Accessorizing Your Tech Life In Fashionable Black & White

Accessorizing Your Tech Life In Fashionable Black & White

Look around and you'll notice the warmer weather has brought forth an explosion of bright patterns and vibrant colors everywhere you look. But even so, basic black and white remains a fashionable staple for the tech set. Here are several ways to accessorize your tech and home in the simplicity of black and white...

Hand Painted iPad Sleeve: I like the raw, painted look of this iPad sleeve, the monochrome combination reflecting the simplicity of this durable, water repellent design. The painted canvas exterior makes this feel less like a tablet sleeve and more like a small piece of art to carry around.

Coconut Chair: This is probably one of the most comfortable lounge chairs I’ve ever sat in, and I've found the shape is perfect for both the living room for watching TV or kicking back to read on the iPad. The slice of coconut shaped seating is a Herman Miller classic, designed by George Nelson, but at $4499.00 brand new I'm resigned to keep this on my Pinterest wishlist for now.

Laptop Sleeve: There’s something about Kate Spade products that always remind me of pools or Palm Springs. Like classic cocktail dress for a Palm Springs evening out, this black and white stripe patterned laptop sleeve is sophisticated and simple. It’s made of cushy neoprene and is a standard zip up sleeve, and nothing matches the classic quality of black and white like stripes. 

Diana F+ Snowcat: I love the retro look of Lomography Diana cameras, and this one is adds an additional feature of fun with a black and white cat design peeking from the corner. This camera is part of the Diana F+ Clone collection – different takes and designs on the classic Diana camera design. 

I Heart California Tote: For all those whose heart belongs to California, this screenprinted tote bag is perfect for both showing your love and carrying around a tablet or other tech devices. Totes are personally my favorite type of bag to carry around my laptop or camera because usually I already have them protected in cases or sleeves, and totes seem less glaringly carrying expensive devices within.

Incase Hearts Book Jacket: There's a little splash of pink here, but this overwhelmingly monochrome protective cover for the iPad mini complete is the sort of protection for portables I like to partner with the likes of the tote above. Two viewing angles and one working angle are integrated into the design for typing while a pebbled texture complements the heart-themed black and white exterior.

Bluelounge Sumo: available in both black and white, this small desk accessory's name implies its strength at holding down cables and wires in place when adhered onto smooth desk surfaces, thanks to a micro-suction design. Don't worry, it's not permanent...the Sumo peels off without marring the surface with a slight angled tug.
