How does Patagonia Fit?

how to take better travel photos

Patagonia is an awesome brand that makes clothes that will last a number of years all while trying to reduce their environmental impact.  It makes sense to invest in a piece that will fit you as well as their products will last. Have you been looking at making a Patagonia purchase and you’ve been trying to figure out what size would look best on you? Then keep reading!

While there are many different styles of Patagonia (ex: Los Gatos vest, Synchilla Pullover, Better Sweater, etc) there is only 4 different types of fit for these garments. The four fits are; formfitting, slim fit, regular fit, and relaxed fit. From these four categories we can begin to really figure out which size is the best for you.

Form Fit: The garment should hug your body. These are ideal fit for base layer pieces.

Slim Fit: Should show off your body type but with enough room that you could throw a base layer underneath comfortably.

Regular Fit: This should fit a little looser. You should have enough room under these types of styles to wear a heavier base layer comfortably.

Relaxed Fit: With this style of fit you should have a lot of room and should be able to layer quite a bit under these garments.

Most of our Patagonia that we carry at Glik’s is going to be either regular or slim fit. For the most true to size fit for those pieces you should try to order the size that typically works best for you. If you are confused about what your true size may be, refer to the chart above. You can take your own chest, waist, and hip measurements to see what size would be best!

In the photos below you can see our model wearing a size small and a size medium of the Slim Fit ¼ Better Sweater Fleece Pullover. If you are wanting more of a looser fit on items that are label as Slim Fit, try sizing up for more of that Regular Fit. But on her true size (small)  the garment is a little form fitting but still loose enough that she could add layers underneath.

These also fit true to size with more room to add some layers slightly heavier base layers underneath for chilly winter time adventures.

How to Wear Denim on Denim

how to wear

The fall season is right around the corner and we want to challenge you to try and step out of your fashion comfort zone a little this season! One way to try something new is putting some of your denim pieces together for a bold denim on denim look. Denim on denim, also known as the Canadian Tuxedo, was once seen by a lot of people as a fashion NO, but we see it as a fashion YES, YOU SHOULD BE WEARING DENIM ON DENIM and here is how…

keep darker denim on bottom

Try and keep your darker denim on bottom. Also keeping the denim more well fitted for you body type will be the most flattering way to rock the double denim trend! 


DENIM ON DENIM (1)

add some texture

To make sure to keep the denim on denim trend interesting try adding different textured pieces! A great way to get in your textures are to add a snake skin shoe like these or a sherpa lined jean jacket!


2

try a statement shoe & tee

The denim doesn’t have to have all the spotlight! Put on your favorite tee and a bold shoe to try more of a rocker look. Similar washed denim can be a little tricky but with the right shoes and a dark band tee makes this whole outfit look well put together!


3

Add colorful pieces

Denim on denim is basically the same as wearing two neutral pieces together. Be sure to add all your favorite statement pieces to keep you from looking too monochromatic.  A well fitting jean skirt with a lighter washed chambray shirt is the perfect way to show off those bright shoes and accessories!


5 (2)

Throw on more neutrals

Plain and simple, fashion shouldn’t be difficult. Throw on a neutral shoe with a cute bralette and don’t over think it! You can have a trend-setter look with minimal effort when you throw on your double denim with other neutral pieces!

Styles We Love: Romper Edition

styles we loveRompers are basically just a dress that offers a little more freedom, and we are here for it. They are also a socially acceptable onesie that you can go out in, we are here for that! Nothing is better than simple fashion that does the work for you, and rompers are basically in OT with how cute they make us look with zero effort on our part.

Another one of our favorite things about rompers is that they always look good with whatever shoes you pair with them. As you can see from the photos, they look absolutely perfect with just a bralette and maybe a little bit of jewelry depending on the occasion.

Rompers are also a great piece to transition you into fall weather. You can just throw on some booties, maybe a cardigan, and have you have yourself a fall ready look. Or if you really want a trendy style, throw a long sleeve flowy white shirt underneath; you’ll be warm and have a super stylish look. Thankfully we have about two and half more months of good summer weather and don’t have to think about how to wear our cute rompers in autumn weather quite yet!

If you haven’t added a romper to your wardrobe yet, now is the time! If you are already a romper feign, then you will need to check out the gorgeous new styles that we just added to Gliks.com! Below we have 5 rompers that will be just what your closet has needed!

The striped surplice romper from Everly would be perfect for date night or to pack for your next vacation. The Amuse Society is actually a skort style jersey romper that gives you the illusion of a dress but with the comfort of shorts.

Summer Dresses~ The Maxi Dress

Summer Dresses

Easily one of the best parts of the summer season are dresses, and while there are so many styles of dresses today, we are going to be talking about the maxi dress. Nothing beats throwing on a dress in the morning and walking out the door looking #flawless. Whether you are wearing a maxi dress for a special occasion or for days of running around town, here are 4 maxi dresses that we are currently crushing on here at Glik’s.

3

The first maxi dress is by Everly. Everly is a brand that you know will always have quality clothing with a girly, feminine style. This dress is a super versatile wrap dress in a beautiful colorway. Our shoe recommendation would be a simple peep toe mule shoe or try an espadrille platform shoe to give you some height! Honestly, any shoe or accessory would pair well with this dress because of its beautiful neutral color, but you should definitely try and accessorize with your favorite sun hat!

2

If you want a more casual dress for everyday wear, you have to check out the Elan Clothing Halter Striped Maxi Dress in Navy. It’s a jersey knit dress with on seam hand pockets, and a rounded hem. Try knotting the bottom and putting on some strappy heels with your favorite accessories for a more dressed up look for nights out. We are loving them with some platform espadrille wedges to give you a little height with your look. For a comfier style try pairing it with some super comfy Sanuk sandals for pool days.

4

We of course have to talk about the two piece maxi dress option. Illa Illa has so many adorable two piece sets that are just perfect for summer. The floral patterns are the perfect summer pattern. This particular set comes in two different colorways and has a shorts lining, which is amazing for days where you want to be on the move and wear a dress. Bonus! ~ you can always pair the top with your favorite distressed shorts and some Borks. Or you can try wearing the skirt with a solid Piko top and some strappy sandals by Soda. There’s really so many outfit options with a two piece set!

1

The Storia Palm Print maxi dress is another one of our faves. Palm print, ruffles, and off the shoulder are very on trend details of the season, and this dress gives you all of those things in the most stylish way! This dress will look amazing with the City Classified Hudson shoes or any other neutral colored low heel. This type of shoe will perfectly match everything in your closet and you definitely need to add our straw bag to give your look more of those beachy vibes.

How You Need to Be Wearing White Denim This Season

How to wear White Denim

White denim has always been a thing, but if you have ever been wary of the white denim trend, it’s time to face your fears! LUCKILY, there are so many styles or ways you can wear white denim, so you don’t have to just do the classic white skinny jean (but classics, are classics for a reason). You can mix up the white denim trend and try a denim skirt, or a pair of shortalls, or a trendy skort.

White denim can either be a statement piece for your outfit or it can be a way to showcase your favorite piece of clothing. This must have item makes any outfit look clean and fresh, which is perfect for summer, but you better believe that these can also roll you into fall (but that’s a blog post for another day.) Here are 4 ways you need to try wearing your white denim this season.

Monochromatic White Denim trend

Monochromatic: White denim with a white top, is definitely the most daring of all the white denim trends. But to make it easier, just remember that you probably also loved the all black wardrobe trend and this is basically the same thing but the more summer friendly version of the two (aka less likely to absorb all those warm little sun rays). This look is so clean and simple, without a doubt it will make you look sophisticated and put together.

White Denim with a Pop of Color

A Pop of Color: Basically, the same concept as the monochromatic look, but throw some of your favorite pieces on there to make them really stand out. Your outfit becomes the canvas and you get to showcase whatever trendy item you wanna show off! I recommend, a jean jacket or any other of your favorite dressier outerwear pieces. If it’s too hot for a jacket, throw on some statement earrings, a daring shoe choice, or a colorful bag. You can even opt for a more muted pop of color with a simple beige or a light blue.

Statement tops with white jeans

A Statement Top: A lot of jeans can take away from a beautiful statement top, but with a pair of white jeans you are making sure that the shirt that “you just need to have or you would die” is the center of attention!  A pair of white jeans also makes that shirt that otherwise might have been borderline casual, an office ready look! Then you can throw on a neutral shoe to accent the top more, or grab a statement shoe choice to compliment your blouse.

Casual outfit with white jean

Casual: A tee shirt and a pair of jeans, is always a good idea. AGAIN, (sorry I sound like a broken record over here) white denim elevates your jean and tee style! Classic denim shorts, for example, tend to be casual style piece, but white denim shorts look mature and classy with whatever you wear them with! So whether you throw on a basic graphic tee or a solid colored tank, you cannot go wrong with a basic tee and some white denim.

White denim is definitely a great option if you want to raise the denim bar. All it takes is one simple piece of denim to help you create very different styles. For more creative ideas on how to wear white denim be sure to check out the Glik’s Official Instagram, where we post outfit ideas and new arrivals! And to shop the best white jean pieces be sure to head over to Gliks.com. Tell us in the comments how you like to style your white denim!

Shoes That Won’t Hurt Your Feet or Your Budget

Adorable and Afforable (1)

Finding adorable and affordable shoes for your closet can be a pain. Especially in the summer time because we all know flip flops are not exactly known for their supportive soles. Here at Glik’s we actually have a large selection of shoes that will support your feet and your wallet. cc

City Classified Shoes | $29

 City Classified Shoes Comfort Andro Wedge Heels in Tan were made for your busy lifestyle.  They look like your classic micro wedge heel, but really they are jam packed with comfort. With a lined and padded footbed and a soft foam padding you’ll be able to wear these shoes all day!

 

5

Sperry Top Sider | $60

I love Espadrilles. Love them. But typically they have little to no sole or cushioning. This is where Sperry saves the day. Almost all their shoes have a memory foam footbed, ya know the stuff that people make mattresses out of? Yeah, these shoes are so comfy you could basically sleep on them.

4

Mia Shoes | $30

The Mia Shoes Lynn Strappy Sandals in Black and in Cognac are such a treat for a pair of strappy sandals. These gladiator style shoes have a super padded rubber outsole and footbed. Cute and actually a wearable sandal?! Get one in both colors, because these are going to be your summer staple.

Adorable and Afforable

Sanuk Yoga Sandals | $38

Okay, these shoes are kind of a no brainer with a name with the word yoga in it. You can also get these fun knitted sling style uppers in so many styles or colors. The footbed is made out of yoga mats, so you can definitely skip the yoga class, and get your Namaste on with the Sanuk Yoga Sandals.

3

Qupid Shoes | $20

Qupid shoes are great for their comfortability factor, since they all have a lightly cushioned footbed and a low price point. But my favorite Qupid Shoes lately are the Comfy Banded Slides that come in Carmel, Black, and White. These Comfy shoes are an ideal summer footwear option, they give you that simple sandal silhouette with a comfortable footbed.

With this selection of shoes at Glik’s you can have comfortable, trendy shoe styles without breaking your budget. For more styling tips and ideas be sure to check out Gliks’ Instagram! Happy shopping ya’ll!
