{Jeggings} Ways to Wear Them.

After knowing what jeggings are, and making the vow to find them in every color, you might need some tips on how to style them! There are several different looks that you can create with jeggings by pairing them with different styles of tops, footwear and accessories.

To Look Cool…
If you want to sport a cool, casual look, wear jeggings with a loose, long top. Wear a beaded necklace, a pair of ballet flats and carry an over-sized hobo bag. You can wear this look on the daily no matter if you heading to class or on your next trip to the market!

To Look Hot…
If you are blessed with a good figure, wear your jeggings with sky-high platform pumps, an statement clutch and a silk dolman top tucked in. If you are on the heavier side, wear an empire style top with your jeggings as it will give out the illusion of a thin waist!

To Look Trendy…
If you want to follow Hollywood, pair up your jeggings with knee-high boots, or if you are brave, thigh-high boots. Wear a long comfy v-neck tee and finish it off with a tailored blazer. This three layered look along with the super sexy boots will definitely make many heads turn in your direction!

To Look Sporty…
For those of you who want a casual, sporty look, pairing the jeggings with sneakers and a loose, long t-shirt or a cute sweatshirt is a good idea. Of course, you can always enhance this particular look by adding sneaks or tops in crazy colors or those displaying bold and comical quotes.

Aztec, Navajo and Tribal prints are hot this summer.  We started seeing these bright designs on cozy knits this past winter, and now the trend is being continued on through light, colorful shirts and dresses designed with the warm months in mind.  These classic designs have a BoHo chic feel to them, making them perfect for just about any occasion, depending on the accessories.

This dress from Mind Code is perfect for either day or night.  Pair it with your favorite gladiator sandals for the beach or dress it up for date night with a pair of wedges.

This great shirt from Valentine looks great paired with jeans and a chic Boho bag for a day at the mall.

Pair some feathered earings with this fabulous Navajo inspired dress from Lush for a great traditional look.  This dress is also a razor back style, which is another hot look trend right now.

These prints look great with turquoise or feather accessories.  Add gladiator sandals or wedges and a BoHo bag with fringe detailing and you’re all set.

Spring 2011: Whats Hot

The New Year is here which means a whole new year full of fresh and hot new fashion. It can be pretty overwhelming with all of these new trends and new takes on older ones. But lucky for you Glik’s buyers and style experts have stalked the streets if LA and New York to bring you the best styles of Spring 2011.

The Bohemian look is making a steady come back this spring with Peasant tops, loose printed dresses and flirty floral.

Anything with a crochet design is also hot for spring. Glik’s had a few fly away sweaters with crochet detail this winter but now it can be found on tops, dresses, vests and more.

Lace is also staying strong for spring, with more of a delicate vintage look instead of the tough black lace of 2010. Flower child is in for spring with these trends.

The dolman top trend that I blogged about previously is continuing on into 2011. We have a ton of brightly colored and striped dolmans in stores right now. These tops will look best with a scarf and leggings for the remainder of the cold months and great with shorts and a necklace for the warm ones.

A little bit of the strong military trend from this past year is finding its way into 2011! At Glik’s we have light canvas and cotton utility jackets for the colder spring mornings and nights. My favorite is by Jack, I can already see myself throwing it over a cute crochet top!

Cozies are kind of like fly away sweaters without sleeves, perfect for the warmer weather of spring. These vests are perfect for the layering look, whether it’s over a dress or jeans and a tank top. Cozies can be that extra layer that takes you from fashionable to fashionista. Sleeveless vests have a similar look to a Cozie and are also a must-have for spring.

The brand Sinful is hot off the city blocks of Los Angeles with tops that are more then your average t-shirt. These edgy shirts display artistic symbols like hearts, crosses, wings ect. and are commonly embelished with stones or metallic detail. Sinful takes your spring jean-and –a-t-shirt to a whole new level.

Mixing knits and woven is also hot for spring. Having a top with knitted detail on top of a classic woven is called “Mixed Media”. This trend takes a classic look and turns it edgy with the blend of two fabrics.

The Cut-Out shoulder trend adds sass to any outfit. Dresses with Cut-Out backs or sides were hot for 2010 but for spring 2011, it’s all about exposed shoulders. Another trend with exposed shoulders are strapless tops. Perfect for the sun in spring and summer. These tops look best over shorts or tucked into a miniskirt. A cute straw fedora would perfect either look.

Speaking of shoulders, one trend that is staying for 2011 is the One-Shoulder. Whether it’s a top or a dress, one shoulder is here to stay. The tops look totally fabulous with skinny jeans and pumps.

Spring means back to basics, with tanks and tees getting pulled out of storage. Update your plain tank top with a Racerback style one. These tanks are perfect for layering under t-shirts and sweaters, or plain with shorts for hotter weather. If your wardrobe is more classic and you need a basic tank or tee Glik’s has a huge selection of Lycra, cotton and lace ones for whatever style you rock.

Stay tuned for more Spring ’11 trends!
