of your phone, so make sure to bear that in mind when considering this case also.

The pattern consists of beautiful moons, stars and other celestial beauties in a golden shade -- such a lovely aesthetic!


Another Design Trend: Glitter Sparkles

Another design trend which has been adorning phone cases for the last few years now is that of gorgeous glittery sparkles. Phone cases featuring glitter and sparkles have become all the rage these days.

An example of this is the following phone case available on Amazon, in a gorgeous blue color, I'm a huge fan of this phone case. With its mesmerizing blue tone and its amazing sparkles, it's sure to turn some heads and echoes the pastel aesthetic too.

The phone case helps to protect your camera too, with a raised layer of protection which definitely will keep your mind at ease, since the camera of your phone is protected too!

This is the first time I learned that there are so many phone covers with lovely designs. Even more, that these designs are also functional, in that they're being shockproof, Your pointers in selecting a suitable phone cover are also most appreciated.
