With its effortlessly tropical feel, teal is a perennial warm-weather mainstay, and this year is no exception: Pantone highlighted the blue-green Arcadia as one of spring’s top trends. Get yourself some island cool with these Stella & Dot Simonne Sunglasses ($129), which give teal the ombré treatment on acetate frames.

It’s a jungle out there—at least on the spring/summer 2018 catwalks, where leafy greens made many a cameo. Step into the trend with Kenneth Cole’s Viola Satin Fringe Slide Sandals ($99).
