Leather iPhone cases definitely fit into that category of "necessary luxuries" for me, and this J. Crew Whipsnake Case ($30) is arguably my favorite of the season. Its print is subtle, chic, and versatile — who doesn't love a little Winter white to lend a stylish edge to your texting and Internet browsing? — while its cover is strong enough to not only make your iPhone look good, but also protect it. The best part? It is real snakeskin, for $30. You can't beat that.
