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.

Show Me Your Style with Chad Walton

Meet, Chad!

 

He is our official Training Manager/Guru of the special (sales) sauce for Glik’s.  Not only can he cook a mean recipe for high sales, Chad can also add a dash of personality spice and excellent customer service for any fashionable soul who comes into to our stores.  This guy’s personality is totally infectious, and of course, he couldn’t possibly be as cool without killer style instincts (which I personally know he has).

This week he just so happened to be in my neck of the woods (home office) with a group of close manager (wolf pack) friends for the Glik’s Regional Meetings. Regional Meetings is a day chalk full of Holiday fashion treats and hours of creative conversation about our fabulous company.

This year I decided to feature a few of those who represent Glik’s across our vast 9 Midwestern state range, live for the fashions we find, and strive to bring to you only the greatest of experiences.

Me: So Chad, what would you describe your personal style as?

Chad: I would say my personal style is very different from most men. I love going outside of the box and wearing colored pants, vest, and any “Roar” button up that comes my way! Pretty much you could say I am a ROCKSTAR!

 

Me: Nice. So, what would you say is the most dominant item in your closet?

Chad: The most dominant items in my closet would have to be my collection of men’s Rock Revival jeans and “Roar” wovens. Like I said “I am a Rockstar!” ROARRRR

Me: Oh, whoa, wow, I was almost scared by your style for a minute.

Chad: My style is pretty scary… good.

 

Me: Tell me, what can you absolutely not live without this fall/holiday season and why?

Chad: I could not live without my amazing selling staff! They are going to make this Holiday Season one to remember! GO TEAM!!  : )

Me: Well, that’s very sweet.

Chad: Thanks my staff really is GREAT.

 

Me: Last question, there are so many fun trends for this holiday 2012 season. What would you say your favorite trends are right now?

Chad:  I would have to say for men I love wovens of all types: plaid, military, denim, and embroidered embellishments. I’m particularly fond of the new brand 3rd & Army because of their soft fabrics and premium fits. For women I love the whole oversized sweater and Aztec print trend. As far as shoes go, I can’t go long without my TOMS.
