Booties for Fall 2018

booties for fall 2018

I love these next couple weeks that we are about to have. The weather is perfect, the fall activities are perfect, and the outfits are perfect.

When I think fall, I think crisp cool days just enjoying being outside, walking around with a cozy cardigan and those perfect shoes that tie it all together.

If you read the Back to School Styles blog, you know that when getting yourself prepared for the fall weather, booties really are a quintessential part of one’s autumnal wardrobe. Booties are one of the first steps for transitioning into your fall and winter wardrobe. Some shoe styles that are really trending right now are low stacked heels, perforated details, peep toes, and western styles.

Back to School Styles: Fall Preview 2018

It’s almost August, which means it’s time to start thinking about back to school shopping! I know some of you may be thinking, “UGH, do we have to?!” But, back to school shopping can be super fun since it’s the time when you get to start picking out your new fall wardrobe and be oh-so stylish walking down the halls. Keep reading to check out our top picks for Fall 2018!

cardigan

The most staple of all fall outfits is this look. It is great for almost any occasion, and can be SO versatile since there are SO MANY ways to achieve this look! If it were up to us (and this heat wave would go away) we would be wearing a cozy cardigan every single day. Finding a cardigan, or sweater, that is made with a textured knit fabric is the way to go! It gives your look a pattern, while still wearing neutrals.

Denim is also a staple piece to stock up on for fall. As the temps start to drop, you will need a few core styles of denim jeans to rotate through the year! Kancan Jeans and Flying Monkey Jeans are two of our favorite brands that we swear by.  They offer different styles and fits, while all being so comfortable and sculpt to your every move. One of our go-to looks is denim on denim.  This put together look can be achieved by wearing your favorite denim jeans (or jean skirt) and pairing it with a jean jacket or button up chambray top.  To let your personality shine, wear a graphic tshirt underneath or add your unique accessories to add a pop of color.

Shoes

Now, you can’t talk back to school shopping without mentioning the best part: NEW SHOES! Finding neutral booties is a great investment in your fall wardrobe.  They are so great since you can easily dress them up and down, while still remaining comfortable throughout your day.  A few of our favorites are from Qupid Shoes, Soda Shoes, and City Classified Shoes! Also, you can’t forget about your new cool sneakers to complete your athleisure looks for days when you really don’t have the time or energy to be completely glam. 🙂

cc and sherpa

If you haven’t hopped aboard the sherpa train, or if you’ve been living under a rock and have no idea what a sherpa pullover is, now is DEFINITELY the time.  Sherpa is huuuuuge for fall, and now is the best time to stock up on your favorite styles! (PS. These are amazing Christmas gifts.) You never have to worry about being freezing while sitting in class, or putting on a bulky winter coat again.  They are literally so warm and cozy, you’ll never want to take it off! A great pair to sherpa are beanies! CC Beanies are our favorite beanies to wear when it gets cold.  They offer a variety of colors and styles, that you’ll be sure to find one that suits your needs.

Booties to Step You into Spring

We can’t wait for warmer weather! And we cannot wait to transition these super cute booties out of our winter wardrobe and into our spring looks. The best thing about these booties is that while the weather is still cold we can wear them while we wait for Springy-er days (sigh).

Qupid-Prenton-Perf-Bootie-BLK-2

The Qupid Prenton Perforated Ankle Booties

These faux leather shoes with an oil finish are an awesome option for every day wear, whether to school or work. The cut out sides are perfect for showing off your frayed hem jeans. We love these shoes because they have major casual boho vibes! They are definitely the kind of shoe you throw on with your chunky sweater but also wear with your romper to see your favorite artist in concert. You can get these laid-back booties in Taupe or Black.

Prenton-Woven-Booties-1

The Qupid Prenton Woven Ankle Booties

These shoes have a chunky stacked heel and trendy almond toe design. The Prenton Woven Ankle has a stunning intertwined design on the leatherette uppers. You can easily throw these shoes on and off with the hook and loop fastener strap design. We love these shoes because they have a super unique design, you will want to wear these with your favorite denim all the time. But no matter what you decide to wear with these shoes, they will help make your outfit unique and distinctive! You can get these trendsetting shoes in either a Light Grey or a Taupe color.

Qupid-Tuxedo-Laser-Cut-Ballerina-Bootie---Nutmeg

The Qupid Tuxedo Laser Cut Ballerina Ankle Booties

These shoes are the kind of things dreams are made of! The laser cut detailing on this shoe is some beautiful attention to detail. With a low cut style that looks wonderful with your distressed jeans. Or imagine it with a lightweight Piko dress to wear on warmer days out. We love these shoes because they are not super “heeled” like other booties for days you don’t feel like adding the extra height to your look. These booties have a dainty “ballerina shoe” feel to them, so you can feel as lightweight as these shoes when you wear them out. You can get the Qupid Tuxedo Laser Cut Ballerina Ankle Booties in a rich Nutmeg color or in an elegant Black color. Both practical and chic, these booties are a great option for the transition into the spring!

Any of these three shoes will help you take the cold steps into your spring looks. These are just some of the booties we have been crushing on lately, for even more booties check out our site at Gliks.com!

Shoe of the Week

Shoe of the Week

Time to pack away those sandals and flip flops.
Boot season is here!

At the beginning of fall, I always have the hardest time trying to find the perfect pair of shoes to wear. It’s too chilly to wear sandals but not cold enough to bring out the big tall boots! Last year, I fell in love with booties and I can not wait to buy more!

Booties are seriously the perfect shoes for the transition from summer to fall. Turn your favorite summer dress into a fall dress by adding a cardigan or denim jacket and a pair of booties. My go to outfit for this time of year is a lightweight sweater, my favorite pair of jeans and booties.

This fall we are running weekly sales on some of our booties. This week the Charles Albert Rainy Booties in Taupe and Black were the Shoe of the Week. They are regularly $29.90 but are only $19.90 this week! Shoe of the Week

The Perfect New Year’s Eve Outfit

2017

How are you celebrating New Year’s Eve this year? Whether you are going out with your best friends or staying at home with your loved ones, it’s always fun to dress up! Although glitter is a girl’s best friend, we are straying away from the sparkly look this year. We are ringing in the New Year with some of 2016’s favorite trends, such as the cold shoulder, criss-cross necklines, peep toed booties and choker necklaces.

New Year's Eve Outfit 1

NEW YEAR’S Eve OUTFIT #1:

Step into 2017 with the latest fashions. We took our Elan Cold Shoulder Striped Dress and paired it with Jessica Simpson Peep Toe Booties for an effortless look that everyone will love! Complete your outfit with a Kendra Scott necklace.

Now that your outfit is covered, let’s talk about hair and make-up! No matter what length of hair you have, beach waves are always a good idea. Grab your curling wand and add some loose curls to that beautiful hair of yours. Top your look off with a smoky-eye and some red lipstick.

New Year's Eve Outfit 2

NEW YEAR’S Eve OUTFIT #2:

Perfect for a night out with the girls, this BB Dakota fur vest will leave you looking remarkable this New Year’s Eve. We layered this beautiful vest over a Wishlist Criss-Cross Sweater and a pair of black Flying Monkey Jeans. Keep the choker trend going by adding a Pink Pewter Choker necklace to your outfit.

Keeping the hair and make-up simple will do the trick for this look. A low pony and your favorite studs is all you will need. Adding shimmery eye shadow and nude lipstick will give this natural look a little sass!

New Year's Eve Outfit 3

NEW YEAR’S Eve OUTFIT #3:

Looking for the perfect New Year’s Eve dress? We have you covered. This Lime N Chili Lace Up Dress will be the prefect little black dress for the perfect evening! We’ve paired this Lace Up Dress with Jessica Simpson booties and a Pink Pewter Choker Necklace, that can also play the role of a head band. This look will have everyone’s heads turning!

Now that your outfit is on point, let’s make your hair and make-up just as pretty! A half up top knot messy bun with a few curls will do the trick to complete this look. Adding a smoky eye and a soft pink lipstick will leave you looking flawless all night!

Trend Alert: Frayed Jeans

Western Bootie
Fray is the New Fringe

The past few seasons the fringe trend has been a huge hit! Adding a twist to the fringe world, they have added fringe denim, which is known as released hem, raw hem, or even frayed jeans.  The frayed hem doesn’t stop at the jeans. We are seeing frayed shorts, skirts and tops too. The released hem trend isn’t just made on a skinny jean either, but also on a flared denim. One of our favorite brands, Flying Monkey, came out with a cropped skinny jean that features a raw hem and are a must have staple piece for this season!

Rules of the Frayed Jeans:

  1. The frayed hem should hit right at or above the ankle.
  2. Wear your raw hem jeans with pointy pumps, strappy sandals, ballet flats, casual sneakers, or ankle boots.
  3. Only wear one or two raw hem peices at a time, too much fraying could be an overkill.

Frayed Jeans

We paired our released hem Flying Monkey Jeans with an Elan Fringe Sweater giving this outfit the double fray look. Keeping up with all of the trends this season, we layered our sweater over a Criss-Cross Neck Tee. And topping off our look, we paired our raw hem jeans with our Volatile Haisley Western Ankle Bootie to show off that frayed hem.

How to Style Your Piko Dresses for Fall

As the weather changes so will your wardrobe. It’s time to pack up the tank tops and shorts, and pull out the sweaters and boots. One thing I don’t want to pack up though are my dresses! I love dresses and I am always trying to find ways to style them for the fall. I’ve taken our favorite Piko Swing Dress and styled it three different ways for fall.

Layer it with a blanket scarf

If you don’t have a Piko dress in your closet, I recommend changing that immediately. Piko dresses are so simple and go perfectly with just about anything. When it comes to layering, Piko dresses will be your go to item. Throw a jacket or vest over your dress for a comfortable but yet flattering look. I’ve layered my striped Piko dress with a plaid blanket scarf. Don’t be afraid to mix your prints!

Tie it together with a plaid shirt

Plaid is the must have staple piece for fall. You can never have too many plaid button down shirts!  There are many different ways to wear a plaid shirt, you can layer it under a vest, wear it open with a V-neck tee or tie it around your waist with a dress. I took a solid color Piko Dress and tied a plaid shirt around my waist to add a pop of color to my outfit. Some would call this outfit the tomboy look, but I’ve paired it with peep toed booties for a sassier look. Trade out those booties for a pair of Converse to rock the Tomboy look!

Top this Piko Dress off with a hat, a long necklace, and booties for a simple look that everyone will love.Army Green Piko Dress

5 Key Pieces to Transition Your Wardrobe from Summer to Fall

Hello AutumnThe transition from summer to fall apparel here at Glik’s is in full swing. The clothes I’ve seen cross my desk are so cute and I can barely contain my excitement! I just want to buy all over it!

And a number of pieces stood out as an absolutely key item that will not only be great this fall season, but will also help you transition your wardrobe from summer to fall. Don’t miss these 5 must-have items:

Fringe Sweaters

This Billabong sweater is going to be everyone’s favorite this fall. A lot of girls are already so excited to wear it that they are pairing it with their denim shorts. Fringe was hot this summer and is going to continue to be hot this fall.

Fringe Cardigan

Plaid Shirts

Plaid shirts are always a must-have! They make a simple outfit so much fun. There are three different ways I’ve seen the plaid worn. Buttoned up, kept open or tied around the waist. Tying your plaid around your waist adds character to your outfit. I’ve seen it tied around the waist with a dress, denim shorts or capris. No matter how you wear it, you will always look cute in plaid.

Plaid is rad

Scarves

Scarves are simple but cute when transitioning from summer to fall. The blanket scarf pairs nicely with our Piko tops. These blanket scarves come in a variety of colors making it easy to coordinate with your outfit. Grab your blanket scarf today before they are gone!

Fedoras and Wide Brim Hats

Hats are great for transitioning from summer to fall. Make a statement by adding a wide brim hat to your outfit. The chain detailing on this hat is the perfect finishing touch you need to complete your festive outfit.

Wide Brim Hats

Booties

Every girl needs a pair of booties! Booties look great with bare legs making them perfect for this time of the year. Pair these booties with your favorite dress and a cardigan to enhance your summer-to-fall outfit. If dresses aren’t your style then try wearing your booties with cuffed skinny jeans. You won’t go wrong adding these booties to your boot collection!

Any (or all) of these essential wardrobe pieces will make the transition from summer to fall that much smoother. And as a bonus, these items can be worn both now (of course!) and later (as warm fall layers!)
