It’s only the color of nearly everything that’s amazing about Summer: clear skies, tropical water, swimming pools, and select varieties* of bubblegum ice cream (*the best varieties that is). Wear it head-to-toe for a turquoise take on the monochromatic look, or piece it with crisp white or bright yellow.
