Summer’s Best Turquoise Accessories

Everyone has a birthstone. Whether or not you wear it is your business, but if summer had an official stone, we’d hedge our bets on turquoise. Blame festival fashion, boho babes and fashion’s perennial obsession with the wild wild west, because when the temps start to climb, we reach for our turquoise. But today, it’s not just chunky jewelry, because designers are offering high fashion takes on turquoise. It’s sleek, sophisticated and whimsical, too. We’ve found plenty to give this season a high-impact punch of color with bags, baubles and picks for your home, too.
