Are These iPad Cases Or Clutches? You Decide (PHOTOS) (PHOTOS)

For many of us, our technology is like another appendage -- it's rare that we leave the house without some sort of electronic device, or go so far as to let our laptops sleep anywhere other than on our nightstands. Luckily, fashion has followed our dependency and created some seriously stylish totes to help us schlep these things around, and look chic while doing so. Case in point: The iPad sleeve. While they used to be slightly boring but always durable, designers like Marc Jacobs and Diane Von Furstenberg have taken it upon themselves to create versions that double as cool, colorful clutches in a mix of fabrics and prints.

So the next time you go to grab your iPad and race out the door, cover it up with something more attention-grabbing than the one you got free with purchase at the Apple store. If you're in the market for an iPad sleeve that could almost double as a clutch, click through the gallery below to see our picks for the best seven available now.
