Shelling Out


The frames for your specs can make all the difference.

Photography by Eric T. White
Glasses can offer you another identity while hinting to others what lies beyond the lenses. And the frames make all the difference. Your best bet this season? The classic, elegant tortoiseshell. With its beautiful mix of dark- and light-brown hues, this just-bookish-enough design derives from a material that's been cool since ancient times (though now, tortoise-friendly plastics are used), and in the past century, tortoiseshells have become a favorite among geeks and rebels alike (James Dean and Johnny Depp have both rocked them). So slap on a pair of the specs shown here, and you'll be winning the fashion race in no time -- at whatever pace you choose to move.
