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.

vervet look 1

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!?

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.

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!

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!

jumpers

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.)

We hope you enjoy our favorite trends from the season just us much as we do! Stay tuned for new arrivals each week 🙂 Or, shop these trends now at gliks.com!

Our Favorite Trends of the Season

Five Looks with One Key Piece: The Love Stitch Button Down

header

As the seasons change, it can be hard to find core pieces in your wardrobe that you are able to style year round.  So, we decided to help you out a bit by showing you FIVE different looks with ONE key piece! The item on topic is the Love Stitch Clothing Striped Chambray Button Down Top.  Button downs and vertical stripes are super trendy and stylish, so combined they make the perfect pair! Keep reading to see how we styled this shirt five different ways! (P.S. In our opinion, we think all of these items should be core pieces in your wardrobe!)

1. Wear Alone with Denim & Sandals

1

This first outfit is great for those casual spring days and cool summer nights.  Button up this Love Stitch striped top and roll up your sleeves for some laid back vibes.  Every girl needs a durable pair of denim jeans in her closet, so why not opt for a pair of KanCan Jeans? These are the KanCan Jeans Railroad Stripe Ankle Detail in Medium Wash.  Keeping things on the casual route, we thought these Mia Shoes strappy sandals were perfect! The neutral coloring and comfort footbed make these sandals great to wear all day, every day. Depending on your style, finish off the look with a lace bralette and some basic jewelry and you are all set.

2. Wear under Overalls with Heeled Booties.

4

This next look can also go dressy or casual, depending on your plans! Overalls are totally making a comeback and we are all for it! Pairing the Love Stitch Clothing Striped Chambray Button Down Top underneath these distressed overalls makes for a super chic outfit. We paired the look with a pair of ankle booties from My Delicious Shoes! The vertical stripes and heeled booties elevate your look and give you a taller appearance. To dress down the look, try wearing a pair of Converse sneakers or flat sandals. Since we love the criss cross trend, try unbuttoning the Love Stitch shirt a little, wear this strappy tank top, and unbuckle one of the straps from the overalls!

3. Layer Over Basic Tee with Denim & Mules.

2

This third look with your key piece item is our favorite! Keeping the striped shirt open gives the look a little edge and enhances your possibilities! Now you are able to show off all of your basic or graphic tees! We paired this look with a criss cross top from Lime N Chili and KanCan jeans. Mules are also super fashionable right now, so the Qupid Shoes Tuxedo Mules just stood out to us! If you are wearing this look while taking a walk around the park or while shopping, change it up by tying your button down shirt around your waist and you’ve got a whole new look.

4. Wear with Denim Skirt & Peep Toe Heels.

5

Now, this look will be able to take you into the night in style.  The neutral, chambray coloring and vertical stripes already dress this look up.  By pairing it with this black denim skirt from KanCan, you’ll be ready for a night out in no time!  Depending on the look you are trying to achieve, roll the sleeves up or down and tuck in the shirt to your skirt. Add some statement earrings and a lace bralette and you’ve got your fourth outfit in the bag.  To dress this look up even more, rock this pair of peep toe heels by Qupid Shoes! The tall chunky heel and elastic vamp are sure to hold up while you are dancing the night away.

5. Layer Under Cardigan with Denim & Boots.

3

This last look is perfect for cold winter or fall days when you still want to be stylish. Start off with your base, a strappy basic tank top.  Then, put on your striped button down top from Love Stitch and button it all the way up or keep it open (whichever you prefer). Lastly, slip on this cozy chunky cardigan from Wishlist. Layers layers layers is the name of the game when it comes to cold weather, so why sacrifice warmth for style? With this look, you can achieve both! End the look with a pair of neutral ankle boots, like these from Qupid Shoes, and you are ready to tackle the day with your head held high.

The Print of the Season: The Vertical Stripe

Untitled design (1)

Nautical stripes were all the rage in 2017, but in 2018 we are changing directions, literally, with vertical stripes. Be ready to want a pinstripe pattern in at least three different styles this spring! Whether the classic collared, the front tie, the off the shoulder, or the flirty jumper, we have all the styles at Gliks and we are dying to share with you what we think will be one of the classiest looks this season.

One of the best things about a striped shirt is that it is a neutral style and color, so it can go with whatever you pair it with. So go ahead and wear it with your burgundy moto leggings, your dark wash denim, your light wash denim, or your classic boyfriend jeans. For a stand out look, try mixing it with other patterns, like a pair of printed shorts or with your floral embroidered jeans or skirt.

Screen shot 2018-01-16 at 12.00.13 PMScreen shot 2018-01-16 at 12.00.58 PM

Since this is a neutral for your wardrobe, you can wear the vertical stripe with your brown suede booties, or your black strappy sandals. Also, try wearing whatever odd colors of shoes you have stashed in the back of your closet, time to break ’em out since there is officially something to match them with! Basically, the striped shirt is a dream come true in the mornings when you want to throw some clothes on but don’t want to waste the effort of finding all the “right” things to match with it. Now everything is fair game!
Screen shot 2018-01-16 at 12.02.10 PMTo make the striped shirt even better, it’s one of the most flattering prints. The vertical stripes create a small optical illusion to make us all a little taller and a little leaner. This style will help us get those New Years Resolutions bods we swore we’d get this year.
Screen shot 2018-01-18 at 1.45.42 PM Screen shot 2018-01-18 at 1.44.55 PM

What ever style of the vertical stripe you decide to try, it’ll be a versatile addition to your wardrobe. So go ahead, ‘add to cart’ with the guilt free knowledge that the stripe pattern will be your new favorite print of the season.

It’s Sweater Weather Y’all

elan-cold-shoulder-sweater-gray-sw1506There is something about fall and the weather changing that just makes us want to dress for the season. Maybe it’s the leaves on the ground or the chili mornings that makes us wake up and sip on our hot coffee. Either way, we will most likely be wearing a sweater!

This year it is all about the chunky, oversized sweaters. Stay trendy this season by trying different necklines with your sweaters. Some of our favorite necklines this year include cowl, turtleneck, keyhole, and crisscross. Another trend that is hot this season is the cold shoulder and off the shoulder look. Although it’s not ideal for the colder weather, it is an adorable look that you just can’t pass up!

The Chunky Sweaterunspecified

The bigger the better! We all have our favorite sweaters and a chunky sweater is mine! Something about the oversized fit that just makes wearing chunky cable knit sweaters that much more comfortable. These oversized sweaters are perfect for pairing with your favorite skinny jeans. Take comfy to an extreme and wear it with leggings this season! Stay trendy and try a little half tuck in the front of your skinny jeans for a chic look that shows off the waist definition.

The Cowl Neck Sweatercarys-fringe-sweater

Sometimes the big chunky sweaters aren’t for everyone! You can always try a lightweight sweater that features different necklines. One of my favorite necklines is the cowl neck. The cowl neck is loose and breathable which is the perfect mix of laid-back and trendy.

The Cold Shoulder Sweaterelan-cold-shoulder-life-sw1210-charcoal

Don’t let the cold stop you from being trendy this season! Cold shoulder tops are a hot item this year and they have now made it in a sweater. My favorite cold shoulder sweater this year is from Elan. It features a lightweight knit material that is flowy making the perfect fit for anyone! Cold shoulder sweaters are perfect for the transition from season to season. Add one to your closet TODAY!

Fringe | Looking Ahead to Fall 2015

Fringe has been an inescapable trend since the early 1920’s and looking ahead to fall 2015, fringe is coming full force. For the upcoming season, it has undoubtedly evolved into a modern look that can be found on shoes, apparel, accessories, and more. Yes, it can feel a bit intimidating to try and rock a trend with so much personality, but I’ve got you covered with a few essential pieces from Glik’s.

Love Stitch Carys Love Stitch Carys Love Stitch Carys Love Stitch Carys Love Stitch Carys

If you’re feeling hesitant, the key to getting comfortable with this trend is to invest in garments that feel fun, yet sophisticated like our Love Stitch Carys Fringed Shawl Sweater. Not only is it a great piece for layering, but it allows you to try the trend without feeling too costumey.

Fringe Skirt Fringe Skirt

If you’re feeling a bit more bold, a fringe skirt is something to embrace. What I love about these skirts from Glik’s is the versatility that they offer. You can let your skirt do the talking and pair it with an understated button up or you can take your look to another level by wearing a fringe skirt with a statement sweater.

Fringe footwear Fringe boot Fringe shoe

If you’re looking to try this trend in a smaller dose, fringe footwear is a way to easily clinch your fall outfit game. I suggest our Soda Shoes Jervis Fringe Closed Toe Booties because not only are they comfortable, but they can also add a touch of personality to a simple outfit.

Fringe purse

Another definite keeper is this Mini Fringe Backpack Purse. Both functional and trendy, I love this piece because it is effortlessly cool and incredibly fun.

Now, my friends, I hope you take your newfound knowledge and get excited about incorporating the classic fringe trend into your fall wardrobe. Don’t forget, as always, you can shop these pieces and more on our website.

Meet the Owner of Love Stitch Clothing: Danny Foruzesh

loves stitch logo

Meet Danny Foruzesh, the owner of the L.A. based clothing brand, Love Stitch. With innovative designs and quality construction, Love Stitch provides consumers high-quality fashion at a great price. Their breathtaking in-house prints, unique construction techniques, and quality fabrics continually spellbound us. Glik’s had the pleasure of sitting down and talking with Mr. Foruzesh about the Love Stitch brand, their journey, and what’s to come.

How did Love Stitch Clothing start?

We’ve been in business for about 30 years. Before, we had another label called “Aziz,” which was a junior brand. Just through the course of us doing business, we got tired of working through the junior retailers because they weren’t appreciating what we were bringing to the table. So we decided to restructure our business and come up with a new label. Now we concentrate more on boutiques, and it has allowed us to be more creative and do what we do best, which is bringing good quality product to customers that can really appreciate what we are making.

Where does the inspiration for your pieces come from?

We have a great design staff that understands the direction of what we want to do. We do a lot of Internet searching, shopping, traveling and that’s where most of our inspiration comes from.

What do you feel sets Love Stitch Clothing apart from other brands?

I think we bring a true perceived value of what garments are worth. We felt that when shopping the market, a lot of brands were charging a little too much than what the garments were actually worth. So we figured there was a niche where we could do the same thing–just as good, but bring it to the price level where it benefits the consumer.

love stitch oversitch saztec sweaterWhat does fashion mean to you?

It’s a way of life. I think it’s a way of self-expression. A person has the ability to really express who they are through the way their clothes and accessories are put together.

What is your current favorite Love Stitch Clothing piece?

We have this amazing poncho that’s very tribal, and I think it’s a very well executed piece. It has an amazing boho feel that we strive to achieve. IMP5640 is the style number.

What can we expect from Love Stitch next year as far as new developments?

The majority of our own prints are actually in-house designed. I’m very excited about the new print line that we’ve been able to come up with for the spring. It’s well executed and I think it sets us apart from the rest because it’s not a market print. We are actually taking the time to come up with our own concepts.

Trend Alert: The Coatigan

If there’s one trend you try this season, it must be the Coatigan trend! What is a Coatigan you might ask? Well, it’s the brilliant idea of a coat and cardigan hybrid. The Coatigan is designed for the trendy chick that still needs to stay warm but wants to continuously look fashionable. These open fly-away cardigans are virtually replacing the coat this season.

Love Stitch Coatigan

Coatigans come in many different shapes, sizes, and colors. We carry amazing brands such as Elan, Jack and BB Dakota, and Love Stitch that have designed Coatigans with fun prints and patterns. An Aztec or southwestern print is great for your fall look.
