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

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.

How will you wear criss cross tops and lace up dresses this season?

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.

Introducing POL Clothing

WHo is POL?

POL is one of the hottest brands currently and is selling out in all Glik’s stores. Conceptualized in Los Angeles, CA., POL clothing started with humble beginnings from 2009 as a wholesale manufacturer and has blossomed since. POL is versatile, comfortable, and most importantly stylish. Regardless of age or style, POL capitalizes on everything that is trendy. POL has numerous styles ranging from tanks to dresses and cardigans. They are made out of soft fabrics and are dyed with a unique wash. Some of the most popular colors include: black, olive green, red brick, and ivory. Some designs include lace, added pockets and embroidery. POL is great for day to night outfits or just a casual outing. Here is a little outfit inspiration and reasons why we love POL! 🙂

 

POL Tanks

POL baby-doll tanks are one of their most well-known styles. They are cute, comfy, and are perfect for any woman. With unique colors, styles, and trims; baby-doll tanks are a hit! POL baby-doll tanks pair well with jeans, shorts, and leggings. Also add a long fringe necklace for an added feminine touch.

 POL Three QUARTERED sleeve

These shirts are perfect for comfy fall nights. They pair well with blanket scarfs and skinny jeans for a stylish fall look. They have small detailed trim for a feminine touch and have a Bohemian feel to them with their bell sleeves. Our favorite way to pair them is with leather black shorts or joggers.

POL Dresses

POL dresses are cute and comfy! They have the same baby-doll shape as the tanks, yet are slightly more feminine. They come in swing dress designs, as well as long maxi dress designs. They also have the same lace trim detail and unique stone wash look to them. Our favorite way to wear them is with a bright colored bralette and gladiator sandals! A great way to get this look would be pairing the MIA Tall Devi Gladiators with the POL dresses.

POL Cardigans

Finally, one of POL’s most feminine styles is their short sleeve backless cardigan. the cardigan is just a soft and comfortable as the rest of their pieces, but has a sweet backless detail. This little detail brings a big punch when it comes to style. It can turn any daytime outfit into the perfect going out outfit, and make any casual outfit a little bit sweeter! We recommend pairing them with racerback bralettes from Wishlist and denim for a cool street-style look.

These short necklaces are perfect for layering, but can make just as much of a style statement flying solo. Mix and match your long chain necklaces with a single strand choker or ditch the extras and let a simple choker shine on its own!
