The heat is really on--literally--which sort of brings down the motivation to dress up nowadays. Good thing accessories allow us to add oomph to simple summer basics without breaking a sweat. The easiest to slip on this season? Bangles! Stack 'em up a la Whitney Port and jazz up your regular tank top-and-shorts combo in seconds.

Some bangles can even be worn on more formal occasions. You can take America Ferrera's funky, chunky jewelry anywhere, from dressy events to a casual day out.
I can't get enough of House of Harlow 1960 accessories by Nicole Richie! I already featured an item from her collection in a previous entry but I just couldn't resist writing about her jewelry line again. This plated Aztec bangle is totally rad, and though it's a little off-topic, I'm loving the headpiece and necklace Nicole's wearing!
If we're going to melt in this heat, we might as well do it in style. Grab a bangle or two (or more!) before heading out the door!
