JUST VENTING: The color isn’t the only cool feature of these sold-separately pieces from GUESS. The bandage-style crop top and skirt have breezy, peekaboo mesh panels in front and back, plus icy silver spine/tailbone zippers that align but never quite meet.

COLD STONES: Colors from sea and summer sky conspire in stackable sterling silver bangle bracelets by Ippolita, a collection carried at Nordstrom. (Chandler Fashion Center, 480.855.2500; Scottsdale Fashion Square, 480.946.4111)
HERE’S A TIP: Phoenix manicurist turned New York trendsetter Deborah Lippman keeps a finger on the polish pulse back in AZ by selling her self-named luxury lacquers at Cos Bar in Scottsdale. Her “Mermaid” series pairs base colors with contrasting glitter. The seafoamy shade pictured here is called “Mermaid’s Dream.” (Kierland Commons, 480.607.2771)
FLIP-FLOP ALTERNATIVE: A traditional wooden shoe from India was the inspiration for these natural-rubber Gurus sandals, which were launched in 2013 through a Kickstarter campaign. Colors in the debut collection include tamarind (black), mango (orange) and mint (shown)—and if these names stir Indian cuisine cravings, go have dinner at Jewel of the Crown in Scottsdale (480.949.8000) or The Dhaba in Tempe (480.557.8800) before logging on to www.ilovegurus.com.
CALLING ALL TIFFANIS, TORIS & TATUMS: This pale-green leather handbag with gold zippers and buckles is spacious enough for summertime essentials—like a bottle of water, some blotting papers, and a hair scarf for a ride in a convertible. The initial T stands for designer Ted Baker, but you could say it’s for you. (Ted Baker boutique, Scottsdale Fashion Square, 480.946.0820)
