Valentine’s Day Outfit Ideas

What to Wear for Valentine’s Day: Outfit Ideas

Valentine’s day, you either love it or hate it (for whatever reason). This day is meant to be spent full of love and laughter with family and friends. Chocolate covered strawberries, funny yet meaningful Valentine’s cards, conversation hearts, roses, and everything splattered with red and pink hues are the general thoughts that come to mind when you think of Valentine’s Day! But, have you given much thought as to what new clothes you are going to buy for this day?! Whether you have a big romantic date planned or some non-negotiable plans with Netflix, takeout, and your couch, do not forget to find the perfect outfit! The best part – these looks are perfect for Spring-time so you don’t have to worry about investing in an outfit that you’ll only wear once a year in February.

Pretty Polka Dots

2

Jumpsuits are up trending in 2019 because they are SO versatile. We just got in this sweet polka dot midi jumpsuit from Everly Clothing and it just gives us good feelings.  The black and white coloring allows you to wear this from the office to date night. Since the weather is still on the cold side, we threw on a chunky chenille sweater from Miracle over the top! Layering jumpsuits is a great way to transition your wardrobe from winter to spring.  To dress this look up, we paired it with a basic black heel – but sneakers or sandals would look just as cute!

Sweet Styles

1

This look is the epitome of Spring fashion! We love everything about this outfit since you can wear all of the pieces individually and mix & match the clothes you already have stocked in your closet.  It is finally time to break out the white denim, so go ahead and invest in a quality pair from KanCan Jeans.  A simple lightweight sweater with darling shoulder details, like this number from Elan Clothing, kicks this look up a notch! If you get cold, simply throw on a classic jean jacket and you’re all set. Add some sparkle to this #ootd by accessorizing with a long necklace, statement earrings, or even a wide-brimmed hat!

Romantic Ruffles

3

If you’re ready to wear dresses all the time (in an attempt to avoid actually wearing pants) say I? IIIIIIIIII 😉 This romantic wrap dress has a great silhouette with an adjustable tie waist and appropriate v-neckline.  The soft colors included in the striped design give just enough pop while not becoming overbearing.  These photos do not do this Lush Clothing dress justice! If you are worried about being too chilly, throw on a cardigan or denim jacket over the top or opt for over the knee boots instead of heels or wedges!

Classic Combo

4

This last look can definitely be modified to suit your individual style, but we can’t get enough of a good basic look.  This simple outfit still screams elegance and style due to the shoulder detail and choker neckline look, without the bold “Valentine’s Day” colors. Miracle Clothing has amazing sweaters for year-round style and we can’t get enough. We paired the trendy sweater with a pair of distressed denim jeans from KanCan and the same neutral block heels from earlier.  Style tip: front tuck your sweater to accentuate and slim your waistline while showing off your trendy belt buckle!

Spring Fashion:

Stay tuned for more new arrivals coming soon!


Even though the official start of Spring isn’t for a couple months, we are already in full Spring fashion mode! We said our goodbyes to our beloved sherpa pullovers and winter boots, and Marie Kondo’ed (we made it a verb) our closets to make room for new fashion finds.  Lightweight fabrics, stripes and floral prints, and pastel colors have made their way into our spotlight.  We also can’t forget to mention the variety of casual sneakers, sandals, and wedges that have started to make their debut online and in-stores!

Midi dresses, maxi dresses, jumpsuits, and rompers have seemed to be the focus lately and we are not mad about it. They are perfect for transitioning from the frigid cold to the bipolar spring days.  These lightweight pieces are super versatile and can be easily layered to suit your needs! The best part is they also pair well with either heels or sandals AND look great on both tall and short girls alike.

Checkout our latest collection of Spring fashion at gliks.com or in your local store! New arrivals are live almost daily, so stay up to date with our new product by following Glik’s Official Instagram 🙂

MERRY CHRISTMAS! Well close enough, technically the whole month of December is considered Christmas in our books. Even though December is still a few days away, we are in full on holiday mode now after Black Friday! So, since we are in the season of gift giving, it’s time to start considering what giftables you are going to give to your family, friends, and even to yourself!

Giftables for Her:

womens-giftables

Having a gift exchange among girls usually turns into a fun-filled occasion. That being said, it also may be challenging at times to find that PERFECT gift. Us ladies really do love the simplest and coziest of gifts to get us through the rigid temps and stress of this time of year.  Here are a few gift ideas (big and small) to give to her: a Thread & Supply Drayton Pullover, Look by M Shearling Slipper Socks, a fleece lined CC Beanie, a Thread & Supply Park City Reversible Vest, a Look by M Brushed Fringe Scarf, some Teleties hair accessories, a Friday Saturday Christmas Graphic Tee, and of course Yeti Wine Tumblers.

Giftables for Him:

mens-giftables

When it comes to guys and gift giving, they generally are very vague on what they want as a gift for any occasion.  (Sorry to the select few men that actually give helpful hints!) If you’re searching for a gift that is actually practical and he won’t just throw in a pile on the bottom of his closet, we’ve got some ideas for you!  Here are a few gift ideas for him: a True Grit Sherpa Pullover, a pair of Stance Socks, a neutral yet stylish hooded pullover, a Patagonia Beanie, a sophisticated Duffle Bag, a Christmas themed graphic t-shirt, and of course a Yeti Tumbler.

We hope you take the time this season to spend quality time with those near and dear to your heart. We want to make things easier and sweeter for you, so check out all of the great clothing and gift ideas we have to offer online or in your local store!

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.

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!
