Finally, prescription eyeglasses that don't break the bank or act like a walking advertisement for couture design houses. Warby Parker is our new favorite brand. They not only offer a convenient shopping experience (the virtual try-on), they give the tortoiseshell its own genre rather than pigeonholing it to a single color or choice. For those of us towheads, a tortoiseshell frame (whether it's the light Fillmore shown above or a dark amber shell) softens the look of thick frames. Jimmy Dean did it so well, showing us how stylish a pair of tortoiseshell frames can be on one who's smaller-framed and fair-haired. We also like that it reminds us of The Talented Mr. Ripley, one of our unspoken, inspiring style guides.
