Dig Baton Rouge

Trendy But Classic Preferred

BY YUWA VOSPER

As the public relations team lead coordinator for Oneofakind Baton Rouge Fashion Week, it’s is no surprise that Glynna Mayer’s style is classic, but fashion-forward. With a tall, modelesque frame, she can wear almost any ensemble and look as though she stepped off of a runway. Glynna shares a few insights about her personal style, and tells us how she dresses for Oneofakind Baton Rouge Fashion Week.

DIG: What is an item in your closet that you cannot live without?

Glynna Mayers: If I had to narrow it down, I would say I couldn’t live without my skinny jeans. I can pair them with a dressy top and heels, or with sandals and a casual top, and still look put together.  

DIG: Which items in your wardrobe do you find yourself wearing most often?

GM: Dresses are my go-to for any event. No matter the style, color, pattern, I can always layer with a blazer or cardigan, or pair it with a great statement necklace and clutch, then head out the door. During the fall/winter, a dress or skirt with tights and boots are almost my everyday look. I have also found myself wearing a Banana Republic denim button-up shirt very often, as well. It is an easy piece that I can layer and pair with other pieces. And it’s denim- who doesn’t love that.

DIG: How would you describe your personal style?

GM: I would say my personal style is trendy-classic. I look for classic clean pieces that won’t go out of style, but I can dress up, dress down and even mix with on trend items. I love to mix patterns and fabrics while pushing the fashion limits. I like to be comfortable and have my look seem effortless, when really it took me forever to put it together.

DIG: Where or Who do you look for style inspiration?
GM: Being in the fashion industry, I feel I look for what’s in style. I do follow local and international blogs and designers to check out what others are wearing, but I really gain my inspiration from those here in Baton Rouge. I am always looking at what others are wearing, and many times when I see an outfit, I think “I’ve never thought of mixing that with that,” or “that’s new, and I’m into it.” Then, my imagination goes crazy, thinking of how I can incorporate the look or idea into my wardrobe and personal style, and make it mine.

DIG: How do you dress for Oneofakind Baton Rouge Fashion Week?

GM: I think Fashion Week gives an opportunity for everyone to try out his or her most fashion forward outfits. Everyone has the same appreciation for the industry and field, and I feel there are no limits. This year, for myself, it is about being−what I considered− streamlined and chic. My apparel will be booties with either black leather skinny bottoms, or black jeggings and neural colored tops with accent pieces.
