In the heat of the summer, it's incredibly tempting to throw on a t-shirt and shorts and call it a day - on some weekends, we can barely even be persuaded to emerge from our bathrobes. So we've come up with a quick fix: sequins. They're small, they're fun, and they fit onto about any article of clothing. And what with the burgeoning trend, what better time than the present? We found 'em cheap, too:

Victoria's Secret
: 25 to 50 percent off swimwear. This embellished triangle top is a great way either to highlight a perfect beach body or to distract from an in-progress one. Plus, it brings enough fun for the entire look, so you don't have to worry about the bottom - pair it with any solid-colored piece and you're golden (literally). (Was $48, now $36)

French Connection: Up to 50 percent off. This Celeste sequins dress is cute, playful, and most importantly it's light - between the color and the breezy fabric, the frock should keep your temperature relatively bearable. (Was $298, now $212.99)

Nine West: Up to 60 percent off. We fully realize that you will either adore or despise these Escher sequined pumps, but we love harkening back to our Wizard of Oz dress-up days (it was a sad day when we stopped fitting into our kids'-size sparkly red shoes). Plus: instant outfit flair - jeans and a t-shirt are a boring combo no more! (Were $79, now $47.40)

Madewell: Extra 30 percent off final sale items. This two-tone trilby in "grassland" is - and provides - a great shade for summer (puns abound!). Cover up your hair at the beach if those salt-inspired waves don't quite go right, or feel really cool walking around the city (next stop: Wayfarers?). (Was $42, now $32)
