Kenneth K. Lam, Baltimore Sun

Arlington resident Heather Hughes spends so much time traveling between her company's Baltimore and D.C. offices, she might want to live in both cities. A new fashion-forward resident would be a welcome addition to Baltimore. When we spotted the 27-year-old asset manager for Sun America in front of the T. Rowe Price building downtown, we loved her choice of camel-colored garments, which stood out among the masses of stodgily dressed office workers on their way to and from lunch. Hughes said she likes to channel the late Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis when putting her outfits together. "I'm also inspired by Diane Von Furstenburg's style," Hughes said. We were immediately drawn to her Club Monacco camel-color cashmere coat. Her silk blazer by Diane Von Furstenburg worked well with her simple black top, which was also by the designer. She tied it all together with an Echo silk scarf. Her black slacks by Banana Republic were extended by her patent-leather Calvin Klein heels. She completed the look with a Cartier watch and David Yurman earrings. "A great smile, confidence and posture is my key to great style," she said. "Also, wear colors that complement your skin tone."
