Name: Anjali Rajpara
Major: International affairs
Hometown: Orange County, Calif.
Outfit: Coat, pants, Express; shirt, H&M; boots, bought in Brazil; necklace, family heirloom
We found Anjali grabbing some food at J Street on this frigid day in her stylish outfit. Her edgy riding boots, maroon jeans and striped navy and white shirt give her a preppy look, while the dark hues add a winter twist to a look otherwise reserved for warmer temperatures. Anjali’s patriotic palette was fitting after a weekend of inaugural festivities, but subdued enough to not look cheesy. In taking a fashion staple – the ever in-style striped shirt – and pairing it with pants that pop even from a distance, Anjali championed and revamped an accessible look for all.
Name: Taylor Singer
Major: Political science
Hometown: Moorpark, Calif.
Outfit: Top, pants, Urban Outfitters; cardigan, thrift store; shoes, Converse; socks, American Apparel; glasses, Ray Bans
We found Taylor in Ivory with her roommate getting some lunch in this quirky ensemble. Her studded sheer top adds nuanced femininity to the look, contrasting with bold skinny jeans and statement Converse. Treated as boyish all too often, the high-top Converse should find its way into a girl’s wardrobe – and into any daily outfit – more often. Topping her look off with a comfortable, cozy grey sweater and a pair of classic Ray Bans, Taylor brings myriad fashion staples into one cohesive outfit.
Name: Juliana Amin
Major: Political science, minor in dance
Hometown: Cumberland, R.I.
Outfit: Dress, leggings, cardigan, Target; shoes, Doc Martin
Juliana’s outfit is truly commendable on this 19-degree day. Beaming in a vibrant orange dress and bold yellow tights, Juliana takes a summer look and converts it to a wearable winter ensemble. Donning chunky motorcycle boots, Juliana dims down the brightness of her overall look and adds edge to a playfully girly outfit. And while her grey sweater subdues her frock’s flamboyant colors, her garb is testament to the notion that dark weather doesn’t necessitate dark, heavy clothing.
