Just In: New Styles of Piko Tops and Dresses

If you’re just as obsessed with Piko tops and dresses, then Glik’s newest arrivals will have you doing a happy dance! These brand new styles are equally as comfortable as your already beloved Piko tops and come in brand new cuts and colors!

Piko tops

I’ll be frank; there have been times when I’ve asked myself, staring at my closet, “How many Piko shirts do you really need?” That question becomes easier to answer with every new style of Piko dress or shirt we receive. I. Need. All. Of. Them.

The Piko tunic is basic enough that you can pile on accessories, or it can look just as chic paired with a simple choker and topknot. You can also opt to wear a bralette underneath to add a little more coverage.

If you’re into the oversized look, you could style one of these dresses as a top. Simply throw on your Piko with skinny jeans, tuck in the front, and viola! Look at you, stepping outside the style box.

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.

POL Tanks

POL baby-doll tanks are one of their most well-known styles. They are cute, comfy, and are perfect for any woman. With unique colors, styles, and trims; baby-doll tanks are a hit! POL baby-doll tanks pair well with jeans, shorts, and leggings. Also add a long fringe necklace for an added feminine touch.

They have small detailed trim for a feminine touch and have a Bohemian feel to them with their bell sleeves. Our favorite way to pair them is with leather black shorts or joggers.

POL Dresses

POL dresses are cute and comfy! They have the same baby-doll shape as the tanks, yet are slightly more feminine. They come in swing dress designs, as well as long maxi dress designs. They also have the same lace trim detail and unique stone wash look to them. Our favorite way to wear them is with a bright colored bralette and gladiator sandals! A great way to get this look would be pairing the MIA Tall Devi Gladiators with the POL dresses.

This little detail brings a big punch when it comes to style. It can turn any daytime outfit into the perfect going out outfit, and make any casual outfit a little bit sweeter! We recommend pairing them with racerback lace bralettes from Wishlist and denim for a cool street-style look.

Fast Fashion: A Style Evolution

“Fast Fashion” is a new term that the fashion industry is using lately. It is changing the way consumers shop and the way retailers stock their shelves. Fast Fashion is more than just a movement, but it is causing an economic shift. However, many do not know what it even means. Retailers are able to quickly react to the popularity of certain items, and are able to hold back on items that do not do so well. Fast Fashion also allows customers to create their own sense of personal style because they are able to test out a large variety of fast fashion items.

Recently, our intern had the opportunity to study abroad in China and do research on the process of fast fashion. While in China, she observed fabric markets, fabric mills, production factories, showrooms, and finally in store layouts. Fast Fashion excels because the production line in short. One factory in China, had a production turn around of less than 30 days. This time period allowed the brand to excel and gain profit quickly, because they reacted to their customers needs quickly.

Graphic Tees: Make a Statement

graphic tees for women


If you’ve recently walked through a mall or scrolled through your Instagram feed, you’ve probably seen a graphic tee (or two… or three). This trend is popping up everywhere and for good reason.

Not only are graphic t-shirts comfy and totally on-trend, but they work on body types of all shapes and sizes. A cool statement tee can be worn dressed up with a skirt or dressed casually with a pair of boyfriend jeans.

graphic tees

It doesn’t matter if you only plan on wearing it on your off days or if you want to incorporate your graphics into your work wardrobe, the purpose of a graphic t-shirt is to reflect your personality, mood, or beliefs. Make sure when choosing a statement tee, you find one that not only speaks to you, but that you also want to speak for you. After all, your t-shirt will send a message… literally.

So, whether you’re all about, “drinking wine and taking naps” or just want to say, “y’all need Jesus”, Glik’s has a fun assortment of women’s graphic tees that are anything but boring.

The Dos and Don’ts of Fashion Shorts

With temperatures on the rise, it’s time to show some leg! Wearing fashion shorts is not only a way to keep cool in the blazing days of summer, but the right pair of shorts can also elevate your outfit from basic to Instagram worthy.

If you’re unsure how to wear cute shorts or what to wear them with, relax! I’ve got your back with a few helpful styling tips that are guaranteed to leave you looking (and feeling) your best.

fashion shorts
Don’t pair too short of shorts with high heels.

Do find the right balance between the length of your shorts and height of your heels. Keep this simple rule in mind: the shorter the shorts, the shorter the heel. The opposite also applies: the longer the shorts, the higher the heel can be.

Don’t avoid fun colors and prints.

Do find colors that flatter your skin tone and patterns that work for your body type. If you’re long and lean, don’t be afraid to try a larger print or bold color.   All my curvy girls, try sticking to a smaller print in a darker color. Vertical stripes and vibrant colors will work best for petite body types.

It’s tricky anytime you wear a pattern or bold color on your lower half, but it can be done!

Don’t write off your denim shorts.

Do find a classic pair of jean shorts that can be dressed up or down. Just like your longer length denim, shorts really will go with just about everything in your closet.

Don’t wear a shirt that covers your shorts.

Do experiment with a front tuck or try a cute knot if the shirt you’re dying to pair with your shorts is too long. As a hard rule, if your shirt is so long it looks like there’s nothing underneath, reconsider pairing them together.

Check out our selection of denim and fashion shorts and find a pair (or two) that work for you!
