What to Wear on a Fall Date

header

Oh the crisp, cool weather has finally arrived. That means it’s finally an appropriate time to bring out all things autumn and start thinking about those fun fall date ideas! Whether you’re going to grab coffee and donuts, go pumpkin picking and get lost in the corn maze, visit a haunted house, or attend a football game, your outfit has got to be ON POINT. So, guys and gals, we are here to give you a lead on what to wear for any of these occasions!

////Let’s start with the ladies…

Fall weather means light (or in some cases heavy) layers and cozy fabrics.  We have been receiving SO many cute and comfortable (and affordable!) sweaters lately, that it is so hard to just choose one or two.  With styles from brands like Wishlist, Lovestitch, Elan, and Miracle, you’ll be sure to find a few that fit what you’re searching for! With sweater trends being so big right now, you may be feeling a little overwhelmed. THAT’S NORMAL.

Our favorites right now are buttery soft cardigans and light thermal shirts.  The cardigans are great to wear over leggings and fashion sneakers by pairing with your favorite graphic tee underneath OR dress it up by wearing a bodysuit, your Kancan denim jeans, and heeled booties! Thermal shirts are all the rave right now, so if you don’t already have one you definitely need to purchase yourself one right now! Waffle knit thermal shirts are a great basic that give a little more edge with the textured fabric.  The best part about our button down thermal shirt from Wishlist right now is that you can also wear it as a cardigan, SCORE!

When it comes to shoes and accessories, autumn is when it is time to shine.  The key is to find the most versatile, and comfortable, pair of boots or booties that will look fabulous with all of the sweaters you’re about to buy. 😉 And, you’re in luck because the shoe styles just keep rolling in and we are so in love with everything we have in stock right now! Depending on which type of date (day or night) you’re adventuring on, complete your look with accessories! Don’t be afraid to mix and match bralettes, beanies, scarves, and jewelry!

////And for the fellas…

Guys, we have to apologize to you for a sec. Every girl will tell you that, “guys have it easy when it comes to fashion!” Although that may be partially true, you men have a lot of expectations to live up to, especially when it comes to fall style! We are here to tell you exactly what to wear (so you aren’t panicking about what to wear 10 minutes before you have to pick up your date).

Invest in a few quality, flannel, button down shirts. These will soon be your favorite clothing item (besides that beloved pair of gym shorts you’ve had for years). If it’s chilly outside, layer up with a fashionable vest or sweater! You will receive style points, we promise. A nice, well fitting pair of denim will go a long way.  Check out the many denim jean styles we have for men from 1897 Denim, Silver Jeans, and Axel Jeans! Complete the look with a nice pair of brown boots, a leather belt, and a watch, and you’re ready to enjoy your date with confidence!

Our Favorite Trends of the Season

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!

Meet the Owner of Love Stitch Clothing: Danny Foruzesh

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.
