iPod nano fashion: a lady's best high-tech friend?

iPod nano fashion? I was more than excited when Steve Jobs announced the new iPod nano. Not because I am a huge music lover but because of the multitude of different ways that I could use it. This new iPod nano is a tech geek girls fashion dream come true.

Follow along after the break to see just some of the ways I've been accessorizing with the new iPod nano, and how well it's been working out.

iPod nano hair clip

This may be more of a dream than a reality. I found that if you use the iPod nano all alone in your hair it is prone to slipping out. If you are going to put it in your hair it is much more secure if you attach it to a hair elastic. It was already slipping out before I even began to walk around. I think if Apple has added a bit of rubber to the edges of the clip it would be much more secure. Steve why did you let me down!

iPod nano pony tail clip

Wearing the iPod nano in your hair is quite cute but lacks the functionality of being able to actually see the new 1.5-inch screen. If you already have a playlist playing and are comfortable using the headset remote buttons to play, pause, and change, its ok but still not ideal. It was quite secure though. You could even go jogging and have them stay in place.

iPod nano watch

The iPod nano is just screaming to be used as a watch. It is the perfect size and with a multitude of different functions it may be the first in a new smart watch generation. Get real iOS and and App Store onto this bad boy and there'd be no stopping us. For the band I use a tight fitting bracelet which is not too thick. This way the clasp on the iPod Nano is able to fully close. I also really liked attaching the iPod nano to my hair elastic. It was quite secure and comfortable.

iPod nano earring

Yes the new iPod nano are very capable of being used as earrings. It is easy to use some two part epoxy and attach a loop and then a regular fishhook earring holder. It is a bit heavy for an earring (though I have worn heavier). It would also present the same issue of not being able to easily change your application or music. For the picture I just clipped the nano right onto my ear, this was not the most comfortable of ways to wear it, however, nor was it very secure.

iPod nano necklace

This is one of my favourite ways to wear the iPod nano. It makes a beautiful show piece and is very user friendly. It is also very beautiful and when I go around people just think it is another piece of jewelry. Then I turn it on and everyone is left in awe.

And more...?

I am sure that I have just covered the tip of the iceberg with some cool new ways to wear your iPod Nano. If you have any other cool new ideas, comment away!

Gimme Some Suger Baby says:

Nice. The watch is admittedly cool.

justinleon says:

Apple should make an blinged out version with diamonds!

Maniacfive says:

i give it about a month before we see belt buckle, watch strap and necklace accessories for the Nano, in a variety of outfit matching colours.

Chuck Henrici says:

Apple Marketing Department needs your help Georgia.

JNGold says:

Georgia,
You're holding it wrong. :)

The Reptile says:

Georgia, I see runways in Milan and Paris in your future.

Glenn#IM says:

Sold in all fine jewelry shops. It you leave it on for looks, how long does the battery last.

Mr79 says:

I lmao at the earing shot... Look at her ear lobe, rofl!!
ouch!

Chris says:

Woah...slow down there Greg iPhone user -
Not all tech stuff has to be used as it was intended. My wife, I'm proud to say, it quite the geek. And women naturally like to accessorize. This article has a place in geek/tech culture. It may not be your cup of tea, but not everything has to be so serious.

BrindawithanI says:

The watch is awesome and makes me want a Nano! Good job Georgia!!!

Nettwerk says:

Omg she is so beautiful. Yummy

Jenny says:

I would actually do that. matches my nails no jk

Mbrown655 says:

There was a nano in those pics? ;)

OrionAntares#CB says:

@Greg
Wait, I thought the whole point of Apple products was about fashion (form-over-function) and accessorizing?

Kick Butt Applications says:

I needed a good laugh! I might use one as a belt buckle.
Thanks

tommy says:

going definitly use one as a watch that's badass

Maya says:

Interesting... In all reality, I'm loving the watch and necklace concept.

derrythe says:

Well, I can't say that the topic really resonated with me, but who can complain when it brings pictures of a pretty woman. Oh, apparently some people can.... Must not be into iPod fashion OR women.

Rene Ritchie says:

Comments cleaned. If this post doesn't appeal to you, please enjoy the previous or next one. If you would like to comment positively or negative, do it with respect.

Rene Ritchie says:

(and we'll cover the case program ending the week before it ends :p)

j00w00t says:

Grammar Nazi here. Jewelry (jewellery), necklace (neckless), and iceberg (iceburg) are all misspelled. Where are the editors?
On another note, a watch is the first thing I thought of when I saw the new iPod nano.

scottae316 says:

This was a fun review, it showed the Nano in a whole new way. I liked the way Georgia found ways to use the Nano as an accessory item. I really liked the pictures of Georgia but I have one question for Georgia, how would you wear that on swimwear oh like a bikini and could you demonstrate and post some picture? I am only interested because of my keen eye for fashion and fashion sense ;)

iion says:

I umm... wow... umm... wow. Sooo. How yooouuu Doing?

Glenn#IM says:

The case program was to end 9/30/10. That was stated when Apple started giving out the cases. I have learned more about the iPhone, and iPad on this forum. If you see a story that has not been posted, you can send it to tipb.com. I forget the link, but they are fairly quick about posting it. This is a great forum.

Kappo says:

Wow. Some serious censor issues here. All the nasty comments, sure. But there were posts with legitimate criticisms of why this was a bad story that are gone too. What gives?

Hector Sanchez says:

Hey remember that one time tipb.com promised cases for the iPhone 4 video runner ups?

Rene Ritchie says:

@Hector Ill follow up but they should have all gone out. We've given away thousands of cases in the last month or so alone.

Rene Ritchie says:

@Kappo Greg's comment is still there. As long as you're polite and on topic, we welcome any feedback.

creiij says:

Georgia looks great, the iPod Nano... couldn't care less =)

davec3275 says:

Georgia, This is a great article. This was some great thinking outside the box on how to use the Nano. I loved the idea about using it as a pony tail holder. But I think the watch is probably the best fashion use.

Georiga you could make a hat, or a brooch, a pterodactyl. . .
