What to Wear On Thanksgiving 2018

header

It’s already that time of the year again… THANKSGIVING! Can you believe!? With family traditions, shopping, great food, and holiday cheer, Thanksgiving is the kick off for the holiday season. With all of the busyness and chaos that revolves around Thanksgiving week, we wanted to put together a few outfit ideas for you! Keep reading to see four head-to-toe looks that will leave you cozy, stylish, and wanting each item for your wardrobe.

1. Shredded Sweaters

main-strip-outfitSweater weather is definitely here, so obviously this is a go-to look for the holidays. Statement sweaters are the perfect item to incorporate into your wardrobe.  We went with this shredded v-neck sweater from Main Strip. We ADORE this sweater so much, that we carry it in FOURTEEN (14!) colorways for you to choose from! We paired the sweater with an ultra-stretchy and soft pair of flared jeans.  These flare jeans from Cello Jeans are so great for the holidays because they have a pull on construction (fashionable look with a legging feel) so eat all of the turkey and stuffing you want! Complete the look with a lace bralette and a pair of neutral heeled booties, like these from Qupid Shoes!

2. Dainty Dresses

everly-outfitThis next look goes out to all you trendy girls out there. This corduroy dress from Everly Clothing is a timeless piece that features a delicate button front detail. (SWOON) This dress can easily be styled to suit your unique looks, but we decided to pair it with a trendy pair of leopard booties! We love how the animal print dresses the look down a bit, but if you wanted to dress it up, throw on a pair of sheer tights and heeled ankle booties or a pair of over the knee boots. Since the temperatures are dropping at this time of the year, you’ll need a dependable, yet fashionable, jacket! Snag this fur lined corduroy jacket from Thread & Supply and you’ll never want to take it off.

3. Sleepy Sherpas

threadsupply-outfitLet’s face it, this is what the majority of us will wear (or dream of wearing) on any holiday! (Let alone any day of the year, but that’s a battle for another blog post. 😉 ) This outfit will let you stuff your face with as much food as your heart desires, followed by a nap wherever you land, and then you will 100% wear the look on repeat weekly.  Our Thread & Supply Lazy Sunday sherpa pullover is the hottest item, so you’ll FOR SURE want one in each color. Sherpa pullovers are what dreams are made of; they’re like a soft blanket you can wear in public without being judged. We paired it with one of our many graphic tees from Charlie Southern that we are quite literally obsessed with and a pair of black fleece lined leggings. Finish this snuggly look with a high-quality pair of Sperry Duck Boots!

4. Charming Cardigans

lovestitch-outfitThis final look is definitely for when you want to look like you made an effort in how you look for the holidays, without sacrificing any comfort. This Love Stitch Clothing popcorn cardigan is sooo buttery soft and comes in multiple colors. It is extremely warm and such a great investment since you can wear it as a fashion piece and as outerwear! We layered it over one of our Wishlist Clothing bodysuits, which needs to become a staple in your year-round wardrobe if it isn’t already. Complete the look with a pair of versatile denim jeans, like these from Nature Jeans, and a pair of tall boots, like these from MIA Shoes.

BRAND SPOTLIGHT: THREAD & SUPPLY

Thread & Supply Outerwear

We are absolutely in love with this brand, and we wanted to share some of our favorite styles with you! This way you’ll be fully prepared for creating your Christmas wish list without forgetting about the most stylish styles of sherpa and other fabulous outerwear.  With so many new styles… how do you choose? Well, check out this easy break down of styles and why we love them all. We’re sure you’ll fall in love with one (or three) of these pieces from Thread & Supply after reading through today’s blog!

 

Lazy Sunday SherpaAll we want to do is cuddle up in this Lazy Sunday pullover and watch our favorite TV shows on repeat! The jersey-knit inner lining sets a precedent for the rest of the Thread & Supply Sherpa styles, creating a statement piece that finally cares about the comfort on the inside too. So cozy to wear alone or over your favorite tees for the ultimate, comfy and cozy look!

 

Stowe Hoody SherpaHOW DID IT GET EVEN BETTER?? We thought that we would only love the Lazy Sunday for forever, but now we are loving this zip-up sherpa hoody to no end! The Stowe Hoody from Thread and Supply will satisfy your need for an on-the-go sherpa that you can throw on over any outfit.

 

The Madison PulloverNeed a slimmer look?… Well look no further! We have found our new favorite, sweater style in The Madison Pullover. There is a super soft inner fleece lining that helps you to stay completely cozy all day long. So you can wear this alone, or as a building layer for your fall and winter wardrobe!

 

Marina Denim JacketThread & Supply isn’t all just about sherpa! They have us covered in denim outerwear too, and the Marina Jacket is a style that you will see in many of our social media posts because it’s just so dang versatile! We have loved the distressed details on this jacket, and we can’t wait for you to throw it on over your spring and summer dresses so you can transition them into the season with style.

 

Soho Sherpa JacketFluffy on the outside, wind-breaker on the inside! This Soho Sherpa Jacket is every kind of cozy. Not only are the two hand pockets cozy and cute, but the two chest pockets are functional if you remove the little bit of protective stitching. Whenever pockets are sewn shut, it’s so people trying on the garment don’t shove their hands into them. Pockets are for owners only, so cut the threads very carefully and you’re set with a your new favorite, four-pocket jacket!

 

Park City Reversible VestWe came, we saw, and we LAYERED. The Thread & Supply Park City Vest is one of our favorite layering pieces because it is the perfect finishing touch to any outfit. You can either wear the solid color out for all to see, or flip the vest inside out and rock the sherpa on the outside for a totally new look!

 

Mack Camo Jacket

If you’re looking for an over-sized jacket in order to complete your outerwear collection, please take this Camouflage Mack Jacket into consideration! The fabric is so comfortable, and the roomy construction helps it all come together to create a must-have jacket for fall.

 

Dillon Hooded PulloverWe have another athletic style to share with you! The Dillon Hooded Pullover is full of features to love, and we can’t help but lounge around in this perfectly cozy piece. Whether you’re running to class, to the coffee shop, throw on some sneakers, some cozy leggings, and this athleisure hoody and you will be set for the day!

 

Gilman Pullover Talk about a statement-maker! With how light and comfortable this pullover is in person, we just can’t get over the cozy. You’ll look fashion-forward all winter long in the Gilman Pullover thanks to the soft, quilted, ivory fleece and stylish navy accents.

 

Garvey Plaid VestAlthough the Garvey Vest isn’t reversible like the Park City Vest, the plaid outer layer that is super soft-to-the-touch makes up for the loss in versatility. Also, the beautiful fall colors that are present in this Thread & Supply vest are easy to coordinate with all of your seasonal staples, so this vest is still a big winner in our book.

 

New Thread and Supply Styles

We’ve introduced you to everything that we currently have for sale, but we just couldn’t wait to share what’s coming next with this amazing brand! We are so excited to share two gorgeous colors in the Drayton Pullover and the Paddington Jacket, as well as a must-have, buffalo plaid Miles Hooded Cardigan. Keep an eye out on our website for these highly-anticipated new arrivals! These styles are all coming soon to your Christmas wishlist, courtesy of gliks.com.

How To: Men’s Fall Fashion

header

With all of the attention on women’s fashion for fall, we had to be fair and give the men a little love too. Lately at Glik’s, we have been getting so many great new styles for men and we are so excited! Fall fashion is literally so simple for men to pull off, even though it can look like they put in SO much time and effort. (We know you guys get a little excited when this time of the year rolls around too.) These new fall styles scream comfort and versatility, which is what any guy wants in their style.  From street styles and layering, to casual and classy, we are sure to have the looks your man needs.

First of all, basics are the starting piece for any outfit, so fellas need to have staple basic pieces in their wardrobe too (think Active USA basic tees or 1897 Henley shirts). Once you have a few picked out, start thinking about your favorite pair of denim jeans.  No matter the wash or fit, they will be the best investment for cold weather fashion. Let’s face it guys, we know you have about 4 of the same pair of jeans because why fix what’s not broken? In that case, check out the amazing styles 1897 Denim and Axel Denim have to offer, they will be sure to become your new go-to.

denim

Now comes the fun part, layering! To some guys, layering may be a scary thing since they may not know what matches or what styles look good together.  However, don’t fret, fall and winter are the BEST times to experiment with layering and figure out what works best for you! Therefore, we are here to tell you that you can never go wrong with a long sleeve button down woven shirt, like one from Weatherproof Vintage! Then, depending on the temperature, throw on another layer with a cool Patagonia vest or an 1897 Sweater. Complete the look with a versatile pair of Crevo Boots and you’re ready for fall activities!

If you want to go the more casual route, stick with your basic t-shirt or henley top. Next, throw on some comfortable joggers and a classic beanie from CC Beanie or The North Face. Then, bring the look together with a pullover from Free Nature, a lined denim jacket from Brooklyn Cloth, or an ultra-cozy sherpa pullover from True Grit.

Voila! It really is that easy. We hope you have found some inspiration for your (or your hubby’s) looks for fall! You can shop men’s styles online or in your local Glik’s store! Need even more style inspiration? Check out the looks we put together on Glik’s Official Instagram.

Happy shopping!

What to Wear on a Fall Date

header

Oh the crisp, cool weather has finally arrived. That means it’s finally an appropriate time to bring out all things autumn and start thinking about those fun fall date ideas! Whether you’re going to grab coffee and donuts, go pumpkin picking and get lost in the corn maze, visit a haunted house, or attend a football game, your outfit has got to be ON POINT. So, guys and gals, we are here to give you a lead on what to wear for any of these occasions!

////Let’s start with the ladies…

Fall weather means light (or in some cases heavy) layers and cozy fabrics.  We have been receiving SO many cute and comfortable (and affordable!) sweaters lately, that it is so hard to just choose one or two.  With styles from brands like Wishlist, Lovestitch, Elan, and Miracle, you’ll be sure to find a few that fit what you’re searching for! With sweater trends being so big right now, you may be feeling a little overwhelmed. THAT’S NORMAL.

Our favorites right now are buttery soft cardigans and light thermal shirts.  The cardigans are great to wear over leggings and fashion sneakers by pairing with your favorite graphic tee underneath OR dress it up by wearing a bodysuit, your Kancan denim jeans, and heeled booties! Thermal shirts are all the rave right now, so if you don’t already have one you definitely need to purchase yourself one right now! Waffle knit thermal shirts are a great basic that give a little more edge with the textured fabric.  The best part about our button down thermal shirt from Wishlist right now is that you can also wear it as a cardigan, SCORE!

When it comes to shoes and accessories, autumn is when it is time to shine.  The key is to find the most versatile, and comfortable, pair of boots or booties that will look fabulous with all of the sweaters you’re about to buy. 😉 And, you’re in luck because the shoe styles just keep rolling in and we are so in love with everything we have in stock right now! Depending on which type of date (day or night) you’re adventuring on, complete your look with accessories! Don’t be afraid to mix and match bralettes, beanies, scarves, and jewelry!

////And for the fellas…

Guys, we have to apologize to you for a sec. Every girl will tell you that, “guys have it easy when it comes to fashion!” Although that may be partially true, you men have a lot of expectations to live up to, especially when it comes to fall style! We are here to tell you exactly what to wear (so you aren’t panicking about what to wear 10 minutes before you have to pick up your date).

Invest in a few quality, flannel, button down shirts. These will soon be your favorite clothing item (besides that beloved pair of gym shorts you’ve had for years). If it’s chilly outside, layer up with a fashionable vest or sweater! You will receive style points, we promise. A nice, well fitting pair of denim will go a long way.  Check out the many denim jean styles we have for men from 1897 Denim, Silver Jeans, and Axel Jeans! Complete the look with a nice pair of brown boots, a leather belt, and a watch, and you’re ready to enjoy your date with confidence!
