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.

Trend Spotting at MAGIC 2016- Women’s and Shoes

Fashion, especially fast fashion, is constantly evolving and changing. Trying to keep up on the latest trends can be more than any one person can handle. That’s where we step in and do the legwork for you so when you walk into a Glik’s, all the latest and greatest fashions are available to you without the guesswork.

One of our main resources for trend spotting is tradeshows. Our buying team recently attended MAGIC, one of the biggest tradeshows of the year. Walking through the different shows at MAGIC is like walking through a gigantic mall, on a Saturday, at noon, when every store is having a sale. Basically, MAGIC is chaos. It is wonderfully crowded with booths full of great fashion and stylish people.

If you want to be in the know on upcoming trends, keep reading.

Shoe Trends:

1. Color is key. 

Earth tones, shades of olive green, and blush are predicted to be major players for Spring 2017. These colorways were available in styles ranging from lace up ballet flats to ankle boots.

2. It’s all in the details.

Cut out details are trending now for fall and this trend shows no sign of slowing down come spring.

3. Say goodbye to the middle man.

While a classic pair of riding boots is still a style staple, ankle boots and over-the-knee boots are the next big thing in footwear. Be on the lookout for over-the-knee boots coming soon to Glik’s!

CLOTHING TRENDS:

3. Slay in (faux) suede.

This fabric is both buttery soft and oh-so-stylish. This combination leaves no doubt that faux suede is a trend to try.

How to Wear a Shirt Tied Around Your Waist

The 90’s called. And they had some great fashion advice! Who knew that part of the grunge trend would be revived in fashion trends we see today? We always hear that fashion repeats itself, and it is obvious that 90’s fashions are coming back in a big way. This summer we saw crop tops, high-waisted shorts, and plaid apparel integrating their way into our wardrobes. One of the hottest 90’s grunge-inspired trends this season is the shirt tied around the waist.

Button-up shirt

Shirt tied around your waist

There are not too many rules when it comes to wearing the around-the-waist shirt wrap. However, we have some tips and guidelines that will allow you to look your best. The first rule of thumb when sporting this look is to choose a button-down shirt with arms long enough to tie around your waist. This is when your boyfriend’s wardrobe could come in handy! An oversized button-down plaid or flannel shirt works best.

Thread and Supply Button-up shirt

The button-up shirt doesn’t always have to be flannel or plaid. The shirt-around-the-waist look doesn’t have to portray a super casual look either. If you look, you will see celebrities wearing everything from plaid shirts to leather jackets around their waists. They also do a great job of bringing otherwise casual wear to effortless chic and polished looks. Celebrities and other fashionistas have been spotted pairing leather and heels with button-up shirts.

Since the 90’s revival of fashion first appeared on the runway, celebrities had the upper hand with jumping on this trend first. Here are some celebrity spottings:

Fringe + Bell Sleeves= Fall Boho

The fall Boho style can be created simply by combining the fall trends of fringe and bell sleeves. These trends are a must if you want to unleash your inner Boho babe.

Fringe

Finding fringe this fall won’t be difficult, but you don’t have to be decked out in fringe from head to toe to create a Bohemian look. Subtle doses of fringe will do the trick. Sweaters and cardigans with fringe have become popular and are a great addition to your fall wardrobe. Afraid to fully commit to the fringe trend? You can start with accessories or shoes. Glik’s has awesome fringe boots that will really add Boho to your style. You can also add a fringe scarf or fringe jewelry to your outfit to embrace the fringe craze.

Tis The Season for Holiday Dresses

Tis the season to get fancy! We all have our “Top 5” favorite reasons why we love the holidays; mine just happens to be that it is an excuse to get dressed up! Holiday parties are the homecoming dances of adult-land, except now spiking the punch is encouraged.

It’s not about waking up early, watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade in your fleece lined leggings, then transitioning them to the turkey (in some houses, ham) table. This blog post goes out to the ladies who love to dress up for Thanksgiving dinner by donning that perfect, go-to holiday dress that looks simply smashing!

It can be a chore to choose that perfect dress, so I’ve chosen a few of my favorite holiday styles to share.

Print heavy pieces are among the many styles to look forward to for fall, as well as one of the easiest to incorporate into your wardrobe. This brocade print shift dress from Everly is perfect for the holidays. Don’t hesitate to try out this not-so-tame trend at your family Thanksgiving dinner.

Everly Jazzy Velvet Dress

Since we’re all about fall and holiday trends, let’s discuss why velvet is high on our list for donning during the holiday season. Plush, luxurious, and oh-so refined; velvet is undergoing a renaissance and it’s a clean slate this time. Long gone are the thoughts of this fabric in the form of reenactment festival gowns, or Molly Ringwald’s pouf sleeves from the 80’s– bask in the beauty of this rich fabric.

The Los Angeles based fashion brand, Everly graced us with their take on the velvet trend with this gold-flecked and fabulous frock called the Jazzy Dress. Teen Vogue voted this Everly dress as one of their 61 Holiday Dresses That Will Be the Prettiest at the Party post.

A tried and true, timeless take on holiday fashions has to be the black and white trend. Admittedly, this marriage of hues has effortlessly transitioned from season to season for years. Is it even a trend anymore?

It can be as elegant, sophisticated or as edgy as you want it to be. One of the major advantages of this monochromatic color palette is that anyone can wear black and white, no matter what their personal style may be. The options, prints, patterns, and fits are endless and it is solely up to you on how to wear your black and white frock.

IMG_4828The fun happens when adding a splash of color. A red lip, belt, accessory or shoes would compliment your black and white outfit to perfection.

How to Wear Palazzo Pants

Palazzo pants have made several appearances throughout the decades of fashion history. In the 30’s and 40’s, style icons such as Katherine Hepburn rocked the wide leg trouser, which was unprecedented in that era.

Then in the 60’s and 70’s, the hippie nation brought the full on palazzo pant into vogue. I know these pants also made an appearance in the 80’s and 90’s, however brief the moment, but the wide leg palazzo pant is definitely back for 2013/2014.

In today’s fashion world the only rule is: there is no rule.  No longer does just one trend outweigh the rest. You have the freedom to choose which decade you want to reference and to mix and match various trends to complete your look. Fashion is about how you choose to express yourself – so don’t be afraid to try out different trends!

The palazzo pant may seem a bit intimidating if you are used to wearing your skinny jeans, but it really isn’t that hard to style these wide leg pants. Plus, they are so comfortable, how could your turn them down!?

You have a couple of options when styling palazzo pants. Because the legs of these pants are so full, it’s good to balance them with a more fitted top, or at least to tuck in a blouse to show off your waist and help balance your figure.Navy Palazzo Pants Outfit

The straight/slouchy silhouette is also in right now, so you could choose to play up the volume by wearing a boxy sweater with the pants.

The most simple solution to wearing palazzo pants is to wear a solid colored, fitted t-shirt (short-sleeve, long-sleeve, or 3/4 sleeve) tucked in and layer with jewelry or a scarf. Simple, but the complete look will be absolutely stunning.
