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!

The Main Strip Frayed Vneck Sweater

Screen shot 2018-01-08 at 2.17.53 PMScreen shot 2018-01-09 at 4.06.08 PMOkay, so winter may not be my favorite season, but there is always one thing that I love about cold days, and that’s the sweater options! There is something almost magical about getting a new sweater and the Main Strip Frayed Vneck Sweater is a sweater that I have been absolutely smitten with since the first time laid eyes on it. This frayed cropped sweater comes in mustard, grey, mauve, and ivory, which are all beautiful muted tones that go well with whatever shoes, pants, or jeans you can think to wear them with. Definitely one of my favorite things about this sweater is how many things I can wear it with and feel like am an actual vogue-fashionista-model. This sweater makes it easy to look cute and it is the kind of comfy feel-good sweater that you naturally gravitate to!

Screen shot 2018-01-08 at 2.19.01 PM

Another major plus about this sweater is that it can be transitioned into all the seasonal outfits you can think of. Right now I like to wear it with my black ripped Silver denim and throw on my Levi’s denim jacket for a little more edge (and maybe a CC Beanie for a little more warmth)! For a relaxed lazy weekend look, I love this sweater with my high waisted light washed denim and some fuzzy socks when I hang out at my friends’ homes. But as soon as the weather warms up, I cannot wait to style this sweater with a bralette, a faux suede taupe skirt, and ankle booties, for a look to wear at the office or a casual night out!

The Main Strip Frayed Vneck Sweater is the kind of quintessential piece for your wardrobe! No matter what the temperature may be outside this sweater will be there for any look. Now sweater weather can officially last forever (maybe without the cold weather part though).  To shop these looks be sure to head to Gliks.com!

Booties to Step You into Spring

We can’t wait for warmer weather! And we cannot wait to transition these super cute booties out of our winter wardrobe and into our spring looks. The best thing about these booties is that while the weather is still cold we can wear them while we wait for Springy-er days (sigh).

Qupid-Prenton-Perf-Bootie-BLK-2

The Qupid Prenton Perforated Ankle Booties

These faux leather shoes with an oil finish are an awesome option for every day wear, whether to school or work. The cut out sides are perfect for showing off your frayed hem jeans. We love these shoes because they have major casual boho vibes! They are definitely the kind of shoe you throw on with your chunky sweater but also wear with your romper to see your favorite artist in concert. You can get these laid-back booties in Taupe or Black.

Prenton-Woven-Booties-1

The Qupid Prenton Woven Ankle Booties

These shoes have a chunky stacked heel and trendy almond toe design. The Prenton Woven Ankle has a stunning intertwined design on the leatherette uppers.

The Qupid Tuxedo Laser Cut Ballerina Ankle Booties

These shoes are the kind of things dreams are made of! The laser cut detailing on this shoe is some beautiful attention to detail. With a low cut style that looks wonderful with your distressed jeans. Or imagine it with a lightweight Piko dress to wear on warmer days out. We love these shoes because they are not super “heeled” like other booties for days you don’t feel like adding the extra height to your look. These booties have a dainty “ballerina shoe” feel to them, so you can feel as lightweight as these shoes when you wear them out. You can get the Qupid Tuxedo Laser Cut Ballerina Ankle Booties in a rich Nutmeg color or in an elegant Black color. Both practical and chic, these booties are a great option for the transition into the spring!

Spring Shoes- Styles We’re Obsessing Over

If you’ve ever muttered the phrase, “I have enough shoes,” you need to reevaluate your priorities…

I’m only kidding, of course. Let’s be friends and let’s talk spring shoes.

laser cut sandals

Warm weather may still feel a little out of reach, no thanks to Mr. Groundhog, but our footwear selection at Glik’s is locked and ready for the first inkling of spring.

hooded peep toe shoes, spring shoes

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m beyond ready to give my toes some room to b-r-e-a-t-h-e with a new pair of peep toe shoes! From casual sandals for a day at the office to more dressy peep toe booties for a night out, I’ll be reaching for this style on repeat.

preppy sandals

I’m also looking forward to sunshine-filled days when I can bust out comfy cute sandals. Available in two colorways, the Bork sandals will look great no matter your personal style. These strappy sandals will finish off preppy outfits, or pair perfectly with boho fashions.

Cut out booties are a major trend to watch this season. This small unexpected detail adds a ton of interest to a basic pair of ankle boots. You can easily style these shoes with a pair of cropped jeans, or opt for a spring dress for a look that’s a little more flirty and feminine.

Lace Up Sweaters: The New Wardrobe Staple

Can we talk about lace up sweaters for a minute?

It’s no secret; sweaters are a wardrobe staple and will never go out of style. Personally, there’s nothing I love better than a basic, chunky knit sweater. Well, that was the case until lace up sweaters started popping up all over my Instagram feed.

lace up sweaters

The lace up trend elevates a basic sweater into something much more stylish and coveted. Just add a cute pair of ankle boots and simple accessories, and voila! Instant #fashionblogger style status with minimal effort. This alone is reason enough for me to get behind a trend.

lace up shirts

This updated style gives a different vibe than a traditional chunky kit. You can easily wear a lace up top off the shoulder for a look that’s a little sexy, or you can wear it as is for an every day look. One sweater that can be styled two different ways? All the more reason to love a good lace up top!

Because lace up sweaters are a little more open, you’ll be able to take them from fall to winter to spring with ease. Major bonus points for versatility.

I’m also really loving sweaters that lace up the back. This detail adds an unexpected twist that takes a piece from basic to B-A-M!

Lace Up Sweaters: The New Wardrobe Staple

Criss Cross Tops and Dresses |All about that Neck(line)|

The terms “lace up” or “criss cross” may cause you to immediately think of lingerie or a risqué Halloween costume, but a strappy neckline doesn’t have to be intimidating (or a look reserved for night time). This trend is something you can work into your every day wardrobe. In some cases, it’s even suitable for work.

Criss Cross Tops

criss cross tops

A criss cross neckline add a subtle, slightly rebellious, detail that elevates even the most basic pieces. One of our favorite criss cross tees is available here in multiple colorways and sleeve lengths.

You’ll want to add a few (or three or four) to your wardrobe ASAP.

Bralettes

criss cross bralettesA criss cross bralette can be paired with a v-neck or lower scoop neck top so the strappy piece peeks out at the neck and amps up the overall look.

Criss cross bralettes also work well with off the shoulder shirts. Not only do they add a little extra coverage if you don’t want to completely bare your shoulder, but it also adds an element of edge to your outfit.

 

LACE UP DRESSES

lace up dressesAnother way to rock a detailed neckline is a lace up or criss cross dress. A dress with a trendy neckline eliminates the need for a necklace, but can be paired with a choker necklace for extra style points.

Shop criss cross tops and lace up dresses online at Glik’s!

Moto Leggings: Trend to Try

These bottoms fit like leggings, but give the illusion of real pants. Yes, please.

Both comfortable and on-trend, moto leggings pass the leggings-as-pants test because of one thing: the details. There are ribbed panels above each knee and zippers at the ankles, giving these pants an edgy but still very wearable look.

Moto pants will elevate any outfit, no matter how casual. Keep scrolling to see how we’re wearing moto-inspired leggings this season.

Moto Pants + Z Supply

We paired our olive green moto pants with a faux suede Z Supply tee and black ankle bootswomens moto pantsHitting right about the ankle, these pants are the perfect length to wear with short boots.

Moto Leggings + Freeloader

This is the outfit you’ll never want to take off (and I don’t blame you). This Freeloader clothing cardigan is made with a tiger brush fabric that is cozier than cozy. We had to throw another Z Supply tee underneath because they are just that comfy.

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.
