With animal print anything all the rage, what else can we add to our wardrobes that goes with most everything in our closet? Tortoiseshell earrings! Most of the styles are resin and the tortoiseshell pattern looks very much like our favorite animal print. Others are made of calf-hair for an adorable touch of animal print. All are neutral in color and add a subtle but classic look to any outfit. You can see them styled everywhere this fall.
I have always been a fan of tortoiseshell, but mostly in sunglasses. I tended to pick up a new pair every summer or so. While I’ve worn many versions of tortoiseshell sunnies, this rounded pair is super fun and my new favorite! They are from Tory Burch, who can be quite expensive, but I picked them up on sale just the other day. This exact pair is already sold out, but I’m linking you to a page with other cute tortoiseshell earrings, on sale, by the same designer.
I love the new term for sunglasses: sunnies. It sounds very British or Australian, doesn’t it? The term probably originated there. Is that right, my friends from the British Isles? Back in the day, as in my day, we called them “shades.” Cool, huh?
Here are three versions of tortoiseshell earrings with a neutral top and cognac belt and bag.
Tortoiseshell earrings hoop style
Are you fond of hoops? You know they are pretty much my “go-to” style for earrings. Hoops can be worn with casual or professional outfits, so are pretty versatile. There is also a larger version of these resin hoops if you want to make a bigger statement
Tortoiseshell earrings in a drop style
Drop style earrings are a dramatic look in almost any style, and definitely in tortoiseshell. You can wear them casually with jeans or shorts as well as for dressy occasions. They are most definitely a statement piece. I am styling a pair from Baublebar that is no longer available, but this darling pair at left has sold out 4 times! So get ’em now if you like them!
Reversible drop earrings
Ever heard of or had reversible earrings? I love this pair! One side is leopard print. The other side is a brownish cat’s eye resin that goes with everything! I’ve worn both sides several times already. There is just enough length to make a statement and these earrings can dress an outfit up or down.
If you haven’t yet, pick up a pair of tortoiseshell earrings. You can’t miss them as they are everywhere. And they are the perfect final touch to an outfit that you are styling for fall. While you’re at it, pick up a classic pair of tortoiseshell sunnies, just for fun!
