Fashion Forward

Just the two of us - Sets you need this spring 🌷

We're absolutely twitterpated with the adorable sets we've been receiving lately! Whether it be loungewear, or a summer-y match of tank top and shorts or pants, we are loving the breezy waists and effortless silhouettes these sets are serving. Here are a few of our favorites that we think you need this season:

How to Style a Corset

With the rise of 19th century-based pop culture such as Bridgeton and Little Women, the corset has officially made it's debut as a top fashion trend. Used even before the Middle Ages, corsets have been utilized as a shapewear solution to thin the waistline for centuries. These garments have a notorious reputation of lacing up a woman and leaving her out of breath. Today, to the relief of all of us girls, they are used as a statement piece in an outfit opposed to a constricting underclothing.

The Battle of the Generations: Skinny Jeans vs Mom Jeans

Are you a side part and skinny jeans kind of girl or a middle part and mom jeans kind of girl??

The year-old debate has been a force in the fashion world with new styles of denim popping up. Skinny jeans are a classic piece in every woman’s closet but we also can’t resist the mom jeans revival. So, have you been asking yourself, “Which style of denim is best for me?” and “Am I still ‘allowed’ to wear my beloved skinnies?”

2021 Fashion Trends

We're so excited for 2021!! It's the first time that we have seen two colors of the year from Pantone, and we think they're stellar. The inspiring combination of Ultimate Gray and Illuminating Yellow are making us feel positive and hopeful for the newness that this year will bring. We've try to predict the biggest fashion trends for our customers ever year, and 2021 will be no exception. Here are a few trends that we think you'll see a lot of in the next couple of months: 

Holiday Happenings: Store Fronts & Employee Fashion

Although many events were cancelled this year due to CDC guidelines and restrictions, we still found ways to spread cheer. One of the biggest traditions is decorating the Glik's storefronts. Many of our stores go all out to for the holidays, so we are sharing our favorites.

What Winter Activity You Should Do Based on Your Zodiac Sign

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!!! Trying to figure out what to do during the winter time can be a fun yet challenging decision. Especially in the year 2020, we want to still make the most out of this cheerful season, and celebrate the year behind us and ahead of us. We’ve made it easy for you and gave some suggestions of fun winter activities (COVID-19 friendly) based on your zodiac sign, or birth date. A trendy and sometimes skeptic topic, zodiac signs give an insight into who you are and what you may like to do. Accurate or not, you can try all of these activities with the other fire, water, earth, or air signs in your life!

Glik's Giftables

Shipping this entire year has been so crazy that it's hard to know if Santa will be able to get all of the presents under everyone's trees in time!! If you're still crossing off items on your holiday shopping lists, here are some of the items that we've been wishing for, and that your giftees will be wanting too:

Get Ready to Save: Thanksgiving Deals

Thanksgiving, all the preparation and excitement for Christmas makes it easy to glaze over, but it's time we recognize it as one of the best times of the year. A holiday full of tasty, homemade food and time spent with family- there's even a parade unique to this exceptional holiday. And right when you think it's done, here comes the biggest shopping days of the year! Shopping the yearly holiday sales has become a part of so many of our family traditions. A time to get up early together, celebrate the victories of finding the perfect gifts at the perfect price, and, of course, the copious amounts of coffee we consume together to push on to the next sale. 

The Shacket (AKA Our New Favorite Trend)

Whatever you call it, shacket…shirt jacket…overshirt, we are here to tell you about one of the best growing trends of the season! Perfect for transitioning through fall and winter, this hot item is a must have in your closets. So, what exactly is a shacket, you might ask? A shacket is the perfect blend of a shirt and jacket. It incorporates a shirt style and midweight to heavyweight design of a jacket. This article of clothing could include a flannel/plaid print, denim, or corduroy constructions which we are seeing as the most popular. They might also feature a Sherpa or wool body that provide the warmth of a parka minus the bulkiness. What we love about shackets are the versatility and ease they bring to your every day wardrobe. Keeping you warm and stylish, you can dress them up or down with so many looks. And, women and men, alike, can get in on this trend, making it your go-to for 2020-2021 fashion!
