Five Looks with One Key Piece: The Love Stitch Button Down

header

As the seasons change, it can be hard to find core pieces in your wardrobe that you are able to style year round.  So, we decided to help you out a bit by showing you FIVE different looks with ONE key piece! The item on topic is the Love Stitch Clothing Striped Chambray Button Down Top.  Button downs and vertical stripes are super trendy and stylish, so combined they make the perfect pair! Keep reading to see how we styled this shirt five different ways! (P.S. In our opinion, we think all of these items should be core pieces in your wardrobe!)

1. Wear Alone with Denim & Sandals

1

This first outfit is great for those casual spring days and cool summer nights.  Button up this Love Stitch striped top and roll up your sleeves for some laid back vibes.  Every girl needs a durable pair of denim jeans in her closet, so why not opt for a pair of KanCan Jeans? These are the KanCan Jeans Railroad Stripe Ankle Detail in Medium Wash.  Keeping things on the casual route, we thought these Mia Shoes strappy sandals were perfect! The neutral coloring and comfort footbed make these sandals great to wear all day, every day. Depending on your style, finish off the look with a lace bralette and some basic jewelry and you are all set.

2. Wear under Overalls with Heeled Booties.

This next look can also go dressy or casual, depending on your plans! Overalls are totally making a comeback and we are all for it! Pairing the Love Stitch Clothing Striped Chambray Button Down Top underneath these distressed overalls makes for a super chic outfit. We paired the look with a pair of ankle booties from My Delicious Shoes! The vertical stripes and heeled booties elevate your look and give you a taller appearance. To dress down the look, try wearing a pair of Converse sneakers or flat sandals. Since we love the criss cross trend, try unbuttoning the Love Stitch shirt a little, wear this strappy tank top, and unbuckle one of the straps from the overalls!

3. Layer Over Basic Tee with Denim & Mules.

This third look with your key piece item is our favorite! Keeping the striped shirt open gives the look a little edge and enhances your possibilities! Now you are able to show off all of your basic or graphic tees! We paired this look with a criss cross top from Lime N Chili and KanCan jeans. Mules are also super fashionable right now, so the Qupid Shoes Tuxedo Mules just stood out to us! If you are wearing this look while taking a walk around the park or while shopping, change it up by tying your button down shirt around your waist and you’ve got a whole new look.

4. Wear with Denim Skirt & Peep Toe Heels.

5

Now, this look will be able to take you into the night in style.  The neutral, chambray coloring and vertical stripes already dress this look up.  By pairing it with this black denim skirt from KanCan, you’ll be ready for a night out in no time!  Depending on the look you are trying to achieve, roll the sleeves up or down and tuck in the shirt to your skirt. Add some statement earrings and a lace bralette and you’ve got your fourth outfit in the bag.  To dress this look up even more, rock this pair of peep toe heels by Qupid Shoes! The tall chunky heel and elastic vamp are sure to hold up while you are dancing the night away.

5. Layer Under Cardigan with Denim & Boots.

3

This last look is perfect for cold winter or fall days when you still want to be stylish. Start off with your base, a strappy basic tank top.  Then, put on your striped button down top from Love Stitch and button it all the way up or keep it open (whichever you prefer). Lastly, slip on this cozy chunky cardigan from Wishlist. Layers layers layers is the name of the game when it comes to cold weather, so why sacrifice warmth for style? With this look, you can achieve both! End the look with a pair of neutral ankle boots, like these from Qupid Shoes, and you are ready to tackle the day with your head held high.

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!
Screen shot 2018-01-16 at 12.02.10 PMTo make the striped shirt even better, it’s one of the most flattering prints. 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.

Glik’s Nautical Guide for the Landlocked: Sperry Top-Sider Shoes

sperryblogtrio

Favorited by many, these non-slip boating shoes were born in 1935 to Paul Sperry when he carved grooves in a gum rubber sole after watching his dog race effortlessly across the ice. His passion drove him to success and Sperry became famous to sailors, military and civilian alike.

Fast-forwarding to present, Sperry Top-Sider has combined their technical attributes with a fashion forward mindset, creating  casual and stylish footwear for everyone. We are excited to show you three of our new spring 2014 arrivals that just hit www.gliks.com.

Stripes and white denim are huge Nautical fashion trends.

Stripes are an important key to styling out your nautical look. Whether you decide to embrace this trend in a big way, or choose to be subtle, this Made in the USA striped tank by Mind Code is perfect paired with these high-waisted white cut-off shorts. Don’t be afraid to accessorize with your favorite Pink Pewter headband and a pair of bottle-opener sunglasses. Completing this “fun in the sun” ensemble is a donut infinity scarf and our new Sperry Top-Sider Women’s Angelfish Boat Shoe in Navy/Serape.

Mesh and Red, White, and Blue are ways you can add to your Nautical inspired look.

Perhaps one of the more understated nautical inspired fashions that we LOVE to see are mesh knits! These are fun to style with your favorite colored tank or cami, creating a different look each time. Red, white, and blue are fundamental colors found in nautical inspired fashions, so we paired this fun top with Americana shorts and sunnies. We add some more stripes to the look with our popular scrunched striped infinity scarf and Sperry’s Angelfish shoes in Red/Bretton. Don’t forget to add bracelets and other accessories to kick it up a notch!

Layered wovens and cardigans or sweaters are a perfect way to add a preppy spin on your Nautical look.

If you really want to unleash your preppy side, we recommend layering wovens under a knitted cardigan or sweater, which is perfect for the chilly breeze that can sail its way into your sun-filled day. This Roar button-down shirt is multi-functional, showing us that layering can be fun and quirky with this Volcom flamingo sweater. Prep it up some more by throwing on your favorite Flying Monkey Jeans and cuffing the bottoms to show off the stripes on your Sperry Top-Sider Angelfish boat shoes.

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!
