For every season, there is a shift in colors for clothing and accessories. Certain colors trend throughout the year and just as we look forward to brighter, more vibrant colors in the Spring and Summer, we also gravitate towards richer, darker tones for the Fall and Winter. Even though clothing and accessories colors tend to be darker hues like black, charcoal, navy, and chocolate brown in the Winter, it doesn’t mean that they have to be drab or boring. There are some great prints, textures, patterns, and weaves in sweaters, shirts, and trousers that keep the darker hues of Winter from lacking panache.
One classic pattern that never seems to be out of style is tortoise. Accessories made out of tortoise shell since ancient times and have been coveted by men and women alike. The tortoise pattern is popular because it melds together blacks and browns and makes an interesting pattern out of basic colors. One great example of tortoise accessories are the wayfarer sunglasses found at sunglasses-shop.co.uk. Ralph Lauren takes the elements of classic elegance that he embodies in his clothing line and translates it into eyewear. The Jerry Tortoise sunglasses are designed with the traditional gold and brown hues within the marbled acetate frame. The lenses are a modified rectangle shape with a lighter shade for sun protection.
The Sunglasses Shop also has a pair of black tortoise sunglasses that is a little more demure when it comes to its tortoise pattern. You have to look at them more closely to see the marbling of the black and grey pattern that forms the tortoise look. These have the same great universal shape as the Jerry, but the lenses are more of a grey tone, which is still one of the most popular colors of the season.
If you are looking for some Winter friendly sunglasses, but the tortoise pattern may not be for you, then Polo also makes some quality Black Blue sunglasses. It is a contemporary take on sunglass style with the ombre black and blue acetate frames, along with the light navy rectangle lens. All of these Polo 4098 sunglasses are handcrafted in Italy and range in price from 94 to 95 Euros – not bad. It is a great place to get designer sunglasses that are both classic and modern in style.
