Spring Shoes- Styles We’re Obsessing Over

v ankle boots

If you’ve ever muttered the phrase, “I have enough shoes,” you need to reevaluate your priorities…

I’m only kidding, of course. Let’s be friends and let’s talk spring shoes.

Warm weather may still feel a little out of reach, no thanks to Mr. Groundhog, but our footwear selection at Glik’s is locked and ready for the first inkling of spring.

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m beyond ready to give my toes some room to b-r-e-a-t-h-e with a new pair of peep toe shoes! From casual sandals for a day at the office to more dressy peep toe booties for a night out, I’ll be reaching for this style on repeat.

I’m also looking forward to sunshine-filled days when I can bust out comfy cute sandals. Available in two colorways, the Bork sandals will look great no matter your personal style. These strappy sandals will finish off preppy outfits, or pair perfectly with boho fashions.

Cut out booties are a major trend to watch this season. This small unexpected detail adds a ton of interest to a basic pair of ankle boots. You can easily style these shoes with a pair of cropped jeans, or opt for a spring dress for a look that’s a little more flirty and feminine.

Lace Up Sweaters: The New Wardrobe Staple

Can we talk about lace up sweaters for a minute?

It’s no secret; sweaters are a wardrobe staple and will never go out of style. Personally, there’s nothing I love better than a basic, chunky knit sweater. Well, that was the case until lace up sweaters started popping up all over my Instagram feed.

The lace up trend elevates a basic sweater into something much more stylish and coveted. Just add a cute pair of ankle boots and simple accessories, and voila! Instant #fashionblogger style status with minimal effort. This alone is reason enough for me to get behind a trend.

This updated style gives a different vibe than a traditional chunky kit. You can easily wear a lace up top off the shoulder for a look that’s a little sexy, or you can wear it as is for an every day look. One sweater that can be styled two different ways? All the more reason to love a good lace up top!

Because lace up sweaters are a little more open, you’ll be able to take them from fall to winter to spring with ease. Major bonus points for versatility.

I’m also really loving sweaters that lace up the back. This detail adds an unexpected twist that takes a piece from basic to B-A-M!

Criss Cross Tops and Dresses |All about that Neck(line)|

The terms “lace up” or “criss cross” may cause you to immediately think of lingerie or a risqué Halloween costume, but a strappy neckline doesn’t have to be intimidating (or a look reserved for night time). This trend is something you can work into your every day wardrobe. In some cases, it’s even suitable for work.

Criss Cross Tops

criss cross tops

A criss cross neckline add a subtle, slightly rebellious, detail that elevates even the most basic pieces. One of our favorite criss cross tees is available here in multiple colorways and sleeve lengths.

You’ll want to add a few (or three or four) to your wardrobe ASAP.

Bralettes

criss cross bralettesA criss cross bralette can be paired with a v-neck or lower scoop neck top so the strappy piece peeks out at the neck and amps up the overall look.

Criss cross bralettes also work well with off the shoulder shirts. Not only do they add a little extra coverage if you don’t want to completely bare your shoulder, but it also adds an element of edge to your outfit.

 

LACE UP DRESSES

lace up dressesAnother way to rock a detailed neckline is a lace up or criss cross dress. A dress with a trendy neckline eliminates the need for a necklace, but can be paired with a choker necklace for extra style points.

Moto Leggings: Trend to Try

These bottoms fit like leggings, but give the illusion of real pants. Yes, please.

Both comfortable and on-trend, moto leggings pass the leggings-as-pants test because of one thing: the details. There are ribbed panels above each knee and zippers at the ankles, giving these pants an edgy but still very wearable look.

Moto pants will elevate any outfit, no matter how casual. Keep scrolling to see how we’re wearing moto-inspired leggings this season.

Moto Pants + Z Supply

We paired our olive green moto pants with a faux suede Z Supply tee and black ankle bootswomens moto pantsHitting right about the ankle, these pants are the perfect length to wear with short boots.

Moto Leggings + Freeloader

This is the outfit you’ll never want to take off (and I don’t blame you). This Freeloader clothing cardigan is made with a tiger brush fabric that is cozier than cozy. We had to throw another Z Supply tee underneath because they are just that comfy.

How to Style Your Piko Dresses for Fall

As the weather changes so will your wardrobe. It’s time to pack up the tank tops and shorts, and pull out the sweaters and boots. One thing I don’t want to pack up though are my dresses! I love dresses and I am always trying to find ways to style them for the fall. I’ve taken our favorite Piko Swing Dress and styled it three different ways for fall.

Layer it with a blanket scarf

If you don’t have a Piko dress in your closet, I recommend changing that immediately. Piko dresses are so simple and go perfectly with just about anything. When it comes to layering, Piko dresses will be your go to item. Throw a jacket or vest over your dress for a comfortable but yet flattering look. I’ve layered my striped Piko dress with a plaid blanket scarf. Don’t be afraid to mix your prints!

Tie it together with a plaid shirt

Plaid is the must have staple piece for fall. You can never have too many plaid button down shirts!  There are many different ways to wear a plaid shirt, you can layer it under a vest, wear it open with a V-neck tee or tie it around your waist with a dress. I took a solid color Piko Dress and tied a plaid shirt around my waist to add a pop of color to my outfit. Some would call this outfit the tomboy look, but I’ve paired it with peep toed booties for a sassier look. Trade out those booties for a pair of Converse to rock the Tomboy look!

Top this Piko Dress off with a hat, a long necklace, and booties for a simple look that everyone will love.Army Green Piko Dress

The Catsuit: Your New Favorite One-Piece

You’re probably thinking, “What in the world is a catsuit?”

Well…

If a bodycon dress and a jumper had a baby, it would be the catsuit.

The catsuit is an elevated basic with an extremely fitted silhouette. This one-piece jumpsuit has a sleeveless design that allows for endless styling opportunities, no matter the season.

Regardless of how you style this one-piece body suit, confidence is key. Find layering pieces and accessories that work for you and you’ll look nothing short of fierce in this hot trend!

Here’s how we’re wearing our cat suits:

Look 1

black jumper outfit

Pair a black catsuit with a quilted bomber jacket, caged ankle booties, and a black velvet choker necklace for an athleisure inspired look. Complete your outfit with gold rings and matte red lipstick.

LOOK 2

gray jumper outfit, the catsuit trend

You can also rock a 90’s inspired girly-grunge look with a grey jumpsuit. Try tying a buffalo plaid shirt around your waist, throwing your hair in a messy topknot, and sliding on your go-to black Converse. Finish this look with an all black baseball hat and simple stud earrings.
