The tortoiseshell pattern, once obtained from actual turtle shells, is now easily replicated with plastics. As evidenced by this trend watch, the brown-and-gold–flecked design shows up on everything from jewelry and home decor to shoes. Some of the unexpected finds include J.Crew headbands, Loft bow belts and Sam Edelman pointy-toe pumps.
