Five Looks with One Key Piece: The Love Stitch Button Down

header

As the seasons change, it can be hard to find core pieces in your wardrobe that you are able to style year round.  So, we decided to help you out a bit by showing you FIVE different looks with ONE key piece! The item on topic is the Love Stitch Clothing Striped Chambray Button Down Top.  Button downs and vertical stripes are super trendy and stylish, so combined they make the perfect pair! Keep reading to see how we styled this shirt five different ways! (P.S. In our opinion, we think all of these items should be core pieces in your wardrobe!)

1. Wear Alone with Denim & Sandals

This first outfit is great for those casual spring days and cool summer nights.  Button up this Love Stitch striped top and roll up your sleeves for some laid back vibes.  Every girl needs a durable pair of denim jeans in her closet, so why not opt for a pair of KanCan Jeans? These are the KanCan Jeans Railroad Stripe Ankle Detail in Medium Wash.  Keeping things on the casual route, we thought these Mia Shoes strappy sandals were perfect! The neutral coloring and comfort footbed make these sandals great to wear all day, every day. Depending on your style, finish off the look with a lace bralette and some basic jewelry and you are all set.

2. Wear under Overalls with Heeled Booties.

This next look can also go dressy or casual, depending on your plans! Overalls are totally making a comeback and we are all for it! Pairing the Love Stitch Clothing Striped Chambray Button Down Top underneath these distressed overalls makes for a super chic outfit. We paired the look with a pair of ankle booties from My Delicious Shoes! The vertical stripes and heeled booties elevate your look and give you a taller appearance. To dress down the look, try wearing a pair of Converse sneakers or flat sandals. Since we love the criss cross trend, try unbuttoning the Love Stitch shirt a little, wear this strappy tank top, and unbuckle one of the straps from the overalls!

3. Layer Over Basic Tee with Denim & Mules.

This third look with your key piece item is our favorite! Keeping the striped shirt open gives the look a little edge and enhances your possibilities! Now you are able to show off all of your basic or graphic tees! We paired this look with a criss cross top from Lime N Chili and KanCan jeans. Mules are also super fashionable right now, so the Qupid Shoes Tuxedo Mules just stood out to us! If you are wearing this look while taking a walk around the park or while shopping, change it up by tying your button down shirt around your waist and you’ve got a whole new look.

4. Wear with Denim Skirt & Peep Toe Heels.

5

Now, this look will be able to take you into the night in style.  The neutral, chambray coloring and vertical stripes already dress this look up.  By pairing it with this black denim skirt from KanCan, you’ll be ready for a night out in no time!  Depending on the look you are trying to achieve, roll the sleeves up or down and tuck in the shirt to your skirt. Add some statement earrings and a lace bralette and you’ve got your fourth outfit in the bag.  To dress this look up even more, rock this pair of peep toe heels by Qupid Shoes! The tall chunky heel and elastic vamp are sure to hold up while you are dancing the night away.

5. Layer Under Cardigan with Denim & Boots.

3

This last look is perfect for cold winter or fall days when you still want to be stylish. Start off with your base, a strappy basic tank top.  Then, put on your striped button down top from Love Stitch and button it all the way up or keep it open (whichever you prefer). Lastly, slip on this cozy chunky cardigan from Wishlist. Layers layers layers is the name of the game when it comes to cold weather, so why sacrifice warmth for style? With this look, you can achieve both! End the look with a pair of neutral ankle boots, like these from Qupid Shoes, and you are ready to tackle the day with your head held high.

Ladies, for those of you who are scrambling around trying to decide what to wear to impress your man (or your Galentines), we’ve picked out a few outfits for you!

Dressy & Flirty

everly romper

How darling is this Everly Clothing Plaid Romper?! This just screams class and makes us wish we had every item of clothing in Cher Horowitz’s (cue Clueless reference) closet! This romper has a self-tie design on the front with an encased elastic waistband to define your shape.  The flowy fit and neutral coloring of this outfit makes it super easy to dress up or down! To dress it up for Valentine’s Day, pair this romper with the Qupid Shoes Chamber Woven Peep Toe Heels in Black.

everly purple

Also from Everly, this simple shift dress with bell sleeves makes our hearts happy! The purple pastel color gives your wardrobe that pop of Spring and puts a little pep in your step.  If you’re heading to a fancy dinner or romantic getaway, this dress is for you! Since the design is so simple, it gives you room to put your own twist on how you decide to accessorize! We went ahead and paired the dress with this oh-so-versatile pair of Qupid Shoes Chamber Distressed Strappy Heels in Taupe!

CUTE & Cozy

salmon twist back

This is a completely biased opinion, but we believe EVERY WOMAN needs a twist back sweater in her wardrobe, like this one from Miracle Clothing! It is so elegant and cozy all in one.  The twist back detail takes this chunky knit sweater to the next level.  It is perfect for casual cute evenings with your man, or out to dinner and drinks with your girlfriends! If pink isn’t your color, don’t worry! This sweater comes in multiple colors 🙂  Pair this sweater with a pair of peep toe booties, like these from Qupid Shoes, and your favorite accessories and you’ll be good to go!

pearl cardigan

If you want to kick things up a notch, add some delicate detailed pearls to your outfit!  The long line silhouette, bubble sleeves, and pearl details bring a feminine touch to your overall facade.  Pairing this cardigan with some blown out denim, like these KanCan Jeans, will dress your look down a bit.  The best thing about cozy cardigans is being able to dress them up or down! Depending on the look you are trying to achieve, finish this outfit with a pair of ankle booties or a pair of Converse sneakers!

Laid Back & Casual

Now, if your plan for Valentine’s Day revolves around watching your favorite RomComs (Love Actually and The Proposal, we’re talking to you) and indulging in chocolate covered strawberries with your besties (or if you and your man boycott V-Day) this outfit is for you! This simple color block tee from Vanilla Bay, distressed denim, and Converse is a look that you will wear on repeat each season.  Laid back styles that are also cute and fashionable are what we LIVE for!

sherpa

Does your date night involve the outdoors? Don’t stress over what to wear! Throw on a sherpa pullover and CC Beanie and the rest will follow suit.  This outfit is also a great investment for your cold weather wardrobe! It has all the necessities that you can wear from daytime shopping and lunch to night walks around the park and on the town.  Slip on your favorite pair of over the knee boots or ankle booties and you’ve got your outfit in the bag!

Glik’s Obsession: Plaid Shirts

Beanies

Plaid Shirts With A Graphic Tee

Simply throw your plaid shirt over your favorite graphic tee for a casual but trendy look. We paired our favorite “Just A Small Town Girl’ graphic tee with our red and black buffalo plaid shirt and a pair of distressed black Flying Monkey skinny jeans. Add a beanie to this outfit for a more edgy look.

Plaid Shirts Under A Sweater

Stay warm and cozy this season by layering your plaid shirts under a chunky sweater. Just a little pop of the collar will give this sweater a whole new look. Adding a hat to this outfit will give it a classic look that everyone loves!Tied around waist look

T-Shirt Dress

Plaid Shirts With A Dress

We are loving this 90’s look here at Glik’s! This old school tie around your waist kind of style is coming back! We tied our plaid shirt around our Piko t-shirt dress and paired it with combat boots and boot socks for a simple, but edgy hipster look!

The Queen of Plaids

We spoke with Jamie Stuart, owner and designer for Polly and Esther, on how the brand keeps evolving. “I have been designing Plaid shirts for 18 years. I think that the most important thing is to keep it fresh and new. We are constantly changing and plugging in new colors to make the plaids relevant to today’s fashions and trends. This year, we added the sweater sleeves and hoods to keep the styles and bodies different than just the ordinary plaid shirt. We also added Sherpa in the hood lining! Just wait until next year!”

Glik’s Five Fall Favorites

Five Fall FavoritesHello Autumn! The best season of the year is upon us and I couldn’t be more stoked to bust out my fall wardrobe. Here are my five fall favorites!

Wine Piko Top

Wine is my favorite color this fall and Piko tops are a must have staple piece. Add this color and this top together and you have the perfect fall basic. Dress this fall comfy bamboo top up with a long necklace and as the temperatures drop add a vest to this Piko top.

Long Necklaces

Long necklaces make for great accessory pieces. This neck candy looks great with a scoop neckline and can be adjusted to fit a length that works best for you. Pair a long necklace with a basic top for a classy and simple look.

Tall Riding Boots

Tall riding boots are a must have for fall. They look great with just about anything. Wear them with your skinny jeans and your favorite tops or sweaters for an effortless look.

Distressed Denim

Everyone always makes fun of distressed denim, saying “You paid money for your jeans to look like that?” Well of course we did, because distressed denim is trendy, and we girls love it. And let’s be honest, who wants to sit there and try to cut up their jeans to get the perfect distressed look? Distress denim is perfect for those warm fall days and look great with about any top!

Look by M Shawl Vest

Fall weather can be fickle here in the Midwest, one day it can be 80 degrees and the next day it can be 50 degrees, which makes layering great. One of my favorites this fall is the Look by M Shawl Vest, it is versatile and can be worn as a vest or a scarf.

                           Riding Boots  Long Necklace

Wine Piko tops, long necklaces, tall riding boots, distressed denim, and the Look by M shawl vest are my five fall favorites this year and I hope that you love them just as much as I do!
