How to Take Jeans from Day to Night

header

If you are anything like us, you have a busy schedule day in and day out.  Whether it is school, work, social commitments, or what-have-you, it can be hard to find those staple pieces that will carry you throughout the day in style (and through the seasons).

This being said, today’s post is all about how you can take jeans from day to night! Specifically, the KanCan Jeans Blown Out Distressed Denim.  Can we talk about the blown out detail at the knee for a sec? LOVE. Busted knee denim is so in right now and will totally transform your look. You wouldn’t at first think that a huge hole in the knee of your pants would be so chic and trendy, but in today’s fashion world you can never be surprised! If blown out or distressed denim isn’t for you, then you will be sure to find a different pair of KanCan Jeans that will suit your needs! We swear by this denim.  They are so comfy and great quality that you will never want to buy another brand of denim again.

Wearing a pair of jeans from a day at work to a night out is so simple.  All it takes is a quick change of shoes and top and you are good to go! Denim is really on the up and up in the fashion world, and it is becoming SO much more acceptable for different occasions. Below we gave you three options on how to wear the KanCan Blown Out Knee Denim from casual to dressy.

This look is perfect to wear while running morning errands or attending class. This windbreaker pullover is stylish yet comfortable. It gives off a super relaxed vibe, and pairing it with a pair of Converse or fashion sneakers brings it all together.

If you have a commitment that involves dressing up a little bit without looking too fancy, then this outfit is for you.  The blown out denim still gives off a casual vibe, but layering the tops steps it up a notch.  We love pairing our denim with moto or anorak jackets. It is great for this time of the year when you aren’t quite sure what the temperature is going to be like all day! Wear this look with short booties or flats and you are ready to go brunching with the gals!

{Dressy}

Don’t have time to go home and fully change after work before dinner with the girls? Keep on your jeans and slip on a pair of strappy heels! This smocked crop top is also super trendy and could be paired with a denim jacket if you are brave enough to rock denim on denim 🙂 Crop tops not your style? Wear this look with your favorite peplum or wrap blouse from work, throw on some statement jewelry, and you are ready to hit the town.

Pantone Spring 2016 Colors at Glik’s

I’m not sure about you, but as soon as the holidays are over, I am ready for spring. I cannot wait to see what the newest trends and colors are for spring in clothing, shoes, accessories and of course, makeup.

Every year the Pantone Color Institute selects a color of the year.  For 2016, they chose 2 colors:  Rose Quartz and Serenity.

“Joined together Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and place”.  Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director, Pantone Color Institute.

I must say, both colors are beautiful and will easily pair with so many other colors.

In the coming months, you’ll see the Pantone Spring 2016 Colors have a huge impact on what you see in stores. Here are a few pieces we love right now that are inspired by these beautiful colors:

Piko Three Quarter Sleeve Tunic Dress in Nude.  If you haven’t jumped on the Piko bandwagon, now is the time.  This Piko is basically the perfect top.  It is oversized and can be worn with skinny jeans or leggings.  Since its nude in color, you can pair it with the Limited Edition Sephora + Pantone Universe Modern Watercolors Eye Palette for a pop of color.

CC Beanies.  Yes it’s going to be spring before we know it, but we still need to wear our beanies to keep us warm in the last few months of winter. If you are tired of your basic black beanie, try a new color: Ivory, Taupe, Beige, Melange Grey, Sea Foam, Rose, and Indie Pink.  Painting your nails with a spring color will also help get you through the next 3 months of winter.  Here are a few of my favorite shades for spring and they happen to be similar shades of Rose Quartz and Serenity. They will even match your new CC Beanie!   Pillow Pie by Smith & Cult, Tra-La-La by Dior, Pret a Surfer by Essie, and Blue Orchid by Deborah Lippmann.

Lovestitch Carys Fringed Shawl Sweater in Indigo Blue.  This sweater was a favorite for Fall/Winter 2015 and will still be a favorite for Spring 2016.  One of the newest colors is Indigo Blue.  This is a versatile color that looks good on just about everyone.  This shawl sweater looks great when worn with skinny jeans and your favorite booties.  Add Sephora + Pantone Universe Color of the Year Layer Lipstick in Rose Quartz to finish off your look.  This lip color looks great layered or mixed with other shades.

The North Face Trivert Logo Pullover Hoodie.  This hoodie comes in Raspberry Rose Heather, Coastline Blue Heather and Radiant Orange/Mid Grey to brighten up your dreary winter days.  They have double layered hoods that keep you cozy warm, but the hoodie itself is lightweight and breathable.  Throw on your fleece lined leggings and some lipgloss (Try Enamored Hi-Shine Gloss Lip Lacquer Lipgloss in Moonglow by Marc Jacobs) and you will be ready for a little post holiday shopping or just hanging at your favorite coffee shop.

New Year's Outfit for MenWith Christmas upon us, New Year’s is just around the corner. So, how are you gonna dress your hubby?… Or yourself for that matter. Whether you need an extra gift for yourself or a man in your life, I’ve hand picked a New Year’s Outfit for Men that’s sure to get some compliments when that clock hits midnight.

New Year's Outfit for MenEven though the weather has been absurdly warm, I’d be willing to bet the chill will be back for New Year’s. And with that, comes a prime opportunity to rock a new quarter-zip or sweater. For the more outdoorsy male, I’d be sure to grab this Kuhl quarter-zip. It will still leave you with that rugged feel, yet a classy one at that. New Year's Outfit for MenHowever, we do have great options on trendy, yet classy, sweaters. This one here is easily my favorite. Aztec just really gets to me you know???

Next up, let’s talk about some shirts. We have plenty of shirts that surely won’t break the bank, and just about all of them will look great with the above outerwear. You can find them all on one page here.

Next, let’s move down a bit to the pants. Personally, I cannot recommend better pants than these. New Year's Outfit for MenAs the comfiest khakis I’ve ever worn, it’s no wonder why I put them on here. They have some stretch to them that adds an incredible level of comfort, and to top that off, the color is perfect. However, I get that some people may want to rock some denim, and in that case, I’d have to go with these 1897 jeans as my favorites.

Now, to top off the outfit, it’s all about what’sNew Year's Outfit for Men at the bottom of those feet. Shoes are cool, but socks can really add that extra style to an outfit. Here, we have a plethora of stylin’ Stance socks to bring in the New Year with.

Check out the picture to the right and upper right as an example. For me, Chukkas are without a doubt the best trend in footwear right now. They are classy, functional, and can still look great after getting down and dirty. Here, you can find my personal favorite Chukka we carry. It’s Timberland, so you know the quality is there. However, because the quality comes with a bit of a price, here is a close second that won’t break the bank.

Hope you enjoyed this helpful holiday blog, and have a great New Year!
