DIY Embroidered Tee

DIY Embroidered T-Shirt

It has been a minute since we have done a D.I.Y. blog here at Glik’s, so for today’s post we are going to show you how easy it is to embroider a tshirt! Embroidered denim, shirts, shoes, etc. are such a trend right now, and you can totally make this trend your own personal style! You will be amazed with how easy it is to create a fashionable and unique piece with just about an hour of your time! So let’s get started on your own DIY embroidered tee!

How to Embroider a TSHIRT

What You’ll Need:

  • Plain t-shirt
  • Colorful thread
  • Needle
  • Scissors
  • Chalk/Pencil
  • An embroidery hoop (optional)
  • A design 

DIY Embroidered Shirt

To start off get whatever shirt in whatever color you like best! The thread and needle you can buy at any supermarket or craft store. Try to find embroidery thread, normal sewing thread will be too thin to really show up well on the shirt. I recommend breaking the thread up to two to three strands.

Embroidered DIY Shirt

Next, sketch out your design, pattern, icon etc. that you want to put on the shirt with some chalk. This will easily come out of the shirt when your are finished stitching.

DIY Embroidered Shirt

After you sketch out your design, get to stitching! An embroidery hoop is optional, but it will make this whole process easier, especially if you are new to sewing. Go over the lines as many times as you want to create the desired thickness for your design. The shirt we made here isn’t totally perfect, so to dazzle it up we added some colorful lines!

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!

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.

header

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

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!

Athleisure, activewear, what-have-you.  All we know is that the trend is in AND it is comfortable.  It’s a win-win situation that will have you adding to your collection on the reg.  However, if you are unsure of how to pull off this style, we are here to show you where to start!  Keep reading to check out some of our activewear styles from Mono B Clothing.

The greatest thing about active wear clothing is that you can go from brunch, to class, to running errands, and to the gym all in one outfit! Or if you’re like us, trick people into thinking you are headed to the gym when in fact you are headed home from class to watch 8 hours of Netflix…  You are totally capable of looking put together in leggings and a pullover without looking like a bum.

flatlays

First things first: leggings. You can NEVER have too many pairs.  Anyone who tells you otherwise, well, they’re just plain wrong. We have recently gotten in so many cute and trendy pairs of leggings and you definitely need one of each pair! These leggings are made with a comfortable stretch fabric that is perfect for lounging or cardio. With different designs, lengths, and colors, you will easily be able to mix and match with your wardrobe day to day.

leggings

If you want to be SUPER trendy and put-together, buy an active-wear set! These sports bra crop tops are perfect for the warmer months coming up.  They come in cute matching prints as some of the leggings we carry and feature a comfortable, padded construction. Not comfortable with wearing only the crop top and leggings? Throw on a basic tee or tank over the sports bra and you’re all set.  For chilly or windy days, invest in a neutral windbreaker or athleisure pullover.  With muted tones and a simple design, your look will go from bleak to chic in no time.

Last, but certainly not least, you will need to invest in a neutral, comfy, and dependable pair of tennis shoes to complete your look! These shoes will be able to take you through the day in style from your morning coffee runs to your gym workouts at night.  Also, try Boho Bandeaus or Teleties to pull your hair back in a messy bun when you decided to hit snooze for the fifth time before class that day.

Shoes That Won’t Hurt Your Feet or Your Budget

Adorable and Afforable (1)

Finding adorable and affordable shoes for your closet can be a pain. Especially in the summer time because we all know flip flops are not exactly known for their supportive soles. Here at Glik’s we actually have a large selection of shoes that will support your feet and your wallet. cc

City Classified Shoes | $29

 City Classified Shoes Comfort Andro Wedge Heels in Tan were made for your busy lifestyle.  They look like your classic micro wedge heel, but really they are jam packed with comfort. With a lined and padded footbed and a soft foam padding you’ll be able to wear these shoes all day!

 

5

Sperry Top Sider | $60

I love Espadrilles. Love them. But typically they have little to no sole or cushioning. This is where Sperry saves the day. Almost all their shoes have a memory foam footbed, ya know the stuff that people make mattresses out of? Yeah, these shoes are so comfy you could basically sleep on them.

4

Mia Shoes | $30

The Mia Shoes Lynn Strappy Sandals in Black and in Cognac are such a treat for a pair of strappy sandals. These gladiator style shoes have a super padded rubber outsole and footbed. Cute and actually a wearable sandal?! Get one in both colors, because these are going to be your summer staple.

Adorable and Afforable

Sanuk Yoga Sandals | $38

Okay, these shoes are kind of a no brainer with a name with the word yoga in it. You can also get these fun knitted sling style uppers in so many styles or colors. The footbed is made out of yoga mats, so you can definitely skip the yoga class, and get your Namaste on with the Sanuk Yoga Sandals.

3

Qupid Shoes | $20

Qupid shoes are great for their comfortability factor, since they all have a lightly cushioned footbed and a low price point. But my favorite Qupid Shoes lately are the Comfy Banded Slides that come in Carmel, Black, and White. These Comfy shoes are an ideal summer footwear option, they give you that simple sandal silhouette with a comfortable footbed.

With this selection of shoes at Glik’s you can have comfortable, trendy shoe styles without breaking your budget. For more styling tips and ideas be sure to check out Gliks’ Instagram! Happy shopping ya’ll!

Styling Tips on How to Look Taller

header

We are getting straight to the point today.  For all you short girls out there, this blog post is dedicated to you! Being short can sometimes be a hassle when shopping.  You may feel like you can’t rock today’s trends since the clothes don’t fit you right.  Well, although we can’t magically spare your legs a few extra inches, we CAN give you some styling tips on how to make you appear to be taller!

1. V-Neck and Surplice Tops

One of the simplest ways to achieve a taller look is to wear a shirt that features a v-neckline or surplice style bodice.  There are so many options to choose from for any occasion! From basic tees, blouses, tanks, and sweaters, you can incorporate this tip almost every day.  Deep v-neck cut tops and dresses draw attention to your face and elongate the look of your torso!

tops

2. High-Waist and Ankle Length Pants

High waist pants are super on-trend right now, so you can find them almost anywhere in multiple styles.   Since the high-rise waistband sits above your hips, it tricks the common eye into thinking your legs are longer and leaner. You can use this tip with pants, skirts, or shorts! We also suggest you pair it with a cropped or tailored top to enhance the look even more and bring out the elevated waistline.  If you are going with the pants look and not shorts, invest in a pair of pants that actually fit you right! Wearing cropped or ankle length pants, and baring some ankle, will also give the illusion of longer legs.

pants

3. Pointed Toe Shoes

Whether you are brave enough to rock pumps all day or would rather stick to flats, wearing shoes with a low-cut vamp or pointed toe is the way to go.  These styles will instantly elongate your legs.  Bonus tip: wearing nude colored pumps will provide even more “length” to your look! If heels aren’t your thing, try investing in a pair of pointed toe flats or mules! They are comfy, stylish, and will lengthen your leg line. Winner!

4. Vertical Stripes

This next tip is one of our all-time favorites, vertical stripes! Vertical stripes are practically considered a basic and they work great for all types of clothing! This pattern creates long lines along the body and is a classic look that makes your entire body look longer, no matter the color scheme. Try incorporating this pattern into your year-round wardrobe with tops, pants, dresses, or even swim suits!

stripes

5. Monochrome Outfit

Similar to the demise of the vertical stripe, monochrome outfits (wearing all the same color) give off the deception of a longer body type.  Using the same color to enhance the illusion of height creates long lines just as vertical stripes do.  Although wearing all black is the simplest of options, try breaking out other natural or fun hues! Check out a simple jumper or a two piece set! The trick to this tip is to make sure your outfit stays simple and tailored.

solids

6. Top-knot bun or High Ponytail

When it comes to getting ready and styling your hair in the morning, don’t fret! Although shorter length hairstyles will make you look taller by showing off your shoulders and neckline, don’t freak out if you are not willing to chop your hair off! If you decide to keep your hair long, keep it voluminous! Long, textured, beachy waves add length and heighten your appearance.  Or, throw your hair up into a high pony tail or top knot bun with Teleties! These hairstyles literally add a few more inches to your look.
