Best Dressed

When we set out to do a story on the region’s best-dressed residents, we realized that Sacramento style is a bit, well, schizophrenic, running the gamut from thrift-store chic to haute couture. What it most definitely is not is boring. This may be a government town, but Sacramento also is a city of great originality and individuality. Using reader nominations and the consensus picks of our staff, we photographed 16 men and women who we think represent the best of Sacramento style. Each of our sartorial standouts gave us exclusive access to their closets for their photo-shoot looks, which we then supplemented with apparel and accessories from their favorite stores. Behold: Sacramento’s Best Dressed.
