We’re loving one of Spring 2013’s hottest trends: Tropical! This easy, breezy tropical print will definitely have you in the mood to head to the beach.
This trend definitely has tropical roots. Be on the look out for patterns featuring leaves, animal prints, ikat, tie-dye, feathers, and bold birds. Key tropical colors will be reds, olive, gold, khaki, aqua blues, and bright shades of green. Important fabrics and materials for this trend are leather, chambray, linen, and light cottons.
This trend might be bold, but styling tropical print is pretty easy. Pair your printed top or bottom with simple solid color pieces that have a casual feel. Add some neon pop if you’re feeling bold like a watch, sunglasses, hat, or wristband.
Guys, this trend looks good on you so be bold and try a bit of tropical print to your wardrobe.
We are slowly but surely transitioning over into a new season. Despite all of this crazy Midwest weather that we’ve been experiencing, our heavy, cold climate apparel is being packed away to make room for lighter layers.
At some point as you start packing and unpacking you start to think about what add-ons you need to have in your wardrobe to complete your summer outfits. Personally I usually buy accessories, like a few new bracelets and rings, a super versatile pair of summer heels, flats and sandals, a light scarf, and a good jacket that I can transition easily amongst my outfits.
Once you find your essential add-ons creating a summer look will be easy. Below are a few of my newest add-on additions.
All of the photos from our buying trip to MAGIC have been uploaded and organized, FINALLY. I can’t believe that this time last week I was in Las Vegas hanging out with the buying team and exploring what seemed like hundreds of vendor booths. My trip seemed like a blur even though we extended our stay an extra 2 days (not by choice) due to the crazy Midwest snow apocalypse.
WWDMAGIC is held in collaboration with Women’s Wear Daily and runs for three days. This event features on-trend fashion forecasts, networking events, seminars and all the current styles of the season. WWDMAGIC features more than 2,000 new & established brands that range across every price point and follow up-to-date trends.
We only had enough time to visit 3 shows.
- WWDMAGIC features the most current and wide-ranging collection of women’s brands.
- FNPLATFORM is the shoe show at MAGIC.
- PROJECT MENSWEAR features an extensive collection of men’s fashion brands.
MAGIC holds more shows that feature all aspects of the fashion industry, but we only attended these three, and three days wasn’t nearly enough time to properly explore the shows that we did visit.
Here are a few more photos from the event. To see the full album, visit us on Facebook!
Viva Las Vegas!
Chevron. We suggest you stock up on this trend!
Love this BB Dakota dress!
New brand love! We discovered Naked Zebra while at WWDMAGIC and placed a huge spring/summer order!
Our time in Vegas wasn’t completely filled with just work…
A bit of dancing was had during the Levi’s Party held within the Marquee nightclub.
We visited with Free People on our last day at WWDMAGIC. Loved their booth.
We were able to spent the last portion of the show browsing the booths for new fashions. Find out what we found by visiting us on Facebook!
Spring is king here at Glik’s, and we’re growing a garden of delightful spring styles. Why not celebrate your anxiously patient wait for warmer weather, sweet smelling rain showers, and budding brights of brilliant colors with a new, fresh pair of TOMS shoes?
TOMS classic slip-on shoes are delightfully adorning the shelves at you local Glik’s location, just waiting for you to discover that the gift of giving One for One is just what you need to keep your spirits high until spring actually comes.
Your favorite styles like the cute crochet have returned and are blossoming in brilliant blues hues as well as keeping with the classic natural & black colorways.
We’re excited introduce the edition of the Hemp Classic to TOMS Spring 2013 line. Hemp keeps this classic style casual while the Aztec graphic trim adds an extra pop, keeping this slip-on just above simple.
TOMS took a vegan approach when they created the Oahu Women’s Vegan Classic. This cute classic is made with recycled and sustainable materials, the edition of the tropical floral pattern to this slip-on creates a look that is perfect for any springtime outing. We’re thinking that this adorable floral shoe would compliment any spring dress!
Spring is definitely in the air at Glik’s! Be sure to stop by and checkout our growing style.
We’re already over halfway through January and I think it is safe to say that all of us are starting to long for the sunny, sweet scented days of a Midwest spring. Today’s post is full of spring inspired pastel colors, breezy layers, and the inspiration to beat those lingering winter blues by brightening up our closets!

With the addition of several new locations to our family, (Grand Haven & Holland, Michigan, Moberly, Missouri, and Jacksonville, Illinois) 2012 was a pretty cool year for us.
What began in downtown St. Louis, Missouri in 1897 has grown to 60 stores in nine states. Crazy, huh? Homegrown in the Heartland of the Midwest, Glik’s has remained to its roots… family. Isn’t that where all things worthwhile and important start? Family owned for four generations, we are proud of 115 years of history.
We hold ourselves accountable to providing you quality clothing and on-trend fashion. Glik’s is already looking ahead into 2013 and the future looks bright!
We are on a quest in 2013 for domestically produced fashion! Helping to promote and create more jobs in America is the goal (call it our New Year’s resolution. )
That’s why this week, we’d like to give a shout-out to…
…FLYING MONKEY denim.
Disclaimer: You should all know about this awesome brand. If you have not had the opportunity to slip you limbs into the loving leg holes of this denim brand then we must assist in moving you out from under your (too) cramped rock.
Flying Monkey became a member of the Plastic by GLY (God Loves You) brand family in 2004. Based in Los Angles, CA, Flying Monkey is known for it’s unique, individual, and young-contemporary styles. This denim brand is proudly made locally, that’s right… Made in America (woot, woot).
Flying Monkey takes pride in their denim and has passion for releasing products that are of the highest quality. This premium (American made) denim brand is designed to accentuate the beauty of one’s body and express the stylish identity of it’s wearers individuality.
That being said, we are HUGE fans of all the vibrant colors, the form flattering styles, and the oh-so comfy fit of Flying Monkey denim.
With New Year’s Eve only a few days away, it’s time to narrow down your options and decide what to wear. If your party plans involve a swanky gathering with all of your friends or a night out on the town with no set path, we have just the right outfit for your adventure.
Dress: Jack by BB Dakota (here)
If you’re still burnt out from all that strenuous holiday shopping, then I suggest pulling out that trusty LBD you keep nestled in you closet and dressing it up for whatever occasion you have ahead of you. Recharge your classic dress by pairing it with glittery accessories like a glitzy statement necklace or chandelier earrings, adding shimmery heels and maybe even an accented clutch.
Jeans: Miss Me (here)
Top: Jack by BB Dakota (here)
If you’re more “at home” in a comfy pair of jeans then I would suggest denim with a little glitz to it. Go-to brands like Miss Me and LA Idol Jeans are known for their “blinged out” back pocket designs and are worthy of any NYE bash. Just pair these designer inspired denim jeans with a cute fashion top, statement heels, and accessories for a complete look. Once you have your outfit complete all you’ll need is hair & makeup.

Now all you need is a kiss 3…2…1…Happy New Year!!!
