7 reasons the rose gold iPhone 6s is a bona fide fashion accessory.
Last updated: 11 April 2016
iPhones are functional, sure, but they’re also pretty gorgeous these days, aren't they? They have a kind of minimalistic, futuristic quality that can also be playful, colourful and quirky. Of course, we use them to browse apps and make calls. But we all know that, when you whip out your handset, you’re also making a statement about your style, whether it’s the case, the colour or the headphones you’ve plugged into it. So, here are seven reasons the iPhone 6s has become a bona fide fashion accessory…
It comes in rose gold.
Everyone knows that rose gold is fashion’s favourite precious metal. It’s fabulous, feminine and classy. We were really excited by the rainbow shades of the iPhone 5c, but when the rose gold iPhone 6s came out... Well, it was like the older, classier sister. It’s so beautiful, it doesn’t even need a case. Unless you’re a dropper, in which case get something clear.
It has the best selection of cases ever.
Of course, even if you are lucky enough to get the rose gold iPhone, you might be tempted to get a case purely because some of them are so, so beautiful. Whether you want the glittery glamour of Skinnydip or the illustrated chic of Casetify, there are enough amazing cases out there to help you accessorise your outfit every day of the year - and more. If only money were no object…
You can match it to your outfit.
One super useful thing about cases is that you can coordinate with your wardrobe. Yes, it takes a lot of planning, but if you pull it off, it’s massively worth it. Even without a case, the naked rose gold iPhone is surprisingly chic. Our favourite trend is people matching their manicures to their phones. And have you noticed how many of this summer’s big colour trends go with rose gold? ALL of them.
All the best celebrities have one.
Selena Gomez, the Kardashians – even Jamie Foxx representing for the guys. As soon as the rose gold iPhone 6s went on the market, celebrities leapt at the chance to take a selfie with it and it flew off the shelves. And we all know that if the rich and famous are digging it, it means it’s in style.
You can buy matching headphones.
One of life’s greatest pleasures is just kicking back and listening to music non-stop from your phone. Whether you’re streaming or just scrolling through your library, headphones are what makes this possible. No longer just a functional wire that uncomfortably plugs into your ears, earphones these days transcend the practical into seriously stylish. Every colour, material, length and look you could possibly want is available on the market. Although we have to admit that the rose gold and white Frends headphones go with our favourite phone better than anything else we’ve seen…
Artists are creating amazing iPhone wallpaper.
Of course, you need to make sure that the inside of your phone is as stylish as the outside, but luckily thousands of budding designers and photographers are making this easier than ever with incredible wallpaper designs. Places like Poolga enable creatives to upload beautiful designs, ensuring that the beauty of the iPhone continues onto the home screen.
It’s a blank canvas.
At the end of the day the best accessory is one you can adapt to fit your personality. Unlike a pair of sunglasses that either suit you or don’t, or a lipstick that’s not quite your colour, the rose gold hue of the iPhone 6s is just the beginning. You’ve got a whole journey ahead of you testing out different covers, wallpapers, manicures and looks to make it your new favourite accessory.
