Kancan Jeans: Comfort, Aesthetic, Quality

With a new season comes new clothing.  However, when it comes to Kancan Jeans, we are a firm believer that their denim jeans are a MUST HAVE staple for your year round wardrobe. While some jean companies may claim they focus on comfort, KanCan has built their brand around the comfort, aesthetics and quality of their denim jeans. Since they are super stretchy, soft and comfortable, KanCan Jeans form to your body. They are flattering from both the front and the back because they are designed with a higher rise than most junior’s denim brands, keeping everything covered no matter how you bend or stretch. Because they are so stretchy and comfortable, KanCan Jeans may fit a bit bigger than other jeans in your closet. Don’t be afraid to try a size down!

Here is their size chart for reference:

Kancan Jeans offer so many styles and washes, that you will always need to add to your denim collection! Not only does Kancan offer their staple skinny jeans, but they also offer overalls, skirts, shorts, and other cuts to suit your needs when you want to switch your look up a bit! As we mentioned before, one of our favorite things about Kancan denim is their comfort and high waist fit.  The high rise jeans sit right above your hips, so they are very flattering on all body types.  This junior’s denim brand prides themselves on “providing versatile denim that is figure flattering to all shapes and being the classic wardrobe staple.”

Back to School Styles: Fall Preview 2018

It’s almost August, which means it’s time to start thinking about back to school shopping! I know some of you may be thinking, “UGH, do we have to?!” But, back to school shopping can be super fun since it’s the time when you get to start picking out your new fall wardrobe and be oh-so stylish walking down the halls. Keep reading to check out our top picks for Fall 2018!

cardigan

The most staple of all fall outfits is this look. It is great for almost any occasion, and can be SO versatile since there are SO MANY ways to achieve this look! If it were up to us (and this heat wave would go away) we would be wearing a cozy cardigan every single day. Finding a cardigan, or sweater, that is made with a textured knit fabric is the way to go! It gives your look a pattern, while still wearing neutrals.

Denim is also a staple piece to stock up on for fall. As the temps start to drop, you will need a few core styles of denim jeans to rotate through the year! Kancan Jeans and Flying Monkey Jeans are two of our favorite brands that we swear by.  They offer different styles and fits, while all being so comfortable and sculpt to your every move. One of our go-to looks is denim on denim.  This put together look can be achieved by wearing your favorite denim jeans (or jean skirt) and pairing it with a jean jacket or button up chambray top.  To let your personality shine, wear a graphic tshirt underneath or add your unique accessories to add a pop of color.

Shoes

Now, you can’t talk back to school shopping without mentioning the best part: NEW SHOES! Finding neutral booties is a great investment in your fall wardrobe.  They are so great since you can easily dress them up and down, while still remaining comfortable throughout your day.  A few of our favorites are from Qupid Shoes, Soda Shoes, and City Classified Shoes! Also, you can’t forget about your new cool sneakers to complete your athleisure looks for days when you really don’t have the time or energy to be completely glam. 🙂

cc and sherpa

If you haven’t hopped aboard the sherpa train, or if you’ve been living under a rock and have no idea what a sherpa pullover is, now is DEFINITELY the time.  Sherpa is huuuuuge for fall, and now is the best time to stock up on your favorite styles! (PS. These are amazing Christmas gifts.) You never have to worry about being freezing while sitting in class, or putting on a bulky winter coat again.  They are literally so warm and cozy, you’ll never want to take it off! A great pair to sherpa are beanies! CC Beanies are our favorite beanies to wear when it gets cold.  They offer a variety of colors and styles, that you’ll be sure to find one that suits your needs.

Kimonos: The Epitome of the Layering Piece

1

Who doesn’t love a good kimono (or three)? They are an AMAZING transitional piece that can take you through all of the seasons, they are cozy, AND they are super fun and flattering. So, we will go ahead and start by saying that you definitely need to invest in a few kimonos to switch up your looks all year round.

For starters, kimonos are so versatile since they come in infinite combinations of colors, lengths, short sleeve, long sleeve, patterns, and fabrics. This is our absolute favorite part about kimonos and is what makes them so great for year-round style.  They have the ability to make you feel fashionable, feminine, and cool, while still letting your personal style shine. The kimono is a staple piece in your wardrobe that can be easily incorporated into your personal, day-to-day style.

You can wear kimonos during the summer months by choosing a lightweight, floral kimono and pairing it with a basic tank or tee, ripped jean shorts, and your favorite summer sandals.  Or, throw a patterned kimono over your swim suit when you are headed to the pool for a cool, yet fabulous, look.  For the cooler months, rock a duster kimono that is toned with autumn colors, a tank or lightweight sweater, ripped (or clean!) skinny jeans, and your go-to heeled booties! This look is so great since you can also switch up the look by substituting your kimono for a cardigan! A timeless look for every season is throwing a kimono over your favorite sun dress! If it’s chilly, wear a pair of tights or leggings underneath to stay warm. Going for a night out look? Opt in for a silk or velvet kimono with a more tailored look, dark wash denim, and your best dancing heels!

We just can’t get enough of kimonos, honestly! They are the epitome of a layering piece. Let us know what your favorite ways to wear your kimonos are! Shop these trends at www.gliks.com or check out how we like to style our looks on Glik’s Official Instagram!

DIY Pom Pom Earrings

salamanca

Who is ready for another DIY blog?! Today, we are going to be talking Pom Poms! Pom Pom accessories are one of my favorite things at the moment. Not only are they trendy, they are an easy way to make a plain outfit super loud and quirky. There are a couple different ways to do this trend and to make it your very own style.  I am going to show you two ways to make your very own pom pom earrings in less than 5 minutes each!

what you need

What you’ll need:

  • Pom poms (pre-made)
  • Yarn (to make your own poms)
  • Fork (to make your own poms)
  • Hoop Earrings
  • Post Earrings
  • 2” length of small chain
  • Needle
  • Embroidery Floss

Alrighty, now that we have everything we need it is time to get crafty. So since this DIY is so gosh darn simple we are going to be making two different kinds of pom pom earrings. One that is for beginner DIYers and then a slightly more difficult option.

Easy-peasy option: I bought some pre-made ones from a local Dollar Tree that came in a variety of colors so this is a good option if you don’t really want to make your own.

blog

Slightly more effort option:  It is pretty easy to make your own pompoms with some yarn if you’re up for the challenge. I found a pretty simple way to make medium sized pom poms with just a fork. You just wrap the yarn around the fork about 20 times;  next, tie a piece in the center as tight as you can. Finally, cut the two sides and you are done. SIMPLE AS THAT FOLKS!

Multi-hoop-1

Green-hoop1

After you figured out your pom pom situation, take your pom pom, your hoop earring, and add a variety of pom poms. It’s up to you if you want to cover the whole thing in pom poms or just add a couple. Just find the center of your pom and thread it through with the back of the earring. That is all it takes for the hoop-pom pom earring style!  What I find fun about this DIY option is that you can make multiple colored poms and switch them out to match your outfits! Above you can see the easy and more difficult pom-pom options. For the pre-made pom poms, I just put a bunch on my earring hoop. For the homemade pom I went with just one simple pom on the hoop. Both are super cute way to add some color to your regular plain hoop earrings!

White-chain1White-chain

For another slightly more difficult option, grab a small 2 inch chain to put on the back of your earring post for a dangly-drop style earring. Thread your embroidery floss to your needle, find the center of your homemade pom and tie it up to the bottom chain. Then take the top of the chain, put it through whatever style of post earrings you want to wear that day and your ready to go! It really is that easy to make your own DIY Pom Pom earrings.

Get Your Stripes On

header

Horizontal or vertical, thick or thin, we do not discriminate stripes at any time throughout the year. So, if you’re like any of us, you consider stripes to be a pretty core part of your year-round wardrobe.  This being said, go ahead and get your stripes on!

Stripes are super flattering, trendy, and mostly considered a basic! We are seeing stripes in so many sizes and colorways in 2018, and we are all about it. We are here to tell you that if you wear your stripes strategically, you won’t be disappointed.  Vertical stripes, such as pinstripes, create a slimming and lengthening affect.  Vertically striped pants and dresses lengthen your legs and torso and make your façade more visually appealing. If you are trying to make your shoulders or hips look bigger and fuller, opt for horizontal stripes!  These patterns will help you create a more proportionate look as well. From tops, pants, dresses, and even shoes, stripes are making their appearance known in today’s fashion world. So, why not add to your collection obsession?

The best thing about stripes is that you can find something that fits for any occasion.  They are a great print for all ages, too! For a casual vibe, pair a striped tank or cropped top with your favorite pair of boyfriend jeans or mini skirt.  Or, if you’ve got a date night or party planned, whip out a chic striped jumpsuit or dress and everyone won’t be able to stop talking about your look!

Keeping all of this in mind, you really can’t go wrong with striped clothing! Now, go ahead and get your stripes (and shopping) on! Shop now at www.gliks.com 🙂

Summer Dresses~ The Maxi Dress

Summer Dresses

Easily one of the best parts of the summer season are dresses, and while there are so many styles of dresses today, we are going to be talking about the maxi dress. Nothing beats throwing on a dress in the morning and walking out the door looking #flawless. Whether you are wearing a maxi dress for a special occasion or for days of running around town, here are 4 maxi dresses that we are currently crushing on here at Glik’s.

3

The first maxi dress is by Everly. Everly is a brand that you know will always have quality clothing with a girly, feminine style. This dress is a super versatile wrap dress in a beautiful colorway. Our shoe recommendation would be a simple peep toe mule shoe or try an espadrille platform shoe to give you some height! Honestly, any shoe or accessory would pair well with this dress because of its beautiful neutral color, but you should definitely try and accessorize with your favorite sun hat!

2

If you want a more casual dress for everyday wear, you have to check out the Elan Clothing Halter Striped Maxi Dress in Navy. It’s a jersey knit dress with on seam hand pockets, and a rounded hem. Try knotting the bottom and putting on some strappy heels with your favorite accessories for a more dressed up look for nights out. We are loving them with some platform espadrille wedges to give you a little height with your look. For a comfier style try pairing it with some super comfy Sanuk sandals for pool days.

4

We of course have to talk about the two piece maxi dress option. Illa Illa has so many adorable two piece sets that are just perfect for summer. The floral patterns are the perfect summer pattern. This particular set comes in two different colorways and has a shorts lining, which is amazing for days where you want to be on the move and wear a dress. Bonus! ~ you can always pair the top with your favorite distressed shorts and some Borks. Or you can try wearing the skirt with a solid Piko top and some strappy sandals by Soda. There’s really so many outfit options with a two piece set!

1

The Storia Palm Print maxi dress is another one of our faves. Palm print, ruffles, and off the shoulder are very on trend details of the season, and this dress gives you all of those things in the most stylish way! This dress will look amazing with the City Classified Hudson shoes or any other neutral colored low heel. This type of shoe will perfectly match everything in your closet and you definitely need to add our straw bag to give your look more of those beachy vibes.

The dynamic duo for summer. There are so many styles of crop tops and denim skirts that there are endless possibilities and combinations.  Wear a knit crop top and sandals for a casual day look and change into a cropped blouse and heels for a night out! If you decide not to wear them together for a full look, crop tops and denim skirts definitely need to be in your summer wardrobe regardless.

2. Wrap Tops & Dresses

You can find us in this look allllll summer long! Just look how fun and flirty these are! The wrap style silhouette is adjustable and super flattering, and it adds a bit of feminine flare to your look without going overboard. Ruffles are also super cute touch to these styles. From tops, rompers, and mini or maxi dresses, you will continue to see the wrap style everywhere.

3. High Waist Shorts

We never want the high rise trend to end. From denim shorts to linen shorts, solids to prints, we want them all! Since the shorts sit high above your hips, they are comfy, flattering, and elongate your legs. Winner! Dress these shorts up with a printed blouse, or dress them casual with a basic tank or tee.

4. Espadrilles & Flatforms

espadrilles

Let your toes be free! Espadrilles and flatforms are out in full force this summer and we couldn’t be more into it. Flatforms are super comfortable, but are also versatile and add height to your look! Trust us when we say you can’t have too many pairs of neutral slides and platforms to rotate within your summer wardrobe.

1. Basic Tees & Flat Front Shorts

Guys, now is the time to stock up on basic and graphic tees.  Basic tshirts are such a great investment since you can literally wear them year round! Plus, you can’t go wrong with a basic striped tee and flat front shorts look.

2. Novelty Shirts & Volley SHorts

If you are anything but basic, you guys need to grab yourself a novelty print shirt (or two) for summer. Wild and bold prints are so fun for summer while the tailored button up shirt design dresses up the look a bit.  Pair them with some comfy volley shorts and your favorite flip flops and your summer uniform is complete.

3. Trucker Hats

Trucker hats are also on trend for summer! (And year-round in our eyes) With so many brands and styles to choose from, Glik’s has got your man covered. Get rid of that dirty old baseball cap this summer and buy a nice, clean trucker hat to complete your casual looks.

Denim skirts have been trending up this year, just like denim fashion in general.  And since the warmer temps are now in full effect, it’s time to swap out some of your looks from denim jeans to a denim skirt! So, we decided to help you out a bit by showing you three different looks with one key piece: the Vervet Jeans High Waist Ripped Denim Skirt.  Vervet Denim is new to Glik’s and we are loving everything we have seen from them so far. This skirt is such a good investment to rotate within your warm weather wardrobe!  Keep reading to see how we styled this skirt three different ways.

1. F e s t i v a l  F e e l s

vervet look 1

This first outfit is great for summer day outings! Since the denim skirt sits high on your hips, it pairs perfectly with crop tops! We decided to pair the skirt with a Free People Sleepy Eyes Brami.  This bralette-camisole top is absolutely amazing! It is super versatile since it can be worn alone as a top or layered under your favorite fashion tops and kimonos as a bralette.  Keeping the boho vibes alive, we decided to finish this look with a pair of platform slides! These are the City Classified Shoes Strauss Platform Slides in Black. If you don’t have a pair of espadrille platform shoes already, what are you waiting for!?

2. L a i d  B a c k  S t y l e

This next look can be worn nearly anywhere for a cute and casual look.  A girl can never have too many graphic tees (am I right?), so we paired this Vervet distressed skirt with this sweet tee from Amuse Society!  Laid back style is what this year’s fashion is all about, so we are teeing it up in full force!  We paired this look with a pair of simple slide sandals from Qupid Shoes! The Qupid Comfy Banded Slides are available in multiple colors, so you can add to your obsession. If you are feeling super daring and working this look, throw on a denim jacket over the graphic t-shirt or tie it around your waist.  Denim on denim forever.

3. W e e k e n d  V i b e s

vervet look 3

The last outfit we put together for you all is a great option for a night out! Pairing the Vervet Jeans High Waist Ripped Denim Skirt with a printed blouse will take your look to the next level.  The Love Stitch Clothing Diamond Tie Front Top in Denim and Vanilla is perfect for summer! The lightweight and flowy fit is great for warm summer nights, while the pattern and tie front is super flattering on most body types.  This pattern not your look? Check out the other tie front tops we have to offer!  Slip on a pair of neutral strappy heels, like these Brammer Perforated Heels from Qupid Shoes, and your third look is complete.

How You Need to Be Wearing White Denim This Season

How to wear White Denim

White denim has always been a thing, but if you have ever been wary of the white denim trend, it’s time to face your fears! LUCKILY, there are so many styles or ways you can wear white denim, so you don’t have to just do the classic white skinny jean (but classics, are classics for a reason). You can mix up the white denim trend and try a denim skirt, or a pair of shortalls, or a trendy skort.

White denim can either be a statement piece for your outfit or it can be a way to showcase your favorite piece of clothing. This must have item makes any outfit look clean and fresh, which is perfect for summer, but you better believe that these can also roll you into fall (but that’s a blog post for another day.) Here are 4 ways you need to try wearing your white denim this season.

Monochromatic White Denim trend

Monochromatic: White denim with a white top, is definitely the most daring of all the white denim trends. But to make it easier, just remember that you probably also loved the all black wardrobe trend and this is basically the same thing but the more summer friendly version of the two (aka less likely to absorb all those warm little sun rays). This look is so clean and simple, without a doubt it will make you look sophisticated and put together.

White Denim with a Pop of Color

A Pop of Color: Basically, the same concept as the monochromatic look, but throw some of your favorite pieces on there to make them really stand out. Your outfit becomes the canvas and you get to showcase whatever trendy item you wanna show off! I recommend, a jean jacket or any other of your favorite dressier outerwear pieces. If it’s too hot for a jacket, throw on some statement earrings, a daring shoe choice, or a colorful bag. You can even opt for a more muted pop of color with a simple beige or a light blue.

Statement tops with white jeans

A Statement Top: A lot of jeans can take away from a beautiful statement top, but with a pair of white jeans you are making sure that the shirt that “you just need to have or you would die” is the center of attention!  A pair of white jeans also makes that shirt that otherwise might have been borderline casual, an office ready look! Then you can throw on a neutral shoe to accent the top more, or grab a statement shoe choice to compliment your blouse.

Casual outfit with white jean

Casual: A tee shirt and a pair of jeans, is always a good idea. AGAIN, (sorry I sound like a broken record over here) white denim elevates your jean and tee style! Classic denim shorts, for example, tend to be casual style piece, but white denim shorts look mature and classy with whatever you wear them with! So whether you throw on a basic graphic tee or a solid colored tank, you cannot go wrong with a basic tee and some white denim.

White denim is definitely a great option if you want to raise the denim bar. All it takes is one simple piece of denim to help you create very different styles. For more creative ideas on how to wear white denim be sure to check out the Glik’s Official Instagram, where we post outfit ideas and new arrivals! And to shop the best white jean pieces be sure to head over to Gliks.com. Tell us in the comments how you like to style your white denim!
