Trend Watch: Tortoiseshell Accessories


We love discovering new trends and rely on our favorite blogs and magazines to keep us in the know. When we find a look we love, we tend to embrace it in lots of different ways – through clothing, accessories, home décor, and beyond. In today’s “Trend Watch” feature, see how Casey incorporates tortoiseshell into her life.

My affinity for tortoiseshell accents began when I was a pre-teen and my cousin Kenny started her own belt business. After perusing her impressive inventory of preppy ribbons, I selected a pink and green whale print, accented with a tortoiseshell buckle. While the print was a bit much for everyday wear, the buckle was the perfect neutral; and thus began my love affair with all things tortoiseshell.

In addition to the Insta-famous spoons from NYC’s Happy Bones, here are a few two-tone items I’m coveting these days.

  1. Oscar De La Renta Acorn Ice Bucket
    I’m not currently in the market for an ice bucket, but if I were…
  2. Tory Burch Chase Ballet Flats / Pumps
    If there is one true constant in life, it is Tory Burch’s endless selection of two-toned treasures. I love the large cuffs and sweet studs, but my favorite of Tory’s tortoiseshell range are the “Chase” flats and pumps.
  3. L. Erickson Hair Accessories
    For someone who complains about how Jennifer Aniston always wears her hair the same way, I could really stand to mix up my ‘do every once in a while. These adorable accessories may be just what I need to get creative in the morning. (I love the lighter tortoiseshell option!)
  4. FRENDS Headphones
    My pink earbuds have seen better days and it’s definitely time for a replacement pair. With these, my morning commute just got a lot more stylish…
  5. Accessory Concierge Half Moon Pendant
    This simple necklace will pair perfectly with all my favorite sweaters. Just a touch of sparkle makes the tortoiseshell shine!
  6. Tortoiseshell Mirror
    I have been on the hunt to find the perfect tortoiseshell mirror and have yet to find any I love as much as this (sold-out!) piece from One Kings Lane. They say you find love when you stop looking…time will tell!
  7. Neiman Marcus Glassware
    These wine glasses + my favorite Gewürztraminer + Scandal = ideal Thursday night.
  8. Bobbi Brown “Cool” Eye shadow PaletteSix of my go-to shades in a sleek tortoiseshell compact? Bobbi Brown continues to prove that she is truly a girl after my own heart.
