HOT TO WEAR: Jacquard Leggings, Lace Shorts Edition, Crop Tops, and Sequin Leggings!

A few hot items that we just got in from LA are fabulous… but are a little difficult to style. Don’t worry! In this How to Wear I will explain a few cute ways to rock these LA styles.

First up! The Jacquard legging, also known as the Navajo legging. These pants are not only warm, but also quite a statement! They are not to be confused with house pants or PJ’s; these are a fabulous substitute for your boring black leggings. However, they are a little more complicated to wear then plain leggings. They definitely have to be worn with a solid color, and I think a loose top looks best. These are perfect to tuck into combat boots, Ugg boots, and over the knee boots. If you have the courage they would look awesome with heels and a big loose top for a night out. I wore them with a black tank, loose grey dolman ‘Shark bite’ TOP, and combat boots.

Next are the lace shorts that were spotted on the legs of style icon Blake Lively and E News host, Giulana Rancic. Theirs were both Marchesa, with a price tag of over $1,000! But as always, at Glik’s we have the look for less. These black lace shorts look perfect with a white button down, black blazer, tights, and pumps. For a tougher, less professional look you could pair these with a band tee, leather jacket and combat boots. These shorts are totally fabulous no matter how you wear them.

Crop tops are tricky little guys. Unless you are doing an 80’s work out routine, you MUST wear a tank top under them. Shown here we paired our crop top with a black tank top and jeans. You could also wear it over a tight black mini dress for some layering, or a black high waisted skirt. Crop tops are a great thing to throw on to add a little sass to a plain outfit.

As I have said a million times before but SEQUINS ARE HOT! Another way to wear sequins (we’ve had tops and dresses already) is on leggings! These black sequin leggings are totally sparkly and fabulous… Lady Gaga style! For a casual look, wear with an oversized tee and combat boots. For a nighttime one, a loose t-shirt, blazer and pumps would be totally chic.

Well that’s everything! I hope that these suggestions help you figure out how to wear these fabulous items. You can find them online www.gliks.com or in select Glik’s stores.

L.A. FAST FASHION: JUST IN TIME FOR THE HOLIDAYS!

THIS IS OUR LAST HOLIDAY INJECTION BEFORE 2011!

The Glik’s buying team just left the streets of downtown L.A. for the Midwest with orders of HOT HOT HOT holiday key trends for the remainder of 2010 and going into the new year of 2011. From Lace Shorts to Jacquard Leggings, Glik’s has it covered!!!!

First up are the party dresses. Everyone needs a huge selection of cocktail dresses this time of year, with all the holiday parties and dinners. One of the hottest trends that has been all over, is the one shoulder dress. Worn by celebrities like Kim and Kourtney Kardashian. Just like the girls we have a black and red one-shoulder dress, two colors that are huge during this time of year.

Our black one-shoulder dress has stud detailing around the waist. This rock-and-roll chic look will look fabulous worn with sheer black tights and pumps. Add a splash of color with a bright clutch or earrings.

Our red one shoulder dress has ruffles running down the side. For more of a feminine look, opt for this dress instead. Wear it like Kim does, with all black tights, heels and clutch. All that black will make the color pop! Whether it’s for a party, dinner, or a club this dress is a fabulous way to spice up your wardrobe.

What says fashion forward more than sequins or black sheer mesh? Both! This Sequin tunic has a racerback made of sheer black mesh and body of silver and black sequins. Both sequins and mesh are on every runway; get the designer look for less! Wear this out with jeans or leggings and a simple black blazer. For a trendy mature look for the season, pair the look with some peep-toe platforms and a statement watch.

Similar to the tunic, Glik’s also has a red and black sequin dress also with the mesh back. All you need to complete the look are black tights, a blazer and pumps!

As I have written about before, lace couldn’t be more on trend this season. It’s everywhere! Blake Lively was spotted wearing chic lace shorts. Her shorts were  made by the famous designer brand, Marchesa. The shorts retail for over $1,000! Luckily at Glik’s you can get this fabulous short with a reasonable price tag. Wear it like Blake with a low-cut black sweater, or even a white button down for a classier look.

Another trend that’s been in the works for a while is the crop-top. That’s right ladies and gents, the 80’s look is back and stronger than ever. We have a cropped hooded knit sweater that’s black and gray stripes. Another cropped sweater that we have is purple and black rugby stripes. Worn with a solid color tank top and jeans, this is a great look to rock for a more casual look. Crop-tops also look fabulous with a high-waisted skirt.

Another sweater Glik’s bought in L.A. is called the shark-bite sweater. Its called this because at the bottom of the sweater there is a chunk missing, with the two sides of the top hanging down. This is a great layering piece for winter. You can wear this sweater over dresses, high-waisted skirts, or a jeans/tank top combo.

Leggings are the perfect way to stay warm and fabulous during this upcoming winter. However, the simple black ones can get a little boring after a while. So… look no further! These Jacquard Sweater leggings are basically sweaters for your legs! They will look adorable tucked into UGGS and combat boots. Wear these leggings with a simple color on top. I think army green (break out that parka again!) and black would look best. These will make you stand out among the crowd of jeans and plain black leggings!

Last but not least, what better way to ring in the New Year than with a 2011 tee? This red slub (remember those from the last post??) reads 2011 across it in shiny black sequins. Wear it for New Years Eve or Day! For the Eve look, pair with shiny black leggings and pumps. For the Day wear the slub with black or dark wash denim and some warm boots. Also, if you’re graduating this year (like I am!) you can wear this tee forever. So much more fabulous then a simple class of ’11 tshirt!

Well that’s all! I know it’s a lot of fabulous clothing to take in, but it’s the Holidays! Its time to get dressed up and stay on trend. So whatever style you have, or whatever occasion you’re shopping for, Glik’s has something fresh from L.A. for you. Look online and in stores for these items.
