The 10 Best Pairs Of Tortoise Shell Earrings Right Now

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

The SUPER-easy solution to a boring outfit? Tortoise shell earrings. Now don’t get me wrong…I love a big bold red statement earring, but sometimes it’s nice to have an earring that just goes perfectly with everything…without having to think. Jeans and a basic tee, patterned dresses, conservative work outfits, fun date night outfits…I’ve even thrown a small basic pair on with my workout clothes…yep, they work. Side note: For those of you cringing at reading the word tortoise in the same sentence as the words fashion accessories, please know that they’re not ACTUALLY tortoise shell. The ones below are all acetate or resin in a tortoise shell pattern. They look great with all skin tones, all hair shades, and so far in my closet — with all clothing colors too. As I said…easy.

    I wear tortoise shell hoops All. The. Time. and I get more compliments on them than pretty much anything else I own. Machete is a site that has all different shades of tortoise and all different shapes, as well. They really are super versatile and with the earrings and a couple of tortoise bracelets I feel put together with minimal effort! Now I’m thinking I need another shape, like the BaubleBar or Kenneth Jay Lane ones!
