Tortoise Shell Glasses- A Timeless Appeal

Old Hollywood Style

Also known as the horn rimmed glasses, this speckled eyewear are a favourite of many. When you buy prescription sunglasses online you can opt for a turtle’s shell glasses that have a stippled frame. This distinctive pattern of mottled yellow, brown and honey spots are actually very similar to the shells in real turtles.

JFK and James Dean wore them in the 1960s. Nowadays, Bruno Mars and Brad Pitt, Matt Damon and Steve Carell flash these with finesse on and off the red carpet!

With Hollywood sweetheart Ryan Gosling revolutionizing these iconic pairs, these glasses of a forgotten yore are back in full force. It’s time that you get your hands on the best tortoise fashion styles and revamp your own eyewear wardrobe!

Enduring Tortoise Shell Glasses

Originally, tortoise shell eyewear was popular in the 1950s. These glasses first appeared in the market when real turtle skin was used to make these. Post 1970, the practice of using animals was banned.

Your tortoise shell frames are not about one-style-fits-all. You have to think about your skin tone and hair color. While brown honey tones go well with blue eyes, a lighter complexion is best for classic brown shell frames. Darker complexion is best paired with lighter colors such as mustard and cream frames.

In order to find the perfect frames for your face and style, you’ll have to try on a number of different tortoise shell frames, and there is simply no excuse for not looking amazing!

And if you really want confirmation that tortoise shell is trending with men, just take a look at what the celebrities are wearing. Famous men, from both our past and current days, wore tortoise shell frames in different styles.

Most tortoise shell glasses are made of acetate and no turtle is ever hurt in making these beloveds. For many years black was the favourite color of your glasses, but times are changing.

These glasses are a versatile accessory to wear for a casual or even formal evening party.

You can veer away from the traditional mix of brown and black and choose multi colored frames at Optically to showcase your creative side.
