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.

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!

Love Stitch Cozy Cardigan

Cozy Cardis For the Win

Snuggle up this winter with a cardigan that will be sure to keep you warm. This Love Stitch Cardigan will be your new favorite cardigan. It is has long sleeves, a hood, and is extremely soft! You’ll love this cardigan so much that you will want one in every color! This layering piece is so simple that it’ll become your go-to piece this winter.

My favorite thing about over-sized cardigans is that they are super versatile! (In particular this long sleeve hooded cardigan in brick from Love Stitch Clothing.) Cozy cardigans are very easy to style and look great on all body types! They can be dressed up or down, which makes them great for a night out with friends or to quickly grab while on the run doing errands or going to class!

For a casual look, pair this hooded cardigan with a graphic tee or tank, a pair of leggings, and your favorite Converse or fashion sneakers.  I also love to add a CC Beanie to my look, especially during the winter months! To dress it up, wear the cardigan over a fashion tee, distressed denim, a chunky knit scarf (like this Free People Fringe Scarf) and over the knee boots. Whatever you decide, you’ll be sure to stay in style with this cozy hooded cardigan from Love Stitch Clothing!

Oversized Cardigans That Will Make You Love Winter

As the temperature starts to drop, it’s time to pull out your favorite cardigans. This year it’s all about the oversized cardigans. These winter must haves are perfect for that simple, throw on and go look.

Oversized Cardigans

This winter you can find me in an oversized cardigan just about every day! These cardigans are so comfortable you’ll want one in every color. For a casual look, we paired our oversized cardigan with a basic tee, our favorite jeans, and a pair of over the knee boots. This look is so simple that you will have it on repeat all winter long!

For a more comfortable look, if that’s even possible, rock your oversized cardigan with a pair of leggings and tennis shoes. Just throw a braid in your hair and take your lazy day look to a whole new level.

 Transitioning Your Bralette for Fall

Burgundy Piko with braletteLook by M Cardigan with braletteRaise your hand if you’re obsessed with bralettes! I know I am! I own them in about 5 different colors and layer them under all my basic tops. I’m a bralette junkie!

The trend started with the original basic racerback and now, they are expanding with multiple necklines and back details. We layered them under tank tops and our favorite Piko tops over the summer to show off the lace and criss cross cage detailing. As a huge supporter of this trend, we want to see it continue into fall. Check out the different ways we have layered our favorite styles for fall.

The Halter Bralette

We have styled our Wishlist lace bralette in a beautiful blush color under a burgundy V-neck Piko sweater. The lace on this halter peeks out just around the neckline of this sweater, giving it an elegant look that everyone will love.  This is the perfect look for those cozy Sundays when you want to look cute, but don’t feel like getting out of bed!

The Racerback Bralette

We took our olive racerback bralette and layered it under a black Z Supply tee. This is a trend we saw a lot over the summer. To transition this look for fall, we layered it with a chunky cardigan from Look by M. Again, an effortless look that is perfect for those lazy days when you just want to stay warm and be cozy.

White Jeans: How to Transition into Fall

White Jeans after Labor Day

Everyone says you can’t wear white after Labor Day… but let’s be honest; the fashion police aren’t going to come after you if you do. So don’t be afraid to wear white jeans after Labor Day. Here are a few ways we like to style our white jeans for fall.

Shoes at Glik's

What shoes should I wear with white jeans this fall?

It’s that time of the year again, time to pack up the flip flops and sandals and pull out the boots! If you think it’s too early for boots, you can always wear your Sperry Top-Siders, TOMS or Converse until it is officially boot season!

Booties are always a must have for this transition from summer to fall. Wear black or brown booties with your white jeans to give it a fall look. You won’t regret adding a pair of booties to your boot collection this fall.

Accessories at Glik's

What kind of accessories should I wear with my white jeans this fall?

Scarves are a great piece to add to your outfit! Pair them with a basic and your jeans for a simple but cute look. And you can never go wrong with a statement necklace! Wear a statement necklace with autumn colored Piko tops and jeans for another simple look.
Glik's Outfit

What kind of tops should I wear with my white jeans this fall?

Chambray, Brown, Black, Beige, Olive, and Marsala are all great autumn colors. Piko tops are a must have basic for this fall and will look great. Denim or chambray tops paired with a cardigan or a jacket will make your jeans pop this fall.

Jackets at Glik's

You can never go wrong adding plaid to your white jeans outfit. We are loving the plaid hood and elbow patches on this utility jacket! Get yours today before they sell out, again!

Trend Alert: The Coatigan

If there’s one trend you try this season, it must be the Coatigan trend! What is a Coatigan you might ask? Well, it’s the brilliant idea of a coat and cardigan hybrid. The Coatigan is designed for the trendy chick that still needs to stay warm but wants to continuously look fashionable. These open fly-away cardigans are virtually replacing the coat this season.

Love Stitch Coatigan

Coatigans come in many different shapes, sizes, and colors. We carry amazing brands such as Elan, Jack and BB Dakota, and Love Stitch that have designed Coatigans with fun prints and patterns. An Aztec or southwestern print is great for your fall look.

Essential Layering Pieces for Fall

If you have been out shopping lately, I am sure you have seen all of the fall clothing hitting stores. I don’t know about you, but I am SO excited to start wearing my cardigans, scarves, and boots. Layering clothing for the fall gives you the opportunity to show your creativity and style. Glik’s can help you find those essential layering pieces for fall!

Cardigans

The first fall essential on our list is the thin cardigan. Thin cardigans can be your best friend since they are easy to layer and create an effortless, yet stylish look. Our Poof Cardigans are the perfect thin layering sweater. You can be super trendy this fall season by throwing a cardigan on over your jumpsuits, rompers, or dresses.

Button-ups

Button-ups can be used to really elevate your outfit. If you have a plain sweater and need to spice it up a little, try pairing it with a patterned button-up. Button-up shirts also look great left open with another shirt underneath. Pairing plaid button-ups with graphic tees will create a huge statement this fall.

Scarves

Who doesn’t love scarves!? If you are ever in need of an accessory to complete your outfit, a scarf is your go-to piece. Scarves are comfortable to wear and look amazing when layering your outfits. If you are hesitant to wear scarves because you would rather show off your necklaces– no worries!  Layering scarves and necklaces together is super cute and trendy. Wear your necklace on the top of your scarf or vice versa this fall.

Leggings

If you still want to wear leggings this fall, you are in luck! Leggings are great for layering and look great with tunics and dresses. For this look, we paired a plain dress with a fun patterned legging. It really adds character and personality to an otherwise simple dress! Another reason we love leggings is the fact that they look great tucked in tall riding boots or combat boots. (And they are oh, so comfortable!).

Chambray Shirt

Last, but certainly not least on our list, is the chambray shirt. If you don’t already have a chambray shirt you must get one! We are in love with this Ellison brand chambray button-up shirt. Anyone can style this chambray shirt to cater to her personal style. Layer it with scarves, button-up shirts, and sweaters for an uber chic style.
