Our Favorite Trends of the Season

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.)

How to Wear Cut-Out Backs

Since it has started to get warmer and the sun has begun to shine, it is time to break out the spring and summer attire. This summer is going to be full of new hot trends to try. One of our favorite new trends is the cut-out back. Glik’s has dresses, cardigans, sweaters, and tops that feature unique cut-out designs on the backside of the garment.

There are many different ways you can wear dresses or tops with cut-out backs. One way you can flaunt the cut-out design is to bare your back. Another way is to pair your top or dress with a cute bandeau or cami. If your cut-out top is a solid color, it may be fun to pair it with a colorful bandeau or cami.

One of our favorite new brands, Amuse Society, has a lot of cut-out back details on their clothing. For instance, the Brooklyn Kimono in Leopard Print has a dramatic cut-out back that transforms a regular long cardigan into a sassy, fashion-forward piece.

Hot New Trend for Fall 2014: The Genie Jumpsuit

My top 3 Fashion Wishes for Fall 2014?

1. Versatility

2. Comfort

3. Style

Encompassing all 3 of these is the Genie Jumpsuit! As far as trends go, this fashion piece has it all.

Versatility

The Genie Jumpsuit can be worn to so many places from a beach excursion to a wedding. Pair it with your flip-flops for a laid-back day or belt the waistline with some pumps for a more formal ensemble. However you style the Genie Jumpsuit, you will be chic and on trend.

Comfort

The Genie Jumpsuit is commonly constructed with a woven rayon fabric. This allows the material to drape comfortably across your body, looking great and feeling soft. Rayon absorbs and wicks moisture better than cotton, so the Genie Jumpsuit is perfect for a day in the sun. On top of that the jumpsuit has a flowy fit, so you will undoubtedly be lounging in it around the house as well.

Style

The Genie Jumpsuit combines the traditional jumpsuit and flyaway pant and transforms them into a trendy fashion forward piece that can be worn by anyone. With a Bollywood meets Arabian Nights style, you can morph this jumpsuit into several different looks. Accessorize this fashion piece in a pinch by adding gold chain necklaces, bangles, or your favorite Pink Pewter Headband!

Essential Layering Pieces for Fall

If you have been out shopping lately, I am sure you have seen all of the fall clothing hitting stores. I don’t know about you, but I am SO excited to start wearing my cardigans, scarves, and boots. Layering clothing for the fall gives you the opportunity to show your creativity and style. Glik’s can help you find those essential layering pieces for fall!

Cardigans

The first fall essential on our list is the thin cardigan. Thin cardigans can be your best friend since they are easy to layer and create an effortless, yet stylish look. Our Poof Cardigans are the perfect thin layering sweater. You can be super trendy this fall season by throwing a cardigan on over your jumpsuits, rompers, or dresses.

Button-ups

Button-ups can be used to really elevate your outfit. If you have a plain sweater and need to spice it up a little, try pairing it with a patterned button-up. Button-up shirts also look great left open with another shirt underneath. Pairing plaid button-ups with graphic tees will create a huge statement this fall.

Scarves

Who doesn’t love scarves!? If you are ever in need of an accessory to complete your outfit, a scarf is your go-to piece. Scarves are comfortable to wear and look amazing when layering your outfits. If you are hesitant to wear scarves because you would rather show off your necklaces– no worries!  Layering scarves and necklaces together is super cute and trendy. Wear your necklace on the top of your scarf or vice versa this fall.

Leggings

If you still want to wear leggings this fall, you are in luck! Leggings are great for layering and look great with tunics and dresses. For this look, we paired a plain dress with a fun patterned legging. It really adds character and personality to an otherwise simple dress! Another reason we love leggings is the fact that they look great tucked in tall riding boots or combat boots. (And they are oh, so comfortable!).

Chambray Shirt

Last, but certainly not least on our list, is the chambray shirt. If you don’t already have a chambray shirt you must get one! We are in love with this Ellison brand chambray button-up shirt. Anyone can style this chambray shirt to cater to her personal style. Layer it with scarves, button-up shirts, and sweaters for an uber chic style.
