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!

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. You can easily throw these shoes on and off with the hook and loop fastener strap design. We love these shoes because they have a super unique design, you will want to wear these with your favorite denim all the time. But no matter what you decide to wear with these shoes, they will help make your outfit unique and distinctive! You can get these trendsetting shoes in either a Light Grey or a Taupe color.

Qupid-Tuxedo-Laser-Cut-Ballerina-Bootie---Nutmeg

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!

Any of these three shoes will help you take the cold steps into your spring looks. These are just some of the booties we have been crushing on lately, for even more booties check out our site at Gliks.com!
