Kate Spade Idiom Bangle, $32
We all love our smart phones, mp3 players, iPads, and all the other tech savvy instruments available today. We try to stay up to date with our tech accessories, so why not try to stay on trend too? We've found 10 must have tech accessories that we can’t wait to get our hands on and we think you’ll all enjoy them too! Take a look below to see some of the coolest ways to dress up your electronics.

April showers have suddenly evolved into May showers in NYC, and we can’t let the wet streets cramp our style, right? Like the saying goes, when given lemons, make lemonade! Maybe you can’t wear your most fashionable duds on the sidewalks while it’s rainy out, but you can wear your most fashionable rainwear. We have a few pieces picked out just for you to keep you looking stylish while getting through the rainy days! Check these pieces out and keep moving your fashionable foot forward!
Bubble Umbrella, $18
Graphic prints and patterns are always a great way to add some spunk to your style. They have been showing up on a multitude of frocks, from skater/snowboarder T’s, to denim, to chic dresses, and our current favorite, accessories. We are loving the look of the funky, graphic totes for summer and their ability to bring an outfit to life. With the bold statement that a bright, graphic bag makes, an otherwise plain outfit can really gain some great character. Mix them with other prints and patterns for a mad fad look, or go the simplistic route with black or white from head-to-toe, and they'll make a real pop on your ‘blank canvas’ ensemble.
The classic polka dot pattern is back in a big way. The pattern, made famous by Minnie Mouse and itsy-bitsy bikinis, is showing up on everything from hats and dresses, to underwear and umbrellas. Which means, for those of you who are pattern-shy, there is an easy way for you to incorporate them into your wardrobe too! No need to mix patterns if you don’t feel like it; these hot spots look great on their own.
