There are no one-size-fits-all tortoise shell frames. You must consider your skin tone and the frame colours, just like you would with any pair of glasses. Choose a narrow, light frame if you're new to tortoise shell eyeglasses. They look fantastic whether worn with black, blonde, or red hair. The real trick is to match the tortoise shell hue to your skin tone and characteristics. The brown-honey tones complement blue eyes well.
