Navy Striped One Shoulder Maxi Dress / Tortoise Hoop Earrings / Tortoise Clutch / See by Chloe Glyn Wedge Denim Espadrilles

I love changing up my accessories. And I’m always interested when there’s something new to try. I’ve always loved Tortoise accessories and they seem to be having a moment so I thought it’d be fun to share a few of my favorite classic Tortoise accessories for fall and beyond!

It’s so easy to switch out your handbag so a tortoise bag is a great way to wear tortoise! This bag is a tortoise version of a bag that has been hot for a few years and isn’t going away any time soon.  My clutch is the perfect size and would be the perfect pop in an all-black look as well.  I love that this dress came with a tortoise buckle on the self belt. This clutch would also be great as a pop with all black. If you want a touch of tortoise, try this black bag with subtle tortoise hardware.

The easiest accessory to try the tortoise trend? Earrings! I love these simple tortoise hoops. They are super light weight and under $40.  These drop earrings are a gorgeous mix of tortoise and gold. You could also try some chic sunglasses. Or a cool tortoise buckle belt. I also love these sandals!

If you want something for your home…get these napkin rings. They’re really subtle and super pretty. This flatware is another gorgeous option.

Find more of my favorite tortoise accessories in the boutique below.  They are trending right now but truly a classic for any season just like bamboo.  I’d love to know your favorites!
