BEHIND THE SCENES: TED DREWES PHOTO SHOOT

Glik's Fashion Photo ShootWe’re back at it again, and this time with a winter fashion photo shoot! We had lots of fun visiting Ted Drewes Frozen Custard and Christmas Tree Shop in order to create some seasonal snapshots. This entire shoot is brought to you by friends, fashion, and freezing temps. So come along with us for a behind-the-scenes look at how our whole day went!

 

Women's Winter FashionWe were absolutely dying to have a photo shoot that involved Christmas trees. What better place to go than Ted Drewes? Our models, Rachel and Randi, were the perfect pair for helping us show off our new women’s winter fashion.

 

Winter DressesWe made sure to get lots of photos by the pines in order to help our social media posts and our website to look festive for the season. The trees were so beautiful and we were so excited to have the perfect Christmas tree background for our fashion shots!

 

Winter Dresses for WomenBy these smiling faces, you would never know that the temperature that day was freezing cold. This is a glimpse of our models’ glamorously brisk walk back to their changing station in order to get ready for their next look.

 

Vests for WomenOne of our hottest styles for Christmas 2018 was this Park City Vest from Thread and Supply! Our girls were showing off the versatility of this fully reversible vest and they were loving the added layers for modeling on this chilly day.

 

Sherpa Pullovers for WomenYou know we couldn’t forget to take a sherpa picture! We loved how the colors of Rachel’s pullover and Randi’s jacket were perfectly complimented by the gorgeous green trees in the background.

 

Thread and Supply for WomenEven though we absolutely adored all the trees, we wanted to explore our surroundings in order to switch up the background a bit. This tan, brick wall was perfect for showcasing these beautiful styles from Thread & Supply!

 

Thread and Supply for WomenWe loved the comfy combination of C.C. Beanies and Thread & Supply styles! Randi was cuddled up in the ultra-soft Drayton Pullover, and Rachel was warm and cozy in her grey Dillon style.

 

Sweaters for WomenAfter venturing even further out from our original spot, we stumbled upon a cute place called, “Candy Cane Lane.” We absolutely had to capture some pictures by these adorable candy canes and we couldn’t be happier with the results!

 

Main Strip Sweaters for WomenIn order to be fully prepared for this festive shoot, we brought some fun Christmas-y props along with us. We think that these cute lights add that extra little something to Randi’s Main Strip sweater look, don’t you?

 

Elan SweaterNot only were these Lumiere pants absolutely perfect with Rachel’s Elan sweater, but we were loving the look of the festive garland wrapped around her shoulders too!

 

Accessories for WomenSince this part of town was rather quiet that day, we took a few photos out on the street for a high fashion look. For this photo, the girls were trying to show all the different ways you could wear a Look By M scarf. In the end, we all decided that this scarf looked the most comfortable when they were both cuddled up in it together.

 

Winter Dresses for WomenAt the end of our shoot, we decided that we needed a few more pictures of these gorgeous dresses. Then we spotted this beautiful set of Christmas red doors, and we knew we had found our final background destination! Thank goodness the weather warmed up so our models weren’t freezing for this final look.

 

Fashion and FriendsEven though our photo shoot was over, we couldn’t head back to the office before grabbing some custard to-go! Thank you for following us along on our latest behind-the-scenes story, and we hope to share our next adventure with you all as well!

Cozy Cardigans Make the World Go ‘Round

Cozy Cardigans Make the World Go ‘Round


This topic comes around year after year, but we just cannot get enough of it! Cozy cardigans literally make the world go ‘round. They are the perfect item of clothing to throw on and go when you’re in a rush, but also a great piece to dress up for a night out while still remaining warm and comfortable! We have already been receiving new styles and returning favorites of cardigans at www.gliks.com, and we cannot wait to see what we will continue to receive throughout fall and winter!

Cardigans are basically a fashionable blanket, so you really can’t go wrong with them.  When transitioning from summer to fall, we recommend throwing on a cardigan over your favorite summer dresses! It is such a versatile look, you can mix and match with all of your cardis and dresses.  Also, when the temperature really starts to drop, cardigans are a great layering piece. Throw a cozy cardigan over your favorite graphic tee and flannel button up, a pair of ripped denim jeans, and ankle booties and you are set for whatever comes your way!

Now, we know you’re probably thinking, “tell me something I don’t already know.”  Well, what you don’t know is just how hard it’ll be to decide on just ONE cardigan to wear for the crisp, cool air that comes with the changing of seasons. With different lengths, fabrics, and colors, you’ll want to wear a cardigan just about every day.  Which means, you’ll have to keep hitting up your local (or online!) Glik’s to snag one of the latest styles we get in. Check out our favorite cardigans below and see how we love to style them daily on Glik’s Official Instagram! Happy shopping 🙂

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!

Cozy Cardis For the Win

Snuggle up this winter with a cardigan that will be sure to keep you warm. This Love Stitch Cardigan will be your new favorite cardigan. It is has long sleeves, a hood, and is extremely soft! You’ll love this cardigan so much that you will want one in every color! This layering piece is so simple that it’ll become your go-to piece this winter.

My favorite thing about over-sized cardigans is that they are super versatile! (In particular this long sleeve hooded cardigan in brick from Love Stitch Clothing.) Cozy cardigans are very easy to style and look great on all body types! They can be dressed up or down, which makes them great for a night out with friends or to quickly grab while on the run doing errands or going to class!

For a casual look, pair this hooded cardigan with a graphic tee or tank, a pair of leggings, and your favorite Converse or fashion sneakers.  I also love to add a CC Beanie to my look, especially during the winter months! To dress it up, wear the cardigan over a fashion tee, distressed denim, a chunky knit scarf (like this Free People Fringe Scarf) and over the knee boots. Whatever you decide, you’ll be sure to stay in style with this cozy hooded cardigan from Love Stitch Clothing!

How to Style Boot Socks Two Ways

Boot Socks + Ankle Boots

Typically, when I think of boot socks, I imagine pairing them with classic riding boots. However, I’ve seen a ton of fashion bloggers and Instagram stars wearing a pair scrunched down with ankle boots. So unexpected and so cute! The key to achieving this look is to find a pair of socks that aren’t too thick and can be pushed down a few inches above your boots.

Boot Socks + Riding Boots

For a classic look, boot cuffs also look great with riding boots! The important thing to remember when styling your socks or boot cuffs with taller boots is to choose a pair that is long enough to peek above the top of the boot. This looks best with skinny jeans or leggings!

Thankfully, these adorable accessories are starting to hit gliks.com! If you’re looking for a little something extra to pair with your dresses, skinny jeans, and Piko sweaters this season, we’ve got you covered.

Once you grab a pair (or two), I’d love to hear how you style your boot socks! Are you stepping outside the box and wearing them with ankle boots? Or are you staying perfectly classy and pairing your boot socks with riding boots?

It’s Back | The Essential Plaid Scarf

The Blanket Scarf

For the past few seasons, the plaid blanket scarf has been the must-have accessory for fashion lovers everywhere. Not only does it serve a functional purpose and keep you warm on those chilly fall days, but it also offers endless styling opportunities making it a versatile piece well worth the investment.

Plaid Blanket Scarf

 

You already learned how to wear the blanket scarf here, but in order to keep this trendy piece relevant in your wardrobe; you also need to know what to wear your plaid scarf with.

Outfit Inspiration

This outfit should be a staple in your fall wardrobe rotation for so many reasons. Not only is it practical for every day wear, but it is also requires minimal effort. Each piece offers versatility, so you won’t be limited in your styling options. I’ve chosen a pair of Flying Monkey jeans, a basic long sleeve thermal from Able, a killer navy blue Fate vest, and our plaid blanket scarf (of course). This outfit works because it is understated and will leave you looking put together. Also, the navy blue vest has a mixed texture that contrasts nicely against the colors in the plaid scarf.

The Infinity Scarf

Equally as wonderful as the blanket scarf is the infinity plaid scarf. Let’s be honest, most of us spend an overabundance of time trying to turn our blanket scarves into infinity scarves anyway, so this new style is a Godsend.

Plaid Infinity Scarf

Outfit Inspiration

To style this plaid scarf, I’ve selected a military inspired jacket from Amuse Society, a neutral colored striped shirt from Ginger G, and the same pair of Flying Monkeys from the first photo (see, they are a versatile pant!). Mixing patterns like the stripes in this shirt and the plaid scarf is a huge trend right now. Don’t be afraid to take a risk and be a little more fashion forward when styling your plaid scarf.

Plaid Infinity Scarf Gotta have it? Both of these must-have scarves will be available (at a special price, yay!) on gliks.com starting Monday, July 13th.
