Styles We Love: Romper Edition

styles we loveRompers are basically just a dress that offers a little more freedom, and we are here for it. They are also a socially acceptable onesie that you can go out in, we are here for that! Nothing is better than simple fashion that does the work for you, and rompers are basically in OT with how cute they make us look with zero effort on our part.

Another one of our favorite things about rompers is that they always look good with whatever shoes you pair with them. As you can see from the photos, they look absolutely perfect with just a bralette and maybe a little bit of jewelry depending on the occasion.

Rompers are also a great piece to transition you into fall weather. You can just throw on some booties, maybe a cardigan, and have you have yourself a fall ready look. Or if you really want a trendy style, throw a long sleeve flowy white shirt underneath; you’ll be warm and have a super stylish look. Thankfully we have about two and half more months of good summer weather and don’t have to think about how to wear our cute rompers in autumn weather quite yet!

If you haven’t added a romper to your wardrobe yet, now is the time! If you are already a romper feign, then you will need to check out the gorgeous new styles that we just added to Gliks.com! Below we have 5 rompers that will be just what your closet has needed!

Summer Dresses~ The Maxi Dress

Summer Dresses

Easily one of the best parts of the summer season are dresses, and while there are so many styles of dresses today, we are going to be talking about the maxi dress. Nothing beats throwing on a dress in the morning and walking out the door looking #flawless. Whether you are wearing a maxi dress for a special occasion or for days of running around town, here are 4 maxi dresses that we are currently crushing on here at Glik’s.

3

The first maxi dress is by Everly. Everly is a brand that you know will always have quality clothing with a girly, feminine style. This dress is a super versatile wrap dress in a beautiful colorway. Our shoe recommendation would be a simple peep toe mule shoe or try an espadrille platform shoe to give you some height! Honestly, any shoe or accessory would pair well with this dress because of its beautiful neutral color, but you should definitely try and accessorize with your favorite sun hat!

2

If you want a more casual dress for everyday wear, you have to check out the Elan Clothing Halter Striped Maxi Dress in Navy. It’s a jersey knit dress with on seam hand pockets, and a rounded hem. Try knotting the bottom and putting on some strappy heels with your favorite accessories for a more dressed up look for nights out. We are loving them with some platform espadrille wedges to give you a little height with your look. For a comfier style try pairing it with some super comfy Sanuk sandals for pool days.

4

We of course have to talk about the two piece maxi dress option. Illa Illa has so many adorable two piece sets that are just perfect for summer. The floral patterns are the perfect summer pattern. This particular set comes in two different colorways and has a shorts lining, which is amazing for days where you want to be on the move and wear a dress. Bonus! ~ you can always pair the top with your favorite distressed shorts and some Borks. Or you can try wearing the skirt with a solid Piko top and some strappy sandals by Soda. There’s really so many outfit options with a two piece set!

1

The Storia Palm Print maxi dress is another one of our faves. Palm print, ruffles, and off the shoulder are very on trend details of the season, and this dress gives you all of those things in the most stylish way! This dress will look amazing with the City Classified Hudson shoes or any other neutral colored low heel. This type of shoe will perfectly match everything in your closet and you definitely need to add our straw bag to give your look more of those beachy vibes.

Shop these styles, and more, at gliks.com! Or, check out Glik’s Official Instagram account for styling ideas for any occasion!

How You Need to Be Wearing White Denim This Season

How to wear White Denim

White denim has always been a thing, but if you have ever been wary of the white denim trend, it’s time to face your fears! LUCKILY, there are so many styles or ways you can wear white denim, so you don’t have to just do the classic white skinny jean (but classics, are classics for a reason). You can mix up the white denim trend and try a denim skirt, or a pair of shortalls, or a trendy skort.

White denim can either be a statement piece for your outfit or it can be a way to showcase your favorite piece of clothing. This must have item makes any outfit look clean and fresh, which is perfect for summer, but you better believe that these can also roll you into fall (but that’s a blog post for another day.) Here are 4 ways you need to try wearing your white denim this season.

Monochromatic White Denim trend

Monochromatic: White denim with a white top, is definitely the most daring of all the white denim trends. But to make it easier, just remember that you probably also loved the all black wardrobe trend and this is basically the same thing but the more summer friendly version of the two (aka less likely to absorb all those warm little sun rays). This look is so clean and simple, without a doubt it will make you look sophisticated and put together.

White Denim with a Pop of Color

A Pop of Color: Basically, the same concept as the monochromatic look, but throw some of your favorite pieces on there to make them really stand out. Your outfit becomes the canvas and you get to showcase whatever trendy item you wanna show off! I recommend, a jean jacket or any other of your favorite dressier outerwear pieces. If it’s too hot for a jacket, throw on some statement earrings, a daring shoe choice, or a colorful bag. You can even opt for a more muted pop of color with a simple beige or a light blue.

Statement tops with white jeans

A Statement Top: A lot of jeans can take away from a beautiful statement top, but with a pair of white jeans you are making sure that the shirt that “you just need to have or you would die” is the center of attention!  A pair of white jeans also makes that shirt that otherwise might have been borderline casual, an office ready look! Then you can throw on a neutral shoe to accent the top more, or grab a statement shoe choice to compliment your blouse.

Casual outfit with white jean

Casual: A tee shirt and a pair of jeans, is always a good idea. AGAIN, (sorry I sound like a broken record over here) white denim elevates your jean and tee style! Classic denim shorts, for example, tend to be casual style piece, but white denim shorts look mature and classy with whatever you wear them with! So whether you throw on a basic graphic tee or a solid colored tank, you cannot go wrong with a basic tee and some white denim.

White denim is definitely a great option if you want to raise the denim bar. All it takes is one simple piece of denim to help you create very different styles. For more creative ideas on how to wear white denim be sure to check out the Glik’s Official Instagram, where we post outfit ideas and new arrivals! And to shop the best white jean pieces be sure to head over to Gliks.com. Tell us in the comments how you like to style your white denim!

Shoes That Won’t Hurt Your Feet or Your Budget

Adorable and Afforable (1)

Finding adorable and affordable shoes for your closet can be a pain. Especially in the summer time because we all know flip flops are not exactly known for their supportive soles. Here at Glik’s we actually have a large selection of shoes that will support your feet and your wallet. cc

City Classified Shoes | $29

 City Classified Shoes Comfort Andro Wedge Heels in Tan were made for your busy lifestyle.  They look like your classic micro wedge heel, but really they are jam packed with comfort. With a lined and padded footbed and a soft foam padding you’ll be able to wear these shoes all day!

 

5

Sperry Top Sider | $60

I love Espadrilles. Love them. But typically they have little to no sole or cushioning. This is where Sperry saves the day. Almost all their shoes have a memory foam footbed, ya know the stuff that people make mattresses out of? Yeah, these shoes are so comfy you could basically sleep on them.

4

Mia Shoes | $30

The Mia Shoes Lynn Strappy Sandals in Black and in Cognac are such a treat for a pair of strappy sandals. These gladiator style shoes have a super padded rubber outsole and footbed. Cute and actually a wearable sandal?! Get one in both colors, because these are going to be your summer staple.

Adorable and Afforable

Sanuk Yoga Sandals | $38

Okay, these shoes are kind of a no brainer with a name with the word yoga in it. You can also get these fun knitted sling style uppers in so many styles or colors. The footbed is made out of yoga mats, so you can definitely skip the yoga class, and get your Namaste on with the Sanuk Yoga Sandals.

3

Qupid Shoes | $20

Qupid shoes are great for their comfortability factor, since they all have a lightly cushioned footbed and a low price point. But my favorite Qupid Shoes lately are the Comfy Banded Slides that come in Carmel, Black, and White. These Comfy shoes are an ideal summer footwear option, they give you that simple sandal silhouette with a comfortable footbed.

With this selection of shoes at Glik’s you can have comfortable, trendy shoe styles without breaking your budget. For more styling tips and ideas be sure to check out Gliks’ Instagram! Happy shopping ya’ll!

 

Shoes That Won’t Hurt Your Feet or Your Budget

When to Wear Mules

When to Wear Mules (5)Mules have been a popular trend for a minute now and I just can’t get enough of them lately. This is definitely one shoe trend you don’t want to miss out on. To make sure you don’t miss any styling opportunity, here are 5 times that you can be putting your best mule wearing foot forward and rocking one of our favorite shoe trends.

When You Are Out To Enjoy The Day…When to Wear MulesHeeled mules literally elevate your style. Dresses and a simple laser cut mule go perfectly together for days out exploring the city and trying out that new totally instagramable coffee shop. I love a good pair of heeled mules with a midi dress, or actually any dress ever, you absolutely can’t go wrong with a pair of heeled mules and a dress.

When You Have Things To Get Done…When to Wear Mules (1)When I run errands, I know there is a 90% possibility that I will run into someone that I kind-of-sorta-know but definitely have to say hi to, when that happens I like to look somewhat presentable. Mules are ideal to throw on with your distressed jeans and your favorite comfy shirt. With this outfit combination you can fool everyone into thinking you’re the kind of girl who is fashionable and has time to buy a gallon of milk. Your new secret is safe here.

When You Are Out On The Town…When to Wear Mules (2)Its girls night and you have the perfect outfit and now you’ll have the perfect pair of shoes to match. Mules are so durable and totally dance friendly with a nice stacked heel. So go ahead and grab that romper and mules and be prepared to outshine your friends in all the group pictures tonight, girl.

When You Mean Business…When to Wear Mules (3)When you are at work its essential to have a shoe that keeps you comfy till 5pm rolls around. Mules are necessary for work because of their no back design. You won’t ever get that restrained feeling that other shoes tend to have. Again another simple put together look, just grab your basic black pants, a structured top, and you’re out the door on the way to grab your coffee.  You’ll be contently comfy the whole day at work, so you can focus on looking cute, getting your work done, and looking cute.

When You Would Rather Be On Vacation…

When to Wear Mules (4)One of the cool things about the mule shoe is that they can be a casual shoe as well. Throw them on with your beach lounge pants and instantly be the beach boho babe you know you were meant to be!

In case you need more time to mull over the mule trend, be sure to check out @gliksofficial on Instagram for all the outfit inspo you could possible ever want/need! And to shop all these styles and more check out gliks.com!

How to Create the Perfect Spring Capsule Wardrobe

How to make the perfect capsule wardrobe (1)

Don’t know what a capsule wardrobe is? Fundamentally, it is a minimalist approach to the things you keep in your closet. It’s trying to get more neutrals in your closet and less of those pieces that you can never seem to match with anything, besides that one skirt that you don’t even like that much. It will also help you save a little time and money by helping you figure out what you need to buy and skipping all the things that don’t really have a place for in your closet. At Gliks we have some items that are on trend, but are also basic essentials for the entirety of the spring season.

Capsule Wardrobe

To help you have the best spring capsule wardrobe possible, we found the 16 items that we think your closet cannot go without! For a little consistency we stuck to a color palette of about four different colors in various shades. However, many of these clothing items we listed come in a variety of colors and styles, so this capsule wardrobe can totally be adapted to fit your personal taste!

SHOP THE TOPCapsule Wardrobe (8)

Fate Clothing Off the Shoulder Striped Top | Jack By BB Dakota Delle Flare Sleeve Top | Elan Clothing Fray Hem Button Front Top

There are four trends that are going to be very pronounced in 2018. These trends are off the shoulder, stripes, flare sleeves, and button ups. We found 3 shirts that incorporate all these trends, in a subtle but chic way. These shirts are lightweight so they will be perfect for warm days, or you can layer over them with a warmer jacket for the colder days.

Capsule Wardrobe (9)

Piko Tops V-Neck Short Sleeve Shirt | Lime N Chili Criss Cross Short Sleeve Top

Everyone needs a comfy throw on tee for the days that you do not want to try and put together the perfect outfit ( but in our opinion jeans and a tee is the perfect outfit 🙂 ). Plus, these tees will look great under your overalls, with your denim skirts, or with a denim jacket. We definitely recommend having a tee that has a looser fit and you feel totally comfortable in. You can dress the right basic tee up or keep it casual.

ESSENTIALS IN BOTTOMS

Capsule Wardrobe (3)

KanCan Jeans Flare Highrise | Flying Monkey Jeans Twist-Seam Hem Skinny Jeans | KanCan Jeans Distressed Long Overalls

We are so happy that flare jeans and overalls are making a comeback! These flare jeans by KanCan are highwaisted, making them a comfortable fit for everyday wear and they will pair effortlessly with your shorter cropped tops. Everyone needs a good pair of medium wash denim in their closet. We personally love the twist-hem step hem jeans from Flying Monkey and they have an ankle crop fit, which makes them perfect for showing off your strappy sandals! At Gliks we have an array of overalls to choose from, but black overalls leave you with a neutral base that will naturally match with anything in your closet!

DRESSES ARE A GIRLS BFFCapsule Wardrobe (4)

Piko Dresses Short Sleeve Swing Dress With Pockets Jack By BB Dakota Off the Shoulder Dress | Everly Clothing Striped Midi Dress

One of our favorite things about spring is that it finally is warm enough for dresses. These three dresses incorporate some of those hot trends like off the shoulder, ruffles, and stripes. The Piko dress is a casual dress that will be perfect to throw on whenever you need something simple. The Off the Shoulder dress by BB Dakota has a slightly fancier vibe but its jersey knit fabric makes it a comfortable fit for everyday wear. The striped pattern of the Everly Clothing Striped Midi Dress gives you a fashionable option with the perfect length, stopping just below the knee. The best part of all these dresses is that they can easily be dressed up or down to fit whatever occasion you need.

THE OUTERWEAR

Capsule Wardrobe (7)

Elan Clothing Ruffle Shoulder Denim Jacket | Jack By BB Dakota Laren Vegan Leather Moto Jacket

For colder days, we found the two jackets that you absolutely need. These neutral outerwear options will go over every outfit! We love the ruffle denim jacket by Elan Clothing. It has a shorter fit, so it will look ah-ma-zing over your dresses or overalls. The vegan leather moto jacket by Jack By BB Dakota is made out of the softest faux leather material. We love this lighter colored leather jacket option for spring days and it will be perfect for nights out over your basic tee and ankle length jeans.

THE FOOTWEAR

Capsule Wardrobe (6)

Qupid Shoes Tuxedo Flats with Heel Strap | Outwoods Bork Diagonal Strap Sandals Qupid Shoes Core Perforated Peep Toe Heels

Now for the footwear options for your capsule wardrobe! Here are three pairs of shoes that will pull together all your spring looks. The Tuxedo shoe is an essential to your footwear collection, offering a comfortable footbed and covered vamp ballerina shoe design will look flawless for your everyday ensembles. Strappy sandals are essential to any spring outfit and in the color rose gold it will add a little bling to your looks. The peep toe heel is a fashionable option that will be great for dressing up any of your outfit combinations.

Now all you have to do is mix and match these pieces together to create the perfect spring looks. To shop all these spring capsule wardrobe essentials, head over to Gliks.com!

I mean winter clothes are cute too so don’t get me wrong about that, but GIMME ALL THE SPRING DRESSES ALREADY!! Here at Glik’s we have been getting in all our spring clothing and oh my goodness are they the epitome of all the good things that I cannot wait for with warmer weather.

Here are just a few of the spring dress that I am in love with (plus a couple footwear options to go with it!)…

Amuse-Wrap-Dress-1-8More-Buckle-Bootie-Lt-Tan-2The Amuse Society Faux Wrap Dress is a nice longer sleeved dress but still with the mini length look. This dress is perfect for the wedding receptions or days you have to go to class all day long. Plus this vintage inspired dress in stripe print is really trending right now and this surplice style dress gives everyone a flattering shape. I love them with the Qupid Shoes Prenton Perforated Ankle Booties in black but for a more casual look try the Soda Shoes More Ankle Booties.

This dress is super comfortable and is made of a lightweight stretch knit fabric. The Qupid Chamber Distressed Strappy Heels look perfect with this shift dress, but I also love them with the Bork Toe Loop Sandals for when you just need an outfit to run to get ice cream with friends.

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.

Screen shot 2018-01-18 at 1.45.58 PM

Screen shot 2018-01-18 at 11.28.40 AM

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.

Screen shot 2018-01-16 at 12.00.13 PMScreen shot 2018-01-16 at 12.00.58 PM

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.
Screen shot 2018-01-18 at 1.45.42 PM Screen shot 2018-01-18 at 1.44.55 PM

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 Main Strip Frayed Vneck Sweater

Screen shot 2018-01-08 at 2.17.53 PMScreen shot 2018-01-09 at 4.06.08 PMOkay, so winter may not be my favorite season, but there is always one thing that I love about cold days, and that’s the sweater options! There is something almost magical about getting a new sweater and the Main Strip Frayed Vneck Sweater is a sweater that I have been absolutely smitten with since the first time laid eyes on it. This frayed cropped sweater comes in mustard, grey, mauve, and ivory, which are all beautiful muted tones that go well with whatever shoes, pants, or jeans you can think to wear them with. Definitely one of my favorite things about this sweater is how many things I can wear it with and feel like am an actual vogue-fashionista-model. This sweater makes it easy to look cute and it is the kind of comfy feel-good sweater that you naturally gravitate to!

Screen shot 2018-01-08 at 2.19.01 PM

Another major plus about this sweater is that it can be transitioned into all the seasonal outfits you can think of. Right now I like to wear it with my black ripped Silver denim and throw on my Levi’s denim jacket for a little more edge (and maybe a CC Beanie for a little more warmth)! For a relaxed lazy weekend look, I love this sweater with my high waisted light washed denim and some fuzzy socks when I hang out at my friends’ homes. But as soon as the weather warms up, I cannot wait to style this sweater with a bralette, a faux suede taupe skirt, and ankle booties, for a look to wear at the office or a casual night out!

Screen shot 2018-01-08 at 2.18.35 PM

The Main Strip Frayed Vneck Sweater is the kind of quintessential piece for your wardrobe! No matter what the temperature may be outside this sweater will be there for any look. Now sweater weather can officially last forever (maybe without the cold weather part though).  To shop these looks be sure to head to Gliks.com!
