Just In: New Styles of Piko Tops and Dresses

If you’re just as obsessed with Piko tops and dresses, then Glik’s newest arrivals will have you doing a happy dance! These brand new styles are equally as comfortable as your already beloved Piko tops and come in brand new cuts and colors!

Piko tops

I’ll be frank; there have been times when I’ve asked myself, staring at my closet, “How many Piko shirts do you really need?” That question becomes easier to answer with every new style of Piko dress or shirt we receive. I. Need. All. Of. Them.

The Piko tunic is basic enough that you can pile on accessories, or it can look just as chic paired with a simple choker and topknot. You can also opt to wear a bralette underneath to add a little more coverage.

If you’re into the oversized look, you could style one of these dresses as a top. Simply throw on your Piko with skinny jeans, tuck in the front, and viola! Look at you, stepping outside the style box.

There’s not a single style of Piko that disappoints. From the keyhole tops, to criss cross dresses, to basic Piko tops and dresses, there’s a fit that works for every body!

Spring is quickly approaching and this warm weather is just teasing us to buy new clothes!

Lace Up Sweaters: The New Wardrobe Staple

Can we talk about lace up sweaters for a minute?

It’s no secret; sweaters are a wardrobe staple and will never go out of style. Personally, there’s nothing I love better than a basic, chunky knit sweater. Well, that was the case until lace up sweaters started popping up all over my Instagram feed.

The lace up trend elevates a basic sweater into something much more stylish and coveted. Just add a cute pair of ankle boots and simple accessories, and voila! Instant #fashionblogger style status with minimal effort. This alone is reason enough for me to get behind a trend.

This updated style gives a different vibe than a traditional chunky kit. You can easily wear a lace up top off the shoulder for a look that’s a little sexy, or you can wear it as is for an every day look. One sweater that can be styled two different ways? All the more reason to love a good lace up top!

Because lace up sweaters are a little more open, you’ll be able to take them from fall to winter to spring with ease. Major bonus points for versatility.

I’m also really loving sweaters that lace up the back. This detail adds an unexpected twist that takes a piece from basic to B-A-M!

Spring 2016 Color Trend: Olive Green

While dark green is not the usual suspect for a spring/summer color palette, the hue is taking over the world of fashion in a big way. Gone are the days when neutral colors strictly included blacks, whites, and tans. Say hello to your new go-to color: green.

Whether it’s a military green or a shade of olive, this is a trend you’ll want to try. Here are a few of my favorite ways to wear fashion’s army green trend:

olive green pants

Olive green pants are a must thing spring! Balance out wearing colored bottoms by pairing them with a neutral top. Try a black cold shoulder shirt layered over a lace bralette for the perfect #ootd this spring.

OLIVE_GREEN_DRESS

An army green dress will be a staple in your spring/summer rotation. A piece like this can be worn dressed down with Converse shoes and a jean jacket, or you can dress it up by pairing it with a statement necklace and cute sandals.

You can also rock two trends at once with an olive green shirt and white skinny jeans! A look like this can easily take you from a long day in class to a night out with friends in no time!

Trend Alert: Color Block Fashion

Color Block Tees
We’ve seen it in the ’90s and then again in 2011 and now its back! This color block trend for 2016 is much different from what we have seen in the past. In 2011, the color block fashion that was trending was pairing colored pants with a different colored top. Now, this fashion trend is all in one piece. A brand that we love at Glik’s, Vanilla Bay, does this trend the right way with their shirts and dresses!

Bohemian Style |Wild and Free|

From Vanessa Hudgens to Kate Hudson to your favorite fashion blogger on Instagram, every free-spirited babe is rocking the boho chic look this spring. If your inner hippie is begging to be let loose when you see boho looks, don’t be afraid to let her out to play!

Printed pants are the piece to try if you want to dip your toes in the tie-dye water without fully submerging yourself in a boho look.

bohemian_style

A printed pant can put off a laid-back flower-child vibe without giving the appearance of trying too hard. Take a nod from gypsy queen Kate and style a relaxed fitting pair with a solid colored Piko top, beaded necklace and round sunglasses. Complete your look with strappy gladiator sandals on your feet and loose beachy waves in your hair.

bohemian style

Flared printed pants paired with an off the shoulder shirt can also help you embrace your inner boho chic fashionista. A solid colored top can easily balance out intricately patterned bottoms. Don’t forget to add long, layered necklaces and platform sandals for a bohemian style look that’s Instagram worthy.

If you’re like me, you’re probably now head over (gladiator) heels in love with bohemian style. Find inspiration in these boho-meets-street-style looks and add your own personal touches to make them reflect your inner flower child. I suggest a half-up boho bun hairstyle or go all out and make your own flower crown.

3 Reasons to Love Cold Shoulder Tops

Get your finger on the pulse of one of spring’s hottest fashions: cold shoulder tops.

You’ve probably been noticing exposed shoulders popping up in all of your favorite stores and while you may still be on the fence about why you should dare to bare, here are three reasons why you should take the risk.

3 Reasons to Love Cold Shoulder Tops

  1. You don’t have to bare it all.

Open shoulder tops are a happy medium between completely baring your shoulders and keeping covered up all spring. Plus, this style of top doesn’t require fussing with a strapless bra and you can still comfortably wear a cami underneath.

  1. It’s a high fashion trend that translates into real life.

There are times when Fashion Week hits, insanely hot styles are shown on the runway, and then we all think to ourselves, “How the heck (or where on earth) would I wear that?” Cold shoulders are a welcomed exception to this fashion conundrum.

  1. This silhouette has staying power.

Trends come and go but that is no reason to shy away from buying a cold shoulder shirt. If you’re focused on building a better wardrobe and shying away from fast fashion pieces, a cold shoulder top is still a piece to consider investing in because they have been (and will continue) to show up season after season.
