5 chic and fun laptop sleeves
Did anybody else feel envious of Alicia Silverstone’s remote-controlled closet in the movie “Clueless”? Sure, our Tandy computers may have still been dial-up and our cell phones the size of bricks — but we knew during that very moment that fashion and technology looked great together.
Now, our laptops, iPads and kindles are extensions of us — so why not protect them in covers that reflect our style.
Here are five sleeves we are crushing on.
Vintage typewriter case: Your laptop is just like a typewriter, except you don’t have to start over if you make a typo. And, you can get on the information superhighway with it. And … okay, technology has come a long way — and that’s why we love this vintage-like case to remind us of our roots. (FredFlare for $45).
Tattoo-inspired sleeve: A tattoo sleeve for your laptop. Zazzle has lots of options. Our favorite is the water-resistant, tattoo-inspired design for your Macbook Air. Bonus: It’s customizable. Perhaps you could do a Norman Rockwell-esque design with all of your ex-lovers crossed out? Just kidding. Stick with “Mom.” (Zazzle for $65.15).
Do you like me?: For anybody who has ever passed a “Do you like me — check yes, no or maybe” note in grade school, this one is for you. With texting, this very cute form of flirtation could become a lost art form. Preserve it on your laptop case. (Urban Outfitters for $29).
Ouija board-like: You’ll most certainly want to take this to sleepovers. This “proper channeling laptop sleeve” will predict a future of safekeeping for your laptop and will surely generate a conversation in the coffee shop. It’s lined with corduroy. (Modcloth for $41.99).

Pretty in pink Marc Jacobs case: This designer case reminds us of a ballet shoe for your laptop. We love the soft pink, feminine color. The neoprene case comes with the signature Marc Jacobs lettering. (Saks Fifth Avenue, $62).
