When it comes to style, whether in my home or my wardrobe, tortoise shell is on my short list of loves. I've always considered tortoise shell a classic pattern. I love it year around, but as we near fall, I'm crushing hard. Apparently, I'm not the only one, because I've seen it everywhere.
My approach to tortoise shell is simple: treat it as a neutral. Just like leopard, it lays the ground work for beautiful layering that makes an outfit or space unforgetable. Whether that's with a classic striped tee or a button down paired with gold accessories, or a tortoise shell piece of decor that lays the foundation for all your pretty patterns in your home to play together.
I love a touch of tortoise shell with my accessories too. I think the perfect bangle set or handbag, is the perfect way to finish off an outfit.
If you are new tortoise shell and unsure where to begin, try it with your accessories. It's an easy and inexpensive way to dress up your outfit and play with the pattern.
