Booties to Step You into Spring

We can’t wait for warmer weather! And we cannot wait to transition these super cute booties out of our winter wardrobe and into our spring looks. The best thing about these booties is that while the weather is still cold we can wear them while we wait for Springy-er days (sigh).

Qupid-Prenton-Perf-Bootie-BLK-2

The Qupid Prenton Perforated Ankle Booties

These faux leather shoes with an oil finish are an awesome option for every day wear, whether to school or work. The cut out sides are perfect for showing off your frayed hem jeans. We love these shoes because they have major casual boho vibes! They are definitely the kind of shoe you throw on with your chunky sweater but also wear with your romper to see your favorite artist in concert. You can get these laid-back booties in Taupe or Black.

Prenton-Woven-Booties-1

The Qupid Prenton Woven Ankle Booties

These shoes have a chunky stacked heel and trendy almond toe design. The Prenton Woven Ankle has a stunning intertwined design on the leatherette uppers. You can easily throw these shoes on and off with the hook and loop fastener strap design. We love these shoes because they have a super unique design, you will want to wear these with your favorite denim all the time. But no matter what you decide to wear with these shoes, they will help make your outfit unique and distinctive! You can get these trendsetting shoes in either a Light Grey or a Taupe color.

Qupid-Tuxedo-Laser-Cut-Ballerina-Bootie---Nutmeg

The Qupid Tuxedo Laser Cut Ballerina Ankle Booties

These shoes are the kind of things dreams are made of! The laser cut detailing on this shoe is some beautiful attention to detail. With a low cut style that looks wonderful with your distressed jeans. Or imagine it with a lightweight Piko dress to wear on warmer days out. We love these shoes because they are not super “heeled” like other booties for days you don’t feel like adding the extra height to your look. These booties have a dainty “ballerina shoe” feel to them, so you can feel as lightweight as these shoes when you wear them out. You can get the Qupid Tuxedo Laser Cut Ballerina Ankle Booties in a rich Nutmeg color or in an elegant Black color. Both practical and chic, these booties are a great option for the transition into the spring!

Any of these three shoes will help you take the cold steps into your spring looks. These are just some of the booties we have been crushing on lately, for even more booties check out our site at Gliks.com!

The Best Boyfriend You’ll Ever Have…

boyfriend jeans

Why are you not wearing boyfriend jeans yet? No, really. Gone are the days of only wearing stick-straight-second-layer-of-skin-looks-great-but-man-it’s-hard-to-breathe skinny jeans.

This relaxed fit has been around for quite some time, but the trend is really picking up steam for spring 2016 thanks to celebs and fashion bloggers. Part of the appeal is that the boyfriend cut is just as easy to style as it is comfortable to wear.

These slouchy jeans are a staple for Saturdays and when paired with the right top and shoes, will look polished. From pairing with white Piko tops to printed blouses to structured jackets, boyfriend fit jeans have endless styling potential.

Three Rompers to Rock This Spring

Rompers are a must have for spring and they are quickly becoming my favorite go to outfit for a night out or if I’m just meeting a friend for lunch and shopping.  Their versatility makes them easy to dress up or down, depending on what you are doing or where you are going.

Here are 3 of my favorite styles:

Angie Clothing Paisley Romper

summer-rompers

spring-rompers

fringe-wedges

This is the perfect style to wear out to dinner or to take with you on a tropical getaway.   It looks great styled with a simple necklace and fringe wedge sandals.  I love the fact that this black romper has a romantic flowy fit.  In my opinion, the loose fit makes gives this cute romper a universal figure flattering look.  I think this would make a great Valentine’s Day outfit <3

Elan Clothing Floral Print Romper

elan-clothing-rompers

floral-romper

black-lace-up-flats

If I was going to Coachella, this is the romper I would wear.  Hands down. Festival season is coming and rompers are the perfect outfit to wear while people watching and listening to great music.  The option are limitless with this style, but I like it best paired with black lace up ballet flats and a long necklace.

Ellison Denim Romper

denim-romper

white-converse-womens

This denim romper is definitely the most casual of the three, but still one of my favorites.  It would be perfect to wear while running errands and grabbing a coffee with a friend.  You can definitely dress this romper up, but I love how it looks styled with white Converse and a boho headband for an every day look.

Holiday Outfits |Glik’s Style|

The holidays are upon us and you know what that means!  Christmas parties, dinners out with friends and New Years Eve, of course.  So many reasons to dress up and buy a new outfit.  I personally love a great LBD.  They are easy to style and black is a color that looks great on everyone.

little black dress

Here are some of my favorite holiday outfits:

BB Dakota Elise Ombré Dress.  This dress is perfect for a holiday get together or a night out on the town. Since this dress is basically an accessory in itself , choose simpler accessories like a great pair of stud earrings and a stack of bangle bracelets.  No necklace is needed!

BB Dakota Sabrina Sequin and Lace Dress.  This is a gorgeous LBD that will be sure to turn some heads wherever you go! Throw your hair in a messy bun, put on your favorite black heels, an arm full of bracelets and you are ready for a night out on the town!

holiday outfit accessories

Elan Dress with Lace Inset Sleeves.  This one is my favorite.  The color combined with  feminine lace details is stunning!  It is flowy just enough so it’s figure flattering and comfortable.  You will need to wear a slip with this dress since it is sheer.  Add black tights or leggings, a smokey eye (try the Naked Smokey eye palette by Urban Decay), a nude lip (Studded Kiss Lipstick in Noble by Kat Von D is one of my favorites), a long pendant necklace and a pair of black booties and you will be the envy of every woman at the party!

Jack by BB Dakota Candra Rayon Chali Jumpsuit.  This is a great choice for a woman who is a trendsetter.  It is very sleek and a bit edgy.  It’s the perfect choice for a holiday outfit if you really don’t want to wear a dress to your event.  A strappy heel and gold accessories are a must with this look.  Don’t forget your red lipstick.  Try Audacious by MAC for a great pop of color!

black and gold accessories

We all want to be the best dressed woman at the party so don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone when getting dressed up for the holidays. Just remember if your dress has a lot going on (sequins, crystals, etc), keep your accessories simple.  Play up your makeup instead with a bold lip or a smokey eye.

Happy Holidays!

New Year’s Outfit for Men: Bring in 2016 Right

New Year's Outfit for MenWith Christmas upon us, New Year’s is just around the corner. So, how are you gonna dress your hubby?… Or yourself for that matter. Whether you need an extra gift for yourself or a man in your life, I’ve hand picked a New Year’s Outfit for Men that’s sure to get some compliments when that clock hits midnight.

So for New Year’s, what exactly is the criteria? Well, for most, you want to stand out with class, but not be THE standout. At Glik’s, we have plenty of options for a New Year’s Outfit for Men that fall just inside that perfect medium.

New Year's Outfit for MenEven though the weather has been absurdly warm, I’d be willing to bet the chill will be back for New Year’s. And with that, comes a prime opportunity to rock a new quarter-zip or sweater. For the more outdoorsy male, I’d be sure to grab this Kuhl quarter-zip. It will still leave you with that rugged feel, yet a classy one at that. New Year's Outfit for MenHowever, we do have great options on trendy, yet classy, sweaters. This one here is easily my favorite. Aztec just really gets to me you know???

Next up, let’s talk about some shirts. We have plenty of shirts that surely won’t break the bank, and just about all of them will look great with the above outerwear. You can find them all on one page here.

Next, let’s move down a bit to the pants. Personally, I cannot recommend better pants than these. New Year's Outfit for MenAs the comfiest khakis I’ve ever worn, it’s no wonder why I put them on here. They have some stretch to them that adds an incredible level of comfort, and to top that off, the color is perfect. However, I get that some people may want to rock some denim, and in that case, I’d have to go with these 1897 jeans as my favorites.

Now, to top off the outfit, it’s all about what’sNew Year's Outfit for Men at the bottom of those feet. Shoes are cool, but socks can really add that extra style to an outfit. Here, we have a plethora of stylin’ Stance socks to bring in the New Year with.

New Year's Outfit for MenFinally, as cool as socks can be, shoes really are important. Also, they really can be a great means of showing off your socks. Check out the picture to the right and upper right as an example. For me, Chukkas are without a doubt the best trend in footwear right now. They are classy, functional, and can still look great after getting down and dirty. Here, you can find my personal favorite Chukka we carry. It’s Timberland, so you know the quality is there. However, because the quality comes with a bit of a price, here is a close second that won’t break the bank.

Hope you enjoyed this helpful holiday blog, and have a great New Year!
