Keeping up with fashion trends can be a tricky task to master; however, with the right teacher and attitude, anyone can become a trendsetter. That is why we asked local fashion influencer, Amanda Baker, for some seasonal advice.
What are your top three fall wardrobe staples?
My effortless, easy Agolde jeans; an ankle bootie because of their versatile nature of being worn for any work occasion; and layering pieces – such as a camel coat or leather jacket – that pairs well with a wide range of outfits. This year, I’m focusing on more foundational staples and adding an assortment to my fall accessories and completer pieces. Starting with a great base of wardrobe essentials while changing your shoes, jacket and accessories can make any outfit feel new.
Favorite trend this season?
Moody and rich tones. Deep chocolates, olives, burgundy and camels in faux leather, boots and knits. Faux leather is a trend I’m seeing being carried throughout the year and I’m loving it! Leather shorts, biker shorts, leggings and leather bodysuits are a few of my favorite base layers year-round.
Who are some of your favorite local boutiques/stores to shop and why?
When shopping for me, I head to Balliets. Whether I’m looking for a statement outfit or a great pair of designer shoes, they have the best selection of high-quality, elevated basics. For the girls, shop at Swaddle and Keedo Kids. They both carry Rylee and Cru – which is one of my favorite brands. Keedo Kids also has a great shoe selection. As far as home, my go-to is Wood Garden. Janice and Aime have been family friends for years and have the best chic and comfortable pieces for your home.
What is a 405 establishment/business you can’t live without?
I love treating myself to The Glow Facial from @renewoklahoma! The staff and quality of service is the best. For date night, you can catch Ryan and I on the patio with a glass of wine at the Ranch. I love the intimate feel of this restaurant. For a girls night, I love Jones Assembly, Osteria, and we recently stayed at the Bradford House. It’s amazing!
