So I finally got in the game and got the iphone 4. The Verizon iphone that is. It's changed my life but you know all that. The challenge now is when it comes to acquiring a chic case. You see, the reason this is tricky is because there is a slight variation in the button placement, so the iphone 4 cases for AT&T do not fit my new, shiny tech savvy object. Companies are racing to launch them, but they are not very good looking. I have done some digging around and found a few styles worth a mention. Since my phone is quickly becoming an appendage, I need a case that does two things: it looks great and it protects my glossy, gorgeous photo taking miracle of a device. Now for the hard part: how do I choose?

For the monogram variety, these are my picks:

Claire Bella has theirs made by Case Mate, a leader in the category. Choose from 12 patterns and 13 accent and font colors.

Lipstick Shades has a great assortment as well:

Lipstick Shades has just launched monogrammed versions that capture the joie de vivre of Tibi and Milly clothing and verve of Quadrille fabrics. I like their motto, add some "style while you dial."

Case Mate has an understated chic Reptile Barely There Case in a soft green.

A fashionable Reptile aubergine rubber case from Switch Easy has a good grip factor and will soon be made to fit the Verizon iphone 4

Solid Color:

The Pantone Collection from Case Scenario offers a plethora of rainbow Pantone shades.

Clean and classic the Gold Barely There Case is a good choice if you want to look glamorous.

With a matte, rubber finish in the perfect shade of lavender, the Colors case is easy to hold and hard to put down. From Switch Easy, it will be out for the Verizon phone soon.

LOVE THIS. So easy to find in your purse. I have a Kate Spade one for my 3G (I have 4G envy now).

I am waiting patiently to get an iphone this summer (when my plans allows me to get one). These are the perfect accessory, hard to pic which one. Maybe I will get a few and change when the mood strikes.
