Big City Fashion – Men’s Division Trip to NYC – By Nicole O’Dell

The Glik Men’s Division traveled to New York this past June 2011 to finish up Holiday and preview Spring 2012.

We started our trip at the Levi showroom on Broadway.

Here khaki is important as well as denim.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here is a sneak peak at some of our new Levi washes for Spring 12.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Hand Me Down showroom offered an array of brands.

Here Jim Glik is ordering some super cool graphic tees.  Novelty tees are happening again!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bench is a new brand coming this fall to Glik’s. It evolved in the Canadian Market and has now expanded to the United States.  We are buying some excellent fleece and jackets.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

At the Affliction showroom we checked out the new Holiday styles.

Their American Customs line has great new bright bold motorcycle inspired styles.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What is trending in the Men’s Market?  Khaki Safari and Heritage Americana.

We have it all at Gliks!

What’s Your Style? – BoHo Chic

Our “Style” post today is influenced by bohemian and hippie looks.  The BoHo look seems to be even hotter this summer than usual with all of the maxi dresses and gladiator sandals.  BoHo chic is all about the “floaty” skirts and the floral and embroidered prints.

Outfit 1:  A belted maxi dress is your go-to look for this style, especially paired with a great pair of brown gladiator sandals with a slight heel.  Add some bangles and a feather earring for some extra flair.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dress: My Beloved – Maxi with Belt

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Gladiators: City Classified

 

Outfit 2:

This floral print dress looks great by itself when it’s hot, or with a pair of distressed Silver jeans when it’s cooler.  Gladiators always work as a go-to shoe for this look, but western-inspired boots would give it an added edge.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dress: Mine

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Gladiators: Codify

 

Outfit 3:

This top puts a modern spin on the hippie look, and these distressed shorts a must-have for hot summer days.  These cut out sandals are a perfect match to finish off the look.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Top: Mine

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Shorts: Machine

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sandals: Wanted

 

And, of course, every BoHo chic girl needs a classic pair of aviators.

This simple top looks great by itself or layered under a button down or a jacket.

 

Every girl needs a white summer dress.

 

Tank tops are always in. Dress this up with a blazer and dark jeans, or down with your fav pair of shorts and flip flops.

 

This loose-fitting top is great for hot summer nights. White shorts and chunky jewelry top off the outfit.

 

Neon, stripes, and a maxi dress, all great trends. This is a great dress to throw over your swimsuit and hit the beach.

 

Be the Buyer 2: Day 5

Trend Alert: Aztec, Navajo and Tribal Prints

Aztec, Navajo and Tribal prints are hot this summer.  We started seeing these bright designs on cozy knits this past winter, and now the trend is being continued on through light, colorful shirts and dresses designed with the warm months in mind.  These classic designs have a BoHo chic feel to them, making them perfect for just about any occasion, depending on the accessories.

This dress from Mind Code is perfect for either day or night.  Pair it with your favorite gladiator sandals for the beach or dress it up for date night with a pair of wedges.

This great shirt from Valentine looks great paired with jeans and a chic Boho bag for a day at the mall.

Pair some feathered earings with this fabulous Navajo inspired dress from Lush for a great traditional look.  This dress is also a razor back style, which is another hot look trend right now.

These prints look great with turquoise or feather accessories.  Add gladiator sandals or wedges and a BoHo bag with fringe detailing and you’re all set.
