Stripes are such a simple pattern, but styling them can be tricky. The key to staying up on the trend is first choosing a versatile striped top. This basic Ginger G striped shirt features pencil stripes in taupe and white. Choosing a striped shirt with neutral colors will increase the number of different looks you’ll be able to throw together.

Put a Little Prep in Your Step: Sperry Top-Sider Shoes

Don’t know the port from the starboard?  Good news! Here at Glik’s we can show you the ropes to the fun and preppy nautical trend.

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!

Scrunched Stripe Infinity Scarf Available in 4 amazing colors!

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. Completing this outfit are anchor accessories and astute to boot glasses.

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!
