Basic & Graphic Tees Your Closet Needs

header

With athleisure and casual wear being so in and fashionable right now, it’s important to stock up on some basic and graphic tees! They are so versatile and cute, that people won’t even realize you are just wearing a t-shirt! So many different brands are putting their own spin on basic and graphic tees, that it is so hard to choose just one. Some of our favorites are from Vanilla Bay, PIKO, Friday + Saturday, and Lime N Chili (to name a few!).

Your year-round wardrobe definitely needs a couple tees to choose from and rotate through throughout the seasons. A basic solid colored tee, a basic striped tee, and a fun graphic tee are completely worthy of a spot in your closet! (You can thank us later.) These are styles that can take you from work or school to dinner and a night out in no time.

friday saturday

The greatest thing about basic & graphic tshirts is that you can style them in so many different ways to suite your overall taste, and depending on what your plans are for the day.  They are 100% a staple for your closet, in our opinion! We know you are probably thinking, “How can something so simple and comfy be transformed into a trendy and sophisticated outfit?” Well, since they can be worn alone with jeans and sneakers, worn alone with dark wash denim and heeled booties, or layered under your favorite jackets, cardigans, and kimonos, it is so simple to dress these tops up and add some interest to your overall facade.

basics

For example, throw on a basic tee and wear it casual with leggings, a lightweight long cardigan, and flats or fashion sneakers and you are ready to run errands or attend class. Dress it up by putting on your favorite graphic tee, some destructed denim jeans, heels, and a blazer and you are ready for dinner or a date!

How to Create the Perfect Spring Capsule Wardrobe

How to make the perfect capsule wardrobe (1)

Don’t know what a capsule wardrobe is? Fundamentally, it is a minimalist approach to the things you keep in your closet. It’s trying to get more neutrals in your closet and less of those pieces that you can never seem to match with anything, besides that one skirt that you don’t even like that much. It will also help you save a little time and money by helping you figure out what you need to buy and skipping all the things that don’t really have a place for in your closet. At Gliks we have some items that are on trend, but are also basic essentials for the entirety of the spring season.

Capsule Wardrobe

To help you have the best spring capsule wardrobe possible, we found the 16 items that we think your closet cannot go without! For a little consistency we stuck to a color palette of about four different colors in various shades. However, many of these clothing items we listed come in a variety of colors and styles, so this capsule wardrobe can totally be adapted to fit your personal taste!

SHOP THE TOPCapsule Wardrobe (8)

Fate Clothing Off the Shoulder Striped Top | Jack By BB Dakota Delle Flare Sleeve Top | Elan Clothing Fray Hem Button Front Top

There are four trends that are going to be very pronounced in 2018. These trends are off the shoulder, stripes, flare sleeves, and button ups. We found 3 shirts that incorporate all these trends, in a subtle but chic way. These shirts are lightweight so they will be perfect for warm days, or you can layer over them with a warmer jacket for the colder days.

Capsule Wardrobe (9)

Piko Tops V-Neck Short Sleeve Shirt | Lime N Chili Criss Cross Short Sleeve Top

Everyone needs a comfy throw on tee for the days that you do not want to try and put together the perfect outfit ( but in our opinion jeans and a tee is the perfect outfit 🙂 ). Plus, these tees will look great under your overalls, with your denim skirts, or with a denim jacket. We definitely recommend having a tee that has a looser fit and you feel totally comfortable in. You can dress the right basic tee up or keep it casual.

ESSENTIALS IN BOTTOMS

KanCan Jeans Flare Highrise | Flying Monkey Jeans Twist-Seam Hem Skinny Jeans | KanCan Jeans Distressed Long Overalls

We are so happy that flare jeans and overalls are making a comeback! These flare jeans by KanCan are highwaisted, making them a comfortable fit for everyday wear and they will pair effortlessly with your shorter cropped tops. Everyone needs a good pair of medium wash denim in their closet. We personally love the twist-hem step hem jeans from Flying Monkey and they have an ankle crop fit, which makes them perfect for showing off your strappy sandals! At Gliks we have an array of overalls to choose from, but black overalls leave you with a neutral base that will naturally match with anything in your closet!

DRESSES ARE A GIRLS BFFCapsule Wardrobe (4)

Piko Dresses Short Sleeve Swing Dress With Pockets Jack By BB Dakota Off the Shoulder Dress | Everly Clothing Striped Midi Dress

One of our favorite things about spring is that it finally is warm enough for dresses. These three dresses incorporate some of those hot trends like off the shoulder, ruffles, and stripes. The Piko dress is a casual dress that will be perfect to throw on whenever you need something simple. The Off the Shoulder dress by BB Dakota has a slightly fancier vibe but its jersey knit fabric makes it a comfortable fit for everyday wear. The striped pattern of the Everly Clothing Striped Midi Dress gives you a fashionable option with the perfect length, stopping just below the knee. The best part of all these dresses is that they can easily be dressed up or down to fit whatever occasion you need.

THE OUTERWEAR

Capsule Wardrobe (7)

Elan Clothing Ruffle Shoulder Denim Jacket | Jack By BB Dakota Laren Vegan Leather Moto Jacket

For colder days, we found the two jackets that you absolutely need. These neutral outerwear options will go over every outfit! We love the ruffle denim jacket by Elan Clothing. It has a shorter fit, so it will look ah-ma-zing over your dresses or overalls. The vegan leather moto jacket by Jack By BB Dakota is made out of the softest faux leather material. We love this lighter colored leather jacket option for spring days and it will be perfect for nights out over your basic tee and ankle length jeans.

THE FOOTWEAR

Capsule Wardrobe (6)

Qupid Shoes Tuxedo Flats with Heel Strap | Outwoods Bork Diagonal Strap Sandals Qupid Shoes Core Perforated Peep Toe Heels

Now for the footwear options for your capsule wardrobe! Here are three pairs of shoes that will pull together all your spring looks. The Tuxedo shoe is an essential to your footwear collection, offering a comfortable footbed and covered vamp ballerina shoe design will look flawless for your everyday ensembles. Strappy sandals are essential to any spring outfit and in the color rose gold it will add a little bling to your looks. The peep toe heel is a fashionable option that will be great for dressing up any of your outfit combinations.

Just In: New Styles of Piko Tops and Dresses

If you’re just as obsessed with Piko tops and dresses, then Glik’s newest arrivals will have you doing a happy dance! These brand new styles are equally as comfortable as your already beloved Piko tops and come in brand new cuts and colors!

Piko tops

I’ll be frank; there have been times when I’ve asked myself, staring at my closet, “How many Piko shirts do you really need?” That question becomes easier to answer with every new style of Piko dress or shirt we receive. I. Need. All. Of. Them.

The Piko tunic is basic enough that you can pile on accessories, or it can look just as chic paired with a simple choker and topknot. You can also opt to wear a bralette underneath to add a little more coverage.

piko dresses

If you’re into the oversized look, you could style one of these dresses as a top. Simply throw on your Piko with skinny jeans, tuck in the front, and viola! Look at you, stepping outside the style box.

There’s not a single style of Piko that disappoints. From the keyhole tops, to criss cross dresses, to basic Piko tops and dresses, there’s a fit that works for every body!

Fall Fashion Finds Under $50

fall fashion under $50

Another season, another chance to vamp up your wardrobe!

With the official beginning of fall coming in a few short weeks, it’s time to find pieces you’ll want to wear all season long. Thankfully, bringing new life to your closet doesn’t mean you have to break the bank. I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite must-have pieces that are all under $50. Feel free to do a little happy dance.

It’s time to bust out the booties! There are two major factors to consider when buying a new pair of ankle boots: color and comfort. Taupe, black, and brown are three colors that you’ll get a ton of wear out of this season and next.

As the temperatures drop, you’ll need a good pair of jeans in your rotation. KanCan Jeans are not only affordable, but they also fit like a dream! At only $39 for most styles, consider adding a pair of mid-rise and low-rise  skinnies to your denim collection.

Nothing says fall fashion like a Piko top! There are so many colors and styles to choose from at Glik’s, but this burgundy tunic is one of my favorites for autumn.

Is it really even fall if you’re not wearing a vest? My all time favorite quilted vests are from Thread and Supply. The quality of these vests is amazing for the price point and the selection of colors makes it impossible to choose just one!

 It’s not all about bundling up this season, especially at the start. I love this olive green dress from Blu Pepper. The lace up neckline is perfectly on-trend, plus it’s a style steal at only $39.

Lastly, accessories are just as important as your outfit itself. My favorites for fall include CC Beanies, a cute plaid scarf, a lace bralette, and a black choker necklace. Any of of theses pieces will instantly elevate your #ootd.

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

“A Mother is she who can take the place of all others but whose place no one else can take”


With Mother’s Day approaching, it’s time to think about what to get the woman who has been there for you since day one.  Forget about flowers since they will only last a week, at most.  Get mom something that she will be able to cherish much longer.

Here are a few Mother’s Day gift ideas that we love:

Love Stitch Fringed Shawl Sweater: love stitch clothing

This is the perfect sweater for a mom who loves a cute layered look. This sweater can easily be styled with a basic cami and simple necklace or worn over a denim shirt for a fashionable look. These fringe sweaters also look cute when worn with either jeans or leggings.  The best part is that it’s crafted with a lightweight fabric and easily transitions from season to season. You can find a wide selection of colors here on our website.

Piko Topspiko tops

Piko tops are undoubtedly one of those most comfortable brand of tops ever made.  They come in so many different styles and colors, so they are super versatile and can be dressed up or down.  Don’t be discouraged about the oversized fit of these tops.  They can be styled in a variety of ways so they are flattering on just about everyone!  Mom definitely needs a few of these in her closet!

Elan Cold Shoulder Tops:

elan_clothing

These are the perfect tops for a mom who is a fashionista!  Cold shoulder tops look great when styled with a pair of skinny jeans and wedges for a more dressy look. She can also pair either of these cute shirts with shorts and a flat sandal for more casual occasions.

Alex and Ani Bracelets:

alex and ani mother's day braceletsIf clothes aren’t necessarily your mom’s thing, jewelry is a great alternative.  Alex and Ani offers a great selection of Mother’s Day bracelets. Choose from the Mom Color Infusion Swarovski Set, the Unbreakable Bond set or a Mom Charm Bangle.  With such sweet meanings, any mom would love to get one of these on her special day.  As an added bonus, there’s no need to worry about what size to buy because these bracelets are one size fits all!

And while we’re sure that your mom would love any of these Mother’s Day gift ideas, we’re equally as sure that she also wants to spend some quality time with you! Presents are wonderful… but presents and dinner are the way to go.

Bohemian Style |Wild and Free|

From Vanessa Hudgens to Kate Hudson to your favorite fashion blogger on Instagram, every free-spirited babe is rocking the boho chic look this spring. If your inner hippie is begging to be let loose when you see boho looks, don’t be afraid to let her out to play!

Printed pants are the piece to try if you want to dip your toes in the tie-dye water without fully submerging yourself in a boho look.

bohemian_style

A printed pant can put off a laid-back flower-child vibe without giving the appearance of trying too hard. Take a nod from gypsy queen Kate and style a relaxed fitting pair with a solid colored Piko top, beaded necklace and round sunglasses. Complete your look with strappy gladiator sandals on your feet and loose beachy waves in your hair.

bohemian style

Flared printed pants paired with an off the shoulder shirt can also help you embrace your inner boho chic fashionista. A solid colored top can easily balance out intricately patterned bottoms. Don’t forget to add long, layered necklaces and platform sandals for a bohemian style look that’s Instagram worthy.

If you’re like me, you’re probably now head over (gladiator) heels in love with bohemian style. Find inspiration in these boho-meets-street-style looks and add your own personal touches to make them reflect your inner flower child. I suggest a half-up boho bun hairstyle or go all out and make your own flower crown.
