Gift Ideas for Last Minute Shoppers

Can you believe there are only a few shopping days left until Christmas?  Me either!  I hate to say it, but I still have a few people to buy for. Nothing like waiting till the last minute I guess. Here are a few last minute gift ideas, for guys and gals, if you procrastinated like I did 🙂

1.  Stance Socks. You may not have liked getting socks for Christmas when you were a kid, but having fun and colorful socks is a must have accessory this holiday season! Stance socks come in a ton of colors and patterns. They have a seamless toe and deep pockets for your heels.  They are the perfect gift for that guy or gal on your list!

2.  Scarves.  Who doesn’t love a cozy scarf when it’s chilly outside?  Scarves are great gift ideas for any guy or girl on your list.  Scarves are one size fits all that can be worn with or without their coat.

3.  Beanies.  Beanies can be worn as a trendy accessory or to keep warm when the temperature drops.  Guys and girls alike will love receiving these as gifts.  They come in a variety of brands, colors and patterns. CC beanies are my favorite!

4.  North Face Apex Etip Gloves:  Not only will these gloves keep their hands warm, they won’t have to take them off to use their phone or other electronics with a touch screen.  They also offer wind protection and have a water resistant finish.  I have given these as gifts before and they were a big hit!

5.  Gifts-in-a-jar.  If you are wanting to take the DIY route, gifts-in-a-jar are perfect.  They are simple, inexpensive and fun!  For the gal on your list, you can make a Comfy Cozy gift jar.  Add hot cocoa mix, marshmallows, candy canes and a couple of mugs and you are all set.  You could even add a scarf and gloves to make it even cozier :). For the guy on your list:  a way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.  Fill a jar full of all his favorite snack foods:  chips, dip, candy, trail mix and maybe even a few bottles of soda.  I can guarantee any guy would love to receive this gift idea!

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!

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!

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!)

It’s Back | The Essential Plaid Scarf

The Blanket Scarf

For the past few seasons, the plaid blanket scarf has been the must-have accessory for fashion lovers everywhere. Not only does it serve a functional purpose and keep you warm on those chilly fall days, but it also offers endless styling opportunities making it a versatile piece well worth the investment.

Plaid Blanket Scarf

 

You already learned how to wear the blanket scarf here, but in order to keep this trendy piece relevant in your wardrobe; you also need to know what to wear your plaid scarf with.

Outfit Inspiration

This outfit should be a staple in your fall wardrobe rotation for so many reasons. Not only is it practical for every day wear, but it is also requires minimal effort. Each piece offers versatility, so you won’t be limited in your styling options. I’ve chosen a pair of Flying Monkey jeans, a basic long sleeve thermal from Able, a killer navy blue Fate vest, and our plaid blanket scarf (of course). This outfit works because it is understated and will leave you looking put together. Also, the navy blue vest has a mixed texture that contrasts nicely against the colors in the plaid scarf.

Plaid Blanket Scarf and Vest

The Infinity Scarf

Equally as wonderful as the blanket scarf is the infinity plaid scarf. Let’s be honest, most of us spend an overabundance of time trying to turn our blanket scarves into infinity scarves anyway, so this new style is a Godsend.

Plaid Infinity Scarf

Outfit Inspiration

To style this plaid scarf, I’ve selected a military inspired jacket from Amuse Society, a neutral colored striped shirt from Ginger G, and the same pair of Flying Monkeys from the first photo (see, they are a versatile pant!). Mixing patterns like the stripes in this shirt and the plaid scarf is a huge trend right now. Don’t be afraid to take a risk and be a little more fashion forward when styling your plaid scarf.

Plaid Infinity Scarf Gotta have it? Both of these must-have scarves will be available (at a special price, yay!) on gliks.com starting Monday, July 13th.

Warm Ways to Wear a Scarf This Winter

Layering is the key to staying warm this winter. Scarves are perfect for layering because they are warm and ever-so-stylish.

For inspiration, we referred to the book, “50 Ways to Wear a Scarf”, by Lauren Friedman. It is truly a must-have for scarf-wearers. Here are some of our favorite warm ways to wear scarves this winter…

The Flyaway Vest

A scarf doesn’t always have to go around your neck. Get more use out of your favorite scarf by creating a flyaway vest! This look can be created with an oblong scarf. We used our Looks Collections Plaid Blanket Scarf that is available in multiple colors.

Flyaway Vest

  • Step 1: Fold your scarf in half widthwise.
  • Step2: Tie the two sides of the top corner together.
  • Step 3: Take the folded side that is in your other hand and bring it together with the tied side.
  • Step 4: Tie the folded side and the tied side together to make one large knot.
  • Step 5: Make sure the knot is secure.
  • Step 6: Position the scarf so you can place your arms through the holes.

*A similar style, “The Kimono,” can be seen on pages 61-62 in the “50 Ways to Wear a Scarf” book.

The Hourglass

This look is super-fast, super-easy and a great way to accentuate your figure! To create this look, we used the Reversible Nordic Print Wool Scarf.

The Reversible Nordic Print Wool Scarf

  • Step 1: Obtain a long rectangular scarf and a belt of your choice.
  • Step 2: Drape the scarf around your neck and adjust it to your liking.
  • Step 3: Make sure the ends of the scarf are even.
  • Step 4: Secure the belt around the scarf and your waist.

*“The Hourglass” can be seen on pages 68-69 in the “50 Ways to Wear a Scarf” book.

The Lazy Girl

The Lazy Girl style is perfect for a day when you are short on time but still want to pull off a stylish look. We used Two-Toned Check Oblong Scarf that is available in a variety of colors.

Two-Tone Check Oblong Scarf

  • Step 1: Obtain a long rectangular scarf.
  • Step 2: Drape the scarf around your neck so that one side hangs lower than the other.
  • Step 3: Take the longer side of the scarf and start wrapping it around your neck.
  • Step 4: Bring the longer side all the way around your neck so it lays parallel to the short side.

*“The Lazy Girl” can be seen on pages 71-72 in the “50 Ways to Wear a Scarf” book.

The Knot

This style puts a creative twist on a traditional way to wear a scarf. It is a great way to add some style to a simple outfit. Here we used the Two-Toned Check Oblong Scarf that is available in a variety of colors.

Two-Tone Check Oblong Scarf

  • Step 1:  Fold your long scarf in half and make a loop with the folded end.
  • Step 2: Through the loop, grab one end of the scarf and pull it through.
  • Step 3: Open the loop again.
  • Step 4: Bring the remaining loose end over the top of the folded side and then pull through the loop. This will create the “knot” effect.

*“The Knot” can be seen on pages 76-77 in the “50 Ways to Wear a Scarf” book.

 

Warm Ways to Wear a Scarf This Winter

Men’s Sweaters at Glik’s

Just because the temperature outside is about to reach a low point doesn’t mean that your style has to also. The solution to your winter wardrobe blues is the essential men’s sweater. If you are new rocking the men’s sweater, there is no need to stress. Glik’s offers a lot of handsome and attractive men’s sweaters for men that will liven up your wardrobe during the fall and winter seasons.

1897 Sweater for MenNot only do these sweaters make for attractive attire but they are also functional, stylish, and a great way to stay warm! Sweaters can be worn on a dinner date, to a holiday party, or to work on casual Fridays. Even when wearing casual sweaters, you can look sharp and stylish.

Men's Sweaters

Men's Quarter-Zip Sweater

The secret to adding sweaters to your wardrobe is variation. At Glik’s you can choose between quarter-zip, shawl collar, full-zip, and hooded sweaters. It is important to make sure the style is appropriate for the occasion. For instance, the sweaters with the shawl necklines look a tad bit dressier than the hooded sweaters and would be appropriate to wear to a holiday party or even to work. And depending on how you layer them, these men’s sweaters can be worn in the fall, winter, and possibly even into the spring.

Retro-fit Men's Sweaters

Men's Sweaters

If you are looking for a way to get more bang for your buck, try a sweater in a neutral color. Neutral colors like black, brown, gray, or tan are usually more practical because they can be worn more often and with different wardrobe combinations. And you can always add color to your outfit by layering a neutral sweater over a colorful shirt or by adding colorful accessories like a watch or a scarf.

Men’s Sweaters at Glik’s

Fringe + Bell Sleeves= Fall Boho

The fall Boho style can be created simply by combining the fall trends of fringe and bell sleeves. These trends are a must if you want to unleash your inner Boho babe.

Fringe

Finding fringe this fall won’t be difficult, but you don’t have to be decked out in fringe from head to toe to create a Bohemian look. Subtle doses of fringe will do the trick. Sweaters and cardigans with fringe have become popular and are a great addition to your fall wardrobe. Afraid to fully commit to the fringe trend? You can start with accessories or shoes. Glik’s has awesome fringe boots that will really add Boho to your style. You can also add a fringe scarf or fringe jewelry to your outfit to embrace the fringe craze.
