Womenswear Wednesdays: Summer street-style sample

This week's weather has been classic Denver: sunny one minute, rainy the next. To honor our changing climate, we thought we'd bring you a variety of street styles: four different looks we saw this week, including the one sported by Olivia Jones (above), a local accountant we spotted at 16th and Court streets.

Profession: Student at University of Colorado at Denver studying marketing.

Spotted at: 17th and Welton streets.

Style inspirations/icons: I like to look at blogs from all over the world; places like London and Korea have good style. The good thing about blogs is that they can have images fro all over the world on one site.

Favorite film: Rachel Getting Married.

2013 jam: "Push and Shove" by No Doubt.

Name: Eva Toma.

Spotted at: 17th and Welton streets.

Name: Melissa Shane.

Spotted at: 17th and Champa streets.

Profession: I'm a paralegal.

Style mantra: Dress appropriate, but also have fun. I try to add some personality to my work clothes because they can be too stiff with black and gray suits. Today I have green shoes.

Shops at: Banana Republic, Express, Nordstrom and for shoes.

Style analysis: While capturing the spontaneity of street style this week, we were reminded that Denver fashion can be as dynamic as Colorado's weather. These women all added personality to their daytime looks with everything from patterned dresses to shawls and scarves to green shoes.

Even on gray days, don't forget about color, Denver.
