There's glitter on our radar in this week’s iPhone-case roundup, with accessories that bring a little sparkle to your handset, a dash of haute-couture for your enjoyment, and an assortment of the toughest protection available.

Case Scenario

The company’s Pantone Universe (iPhone 5c; €18) is inspired from the color-matching standard used by designers worldwide.

Available in blue, green, red, yellow, or white, the case features a rugged construction comprised of both a body and a protective TPU bumper for maximum protection from impact and scratches.

CM4

The Slite (iPhone 5c; $30) is built to match style with protection. Its one-piece construction ensures an optimal fit, with push-through button covers and a lay-flat screen guard.

As a bonus, the case also incorporates a convenient pocket that can be used to stash a few cards or some cash.

HyperCel

The Virgo (iPhone 5 and 5s; $25) combines soft and hard materials in a unique design that’s both stylish and resilient against everyday accidents.

It comes in red, white, black, or blue.

iSkin

The Solo (iPhone 5 and 5s; $30) is made from a non-toxic thermopolymer that’s infused with a special antibacterial solution, resulting in a cocoon of absolute protection for your handset—and for your skin.

The case comes in blue, black, purple, or sparkling pink.

The Joy Factory

The Daytona V (iPhone 5 and 5s; $30) features an inner silicone sleeve contained in a hard plastic case for maximum protection from shock and drops.

The case’s construction is designed after high-quality wristwatches, with a three-dimensional motif available in grey, blue, green, or white over black.

Noreve

The Tradition B (iPhone 5 and 5s; €55) is made from top-quality, handcrafted leather, with a thermoplastic-polymer inner structure for added stability and protection.

The case comes in a wide range of colors and textures, and is designed to protect both the front and back of your handset, with a convenient clasp to keep everything safely closed when not in use.

Slickwraps

The Glitz Series (iPhone 5 and 5s; $23) brings a bit more… sparkle to your handset without adding significant bulk to it.

The series of adhesive skins, each designed to cover the front, back, and sides of your iPhone, includes models in blue, purple, pink, orange, white, and red.

SwitchEasy

The Odyssey (iPhone 5c; $25) is made from an inner rubberized layer that makes installation easy, coupled with a hard, polycarbonate shell that’s both scratch- and shock-resistant.

The case comes in black, blue, green, or white.

Tylt

The Ruggd (iPhone 5c; $35) may be missing a vowel in its name, but it doesn’t miss a step when it comes to protection, with a shockproof, energy-absorbing inner layer and a premium-grade, hard outer shell for maximum resilience against everyday bumps and scratches.

The case comes in black and lime.
