Tortoise Shell Glasses: Top 5 for Autumn

Anyone who holds a prescription has owned at least one pair of tortoiseshell glasses or are wearing one right now while they read this blog! Tortoiseshell has always held an unmistakable appeal for as long as we can remember.

They might be the most endured glasses for decades but back in the 1920’s, the actual Hawksbill Tortoise shells were used in the making. Quite an unethical fashion move that was a much sought-after item of indulgence by the capitalists.

Peculiar in their style and a keyhole nose bridge, like the ones sported by Matt Damon and Johnny Depp were a classic vintage piece to own. Although getting hands on those beauties might be difficult you can get yourself Reah, a modern look alike!

Thankfully, glasses manufacturers found an alternative that was ethical and mimicked retro textures brilliantly. Acetate! There has been no looking back since then!

Acetate tortoiseshell glasses can be found in grey, brown, black and even clear. If you are lucky you can even find them in red and blue undertones. Adaptable in any shape or design, they can be worn effortlessly at any occasion.

Designers say that their popularity is linked to how beautifully they compliment any skin tone so consumers can fearlessly buy glasses frames online Canada.

Tortoiseshell extends it's an elegance to prescription sunglasses too and Fendi’s 2012 collection of bespeckled tortoiseshell sure gave them a firm grounding in everyone's bedside drawers and wardrobe staples.
