First things first: leggings. You can NEVER have too many pairs.  Anyone who tells you otherwise, well, they’re just plain wrong. We have recently gotten in so many cute and trendy pairs of leggings and you definitely need one of each pair! These leggings are made with a comfortable stretch fabric that is perfect for lounging or cardio.

If you want to be SUPER trendy and put-together, buy an active-wear set! These sports bra crop tops are perfect for the warmer months coming up.  They come in cute matching prints as some of the leggings we carry and feature a comfortable, padded construction. Not comfortable with wearing only the crop top and leggings? Throw on a basic tee or tank over the sports bra and you’re all set.  For chilly or windy days, invest in a neutral windbreaker or athleisure pullover.  With muted tones and a simple design, your look will go from bleak to chic in no time.

How to Wear Flats in the Fall

The weather may be getting cooler, but there are many different ways to wear flats year round. Let us show you how to wear flats in the fall.

Jessica Simpson Flats

Flats are fun and totally acceptable to wear in autumn. You can pair your flats with your casual outfits and look stunning. We have styled our Jessica Simpson Mikia flats with a graphic sweatshirt and destructed skinny jeans. The studded flats and style of clothing give off a rocker chick vibe. This outfit would be fun to wear to work, school, or during your weekend outings.

If you want to boost the style of a casual outfit, try cuffing the bottom hem of your jeans. Here we have paired another casual layered ensemble with the Jessica Simpson Mandalaye Ballet Flats. These flats are not a typical pair of flats because they resemble actual Ballet Pointe Shoes. Wearing these Jessica Simpson shoes will definitely put a very stylish, yet feminine twist on your casual fall outfit.

Summer may be over, but don’t put away your decorated flats! They can also be worn into the fall. For example, these Jessica Simpson Milee Flats have a lovely bow that adds a soft touch to an outfit. Bow flats or other decorated flats are easy to dress up, so they pair nicely with dresses or other dressy attire. Too chilly for a dress? Add leggings to transition both your flats and dresses to a cooler season.

Other styles of bottoms that can be worn with flats include colored denim and flared or bell bottom pants. If you wear colored denim jeans or pants, make sure you choose a pair of flats that will compliment the jean color. If you have busy patterns and prints on your pants, you will want to avoid flats that will clash with the patterns.

How to Wear Printed Leggings

Printed leggings are popping up everywhere! Aztec, animal, camo, galaxy, geometric, stripe, you name it, it’s out there. This trend can be a bit intimidating if you aren’t used to wearing a lot of pattern, but wearing printed leggings doesn’t have to be scary or overwhelming. No matter what print you choose to wear, keep the top simple and you will look great!

To pull off the printed legging trend all you need are some long, solid colored tops and sweaters. Once you have these basics, you can mix and match with as many different printed leggings as your heart desires.

We styled some looks to give you some inspiration on how to wear printed leggings:

Sweet and Sophisticated

Cheetah Print Leggings outfit

how to wear cheetah print leggingsCheetah print is a classic pattern that is making a huge comeback this season. This cheetah print brings together neutral colors which makes completing the outfit super simple, you can wear any color(s) you want! We styled these cheetah print leggings with an over-sized, long white top (available in select Glik’s stores), rust colored infinity scarf, and chestnut studded booties.

Boho Chic

How to wear aztec printed leggingsAztec printed leggings have a bohemian feel to them, so we paired ours with a loose fitting long t-shirt, moccasin booties, and an over-sized cardigan. Styling Aztec leggings is simple when you have some basic long t-shirts, sweaters, and cardigans.

Military Inspired

Wearing camo print doesn’t have to be tomboy-ish. Glam up the camo print by pairing it with an embellished sweater and layering on the jewels. We styled these camo leggings with a black embellished sweatshirt (available in select Glik’s stores), Roxy Newton combat boots, over-sized nude clutch (available in select Glik’s stores), and a mix of gold jewelry.

{Jeggings} Ways to Wear Them.

After knowing what jeggings are, and making the vow to find them in every color, you might need some tips on how to style them! There are several different looks that you can create with jeggings by pairing them with different styles of tops, footwear and accessories.

To Look Cool…
If you want to sport a cool, casual look, wear jeggings with a loose, long top. Wear a beaded necklace, a pair of ballet flats and carry an over-sized hobo bag. You can wear this look on the daily no matter if you heading to class or on your next trip to the market!

To Look Hot…
If you are blessed with a good figure, wear your jeggings with sky-high platform pumps, an statement clutch and a silk dolman top tucked in. If you are on the heavier side, wear an empire style top with your jeggings as it will give out the illusion of a thin waist!

To Look Trendy…
If you want to follow Hollywood, pair up your jeggings with knee-high boots, or if you are brave, thigh-high boots. Wear a long comfy v-neck tee and finish it off with a tailored blazer. This three layered look along with the super sexy boots will definitely make many heads turn in your direction!

To Look Sporty…
For those of you who want a casual, sporty look, pairing the jeggings with sneakers and a loose, long t-shirt or a cute sweatshirt is a good idea. Of course, you can always enhance this particular look by adding sneaks or tops in crazy colors or those displaying bold and comical quotes.

Kick off your weekend right and go grab a pair today!  Give yourself a complete fashion makeover, after all, who doesn’t love shopping? Visit a Glik’s store nearest you or shop online at www.gliks.com.

Jeggings: Where Leggings & Jeans Meet

Pick up almost any mag and you are sure to spot your favorite celebs showing off their sexy style in a pair of Jeggings.

Ladies it’s time to rid your closet of anything remotely similar to JNCO’s (yes, I said JNCO’s)! Super skinny is in and like it or not the cut is here to stay. If you haven’t scored a pair of jeggings yet, it’s time to celebrate your curves and make friends with this fashion staple.

As the name suggests, jeggings are a combination of leggings and jeans. They are constructed from legging-like material but fashioned to look like your favorite pair of jeans. Jeggings are typically made up of a cotton, polyester and spandex mix and can be found in a wide variety of colors and prints. Many agree that jeggings offer the best of both worlds!

The skinny, stretch material fits comfortably and looks equally fabulous on every gal! Jeggings can be worn with cardigans, blazers, and tunics. Don’t let Jeggings be intimidating, with the right stylizing, jeggings can work for anyone.

Remember, quality is of the utmost importance to ensure your jeggings maintain form and fit. Stop in your local Glik’s to try on a pair and find your favorite style! Our top sellers include Flying Monkey and Silver Jeans.

HOT TO WEAR: Jacquard Leggings, Lace Shorts Edition, Crop Tops, and Sequin Leggings!

A few hot items that we just got in from LA are fabulous… but are a little difficult to style. Don’t worry! In this How to Wear I will explain a few cute ways to rock these LA styles.

First up! The Jacquard legging, also known as the Navajo legging. These pants are not only warm, but also quite a statement! They are not to be confused with house pants or PJ’s; these are a fabulous substitute for your boring black leggings. However, they are a little more complicated to wear then plain leggings. They definitely have to be worn with a solid color, and I think a loose top looks best. These are perfect to tuck into combat boots, Ugg boots, and over the knee boots. If you have the courage they would look awesome with heels and a big loose top for a night out. I wore them with a black tank, loose grey dolman ‘Shark bite’ TOP, and combat boots.

Next are the lace shorts that were spotted on the legs of style icon Blake Lively and E News host, Giulana Rancic. Theirs were both Marchesa, with a price tag of over $1,000! But as always, at Glik’s we have the look for less. These black lace shorts look perfect with a white button down, black blazer, tights, and pumps. For a tougher, less professional look you could pair these with a band tee, leather jacket and combat boots. These shorts are totally fabulous no matter how you wear them.

Crop tops are tricky little guys. Unless you are doing an 80’s work out routine, you MUST wear a tank top under them. Shown here we paired our crop top with a black tank top and jeans. You could also wear it over a tight black mini dress for some layering, or a black high waisted skirt. Crop tops are a great thing to throw on to add a little sass to a plain outfit.

As I have said a million times before but SEQUINS ARE HOT! Another way to wear sequins (we’ve had tops and dresses already) is on leggings! These black sequin leggings are totally sparkly and fabulous… Lady Gaga style! For a casual look, wear with an oversized tee and combat boots. For a nighttime one, a loose t-shirt, blazer and pumps would be totally chic.

Well that’s everything! I hope that these suggestions help you figure out how to wear these fabulous items. You can find them online www.gliks.com or in select Glik’s stores.

HOT TO WEAR: Jacquard Leggings, Lace Shorts Edition, Crop Tops, and Sequin Leggings!

L.A. FAST FASHION: JUST IN TIME FOR THE HOLIDAYS!

THIS IS OUR LAST HOLIDAY INJECTION BEFORE 2011!

The Glik’s buying team just left the streets of downtown L.A. for the Midwest with orders of HOT HOT HOT holiday key trends for the remainder of 2010 and going into the new year of 2011. From Lace Shorts to Jacquard Leggings, Glik’s has it covered!!!!

First up are the party dresses. Everyone needs a huge selection of cocktail dresses this time of year, with all the holiday parties and dinners. One of the hottest trends that has been all over, is the one shoulder dress. Worn by celebrities like Kim and Kourtney Kardashian. Just like the girls we have a black and red one-shoulder dress, two colors that are huge during this time of year.

Our black one-shoulder dress has stud detailing around the waist. This rock-and-roll chic look will look fabulous worn with sheer black tights and pumps. Add a splash of color with a bright clutch or earrings.

Our red one shoulder dress has ruffles running down the side. For more of a feminine look, opt for this dress instead. Wear it like Kim does, with all black tights, heels and clutch. All that black will make the color pop! Whether it’s for a party, dinner, or a club this dress is a fabulous way to spice up your wardrobe.

What says fashion forward more than sequins or black sheer mesh? Both! This Sequin tunic has a racerback made of sheer black mesh and body of silver and black sequins. Both sequins and mesh are on every runway; get the designer look for less! Wear this out with jeans or leggings and a simple black blazer. For a trendy mature look for the season, pair the look with some peep-toe platforms and a statement watch.

Similar to the tunic, Glik’s also has a red and black sequin dress also with the mesh back. All you need to complete the look are black tights, a blazer and pumps!

As I have written about before, lace couldn’t be more on trend this season. It’s everywhere! Blake Lively was spotted wearing chic lace shorts. Her shorts were  made by the famous designer brand, Marchesa. The shorts retail for over $1,000! Luckily at Glik’s you can get this fabulous short with a reasonable price tag. Wear it like Blake with a low-cut black sweater, or even a white button down for a classier look.

Another trend that’s been in the works for a while is the crop-top. That’s right ladies and gents, the 80’s look is back and stronger than ever. We have a cropped hooded knit sweater that’s black and gray stripes. Another cropped sweater that we have is purple and black rugby stripes. Worn with a solid color tank top and jeans, this is a great look to rock for a more casual look. Crop-tops also look fabulous with a high-waisted skirt.

Another sweater Glik’s bought in L.A. is called the shark-bite sweater. Its called this because at the bottom of the sweater there is a chunk missing, with the two sides of the top hanging down. This is a great layering piece for winter. You can wear this sweater over dresses, high-waisted skirts, or a jeans/tank top combo.

Leggings are the perfect way to stay warm and fabulous during this upcoming winter. However, the simple black ones can get a little boring after a while. So… look no further! These Jacquard Sweater leggings are basically sweaters for your legs! They will look adorable tucked into UGGS and combat boots. Wear these leggings with a simple color on top. I think army green (break out that parka again!) and black would look best. These will make you stand out among the crowd of jeans and plain black leggings!

Last but not least, what better way to ring in the New Year than with a 2011 tee? This red slub (remember those from the last post??) reads 2011 across it in shiny black sequins. Wear it for New Years Eve or Day! For the Eve look, pair with shiny black leggings and pumps. For the Day wear the slub with black or dark wash denim and some warm boots. Also, if you’re graduating this year (like I am!) you can wear this tee forever. So much more fabulous then a simple class of ’11 tshirt!

Well that’s all! I know it’s a lot of fabulous clothing to take in, but it’s the Holidays! Its time to get dressed up and stay on trend. So whatever style you have, or whatever occasion you’re shopping for, Glik’s has something fresh from L.A. for you. Look online and in stores for these items.
