One of the biggest fashion trends for this year are paper bag waist bottoms! These statement shorts and pants are about to appear ALL OVER social media as soon as the weather starts to warm up if you haven’t started to see them already. We are loving this trend because this style is super flattering for numerous body types. Fashion is finally starting to break away from the skinny leg and we are all in! If you’re in the market for some new, fancy pants, but just don’t know how to style them with your every day essentials, keep on reading! Here are a few ways that we love to style them up for the season:

Since the weather is still a little chilly, don’t forget your cute denim jacket on your nights out in this adorable get-up!

 

Paper bag waist pants styleFor this combo, all you need are your favorite double strap sandals, a printed tank top and a lace bralette. This look is easy to take to work, to class, or to your favorite coffee shop on the weekend. Style tip: Make sure to pick a tank top that you can tuck in so that you can show off your detailed waist!

 

Paper bag shorts outfitRosy and cute, this look is a winner all around! A quick match for every pair of paper bag pants (or shorts in this case) is a basic tee! For this warm colored look, we also wanted to grab some rose gold sandals to help highlight the pink color pallet of these paper bag shorts.

 

Paper bag pants ootdWe know the weather has been on the colder side, so don’t put your sweaters away just yet! These midi pants with a subtle paper bag waist look ADORABLE with this destructed sweater. So, we think that this will be an easy way to transition your favorite shredded sweaters from your fall closet into spring. As long as the sweater isn’t too chunky, this will always be a great match for any cute pair of tie waist pants.

 

 Flowy pants outfitWe are IN LOVE with this look! At this point, you’re probably noticing that as long as you tuck in your top, you’ll always be able to create a killer look with your new paper bag pants. However, it’s never a bad idea to wear a cute crop top and show a little skin when the sun finally comes out! To add the finishing touch, wear a pair of sandals that match your top in order to pull the whole look together.

 

Paper bag midi pants outfitFor our final look, we wanted to share how cute a button-up denim shirt will look under your new paper bag pants. Whether you choose to tuck in the entire shirt, or you’ve been binge watching Queer Eye and want to try out a French Tuck, you’ll fall in love with this combo for spring! It’s a great look for all weather and all occasions since it can be dressed up or down with whatever shoes you choose to pair with it.

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.

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.”

I mean seriously, how can you pass these jeans up?!  They will definitely be the most comfortable denim jeans you will ever own. Shop Kancan Jeans now at www.gliks.com! And don’t forget to keep up with Glik’s Official’s Instagram to see how we love to style these denim jeans.

Back to School Styles: Fall Preview 2018

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 🙂
