Variations on Tortoise Print Glasses

Peepers Clark blue light glasses in tortoise

Classic Tortoise

If you’re looking for a classic print that won’t go out of style, you can’t go wrong choosing classic tortoise frames. This mottled brown print is a throwback to traditional tortoiseshell accessories, leaning into the luxe tortoiseshell aesthetic that people have loved for generations.  

Match Classic Tortoise Frames to Your Look

There’s a reason classic tortoise frames have been popular for ages. This timeless pattern is well-suited to just about any skin, hair, and eye color combination around. Against brown eyes or brown hair, the earthy tones will blend in, ensuring that the focus is on the other features of your face. If, on the other hand, you have blonde hair or blue or gray eyes, the classic tortoise print will pop, drawing attention directly to your eyes.

When it comes to dressing for success with classic tortoise frames, you really can’t go wrong. Because classic tortoise print is a neutral tone, you can match it with any look.

If you’re going for subtle, understated vibes, our gray tortoise frames are the way to go.

Match Gray Tortoise Frames to Your Look

If you’re one of 1% of people with gray eyes, gray tortoise frames can call attention to your unique eye color. This is especially true if you have stark black hair, as it can give you a luxe, monochromatic vibe from top to bottom. 

Gray tortoise frames also pair well with dark skin tones, especially ones with a warm or neutral undertone, as these tones look especially lively with soft gray accessories playing against them. Beware of wearing gray tortoise frames if you have cool undertones in your skin or very pale hair, however, as it can wind up looking washed-out rather than like a high-end fashion statement.

Gray tortoise frames are perfect for taking a professional look to the next level. Pair these peepers with a dark blazer or a little black dress to create a look that travels from the office to date night without a hitch. 

If you’re looking to dress gray tortoise frames down, dark-wash jeans are an easy choice. A black shirt or a classic black leather jacket will give you grayscale vibes that are very of-the-moment, while any pop of color you pair with these frames is sure to stand out in a fun, eye-catching way. No matter which ensemble you choose, you’ll have a Pinterest-perfect look with minimal effort.

Navy frames lie at the intersection of neutral and bold, creating a statement look while still matching most ensembles.

If your skin—whether light or dark—has cool undertones, navy tortoise frames will pull those out in a really beautiful way. They can also offer a fun contrast if you have an otherwise monochromatic look—platinum blonde hair and pale skin, or example—as they won’t wash you out the way other colors might. 

Navy tortoise frames are also a fun look if you have hair dyed unnatural colors like blue or hot pink. Unlike boldly-colored frames, navy tortoise frames are still neutral enough that they won’t detract from other colors on your body, but are bold enough to emphasize your fun-loving fashion choice. 

As for eye color, navy is a versatile tone. The contrast can make brown eyes shine, while the navy tones pull the blue out of hazel or blue eyes in a gorgeous way.

The variety of clothes that you can pair with navy tortoise frames makes them a versatile, wear-anywhere choice for people with capsule wardrobes. They can be dressed up or down without much effort and, like most tortoise frames, can pair just as easily with patterns as with solid-colored clothing options.

Peepers Curtain Call blue light glasses in tortoise horn

Tortoise Horn Pattern

Subtler transitions between shades of brown and black set our tortoise horn pattern apart from more classic tortoise prints. This animal-inspired look mimics the subtle transitions of tones on animal horns while drawing on the neutral shades that you’re used to in classic tortoiseshell styles. 

Match Tortoise Horn Frames to Your Look

Like classic tortoise prints, tortoise horn frames pair well with most skin tones, hair colors, and eye colors. Keep in mind that these frames tend to be a little darker in tone than classic tortoise frames, and so they may blend more against dark-colored hair. These frames are especially impactful when paired with deeper skin tones, as the black and brown tones can bring out complexities in a dark skin tone. 

Style Guide for Tortoise Horn Frames

Tortoise horn frames are a modern twist on a wear-anywhere style. Although they’ll look especially amazing when paired with bold colors, ensuring that the colors you choose stand out from a mile away, the mix of brown and black ensures that these frames can be placed against any neutral tone and look perfectly matched.
