We need to talk about your phone. Yes, there's a handful of you walking around without a phone case, living chaotically. We commend that braveness. However, having a phone that looks like it lost a few fights with the ground is not a good look. Don't be that person.

The good news is that if you are on the market for a new phone case, there are great options for every type of lifestyle. Phone cases have evolved past their humble origins of protective shields to fashion pieces capable of elevating the tech accessory to a fully-fledged fashion statement. What's more, your favorite brands and designers are getting in on the fun.

The right designer phone case make you stand out on the gram, or tie an entire fit together. It's also a slightly more affordable way to buy into your favorite brand. Can't afford to drop a thousand plus on a Margiela piece? You can still tap into the Belgian aesthetic with a $260 case. Most importantly, they can protect your beloved device from any unwanted scratches, dents, or cracks. You can truly get the best of both worlds. Lucky for you, we have compiled a list of some of the best designer phone cases on the market.

Here are some wavy designer phone cases that add style to protection.
