  • This season’s water prints are a lot like a crystal blue ocean on a hot summer day: awe-inspiring to look at and completely refreshing. Crashing waves, painterly beach scenes, and punchy underwater motifs are making a splash on everything from swimwear to tech accessories. On the S/S 13 runways, designer Naeem Khan channeled the surf in Hawaii with his Strapless Wave Print Organza Cocktail Dress ($3990, select Neiman Marcus stores), while Michael Kors found inspiration in the reflection of sun on the water when creating the Turquoise Digital Pool Duchesse Shell ($895, 212.452.4685) and matching Skinny Samantha Pants ($995, 212.452.4685). We think this picturesque look is perfect for summer’s sandy getaways and poolside soirees, so check out our picks now!
