While the summer continues to scorch this town, so do the looks many women are sporting on Denver streets. This week we spotted Jasmine Douglas during the lunchtime rush downtown; she was a standout with her earrings and what she calls "swag." Keep reading to learn where she shops, her favorite accessory and which style icons inspire her fashion.

Profession: Client services dealing with IRA accounts.
Favorite film: There are too many.
2013 jam: Fantasia's new song, "Without Me."
Style inspirations/icons: Nicki Minaj and Toya Wright. My friend, Saidella, has great style, too.

Style mantra: I pick out my shoes first and I then I pick out my shirt. I need shoes that are comfortable that I can get on the light rail with.
A white iPhone and white headphones match Douglas's white capris. Her pink-tipped manicure with her green blouse create a watermelon visual.
These circle earrings even match the circular bun hairstyle Douglas wears.
Style analysis: While many resort to office drab Monday through Friday, Douglas opts for a refreshing twist to summer gear. She dresses light and easy, and her lime green blouse and earrings make the outfit fun and energetic. Her look references icons that have a certain "swag," or swagger. In short, this means they have their own personal style that creates their own aesthetic.
Always rock your own swag, Denver.
