Teal: what color is truer to summer than this cool, inviting shade? For me, the thought of it instantly conjures up images of ocean waves, pristine lakes, Navajo-inspired jewelry, picnic blankets, friendship bracelets, tongue-staining popsicles, and sparkling pools.

Even in the fashion world, the happy color pops up everywhere during the summertime… perhaps because it looks so gorgeous against bronzed skin.

Here are a few teal items we’re coveting this week:

Ray-Ban Wayfarers

Triwa watch

Tibi washed-silk maxi

Gemma Redux stone necklace

Converse sneakers

Another way to add a pop of this summer-y shade to your look: a swipe of blue liner, like tarte cosemetics Amazonian clay waterproof eyeliner in deep teal. If you’re the type that shies away from brightly colored eye makeup, take the plunge and find out how subtle (and fun!) it can be.

And now, it’s time for that popsicle.
