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.

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!

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.

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.

The Main Strip Frayed Vneck Sweater

Screen shot 2018-01-08 at 2.17.53 PMScreen shot 2018-01-09 at 4.06.08 PMOkay, so winter may not be my favorite season, but there is always one thing that I love about cold days, and that’s the sweater options! There is something almost magical about getting a new sweater and the Main Strip Frayed Vneck Sweater is a sweater that I have been absolutely smitten with since the first time laid eyes on it. This frayed cropped sweater comes in mustard, grey, mauve, and ivory, which are all beautiful muted tones that go well with whatever shoes, pants, or jeans you can think to wear them with. Definitely one of my favorite things about this sweater is how many things I can wear it with and feel like am an actual vogue-fashionista-model. This sweater makes it easy to look cute and it is the kind of comfy feel-good sweater that you naturally gravitate to!

Screen shot 2018-01-08 at 2.19.01 PM

Another major plus about this sweater is that it can be transitioned into all the seasonal outfits you can think of. Right now I like to wear it with my black ripped Silver denim and throw on my Levi’s denim jacket for a little more edge (and maybe a CC Beanie for a little more warmth)! For a relaxed lazy weekend look, I love this sweater with my high waisted light washed denim and some fuzzy socks when I hang out at my friends’ homes. But as soon as the weather warms up, I cannot wait to style this sweater with a bralette, a faux suede taupe skirt, and ankle booties, for a look to wear at the office or a casual night out!

The Main Strip Frayed Vneck Sweater is the kind of quintessential piece for your wardrobe! No matter what the temperature may be outside this sweater will be there for any look. Now sweater weather can officially last forever (maybe without the cold weather part though).  To shop these looks be sure to head to!

Booties to Step You into Spring

We can’t wait for warmer weather! And we cannot wait to transition these super cute booties out of our winter wardrobe and into our spring looks. The best thing about these booties is that while the weather is still cold we can wear them while we wait for Springy-er days (sigh).


The Qupid Prenton Perforated Ankle Booties

These faux leather shoes with an oil finish are an awesome option for every day wear, whether to school or work. The cut out sides are perfect for showing off your frayed hem jeans. We love these shoes because they have major casual boho vibes! They are definitely the kind of shoe you throw on with your chunky sweater but also wear with your romper to see your favorite artist in concert. You can get these laid-back booties in Taupe or Black.


The Qupid Prenton Woven Ankle Booties

These shoes have a chunky stacked heel and trendy almond toe design. The Prenton Woven Ankle has a stunning intertwined design on the leatherette uppers. You can easily throw these shoes on and off with the hook and loop fastener strap design. We love these shoes because they have a super unique design, you will want to wear these with your favorite denim all the time. But no matter what you decide to wear with these shoes, they will help make your outfit unique and distinctive! You can get these trendsetting shoes in either a Light Grey or a Taupe color.


The Qupid Tuxedo Laser Cut Ballerina Ankle Booties

These shoes are the kind of things dreams are made of! The laser cut detailing on this shoe is some beautiful attention to detail. With a low cut style that looks wonderful with your distressed jeans. Or imagine it with a lightweight Piko dress to wear on warmer days out. We love these shoes because they are not super “heeled” like other booties for days you don’t feel like adding the extra height to your look. These booties have a dainty “ballerina shoe” feel to them, so you can feel as lightweight as these shoes when you wear them out. You can get the Qupid Tuxedo Laser Cut Ballerina Ankle Booties in a rich Nutmeg color or in an elegant Black color. Both practical and chic, these booties are a great option for the transition into the spring!

Any of these three shoes will help you take the cold steps into your spring looks. These are just some of the booties we have been crushing on lately, for even more booties check out our site at!

Street Chic: Men’s Jogger Pants

Men’s fashion joggers hit the runways in many 2013 Spring Collections and are now mainstream ready-to-wear pants. These popular pants  worn by celebrities like Justin Timberlake, Justin Beiber, and Chris Brown come in an assortment of styles. Glik’s offers this comfy trend in two edgy brands: Brooklyn Cloth and Galaxy.

Wondering how these amazing pants came about? The baggy bottoms and tapered ankles originated in the Arabian Peninsula. The Disney character Aladdin even wore harem pants, and if you’ve seen the classic cartoon, you know he got around with the greatest of ease in his baggy pants. A more modern style came along when M.C. Hammer, the parachute pant wearing rapper, hit the scene in the early 90’s. The look fell off the map for about 20 years but has been popularized again with better materials and a more subtle fit. The styles available now aren’t only for hip hop moguls but for every guy who wants to be fashion forward and comfortable.

How you wear these pants is what will disassociate you from the guys that wear these only for athletic purposes. Styling these harem bottoms is easy. Pairing them with the right pieces will help you avoid looking like you just left the gym.


Game On

This look features the Brooklyn Cloth’s men’s knit jogger pants. With just a t-shirt and your favorite street shoe you’re ready for baseball’s opening game day at Busch Stadium.

Color Pop


Menswear usually features muted colors but you can always add a punch of color to your gear. Try this 1897 t-shirt with the color-pop ethnic print pocket and a pair of statement shoes.

Street Chic


You can never go wrong with a simplistic style. The cuff on the ankles of the Galaxy brand pants allow you to style these in different ways. Wear them as full length pants or scrunch them into a cropped style with a pair of hi-tops. (Air Jordan’s available at select Glik’s)

Joggers can be paired with a men’s button down and tee for a nice dash of style.

{Neon} Blinded By The Bright.

If there was one predominant trend saturating the runway during Fashion Week in New York, it had to be NEON. Vibrant colors in general are huge for Spring 2012, but the hues most designers fell in love with were bright and bold NEON’S. Although neon is often used as an accent color, this season you will find neon tops, neon dresses, neon skirts, neon shoes, and neon accessories.

So say hello to the 80’s because they are officially back! Okay, so you haven’t sported neon in over 20 years? Worried about looking as though you stepped out of a Boy George video? All you need to do is work these colors in your outfits properly, so it looks interesting and not too flamboyant. We have you covered!

Neon Fashion Tip #1: Start Off Small

If you are a little uneasy as to how to work these bright colors in your closet, why not start off small? Work a bright pink neon tank into your casual Friday look, or wear neon colored jewelry to your trustworthy black attire. For example, wearing a sexy little black dress tonight? Skip the basic black pumps and work in neon blue pumps. Wearing neon colored accessories will add a hint of color and personality to any outfit. For even a smaller start, paint on some summer color on your nails instead of the normal pales and pastels.

Neon Fashion Tip #2: Shy Away From Accessories

When you are wearing a brightly colored fluorescent top, it is typically protocol to keep the accessories minimal. Bright clothing with overly bright accessories will look too chaotic. Another good tip is to avoid matching the same accessory color with the same color in your outfit. Stay away from neon orange jewelry, shoes or purses when you’re already wearing a neon orange dress. Simple!

Neon Fashion Tip #3: Bring in the Neutral Colors

When wearing a bright colored shirt or a bright colored skirt, it is best to try to pair the item with a neutral color. Don’t try to work a neon top with a neon bottom. Instead wear neon bottoms with a white blouse. Black also looks super fab with vibrant hues. When you’re wearing a neon pink dress, work in your favorite black pumps or sandals instead of wearing pink on your tootsies. The neutral colors will help balance out your look.

Depending on your body shape, neon can be less attention grabbing on either the bottom or the top. Experts recommend trying out several different styles and colors before deciding on what works best on you!

Remember: Don’t be afraid of color embrace it! Color can be very flirty and fun, so start shopping! There are many ways to work neon into your closet; check out a Glik’s store nearest you or for the hottest new styles of neon.

{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
