Ring in the Spring with New Spring Dresses

Lately every blog has been about how excited I am about spring being sooooo close and sorry, but here is another one. I mean winter clothes are cute too so don’t get me wrong about that, but GIMME ALL THE SPRING DRESSES ALREADY!! Here at Glik’s we have been getting in all our spring clothing and oh my goodness are they the epitome of all the good things that I cannot wait for with warmer weather.

A good spring dress is such a vital investment us girls make every season. The spring dress is the essential piece we wear to outdoor weddings, surprise date nights, summer music concerts, and probably on a couple warm autumn days when we refuse to wear those jeans quite yet.

Here are just a few of the spring dress that I am in love with (plus a couple footwear options to go with it!)…

Amuse-Wrap-Dress-1-8More-Buckle-Bootie-Lt-Tan-2The Amuse Society Faux Wrap Dress is a nice longer sleeved dress but still with the mini length look. This dress is perfect for the wedding receptions or days you have to go to class all day long. Plus this vintage inspired dress in stripe print is really trending right now and this surplice style dress gives everyone a flattering shape. I love them with the Qupid Shoes Prenton Perforated Ankle Booties in black but for a more casual look try the Soda Shoes More Ankle Booties.

Black Dress - EdwardsvilleArya-Perf-Cutout-Heels-TaupeThe Fate Sleeveless Ruffle Bodycon Dress in black has the ruffle sleeveless design I cannot get enough of! This could be your new LBD or just a fun dress to throw on before a spontaneous night out with friends. Try it with a pair of knee high boots or with the Soda Shoes Arya Perforated Cut Out Heels.

Elan-Sage-Dress-OOTD-1-17Bork-Ankle-Strap-Sandals-BLK-2The Elan Clothing High Neck Sleeveless Dress in Sage is a gorgeous shade of green that just reminds us of all the May flora that I cannot wait for. This dress is super comfortable and is made of a lightweight stretch knit fabric. The Qupid Chamber Distressed Strappy Heels look perfect with this shift dress, but I also love them with the Bork Toe Loop Sandals for when you just need an outfit to run to get ice cream with friends.

Everly Striped Dress - EdwardsvilleBork-Ankle-Strap-Sandals-Taupe-1The Everly Clothing Striped Midi Dress is one of our newest arrivals. With a midi style and the flattering stripe this dress will easily be a go to for whatever event you have this season. This Striped Midi Dress will be perfect for day or night! Plus this dress has pockets, and who doesn’t love that! This dress is going to look great with a denim jacket or a cardigan on those chillier spring nights. For a simple look try it with the Bork Ankle Strap Toe Loop in Taupe or dress it up with your favorite booties.

If you weren’t ready for spring yet, you definitely have spring fever after seeing these warm weather dresses. These four dresses are perfect because you can easily dress them up or down depending on shoes and accessories. For even more spring fever check out Gliks.com!

{Shoes} Pretty in Print

I have a feeling that this summer nearly every girl with a spare dollar will spend it on a pair of fabulous shoes! Nothing can be done about this. The unstoppable obsession over bold vibrant colors and loud eye-catching prints this season is causing girls everywhere to go ‘gaga’ over trendy statement shoes.

Printed Shoes.

I think we can all agree that a bold print can perk up any pair of shoes. Whether it is a platform pump, wedge, ballet flat, sandal or even a cute pair of sneaks, you can utilize a print to liven up your look or possibly to build an outfit around.

Animal Instinct

Animal prints, such as leopard, tiger, cheetah and python, will be a huge trend this summer. Let your inner shoe animal out of its cage and give a wild flare to any plain tee & jeggings outfit.

Flirty Florals

You will also see floral prints like ditsy & cabbage rose blossoming on shoes along with super feminine touches of crochet and lace. Dainty details and girlish prints add a sweet demure to any cardigan and summer dress or skirt outfit.

Tribal Prints

Aztec, Navajo, global & ethnic are still key prints for this 2012 spring / summer. Spice up a pair of vibrantly colored jeggings, V-neck tee and basic blazer outfit with chic tribal print shoes.

A Dress to Impress: Jack by BB Dakota

It’s time to thin out your closet! Get your heavy sweaters, thick socks, long underwear and snow boots consolidated into a small box labeled ‘Winter Storage’ and make room. Even though that silly sun keeps playing peek-a-boo with the seemingly constant overcast clouds and teasing us with warmer ‘ish’ temperatures, we all know; spring is coming.

So, get out your gardening tools, because BB Dakota and Jack by BB Dakota dresses are beginning to blossom at Glik’s in this Spring’s hottest trends; vivid colors, delicate laces, quirky prints and flirty stripes!

Walk the line:

 Whether Chevron, Missoni, Mitered, or Shadow, a hot print trending this spring is stripes. The Jack by BB Dakota Lund Dress is a wonderful example of fashion’s fun power when you pair a super trendy horizontal strip print with vivid island colors of medallion yellow & surf blue.  Then, put it on a feminine flirty fit-n-flare dress. A fashionista’s best friend is her cardigan, so have fun with this pleated dress while the weather is still slightly cool by pairing it with tights, a cute pair of flats and a cute skinny belt.

Seeing Spots:

 This spring you’ll see a refreshing take on a classic trend with polka dots. These playful circles are simple yet youthful.  Have fun with this quirky print like Jack by BB Dakota did when they introduced the Cruz Dress in all it’s brightly colored, chiffon glory. Pair this oh-so-sweet frock with cute socks, spring inspired wedges and your fav-cropped sweater or don a fun blazer.

Do You See Me Now:

It is all about COLOR!! I use all caps when saying this, because with paradise themed names like, Tangerine Tango, Margarita, Cabaret, Cockatoo and Solar Power who can’t help but grab for their sunglasses and hope for a bronzed tan! Can you feel the sun’s warmth yet? I bet you can when you’re in a vividly bright, body con dress like the Jemma Dress from Jack by BB Dakota’s Spring 2012 line.  Think bold when you’re in this BB Dakota dress, pair it with color block platform heels and a cropped jacket or blazer, but go minimal on the accessories since you don’t want to overload your look.

Everything’s Coming Up Roses:

Lilies, daisies, tulips, and daffodils…  you name it; if it is a flower then you will be seeing it. Fitting since it is spring, right?  We promise that you will be seeing head-to-toe floral this season along with feminine shapes and delicate accents. The Bardot Floral Dress from Jack by BB Dakota is a darling example of all things super girly. This super cute strappy dress embodies “female” with its bustier style top and pleated flare skirt! Wear this dress with a color ‘pop’ cardigan belted at you waist, tights and cute spring flats for a casual look or dress it up with a blazer and heels.

Spring 2012 trends are all abloom and we’re excited to see more apparel BB Dakota apparel! Come get your fashionista fix and see more of the fantastic spring dresses from Jack by BB Dakota at gliks.com or any Glik’s store location nearest to you!
