Kimonos: The Epitome of the Layering Piece

1

Who doesn’t love a good kimono (or three)? They are an AMAZING transitional piece that can take you through all of the seasons, they are cozy, AND they are super fun and flattering. So, we will go ahead and start by saying that you definitely need to invest in a few kimonos to switch up your looks all year round.

For starters, kimonos are so versatile since they come in infinite combinations of colors, lengths, short sleeve, long sleeve, patterns, and fabrics. This is our absolute favorite part about kimonos and is what makes them so great for year-round style.  They have the ability to make you feel fashionable, feminine, and cool, while still letting your personal style shine. The kimono is a staple piece in your wardrobe that can be easily incorporated into your personal, day-to-day style.

You can wear kimonos during the summer months by choosing a lightweight, floral kimono and pairing it with a basic tank or tee, ripped jean shorts, and your favorite summer sandals.  Or, throw a patterned kimono over your swim suit when you are headed to the pool for a cool, yet fabulous, look.  For the cooler months, rock a duster kimono that is toned with autumn colors, a tank or lightweight sweater, ripped (or clean!) skinny jeans, and your go-to heeled booties! This look is so great since you can also switch up the look by substituting your kimono for a cardigan! A timeless look for every season is throwing a kimono over your favorite sun dress! If it’s chilly, wear a pair of tights or leggings underneath to stay warm. Going for a night out look? Opt in for a silk or velvet kimono with a more tailored look, dark wash denim, and your best dancing heels!

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!

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.
