What to Wear on a Fall Date

header

Oh the crisp, cool weather has finally arrived. That means it’s finally an appropriate time to bring out all things autumn and start thinking about those fun fall date ideas! Whether you’re going to grab coffee and donuts, go pumpkin picking and get lost in the corn maze, visit a haunted house, or attend a football game, your outfit has got to be ON POINT. So, guys and gals, we are here to give you a lead on what to wear for any of these occasions!

////Let’s start with the ladies…

Fall weather means light (or in some cases heavy) layers and cozy fabrics.  We have been receiving SO many cute and comfortable (and affordable!) sweaters lately, that it is so hard to just choose one or two.  With styles from brands like Wishlist, Lovestitch, Elan, and Miracle, you’ll be sure to find a few that fit what you’re searching for! With sweater trends being so big right now, you may be feeling a little overwhelmed. THAT’S NORMAL.

Our favorites right now are buttery soft cardigans and light thermal shirts.  The cardigans are great to wear over leggings and fashion sneakers by pairing with your favorite graphic tee underneath OR dress it up by wearing a bodysuit, your Kancan denim jeans, and heeled booties! Thermal shirts are all the rave right now, so if you don’t already have one you definitely need to purchase yourself one right now! Waffle knit thermal shirts are a great basic that give a little more edge with the textured fabric.  The best part about our button down thermal shirt from Wishlist right now is that you can also wear it as a cardigan, SCORE!

When it comes to shoes and accessories, autumn is when it is time to shine.  The key is to find the most versatile, and comfortable, pair of boots or booties that will look fabulous with all of the sweaters you’re about to buy. 😉 And, you’re in luck because the shoe styles just keep rolling in and we are so in love with everything we have in stock right now! Depending on which type of date (day or night) you’re adventuring on, complete your look with accessories! Don’t be afraid to mix and match bralettes, beanies, scarves, and jewelry!

////And for the fellas…

Guys, we have to apologize to you for a sec. Every girl will tell you that, “guys have it easy when it comes to fashion!” Although that may be partially true, you men have a lot of expectations to live up to, especially when it comes to fall style! We are here to tell you exactly what to wear (so you aren’t panicking about what to wear 10 minutes before you have to pick up your date).

Invest in a few quality, flannel, button down shirts. These will soon be your favorite clothing item (besides that beloved pair of gym shorts you’ve had for years). If it’s chilly outside, layer up with a fashionable vest or sweater! You will receive style points, we promise. A nice, well fitting pair of denim will go a long way.  Check out the many denim jean styles we have for men from 1897 Denim, Silver Jeans, and Axel Jeans! Complete the look with a nice pair of brown boots, a leather belt, and a watch, and you’re ready to enjoy your date with confidence!

Outfit #3:

This third look can be styled in different ways to bring out your own style! Piko dresses are so comfortable, that you will NEED one in every color and style! They are super flattering on all body types and can be worn year round! They’re also a great layering piece.  Throw on a flannel or cardigan sweater over the top, or wear some tights underneath if you get chilly! To bring out your bold side, grab a pair of these metallic booties! They are neutral enough to wear on repeat, yet the subtle metallic shine steps your look up a notch. Since the dress itself is so simple, this leaves an open palette for you to style and accessorize! We went the simple route with a long, dainty necklace and our favorite lace bralette.

How does Patagonia Fit?

how to take better travel photos

Patagonia is an awesome brand that makes clothes that will last a number of years all while trying to reduce their environmental impact.  It makes sense to invest in a piece that will fit you as well as their products will last. Have you been looking at making a Patagonia purchase and you’ve been trying to figure out what size would look best on you? Then keep reading!

While there are many different styles of Patagonia (ex: Los Gatos vest, Synchilla Pullover, Better Sweater, etc) there is only 4 different types of fit for these garments. The four fits are; formfitting, slim fit, regular fit, and relaxed fit. From these four categories we can begin to really figure out which size is the best for you.

(photo credit to Patagonia.com)
(photo cred to Patagonia.com)

Form Fit: The garment should hug your body. These are ideal fit for base layer pieces.

Slim Fit: Should show off your body type but with enough room that you could throw a base layer underneath comfortably.

Regular Fit: This should fit a little looser. You should have enough room under these types of styles to wear a heavier base layer comfortably.

Relaxed Fit: With this style of fit you should have a lot of room and should be able to layer quite a bit under these garments.

Women’s Sizing Information

  Numeric Chest Waist Hip
X-Small 0 32 25.5 34.5
X-Small 2 33 26.5 35.5
Small 4 34 27.5 36.5
Small 6 35 28.5 37.5
Medium 8 36 29.5 38.5
Medium 10 37 30.5 39.5
Large 12 38.5 32 41
Large 14 40 33.5 42.5
X-Large 16 42 35.5 44.5

Most of our Patagonia that we carry at Glik’s is going to be either regular or slim fit. For the most true to size fit for those pieces you should try to order the size that typically works best for you. If you are confused about what your true size may be, refer to the chart above. You can take your own chest, waist, and hip measurements to see what size would be best!

In the photos below you can see our model wearing a size small and a size medium of the Slim Fit ¼ Better Sweater Fleece Pullover. If you are wanting more of a looser fit on items that are label as Slim Fit, try sizing up for more of that Regular Fit. But on her true size (small)  the garment is a little form fitting but still loose enough that she could add layers underneath.

how do I know what size patagonia I need?And with the Regular fit style photos you can see our model wearing a small and a medium of the Regular Fit Women’s Lightweight Better Sweater Marsupial Fleece Pullover. These also fit true to size with more room to add some layers slightly heavier base layers underneath for chilly winter time adventures.

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!

Cozy Cardigans Make the World Go ‘Round

Cozy Cardigans Make the World Go ‘Round


This topic comes around year after year, but we just cannot get enough of it! Cozy cardigans literally make the world go ‘round. They are the perfect item of clothing to throw on and go when you’re in a rush, but also a great piece to dress up for a night out while still remaining warm and comfortable! We have already been receiving new styles and returning favorites of cardigans at www.gliks.com, and we cannot wait to see what we will continue to receive throughout fall and winter!

Cardigans are basically a fashionable blanket, so you really can’t go wrong with them.  When transitioning from summer to fall, we recommend throwing on a cardigan over your favorite summer dresses! It is such a versatile look, you can mix and match with all of your cardis and dresses.  Also, when the temperature really starts to drop, cardigans are a great layering piece. Throw a cozy cardigan over your favorite graphic tee and flannel button up, a pair of ripped denim jeans, and ankle booties and you are set for whatever comes your way!

Now, we know you’re probably thinking, “tell me something I don’t already know.”  Well, what you don’t know is just how hard it’ll be to decide on just ONE cardigan to wear for the crisp, cool air that comes with the changing of seasons. With different lengths, fabrics, and colors, you’ll want to wear a cardigan just about every day.  Which means, you’ll have to keep hitting up your local (or online!) Glik’s to snag one of the latest styles we get in. Check out our favorite cardigans below and see how we love to style them daily on Glik’s Official Instagram! Happy shopping 🙂

I love these next couple weeks that we are about to have. The weather is perfect, the fall activities are perfect, and the outfits are perfect.

When I think fall, I think crisp cool days just enjoying being outside, walking around with a cozy cardigan and those perfect shoes that tie it all together.

If you read the Back to School Styles blog, you know that when getting yourself prepared for the fall weather, booties really are a quintessential part of one’s autumnal wardrobe. Booties are one of the first steps for transitioning into your fall and winter wardrobe. Some shoe styles that are really trending right now are low stacked heels, perforated details, peep toes, and western styles.

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.
