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.

Let’s Talk About February 14th Fashion…

happy vday

Okay… whether you love or hate celebrating Valentine’s Day, why not have an excuse to purchase a new outfit?!  From dresses and rompers to cozy and casual outfits, we have been receiving a lot of new Spring product at Gliks and we cannot wait to share it all with you!

Ladies, for those of you who are scrambling around trying to decide what to wear to impress your man (or your Galentines), we’ve picked out a few outfits for you!

Dressy & Flirty

everly romper

How darling is this Everly Clothing Plaid Romper?! This just screams class and makes us wish we had every item of clothing in Cher Horowitz’s (cue Clueless reference) closet! This romper has a self-tie design on the front with an encased elastic waistband to define your shape.  The flowy fit and neutral coloring of this outfit makes it super easy to dress up or down! To dress it up for Valentine’s Day, pair this romper with the Qupid Shoes Chamber Woven Peep Toe Heels in Black.

everly purple

Also from Everly, this simple shift dress with bell sleeves makes our hearts happy! The purple pastel color gives your wardrobe that pop of Spring and puts a little pep in your step.  If you’re heading to a fancy dinner or romantic getaway, this dress is for you! Since the design is so simple, it gives you room to put your own twist on how you decide to accessorize! We went ahead and paired the dress with this oh-so-versatile pair of Qupid Shoes Chamber Distressed Strappy Heels in Taupe!

CUTE & Cozy

salmon twist back

This is a completely biased opinion, but we believe EVERY WOMAN needs a twist back sweater in her wardrobe, like this one from Miracle Clothing! It is so elegant and cozy all in one.  The twist back detail takes this chunky knit sweater to the next level.  It is perfect for casual cute evenings with your man, or out to dinner and drinks with your girlfriends! If pink isn’t your color, don’t worry! This sweater comes in multiple colors 🙂  Pair this sweater with a pair of peep toe booties, like these from Qupid Shoes, and your favorite accessories and you’ll be good to go!

pearl cardigan

If you want to kick things up a notch, add some delicate detailed pearls to your outfit!  The long line silhouette, bubble sleeves, and pearl details bring a feminine touch to your overall facade.  Pairing this cardigan with some blown out denim, like these KanCan Jeans, will dress your look down a bit.  The best thing about cozy cardigans is being able to dress them up or down! Depending on the look you are trying to achieve, finish this outfit with a pair of ankle booties or a pair of Converse sneakers!

Laid Back & Casual

vanilla bay

Now, if your plan for Valentine’s Day revolves around watching your favorite RomComs (Love Actually and The Proposal, we’re talking to you) and indulging in chocolate covered strawberries with your besties (or if you and your man boycott V-Day) this outfit is for you! This simple color block tee from Vanilla Bay, distressed denim, and Converse is a look that you will wear on repeat each season.  Laid back styles that are also cute and fashionable are what we LIVE for!

sherpa

Does your date night involve the outdoors? Don’t stress over what to wear! Throw on a sherpa pullover and CC Beanie and the rest will follow suit.  This outfit is also a great investment for your cold weather wardrobe! It has all the necessities that you can wear from daytime shopping and lunch to night walks around the park and on the town.  Slip on your favorite pair of over the knee boots or ankle booties and you’ve got your outfit in the bag!

If you still aren’t convinced you need to buy a new outfit after reading this post, we think you should reconsider! These outfit options are perfect for whatever occasion you have in mind and they will help take your wardrobe to the next level. Shop the latest arrivals in women’s fashion at gliks.com!

Gift Ideas for Last Minute Shoppers

Can you believe there are only a few shopping days left until Christmas?  Me either!  I hate to say it, but I still have a few people to buy for. Nothing like waiting till the last minute I guess. Here are a few last minute gift ideas, for guys and gals, if you procrastinated like I did 🙂

1.  Stance Socks. You may not have liked getting socks for Christmas when you were a kid, but having fun and colorful socks is a must have accessory this holiday season! Stance socks come in a ton of colors and patterns. They have a seamless toe and deep pockets for your heels.  They are the perfect gift for that guy or gal on your list!

2.  Scarves.  Who doesn’t love a cozy scarf when it’s chilly outside?  Scarves are great gift ideas for any guy or girl on your list.  Scarves are one size fits all that can be worn with or without their coat.

4.  North Face Apex Etip Gloves:  Not only will these gloves keep their hands warm, they won’t have to take them off to use their phone or other electronics with a touch screen.  They also offer wind protection and have a water resistant finish.  I have given these as gifts before and they were a big hit!

5.  Gifts-in-a-jar.  If you are wanting to take the DIY route, gifts-in-a-jar are perfect.  They are simple, inexpensive and fun!  For the gal on your list, you can make a Comfy Cozy gift jar.  Add hot cocoa mix, marshmallows, candy canes and a couple of mugs and you are all set.  You could even add a scarf and gloves to make it even cozier :). For the guy on your list:  a way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.  Fill a jar full of all his favorite snack foods:  chips, dip, candy, trail mix and maybe even a few bottles of soda.  I can guarantee any guy would love to receive this gift idea!
