Tortoise Shell Sunglasses with Extra Spirit

Is there any accessory quite as classic yet contemporary as a pair of tortoise shell sunglasses? The timeless brown and black pattern gets its name because it resembles the pattern from the shells of large tortoises—don’t worry, no animals were harmed in the making of these stylish shades—and has been a staple of high fashion since ancient times. Whether paired with a luxurious faux fur jacket or a T-shirt and jeans, tortoise shell truly goes with anything. What’s more, its black and brown hues makes it easy to style.

Classic Colorways for Any Wearer

Here at Knockaround, we pride ourselves on designing unique, all-around good-looking sunglasses that don’t break the bank. Part of that commitment is choosing colorways that complement and stand out. We’ve paired our tortoise shell frames with an assortment of handsome, sophisticated and upbeat lens colors to help you find a pair that perfectly matches your style, mood, and general personality. Keep it classic with tortoise shell frames and amber lenses—something about gold and brown just plain works—or keep it fun with blue tortoiseshell frames and aqua lenses.
