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.

piko dresses

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.

piko shirts

There’s not a single style of Piko that disappoints. From the keyhole tops, to criss cross dresses, to basic Piko tops and dresses, there’s a fit that works for every body!

Check out our entire selection here!

Spring Shoes- Styles We’re Obsessing Over

v ankle boots

If you’ve ever muttered the phrase, “I have enough shoes,” you need to reevaluate your priorities…

I’m only kidding, of course. Let’s be friends and let’s talk spring shoes.

laser cut sandals

Warm weather may still feel a little out of reach, no thanks to Mr. Groundhog, but our footwear selection at Glik’s is locked and ready for the first inkling of spring.

hooded peep toe shoes, spring shoes

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m beyond ready to give my toes some room to b-r-e-a-t-h-e with a new pair of peep toe shoes! From casual sandals for a day at the office to more dressy peep toe booties for a night out, I’ll be reaching for this style on repeat.

preppy sandals

I’m also looking forward to sunshine-filled days when I can bust out comfy cute sandals. Available in two colorways, the Bork sandals will look great no matter your personal style. These strappy sandals will finish off preppy outfits, or pair perfectly with boho fashions.

Cut out booties are a major trend to watch this season. This small unexpected detail adds a ton of interest to a basic pair of ankle boots. You can easily style these shoes with a pair of cropped jeans, or opt for a spring dress for a look that’s a little more flirty and feminine.

Lace Up Sweaters: The New Wardrobe Staple

Can we talk about lace up sweaters for a minute?

It’s no secret; sweaters are a wardrobe staple and will never go out of style. Personally, there’s nothing I love better than a basic, chunky knit sweater. Well, that was the case until lace up sweaters started popping up all over my Instagram feed.

lace up sweaters

The lace up trend elevates a basic sweater into something much more stylish and coveted. Just add a cute pair of ankle boots and simple accessories, and voila! Instant #fashionblogger style status with minimal effort. This alone is reason enough for me to get behind a trend.

lace up shirts

This updated style gives a different vibe than a traditional chunky kit. You can easily wear a lace up top off the shoulder for a look that’s a little sexy, or you can wear it as is for an every day look. One sweater that can be styled two different ways? All the more reason to love a good lace up top!

Because lace up sweaters are a little more open, you’ll be able to take them from fall to winter to spring with ease. Major bonus points for versatility.

I’m also really loving sweaters that lace up the back. This detail adds an unexpected twist that takes a piece from basic to B-A-M!

Lace Up Sweaters: The New Wardrobe Staple

Criss Cross Tops and Dresses |All about that Neck(line)|

The terms “lace up” or “criss cross” may cause you to immediately think of lingerie or a risqué Halloween costume, but a strappy neckline doesn’t have to be intimidating (or a look reserved for night time). This trend is something you can work into your every day wardrobe. In some cases, it’s even suitable for work.

Criss Cross Tops

criss cross tops

A criss cross neckline add a subtle, slightly rebellious, detail that elevates even the most basic pieces. One of our favorite criss cross tees is available here in multiple colorways and sleeve lengths.

You’ll want to add a few (or three or four) to your wardrobe ASAP.

Bralettes

criss cross bralettesA criss cross bralette can be paired with a v-neck or lower scoop neck top so the strappy piece peeks out at the neck and amps up the overall look.

Criss cross bralettes also work well with off the shoulder shirts. Not only do they add a little extra coverage if you don’t want to completely bare your shoulder, but it also adds an element of edge to your outfit.

 

LACE UP DRESSES

lace up dressesAnother way to rock a detailed neckline is a lace up or criss cross dress. A dress with a trendy neckline eliminates the need for a necklace, but can be paired with a choker necklace for extra style points.

Shop criss cross tops and lace up dresses online at Glik’s!

Trend Alert: Sherpa Pullovers and Vests

Sherpa for men and womenFALL IN LOVE WITH SHERPA

Dylan by True Grit

Introducing the item of the year from True Grit Clothing: sherpa Pullovers and Vests! These pullovers and vests are to die for! The ultra-plush fabric is perfect for the colder weather heading our way. The main question we receive about these hot items are regarding the sizing and the difference between True Grit and Dylan.

True Grit:

Built for men. True Grit pullovers are crafted with a squared hem and side slits. These men’s pullovers have an oversized fit and are perfect for layering. When men purchase True Grit pullovers, we recommend ordering their true size. For women ordering a True Grit pullover, we recommend ordering down one size for the perfect, slightly oversized fit.

Dylan by True Grit:

Dylan is the women’s brand made by True Grit clothing. The women’s Dylan pullovers have a slimmer fit and also feature side slits. Made in U.S. women’s sizing instead of junior’s, these pullovers are cut with an oversized construction. We recommend ordering your true size in these pullovers to receive the desired fit.
