The Main Strip Frayed Vneck Sweater

Screen shot 2018-01-08 at 2.17.53 PMScreen shot 2018-01-09 at 4.06.08 PMOkay, so winter may not be my favorite season, but there is always one thing that I love about cold days, and that’s the sweater options! There is something almost magical about getting a new sweater and the Main Strip Frayed Vneck Sweater is a sweater that I have been absolutely smitten with since the first time laid eyes on it. This frayed cropped sweater comes in mustard, grey, mauve, and ivory, which are all beautiful muted tones that go well with whatever shoes, pants, or jeans you can think to wear them with. Definitely one of my favorite things about this sweater is how many things I can wear it with and feel like am an actual vogue-fashionista-model. This sweater makes it easy to look cute and it is the kind of comfy feel-good sweater that you naturally gravitate to!

Another major plus about this sweater is that it can be transitioned into all the seasonal outfits you can think of. Right now I like to wear it with my black ripped Silver denim and throw on my Levi’s denim jacket for a little more edge (and maybe a CC Beanie for a little more warmth)! For a relaxed lazy weekend look, I love this sweater with my high waisted light washed denim and some fuzzy socks when I hang out at my friends’ homes. But as soon as the weather warms up, I cannot wait to style this sweater with a bralette, a faux suede taupe skirt, and ankle booties, for a look to wear at the office or a casual night out!

The Main Strip Frayed Vneck Sweater is the kind of quintessential piece for your wardrobe! No matter what the temperature may be outside this sweater will be there for any look. Now sweater weather can officially last forever (maybe without the cold weather part though).  To shop these looks be sure to head to Gliks.com!

Trend Alert: Frayed Jeans

Western Bootie
Fray is the New Fringe

The past few seasons the fringe trend has been a huge hit! Adding a twist to the fringe world, they have added fringe denim, which is known as released hem, raw hem, or even frayed jeans.  The frayed hem doesn’t stop at the jeans. We are seeing frayed shorts, skirts and tops too. The released hem trend isn’t just made on a skinny jean either, but also on a flared denim. One of our favorite brands, Flying Monkey, came out with a cropped skinny jean that features a raw hem and are a must have staple piece for this season!

Rules of the Frayed Jeans:

  1. The frayed hem should hit right at or above the ankle.
  2. Wear your raw hem jeans with pointy pumps, strappy sandals, ballet flats, casual sneakers, or ankle boots.
  3. Only wear one or two raw hem peices at a time, too much fraying could be an overkill.

Frayed Jeans

We paired our released hem Flying Monkey Jeans with an Elan Fringe Sweater giving this outfit the double fray look. Keeping up with all of the trends this season, we layered our sweater over a Criss-Cross Neck Tee. And topping off our look, we paired our raw hem jeans with our Volatile Haisley Western Ankle Bootie to show off that frayed hem.

How to Style Your Piko Dresses for Fall

As the weather changes so will your wardrobe. It’s time to pack up the tank tops and shorts, and pull out the sweaters and boots. One thing I don’t want to pack up though are my dresses! I love dresses and I am always trying to find ways to style them for the fall. I’ve taken our favorite Piko Swing Dress and styled it three different ways for fall.

Layer it with a blanket scarf

If you don’t have a Piko dress in your closet, I recommend changing that immediately. Piko dresses are so simple and go perfectly with just about anything. When it comes to layering, Piko dresses will be your go to item. Throw a jacket or vest over your dress for a comfortable but yet flattering look. I’ve layered my striped Piko dress with a plaid blanket scarf. Don’t be afraid to mix your prints!

Tie it together with a plaid shirt

Plaid is the must have staple piece for fall. You can never have too many plaid button down shirts!  There are many different ways to wear a plaid shirt, you can layer it under a vest, wear it open with a V-neck tee or tie it around your waist with a dress. I took a solid color Piko Dress and tied a plaid shirt around my waist to add a pop of color to my outfit. Some would call this outfit the tomboy look, but I’ve paired it with peep toed booties for a sassier look. Trade out those booties for a pair of Converse to rock the Tomboy look!

Top this Piko Dress off with a hat, a long necklace, and booties for a simple look that everyone will love.Army Green Piko Dress

Cutoff Obsessed

Denim cutoffs are fundamental during the warmer months of summer and for good reason too! No matter what your personal style, this summer wardrobe essential is versatile enough to go from casual to chic in minutes.

I’m a HUGE fan of cutoffs, so much so that I have a whole drawer solely dedicated to my collection of both branded, vintage and DIY denim shorts. When I’m not dressed for work, I’m mixing and matching outfits around my denim cutoffs. Whether paired with fancy tops or preppy tees and boho camis, these classic denim shorts are always my go-to for summer!

I’ve been scouring the Internet for inspiration on how to style my cutoffs this summer, and here are a few of my favorite outfits. Enjoy!

I love how actress, Jamie Chung

mixes up her “look” with an outfit that is the perfect balance of preppy and cool. You can try to recreate her ensemble by pairing your denim cutoffs with a basic tee, and for a classic take on a normally casual look opt for a tailored blazer.

One of my favorite bloggers, Sincerely, Jules knows how to rock cutoffs! I’m obsessed with all of her unique looks…

I have to admit that I’m currently suffering from cutoff inspiration overload, and can’t wait to slip into to my favorite denim shorts ASAP! Is it 5pm yet?  Unfortunately, it is not.

We Love Made in USA

It’s been a major topic of discussion for years, and is positioning itself as a mainstream trend… We’re talking about domestically produced goods, and the impact that they’re currently having on the American society.

Have you ever taken the time to sift through your wardrobe and really look at what your garment tags say?  I recently took the time to do just go through my own closet (spring cleaning) and my biggest discovery was that a majority of my clothing was produced overseas.  Seriously, take the time to do this, you will be surprised at what you discover.

Not saying that outsourcing is bad, there are obvious reasons why companies decide to do this. I do believe that the idea behind buying Made in USA products is proving itself to not be just another passing fad. It’s now a media trend.

usaadpt2

Come on, it’s considered down right American to provide Made in USA merchandise, and we’re totally on it! The Glik’s buying team has found several LA based brands that produce their apparel directly on American soil, and we’re providing a diverse selection of goods for you!
