The Unofficial Father’s Day Uniform

header

Father’s Day is quickly approaching, which means you (or your dad, or your brother, or your uncle) need a fresh look within your summer wardrobe. Novelty print shirts are the answer to your fun, fresh, unique style and are so great for summer! The button up shirts can be dressed up or worn casually, all while showing off your sense of style! We carry so many different styles and colors of BBQ shirts that you will be sure to find the perfect one for a gift for Father’s Day, or for yourself!

Also a necessity for summer are flat front shorts.  Khaki shorts are a staple in summer style, but why not try to branch out and get a pair of colored flat front shorts? The clean design will be super stylish while kicking it up a notch with a pop of color in your wardrobe.  Flat front shorts pair perfectly with novelty button up shirts, so they definitely need to be purchased together! Check out our Glik’s exclusive brand 1897 for all of your wardrobe necessities.

Take a look at some of our picks for the unofficial Father’s Day uniform:

Women’s Summer Preview


1. Crop Tops & Denim Skirts

The dynamic duo for summer. There are so many styles of crop tops and denim skirts that there are endless possibilities and combinations.  Wear a knit crop top and sandals for a casual day look and change into a cropped blouse and heels for a night out! If you decide not to wear them together for a full look, crop tops and denim skirts definitely need to be in your summer wardrobe regardless.

2. Wrap Tops & Dresses

You can find us in this look allllll summer long! Just look how fun and flirty these are! The wrap style silhouette is adjustable and super flattering, and it adds a bit of feminine flare to your look without going overboard. Ruffles are also super cute touch to these styles. From tops, rompers, and mini or maxi dresses, you will continue to see the wrap style everywhere.

3. High Waist Shorts

We never want the high rise trend to end. From denim shorts to linen shorts, solids to prints, we want them all! Since the shorts sit high above your hips, they are comfy, flattering, and elongate your legs. Winner! Dress these shorts up with a printed blouse, or dress them casual with a basic tank or tee.

4. Espadrilles & Flatforms

Let your toes be free! Espadrilles and flatforms are out in full force this summer and we couldn’t be more into it. Flatforms are super comfortable, but are also versatile and add height to your look! Trust us when we say you can’t have too many pairs of neutral slides and platforms to rotate within your summer wardrobe.

1. Basic Tees & Flat Front Shorts

Guys, now is the time to stock up on basic and graphic tees.  Basic tshirts are such a great investment since you can literally wear them year round! Plus, you can’t go wrong with a basic striped tee and flat front shorts look.

2. Novelty Shirts & Volley SHorts

If you are anything but basic, you guys need to grab yourself a novelty print shirt (or two) for summer. Wild and bold prints are so fun for summer while the tailored button up shirt design dresses up the look a bit.  Pair them with some comfy volley shorts and your favorite flip flops and your summer uniform is complete.

3. Trucker Hats

Trucker hats are also on trend for summer! (And year-round in our eyes) With so many brands and styles to choose from, Glik’s has got your man covered. Get rid of that dirty old baseball cap this summer and buy a nice, clean trucker hat to complete your casual looks.

Outfit of the Day Inspiration

We love when our customers and sales associates share their Glik’s style with us. So, each month we will choose a trend and have our sales associates style it out to show off their different styles. Check out some of the styles we received in March and April!

March Men’s Outfits | BBQ Shirts

For the month of March, our favorite trend was BBQ Shirts for men. We thought the one who wore it the best was our Chairman, Mr. Glik. Although, all of our guy associates rocked this look, it’s hard to beat Mr. Glik!BBQ Shirts

March Women’s Outfits | Off the SHOULDER

For the month of March, our favorite trend for Women was off the shoulder tops and dresses. Our sales associate Paige from our Jasper Glik’s location was voted best to wear an off the shoulder top! Off the shoulder tops and dresses look great on just about anyone and are always fun to style!Off the Shoulder

“Since working at Glik’s, I have really developed my own personal style. In my OOTD photo I was wearing a white off the shoulder Poof top, with a brick colored bralette underneath. I love all of the lace detail on the high neck bralettes, and think they really helped tie together my look. I wore dark washed Flying Monkeys because these are my go to jeans. If you can go comfortable AND stylish that’s always a win in my book! For footwear I had on a pair of City Classified peep toed booties. The taupe canvas with the wooden accent on the heel really helped dress up the entire outfit. To accessorize, I had on a beaded necklace that I chose to style as a layered choker.” – Paige

April Men’s Outfits | Novelty Shirts

For the month of April, our favorite trend was novelty shirts for men. Our fearless leader, CEO, Jeff Glik, took the lead for wearing the best novelty shirt. He styled it with a fun hat and matching Yeti. Although, Jeff got us with his tropical vibes, I think Chad really rocked his dinosaur shirt!Novelty Shirts

April Women’s Outfits | Piko Tops and Dresses

For the month of April, our favorite trend for Women was Piko tops and dresses. Our sales associate Jess from our Vincennes Glik’s location was voted best to style a Piko. If you don’t have a Piko top or dress then I highly recommend investing in one. You will love it! Piko

“I love the Piko because it is so effortless to layer and dress up. Of course, bralettes are everything right now, so adding one to an outfit with a basic tee really makes it a little more special. I am so in love with floral prints this season, so I couldn’t resist the Sweet Claire kimono. Adding a cute pair of KanCans and some peep toes is just the icing on the cake!” – Jess
