header

Now that it is officially April, Spring is in full throttle with Summer right around the corner (fingers crossed!). This being said, we wanted to talk about our favorite trends of the season! These are some of our top picks from Glik’s and we think you need to add them all to your closet (if you haven’t already).

Dresses, and rompers, and jumpsuits.. Oh my!

So many new arrivals have been hitting in stores and online and it is SO hard to narrow them down.  However, basics, stripes, and floral prints seem to be the name of the game. Three of our new favorite dresses are the Amuse Society Clothing Bohemian Rhapsody Maxi Dress, the Love Stitch Clothing Denim Stripe Dress, and the Wild Honey Palm Print Dress! These scream summer and are super fun pieces for your next adventure!

Rompers and jumpsuits have also been our go-to this Spring. They are super comfy and versatile, so they are easy to just slip on and go! You can dress them down with sandals or sneakers ,or dress them up with a pair of your favorite heels or wedges! Some of our new favorites are the Anama Clothing Twist Front Jumper, the Elan Strappy Surplice Jumper, and the Everly Clothing Peplum Windowpane Romper! With the simple designs and solid colors, these pieces are great to add your own twist with unique accessories!

Slide into the season…

You can never have too many pairs of shoes; they are just a continuous way of life. This season, we are focusing on mules and flatflorm slides! They are classy, cute, versatile, and elevate your favorite looks! Qupid Shoes have multiple mules and slides to choose from, and we love everything they throw our way! With simple designs and neutral coloring, they offer flats and heels so you are destined to find the pair that suits you.  Some of our favorites include the Mia Shoes Saige Banded Platform Sandals, the Qupid Shoes Jaden Ruched Mules, the Report Shoes Ryder Heeled Mules, the Soda Shoes Coxy Cross Slides, and the NYLA Shoes Thing 1 Flatform Sandals.  (See, we told you shoes are hard to narrow down!)

Add On Accessories!

Accessories have also become a huge focus in trending fashion.  Pieces that are neutral and versatile seem to be what all the talk is about! Bralettes are still a completely necessary and trending piece for your year round wardrobe. We know we always talk about them, but that’s just how important we think they are! Another new item we recently received are Teleties! These hair ties are so fashionable and can be worn as bracelets when they are not being used for a pain- and kink-free ponytail.  And since you will need a stylish bag to hall of your daily necessities around in, a straw bag is just what you need for the season! We received this straw handbag from Caroline Hill and immediately got heart eyes! (Hint Hint: Your closet needs this bag too.)

Floral Items You Need This Season

How to_ Florals for Spring (3)

Okay, so we know florals for spring isn’t actually the most novel idea. It’s a concept as old as Mother Nature herself. (Cue the best movie ever, aka the Devil Wears Prada)

Adding a bold floral to your closet can seem like an overwhelming chore. To help you figure out what florals you need this year we rounded up a few pieces that are exactly what you need.

Let’s start with the most obvious; the floral print dress. This is the best item a girl can have in her closet! Perfect for warm days spent outside, family get togethers, and evening concerts. A floral dress is timeless and a dress like any of these three will last you for seasons.

Untitled designThe yellow maxi by Everly is sweet and feminine, a maxi dress is just what you need for spring and early summer. If bright florals aren’t your thing, a dress like the Amuse Society printed dress in blue has a more toned down, subtle look. For a totally different take on the flowery clothing, you can try a style with embroidered or appliqué flowers, like the Everly Embroidered Gingham dress, it gives you the floral your spring closet needs while being subtle. This gingham dress has all the 90s vibes that are trending right now too (BONUS)!

Speaking of embroidered things, floral embroidered jeans are the way to go this season! They you give you that subtle hint of floral, plus we have these in so many styles that it’s an easy way to make it fit your personal taste! For the perfect fitspo look, we are loving the Mono B activewear collection and even if you end up never going to the gym, these stylish leggings make the best loungewear. For a sweet summer flower-pattern, these En Creme Twill Leaf Shorts are lightweight and they have a charming palm leaf and floral print. How much more summery can a pair of shorts get??

For a more of an unexpected floral look, you can try a bold floral top in a unique style to give your closet something fun. The bell sleeve top by Lush or the Amuse Society Tie Front Crop Top are eye-catching styles that will give you the sweet floral with a twist.

Now for accessories, we just love floral accessories because they go great with the neutrals in your closet, or to be daring you can throw these with some patterns like stripes, or gingham prints. Adding a floral printed shoe to your summer wardrobe will be the totally unexpected and a super fashionable addition. You can try a shoe like the Blowfish Marley shoes, they are the perfect summertime style, but with that pastel and colorful design, they are next level adorable! We are loving headbands during this time of the year, they are perfect for throwing up your hair when it’s hot and still managing to look put together! These two prints by Natural Life are so sweet, perfect for adding something fun to your everyday looks!

For even more flowery goodness, you have to peep Gliks.com, we have so many other floral dresses and tops that you definitely need to check out.

Glik’s Style

Hello, Everyone!!! Hope you’re all having a Happy Friday! It’s been such a busy week filled with work, holiday prepping, and (most importantly) new activities here at Glik’s HQ, which I am super excited to share with you all!

So, we’re all fans of Instagram right? That app has become the heart and sole of my smart phone. I buy editing apps to use with it, get called out on a daily basis for taking too many photos of my food, and look completely awkward trolling around the office and pretty much the general public with my phone taking “interesting” angle shots. It’s an addiction, I will fully admit to needing a possible 5 Step Plan (as if).
Instagram is fun, addicting, and a great way to connect with so many other people, brands, businesses, and non-profits that share the same interests as you. Everyday I check the @GlikClick account and come across some great style photos that we have been tagged in. It’s so cool to see everyone’s individual style and how they translate that to the world around them.

Of course, this gave me an idea. Why not share these great photos with everyone! Thus, Glik’s Style File has been born. Once or twice a month I will be posting a few amazing photos of you all dressed in Glik’s fashions. So here goes…

A Dress to Impress: Jack by BB Dakota

It’s time to thin out your closet! Get your heavy sweaters, thick socks, long underwear and snow boots consolidated into a small box labeled ‘Winter Storage’ and make room. Even though that silly sun keeps playing peek-a-boo with the seemingly constant overcast clouds and teasing us with warmer ‘ish’ temperatures, we all know; spring is coming.

So, get out your gardening tools, because BB Dakota and Jack by BB Dakota dresses are beginning to blossom at Glik’s in this Spring’s hottest trends; vivid colors, delicate laces, quirky prints and flirty stripes!

Walk the line:

 Whether Chevron, Missoni, Mitered, or Shadow, a hot print trending this spring is stripes. The Jack by BB Dakota Lund Dress is a wonderful example of fashion’s fun power when you pair a super trendy horizontal strip print with vivid island colors of medallion yellow & surf blue.  Then, put it on a feminine flirty fit-n-flare dress. A fashionista’s best friend is her cardigan, so have fun with this pleated dress while the weather is still slightly cool by pairing it with tights, a cute pair of flats and a cute skinny belt.

Seeing Spots:

 This spring you’ll see a refreshing take on a classic trend with polka dots. These playful circles are simple yet youthful.  Have fun with this quirky print like Jack by BB Dakota did when they introduced the Cruz Dress in all it’s brightly colored, chiffon glory. Pair this oh-so-sweet frock with cute socks, spring inspired wedges and your fav-cropped sweater or don a fun blazer.

Do You See Me Now:

It is all about COLOR!! I use all caps when saying this, because with paradise themed names like, Tangerine Tango, Margarita, Cabaret, Cockatoo and Solar Power who can’t help but grab for their sunglasses and hope for a bronzed tan! Can you feel the sun’s warmth yet? I bet you can when you’re in a vividly bright, body con dress like the Jemma Dress from Jack by BB Dakota’s Spring 2012 line.  Think bold when you’re in this BB Dakota dress, pair it with color block platform heels and a cropped jacket or blazer, but go minimal on the accessories since you don’t want to overload your look.

Everything’s Coming Up Roses:

Lilies, daisies, tulips, and daffodils…  you name it; if it is a flower then you will be seeing it. Fitting since it is spring, right?  We promise that you will be seeing head-to-toe floral this season along with feminine shapes and delicate accents. The Bardot Floral Dress from Jack by BB Dakota is a darling example of all things super girly. This super cute strappy dress embodies “female” with its bustier style top and pleated flare skirt! Wear this dress with a color ‘pop’ cardigan belted at you waist, tights and cute spring flats for a casual look or dress it up with a blazer and heels.

Spring 2012 trends are all abloom and we’re excited to see more apparel BB Dakota apparel! Come get your fashionista fix and see more of the fantastic spring dresses from Jack by BB Dakota at gliks.com or any Glik’s store location nearest to you!
