Styles We Love: Romper Edition

styles we loveRompers are basically just a dress that offers a little more freedom, and we are here for it. They are also a socially acceptable onesie that you can go out in, we are here for that! Nothing is better than simple fashion that does the work for you, and rompers are basically in OT with how cute they make us look with zero effort on our part.

Another one of our favorite things about rompers is that they always look good with whatever shoes you pair with them. As you can see from the photos, they look absolutely perfect with just a bralette and maybe a little bit of jewelry depending on the occasion.

Rompers are also a great piece to transition you into fall weather. You can just throw on some booties, maybe a cardigan, and have you have yourself a fall ready look. Or if you really want a trendy style, throw a long sleeve flowy white shirt underneath; you’ll be warm and have a super stylish look. Thankfully we have about two and half more months of good summer weather and don’t have to think about how to wear our cute rompers in autumn weather quite yet!

If you haven’t added a romper to your wardrobe yet, now is the time! If you are already a romper feign, then you will need to check out the gorgeous new styles that we just added to Gliks.com! Below we have 5 rompers that will be just what your closet has needed!

Summer Dresses~ The Maxi Dress

Summer Dresses

Easily one of the best parts of the summer season are dresses, and while there are so many styles of dresses today, we are going to be talking about the maxi dress. Nothing beats throwing on a dress in the morning and walking out the door looking #flawless. Whether you are wearing a maxi dress for a special occasion or for days of running around town, here are 4 maxi dresses that we are currently crushing on here at Glik’s.

3

The first maxi dress is by Everly. Everly is a brand that you know will always have quality clothing with a girly, feminine style. This dress is a super versatile wrap dress in a beautiful colorway. Our shoe recommendation would be a simple peep toe mule shoe or try an espadrille platform shoe to give you some height! Honestly, any shoe or accessory would pair well with this dress because of its beautiful neutral color, but you should definitely try and accessorize with your favorite sun hat!

2

If you want a more casual dress for everyday wear, you have to check out the Elan Clothing Halter Striped Maxi Dress in Navy. It’s a jersey knit dress with on seam hand pockets, and a rounded hem. Try knotting the bottom and putting on some strappy heels with your favorite accessories for a more dressed up look for nights out. We are loving them with some platform espadrille wedges to give you a little height with your look. For a comfier style try pairing it with some super comfy Sanuk sandals for pool days.

4

We of course have to talk about the two piece maxi dress option. Illa Illa has so many adorable two piece sets that are just perfect for summer. The floral patterns are the perfect summer pattern. This particular set comes in two different colorways and has a shorts lining, which is amazing for days where you want to be on the move and wear a dress. Bonus! ~ you can always pair the top with your favorite distressed shorts and some Borks. Or you can try wearing the skirt with a solid Piko top and some strappy sandals by Soda. There’s really so many outfit options with a two piece set!

The Storia Palm Print maxi dress is another one of our faves. Palm print, ruffles, and off the shoulder are very on trend details of the season, and this dress gives you all of those things in the most stylish way! This dress will look amazing with the City Classified Hudson shoes or any other neutral colored low heel. This type of shoe will perfectly match everything in your closet and you definitely need to add our straw bag to give your look more of those beachy vibes.

How to Wear Fall Boots

Fall is here which means one thing: BOOTS! We have a whole table of boots here at the Granite City Glik’s location and I grabbed a few styles to show all of you,how to wear each kind of boot with what kind of outfits!

First boot: The motorcycle boot. This great boot is made by a cleverly named Dirty Laundry and is priced at a reasonable $59. This studded mid calf boot would look great with a camouflage look like the two put together here.

The first look is an open back, halter-top by Hot and Delicious and the other is a burn out tank by Everly. Both tops are worn over Machine shredded jeans. These are both great ways to wear the Army inspired trend with the motorcycle look.

Second boot: These mid ankle, brown suede boots with the bronze buckles are also made my Dirty Laundry and are $49.
These would look great with the classic floral trend . Shown here is a floral sleeveless dress by Everyly and a cute fedora hat.

Third boot: Studded ankle boot by Wanted, priced at $39 dollars. As I’m sure you know, STUDS ARE HOT! This boot is also part of the motorcycle trend with its perforated leather and silver harness.
These boots would look adorable with this frilly off the shoulder dress by Lovely Day which is $28. This look mixes feminine flare and tough motor girl perfectly!

The last boot is a perforated suede leather boot made by Ugg. Now, these are not your typical Ugg boots. These are much more style consciousness and can be worn with a lot more than jeans and sweatpants like their classic styles. These fashionable shoes can be worn with dresses, leggings , jeggings, and shorts. Let’s just say really anything! These boots are in style and will keep you fabulous for fall and warm all winter long.

Stop by your nearest Glik’s store for a fabulous boot selection and plenty of apparel to wear with them!
