Fun With Fashion

In Oklahoma, most occasions--except perhaps the opera, black-tie dinners and a few other occasions--formal wear is neither required nor expected of the ladies.

Jeans are the foundation of many outfits, from casual to elegant. For the dressed-down look, graphic T-shirts (some sporting logos of favorite sports teams) pair naturally with blue jeans. Dressing up the look is easy, too: just switch out the T-shirt for a leopard print top or a feminine blouse in your favorite style, and you're ready for the dance floor, date night or party. 

Want something a little less casual? Set the jeans aside and select a fun and flirty dress. 

When Amanda Clark opened The Clothing Store in Norman  in 2016, her goal was to create the perfect shopping experience for busy moms who want to look trendy, without breaking the bank. Nearly four years later, she thinks she and her staff have been able to capture their target audience of busy mothers, as well as extend their reach to serve a wide range of customers, who shop both in-person and online.

We believe the outfits showcased here nicely illustrate this philosophy of dress.

Want to amp up your look for a special occasion, or just for fun? Again, that's easy to achieve through the careful selection of accessories, such as a pair of high heels or funky sneakers, depending on the desired look. For our photo shoot, Lewis Jewelers loaned us some incredible earrings, rings and necklaces, which definitely added a "wow" factor.
