Glik’s Women’s Buyers Travel to Las Vegas to Attend WWD MAGIC

Laurel & Shannon take on the Fashion World at WWD MAGIC, Las Vegas!

Gliks women's buyers laurel and shannon

Last week, the Glik’s buying team flew to Las Vegas to attend MAGIC – the largest market week in the world! It was a magnificent trip, to say the least!  What we saw was not only inspirational, but gave us major insight to upcoming fashion trends and vision for what’s next in the ever changing world of fashion. Which we all LOVE!  MAGIC is quite the whirlwind, but it will open the door to new brands, designs, and emerging colors.

3rd & Army for Spring/Summer 2013

At little over a year old, 3rd & Army has already made its mark within the men’s fashion industry.  Launched in 2011, 3rd & Army was able to quickly deliver on-trend men’s apparel to the marketplace.

The 3rd & Army Corporate Headquarters is located in the LA Art District and is compromised of a staff of designers, musicians and artists that share common values. Residing in this progressive community is what allows 3rd & Army to creatively think “outside the box” and continually create innovative menswear apparel.

Glik’s has happily been filling our stores with the latest trends from 3rd & Army for about a year now, and we have no intention to stop. Our online store, gliks.com recently added a few styles from 3rd & Army’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection to our Men’s section.

Here are a few of our favorites:

Fall Fab 4 {for the dudes}

Happy Friday Everyone! Just to let you know, I am a HUGE fan of fashion, fall and going back to school (school is cool kids).  So when I met Jeremy Glik, who by the way has pretty awesome style for a dude, I had to get him to do a guest blog.

So here goes….

Cyan Neff Downtown Backpack:

This rad new backpack is Neff’s new addition to their ever-growing accessory line that just keeps on getting better. The color shows an outgoing style that won’t take away from what you’re wearing, it will just add to it.

Fox Racing Baseline Slim Straight Jean:

I’ve been wearing Fox denim since I was little. Their quality has only gotten better with this new addition to their jean line. And the wash fits today’s style perfectly.

Quiksilver Belmont Shoe in Tan:

Quiksilver’s shoes have come out ahead and on top. Especially with this new shoe that shows the fast fashion in men’s shoes. This tan and classy look is exactly what everybody is wearing.

Neff Warriors Tee:

The new tee line by Neff is a cool redesign from their old tees. They have really gone for a more basic tee look and this tee in particular shows that off perfectly.

L.A. FAST FASHION: JUST IN TIME FOR THE HOLIDAYS!

THIS IS OUR LAST HOLIDAY INJECTION BEFORE 2011!

The Glik’s buying team just left the streets of downtown L.A. for the Midwest with orders of HOT HOT HOT holiday key trends for the remainder of 2010 and going into the new year of 2011. From Lace Shorts to Jacquard Leggings, Glik’s has it covered!!!!

First up are the party dresses. Everyone needs a huge selection of cocktail dresses this time of year, with all the holiday parties and dinners. One of the hottest trends that has been all over, is the one shoulder dress. Worn by celebrities like Kim and Kourtney Kardashian. Just like the girls we have a black and red one-shoulder dress, two colors that are huge during this time of year.

Our black one-shoulder dress has stud detailing around the waist. This rock-and-roll chic look will look fabulous worn with sheer black tights and pumps. Add a splash of color with a bright clutch or earrings.

Our red one shoulder dress has ruffles running down the side. For more of a feminine look, opt for this dress instead. Wear it like Kim does, with all black tights, heels and clutch. All that black will make the color pop! Whether it’s for a party, dinner, or a club this dress is a fabulous way to spice up your wardrobe.

What says fashion forward more than sequins or black sheer mesh? Both! This Sequin tunic has a racerback made of sheer black mesh and body of silver and black sequins. Both sequins and mesh are on every runway; get the designer look for less! Wear this out with jeans or leggings and a simple black blazer. For a trendy mature look for the season, pair the look with some peep-toe platforms and a statement watch.

Similar to the tunic, Glik’s also has a red and black sequin dress also with the mesh back. All you need to complete the look are black tights, a blazer and pumps!

As I have written about before, lace couldn’t be more on trend this season. It’s everywhere! Blake Lively was spotted wearing chic lace shorts. Her shorts were  made by the famous designer brand, Marchesa. The shorts retail for over $1,000! Luckily at Glik’s you can get this fabulous short with a reasonable price tag. Wear it like Blake with a low-cut black sweater, or even a white button down for a classier look.

Another trend that’s been in the works for a while is the crop-top. That’s right ladies and gents, the 80’s look is back and stronger than ever. We have a cropped hooded knit sweater that’s black and gray stripes. Another cropped sweater that we have is purple and black rugby stripes. Worn with a solid color tank top and jeans, this is a great look to rock for a more casual look. Crop-tops also look fabulous with a high-waisted skirt.

Another sweater Glik’s bought in L.A. is called the shark-bite sweater. Its called this because at the bottom of the sweater there is a chunk missing, with the two sides of the top hanging down. This is a great layering piece for winter. You can wear this sweater over dresses, high-waisted skirts, or a jeans/tank top combo.

Leggings are the perfect way to stay warm and fabulous during this upcoming winter. However, the simple black ones can get a little boring after a while. So… look no further! These Jacquard Sweater leggings are basically sweaters for your legs! They will look adorable tucked into UGGS and combat boots. Wear these leggings with a simple color on top. I think army green (break out that parka again!) and black would look best. These will make you stand out among the crowd of jeans and plain black leggings!

Last but not least, what better way to ring in the New Year than with a 2011 tee? This red slub (remember those from the last post??) reads 2011 across it in shiny black sequins. Wear it for New Years Eve or Day! For the Eve look, pair with shiny black leggings and pumps. For the Day wear the slub with black or dark wash denim and some warm boots. Also, if you’re graduating this year (like I am!) you can wear this tee forever. So much more fabulous then a simple class of ’11 tshirt!

Well that’s all! I know it’s a lot of fabulous clothing to take in, but it’s the Holidays! Its time to get dressed up and stay on trend. So whatever style you have, or whatever occasion you’re shopping for, Glik’s has something fresh from L.A. for you. Look online and in stores for these items.
