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.

Fall Fashion Finds Under $50

fall fashion under $50

Another season, another chance to vamp up your wardrobe!

With the official beginning of fall coming in a few short weeks, it’s time to find pieces you’ll want to wear all season long. Thankfully, bringing new life to your closet doesn’t mean you have to break the bank. I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite must-have pieces that are all under $50. Feel free to do a little happy dance.

It’s time to bust out the booties! There are two major factors to consider when buying a new pair of ankle boots: color and comfort. Taupe, black, and brown are three colors that you’ll get a ton of wear out of this season and next.

As the temperatures drop, you’ll need a good pair of jeans in your rotation. KanCan Jeans are not only affordable, but they also fit like a dream! At only $39 for most styles, consider adding a pair of mid-rise and low-rise  skinnies to your denim collection.

Nothing says fall fashion like a Piko top! There are so many colors and styles to choose from at Glik’s, but this burgundy tunic is one of my favorites for autumn.

Is it really even fall if you’re not wearing a vest? My all time favorite quilted vests are from Thread and Supply. The quality of these vests is amazing for the price point and the selection of colors makes it impossible to choose just one!

 It’s not all about bundling up this season, especially at the start. I love this olive green dress from Blu Pepper. The lace up neckline is perfectly on-trend, plus it’s a style steal at only $39.

Lastly, accessories are just as important as your outfit itself. My favorites for fall include CC Beanies, a cute plaid scarf, a lace bralette, and a black choker necklace. Any of of theses pieces will instantly elevate your #ootd.

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.

Trend Spotting at MAGIC 2016- Women’s and Shoes

Fashion, especially fast fashion, is constantly evolving and changing. Trying to keep up on the latest trends can be more than any one person can handle. That’s where we step in and do the legwork for you so when you walk into a Glik’s, all the latest and greatest fashions are available to you without the guesswork.

One of our main resources for trend spotting is tradeshows. Our buying team recently attended MAGIC, one of the biggest tradeshows of the year. Walking through the different shows at MAGIC is like walking through a gigantic mall, on a Saturday, at noon, when every store is having a sale. Basically, MAGIC is chaos. It is wonderfully crowded with booths full of great fashion and stylish people.

If you want to be in the know on upcoming trends, keep reading.

Shoe Trends:

1. Color is key. 

Earth tones, shades of olive green, and blush are predicted to be major players for Spring 2017. These colorways were available in styles ranging from lace up ballet flats to ankle boots.

2. It’s all in the details.

Cut out details are trending now for fall and this trend shows no sign of slowing down come spring.

3. Say goodbye to the middle man.

While a classic pair of riding boots is still a style staple, ankle boots and over-the-knee boots are the next big thing in footwear. Be on the lookout for over-the-knee boots coming soon to Glik’s!

Whether it was olive green, army green, or somewhere in between, this trendy hue is at the forefront of fall fashion. This neutral shade will continue into spring 2017, so you’ll be able to wear your favorite pieces now and later.

3. Slay in (faux) suede.

This fabric is both buttery soft and oh-so-stylish. This combination leaves no doubt that faux suede is a trend to try.

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.

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.

Fast Fashion: A Style Evolution

“Fast Fashion” is a new term that the fashion industry is using lately. It is changing the way consumers shop and the way retailers stock their shelves. Fast Fashion is more than just a movement, but it is causing an economic shift. However, many do not know what it even means. Retailers are able to quickly react to the popularity of certain items, and are able to hold back on items that do not do so well. Fast Fashion also allows customers to create their own sense of personal style because they are able to test out a large variety of fast fashion items.

Recently, our intern had the opportunity to study abroad in China and do research on the process of fast fashion. While in China, she observed fabric markets, fabric mills, production factories, showrooms, and finally in store layouts. Fast Fashion excels because the production line in short. One factory in China, had a production turn around of less than 30 days. This time period allowed the brand to excel and gain profit quickly, because they reacted to their customers needs quickly.

The Outcome of Fast Fashion

Due to Fast Fashion stores are able to produce and sell the trendiest outfits. There is now slight competition for who can get the product out first, however, it also allows stores to re-brand themselves constantly. Stores are able to have numerous styles in stock, with different colors, and different patterns. Furthermore, the consumer is able to be any style of shopper she wants.

How to Wear Ankle Boots in Summer

When the temps rise, our first inclination is to bust out open-toe sandals. And while summer sandals are necessary to beat the heat, there’s something about a chic pair of ankle boots that can’t (and shouldn’t) be ignored, even when it’s warm out.

Booties are not only a summer footwear staple, but the right pair can easily be a year-round essential in your wardrobe.

Ankle booties and ripped skinny jeans are the perfect companions for an on-the-go look this season! Complete the look with a crochet lace Ryu top and festival hat.

You can also pair a mini dress, like this striped dress from Jack by BB Dakota, with a short pair of black ankle boots. Remember, keeping the hemline of your dress above the knee will help elongate your legs!
