Get Your Stripes On

Horizontal or vertical, thick or thin, we do not discriminate stripes at any time throughout the year. So, if you’re like any of us, you consider stripes to be a pretty core part of your year-round wardrobe.  This being said, go ahead and get your stripes on!

Stripes are super flattering, trendy, and mostly considered a basic! We are seeing stripes in so many sizes and colorways in 2018, and we are all about it. We are here to tell you that if you wear your stripes strategically, you won’t be disappointed.  Vertical stripes, such as pinstripes, create a slimming and lengthening affect.  Vertically striped pants and dresses lengthen your legs and torso and make your façade more visually appealing. If you are trying to make your shoulders or hips look bigger and fuller, opt for horizontal stripes!  These patterns will help you create a more proportionate look as well. From tops, pants, dresses, and even shoes, stripes are making their appearance known in today’s fashion world. So, why not add to your collection obsession?

The best thing about stripes is that you can find something that fits for any occasion.  They are a great print for all ages, too! For a casual vibe, pair a striped tank or cropped top with your favorite pair of boyfriend jeans or mini skirt.  Or, if you’ve got a date night or party planned, whip out a chic striped jumpsuit or dress and everyone won’t be able to stop talking about your look!

Keeping all of this in mind, you really can’t go wrong with striped clothing! Now, go ahead and get your stripes (and shopping) on! Shop now at www.gliks.com 🙂

Weekends Out

Honestly, this past weekend was the first weekend in a long time that I have felt okay with leaving my jacket hung up in my closet at home. To say the least, I literally skipped down my stairs and into the street like a kid. Childish, I know.

I am completely okay with admitting my excitement over summer, sun, swimming, my developing tan, being outside, and most importantly, weekend road trips!  We’re just two weeks shy of Memorial Day weekend people! This holiday is where families and groups of friends travel to beaches, lake houses and campgrounds for barbecues, boating, daylong golf outings, and fairs.

So with the return of the sun, its warmth and the much-welcomed showing of skin, it’s time to give your wardrobes an upgrade!

Beach Action.

The first thing I think of when it comes to Memorial Day weekend is swimming. So no matter where you go, be sure to have your cutest bikini packed with a few necessities. I’ve chosen this super cute crochet fringe flyaway sweater from Oracle Fox for Billabong, the Trinity destructed cutoff shorts from Silver Jeans Co, and partnered them with a chic fedora, some braided jute sandals, and finished the look with a colorful tribal print beach bag to store your beach essentials.

Afternoon Out.

Being that I am a HUGE fan of all things fringe right now AND colored denim, I thought it would be cute to partner this boho chic Belize fringe top from Jack by BB Dakota with a bright pair of orange Flying Monkey jeggings. If you’re out on an afternoon shopping spree with the girls or a grill out with the fam, an easy way to accessorize is with a pair of retro wayfarer sunglasses, some Pura Vida bracelets. To add some sass try tying up your hair with a cute printed scarf.

Down on the Boardwalk.

So you may have had a long day out in the sun and a shower is out of the question until your new tan has had a chance to set in for a few more hours. That’s okay. Take it from the beach to the street just by slipping into the BB Dakota Dora dress and let its soft striped jersey knit set your sun exposed skin free. Keep it stylishly simple with a pair of platform wedges and sunglasses, and set your style savvy apart with a neon crossbody bag.

 

Remember that it’s the weekend and bringing your WHOLE wardrobe isn’t necessary. Resort town = SHOPPING heaven, and you need room in your suitcase for all of your new fashion finds. Look for any of these fab items online at gliks.com or visit a Glik’s store location nearest to you!

Weekends Out

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!
