Women’s Summer Preview


1. Crop Tops & Denim Skirts

The dynamic duo for summer. There are so many styles of crop tops and denim skirts that there are endless possibilities and combinations.  Wear a knit crop top and sandals for a casual day look and change into a cropped blouse and heels for a night out! If you decide not to wear them together for a full look, crop tops and denim skirts definitely need to be in your summer wardrobe regardless.

2. Wrap Tops & Dresses

You can find us in this look allllll summer long! Just look how fun and flirty these are! The wrap style silhouette is adjustable and super flattering, and it adds a bit of feminine flare to your look without going overboard. Ruffles are also super cute touch to these styles. From tops, rompers, and mini or maxi dresses, you will continue to see the wrap style everywhere.

3. High Waist Shorts

We never want the high rise trend to end. From denim shorts to linen shorts, solids to prints, we want them all! Since the shorts sit high above your hips, they are comfy, flattering, and elongate your legs. Winner! Dress these shorts up with a printed blouse, or dress them casual with a basic tank or tee.

4. Espadrilles & Flatforms

Let your toes be free! Espadrilles and flatforms are out in full force this summer and we couldn’t be more into it. Flatforms are super comfortable, but are also versatile and add height to your look! Trust us when we say you can’t have too many pairs of neutral slides and platforms to rotate within your summer wardrobe.

1. Basic Tees & Flat Front Shorts

Guys, now is the time to stock up on basic and graphic tees.  Basic tshirts are such a great investment since you can literally wear them year round! Plus, you can’t go wrong with a basic striped tee and flat front shorts look.

2. Novelty Shirts & Volley SHorts

If you are anything but basic, you guys need to grab yourself a novelty print shirt (or two) for summer. Wild and bold prints are so fun for summer while the tailored button up shirt design dresses up the look a bit.  Pair them with some comfy volley shorts and your favorite flip flops and your summer uniform is complete.

3. Trucker Hats

Trucker hats are also on trend for summer! (And year-round in our eyes) With so many brands and styles to choose from, Glik’s has got your man covered. Get rid of that dirty old baseball cap this summer and buy a nice, clean trucker hat to complete your casual looks.

Sizzling Summer | What’s In Your Beach Bag?

Summer is in full force, and I am ready to hit the beach! Aren’t you? I’ve got my beach bag packed, and I’m ready to go.

The Beach Bag

The #1 beach essential is a great bag, so grab your largest tote, ladies! The bigger the bag, the more essentials you can take with you. My beach bag has all of my go-to items for some fun in the sun, plus more. My handmade straw tote is perfect for the beach because I can shake the pesky sand out of it once I am done.

Beach Towel

Don’t forget your beach towel! Remember, the bigger the towel the better. You want to make sure your beach towel provides enough room for you and your essentials, so sand doesn’t get on your most valuable items.

Flip Flops

Flips Flops are a definite must-have for the beach. The sand can be very hot and you’ll want to protect your feet. Also, you never know what could be in the sand. You want to avoid any cuts and bruises as much as possible.

Denim Shorts

Shorts are always nice to have on the beach. When you’re done lying out and it’s time to run to the hotel, just slip on your favorite denim cutoffs.

Hat

Fedoras and floppy hats are always nice to have with you on the beach. Blocking those harmful UV rays from your face is always important.

Sunglasses

Show off your personality with your favorite sunglasses. Sunglasses are the perfect accessory for the beach because not only do they complement every swim suit, they also protect your eyes from the sun.

Sunscreen

My favorite sunscreen to use is Sun Bum. They have multiple products that protect your skin and hair from the harsh sun and they smell amazing! Being sunburned is the worst, so I would use at least a 50+ SPF to avoid getting burnt.

Entertainment

Don’t forget to grab your favorite magazines when lying out! I never get bored with my trusty People and Marie Claire magazines to catch up on the celebrity drama and get the scoop on the latest fashion trends! Music is a very important part of a great beach experience too. I know my cellphone has all my favorite music on it, so all I have to do is pack my headphones to jam out on the beach. Cellphones also take great photos. Be sure to capture all the fun with your family and friends to share on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Make sure you stay hydrated while hanging out on the beach all day! Drink plenty of water and make sure you avoid dehydration.

Snacks

Don’t let hunger ruin your good time! Bring a protein bar or fruit with you to the beach as a healthy snack.

Sizzling Summer | What’s In Your Beach Bag?

Da Da Da Denim {Shorts}

Okay people, it’s official. The last day of winter was March 19th. Meaning spring is in full swing giving us longer days, warmer weather and (my personal fave) SUN!

Oh yes, I’m telling the truth people! The sun is a remedy for all our winter woes; it encourages good moods, less layers and showing some skin.

My friends Silver Jeans Co., LA Idol, Miss Me and I have put our style caps on, thought really, really, really hard and came up with the perfect idea for showing some stylish skin this summer! Can you guess what that idea is? Denim shorts!

That’s right, cut-off, frayed, cuffed, destructed, dark wash, medium wash, light wash and bling denim shorts. So many great styles to choose from and each with it’s own attitude. It’s music to my ears.

Silver Jeans Co. is rocking the denim world with body conscious fits for different silhouettes. Have a little shape to your derriere? A high rise, relaxed fit like the Suki denim short is a perfect fit. Not so curvy, but want people to know you have a shape? The Marti or McKenzie denim short has a low-rise, straight fit that will highlight all your best features!

You’ve been a fan of LA Idol’s thick stitch embroidery, unique wash values and most of all bling back pocket detailing. This summer fall for the cut-off raw hem of the LA Idol Flag Pocket Jean Short or the blinged-out LA Idol Flap Pocket Fringe Shorts.

Are you a girl with multi-dimensional style, who’s eager to make your fashion mark?  Miss me jeans knows who you are and have no trouble delivering you the style that you expect from their jeans but in a denim short.

Miss Me Trouser Short

Miss Me Wings Short

Machine Jeans attention to specialty wash value, finish and unique destructed looks has made it a leading brand choice among young fashionistas everywhere with a hip sense of style. Machine Jeans denim shorts are proving to be just as fabulous for this summer season.

So, embrace the sun and enjoy baring some skin. Be sure to stop by any of your local Glik’s store locations or check us out online at gliks.com for all of you summer denim needs!
