Sara Utz stood out by wearing one of the years hottest color combinations: black and gold. The 25-year-old Hampden resident wore a ModCloth black dress from Etsy. She upped the fashion quotient with the addition of an Ecote belt from Urban Outfitters. The golden bird embellishment really stood out on top of the black. She extended the silhouette of the ensemble with a pair of black tights and a simple black wedge from Target. Utz said she turns to Target for a majority of her pieces. My sense of style is Target-nautical-punk-rock-chic, said the graphic designer at Drexler, which also shares an office with The Hatcher Group. We also loved her bangs, which were reminiscent of Jessica Biel, Michelle Obama and Kerry Washington. The key to great style is being true to yourself. Being inspired by those you admire, she said. For example, I love stripes, thanks to my Grandmas style.
