Trending: Athleisure Style

header2

Athleisure, activewear, what-have-you.  All we know is that the trend is in AND it is comfortable.  It’s a win-win situation that will have you adding to your collection on the reg.  However, if you are unsure of how to pull off this style, we are here to show you where to start!  Keep reading to check out some of our activewear styles from Mono B Clothing.

The greatest thing about active wear clothing is that you can go from brunch, to class, to running errands, and to the gym all in one outfit! Or if you’re like us, trick people into thinking you are headed to the gym when in fact you are headed home from class to watch 8 hours of Netflix…  You are totally capable of looking put together in leggings and a pullover without looking like a bum.

First things first: leggings. You can NEVER have too many pairs.  Anyone who tells you otherwise, well, they’re just plain wrong. We have recently gotten in so many cute and trendy pairs of leggings and you definitely need one of each pair! These leggings are made with a comfortable stretch fabric that is perfect for lounging or cardio. With different designs, lengths, and colors, you will easily be able to mix and match with your wardrobe day to day.

If you want to be SUPER trendy and put-together, buy an active-wear set! These sports bra crop tops are perfect for the warmer months coming up.  They come in cute matching prints as some of the leggings we carry and feature a comfortable, padded construction. Not comfortable with wearing only the crop top and leggings? Throw on a basic tee or tank over the sports bra and you’re all set.  For chilly or windy days, invest in a neutral windbreaker or athleisure pullover.  With muted tones and a simple design, your look will go from bleak to chic in no time.

Last, but certainly not least, you will need to invest in a neutral, comfy, and dependable pair of tennis shoes to complete your look! These shoes will be able to take you through the day in style from your morning coffee runs to your gym workouts at night.  Also, try Boho Bandeaus or Teleties to pull your hair back in a messy bun when you decided to hit snooze for the fifth time before class that day.

header

Now that it is officially April, Spring is in full throttle with Summer right around the corner (fingers crossed!). This being said, we wanted to talk about our favorite trends of the season! These are some of our top picks from Glik’s and we think you need to add them all to your closet (if you haven’t already).

Dresses, and rompers, and jumpsuits.. Oh my!

So many new arrivals have been hitting in stores and online and it is SO hard to narrow them down.  However, basics, stripes, and floral prints seem to be the name of the game. Three of our new favorite dresses are the Amuse Society Clothing Bohemian Rhapsody Maxi Dress, the Love Stitch Clothing Denim Stripe Dress, and the Wild Honey Palm Print Dress! These scream summer and are super fun pieces for your next adventure!

Rompers and jumpsuits have also been our go-to this Spring. They are super comfy and versatile, so they are easy to just slip on and go! You can dress them down with sandals or sneakers ,or dress them up with a pair of your favorite heels or wedges! Some of our new favorites are the Anama Clothing Twist Front Jumper, the Elan Strappy Surplice Jumper, and the Everly Clothing Peplum Windowpane Romper! With the simple designs and solid colors, these pieces are great to add your own twist with unique accessories!

jumpers

Slide into the season…

You can never have too many pairs of shoes; they are just a continuous way of life. This season, we are focusing on mules and flatflorm slides! They are classy, cute, versatile, and elevate your favorite looks! Qupid Shoes have multiple mules and slides to choose from, and we love everything they throw our way! With simple designs and neutral coloring, they offer flats and heels so you are destined to find the pair that suits you.  Some of our favorites include the Mia Shoes Saige Banded Platform Sandals, the Qupid Shoes Jaden Ruched Mules, the Report Shoes Ryder Heeled Mules, the Soda Shoes Coxy Cross Slides, and the NYLA Shoes Thing 1 Flatform Sandals.  (See, we told you shoes are hard to narrow down!)

Add On Accessories!

Accessories have also become a huge focus in trending fashion.  Pieces that are neutral and versatile seem to be what all the talk is about! Bralettes are still a completely necessary and trending piece for your year round wardrobe. We know we always talk about them, but that’s just how important we think they are! Another new item we recently received are Teleties! These hair ties are so fashionable and can be worn as bracelets when they are not being used for a pain- and kink-free ponytail.  And since you will need a stylish bag to hall of your daily necessities around in, a straw bag is just what you need for the season! We received this straw handbag from Caroline Hill and immediately got heart eyes! (Hint Hint: Your closet needs this bag too.)

We hope you enjoy our favorite trends from the season just us much as we do! Stay tuned for new arrivals each week 🙂 Or, shop these trends now at gliks.com!

Our Favorite Trends of the Season

How to Wear Over the Knee Boots

Over the knee boots are the must have shoe for this season!

From the runway to your news feed, thigh high boots are having a major style moment. These chic boots are not solely reserved for model-types; anyone can pull this look off.

 See how we’re styling these glam shoes for fall:

over the knee boots outfits

If you’re feeling uneasy about styling your over the knee boots, keep it simple! Pair flat black OTK boots with a cozy off shoulder sweater, one of our Wishlist lace bralettes, and basic skinny jeans. Add a hint of color to your lips to polish everything off. This look is a no-brainer but still looks like it came straight from Pinterest.

taupe thigh high boots

Flat thigh high boots also look great when worn with a cozy fringe poncho! Try this Love Stitch poncho, which is available in multiple color options. The neutral taupe coloring of this pair will allow for endless styling options, no matter the season!

over the knee heeled boots

Over the knee heeled boots are another chic option to try! Make a statement and wear a trendy lace up dress, floppy hat, and sparkly Kendra Scott earrings with your heeled boots. As the weather gets cooler, layer a trench coat over your dress for a sophisticated and stylish outfit.

Moto Leggings: Trend to Try

These bottoms fit like leggings, but give the illusion of real pants. Yes, please.

Both comfortable and on-trend, moto leggings pass the leggings-as-pants test because of one thing: the details. There are ribbed panels above each knee and zippers at the ankles, giving these pants an edgy but still very wearable look.

Moto pants will elevate any outfit, no matter how casual. Keep scrolling to see how we’re wearing moto-inspired leggings this season.

Moto Pants + Z Supply

We paired our olive green moto pants with a faux suede Z Supply tee and black ankle bootswomens moto pantsHitting right about the ankle, these pants are the perfect length to wear with short boots.

Moto Leggings + Freeloader

This is the outfit you’ll never want to take off (and I don’t blame you). This Freeloader clothing cardigan is made with a tiger brush fabric that is cozier than cozy. We had to throw another Z Supply tee underneath because they are just that comfy.

It is wonderfully crowded with booths full of great fashion and stylish people.

Shoe Trends:

2. It’s all in the details.

Cut out details are trending now for fall and this trend shows no sign of slowing down come spring.

3. Say goodbye to the middle man.

While a classic pair of riding boots is still a style staple, ankle boots and over-the-knee boots are the next big thing in footwear. Be on the lookout for over-the-knee boots coming soon to Glik’s!

Introducing POL Clothing

WHo is POL?

POL is one of the hottest brands currently and is selling out in all Glik’s stores. Conceptualized in Los Angeles, CA., POL clothing started with humble beginnings from 2009 as a wholesale manufacturer and has blossomed since. POL is versatile, comfortable, and most importantly stylish. Regardless of age or style, POL capitalizes on everything that is trendy. POL has numerous styles ranging from tanks to dresses and cardigans. They are made out of soft fabrics and are dyed with a unique wash. Some of the most popular colors include: black, olive green, red brick, and ivory. Some designs include lace, added pockets and embroidery. POL is great for day to night outfits or just a casual outing. Here is a little outfit inspiration and reasons why we love POL! 🙂

 

POL Tanks

POL baby-doll tanks are one of their most well-known styles. They are cute, comfy, and are perfect for any woman. With unique colors, styles, and trims; baby-doll tanks are a hit! POL baby-doll tanks pair well with jeans, shorts, and leggings. Also add a long fringe necklace for an added feminine touch.

 POL Three QUARTERED sleeve

These shirts are perfect for comfy fall nights. They pair well with blanket scarfs and skinny jeans for a stylish fall look. They have small detailed trim for a feminine touch and have a Bohemian feel to them with their bell sleeves. Our favorite way to pair them is with leather black shorts or joggers.

POL Dresses

POL dresses are cute and comfy! They have the same baby-doll shape as the tanks, yet are slightly more feminine. They come in swing dress designs, as well as long maxi dress designs. They also have the same lace trim detail and unique stone wash look to them. Our favorite way to wear them is with a bright colored bralette and gladiator sandals! A great way to get this look would be pairing the MIA Tall Devi Gladiators with the POL dresses.

POL Tunics

POL womens tunics are perfect for the festival goer! They are embroidered with colorful stitching and have an added tassel for an overall boho look. They pair well with shorts or jeans. For a fun way to dress up women’s tunics, add a felt sun hat and gladiator sandals, or for your more classic women’s, tunic look add some colorful denim like these styles from Flying Monkey!

POL Cardigans

Finally, one of POL’s most feminine styles is their short sleeve backless cardigan. the cardigan is just a soft and comfortable as the rest of their pieces, but has a sweet backless detail. This little detail brings a big punch when it comes to style. It can turn any daytime outfit into the perfect going out outfit, and make any casual outfit a little bit sweeter! We recommend pairing them with racerback lace bralettes from Wishlist and denim for a cool street-style look.

Choker Necklaces: Trending Now

The choker necklace is back and having a major moment; further proving that everything eventually comes back in style (hello crop tops and Birkenstocks). This trend is flooding the red carpets, featured on the covers of your favorite magazines, and impossible to miss while scrolling through the Gram. Celebrities and fashion icons alike are rocking this trend and so can you!

Adding a choker to your look will both draw attention to your neckline and frame your face. Plus, the “cool girl” vibe you’ll get from rocking this trendy accessory is a nice bonus.

YES, YOU CAN PULL OFF CHOKER NECKLACES.

Choker necklaces can work for every style from boho chic to minimalist to 90’s grunge. Don’t be afraid to pair a choker (or two or three..) with an off the shoulder shirt or a low neckline.

ways to wear a choker

These short necklaces are perfect for layering, but can make just as much of a style statement flying solo. Mix and match your long chain necklaces with a single strand choker or ditch the extras and let a simple choker shine on its own!

Create a look that’s uniquely you with a cute choker necklace!

Graphic Tees: Make a Statement

graphic tees for women


If you’ve recently walked through a mall or scrolled through your Instagram feed, you’ve probably seen a graphic tee (or two… or three). This trend is popping up everywhere and for good reason.

Not only are graphic t-shirts comfy and totally on-trend, but they work on body types of all shapes and sizes. A cool statement tee can be worn dressed up with a skirt or dressed casually with a pair of boyfriend jeans.

graphic tees

It doesn’t matter if you only plan on wearing it on your off days or if you want to incorporate your graphics into your work wardrobe, the purpose of a graphic t-shirt is to reflect your personality, mood, or beliefs. Make sure when choosing a statement tee, you find one that not only speaks to you, but that you also want to speak for you. After all, your t-shirt will send a message… literally.

So, whether you’re all about, “drinking wine and taking naps” or just want to say, “y’all need Jesus”, Glik’s has a fun assortment of women’s graphic tees that are anything but boring.

Spring 2016 Color Trend: Olive Green

While dark green is not the usual suspect for a spring/summer color palette, the hue is taking over the world of fashion in a big way. Gone are the days when neutral colors strictly included blacks, whites, and tans. Say hello to your new go-to color: green.

Whether it’s a military green or a shade of olive, this is a trend you’ll want to try. Here are a few of my favorite ways to wear fashion’s army green trend:

olive green pants

Olive green pants are a must thing spring! Balance out wearing colored bottoms by pairing them with a neutral top. Try a black cold shoulder shirt layered over a lace bralette for the perfect #ootd this spring.

OLIVE_GREEN_DRESS

An army green dress will be a staple in your spring/summer rotation. A piece like this can be worn dressed down with Converse shoes and a jean jacket, or you can dress it up by pairing it with a statement necklace and cute sandals.

You can also rock two trends at once with an olive green shirt and white skinny jeans! A look like this can easily take you from a long day in class to a night out with friends in no time!

Spring 2016 Color Trend: Olive Green

We’ve seen it in the ’90s and then again in 2011 and now its back! This color block trend for 2016 is much different from what we have seen in the past.
