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!

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!

This third look can be styled in different ways to bring out your own style! Piko dresses are so comfortable, that you will NEED one in every color and style! They are super flattering on all body types and can be worn year round! They’re also a great layering piece.  Throw on a flannel or cardigan sweater over the top, or wear some tights underneath if you get chilly! To bring out your bold side, grab a pair of these metallic booties! They are neutral enough to wear on repeat, yet the subtle metallic shine steps your look up a notch. Since the dress itself is so simple, this leaves an open palette for you to style and accessorize! We went the simple route with a long, dainty necklace and our favorite lace bralette.

Hi everyone! We wanted to introduce you to our newest buyer and member of our team, Sam Ryner. Sam recently graduated from Central Michigan University with a degree in Fashion Merchandising and a Marketing Minor! Sam previously worked in our Holland Boutique store in Michigan and was thrilled to hear that our Home Office was looking for a new buyer.  She decided to pack up from her home state and move down to the Midwest for this amazing opportunity to become a buyer.

Here is a picture of Sam outside of the Holland Boutique store!

Sam is super excited to be a part of the Home Office team and still can’t believe she is living out her dream job as a fashion merchandising buyer.  She is currently our assistant buyer of women’s bottoms, women’s outerwear and women’s athletic clothes!  Sam is having so much fun learning new things each day on the job, as well as exploring her new home town of St. Louis, Missouri!

While working in one of our brick and mortar stores, Sam loved how every day was different.  Each day, there were different customers, different situations, and new clothing that arrived, so she was always on her toes. She is looking forward to working in the same fast-paced environment at home office, but now is getting to see how the process works from the other side!

From picking out and buying the clothes, to sending them to the stores and being purchased by customers.  Sam said, “I am learning new things every single day and my goal is to focus on and master the categories I buy.” She also is excited about getting to meet all of her amazing coworkers, exploring a new city, and attending trade shows.

magic

Speaking of trade shows, a few weeks ago Sam was able to attend the largest trade show of the year in Vegas, MAGIC.  According to Sam, “MAGIC was so much more than I expected, it was huge!”  Since she was a fashion merch major, Sam had been hearing and learning about MAGIC since her Freshmen year of college. “It was so cool to have that image in my mind for the past few years, and actually becoming reality!” Her favorite part of her first show was being around SO many people with common fashion interests and being able to see and choose product that no one else has seen before.
