Hats Off to Summer with Dad Hats

Say goodbye to bad hair days. It’s officially hat season, dad hat season that is!

Olive Dad Hat

Don’t let the hot summer heat stop you. Beat the heat with a dad hat. Top off any outfit with a solid baseball cap. Weather it’s a solid basic tee, a graphic tee or a fun print, a solid colored dad hat will do the trick!

Pineapple Dad Hat

The obsession with pineapples continues. This pineapple dad hat is perfect for summer and has me day dreaming of the beach. I paired this dad hat with one of my favorite basics, a Piko top. Don’t let a bad hair day ruin your plans this summer.

Permanent Vacation Dad Hat

I wouldn’t be mad if we went to the beach and you left me there all summer long! This permanent vacation dad hat gives me all the good vibes. With that being said, peace out cold weather, you can find me somewhere warm and sunny!

Dad hats aren’t just for ladies. Shop hats for men!

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

Stay tuned to see more styles from our sales associate within the next few months! If you would like to be featured on our Instagram, tag us, @gliks_official, in your Instagram photos and use #gliksstyle.

 Transitioning Your Bralette for Fall

Burgundy Piko with braletteLook by M Cardigan with braletteRaise your hand if you’re obsessed with bralettes! I know I am! I own them in about 5 different colors and layer them under all my basic tops. I’m a bralette junkie!

The trend started with the original basic racerback and now, they are expanding with multiple necklines and back details. We layered them under tank tops and our favorite Piko tops over the summer to show off the lace and criss cross cage detailing. As a huge supporter of this trend, we want to see it continue into fall. Check out the different ways we have layered our favorite styles for fall.

The Halter Bralette

We have styled our Wishlist lace bralette in a beautiful blush color under a burgundy V-neck Piko sweater. The lace on this halter peeks out just around the neckline of this sweater, giving it an elegant look that everyone will love.  This is the perfect look for those cozy Sundays when you want to look cute, but don’t feel like getting out of bed!

The Racerback Bralette

We took our olive racerback bralette and layered it under a black Z Supply tee. This is a trend we saw a lot over the summer. To transition this look for fall, we layered it with a chunky cardigan from Look by M. Again, an effortless look that is perfect for those lazy days when you just want to stay warm and be cozy.

How to Style Your Piko Dresses for Fall

As the weather changes so will your wardrobe. It’s time to pack up the tank tops and shorts, and pull out the sweaters and boots. One thing I don’t want to pack up though are my dresses! I love dresses and I am always trying to find ways to style them for the fall. I’ve taken our favorite Piko Swing Dress and styled it three different ways for fall.

Layer it with a blanket scarf

If you don’t have a Piko dress in your closet, I recommend changing that immediately. Piko dresses are so simple and go perfectly with just about anything. When it comes to layering, Piko dresses will be your go to item. Throw a jacket or vest over your dress for a comfortable but yet flattering look. I’ve layered my striped Piko dress with a plaid blanket scarf. Don’t be afraid to mix your prints!

Tie it together with a plaid shirt

Plaid is the must have staple piece for fall. You can never have too many plaid button down shirts!  There are many different ways to wear a plaid shirt, you can layer it under a vest, wear it open with a V-neck tee or tie it around your waist with a dress. I took a solid color Piko Dress and tied a plaid shirt around my waist to add a pop of color to my outfit. Some would call this outfit the tomboy look, but I’ve paired it with peep toed booties for a sassier look. Trade out those booties for a pair of Converse to rock the Tomboy look!

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.

Glik’s Five Fall Favorites

Five Fall FavoritesHello Autumn! The best season of the year is upon us and I couldn’t be more stoked to bust out my fall wardrobe. Here are my five fall favorites!

Wine Piko Top

Wine is my favorite color this fall and Piko tops are a must have staple piece. Add this color and this top together and you have the perfect fall basic. Dress this fall comfy bamboo top up with a long necklace and as the temperatures drop add a vest to this Piko top.

Long Necklaces

Long necklaces make for great accessory pieces. This neck candy looks great with a scoop neckline and can be adjusted to fit a length that works best for you. Pair a long necklace with a basic top for a classy and simple look.

Tall Riding Boots

Tall riding boots are a must have for fall. They look great with just about anything. Wear them with your skinny jeans and your favorite tops or sweaters for an effortless look.

Distressed Denim

Everyone always makes fun of distressed denim, saying “You paid money for your jeans to look like that?” Well of course we did, because distressed denim is trendy, and we girls love it. And let’s be honest, who wants to sit there and try to cut up their jeans to get the perfect distressed look? Distress denim is perfect for those warm fall days and look great with about any top!

Look by M Shawl Vest

Fall weather can be fickle here in the Midwest, one day it can be 80 degrees and the next day it can be 50 degrees, which makes layering great. One of my favorites this fall is the Look by M Shawl Vest, it is versatile and can be worn as a vest or a scarf.

                           Riding Boots  Long Necklace

Wine Piko tops, long necklaces, tall riding boots, distressed denim, and the Look by M shawl vest are my five fall favorites this year and I hope that you love them just as much as I do!

White Jeans: How to Transition into Fall

White Jeans after Labor Day

Everyone says you can’t wear white after Labor Day… but let’s be honest; the fashion police aren’t going to come after you if you do. So don’t be afraid to wear white jeans after Labor Day. Here are a few ways we like to style our white jeans for fall.

Shoes at Glik's

What shoes should I wear with white jeans this fall?

It’s that time of the year again, time to pack up the flip flops and sandals and pull out the boots! If you think it’s too early for boots, you can always wear your Sperry Top-Siders, TOMS or Converse until it is officially boot season!

Booties are always a must have for this transition from summer to fall. Wear black or brown booties with your white jeans to give it a fall look. You won’t regret adding a pair of booties to your boot collection this fall.

Accessories at Glik's

What kind of accessories should I wear with my white jeans this fall?

Scarves are a great piece to add to your outfit! Pair them with a basic and your jeans for a simple but cute look. And you can never go wrong with a statement necklace! Wear a statement necklace with autumn colored Piko tops and jeans for another simple look.
Glik's Outfit

What kind of tops should I wear with my white jeans this fall?

Chambray, Brown, Black, Beige, Olive, and Marsala are all great autumn colors. Piko tops are a must have basic for this fall and will look great. Denim or chambray tops paired with a cardigan or a jacket will make your jeans pop this fall.

Jackets at Glik's

You can never go wrong adding plaid to your white jeans outfit. We are loving the plaid hood and elbow patches on this utility jacket! Get yours today before they sell out, again!

Do You Piko? Guest Blog by Angela Bruening

We’ve got a special treat for you all! Glik’s Visual Merchandiser and fashionista extraordinaire, Angela, is allowing us to share the scoop on Piko tops from her own blog. After you’re done reading about your future favorite shirts here, check out Ang’s blog for some more sage fashion and beauty advice.

Do You Piko?

piko tops are one of the most amazing pieces of clothing ever invented.  in my opinion, of course.  i could seriously wear one every single day.  if you don’t know what a piko is, here’s the skinny:  they are oversized shirts made of bamboo and spandex.  they come in a ton of different colors and styles.  there’s even a piko sweater!  what!?!  since they are oversized, you might want to size down in them.  I normally wear large or x-large tops, but buy mediums in piko tops.

ang looking down

I probably  own at least 10 of these.  they are great to throw on with a pair of jeans or leggings.  they are very versatile; they can be dressed up or dressed down.  and the best part, you ask?  they can be bought here for a great price! only $20 for a piko top and $22 for a piko sweater.  this is a bargain if i do say so myself 🙂

Piko

did I mention , piko’s and bralette’s make a great combination?

do you own any piko tops?  I would love to know how you style them!

5 Key Pieces to Transition Your Wardrobe from Summer to Fall

Hello AutumnThe transition from summer to fall apparel here at Glik’s is in full swing. The clothes I’ve seen cross my desk are so cute and I can barely contain my excitement! I just want to buy all over it!

And a number of pieces stood out as an absolutely key item that will not only be great this fall season, but will also help you transition your wardrobe from summer to fall. Don’t miss these 5 must-have items:

Fringe Sweaters

This Billabong sweater is going to be everyone’s favorite this fall. A lot of girls are already so excited to wear it that they are pairing it with their denim shorts. Fringe was hot this summer and is going to continue to be hot this fall.

Fringe Cardigan

Plaid Shirts

Plaid shirts are always a must-have! They make a simple outfit so much fun. There are three different ways I’ve seen the plaid worn. Buttoned up, kept open or tied around the waist. Tying your plaid around your waist adds character to your outfit. I’ve seen it tied around the waist with a dress, denim shorts or capris. No matter how you wear it, you will always look cute in plaid.

Plaid is rad

Scarves

Scarves are simple but cute when transitioning from summer to fall. The blanket scarf pairs nicely with our Piko tops. These blanket scarves come in a variety of colors making it easy to coordinate with your outfit. Grab your blanket scarf today before they are gone!

Plaid Blanket Scarf

Fedoras and Wide Brim Hats

Hats are great for transitioning from summer to fall. Make a statement by adding a wide brim hat to your outfit. The chain detailing on this hat is the perfect finishing touch you need to complete your festive outfit.

Wide Brim Hats

Booties

Every girl needs a pair of booties! Booties look great with bare legs making them perfect for this time of the year. Pair these booties with your favorite dress and a cardigan to enhance your summer-to-fall outfit. If dresses aren’t your style then try wearing your booties with cuffed skinny jeans. You won’t go wrong adding these booties to your boot collection!

Booties

Any (or all) of these essential wardrobe pieces will make the transition from summer to fall that much smoother. And as a bonus, these items can be worn both now (of course!) and later (as warm fall layers!)
