Tropical Print for Him

We’re loving one of Spring 2013’s hottest trends: Tropical!  This easy, breezy tropical print will definitely have you in the mood to head to the beach.

This trend definitely has tropical roots. Be on the look out for patterns featuring leaves, animal prints, ikat, tie-dye, feathers, and bold birds. Key tropical colors will be reds, olive, gold, khaki, aqua blues, and bright shades of green. Important fabrics and materials for this trend are leather, chambray, linen, and light cottons.

This trend might be bold, but styling tropical print is pretty easy. Pair your printed top or bottom with simple solid color pieces that have a casual feel. Add some neon pop if you’re feeling bold like a watch, sunglasses, hat, or wristband.

 

Guys, this trend looks good on you so be bold and try a bit of tropical print to your wardrobe.

{Shoes} Pretty in Print

I have a feeling that this summer nearly every girl with a spare dollar will spend it on a pair of fabulous shoes! Nothing can be done about this. The unstoppable obsession over bold vibrant colors and loud eye-catching prints this season is causing girls everywhere to go ‘gaga’ over trendy statement shoes.

Printed Shoes.

I think we can all agree that a bold print can perk up any pair of shoes. Whether it is a platform pump, wedge, ballet flat, sandal or even a cute pair of sneaks, you can utilize a print to liven up your look or possibly to build an outfit around.

Animal Instinct

Animal prints, such as leopard, tiger, cheetah and python, will be a huge trend this summer. Let your inner shoe animal out of its cage and give a wild flare to any plain tee & jeggings outfit.

You will also see floral prints like ditsy & cabbage rose blossoming on shoes along with super feminine touches of crochet and lace. Dainty details and girlish prints add a sweet demure to any cardigan and summer dress or skirt outfit.

Style File: Boots Are In!!!

It’s still August which means, contrary to the current temps, it is almost time to dig out our sweaters, jackets, and BOOTS.

Fall weather tells you to pack up your sandals and flip flops, and forces you pull out your socks and start covering your toes! One of my personal favorite parts of fall fashion are BOOTS and this season’s styles are better than ever! Below you’ll find great new boots available in stores and online at www.gliks.com!

To get you in the mood for some BOOT shopping here are some of the new styles at Glik’s, ONE for everyday of the week! Perfect!

1. Case of the Mondays? Not when you’re wearing the “Asiana” Riding Boot! Miss the bus on purpose & hop on a Motorcycle in these!

2. Daydreaming of Friday Already? We are too in the totally versatile “Gerry” Riding Boot. Wear the cuff folded down at work and flip it up & loose the cardi for last minute happy hour or dinner plans!

3. Need a little Pick Me Up? The 3″ wedge heel on the “Della” Boot will give it to you! Forget to finish your laundry? No worries these boots are easy to pair with just about anything you have in your closet (or on your floor) Shhh..we won’t tell! Happy Hump Day!

4. It’s Thursday, and you can just about taste the weekend… Need something to remind you of the fun you’ll soon be having relaxing, shopping, and dancing? May I present to you the “Camilla” Bootie. If you don’t have a pair of booties yet you are missing out! These have a sherpa-lined cuff that can be worn up or down, and also have an amazingly comfortable chunky heel.

5. Who said Fridays had to be casual? Slip into the “Agatha” Boot and you’ll be FAR FAR away from Casual Friday, and much closer to the weekend! Anything animal print is super hot right now, so why not let your inner party animal out with these zebra-print cuffed boots!? Want to keep it simple.. fold the cuff up and the zebra-print pattern is replaced with silver studs!

Trend Alert: Leopard Print!

The new HOT trend this year is leopard print.  It lets you stand out from the crowd and show off your wild side.  Celebs sporting this trend and showing their spots everywhere.

There are many different ways to wear leopard prints.  The one thing to remember that when it comes to animal prints, or any bold prints for that matter, less is more.  For example, leopard print makes the perfect accessory in a pair of pumps, a handbag, or a scarf, but you can have too much of a good thing.  Stick with only one leopard print accessory.

Leopard print can also be hot in a dress, pants, or a top, just make sure to pair it with simple yet fab accessories, such as black combat boots or pumps, or a simple top.

Check out how these celebs style their leopard print.

Miley Cyrus, Christina Aguilera, Vanessa Hudgens and Rihanna show their spots.

 

Dying to get your hands on this fab trend?  Pick up these Dollhouse Zatty Gathered Suede Leopard Booties from Glik’s!

What’s Your Style? – Rocker Chick

Whether you are the lead guitarist on stage or dancing your heart out in the crowd, you want to look your best.  Today’s “Style” post is all about those girls with a rock ‘n roll heart.  Dressing like a rocker is all about black and white with pops of color and flash.  Skinny jeans are a must, the more destructed the better.  Add some glam and flair with studs and jewels and you’re ready to rock out.  Rock stars like to be noticed, you will too in these rockin’ outfits.

Outfit 1:

Scream out your favorite song and look hot in this outfit.  This tank looks simple from the front, but has an open fringe detail on the back to add just enough detail.  Simple jeggings look great with any rocker outfit.  Add some flair with a jeweled leopard-print bracelet and studded heels.  Too cold for a tank?  Add a black blazer.  Want some added flair?  Your favorite long necklace should look great.  Want more color?  A pair of red pumps would pop perfectly, or layer the top over a neon tank.

Glik’s online LA Boutique has tons of hot trends for summer! From maxi dresses to animal prints, we have it all!

This black maxi dress has a cream crochet back and straps. It’s a good maxi dress for summer because its cream and black, making it able to go with any color sandals and accessories. Wearing this color with a primary color like red or blue would make it the outfit pop!

A huge trend that’s been everywhere for the past few seasons is animal print! Leopard has been the most popular of all the animal prints and has been on everything from shoes, clothing, and like this cuff above, jewelry. This cuff is covered in diamond like jewels and is the perfect trendy accessory for summer. This bracelet can take a simple black, white, or red dress to the next level.

Speaking of Leopard print… these shoes are totally wild. With a cork wedge and a braided satin toe these wedges are quite a statement.

This zebra print scarf is also part of the animal print trend. Who says you can’t wear scarves in the winter? A thin summer scarf can set make a simple summer outfit (shorts/tank or denim mini/cami) fabulous.

Floral was huge for spring and is staying strong for summer. This floral chiffon top by Mine Code can be easily dressed up or dressed down. For a day time look you can wear it as shown above, with capris and sandals. To make it more night time, you could wear it over a tight black cotton pencil skirt and pumps.

Spring ’11: Whats Hot in Accessories!

As I have mentioned before in previous posts, accessories can make or break an outfit. With this coming year there are many new and exciting ways to add on to your outfit.

My favorite trend for Spring 2011 is straw fedoras. Sometimes an outfit is missing something, and during spring/summer it’s hard to add on because you can’t really layer with the heat. Luckily, straw fedoras and even cow boy hats can keep you in the shade and more fashion forward.

I have a bit of a purse problem. If I see a cute purse, I go for it…. Always. It looks like this spring my issue is going to grow worse because there are so many chic styles coming to Glik’s. Purses with studs, zippers, and most of them are a larger hobo style (my favorite, I have so much stuff I need to put in there!).

Whether your belt is serving a purpose (accentuating your waist, keeping your pants up) or is just for show, Glik’s has belts for spring 2011 that will completely make your outfit. Animal prints, grommets, military style and studs… what more could a girl ask for?? Whether you’re buying a thick belt, or a thin one to wrap around a few times, these trendy belts will totally set your outfit off.

As for jewelry, most trends from 2010 are carrying over to 2011, and I couldn’t be more psyched! Chains, animal print, heavy beading… we have it all. My favorite piece from the jewelry we are getting in is finger armor. This ring covers your whole finger and has a hinge in the middle for mobility. Totally chic!!

Looks like it’s going to be a fabulous season!!!!!!
