How to Wear Denim on Denim

how to wear

The fall season is right around the corner and we want to challenge you to try and step out of your fashion comfort zone a little this season! One way to try something new is putting some of your denim pieces together for a bold denim on denim look. Denim on denim, also known as the Canadian Tuxedo, was once seen by a lot of people as a fashion NO, but we see it as a fashion YES, YOU SHOULD BE WEARING DENIM ON DENIM and here is how…

keep darker denim on bottom

Try and keep your darker denim on bottom. Also keeping the denim more well fitted for you body type will be the most flattering way to rock the double denim trend! 


DENIM ON DENIM (1)

add some texture

To make sure to keep the denim on denim trend interesting try adding different textured pieces! A great way to get in your textures are to add a snake skin shoe like these or a sherpa lined jean jacket!


2

try a statement shoe & tee

The denim doesn’t have to have all the spotlight! Put on your favorite tee and a bold shoe to try more of a rocker look. Similar washed denim can be a little tricky but with the right shoes and a dark band tee makes this whole outfit look well put together!


3

Add colorful pieces

Denim on denim is basically the same as wearing two neutral pieces together. Be sure to add all your favorite statement pieces to keep you from looking too monochromatic.  A well fitting jean skirt with a lighter washed chambray shirt is the perfect way to show off those bright shoes and accessories!


5 (2)

Throw on more neutrals

Plain and simple, fashion shouldn’t be difficult. Throw on a neutral shoe with a cute bralette and don’t over think it! You can have a trend-setter look with minimal effort when you throw on your double denim with other neutral pieces!


For all these cute adorable denim on denim looks, head over to Gliks.com! And for all the latest style inspiration and to see new arrivals check out Gliks Official on Instagram! What are some other trends you guys are loving right now?

Kancan Jeans: Comfort, Aesthetic, Quality

With a new season comes new clothing.  However, when it comes to Kancan Jeans, we are a firm believer that their denim jeans are a MUST HAVE staple for your year round wardrobe. While some jean companies may claim they focus on comfort, KanCan has built their brand around the comfort, aesthetics and quality of their denim jeans. Since they are super stretchy, soft and comfortable, KanCan Jeans form to your body. They are flattering from both the front and the back because they are designed with a higher rise than most junior’s denim brands, keeping everything covered no matter how you bend or stretch. Because they are so stretchy and comfortable, KanCan Jeans may fit a bit bigger than other jeans in your closet. Don’t be afraid to try a size down!

Here is their size chart for reference:

Kancan Jeans offer so many styles and washes, that you will always need to add to your denim collection! Not only does Kancan offer their staple skinny jeans, but they also offer overalls, skirts, shorts, and other cuts to suit your needs when you want to switch your look up a bit! As we mentioned before, one of our favorite things about Kancan denim is their comfort and high waist fit.  The high rise jeans sit right above your hips, so they are very flattering on all body types.  This junior’s denim brand prides themselves on “providing versatile denim that is figure flattering to all shapes and being the classic wardrobe staple.”

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.

girls group shot (1 of 1)

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.

How You Need to Be Wearing White Denim This Season

How to wear White Denim

White denim has always been a thing, but if you have ever been wary of the white denim trend, it’s time to face your fears! LUCKILY, there are so many styles or ways you can wear white denim, so you don’t have to just do the classic white skinny jean (but classics, are classics for a reason). You can mix up the white denim trend and try a denim skirt, or a pair of shortalls, or a trendy skort.

White denim can either be a statement piece for your outfit or it can be a way to showcase your favorite piece of clothing. This must have item makes any outfit look clean and fresh, which is perfect for summer, but you better believe that these can also roll you into fall (but that’s a blog post for another day.) Here are 4 ways you need to try wearing your white denim this season.

Monochromatic White Denim trend

Monochromatic: White denim with a white top, is definitely the most daring of all the white denim trends. But to make it easier, just remember that you probably also loved the all black wardrobe trend and this is basically the same thing but the more summer friendly version of the two (aka less likely to absorb all those warm little sun rays). This look is so clean and simple, without a doubt it will make you look sophisticated and put together.

White Denim with a Pop of Color

A Pop of Color: Basically, the same concept as the monochromatic look, but throw some of your favorite pieces on there to make them really stand out. Your outfit becomes the canvas and you get to showcase whatever trendy item you wanna show off! I recommend, a jean jacket or any other of your favorite dressier outerwear pieces. If it’s too hot for a jacket, throw on some statement earrings, a daring shoe choice, or a colorful bag. You can even opt for a more muted pop of color with a simple beige or a light blue.

Statement tops with white jeans

A Statement Top: A lot of jeans can take away from a beautiful statement top, but with a pair of white jeans you are making sure that the shirt that “you just need to have or you would die” is the center of attention!  A pair of white jeans also makes that shirt that otherwise might have been borderline casual, an office ready look! Then you can throw on a neutral shoe to accent the top more, or grab a statement shoe choice to compliment your blouse.

Casual outfit with white jean

Casual: A tee shirt and a pair of jeans, is always a good idea. AGAIN, (sorry I sound like a broken record over here) white denim elevates your jean and tee style! Classic denim shorts, for example, tend to be casual style piece, but white denim shorts look mature and classy with whatever you wear them with! So whether you throw on a basic graphic tee or a solid colored tank, you cannot go wrong with a basic tee and some white denim.

White denim is definitely a great option if you want to raise the denim bar. All it takes is one simple piece of denim to help you create very different styles. For more creative ideas on how to wear white denim be sure to check out the Glik’s Official Instagram, where we post outfit ideas and new arrivals! And to shop the best white jean pieces be sure to head over to Gliks.com. Tell us in the comments how you like to style your white denim!

When to Wear Mules

When to Wear Mules (5)Mules have been a popular trend for a minute now and I just can’t get enough of them lately. This is definitely one shoe trend you don’t want to miss out on. To make sure you don’t miss any styling opportunity, here are 5 times that you can be putting your best mule wearing foot forward and rocking one of our favorite shoe trends.

When You Are Out To Enjoy The Day…When to Wear MulesHeeled mules literally elevate your style. Dresses and a simple laser cut mule go perfectly together for days out exploring the city and trying out that new totally instagramable coffee shop. I love a good pair of heeled mules with a midi dress, or actually any dress ever, you absolutely can’t go wrong with a pair of heeled mules and a dress.

When You Have Things To Get Done…When to Wear Mules (1)When I run errands, I know there is a 90% possibility that I will run into someone that I kind-of-sorta-know but definitely have to say hi to, when that happens I like to look somewhat presentable. Mules are ideal to throw on with your distressed jeans and your favorite comfy shirt. With this outfit combination you can fool everyone into thinking you’re the kind of girl who is fashionable and has time to buy a gallon of milk. Your new secret is safe here.

When You Are Out On The Town…When to Wear Mules (2)Its girls night and you have the perfect outfit and now you’ll have the perfect pair of shoes to match. Mules are so durable and totally dance friendly with a nice stacked heel. So go ahead and grab that romper and mules and be prepared to outshine your friends in all the group pictures tonight, girl.

When You Mean Business…When to Wear Mules (3)When you are at work its essential to have a shoe that keeps you comfy till 5pm rolls around. Mules are necessary for work because of their no back design. You won’t ever get that restrained feeling that other shoes tend to have. Again another simple put together look, just grab your basic black pants, a structured top, and you’re out the door on the way to grab your coffee.  You’ll be contently comfy the whole day at work, so you can focus on looking cute, getting your work done, and looking cute.

When You Would Rather Be On Vacation…

When to Wear Mules (4)One of the cool things about the mule shoe is that they can be a casual shoe as well. Throw them on with your beach lounge pants and instantly be the beach boho babe you know you were meant to be!

In case you need more time to mull over the mule trend, be sure to check out @gliksofficial on Instagram for all the outfit inspo you could possible ever want/need! And to shop all these styles and more check out gliks.com!

How to Take Jeans from Day to Night

header

If you are anything like us, you have a busy schedule day in and day out.  Whether it is school, work, social commitments, or what-have-you, it can be hard to find those staple pieces that will carry you throughout the day in style (and through the seasons).

This being said, today’s post is all about how you can take jeans from day to night! Specifically, the KanCan Jeans Blown Out Distressed Denim.  Can we talk about the blown out detail at the knee for a sec? LOVE. Busted knee denim is so in right now and will totally transform your look. You wouldn’t at first think that a huge hole in the knee of your pants would be so chic and trendy, but in today’s fashion world you can never be surprised! If blown out or distressed denim isn’t for you, then you will be sure to find a different pair of KanCan Jeans that will suit your needs! We swear by this denim.  They are so comfy and great quality that you will never want to buy another brand of denim again.

Wearing a pair of jeans from a day at work to a night out is so simple.  All it takes is a quick change of shoes and top and you are good to go! Denim is really on the up and up in the fashion world, and it is becoming SO much more acceptable for different occasions. Below we gave you three options on how to wear the KanCan Blown Out Knee Denim from casual to dressy.

{Casual}

Y casual 1

This look is perfect to wear while running morning errands or attending class. This windbreaker pullover is stylish yet comfortable. It gives off a super relaxed vibe, and pairing it with a pair of Converse or fashion sneakers brings it all together.

{Semi-Casual}

Y semi casual

If you have a commitment that involves dressing up a little bit without looking too fancy, then this outfit is for you.  The blown out denim still gives off a casual vibe, but layering the tops steps it up a notch.  We love pairing our denim with moto or anorak jackets. It is great for this time of the year when you aren’t quite sure what the temperature is going to be like all day! Wear this look with short booties or flats and you are ready to go brunching with the gals!

{Dressy}

Y dressy

Don’t have time to go home and fully change after work before dinner with the girls? Keep on your jeans and slip on a pair of strappy heels! This smocked crop top is also super trendy and could be paired with a denim jacket if you are brave enough to rock denim on denim 🙂 Crop tops not your style? Wear this look with your favorite peplum or wrap blouse from work, throw on some statement jewelry, and you are ready to hit the town.

How to Create the Perfect Spring Capsule Wardrobe

How to make the perfect capsule wardrobe (1)

Don’t know what a capsule wardrobe is? Fundamentally, it is a minimalist approach to the things you keep in your closet. It’s trying to get more neutrals in your closet and less of those pieces that you can never seem to match with anything, besides that one skirt that you don’t even like that much. It will also help you save a little time and money by helping you figure out what you need to buy and skipping all the things that don’t really have a place for in your closet. At Gliks we have some items that are on trend, but are also basic essentials for the entirety of the spring season.

Capsule Wardrobe

To help you have the best spring capsule wardrobe possible, we found the 16 items that we think your closet cannot go without! For a little consistency we stuck to a color palette of about four different colors in various shades. However, many of these clothing items we listed come in a variety of colors and styles, so this capsule wardrobe can totally be adapted to fit your personal taste!

SHOP THE TOPCapsule Wardrobe (8)

Fate Clothing Off the Shoulder Striped Top | Jack By BB Dakota Delle Flare Sleeve Top | Elan Clothing Fray Hem Button Front Top

There are four trends that are going to be very pronounced in 2018. These trends are off the shoulder, stripes, flare sleeves, and button ups. We found 3 shirts that incorporate all these trends, in a subtle but chic way. These shirts are lightweight so they will be perfect for warm days, or you can layer over them with a warmer jacket for the colder days.

Capsule Wardrobe (9)

Piko Tops V-Neck Short Sleeve Shirt | Lime N Chili Criss Cross Short Sleeve Top

Everyone needs a comfy throw on tee for the days that you do not want to try and put together the perfect outfit ( but in our opinion jeans and a tee is the perfect outfit 🙂 ). Plus, these tees will look great under your overalls, with your denim skirts, or with a denim jacket. We definitely recommend having a tee that has a looser fit and you feel totally comfortable in. You can dress the right basic tee up or keep it casual.

ESSENTIALS IN BOTTOMS

Capsule Wardrobe (3)

KanCan Jeans Flare Highrise | Flying Monkey Jeans Twist-Seam Hem Skinny Jeans | KanCan Jeans Distressed Long Overalls

We are so happy that flare jeans and overalls are making a comeback! These flare jeans by KanCan are highwaisted, making them a comfortable fit for everyday wear and they will pair effortlessly with your shorter cropped tops. Everyone needs a good pair of medium wash denim in their closet. We personally love the twist-hem step hem jeans from Flying Monkey and they have an ankle crop fit, which makes them perfect for showing off your strappy sandals! At Gliks we have an array of overalls to choose from, but black overalls leave you with a neutral base that will naturally match with anything in your closet!

DRESSES ARE A GIRLS BFFCapsule Wardrobe (4)

Piko Dresses Short Sleeve Swing Dress With Pockets Jack By BB Dakota Off the Shoulder Dress | Everly Clothing Striped Midi Dress

One of our favorite things about spring is that it finally is warm enough for dresses. These three dresses incorporate some of those hot trends like off the shoulder, ruffles, and stripes. The Piko dress is a casual dress that will be perfect to throw on whenever you need something simple. The Off the Shoulder dress by BB Dakota has a slightly fancier vibe but its jersey knit fabric makes it a comfortable fit for everyday wear. The striped pattern of the Everly Clothing Striped Midi Dress gives you a fashionable option with the perfect length, stopping just below the knee. The best part of all these dresses is that they can easily be dressed up or down to fit whatever occasion you need.

THE OUTERWEAR

Capsule Wardrobe (7)

Elan Clothing Ruffle Shoulder Denim Jacket | Jack By BB Dakota Laren Vegan Leather Moto Jacket

For colder days, we found the two jackets that you absolutely need. These neutral outerwear options will go over every outfit! We love the ruffle denim jacket by Elan Clothing. It has a shorter fit, so it will look ah-ma-zing over your dresses or overalls. The vegan leather moto jacket by Jack By BB Dakota is made out of the softest faux leather material. We love this lighter colored leather jacket option for spring days and it will be perfect for nights out over your basic tee and ankle length jeans.

THE FOOTWEAR

Capsule Wardrobe (6)

Qupid Shoes Tuxedo Flats with Heel Strap | Outwoods Bork Diagonal Strap Sandals Qupid Shoes Core Perforated Peep Toe Heels

Now for the footwear options for your capsule wardrobe! Here are three pairs of shoes that will pull together all your spring looks. The Tuxedo shoe is an essential to your footwear collection, offering a comfortable footbed and covered vamp ballerina shoe design will look flawless for your everyday ensembles. Strappy sandals are essential to any spring outfit and in the color rose gold it will add a little bling to your looks. The peep toe heel is a fashionable option that will be great for dressing up any of your outfit combinations.

Now all you have to do is mix and match these pieces together to create the perfect spring looks. To shop all these spring capsule wardrobe essentials, head over to Gliks.com!
