tortoise shell reading glasses Reading Glasses Styles to Look For in 2017

Just like everything else in the fashion world, popular styles of designer reading glasses change year to year and even season to season. Fortunately our inexpensive reading glasses allow you to stay up to the latest trends without having to spend much.

Reading Glasses and Popular Colors and Patterns
This year the most popular color of reading glasses are the tortoise readers. Inspired by true vintage-retro trends, these distinctive patterned readers have mottled combinations of yellow, honey and brown patterns, yes, just how a turtle looks. The past few seasons in the fashion industry were all about florals, graphics and stripes. This year the abstract pattern is back in the mainstream and we love it. With industry leading designer like Alexander McQueen, and Michael Kors’ using this most classic pattern we are now seeing it everywhere in the fasion world including designer reading glasses.

Tortoise shell works for well with warm and cool skin colors, as the colors in the tortoise pattern pull tones from both warm and cool palates. On cooler skin colors, like plum, pink, jade and black work well in reading glasses. On warm skin tones, colors such as yellow, orange and brown compliment the skin well. Since tortoise patterned reading glass frames have yellow, honey, brown and black, the frames works well for both warm and cool skin toned people. This retro 1950’s style is coming back across the fashion industry, but don’t worry. Thanks to advances in technology we are able to make these frames with plastic and not use real turtle shell. The use of real turtle shell was in practice in original Aviators but this was banned in the 1970’s.
