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!

White Jeans: How to Transition into Fall

Menswear Trends for Fall

We all know that fall is a time for layers. All too soon, jackets, dark wash denim, long-sleeve wovens, hoodies, and close toe kicks will replace our standard summer styles. This season, we foresee that closets will be filled with a mix of menswear styles ranging from classic to eccentric, and for those guys who are daring enough to venture outside the style ‘norm’ (my favorite), expect to see the truly unexpected from men’s fashion trends this fall.

 As far as Fall 2013 goes, expect to notice an introduction of different silhouettes and styles popping up in menswear. No longer are the days of blatant branding and in your face masculine fits– think boxy, baggy shapes and unimaginative logos that are there to make your chest look like a free advertising space (even though you paid for it). I – a female that loves to see a man with style– am so excited to see the revival of bare basics (think seksi white V-neck) and innovative graphics that take inspiration from actual real life issues and artistic references. Have you seen some of the graphic tees out there for both men and women? Pretty funny stuff…

Duck hoody

The use of quirky, vintage-inspired, but often unusual prints can be seen across the board in menswear this fall. We have already seen hints of print– like the mallards in this hoodie– in key items like button downs, t-shirts, sweaters, socks, and even embroidered on certain pants. Now that the weather has cooled down we can combine them with outdoor inspired pieces like (our favorite) the Men’s Bivy Down Vest from Patagonia.

Expect to see the camo print transitioning over from summer into the cooler fall/holiday seasons. Not all of the menswear community will be getting ready for hunting season– different type of camo. Think military camo; from traditional bright greens and olive hues. Designer’s deconstructed interpretation on the print can be seen making its way from the runways to the streets, and we’re excited to see all the different ways that men will be wearing the camo print. We love the idea of combining two trends by pairing this men’s chambray dinosaur print button down woven with the 1897 Men’s Twill Pant in camo print.

Layer this heather grey men’s button down sweater over top of the printed woven for extra warmth when a light jacket is not needed. Autumn is my favorite season both men’s and women’s fashion; the colder temperatures allow for more freedom when layering–especially for men– that summer’s heat does not. Jackets can be layered over sweaters, hoodies, or full zips, which will pair over top of long sleeve henleys, thermals, t-shirts, button down wovens, and the endless amount of options goes on.

Ready to step outside your comfort zone, guys? This new shift in men’s fashion has created numerous options and a large variety of ways for men’s scarves to be introduced into your closet. Big, bold statement scarves will eventually find their way around the neck of men everywhere in twisted-up, knotted tight, and in printed styles. Go for an easy infinity knit scarf to introduce to your closet if you’re unsure of how to work a scarf into your autumn outfit agenda. This simple men’s plaid scarf is easy to style with sweater and jacket combos. Dark indigo denim washes are essential for heightening the handsome factor to your look. A timeless pair of dark wash men’s selvedge denim jeans in a straight fit are classic and have a never-ending ‘cool’ factor.  Take a look at our selection of men’s Silver Jeans and our exclusive 1897 denim line for men to find your favorite fit and wash for fall.

Lucky for us, wearing white bottoms past Labor Day will be acceptable this fall. Pair a denim or chambray top with a classic pair of white skinny bottoms for a classic chic outfit that can be dressed up with heels or kept casual with a cuffed bottom and sneakers.
