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!

Now that it is officially April, Spring is in full throttle with Summer right around the corner (fingers crossed!). This being said, we wanted to talk about our favorite trends of the season! These are some of our top picks from Glik’s and we think you need to add them all to your closet (if you haven’t already).

Dresses, and rompers, and jumpsuits.. Oh my!

So many new arrivals have been hitting in stores and online and it is SO hard to narrow them down.  However, basics, stripes, and floral prints seem to be the name of the game. Three of our new favorite dresses are the Amuse Society Clothing Bohemian Rhapsody Maxi Dress, the Love Stitch Clothing Denim Stripe Dress, and the Wild Honey Palm Print Dress! These scream summer and are super fun pieces for your next adventure!

Rompers and jumpsuits have also been our go-to this Spring. They are super comfy and versatile, so they are easy to just slip on and go! You can dress them down with sandals or sneakers ,or dress them up with a pair of your favorite heels or wedges! Some of our new favorites are the Anama Clothing Twist Front Jumper, the Elan Strappy Surplice Jumper, and the Everly Clothing Peplum Windowpane Romper! With the simple designs and solid colors, these pieces are great to add your own twist with unique accessories!

jumpers

Slide into the season…

You can never have too many pairs of shoes; they are just a continuous way of life. This season, we are focusing on mules and flatflorm slides! They are classy, cute, versatile, and elevate your favorite looks! Qupid Shoes have multiple mules and slides to choose from, and we love everything they throw our way! With simple designs and neutral coloring, they offer flats and heels so you are destined to find the pair that suits you.  Some of our favorites include the Mia Shoes Saige Banded Platform Sandals, the Qupid Shoes Jaden Ruched Mules, the Report Shoes Ryder Heeled Mules, the Soda Shoes Coxy Cross Slides, and the NYLA Shoes Thing 1 Flatform Sandals.  (See, we told you shoes are hard to narrow down!)

Add On Accessories!

Accessories have also become a huge focus in trending fashion.  Pieces that are neutral and versatile seem to be what all the talk is about! Bralettes are still a completely necessary and trending piece for your year round wardrobe. We know we always talk about them, but that’s just how important we think they are! Another new item we recently received are Teleties! These hair ties are so fashionable and can be worn as bracelets when they are not being used for a pain- and kink-free ponytail.  And since you will need a stylish bag to hall of your daily necessities around in, a straw bag is just what you need for the season! We received this straw handbag from Caroline Hill and immediately got heart eyes! (Hint Hint: Your closet needs this bag too.)

We hope you enjoy our favorite trends from the season just us much as we do! Stay tuned for new arrivals each week 🙂 Or, shop these trends now at gliks.com!

Our Favorite Trends of the Season

The Print of the Season: Floral Print

Just because its fall doesn’t mean you can’t wear anything with a floral print.  Floral is a print that can be worn year round.  Some of our favorite tops and dresses this fall feature this print.

Floral Print Tops 

This fashion top by Lime N Chili is a must have this season. This shirt hits on major trends with its cold shoulder cut outs, floral print and keyhole neckline. We’ve paired this top with Kancan skinny jeans and a pair of black booties. To top off this adorable outfit, we added a few of our favorite Alex and Ani bangles and a Kendra Scott necklace.Floral Print Top

Floral Print Jackets

Add a pop of color to your favorite basic by layering a floral jacket with your outfit. Everly Clothing came out with this Floral Bomber Jacket that everyone in the office is drooling over! We’ve paired this jacket with one of our new criss cross Piko tops, Kancan jeans and black booties. Keeping the classy look of this outfit, we added a black floppy hat.everly-bomber-jacket

Floral Print Dresses

Continuing the floral print trend, this Blu Pepper Lace Up Dress will give you an effortless chic look that everyone will love!  The autumn color tone that this dress features makes it perfect for this time of the year! We’ve paired this dress with our over the knee boots and a floppy hat.10-21-15-1-of-1

You won’t want to miss out on this trend! Whether it’s on a fashion top, jacket or a dress it will be a must have item to add to your fall or winter wardrobe this year.

What to Wear on Valentine’s Day: Date Night

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and if you’re lucky, your significant other has already made plans for the two of you to celebrate this romantic holiday. Now that your plans are set, I bet you’re wondering what to wear. Never fear, I’ve got three Valentine’s Day outfits that will impress far beyond February 14th.

Everly Clothing Mock Neck Dress

valentines-day-outfit

This sleeveless shift dress from Everly is guaranteed to help you steal his heart. I love this dress because it is ultra feminine and easy to accessorize.  Did I mention this dress is fully lined? For a complete look, pair this Everly dress with gold accessories, a killer pair of heels, and a glossy lip.  Try the Marc Jacobs Enamored Hi-Shine Gloss Lip Lacquer Lipgloss in Moonglow.  It’s the perfect soft pink nude color.

Elan Clothing Floral Print Dress with Bell Sleeves

valentines-day-outfit

Hands down, this Elan Clothing dress is my favorite! The floral pattern and color combination of this dress are romantic without looking overly festive.  The sleeves are unlined, but the body of the dress is fully lined so you won’t need to fuss with a slip.  With a flattering A-line silhouette, this Elan dress is a solid option for every body type.  Pair this floral dress with a great pair of wedges, a statement necklace and mauve lip.  Try the Tarteist Lip Paint by Tarte in Fomo.

Pink so not your color? Try this Valentine’s Day outfit!

Elan Clothing Black Dress with Crochet Detail Sleeves

valentines-day-outfit

If you’re so not into wearing red or pink clothes this Valentine’s Day, you can always opt for my go-to color:  black.  This dress, also by Elan Clothing, is a great option to wear out with your S.O. without feeling like a walking advertisement for the holiday.  It has a slight high-low hemline and long bell sleeves with crochet detail.  This dress is unlined so dress accordingly underneath 😉 Style this number with gold accessories and a wedge sandal. Add a pop of color on your lips with Studded Kiss Lipstick by Kat Von D in Lullaby.

Have a great Valentine’s Day ❤

What to Wear on Valentine’s Day: Date Night

Cowgirl Boots | Give a Girl the Right Boots and She Will Conquer the World

Cowgirl BootsWhen I saw the sign that said “Give a girl the right boots and she will conquer the world” I instantly thought of my cowgirl boots. When I put my cowgirl boots on it’s like the whole world changes. They make me feel confident in myself, and I literally feel like I could conquer the world! What better way to wear cowgirl boots than to a country concert, here are three looks that I love! 
Cowgirl Boots

I love wearing my cowgirl boots to country concerts and festivals! I put on my new outfit, curl my hair and fix my make-up to go see my favorite country artist perform. The one thing I love most about my cowgirl boots is that they match almost everything in my closet, from dresses and rompers to denim shorts and skinny jeans. A denim jacket or vest always pairs nicely with cowgirl boots on those chilly fall nights.

The Original Country Girl
silver jeans for women, womens silver jeans, silver jeans womens

You can find the original country girl wearing these Volatile Raspy Western Boots with a Silver Jeans vest. I paired this festive Amuse Society Clothing romper with these boots giving it the western chic look. Top off this outfit with a beautiful statement necklace and a fun fringe cross-body purse. This outfit will leave you dancing all night long!

The Classy Country Girl

Classy Cowgirl Boots

You can find the classy country girl wearing these De Blossom Collection Western Boots with a floral dress. This floral dress is made by one of my favorite brands, Everly Clothing. For a sassy but classy look pair pearls with your floral dress. This outfit would be perfect for a meet and greet session with your favorite artist!

The Fearless Country Girl

Cowgirl Boots

You can find the fearless country girl wearing these Soda Victory Western Booties with a pair of blinged out Miss Me Jean shorts. My favorite basics are the Pikos. I layered a plain white Piko crop top tank with a bandeau under it. Be fearless by tying your tank in a knot and revealing your midriff. Show off your personality by wearing your favorite necklace with this outfit. And don’t forget your sunglasses to protect your eyes while waiting for the country shows to start!

Everly Clothing: Styles for Every Body

Everly dress

Everly Clothing’s classic style appeals to such a broad variety of women because their fashion line is right on point with contemporary and cutting edge trends. Everly offers an assortment of silhouettes to fit most body types. So whether you are looking for a fashionable top for everyday wear or a special occasion outfit, Everly Clothing may be just what you need.

The A-Line Dress

everly a-line dress

The A-line dress is commonly referred to these days as the fit-and-flare dress. This means that the dress is fitted from the shoulder to the hip and then widens, or flares, to the hem. Everly Clothing has created some amazing A-line dresses in very elaborate prints. Both of these Everly dresses are shown in vibrant hues that are great for the spring and summer months. The dress on the left is detailed with luscious orange and yellow flowers against a blue and white sky-like background. The Everly dress on the right displays a color-blasted print of pink, yellow, and teal, in Van Gogh-esque brush strokes. The silhouettes of these dresses combined with the fantastic prints are flattering on most body types and are appropriate to wear on a variety of occasions.

The Shift Dress

everly shift dress

everly shift dress

Everly Clothing has designed some flawless shift dresses this season. The silhouette of a shift dress is meant to hang straight down from the shoulder. The most flattering fit of a shift dress should just skim your body without being too clingy. The shift dress can be flattering on most body types depending on how it is styled. If you try on a shift dress and find you are looking frumpy, try throwing on a belt to accentuate your curves.  If you are in love with the Aztec trend like we are, you will love the Everly Aztec print dress. If simple and classic is more your style, the dress on the left is perfect for you. It features a contrasting pop of color on the zipper down the back to add some drama.

The Everly Crop Top and Skirt Set

everly crop top and skirt set

Crop tops and skirt sets are so hot this season!  If you follow the hottest trends and stay in tune with the latest high fashion, you will love these sets! Everly Clothing uses the best fabric to make these sets drape amazingly on your body. The hot pink Everly matching skirt and crop top are made from a beautiful floral lace giving it that ultra feminine look. The white Everly set consists of a white crepe crop top with a matching high-waisted crepe maxi skirt. Both sets can be worn together or separately for extra versatility. Check out how Haley style the Everly White Crop Top and Maxi Set here when she went to the STLFW VIP Bloggers Lounge.

Tulle Skirts

This Everly Clothing tulle skirt can be fashioned in several different ways to fit any personal style. Not just delicate and pretty, this tea-length tulle skirt can be really fun and fierce.Tulle is already a very feminine fabric so it is easy to dress it up for a glamorous and girly look. You can also make your look a little edgier by throwing on a leather jacket or some combat boots. Since the tulle is pleated, this skirt should be worn lower on the hips for a more flattering look.

Everly Tops

Last Thursday, Glik’s had the pleasure to attend Alive Magazine’s Spring 2014 St. Louis Fashion Week VIP Bloggers Lounge at the Scape American Bistro. We joined 16 other fashion and lifestyle vendors and enjoyed talking to 53 of the St. Louis Area’s fashion, lifestyle, and fitness bloggers.

Our fashion line was a HUGE hit! We displayed fashion pieces from Everly Clothing, Joa Clothing, Flying Monkey Jeans, Elan International, BB Dakota, O2 Denim, Ellison, and Made in the USA Fast Fashion from Los Angeles. Pink Pewter headbands, though, were definitely the main attraction at our booth. Thanks to Pink Pewter for donating 5 headbands for us to give away at the event!

Glik’s Be The Buyer Contest

We are so excited to introduce you all to the winners of our recent Be The Buyer contest! This fun contest follows the Glik’s buying team to the L.A. fashion district while they shop all the latest styles of women’s apparel and source new trends.

As a Midwestern fashion brand, when we introduce a new trend we think about it on many different levels; most importantly how our fans and friends view it. Most trends are inspired from our surroundings or imaginations, and can be translated best by mood boards – music, landscapes, places, animals, food, décor, and even people can be present. Think of your favorite fashion brands and some of the ads that they print online or in magazines. They all have a theme and that’s one key segment of the whole trending equation (it’s our favorite part!).

The buying team has so much fun searching for new fashion trends to bring home with them that they decided that it’s time that all of YOU were included in deciding what is HOT or NOT.

Here are the winners of our last Be The Buyer contest.

Amp Up Your Outfit with Aztec Prints for Fall

The bright hues and daring prints of summer have passed on the wayside… but fear not; fall makes a bold move by making plays on summer’s biggest trend: Aztec. So make way for geometrical patterns with bold pops of color this fall because this year’s hottest style for prints is undoubtedly the tribal theme.

This tribal trend has trickled down from the runways to the masses and evolved-somewhat appropriately for fall 2013 to feature Aztec, Navajo and southwestern designs. No matter what the outfit, your look is instantly trendy when wearing a tribal themed print.

 

Key Characteristics.

Bold geometrical shapes, daring color combos, and a mix of various patterns and lines make-up the various tribal prints that dominate the fashion world. We’ve seen this pattern’s colors range from bold neons to dusty earth tones, and depending on your particular taste, Aztec prints can be casually be paired with any solid hue to anchor or even uplift your look.

bbdakotacoat final

BB Dakota Davina Coat BD30700

Scarf: Warm and Cozy Infinity Scarf

The BB Dakota Davina Coat’s neutral earth tone Aztec pattern pairs perfectly with the contrasting burnt sienna hue of this chunky knit infinity scarf. Build on this bohemian traveler theme by wearing a pair of dark denim skinny jeans with under the knee boots.

 

How to Pull It Off.

If you’re new at the tribal trend and want to take the first step towards dominating this new ‘look’, then play it smart and invest in pieces that you’ll actually wear. We know that part of fashion’s allure is the idea of its wearer to be daring, and that’s great. If you know you will wear it, then buy it… but more often than not (speaking from personal experience), not all great ideas are seen through, especially when it comes to clothing. I cannot tell you how many articles of clothing from seasons past that I have adorning my closet with the tags still attached. It’s ridiculous… ask my mother. Actually, don’t.

Aztec Sweater 3917 Final

Earthy Aztec Cardigan / Scarf: here

Classic items for fall like coats, cardigans, sweaters, scarves, and even hats are ideal editions to your closet that promise to see some use. The key to cold weather is layer, layer, layer; add some flair by adding a pop of Aztec print! This lightweight, Aztec print cardigan features black, brown, grey and stone hues that can be mixed-and-matched with any article of clothing in your closet.

 

Dominating Trend.

 Everything about Aztec screams bohemian (another popular trend). Donning natural accessories like leather, mixed metals and natural stones can accentuate the boho-feel of this tribal trend.

aztec sweater final

Aztec Fringe Poncho (similar available here)

Simply adding a floppy brimmed hat, touches of silver accents and boots to this oxblood red, color pop Aztec sweater uplifts whatever look you’re going for. The fringe detail of this sweater would look great paired with dark denim jeans or even a fun and free maxi. Again, layering is fun, as well as key for achieving a fashion forward fall look.

 

Uplifting Your Aztec Look.

Not all tribal patterns have to say classic and neutral. Fashion forward brands like, Everly, an LA based company who produce most of their apparel in the USA, are taking an exotic take on Aztec patterns by adding sequin, metallic, and beading details. This women’s Aztec sequin shift dress from Everly is just asking to be styled with gold accessories and 4 ½ inch platform heels (we’re also big fans of the ankle boot with buckle accenting) for a night out on the town. Just remember to bring along a fun, faux leather jacket to don with the temperature drops and you’re set.

everly aztec

Everly Aztec Sequin Shift Dress / Boots: here

Wearing tribal prints can be fun and demonstrates that you know how to have fun with fashion. The key is to not over-think what you’re wearing. Consider taking a look at all of the great, fashion forward Aztec items that we carry at gliks.com or stopping by one of our 60 Midwest store locations to find the perfect tribal print for your fall 2013 wardrobe.
