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!

We decided to go ahead and put together a couple outfits for both women and men! These items are all included in the anniversary sale and are fantastic pieces to have in your wardrobe! Keep reading to see what we’ve styled for you!

Outfit #1:

This first outfit is a great cozy option for fall weather! Flare jeans and chunky sweaters will keep you fashion forward this year. The light wash denim will pair with multiple styles of tops for year-round looks, but we stayed true to fall and all things cozy and paired it with this off the shoulder sweater! Speaking of, if you’re going to buy any item of this first outfit… BUY THE SWEATER. It’s a chunky cable knit sweater, that comes in a darling color, flattering fit, and features a trendy fringe detail! It can be worn either up as a mock neck or off the shoulder as well, score!

Outfit #2:

Every guy can rock this look, no excuses! A nice plaid shirt, dependable denim jeans, and a neutral pair of boots should be his go-to! This flannel button down shirt is made of super soft fabric and it comes in a variety of colors.

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.

Here is another great go-to option for a nicer night out for you guys! Layering a flannel or printed shirt underneath a ¼ zip sweater is a guaranteed way to look sharp! Our 1897 Brand offers such great styles for men at affordable prices. This lightweight, breathable sweater is slimming and versatile and features minimal designs (it also comes in various colors!) A nice, neutral pair of boots and another pair of our Silver Jeans for Men top off the look.

Booties for Fall 2018

booties for fall 2018

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.

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!

Glik’s Five Fall Favorites

Men’s Sweaters at Glik’s

Just because the temperature outside is about to reach a low point doesn’t mean that your style has to also. The solution to your winter wardrobe blues is the essential men’s sweater. If you are new rocking the men’s sweater, there is no need to stress. Glik’s offers a lot of handsome and attractive men’s sweaters for men that will liven up your wardrobe during the fall and winter seasons.

1897 Sweater for MenNot only do these sweaters make for attractive attire but they are also functional, stylish, and a great way to stay warm! Sweaters can be worn on a dinner date, to a holiday party, or to work on casual Fridays. Even when wearing casual sweaters, you can look sharp and stylish.

Men's Sweaters

Men's Quarter-Zip Sweater

The secret to adding sweaters to your wardrobe is variation. At Glik’s you can choose between quarter-zip, shawl collar, full-zip, and hooded sweaters. It is important to make sure the style is appropriate for the occasion. For instance, the sweaters with the shawl necklines look a tad bit dressier than the hooded sweaters and would be appropriate to wear to a holiday party or even to work. And depending on how you layer them, these men’s sweaters can be worn in the fall, winter, and possibly even into the spring.

Retro-fit Men's Sweaters

Men's Sweaters

If you are looking for a way to get more bang for your buck, try a sweater in a neutral color. Neutral colors like black, brown, gray, or tan are usually more practical because they can be worn more often and with different wardrobe combinations. And you can always add color to your outfit by layering a neutral sweater over a colorful shirt or by adding colorful accessories like a watch or a scarf.

Buyers Picks for Back to School and Fall

Show Me Your Style with Christy Haudrich

Welcome to the second installment of our Show Me Your Style! Today we introduce you to Mrs. Christy Haudrich, Regional Manager, and member of the Glik’s team for 20 WHOLE.

Same story goes, we sat her down at this year’s 2012 Holiday Regional meetings and asked her to share a bit about herself with us.

So, here goes…

Me: How would you describe your personal style?

Christy: I am a mother of two wonderful children– I like to dress on the conservative side yet keep up with fashion trends.

Me: I agree, keep it classy for the kids, yet sassy in terms of style.

Christy: You’ve got it.

Me: I’m going to give you a situation: You’ve just spent the day transitioning your wardrobe from summer over to fall. What would you say is the most dominant item in your closet?

Christy: I’m definitely a fan of the sweater. My closet is full of cardigans, oversized sweaters, and sweater dresses. They’re a perfect add-on to a comfy pair of boots and dark wash jeggings.

Me: Speaking of Holiday 2012, there are so many fun trends for this season. What is your favorite trend right now?

Christy: My favorite trend is jeggings with riding boots and an animal print top. Just add a scarf or some fashion jewelry for a complete look!

Style File: Boots Are In!!!

It’s still August which means, contrary to the current temps, it is almost time to dig out our sweaters, jackets, and BOOTS.

Fall weather tells you to pack up your sandals and flip flops, and forces you pull out your socks and start covering your toes! One of my personal favorite parts of fall fashion are BOOTS and this season’s styles are better than ever! Below you’ll find great new boots available in stores and online at www.gliks.com!

To get you in the mood for some BOOT shopping here are some of the new styles at Glik’s, ONE for everyday of the week! Perfect!

1. Case of the Mondays? Not when you’re wearing the “Asiana” Riding Boot! Miss the bus on purpose & hop on a Motorcycle in these!

2. Daydreaming of Friday Already? We are too in the totally versatile “Gerry” Riding Boot. Wear the cuff folded down at work and flip it up & loose the cardi for last minute happy hour or dinner plans!

3. Need a little Pick Me Up? The 3″ wedge heel on the “Della” Boot will give it to you! Forget to finish your laundry? No worries these boots are easy to pair with just about anything you have in your closet (or on your floor) Shhh..we won’t tell! Happy Hump Day!

4. It’s Thursday, and you can just about taste the weekend… Need something to remind you of the fun you’ll soon be having relaxing, shopping, and dancing? May I present to you the “Camilla” Bootie. If you don’t have a pair of booties yet you are missing out! These have a sherpa-lined cuff that can be worn up or down, and also have an amazingly comfortable chunky heel.

5. Who said Fridays had to be casual? Slip into the “Agatha” Boot and you’ll be FAR FAR away from Casual Friday, and much closer to the weekend! Anything animal print is super hot right now, so why not let your inner party animal out with these zebra-print cuffed boots!? Want to keep it simple.. fold the cuff up and the zebra-print pattern is replaced with silver studs!
