619 blogIt’s one of the best times of the year with some of the best activities. There’s the picnics, the fairs, sparklers, barbecues, fireworks etc. Basically the Instagram photo opportunities for the Fourth of July holiday are endless. And with endless activities you should have a standout fashionable ensemble that matches the sparkler that you are.

Denim screams America to me and a good classic blue denim can get you far on the 4th of July. This Thread and Supply Denim dress is the perfect blue for your outfit, pair it with the Free People Bralette, and a snazzy pair of red heels for a truly stunning outfit.

Attachment-2

For a slight preppy look try the Everly Ruffle Hem shorts. These shorts are perfect for every day wear but will be amazing for your red, white, and blue look. Pair it with a Wishlist Reversible tank and the Qupid Comfy slides. Throw on some blue accessories, your sunglasses, and you are ready to celebrate. Be sure to grab a denim jacket to wear in case it gets cold while watching fireworks.

Attachment-3

For a classic look, try the Moa Moa USA racerback tank and a good pair of denim. Pair this Americana top with a festive red O2 denim skirt, or with flare denim jeans in a dark wash. And of course, reach for your white converse to complete this fantastic and classic look.

Attachment-4

For a free spirit inspired look, try the Free People Sleepy Eyes Brami with the Thread and Supply Paper Bag High Rise Pants. Then add a casual pair of slides and maybe throw on a red bandanna to tie this look all together!

Hopefully, these four looks will inspire you for your own Fourth of July look! This is a fun holiday and you should have fun with your outfit!

1 Key Piece 3 Looks: The Vervet Jeans Denim Skirt

header

Denim skirts have been trending up this year, just like denim fashion in general.  And since the warmer temps are now in full effect, it’s time to swap out some of your looks from denim jeans to a denim skirt! So, we decided to help you out a bit by showing you three different looks with one key piece: the Vervet Jeans High Waist Ripped Denim Skirt.  Vervet Denim is new to Glik’s and we are loving everything we have seen from them so far. This skirt is such a good investment to rotate within your warm weather wardrobe!  Keep reading to see how we styled this skirt three different ways.

1. F e s t i v a l  F e e l s

This first outfit is great for summer day outings! Since the denim skirt sits high on your hips, it pairs perfectly with crop tops! We decided to pair the skirt with a Free People Sleepy Eyes Brami.  This bralette-camisole top is absolutely amazing! It is super versatile since it can be worn alone as a top or layered under your favorite fashion tops and kimonos as a bralette.  Keeping the boho vibes alive, we decided to finish this look with a pair of platform slides! These are the City Classified Shoes Strauss Platform Slides in Black. If you don’t have a pair of espadrille platform shoes already, what are you waiting for!?

2. L a i d  B a c k  S t y l e

This next look can be worn nearly anywhere for a cute and casual look.  A girl can never have too many graphic tees (am I right?), so we paired this Vervet distressed skirt with this sweet tee from Amuse Society!  Laid back style is what this year’s fashion is all about, so we are teeing it up in full force!  We paired this look with a pair of simple slide sandals from Qupid Shoes! The Qupid Comfy Banded Slides are available in multiple colors, so you can add to your obsession. If you are feeling super daring and working this look, throw on a denim jacket over the graphic t-shirt or tie it around your waist.  Denim on denim forever.

3. W e e k e n d  V i b e s

vervet look 3

The last outfit we put together for you all is a great option for a night out! Pairing the Vervet Jeans High Waist Ripped Denim Skirt with a printed blouse will take your look to the next level.  The Love Stitch Clothing Diamond Tie Front Top in Denim and Vanilla is perfect for summer! The lightweight and flowy fit is great for warm summer nights, while the pattern and tie front is super flattering on most body types.  This pattern not your look? Check out the other tie front tops we have to offer!  Slip on a pair of neutral strappy heels, like these Brammer Perforated Heels from Qupid Shoes, and your third look is complete.

We hope you have developed the same love and inspiration from these looks as we did! Check out Glik’s Official on Instagram for more style inspo and shop these looks (and more) at gliks.com!

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!

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!

Viva Las Vegas

All of the photos from our buying trip to MAGIC have been uploaded and organized, FINALLY.  I can’t believe that this time last week I was in Las Vegas hanging out with the buying team and exploring what seemed like hundreds of vendor booths.  My trip seemed like a blur even though we extended our stay an extra 2 days (not by choice) due to the crazy Midwest snow apocalypse.

WWDMAGIC is held in collaboration with Women’s Wear Daily and runs for three days. This event features on-trend fashion forecasts, networking events, seminars and all the current styles of the season. WWDMAGIC features more than 2,000 new & established brands that range across every price point and follow up-to-date trends.

We only had enough time to visit 3 shows.

  • WWDMAGIC features the most current and wide-ranging collection of women’s brands.
  • FNPLATFORM is the shoe show at MAGIC.
  • PROJECT MENSWEAR features an extensive collection of men’s fashion brands.

MAGIC holds more shows that feature all aspects of the fashion industry, but we only attended these three, and three days wasn’t nearly enough time to properly explore the shows that we did visit.

Here are a few more photos from the event. To see the full album, visit us on Facebook!

Can I Get a High 5 for Fall?

I know that I may regret saying this once it gets too cold, but I can’t help my fond feelings for fall. Retail sales floors all over are starting to look like the leaves on a tree that is preparing for cooler weather. Imagine it… fall product is popping up like individual leaves turning from green to vibrant hues of oranges, reds, browns, and golden yellows.  Ahh… (I’m imagining at this very moment).

Maybe it’s the fact that I have been in a super denim state of mind lately or that I am really feeling all of the hot new fall trends, but I decided to pick a few of my favorite fashions from brands that I currently adore for a 5 for Fall pick list!

Free People Cypress Jacket:

I pretty much am obsessed with Free People clothing and this jacket takes the cake! Loving the vintage wash, destructed denim vest/ Fair Isle sweater sleeves mix…very versatile for fall!

Denim Shirt:

Every wardrobe needs a denim shirt in it for this fall! I have two in my closet currently, a light AND medium wash. Denim shirts are super versatile and can be layered with anything! I will often wear mine belted with a dress or left open with an A-line maxi skirt. I have even tried the “Canadian Tuxedo” look by pairing a medium to dark wash pair of jeans with my lighter wash denim shirt! Layer, layer, layer!

BB Dakota Krysta Aztec Woven Top:

This tie-neck top from BB Dakota is a perfect addition to any closet. This southwest inspired woven top can be worn tucked in or flowing loosely over your comfiest pair of destructed cut off denim shorts. The Krysta top can be matched effortlessly with other items to create a number of boho chic outfits fit to follow you into the fall.

Silver Jeans Co. Suki Jegging:

The Suki just might be my favorite fit from Silver Jeans Co. This mid-rise, relaxed hip & thigh fit is one of many custom cut denim styles made to flatter only your best features!

Roxy Crosby Boot:

I have found a new love for fall…boots! That’s right, boots that look like you could go hiking in the woods whilst you’re simply navigating the streets or campus sidewalks. Be daring and wear your lace up boots with tights and a pattern print dress. Finish off the outfit with a belted flannel or denim button down top and chunky knit, or ho-made crochet scarf!

I understand that it is still hot out BUT school will begin again shortly and fall will follow soon after! Be sure to get your wardrobes ready!
