Statement glasses are having their moment in fashion.

I have my iconic black ones—and about six other pairs. The truth is that I need my glasses to read or apply makeup and when I want to be sharp. (OK, I look better in the mirror without them.)

A pair of tortoise frames inspired our Fall 2011 Tortoise Shell Collection, which is in stores now.

There’s something about the tones in the tortoise shell that adds warmth to the face and makes eyes stand out.
