For a look that’s equally striking and sophisticated, stock up on tortoiseshell accessories. This classic pattern acts like a neutral, but it’s much more exciting than basic black. With a warm, brown and gold hued pattern that imitates the shell of the endangered hawksbill turtle, tortoiseshell adds a vintage ‘70s vibe to almost any accessory, from your smartphone case to your shoes and everything in between.
