Great Shapes for Tortoiseshell Color Prescription Glasses
The tortoise prescription glasses pattern is ideal for just about any skin tone and face shape. It looks particularly familiar on thick cat eye acetate frames. This is the frame shape we are especially familiar with and often associate with librarians and adventurous intellectuals.
Tortoise eyeglasses are also suitable on acetate frames that are oval or rectangular. The longer frame design highlights the classic color texture. On smaller, more minimalist frames, such as browline and wireframes, the texture doesn’t show up as well.
For those who like to pay attention to the details, a little tortoiseshell pattern at the temples of eyewear with thinner acetate can give a familiar nod to the classic pattern without committing to the pattern on the entire frames.
Variety of Tortoiseshell Colors Available
Tortoiseshell glasses frames used to come in brown. Today, an array of colors are available. Brown looks great on most faces but there’s nothing wrong with choosing something bright and flashy, getting frames to match your outfit, or choosing something untraditional to add a little flair. Choose from black gray, green, blue, pink, or even clear tortoise shell glasses patterns. There’s something for everyone.
Lenses for Your Tortoiseshell Prescription Glasses
Tortoiseshell Prescription glasses are the ideal choice if you want to add lens colors. For a retro look, gradient brown or Drivewear(™) lenses are a great choice with tortoiseshell sunglasses. You might also choose a solid polarized tint for a classic look. And if you like to be flashy, consider gold mirrored lenses with tortoise eyeglasses.
