It’s already that time of the year again… THANKSGIVING! Can you believe!? With family traditions, shopping, great food, and holiday cheer, Thanksgiving is the kick off for the holiday season. With all of the busyness and chaos that revolves around Thanksgiving week, we wanted to put together a few outfit ideas for you! Keep reading to see four head-to-toe looks that will leave you cozy, stylish, and wanting each item for your wardrobe.

1. Shredded Sweaters

main-strip-outfitSweater weather is definitely here, so obviously this is a go-to look for the holidays. Statement sweaters are the perfect item to incorporate into your wardrobe.  We went with this shredded v-neck sweater from Main Strip. We ADORE this sweater so much, that we carry it in FOURTEEN (14!) colorways for you to choose from! We paired the sweater with an ultra-stretchy and soft pair of flared jeans.  These flare jeans from Cello Jeans are so great for the holidays because they have a pull on construction (fashionable look with a legging feel) so eat all of the turkey and stuffing you want! Complete the look with a lace bralette and a pair of neutral heeled booties, like these from Qupid Shoes!

2. Dainty Dresses

everly-outfitThis next look goes out to all you trendy girls out there. This corduroy dress from Everly Clothing is a timeless piece that features a delicate button front detail. (SWOON) This dress can easily be styled to suit your unique looks, but we decided to pair it with a trendy pair of leopard booties! We love how the animal print dresses the look down a bit, but if you wanted to dress it up, throw on a pair of sheer tights and heeled ankle booties or a pair of over the knee boots. Since the temperatures are dropping at this time of the year, you’ll need a dependable, yet fashionable, jacket! Snag this fur lined corduroy jacket from Thread & Supply and you’ll never want to take it off.

3. Sleepy Sherpas

threadsupply-outfitLet’s face it, this is what the majority of us will wear (or dream of wearing) on any holiday! (Let alone any day of the year, but that’s a battle for another blog post. 😉 ) This outfit will let you stuff your face with as much food as your heart desires, followed by a nap wherever you land, and then you will 100% wear the look on repeat weekly.  Our Thread & Supply Lazy Sunday sherpa pullover is the hottest item, so you’ll FOR SURE want one in each color. Sherpa pullovers are what dreams are made of; they’re like a soft blanket you can wear in public without being judged. We paired it with one of our many graphic tees from Charlie Southern that we are quite literally obsessed with and a pair of black fleece lined leggings. Finish this snuggly look with a high-quality pair of Sperry Duck Boots!

4. Charming Cardigans

lovestitch-outfitThis final look is definitely for when you want to look like you made an effort in how you look for the holidays, without sacrificing any comfort. This Love Stitch Clothing popcorn cardigan is sooo buttery soft and comes in multiple colors. It is extremely warm and such a great investment since you can wear it as a fashion piece and as outerwear! We layered it over one of our Wishlist Clothing bodysuits, which needs to become a staple in your year-round wardrobe if it isn’t already. Complete the look with a pair of versatile denim jeans, like these from Nature Jeans, and a pair of tall boots, like these from MIA Shoes.

What to Wear On Thanksgiving 2018

BRAND SPOTLIGHT: THREAD & SUPPLY

Thread & Supply Outerwear

We are absolutely in love with this brand, and we wanted to share some of our favorite styles with you! This way you’ll be fully prepared for creating your Christmas wish list without forgetting about the most stylish styles of sherpa and other fabulous outerwear.  With so many new styles… how do you choose? Well, check out this easy break down of styles and why we love them all. We’re sure you’ll fall in love with one (or three) of these pieces from Thread & Supply after reading through today’s blog!

 

Lazy Sunday SherpaAll we want to do is cuddle up in this Lazy Sunday pullover and watch our favorite TV shows on repeat! The jersey-knit inner lining sets a precedent for the rest of the Thread & Supply Sherpa styles, creating a statement piece that finally cares about the comfort on the inside too. So cozy to wear alone or over your favorite tees for the ultimate, comfy and cozy look!

 

Stowe Hoody SherpaHOW DID IT GET EVEN BETTER?? We thought that we would only love the Lazy Sunday for forever, but now we are loving this zip-up sherpa hoody to no end! The Stowe Hoody from Thread and Supply will satisfy your need for an on-the-go sherpa that you can throw on over any outfit.

 

The Madison PulloverNeed a slimmer look?… Well look no further! We have found our new favorite, sweater style in The Madison Pullover. There is a super soft inner fleece lining that helps you to stay completely cozy all day long. So you can wear this alone, or as a building layer for your fall and winter wardrobe!

 

Marina Denim JacketThread & Supply isn’t all just about sherpa! They have us covered in denim outerwear too, and the Marina Jacket is a style that you will see in many of our social media posts because it’s just so dang versatile! We have loved the distressed details on this jacket, and we can’t wait for you to throw it on over your spring and summer dresses so you can transition them into the season with style.

 

Soho Sherpa JacketFluffy on the outside, wind-breaker on the inside! This Soho Sherpa Jacket is every kind of cozy. Not only are the two hand pockets cozy and cute, but the two chest pockets are functional if you remove the little bit of protective stitching. Whenever pockets are sewn shut, it’s so people trying on the garment don’t shove their hands into them. Pockets are for owners only, so cut the threads very carefully and you’re set with a your new favorite, four-pocket jacket!

 

Park City Reversible VestWe came, we saw, and we LAYERED. The Thread & Supply Park City Vest is one of our favorite layering pieces because it is the perfect finishing touch to any outfit. You can either wear the solid color out for all to see, or flip the vest inside out and rock the sherpa on the outside for a totally new look!

 

Mack Camo Jacket

If you’re looking for an over-sized jacket in order to complete your outerwear collection, please take this Camouflage Mack Jacket into consideration! The fabric is so comfortable, and the roomy construction helps it all come together to create a must-have jacket for fall.

 

Dillon Hooded PulloverWe have another athletic style to share with you! The Dillon Hooded Pullover is full of features to love, and we can’t help but lounge around in this perfectly cozy piece. Whether you’re running to class, to the coffee shop, throw on some sneakers, some cozy leggings, and this athleisure hoody and you will be set for the day!

 

Gilman Pullover Talk about a statement-maker! With how light and comfortable this pullover is in person, we just can’t get over the cozy. You’ll look fashion-forward all winter long in the Gilman Pullover thanks to the soft, quilted, ivory fleece and stylish navy accents.

 

Garvey Plaid VestAlthough the Garvey Vest isn’t reversible like the Park City Vest, the plaid outer layer that is super soft-to-the-touch makes up for the loss in versatility. Also, the beautiful fall colors that are present in this Thread & Supply vest are easy to coordinate with all of your seasonal staples, so this vest is still a big winner in our book.

 

New Thread and Supply Styles

We’ve introduced you to everything that we currently have for sale, but we just couldn’t wait to share what’s coming next with this amazing brand! We are so excited to share two gorgeous colors in the Drayton Pullover and the Paddington Jacket, as well as a must-have, buffalo plaid Miles Hooded Cardigan.

Back to School Styles: Fall Preview 2018

It’s almost August, which means it’s time to start thinking about back to school shopping! I know some of you may be thinking, “UGH, do we have to?!” But, back to school shopping can be super fun since it’s the time when you get to start picking out your new fall wardrobe and be oh-so stylish walking down the halls. Keep reading to check out our top picks for Fall 2018!

cardigan

The most staple of all fall outfits is this look. It is great for almost any occasion, and can be SO versatile since there are SO MANY ways to achieve this look! If it were up to us (and this heat wave would go away) we would be wearing a cozy cardigan every single day. Finding a cardigan, or sweater, that is made with a textured knit fabric is the way to go! It gives your look a pattern, while still wearing neutrals.

Denim is also a staple piece to stock up on for fall. As the temps start to drop, you will need a few core styles of denim jeans to rotate through the year! Kancan Jeans and Flying Monkey Jeans are two of our favorite brands that we swear by.  They offer different styles and fits, while all being so comfortable and sculpt to your every move. One of our go-to looks is denim on denim.  This put together look can be achieved by wearing your favorite denim jeans (or jean skirt) and pairing it with a jean jacket or button up chambray top.  To let your personality shine, wear a graphic tshirt underneath or add your unique accessories to add a pop of color.

Shoes

Now, you can’t talk back to school shopping without mentioning the best part: NEW SHOES! Finding neutral booties is a great investment in your fall wardrobe.  They are so great since you can easily dress them up and down, while still remaining comfortable throughout your day.  A few of our favorites are from Qupid Shoes, Soda Shoes, and City Classified Shoes! Also, you can’t forget about your new cool sneakers to complete your athleisure looks for days when you really don’t have the time or energy to be completely glam. 🙂

cc and sherpa

If you haven’t hopped aboard the sherpa train, or if you’ve been living under a rock and have no idea what a sherpa pullover is, now is DEFINITELY the time.  Sherpa is huuuuuge for fall, and now is the best time to stock up on your favorite styles! (PS. These are amazing Christmas gifts.) You never have to worry about being freezing while sitting in class, or putting on a bulky winter coat again.  They are literally so warm and cozy, you’ll never want to take it off! A great pair to sherpa are beanies! CC Beanies are our favorite beanies to wear when it gets cold.  They offer a variety of colors and styles, that you’ll be sure to find one that suits your needs.

Let’s Talk About February 14th Fashion…

happy vday

Okay… whether you love or hate celebrating Valentine’s Day, why not have an excuse to purchase a new outfit?!  From dresses and rompers to cozy and casual outfits, we have been receiving a lot of new Spring product at Gliks and we cannot wait to share it all with you!

Ladies, for those of you who are scrambling around trying to decide what to wear to impress your man (or your Galentines), we’ve picked out a few outfits for you!

Dressy & Flirty

everly romper

How darling is this Everly Clothing Plaid Romper?! This just screams class and makes us wish we had every item of clothing in Cher Horowitz’s (cue Clueless reference) closet! This romper has a self-tie design on the front with an encased elastic waistband to define your shape.  The flowy fit and neutral coloring of this outfit makes it super easy to dress up or down! To dress it up for Valentine’s Day, pair this romper with the Qupid Shoes Chamber Woven Peep Toe Heels in Black.

everly purple

Also from Everly, this simple shift dress with bell sleeves makes our hearts happy! The purple pastel color gives your wardrobe that pop of Spring and puts a little pep in your step.  If you’re heading to a fancy dinner or romantic getaway, this dress is for you! Since the design is so simple, it gives you room to put your own twist on how you decide to accessorize! We went ahead and paired the dress with this oh-so-versatile pair of Qupid Shoes Chamber Distressed Strappy Heels in Taupe!

CUTE & Cozy

salmon twist back

This is a completely biased opinion, but we believe EVERY WOMAN needs a twist back sweater in her wardrobe, like this one from Miracle Clothing! It is so elegant and cozy all in one.  The twist back detail takes this chunky knit sweater to the next level.  It is perfect for casual cute evenings with your man, or out to dinner and drinks with your girlfriends! If pink isn’t your color, don’t worry! This sweater comes in multiple colors 🙂  Pair this sweater with a pair of peep toe booties, like these from Qupid Shoes, and your favorite accessories and you’ll be good to go!

pearl cardigan

If you want to kick things up a notch, add some delicate detailed pearls to your outfit!  The long line silhouette, bubble sleeves, and pearl details bring a feminine touch to your overall facade.  Pairing this cardigan with some blown out denim, like these KanCan Jeans, will dress your look down a bit.  The best thing about cozy cardigans is being able to dress them up or down! Depending on the look you are trying to achieve, finish this outfit with a pair of ankle booties or a pair of Converse sneakers!

Laid Back & Casual

vanilla bay

Now, if your plan for Valentine’s Day revolves around watching your favorite RomComs (Love Actually and The Proposal, we’re talking to you) and indulging in chocolate covered strawberries with your besties (or if you and your man boycott V-Day) this outfit is for you! This simple color block tee from Vanilla Bay, distressed denim, and Converse is a look that you will wear on repeat each season.  Laid back styles that are also cute and fashionable are what we LIVE for!

sherpa

Does your date night involve the outdoors? Don’t stress over what to wear! Throw on a sherpa pullover and CC Beanie and the rest will follow suit.  This outfit is also a great investment for your cold weather wardrobe! It has all the necessities that you can wear from daytime shopping and lunch to night walks around the park and on the town.  Slip on your favorite pair of over the knee boots or ankle booties and you’ve got your outfit in the bag!

If you still aren’t convinced you need to buy a new outfit after reading this post, we think you should reconsider! These outfit options are perfect for whatever occasion you have in mind and they will help take your wardrobe to the next level. Shop the latest arrivals in women’s fashion at gliks.com!

How to Wash a True Grit Pullover

How to Wash a True Grit Pullover

An investment like this requires some extra TLC to keep it looking and feeling as soft and beautiful as possible.

How to Wash Your True Grit/Dylan Sherpa:

  1. Wash separately in cold water with regular detergent (no fabric softener, no bleach.)
  2. Line dry (do not heat dry.)
  3. Fluff with your fingers when dry.

You may see that your True Grit Sherpa Pullover is becoming matted in some areas where a seat belt has been worn or where backpack straps may lay. To help keep these areas fluffy and soft, we recommend using a boar bristle brush and gently brush the Sherpa on your pullover to make it not matted. Here are 5 easy steps to help bring your Sherpa pullover back to life!

How to Make Your True Grit/Dylan Sherpa Not Matted:

Step 1: Get a boar bristle brush. We went to our local drug store and found a boar bristle brush for $3.

Step 2: Lay your Sherpa pullover down on a flat surface.

Step 3: Use the boar bristle brush to gently brush the matted areas. We found brushing in multiple directions helped the matted areas most.

Step 4: After brushing the Sherpa, we used the back of the boar bristle brush and patted the Sherpa back into place.

College Outfit Essentials

Let me guess, it’s the week or two before school starts, you have all your school supplies and dorm room accessories ready to go but you haven’t even started packing your clothes yet. Because, let’s be honest, who wants to make that decision on what items to bring and what items you have to leave behind.  Well, I am here to make your packing experience a little easier, I have put together a top 10 closest essentials list that I know I wouldn’t be able to live without!

Top 10 Closet Essentials for College

  1. Sweaters
  2. Sweatshirts and pullovers
  3. Your favorite blue jeans
  4. Leggings
  5. A couple of dresses – A sassy, flirty dress and a casual t-shirt dress
  6. At least 5 pairs of shoes – tennis shoes, heels, booties, flats, slides/sandals and rain/winter boots
  7. Hats and Scarves – baseball caps, beanies and blanket scarves.
  8. Bralettes – 1 White, 1 Black and 1 of your favorite color
  9. At Least 7 nice shirts/blouses
  10. A few t-shirts

Dressing for fall is my favorite time of the year! I just love the sweaters and cozy scarves that come along with the colder temperatures. Unfortunately, for packing this makes it harder because usually fall clothing is bulkier and takes up more space. But don’t let that intimidate you, that means you just have to pick out your favorite pieces to take with you.

Piko Sweater Top

I started my list with sweaters, because I love a nice cozy sweater! I would say to pack at least 3 or 4 sweaters, two casual sweaters that matches everything and two statement sweater for going out in. My favorite statement sweater is a lace up sweater.

Sherpa Pullover

My next go item is a sweatshirt. On my lazy days, I just grab my sweatshirt and pair it with my leggings and just bum around campus. You can dress up your sweatshirt and pullover collection by adding a Sherpa pullover, these pullovers will be sure to keep you warm during that nice little walk from your dorm to class.

College Essentials

I know you have to have at least one pair of jeans that you just cannot live without. I know I have at least two. I would pack your favorite jeans and some leggings. You will be living in leggings during class and hanging out in the dorm! They are a must have!

Booties

Don’t forget about your best companions, your shoes. You’ll need at least one pair of tennis shoes and maybe a pair of nude heels that will match everything. Be sure to grab your favorite booties, and some slides or sandals to hang around the dorm in. I would also grab a pair of rain boots or winter boots for those wet and cold days this winter.

Scarves and Hats

When it comes to packing accessories, I would just limit it to hats, scarves and bralettes for the fall semester. Hats will eliminate all bad hair days! Pack at least one baseball cap and a neutral colored beanie. Last fall, my blanket scarf saved me! I would recommend packing at least one or two blanket scarves to keep you warm. My other favorite accessory is a bralette. They layer perfectly under any fashion top or sweater. I would recommend having at least one black and one white lace bralette to help add a little touch to your outfits this fall.

Everly Dress

When it comes to fashion tops and dresses, I wouldn’t pack too many. You will need some for those days that you want to dress up or go out with friends. But, you also want to make sure to leave room in your closet for new items that you will want to buy from the local boutiques near campus.

I know we all have our go to t-shirt that we like to lounge in and it’s okay to bring a few of those with you, but keep in mind that your t-shirt collection will expand during college. There’s always t-shirts being given away on campus and during events.

I hope this has helped you with getting ready for the fall semester and makes your transition into the new dorm less stressful. Just remember, you can always come home and visit during weekends and holidays to grab more clothes!

Share with us some of your everyday must have items!

Trend Alert: Sherpa Pullovers and Vests

Sherpa for men and womenFALL IN LOVE WITH SHERPA

Dylan by True Grit

Introducing the item of the year from True Grit Clothing: sherpa Pullovers and Vests! These pullovers and vests are to die for! The ultra-plush fabric is perfect for the colder weather heading our way. The main question we receive about these hot items are regarding the sizing and the difference between True Grit and Dylan.

True Grit:

Built for men. True Grit pullovers are crafted with a squared hem and side slits. These men’s pullovers have an oversized fit and are perfect for layering. When men purchase True Grit pullovers, we recommend ordering their true size. For women ordering a True Grit pullover, we recommend ordering down one size for the perfect, slightly oversized fit.

Dylan by True Grit:

Dylan is the women’s brand made by True Grit clothing. The women’s Dylan pullovers have a slimmer fit and also feature side slits. Made in U.S. women’s sizing instead of junior’s, these pullovers are cut with an oversized construction. We recommend ordering your true size in these pullovers to receive the desired fit.
