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.

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!

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!

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!

Sun Tea Summer Fun!

ImageWhat a fantastic way to start off the week! Kaity and I, the social media team, decided to try our hand at homemade sun tea. It was a huge success! I’m going to be making this all weekend long and share it with everyone. I mean seriously….it was delicious, and so easy. Here is what you need:

A mason jar (for single serving) or a pitcher

Your choice of tea (we tried green tea and sun tea)

Lemons

Mint leaves

Water

Image

All you have to do is fill up your mason jar or pitcher with water, add the tea bags. We used two tea bags per mason jar, but you could alter the amount depending on how strong you like it. Next, we sliced up a lemon and dropped the slices right in, added some mint leaves, and done! We let these jars sit out in the sun for about 2 hours.

Image

Meanwhile, Kaity and I made some berry infused ice cubes to put into the finished tea. Quite simple, but genius. Just put some frozen berries in an ice cube tray and fill with water, and freeze!

Image

After about two hours, we went back outside to check on our jars and this is what we found:Image

Success! My mouth was watering just looking at those beautiful colors. We added the berry infused ice cubes to our jars (okay, and a packet of sugar), and enjoyed our creation. It was magnificent.

What I’m wearing: Tie Dye Maxi Skirt, Naked Zebra Tank

 

I believe everyone should enjoy something as sweet and simple as some homemade sun tea every Monday! Try it out yourself!

Man Must-Have {Hybrid Shorts}

Okay guys, it’s safe to say that summer is finally here and every man is in need of a quality pair of boardshorts, NOT a pair of cutoffs made from jeans that won’t survive another winter. Besides, “jorts” (jean shorts) on men are a HUGE fashion DON’T rule that continues to be broken by males everywhere. Whether you’re at the pool, at the lake, in a boat on the river, or you’re blessed to be beachside, boardshorts are a must-have for men!

There is only one downside to the boardshort, and that is eventually you have to go from waterside to the streets or out to eat, etc. This meant that you will have to pack a change of bottoms. Granted, some guys can pull of the boardshorts on the street “look,” but there are still a majority of men who can’t. This is where the hybrid short comes in. Thanks to this ah-mazing new concept, men all-over do not have to change from bathing suit to street wear anymore.

Hybrid shorts are exactly what their name claims: a short that can be worn both in and out of the water. They are made of fast drying material and feature pockets that are secure in the water, yet look normal out of the water. When I first saw the Hybrid Freak from O’Neill, at first glance I would have not categorized them as a boardshort.

Some look exactly like a normal pair of shorts sporting an outward button fly with interior draw cord, hand side pockets, and back flap stow pockets.

Hybrid Freak Back Flap Stow Pockets

Hybrid Freak Side Hand Pockets

Cool Feature: the side hand pockets can be zipped up while you’re in the water and zipped open once you’re ready to hit the town.

Wall Street Front Tie Closure

The Wall Street Hybrid short from O’Neill is similar to that of a normal boardshort “look” featuring a tie closure, side Velcro cargo pocket, and no back pockets.

Wall Street Backside

Wall Street Side Hand Pockets

Another perk of the hybrid shorts is that they are available in patterns and colors that are tyoically reserved for casual shorts verses the loud colors and graphics normally seen in boardshorts. Hybrid shorts are usually available in conservative patterns such as plaids, stripes and all-over solid colors.

Fox Hydroblast Hybrid Walk Short

Overall, I feel that the hybrid boardshort is a summer essential for any guy and a must-have for this 2012 summer season. What’s your opinion on hybrid shorts? Would you wear them? You can visit us online at gliks.com to see these and other available hybrid boardshorts styles.
