Designer cases for the iPhone aren't all that popular but when you find someone sporting it (or rather, someone's smartphone sporting it), you find that it's all cool and interesting. Quite a lot of brand case makers have produced (and continue to produce) good-looking designer cases. Here's a collection of some of the stylish and designer cases for iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s.
Note: We picked these cases not just based on their design and ‘coolness' but also based on how good they were (and the reviews they've got).
1. Otterbox Defender Series
Otterbox Defender Series needs no introduction. It's one of the most popular iPhone 5/5s cases out there and it's also one of the most professionally stylish case you can ever get your hands on. One thing that always goes with Otterbox Defender Series is that even though the emphasis is on durability and strength of the cases, the folks at Otterbox have an eye for functional design. And the colors are great too!
2. Belkin Shield Series
The reason Belkin Shield Series for the iPhone 5/5s figures here is because I like minimal designs. The case itself is quite simple – a usual polycarbonate case that's a good fit both in terms of design and functionality. But along with it comes the beautiful designs on the back. These stylish cases are affordable, durable and go easy on your iPhone 5. They're one of the finest.

Zazzle knows best when it comes to stylish, designer iPhone 5/5s cases. The sheer variety in the designer cases can be overwhelming. Most cases follow similar patterns: the cases are durable polycarbonate with a design on the back. Interestingly, they're quite varied and stylish.
