As the weather heats up, we're ditching our clunky baubles for lighter, airy fare. This Summer, we're honing in on delicate layering necklaces, diminutive statement bracelets, and whisper-thin hoop earrings (yes, they're back). Additionally, we're coveting transparent details that give off a diaphanous, modern feel, and tassel details for a little bohemian flair. See and shop our editors' top 14 picks in the slideshow now.
Now that Thanksgiving is over, it's time to put down the pumpkin pie and try on something just as sweet: arm candy. There's no denying that bracelets are the accessory of the moment and that Gorjana is the bracelet destination of the moment. That's why PopSugar Shop is bringing you its sale event — $125 of bracelets and baubles for just $50. You'd be in a post-Holiday, food-coma daze to miss this offer. Beyond bracelets, which there are aplenty, Gorjana has a wide array of giftable accessories for your favorite people — or perhaps your favorite person: you. Might we suggest getting a little personal with Gorjana's collection of alphabet and astrology designs. From single-stud earrings to stackable rings, alphabet accessories are a chic and customizable way to delight all of your girlfriends this season. Add on a graphic belt, a simple hair tie, or even a quilted wallet and you'll have all your presents covered. Happy gorgeous Gorjana gifting with PopSugar Shop.

The city girl in your life is most likely in-the-know and on-the-go, so it's best to gift her with something stylish yet functional. Whether she's on the bus, hailing a cab, or hoofing it to work during a torrential downpour, she always looks put-together and impeccably chic. A slouchy carryall handbag that could go from office to evening or sleek pair of earbuds –– for rocking out on public transportation –– would fit this metropolitan gal's lifestyle quite perfectly — click through for my gift ideas for the snazzy city girl on your list.
We were smitten with Gorjana's leather studded bracelets, and now we have more to love — the delicate studs have made their way onto handbags and belts for Spring '11! Card holders, hobos, quilted crossbody bags, and single and double belts are all dressed up via gold or silver dots. If you're into serene hues, go for the grays, light pinks, and tans. Bold gals will love hot yellow, turquoise, and orange. Personally, I'm drooling over the quilted crossbody bags — too cute. Enter to see more from Gorjana's Spring '11 collection.
I can't think of a cooler way to spend Summer than with candy-coated wrists. Sound delicious? Then pick up one, two, or way more of these Graham Leather Studded Triple Wrap Bracelets by Gorjana ($55 each). They're super soft — you won't even feel them on — and a fine mix of edgy and girlie. Plus, they put your color creativity to work. For a serious look, pair gray with blue with lilac. For something more lighthearted, mix yellow, coral, red, and fuchsia. And to exude beach chic, combine aqua with turquoise with coral. The possibilities are endless. Fab tip: they also look good paired with watches, chain bracelets, anything really.
Did you notice the new Summer Sugar girls?! We all have snazzy new Summer 'fits just in time for warmer pastures.
My look was Isabel Marant-inspired, and I'm wearing the pant of the season: J Brand's Houlihan cargos. I decided to mix it up with yummy Elizabeth and James coral suede sandals and a purple tweed Isabel Marant jacket (now sold out). American Apparel's gray racerback tank is my quick grab (I have these in tons of colors), and a simple Gorjana layered gold necklace adds a smidgen of shine. And look! I got my hands on the Mulberry Alexa. Life is good . . . stay tuned for the rest of the Sugar girls' new outfit details.

You know you made them at camp. Lots of them. And though I prefer picking them up in foreign lands as mementos, I can't help but collect more and more friendship bracelets. When I zeroed in on Amanda Seyfried's futurama Doo.Ri dress and black sparkly Pierre Hardy shoes, I was pleasantly surprised to see a couple stringy, colorful bracelets on her wrist — here's a closer peek. I love sparkle and statement on the red carpet, but the unexpected youthful twist is totally fun. Take your pick: old-school string, rhinestones, charms, ribbons, classic chains, and beads. Or, go back to camp, and DIY!
Reese always pulls it together. Here she is getting coffee in LA in cozy basics, but she looks anything but shabby. Her black knit cardigan peacoat fits like a mitten, and cropped dark blue jeans show off her classic Lanvin flats. Subtle gold jewelry and Ray-Ban Wayfarers are thrown-on personal touches. Now if we can just find out who designed her cool studded bag? Any guesses?

Piperlime started its business with footwear, then added ready-to-wear, and now it's introducing bling to the family. Gap's sister company has made room for bold necklaces, eye-catching cocktail rings, unique bracelets, and even cheeky charms. Kate Spade, Kenneth Jay Lane, Juicy Couture, and Gorjana are just some of the designers on the sparkling roster. My favorite piece right now is this Kenneth Jay Lane Coral Multi Row Necklace ($113). It's loud, proud, and just waiting to be worn.
