Brand Spotlight: SIlver Jeans Co.

Experimenting with denim styles is SO in right now, and we are here for it.  However, it can be overwhelming when trying to decide which fit and wash work best for you.  Today, we want to give a little insider about one of our favorite brands at Gliks; Silver Jeans Co.  Although Silver Jeans Co. was established in 1991, they are an extension of a former company called Western Glove Works, which was founded by the Silver family in 1921. With almost a century under their belt, you could say that the Silver’s know a thing or two about denim jeans.

The reason we love Silver Jeans so much is because of their overall high quality and their variety of fit they offer in their jeans.  (Guys, they offer men’s styles too! You can shop them here.) Since they create specific kinds of fit you will be sure to love, they even have named their denim jeans to fall into each category. By naming their styles, it makes shopping for jeans THAT much easier since you can shop for new styles with the same fit you already know and love. For example, some of the core styles we carry for women at Glik’s are: Suki, Avery, Elyse, Aiko, and Boyfriend.

SUKI : Curvy Fit | Mid Rise

suki

Silver Jeans Co.’s go-to curvy fit, consciously designed to play up all your best assets with unique shape-enhancing details for the perfect hourglass silhouette.

AVERY : Curvy Fit | High Rise

avery

Silver Jeans Co.’s perfect curvy-fit jean, designed with a slightly higher rise for extra coverage and the best shape enhancement.

ELYSE : Curvy Relaxed Fit | Mid Rise

elyse

Silver Jeans Co.’s more relaxed version of their signature curvy fit, engineered with an eased waistband for fuller waistlines that prevents gapping and a muffin top.

AIKO : Straight Fit | Mid Rise

aiko straight

Silver Jeans Co.’s classic straight fit you know and love with an oh-so-comfortable mid rise that contours to your natural shape.

BOYFRIEND : Relaxed Fit | Mid Rise

bf

Silver Jeans Co.’s laid-back fit that is perfect for weekends, designed as a more comfortable, relaxed alternative to your favorite skinny jeans.

Now, if you’ve never tried on a pair of Silver Jeans before we highly recommend you do! It is not uncommon for customers to have two or three different sizes of Silver Jeans in their closet depending on the style, so don’t be afraid to experiment with looser and tighter fitting styles! Here is a Silver Jeans Co. size chart for reference or a starting point on which size you may need, but it can’t possibly replace actually trying them on 😉

Valentine’s Day Outfit Ideas

What to Wear for Valentine’s Day: Outfit Ideas

Valentine’s day, you either love it or hate it (for whatever reason). This day is meant to be spent full of love and laughter with family and friends. Chocolate covered strawberries, funny yet meaningful Valentine’s cards, conversation hearts, roses, and everything splattered with red and pink hues are the general thoughts that come to mind when you think of Valentine’s Day! But, have you given much thought as to what new clothes you are going to buy for this day?! Whether you have a big romantic date planned or some non-negotiable plans with Netflix, takeout, and your couch, do not forget to find the perfect outfit! The best part – these looks are perfect for Spring-time so you don’t have to worry about investing in an outfit that you’ll only wear once a year in February.

Pretty Polka Dots

2

Jumpsuits are up trending in 2019 because they are SO versatile. We just got in this sweet polka dot midi jumpsuit from Everly Clothing and it just gives us good feelings.  The black and white coloring allows you to wear this from the office to date night. Since the weather is still on the cold side, we threw on a chunky chenille sweater from Miracle over the top! Layering jumpsuits is a great way to transition your wardrobe from winter to spring.  To dress this look up, we paired it with a basic black heel – but sneakers or sandals would look just as cute!

Sweet Styles

1

This look is the epitome of Spring fashion! We love everything about this outfit since you can wear all of the pieces individually and mix & match the clothes you already have stocked in your closet.  It is finally time to break out the white denim, so go ahead and invest in a quality pair from KanCan Jeans.  A simple lightweight sweater with darling shoulder details, like this number from Elan Clothing, kicks this look up a notch! If you get cold, simply throw on a classic jean jacket and you’re all set. Add some sparkle to this #ootd by accessorizing with a long necklace, statement earrings, or even a wide-brimmed hat!

Romantic Ruffles

3

If you’re ready to wear dresses all the time (in an attempt to avoid actually wearing pants) say I? IIIIIIIIII 😉 This romantic wrap dress has a great silhouette with an adjustable tie waist and appropriate v-neckline.  The soft colors included in the striped design give just enough pop while not becoming overbearing.  These photos do not do this Lush Clothing dress justice! If you are worried about being too chilly, throw on a cardigan or denim jacket over the top or opt for over the knee boots instead of heels or wedges!

Classic Combo

4

This last look can definitely be modified to suit your individual style, but we can’t get enough of a good basic look.  This simple outfit still screams elegance and style due to the shoulder detail and choker neckline look, without the bold “Valentine’s Day” colors. Miracle Clothing has amazing sweaters for year-round style and we can’t get enough. We paired the trendy sweater with a pair of distressed denim jeans from KanCan and the same neutral block heels from earlier.  Style tip: front tuck your sweater to accentuate and slim your waistline while showing off your trendy belt buckle!

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!

We just can’t get enough of kimonos, honestly! They are the epitome of a layering piece. Let us know what your favorite ways to wear your kimonos are! Shop these trends at www.gliks.com or check out how we like to style our looks on Glik’s Official Instagram!

Get Your Stripes On

header

Horizontal or vertical, thick or thin, we do not discriminate stripes at any time throughout the year. So, if you’re like any of us, you consider stripes to be a pretty core part of your year-round wardrobe.  This being said, go ahead and get your stripes on!

Stripes are super flattering, trendy, and mostly considered a basic! We are seeing stripes in so many sizes and colorways in 2018, and we are all about it. We are here to tell you that if you wear your stripes strategically, you won’t be disappointed.  Vertical stripes, such as pinstripes, create a slimming and lengthening affect.  Vertically striped pants and dresses lengthen your legs and torso and make your façade more visually appealing. If you are trying to make your shoulders or hips look bigger and fuller, opt for horizontal stripes!  These patterns will help you create a more proportionate look as well. From tops, pants, dresses, and even shoes, stripes are making their appearance known in today’s fashion world. So, why not add to your collection obsession?

The best thing about stripes is that you can find something that fits for any occasion.  They are a great print for all ages, too! For a casual vibe, pair a striped tank or cropped top with your favorite pair of boyfriend jeans or mini skirt.  Or, if you’ve got a date night or party planned, whip out a chic striped jumpsuit or dress and everyone won’t be able to stop talking about your look!

Keeping all of this in mind, you really can’t go wrong with striped clothing! Now, go ahead and get your stripes (and shopping) on! Shop now at www.gliks.com 🙂

Tips and Tricks for Mixing Prints

header

One of the best, and most exciting, things about fashion is that there are endless possibilities.  There are so many variations to mix and match the clothes you already have in your wardrobe; it is impossible to get bored! A good rule of thumb to live by is to wear what makes you feel confident and comfortable, while not being afraid to step out of your comfort zone.  That is where today’s topic comes in: mixing prints.

Now, you may be thinking, “there is no way I could ever pull that off!” Or, “I never know where to start or if the patterns actually match WITHOUT matching.” Mixing prints can be so simple and subtle, or big and bold, whatever your preference. We are here to give you a few tips and tricks on how to mix different patterns and prints, for year round style!

1. Match colors, Not prints

match colors

One of the simplest places to start is by having a black and white color scheme.  Try mixing a polka dot top with some striped pants, while making sure the colors match!  This is a great start for someone who is unsure of whether or not they can pull off mixing prints. However, we encourage you to be a little more daring and try a certain colorful color scheme instead.

2. Break up the look with solids

break up with solids

This is a personal favorite tip! Start by layering up your tops by wearing a solid color base or a chambray button up or a chic blazer! Then you can incorporate different patterns on your pants or under shirt. This tricks your mind into adapting to the fact you are mixing prints, yet breaking it up with a matching solid color!

3. Mix prints with different size scales

size scale

Having variations of size scales with your look helps add structure. This look can be achieved by wearing a blouse or sun dress with tiny floral print and pairing it with a denim jacket that features a bold striped design or pants that feature a large checkered print. Just make sure that the colors are coordinated!

4. Textured fabrics count as a print

textured

This tip is super easy to incorporate into your wardrobe without giving it much thought.  Some examples of textured fabrics include: silk, leather, lace, tweed, or even textured sweaters with inverted patterns.  Slip on a leather skirt and pair it with a striped top with a plaid button up tied around your waist! Voila!

5. Stripes are considered neutrals

stripes1

stripes2

This is a huge tip to remember! Vertical stripes are always your friend, yet horizontal stripes are definitely a close acquaintance as well. If you are hesitant about mixing prints, start with a striped top, dress, pants, skirt, what-have-you. Then, pair with a fun, colorful print such as paisley, floral, boho, or diamonds. You can’t go wrong with mixing and matching patterns with a staple like stripes!

6. Match the same print in different colors

gingham

This is a fun way to invent your own version of two-piece sets! Match a black and white gingham tank with red and white gingham shorts, and you are all set for a summer day. Or, pair a colorful square print top with fun printed pants for spring, or throw on a fair isle cardigan with matching colors for a fall day.

7. Use accessories to mix prints

accessories

Bold accessories are super trendy right now, so don’t shy away from them! Mix and match prints by accessorizing with a plaid scarf, gingham heels, chunky statement earrings, a bamboo beach hat, or a palm print or leopard print clutch.

We hope these tips and tricks have helped feed your imagination for the combinations you choose! There are simply endless possibilities for fashion, so just remember to step out of your comfort zone once in a while and rock mixing and matching prints! Start your shopping now at gliks.com!

How to Wear Piko Tops 3 Different Ways

Do You Piko?


If you have never heard of or worn a Piko, then you have been missing out.  Piko tops and dresses are the most versatile piece of clothing you will ever own.  These tops and dresses are made with bamboo fabric and are oversized, yet flattering. Piko tops and dresses also come in many different colors and styles.

piko_tops_dresses

As an added bonus, Piko clothing is super easy to launder. If you’re anything like me, that factor can make or break your love for a garment. All you have to do is machine wash them in cold water with like colors and tumble dry on low. Easy peasy, right?

The fit of a Piko can be intimidating to some, but fear not because we’ve got your back, girl. Read on to see our three favorite ways to wear Pikos.

Piko + Bralette:

WHITE_PIKO_SHIRTBralettes are great to add to a top that has a open back.  Try adding a lace racerback bralette to a double v-neck Piko top. This will give your Piko an edgier vibe.

Piko + A Front Tuck:

White_Piko_Shirts

Another great way to style a Piko top is to front tuck them.  Since Piko tops are slightly oversized, they front tuck very easily.  Just tuck in the front part of your Piko into your jeans and let the back hang out.  If your jeans have a higher rise, you can also tuck a bit of your Piko into one of the  front pocket of your jeans.  Both tucks make these loose fitting tops look a little more trendy and a little less basic.

Piko + A Knot:

If you want to take your Piko top from boxy to a more tailored look, knot it in the front at your hip. A knotted Piko looks great paired with destructed denim and a cute pair of sandals.

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.
