Profile on Style

Profile on Style is a weekly post that explores the motivations behind GW’s fashion trends. We’ll show you the most interesting aspects of GW style, and then try to make some sense of it all. Keep your eyes open for a reporter and photographer walking around because you might become the latest trendsetter.

This post was written by Hatchet reporter Samantha Hatton.

People from all over came to GW for the Clinton Global Initiative University events held this past weekend. But amidst the visitors, GW students showed us how they keep it fashionable on campus. Check out this week’s style profiles:

Jon Potvin. Michael Boosalis | Hatchet Photographer

Name: Jon Potvin
From: New Hampshire
Year: 2013
Major: Psychology
Outfit: Shirt, H&M; cardigan, Urban Outfitters; jeans, Cheap Monday; glasses, H&M; shoes, Marc Anthony collection at Kohl’s

Jon Potvin wore a white button down under a gray cardigan that complimented his dark gray Cheap Monday jeans. By pairing a collared shirt with a long sweater, Potvin achieved a look that was put-together but still casual. The neutral grey and white tones he wore gave his look a light, refreshing feel, and his grey suede shoes added an interesting texture to the outfit.

Name: Ramina Mamedova
From: New York
Year: 2015
Major:Undecided

Ramina Mamedova. Michael Boosalis | Hatchet Photographer

Outfit: Jacket, Theory; jeans, Free People; shoes, Jeffrey Campbell; headband, Burberry; shirt, Armani Exchange

Also rocking the versatile button down, freshman Ramina Mamedova topped off her look with a Theory jacket that boasts leather sleeves – a unique touch. Her grey jeans kept it simple, avoiding competition with her rather trendy flats. Mamedova’s studded loafer-style Jeffrey Campbell shoes added a definite edge that is on par with the leather details of her jacket.

Name: Sophia Noel
From: Texas
Year: 2013
Major:Marketing

Sophia Noel. Michael Boosalis | Hatchet Photographer

Outfit: Shirt, Joie; shoes, Steve Madden; sweater, Nordstrom; bag, Michael Kors

We ran into Sophia Noel on her way to class and loved her silk blouse from Joie. The shiny material of the silk looked great with the equally dazzling pearls of her necklace. Her look was professional, but she kept things casual for class in a pair of jeans and nude Steve Madden flats. Noel’s bag choice was a black cross-body bag by Michael Kors.
