Five Looks with One Key Piece: The Love Stitch Button Down

header

As the seasons change, it can be hard to find core pieces in your wardrobe that you are able to style year round.  So, we decided to help you out a bit by showing you FIVE different looks with ONE key piece! The item on topic is the Love Stitch Clothing Striped Chambray Button Down Top.  Button downs and vertical stripes are super trendy and stylish, so combined they make the perfect pair! Keep reading to see how we styled this shirt five different ways! (P.S. In our opinion, we think all of these items should be core pieces in your wardrobe!)

1. Wear Alone with Denim & Sandals

1

This first outfit is great for those casual spring days and cool summer nights.  Button up this Love Stitch striped top and roll up your sleeves for some laid back vibes.  Every girl needs a durable pair of denim jeans in her closet, so why not opt for a pair of KanCan Jeans? These are the KanCan Jeans Railroad Stripe Ankle Detail in Medium Wash.  Keeping things on the casual route, we thought these Mia Shoes strappy sandals were perfect! The neutral coloring and comfort footbed make these sandals great to wear all day, every day. Depending on your style, finish off the look with a lace bralette and some basic jewelry and you are all set.

2. Wear under Overalls with Heeled Booties.

4

This next look can also go dressy or casual, depending on your plans! Overalls are totally making a comeback and we are all for it! Pairing the Love Stitch Clothing Striped Chambray Button Down Top underneath these distressed overalls makes for a super chic outfit. We paired the look with a pair of ankle booties from My Delicious Shoes! The vertical stripes and heeled booties elevate your look and give you a taller appearance. To dress down the look, try wearing a pair of Converse sneakers or flat sandals. Since we love the criss cross trend, try unbuttoning the Love Stitch shirt a little, wear this strappy tank top, and unbuckle one of the straps from the overalls!

3. Layer Over Basic Tee with Denim & Mules.

2

This third look with your key piece item is our favorite! Keeping the striped shirt open gives the look a little edge and enhances your possibilities! Now you are able to show off all of your basic or graphic tees! We paired this look with a criss cross top from Lime N Chili and KanCan jeans. Mules are also super fashionable right now, so the Qupid Shoes Tuxedo Mules just stood out to us! If you are wearing this look while taking a walk around the park or while shopping, change it up by tying your button down shirt around your waist and you’ve got a whole new look.

4. Wear with Denim Skirt & Peep Toe Heels.

5

Now, this look will be able to take you into the night in style.  The neutral, chambray coloring and vertical stripes already dress this look up.  By pairing it with this black denim skirt from KanCan, you’ll be ready for a night out in no time!  Depending on the look you are trying to achieve, roll the sleeves up or down and tuck in the shirt to your skirt. Add some statement earrings and a lace bralette and you’ve got your fourth outfit in the bag.  To dress this look up even more, rock this pair of peep toe heels by Qupid Shoes! The tall chunky heel and elastic vamp are sure to hold up while you are dancing the night away.

5. Layer Under Cardigan with Denim & Boots.

3

This last look is perfect for cold winter or fall days when you still want to be stylish. Start off with your base, a strappy basic tank top.  Then, put on your striped button down top from Love Stitch and button it all the way up or keep it open (whichever you prefer). Lastly, slip on this cozy chunky cardigan from Wishlist. Layers layers layers is the name of the game when it comes to cold weather, so why sacrifice warmth for style? With this look, you can achieve both! End the look with a pair of neutral ankle boots, like these from Qupid Shoes, and you are ready to tackle the day with your head held high.

I mean winter clothes are cute too so don’t get me wrong about that, but GIMME ALL THE SPRING DRESSES ALREADY!! Here at Glik’s we have been getting in all our spring clothing and oh my goodness are they the epitome of all the good things that I cannot wait for with warmer weather.

A good spring dress is such a vital investment us girls make every season. The spring dress is the essential piece we wear to outdoor weddings, surprise date nights, summer music concerts, and probably on a couple warm autumn days when we refuse to wear those jeans quite yet.

Here are just a few of the spring dress that I am in love with (plus a couple footwear options to go with it!)…

This dress is perfect for the wedding receptions or days you have to go to class all day long.

I love them with the Qupid Shoes Prenton Perforated Ankle Booties in black but for a more casual look try the Soda Shoes More Ankle Booties.

This dress is super comfortable and is made of a lightweight stretch knit fabric. The Qupid Chamber Distressed Strappy Heels look perfect with this shift dress, but I also love them with the Bork Toe Loop Sandals for when you just need an outfit to run to get ice cream with friends.

Everly Striped Dress - EdwardsvilleBork-Ankle-Strap-Sandals-Taupe-1The Everly Clothing Striped Midi Dress is one of our newest arrivals. With a midi style and the flattering stripe this dress will easily be a go to for whatever event you have this season. This Striped Midi Dress will be perfect for day or night!

The Print of the Season: The Vertical Stripe

Untitled design (1)

Nautical stripes were all the rage in 2017, but in 2018 we are changing directions, literally, with vertical stripes. Be ready to want a pinstripe pattern in at least three different styles this spring! Whether the classic collared, the front tie, the off the shoulder, or the flirty jumper, we have all the styles at Gliks and we are dying to share with you what we think will be one of the classiest looks this season.

One of the best things about a striped shirt is that it is a neutral style and color, so it can go with whatever you pair it with. So go ahead and wear it with your burgundy moto leggings, your dark wash denim, your light wash denim, or your classic boyfriend jeans. For a stand out look, try mixing it with other patterns, like a pair of printed shorts or with your floral embroidered jeans or skirt.

Since this is a neutral for your wardrobe, you can wear the vertical stripe with your brown suede booties, or your black strappy sandals. Also, try wearing whatever odd colors of shoes you have stashed in the back of your closet, time to break ’em out since there is officially something to match them with! Basically, the striped shirt is a dream come true in the mornings when you want to throw some clothes on but don’t want to waste the effort of finding all the “right” things to match with it. Now everything is fair game!
Screen shot 2018-01-16 at 12.02.10 PMTo make the striped shirt even better, it’s one of the most flattering prints. The vertical stripes create a small optical illusion to make us all a little taller and a little leaner. This style will help us get those New Years Resolutions bods we swore we’d get this year.

What ever style of the vertical stripe you decide to try, it’ll be a versatile addition to your wardrobe. So go ahead, ‘add to cart’ with the guilt free knowledge that the stripe pattern will be your new favorite print of the season.

If you’re just as obsessed with Piko tops and dresses, then Glik’s newest arrivals will have you doing a happy dance! These brand new styles are equally as comfortable as your already beloved Piko tops and come in brand new cuts and colors!

Piko tops

I’ll be frank; there have been times when I’ve asked myself, staring at my closet, “How many Piko shirts do you really need?” That question becomes easier to answer with every new style of Piko dress or shirt we receive. I. Need. All. Of. Them.

The Piko tunic is basic enough that you can pile on accessories, or it can look just as chic paired with a simple choker and topknot. You can also opt to wear a bralette underneath to add a little more coverage.

piko dresses

If you’re into the oversized look, you could style one of these dresses as a top. Simply throw on your Piko with skinny jeans, tuck in the front, and viola! Look at you, stepping outside the style box.

There’s not a single style of Piko that disappoints. From the keyhole tops, to criss cross dresses, to basic Piko tops and dresses, there’s a fit that works for every body!
