Hot Summer Trend: Designer Tortoise Shell Sunglasses


Summer is here and many of us are looking forward to wearing the latest trends in sunglasses. Designer tortoise shell sunglasses are one of the top accessories to have on hand to add a touch of luxury to your warm weather wardrobe. A classic style, tortoiseshell sunglasses are available now in nearly every frame shape imaginable. It’s easy to find the perfect high-fashion pair that suits you best.

Before 1973, tortoise shell sunglasses frames were actually made from the shell material of hawksbill turtles. This stopped however, when the species became endangered. Today, tortoise shell frames are made from man-made materials such as acetate, which is every bit as beautiful and durable as the authentic turtle shell glasses of the past.

Every summer, tortoise shell frames come back into fashion in a big way. Why do they continue to be so popular? It’s because they are the perfect neutral accessory for all of your summer looks. This year, choose a high-fashion pair of tortoise shell sunglasses that will turn heads.
