1 Key Piece 3 Looks: The Vervet Jeans Denim Skirt

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.

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!?

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.

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.

We hope you have developed the same love and inspiration from these looks as we did! Check out Glik’s Official on Instagram for more style inspo and shop these looks (and more) at gliks.com!

These are some of our top picks from Glik’s and we think you need to add them all to your closet (if you haven’t already).

Dresses, and rompers, and jumpsuits.. Oh my!

So many new arrivals have been hitting in stores and online and it is SO hard to narrow them down.  However, basics, stripes, and floral prints seem to be the name of the game. Three of our new favorite dresses are the Amuse Society Clothing Bohemian Rhapsody Maxi Dress, the Love Stitch Clothing Denim Stripe Dress, and the Wild Honey Palm Print Dress! These scream summer and are super fun pieces for your next adventure!

Rompers and jumpsuits have also been our go-to this Spring. They are super comfy and versatile, so they are easy to just slip on and go! You can dress them down with sandals or sneakers ,or dress them up with a pair of your favorite heels or wedges! Some of our new favorites are the Anama Clothing Twist Front Jumper, the Elan Strappy Surplice Jumper, and the Everly Clothing Peplum Windowpane Romper! With the simple designs and solid colors, these pieces are great to add your own twist with unique accessories!

Slide into the season…

You can never have too many pairs of shoes; they are just a continuous way of life. This season, we are focusing on mules and flatflorm slides! They are classy, cute, versatile, and elevate your favorite looks! Qupid Shoes have multiple mules and slides to choose from, and we love everything they throw our way! With simple designs and neutral coloring, they offer flats and heels so you are destined to find the pair that suits you.  Some of our favorites include the Mia Shoes Saige Banded Platform Sandals, the Qupid Shoes Jaden Ruched Mules, the Report Shoes Ryder Heeled Mules, the Soda Shoes Coxy Cross Slides, and the NYLA Shoes Thing 1 Flatform Sandals.  (See, we told you shoes are hard to narrow down!)

Add On Accessories!

Accessories have also become a huge focus in trending fashion.  Pieces that are neutral and versatile seem to be what all the talk is about! Bralettes are still a completely necessary and trending piece for your year round wardrobe. We know we always talk about them, but that’s just how important we think they are! Another new item we recently received are Teleties! These hair ties are so fashionable and can be worn as bracelets when they are not being used for a pain- and kink-free ponytail.  And since you will need a stylish bag to hall of your daily necessities around in, a straw bag is just what you need for the season! We received this straw handbag from Caroline Hill and immediately got heart eyes! (Hint Hint: Your closet needs this bag too.)

Floral Items You Need This Season

How to_ Florals for Spring (3)

Okay, so we know florals for spring isn’t actually the most novel idea. It’s a concept as old as Mother Nature herself. (Cue the best movie ever, aka the Devil Wears Prada)

The Devil Wears Prada Fashion GIF-source

Adding a bold floral to your closet can seem like an overwhelming chore. To help you figure out what florals you need this year we rounded up a few pieces that are exactly what you need.

Let’s start with the most obvious; the floral print dress. This is the best item a girl can have in her closet! Perfect for warm days spent outside, family get togethers, and evening concerts. A floral dress is timeless and a dress like any of these three will last you for seasons.

Untitled designThe yellow maxi by Everly is sweet and feminine, a maxi dress is just what you need for spring and early summer. If bright florals aren’t your thing, a dress like the Amuse Society printed dress in blue has a more toned down, subtle look. For a totally different take on the flowery clothing, you can try a style with embroidered or appliqué flowers, like the Everly Embroidered Gingham dress, it gives you the floral your spring closet needs while being subtle. This gingham dress has all the 90s vibes that are trending right now too (BONUS)!

Speaking of embroidered things, floral embroidered jeans are the way to go this season! They you give you that subtle hint of floral, plus we have these in so many styles that it’s an easy way to make it fit your personal taste! For the perfect fitspo look, we are loving the Mono B activewear collection and even if you end up never going to the gym, these stylish leggings make the best loungewear. For a sweet summer flower-pattern, these En Creme Twill Leaf Shorts are lightweight and they have a charming palm leaf and floral print. How much more summery can a pair of shorts get??

For a more of an unexpected floral look, you can try a bold floral top in a unique style to give your closet something fun. The bell sleeve top by Lush or the Amuse Society Tie Front Crop Top are eye-catching styles that will give you the sweet floral with a twist.

Now for accessories, we just love floral accessories because they go great with the neutrals in your closet, or to be daring you can throw these with some patterns like stripes, or gingham prints. Adding a floral printed shoe to your summer wardrobe will be the totally unexpected and a super fashionable addition. You can try a shoe like the Blowfish Marley shoes, they are the perfect summertime style, but with that pastel and colorful design, they are next level adorable! We are loving headbands during this time of the year, they are perfect for throwing up your hair when it’s hot and still managing to look put together! These two prints by Natural Life are so sweet, perfect for adding something fun to your everyday looks!

For even more flowery goodness, you have to peep Gliks.com, we have so many other floral dresses and tops that you definitely need to check out.

Ring in the Spring with New Spring Dresses

Lately every blog has been about how excited I am about spring being sooooo close and sorry, but here is another one. 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!)…

Amuse-Wrap-Dress-1-8More-Buckle-Bootie-Lt-Tan-2The Amuse Society Faux Wrap Dress is a nice longer sleeved dress but still with the mini length look. This dress is perfect for the wedding receptions or days you have to go to class all day long. Plus this vintage inspired dress in stripe print is really trending right now and this surplice style dress gives everyone a flattering shape. 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.

Black Dress - EdwardsvilleArya-Perf-Cutout-Heels-TaupeThe Fate Sleeveless Ruffle Bodycon Dress in black has the ruffle sleeveless design I cannot get enough of! This could be your new LBD or just a fun dress to throw on before a spontaneous night out with friends. Try it with a pair of knee high boots or with the Soda Shoes Arya Perforated Cut Out Heels.

Elan-Sage-Dress-OOTD-1-17Bork-Ankle-Strap-Sandals-BLK-2The Elan Clothing High Neck Sleeveless Dress in Sage is a gorgeous shade of green that just reminds us of all the May flora that I cannot wait for. 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! Plus this dress has pockets, and who doesn’t love that! This dress is going to look great with a denim jacket or a cardigan on those chillier spring nights. For a simple look try it with the Bork Ankle Strap Toe Loop in Taupe or dress it up with your favorite booties.

If you weren’t ready for spring yet, you definitely have spring fever after seeing these warm weather dresses. These four dresses are perfect because you can easily dress them up or down depending on shoes and accessories. For even more spring fever check out Gliks.com!

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.

Screen shot 2018-01-16 at 12.00.13 PMScreen shot 2018-01-16 at 12.00.58 PM

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.
Screen shot 2018-01-18 at 1.45.42 PM Screen shot 2018-01-18 at 1.44.55 PM

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.
