How are you celebrating New Year’s Eve this year? Whether you are going out with your best friends or staying at home with your loved ones, it’s always fun to dress up! Although glitter is a girl’s best friend, we are straying away from the sparkly look this year. We are ringing in the New Year with some of 2016’s favorite trends, such as the cold shoulder, criss-cross necklines, peep toed booties and choker necklaces.
NEW YEAR’S Eve OUTFIT #1:
Step into 2017 with the latest fashions. We took our Elan Cold Shoulder Striped Dress and paired it with Jessica Simpson Peep Toe Booties for an effortless look that everyone will love! Complete your outfit with a Kendra Scott necklace.
Now that your outfit is covered, let’s talk about hair and make-up! No matter what length of hair you have, beach waves are always a good idea. Grab your curling wand and add some loose curls to that beautiful hair of yours. Top your look off with a smoky-eye and some red lipstick.
NEW YEAR’S Eve OUTFIT #2:
Perfect for a night out with the girls, this BB Dakota fur vest will leave you looking remarkable this New Year’s Eve. We layered this beautiful vest over a Wishlist Criss-Cross Sweater and a pair of black Flying Monkey Jeans. Keep the choker trend going by adding a Pink Pewter Choker necklace to your outfit.
Keeping the hair and make-up simple will do the trick for this look. A low pony and your favorite studs is all you will need. Adding shimmery eye shadow and nude lipstick will give this natural look a little sass!
NEW YEAR’S Eve OUTFIT #3:
Looking for the perfect New Year’s Eve dress? We have you covered. This Lime N Chili Lace Up Dress will be the prefect little black dress for the perfect evening! We’ve paired this Lace Up Dress with Jessica Simpson booties and a Pink Pewter Choker Necklace, that can also play the role of a head band. This look will have everyone’s heads turning!
Now that your outfit is on point, let’s make your hair and make-up just as pretty! A half up top knot messy bun with a few curls will do the trick to complete this look. Adding a smoky eye and a soft pink lipstick will leave you looking flawless all night!
Fray is the New Fringe
The past few seasons the fringe trend has been a huge hit! Adding a twist to the fringe world, they have added fringe denim, which is known as released hem, raw hem, or even frayed jeans. The frayed hem doesn’t stop at the jeans. We are seeing frayed shorts, skirts and tops too. The released hem trend isn’t just made on a skinny jean either, but also on a flared denim. One of our favorite brands, Flying Monkey, came out with a cropped skinny jean that features a raw hem and are a must have staple piece for this season!
Rules of the Frayed Jeans:
- The frayed hem should hit right at or above the ankle.
- Wear your raw hem jeans with pointy pumps, strappy sandals, ballet flats, casual sneakers, or ankle boots.
- Only wear one or two raw hem peices at a time, too much fraying could be an overkill.
We paired our released hem Flying Monkey Jeans with an Elan Fringe Sweater giving this outfit the double fray look. Keeping up with all of the trends this season, we layered our sweater over a Criss-Cross Neck Tee. And topping off our look, we paired our raw hem jeans with our Volatile Haisley Western Ankle Bootie to show off that frayed hem.
Happy September! As the weather gets cooler, we get more excited about fall. Military Jackets have us so excited this season for an ongoing list of reasons! You can dress this jacket up for a night out with the girls, or throw it on to go out to dinner. Either way, you will be comfortable while still looking stylish.
O L I V E
If you haven’t jumped on the olive trend yet, now is the time! Olive is the color of the season and this military jacket will be the perfect statement piece to add to your wardrobe. Styling this type of jacket is simple because it pairs perfectly with many different colors and prints.
THREE WAYS TO WEAR THE MILITARY JACKET
1. The Military Vest with Stripes
Are you obsessed with vests? Fall is made for layering and this Fate Military Vest is the perfect layering piece for transitioning from summer to fall. Everyone is falling in love with stripes, and they are pairing it with just about EVERYTHING! We paired our Jolie Nautical Stripes Long Sleeve Shirt with our military vest to create the perfect fall uniform.
2. The Military Jacket with a Splash of Plaid
Plaid is another print that works well with the military jacket. Our Staccato Twill Jacket features plaid elbow patches and hood lining that everyone is obsessing over! We paired our plaid elbow patch jacket with a criss cross neck top. Let’s talk about the criss cross front tops for a minute… THIS IS THE NEW BASIC!! The criss cross trend is exploding and taking over the fashion industry. Personally, I LOVE it!
Okay, now back to the military jacket…
3. The Military Jacket with an Edgy Look
We have taken the military jacket and paired it with a black top, black pants and burgundy heelS. Edgy, I know 😉 Both comfy and super soft, this black Z Supply Tee is made from faux suede fabric. This basic tee WILL become your new favorite tee! The black ponte Silver Jeans we paired with this outfit are softS stretchy, and offe a flattering fit everyone will love! We added a splash of color to this outfit with a burgundy high-neck bralette and burgundy heeled booties. This outfit will make a statement everywhere you go!
We’ve asked a few of our buyers here at Glik’s what their favorite items were. Cam was our first pick with the Men’s Long Sleeve Hooded Raglan by 1897. Let’s see how Cam styled his raglan.
A long sleeve raglan featuring a hood that is lightweight and effortless, no matter what time of the year you wear it: spring or fall.
This raglan has all the core pieces that you will need in a pullover. The raglan sleeves on this pullover are lightweight and flexible giving you a comfortable fit for any type of activity! The drawstrings are designed from rope and are fully functional and the front of this striped pullover features a kangaroo hand pocket. This men’s hoodie offers a fresh take on the classic pullover.

Cam threw his long sleeve raglan hoodie over a drop tail tee and paired it with his favorite joggers. Staying up with the trends, he wore his classic black Converse to complete his outfit. Cam steps into the office with his backpack and is ready to work on placing orders on more hot items for our customers!
Polly & Esther are our favorite plaid shirts here at Glik’s! We took this red and black buffalo plaid shirt and wore it three different ways. What is your favorite way to wear your plaid shirts?
Plaid Shirts With A Graphic Tee
Simply throw your plaid shirt over your favorite graphic tee for a casual but trendy look. We paired our favorite “Just A Small Town Girl’ graphic tee with our red and black buffalo plaid shirt and a pair of distressed black Flying Monkey skinny jeans. Add a beanie to this outfit for a more edgy look.
Plaid Shirts Under A Sweater
Stay warm and cozy this season by layering your plaid shirts under a chunky sweater. Just a little pop of the collar will give this sweater a whole new look. Adding a hat to this outfit will give it a classic look that everyone loves!
Plaid Shirts With A Dress
We are loving this 90’s look here at Glik’s! This old school tie around your waist kind of style is coming back! We tied our plaid shirt around our Piko t-shirt dress and paired it with combat boots and boot socks for a simple, but edgy hipster look!
The Queen of Plaids
We spoke with Jamie Stuart, owner and designer for Polly and Esther, on how the brand keeps evolving. “I have been designing Plaid shirts for 18 years. I think that the most important thing is to keep it fresh and new. We are constantly changing and plugging in new colors to make the plaids relevant to today’s fashions and trends. This year, we added the sweater sleeves and hoods to keep the styles and bodies different than just the ordinary plaid shirt. We also added Sherpa in the hood lining! Just wait until next year!”

Hello Autumn! The best season of the year is upon us and I couldn’t be more stoked to bust out my fall wardrobe. Here are my five fall favorites!
Wine Piko Top
Wine is my favorite color this fall and Piko tops are a must have staple piece. Add this color and this top together and you have the perfect fall basic. Dress this fall comfy bamboo top up with a long necklace and as the temperatures drop add a vest to this Piko top.
Long necklaces make for great accessory pieces. This neck candy looks great with a scoop neckline and can be adjusted to fit a length that works best for you. Pair a long necklace with a basic top for a classy and simple look.
Tall Riding Boots
Tall riding boots are a must have for fall. They look great with just about anything. Wear them with your skinny jeans and your favorite tops or sweaters for an effortless look.
Everyone always makes fun of distressed denim, saying “You paid money for your jeans to look like that?” Well of course we did, because distressed denim is trendy, and we girls love it. And let’s be honest, who wants to sit there and try to cut up their jeans to get the perfect distressed look? Distress denim is perfect for those warm fall days and look great with about any top!
Look by M Shawl Vest
Fall weather can be fickle here in the Midwest, one day it can be 80 degrees and the next day it can be 50 degrees, which makes layering great. One of my favorites this fall is the Look by M Shawl Vest, it is versatile and can be worn as a vest or a scarf.
Wine Piko tops, long necklaces, tall riding boots, distressed denim, and the Look by M shawl vest are my five fall favorites this year and I hope that you love them just as much as I do!
Everyone says you can’t wear white after Labor Day… but let’s be honest; the fashion police aren’t going to come after you if you do. So don’t be afraid to wear white jeans after Labor Day. Here are a few ways we like to style our white jeans for fall.
What shoes should I wear with white jeans this fall?
It’s that time of the year again, time to pack up the flip flops and sandals and pull out the boots! If you think it’s too early for boots, you can always wear your Sperry Top-Siders, TOMS or Converse until it is officially boot season!
Booties are always a must have for this transition from summer to fall. Wear black or brown booties with your white jeans to give it a fall look. You won’t regret adding a pair of booties to your boot collection this fall.
What kind of accessories should I wear with my white jeans this fall?
Scarves are a great piece to add to your outfit! Pair them with a basic and your jeans for a simple but cute look. And you can never go wrong with a statement necklace! Wear a statement necklace with autumn colored Piko tops and jeans for another simple look.
What kind of tops should I wear with my white jeans this fall?
Chambray, Brown, Black, Beige, Olive, and Marsala are all great autumn colors. Piko tops are a must have basic for this fall and will look great. Denim or chambray tops paired with a cardigan or a jacket will make your jeans pop this fall.
You can never go wrong adding plaid to your white jeans outfit. We are loving the plaid hood and elbow patches on this utility jacket! Get yours today before they sell out, again!
The transition from summer to fall apparel here at Glik’s is in full swing. The clothes I’ve seen cross my desk are so cute and I can barely contain my excitement! I just want to buy all over it!
And a number of pieces stood out as an absolutely key item that will not only be great this fall season, but will also help you transition your wardrobe from summer to fall. Don’t miss these 5 must-have items:
This Billabong sweater is going to be everyone’s favorite this fall. A lot of girls are already so excited to wear it that they are pairing it with their denim shorts. Fringe was hot this summer and is going to continue to be hot this fall.
Plaid shirts are always a must-have! They make a simple outfit so much fun. There are three different ways I’ve seen the plaid worn. Buttoned up, kept open or tied around the waist. Tying your plaid around your waist adds character to your outfit. I’ve seen it tied around the waist with a dress, denim shorts or capris. No matter how you wear it, you will always look cute in plaid.
Scarves are simple but cute when transitioning from summer to fall. The blanket scarf pairs nicely with our Piko tops. These blanket scarves come in a variety of colors making it easy to coordinate with your outfit. Grab your blanket scarf today before they are gone!
Fedoras and Wide Brim Hats
Hats are great for transitioning from summer to fall. Make a statement by adding a wide brim hat to your outfit. The chain detailing on this hat is the perfect finishing touch you need to complete your festive outfit.
Every girl needs a pair of booties! Booties look great with bare legs making them perfect for this time of the year. Pair these booties with your favorite dress and a cardigan to enhance your summer-to-fall outfit. If dresses aren’t your style then try wearing your booties with cuffed skinny jeans. You won’t go wrong adding these booties to your boot collection!
Any (or all) of these essential wardrobe pieces will make the transition from summer to fall that much smoother. And as a bonus, these items can be worn both now (of course!) and later (as warm fall layers!)
When I saw the sign that said “Give a girl the right boots and she will conquer the world” I instantly thought of my cowgirl boots. When I put my cowgirl boots on it’s like the whole world changes. They make me feel confident in myself, and I literally feel like I could conquer the world! What better way to wear cowgirl boots than to a country concert, here are three looks that I love!
I love wearing my cowgirl boots to country concerts and festivals! I put on my new outfit, curl my hair and fix my make-up to go see my favorite country artist perform. The one thing I love most about my cowgirl boots is that they match almost everything in my closet, from dresses and rompers to denim shorts and skinny jeans. A denim jacket or vest always pairs nicely with cowgirl boots on those chilly fall nights.
The Original Country Girl
You can find the original country girl wearing these Volatile Raspy Western Boots with a Silver Jeans vest. I paired this festive Amuse Society Clothing romper with these boots giving it the western chic look. Top off this outfit with a beautiful statement necklace and a fun fringe cross-body purse. This outfit will leave you dancing all night long!
The Classy Country Girl
You can find the classy country girl wearing these De Blossom Collection Western Boots with a floral dress. This floral dress is made by one of my favorite brands, Everly Clothing. For a sassy but classy look pair pearls with your floral dress. This outfit would be perfect for a meet and greet session with your favorite artist!
The Fearless Country Girl
You can find the fearless country girl wearing these Soda Victory Western Booties with a pair of blinged out Miss Me Jean shorts. My favorite basics are the Pikos. I layered a plain white Piko crop top tank with a bandeau under it. Be fearless by tying your tank in a knot and revealing your midriff. Show off your personality by wearing your favorite necklace with this outfit. And don’t forget your sunglasses to protect your eyes while waiting for the country shows to start!
