Fall Style: Anniversary Week

College Outfit Essentials

Let me guess, it’s the week or two before school starts, you have all your school supplies and dorm room accessories ready to go but you haven’t even started packing your clothes yet. Because, let’s be honest, who wants to make that decision on what items to bring and what items you have to leave behind.  Well, I am here to make your packing experience a little easier, I have put together a top 10 closest essentials list that I know I wouldn’t be able to live without!

Top 10 Closet Essentials for College

  1. Sweaters
  2. Sweatshirts and pullovers
  3. Your favorite blue jeans
  4. Leggings
  5. A couple of dresses – A sassy, flirty dress and a casual t-shirt dress
  6. At least 5 pairs of shoes – tennis shoes, heels, booties, flats, slides/sandals and rain/winter boots
  7. Hats and Scarves – baseball caps, beanies and blanket scarves.
  8. Bralettes – 1 White, 1 Black and 1 of your favorite color
  9. At Least 7 nice shirts/blouses
  10. A few t-shirts

Dressing for fall is my favorite time of the year! I just love the sweaters and cozy scarves that come along with the colder temperatures. Unfortunately, for packing this makes it harder because usually fall clothing is bulkier and takes up more space. But don’t let that intimidate you, that means you just have to pick out your favorite pieces to take with you.

Piko Sweater Top

I started my list with sweaters, because I love a nice cozy sweater! I would say to pack at least 3 or 4 sweaters, two casual sweaters that matches everything and two statement sweater for going out in. My favorite statement sweater is a lace up sweater.

Sherpa Pullover

My next go item is a sweatshirt. On my lazy days, I just grab my sweatshirt and pair it with my leggings and just bum around campus. You can dress up your sweatshirt and pullover collection by adding a Sherpa pullover, these pullovers will be sure to keep you warm during that nice little walk from your dorm to class.

College Essentials

I know you have to have at least one pair of jeans that you just cannot live without. I know I have at least two. I would pack your favorite jeans and some leggings. You will be living in leggings during class and hanging out in the dorm! They are a must have!

Booties

Don’t forget about your best companions, your shoes. You’ll need at least one pair of tennis shoes and maybe a pair of nude heels that will match everything. Be sure to grab your favorite booties, and some slides or sandals to hang around the dorm in. I would also grab a pair of rain boots or winter boots for those wet and cold days this winter.

Scarves and Hats

When it comes to packing accessories, I would just limit it to hats, scarves and bralettes for the fall semester. Hats will eliminate all bad hair days! Pack at least one baseball cap and a neutral colored beanie. Last fall, my blanket scarf saved me! I would recommend packing at least one or two blanket scarves to keep you warm. My other favorite accessory is a bralette. They layer perfectly under any fashion top or sweater. I would recommend having at least one black and one white lace bralette to help add a little touch to your outfits this fall.

Everly Dress

When it comes to fashion tops and dresses, I wouldn’t pack too many. You will need some for those days that you want to dress up or go out with friends. But, you also want to make sure to leave room in your closet for new items that you will want to buy from the local boutiques near campus.

I know we all have our go to t-shirt that we like to lounge in and it’s okay to bring a few of those with you, but keep in mind that your t-shirt collection will expand during college. There’s always t-shirts being given away on campus and during events.

I hope this has helped you with getting ready for the fall semester and makes your transition into the new dorm less stressful. Just remember, you can always come home and visit during weekends and holidays to grab more clothes!

Trend Alert: Frayed Jeans

Western Bootie
Fray is the New Fringe

The past few seasons the fringe trend has been a huge hit! Adding a twist to the fringe world, they have added fringe denim, which is known as released hem, raw hem, or even frayed jeans.  The frayed hem doesn’t stop at the jeans. We are seeing frayed shorts, skirts and tops too. The released hem trend isn’t just made on a skinny jean either, but also on a flared denim. One of our favorite brands, Flying Monkey, came out with a cropped skinny jean that features a raw hem and are a must have staple piece for this season!

Rules of the Frayed Jeans:

  1. The frayed hem should hit right at or above the ankle.
  2. Wear your raw hem jeans with pointy pumps, strappy sandals, ballet flats, casual sneakers, or ankle boots.
  3. Only wear one or two raw hem peices at a time, too much fraying could be an overkill.

Frayed Jeans

We paired our released hem Flying Monkey Jeans with an Elan Fringe Sweater giving this outfit the double fray look. Keeping up with all of the trends this season, we layered our sweater over a Criss-Cross Neck Tee. And topping off our look, we paired our raw hem jeans with our Volatile Haisley Western Ankle Bootie to show off that frayed hem.

Fall Fashion Finds Under $50

fall fashion under $50

Another season, another chance to vamp up your wardrobe!

With the official beginning of fall coming in a few short weeks, it’s time to find pieces you’ll want to wear all season long. Thankfully, bringing new life to your closet doesn’t mean you have to break the bank. I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite must-have pieces that are all under $50. Feel free to do a little happy dance.

It’s time to bust out the booties! There are two major factors to consider when buying a new pair of ankle boots: color and comfort. Taupe, black, and brown are three colors that you’ll get a ton of wear out of this season and next.

As the temperatures drop, you’ll need a good pair of jeans in your rotation. KanCan Jeans are not only affordable, but they also fit like a dream! At only $39 for most styles, consider adding a pair of mid-rise and low-rise  skinnies to your denim collection.

Nothing says fall fashion like a Piko top! There are so many colors and styles to choose from at Glik’s, but this burgundy tunic is one of my favorites for autumn.

Is it really even fall if you’re not wearing a vest? My all time favorite quilted vests are from Thread and Supply. The quality of these vests is amazing for the price point and the selection of colors makes it impossible to choose just one!

 It’s not all about bundling up this season, especially at the start. I love this olive green dress from Blu Pepper. The lace up neckline is perfectly on-trend, plus it’s a style steal at only $39.

Lastly, accessories are just as important as your outfit itself. My favorites for fall include CC Beanies, a cute plaid scarf, a lace bralette, and a black choker necklace. Any of of theses pieces will instantly elevate your #ootd.

How to Style Boot Socks Two Ways

Boot Socks + Ankle Boots

Typically, when I think of boot socks, I imagine pairing them with classic riding boots. However, I’ve seen a ton of fashion bloggers and Instagram stars wearing a pair scrunched down with ankle boots. So unexpected and so cute! The key to achieving this look is to find a pair of socks that aren’t too thick and can be pushed down a few inches above your boots.

Boot Socks + Riding Boots

For a classic look, boot cuffs also look great with riding boots! The important thing to remember when styling your socks or boot cuffs with taller boots is to choose a pair that is long enough to peek above the top of the boot. This looks best with skinny jeans or leggings!

Thankfully, these adorable accessories are starting to hit gliks.com! If you’re looking for a little something extra to pair with your dresses, skinny jeans, and Piko sweaters this season, we’ve got you covered.

Once you grab a pair (or two), I’d love to hear how you style your boot socks! Are you stepping outside the box and wearing them with ankle boots? Or are you staying perfectly classy and pairing your boot socks with riding boots?

Winning Game Day Outfit Ideas

College football season is now in full swing and admittedly, that means almost to nothing to me. I couldn’t tell you the difference between a first down and a field goal, but I do appreciate all the game day fashions (ohhh and the tailgating food)! However, I know some of you ladies out there take your game day attire just as seriously as the guys take the games, so I’ve put together a little outfit inspiration to make sure you are game day ready!

Depending on what school you go to, game day outfits range from t-shirts and jeans to dresses and pearls.

Plaid dress for game day

If you are going to take a dressier approach, it’s always fun to find a dress in your school colors. I’m loving this plaid Love Stitch Clothing shirt dress paired with a Thread and Supply quilted vest. Not only do these pieces come together for an adorable game day outfit, but you’ll most definitely be able to wear them again.

Boots for game day

Now, let’s take a second to appreciate these boots.

Casual game day outfit

If your tailgating style is more relaxed, you can’t go wrong with a fun graphic t-shirt and a plaid scarf. This look is for all of my girls who don’t want to sacrifice their comfort for style, especially when trying to get their grub on before the game.

Lauren James Mizzou shirt

All my laid-back ladies, you can still add some personality to your comfortable game day style. An easy way to do that is rocking embellished denim like these Rock Revival Jeans.

Your footwear choice for the day is just as important as the rest of your outfit. Not only do these fringe boots have personality, but they are also comfy enough to take you from tailgating to the game to the after party.

No matter what school you go to or what your style is, the important thing is to show your support for your school and of course, have fun!

White Jeans: How to Transition into Fall

White Jeans after Labor Day

Everyone says you can’t wear white after Labor Day… but let’s be honest; the fashion police aren’t going to come after you if you do. So don’t be afraid to wear white jeans after Labor Day. Here are a few ways we like to style our white jeans for fall.

Shoes at Glik's

What shoes should I wear with white jeans this fall?

It’s that time of the year again, time to pack up the flip flops and sandals and pull out the boots! If you think it’s too early for boots, you can always wear your Sperry Top-Siders, TOMS or Converse until it is officially boot season!

Booties are always a must have for this transition from summer to fall. Wear black or brown booties with your white jeans to give it a fall look. You won’t regret adding a pair of booties to your boot collection this fall.

Accessories at Glik's

What kind of accessories should I wear with my white jeans this fall?

Scarves are a great piece to add to your outfit! Pair them with a basic and your jeans for a simple but cute look. And you can never go wrong with a statement necklace! Wear a statement necklace with autumn colored Piko tops and jeans for another simple look.
Glik's Outfit

What kind of tops should I wear with my white jeans this fall?

Chambray, Brown, Black, Beige, Olive, and Marsala are all great autumn colors. Piko tops are a must have basic for this fall and will look great. Denim or chambray tops paired with a cardigan or a jacket will make your jeans pop this fall.

Jackets at Glik's

You can never go wrong adding plaid to your white jeans outfit. We are loving the plaid hood and elbow patches on this utility jacket! Get yours today before they sell out, again!
