HOW TO STYLE YOUR TECH

A definitive guide from The Modems

Our philosophy is that fashion and technology are one and the same, and you should never sacrifice one for the other. But finding the right kind of accessories to compliment your tech can be tricky, and there’s a fine line between a strong leather tablet cover and a tacky diamanté iPhone case.


With many of us now travelling between home, the office and our favourite brunch spots for work, it’s never been more important to keep your technology safe (and stylish).

Whipping out your MacBook from its new YSL case to take notes at morning meetings in the boardroom can be as much of a fashion statement as sporting the new Prada tote through the office at lunchtime.


For the modern woman, technology and style go hand-in-hand, so we’re here to guide you through the myriad of tech accessories on the market to find your perfect fit.


Kicking us off we of course have Chanel, who have entered the world of tech accessories this Autumn/Winter 2020, revealing two gorgeous Apple AirPods cases in leather. What better way to show you mean business when taking important calls than artfully popping them back into your Chanel when the time for talking is over? TTFN, darling…

If a case isn’t your style, why not simply accessorise the Airpod itself with a pair of these stunning Misho earrings? Styled like regular earrings, the Misho Pebble wraps around the Airpod itself to hold them steadily in place whilst you go about your business.

The struggle to find a bag that can fit all your tech in can sometimes feel like a lost cause, especially for ladies that will never sacrifice style for suitability. If the idea of wearing sweatpants to a boardroom meeting has you shuddering, the idea of bringing in a dingy laptop bag should be vomit inducing.


That’s why it’s almost life changing to see this simply *incredible* tech tote from Aurora London designed with technology journalist, Natalie Salmon, (and founder of The Modems) to finally put an end to horror. It’s equipped with a nifty envelope to slide over suitcase handles for those of us on the move, and the spacious interior contains a central zipped padded compartment sized to fit lightweight laptops up to 15".

Until recently, watches always felt pretty masculine to me and the Apple Watch is no exception. The sleek design is eye catching, but the metal can feel reminiscent of all the sports watches gone by and can often feel distinctly unglamorous.


Well fear not, as Hermes has answered our prayers and designed what is quite simply the most classically stylish Apple watch one could imagine. I think with this on my wrist I'd purposely make myself late, just so I could dramatically flick my wrists out to anyone and everyone around me to announce my departure.
