The Print of the Season: The Vertical Stripe

Untitled design (1)

Nautical stripes were all the rage in 2017, but in 2018 we are changing directions, literally, with vertical stripes. Be ready to want a pinstripe pattern in at least three different styles this spring! Whether the classic collared, the front tie, the off the shoulder, or the flirty jumper, we have all the styles at Gliks and we are dying to share with you what we think will be one of the classiest looks this season.

One of the best things about a striped shirt is that it is a neutral style and color, so it can go with whatever you pair it with. So go ahead and wear it with your burgundy moto leggings, your dark wash denim, your light wash denim, or your classic boyfriend jeans. For a stand out look, try mixing it with other patterns, like a pair of printed shorts or with your floral embroidered jeans or skirt.

Since this is a neutral for your wardrobe, you can wear the vertical stripe with your brown suede booties, or your black strappy sandals. Also, try wearing whatever odd colors of shoes you have stashed in the back of your closet, time to break ’em out since there is officially something to match them with! Basically, the striped shirt is a dream come true in the mornings when you want to throw some clothes on but don’t want to waste the effort of finding all the “right” things to match with it. Now everything is fair game!

The vertical stripes create a small optical illusion to make us all a little taller and a little leaner. This style will help us get those New Years Resolutions bods we swore we’d get this year.

What ever style of the vertical stripe you decide to try, it’ll be a versatile addition to your wardrobe. So go ahead, ‘add to cart’ with the guilt free knowledge that the stripe pattern will be your new favorite print of the season.

The Print of the Season: The Vertical Stripe

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.
