Elle spotlights that tortoise shell has resurfaced as the season’s most unexpected accent, turning up on everything from breezy dresses to wedge heels.

For my direct experiences I was completely torn between the Prada sunglasses I bought (the hipster pair I shared) and these Oliver Peoples Varadis 284. The dash of not-too girly pink is so chic! Trust me I was torn between the two but dropping another $300 wasn’t in the budget (insert shopping pang here).

You can also color me begrudgingly impressed yet again! At Jessica Simpson shoes. I was manhandling this pair that I so don’t need but admire. The tortoise shell runs along the bottom of the shoes too. The black Amanda is very, very fun.

Can’t ignore these Elle picks either:  Wedge sandal, Dolce & Gabbana, Sequin shirtdress, Chloé.
