THE BEST TORTOISE SHELL SUNGLASSES OF THE SEASON (AND HOW TO PICK THE SHAPE THATS RIGHT FOR YOUR FACE)

Sunglasses are some of my favorite accessories. No matter what the style, I am always drawn to tortoise shell sunglasses. They are so versatile, and go great with black or brown. Tortoise is huge this season, so I wanted to round up a few of my favorite options from Nordstrom

Picking out the right shape for your face can be tricky. I think multiple styles can be worn on various face shapes. Sometimes just trying on sunglasses in the store and looking in the mirror isn’t enough for me. I would recommend having a friend snap a quick picture on your phone of you wearing each shade. That way you can look at them all side by side and easily see which one looks the best. Here is a breakdown of my favorite tortoise shell sunglasses in various styles:

I am loving theses white tortoise sunglasses! Its a pretty twist on the typical brown and black tortoise. These might be my favorite. I like the bigger rims, and the silver hardware is a little unexpected for me since I usually always stick to gold.

Square (or rectangle) shades look great on lots of different face shapes. This style is pretty and classic.

Round shades are crazy popular right now. I sometimes shy away from round (I just can’t help but think some of the smaller round shades make me look like a bug), but these ones are proportional to my face and have a little retro feel to them, which I really like!

Nordstrom has an amazing selection of tortoise shell sunglasses in so many different shapes. Scroll through a few more of my favorites below!
