If there were a patron saint of Palm Springs-apporpriate duds, Trina Turk would be it. The designer's based in the Southern California desert city, lives in this awesome house that looks like a cruise ship, and specializes in high-end pool-worthy designs with flowy silhouettes and loud, colorful prints.

To make lusty shopper matters worse/better, our desire for this summer staple is only deepened by the accompanying Tomato with Turquoise Stone Box Clutch ($98).
