Anjali Rajpara. Sara Wagner | Hatchet Photographer

Name: Anjali Rajpara
Year: Sophomore
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.

 

Taylor Singer. Sara Wagner | Hatchet Photographer

Name: Taylor Singer
Year: Senior
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.

 

Juliana Amin. Sara Wagner | Hatchet Photographer

Name: Juliana Amin
Year: Senior
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.

Whether you are looking to stay warm or simply searching for a finishing touch to your outfit, consider donning a vest this season. These wardrobe staples are fun and functional for both fall and spring.

Taylor Jett. Sara Wagner | Hatchet Photographer

Name: Taylor Jett
Hometown: Windsor, Conn.
Year: Freshman
Major: Undecided
Outfit: Boots, Steve Madden; sweatshirt, American Eagle; pants, H&M; vest, bag, Ralph Lauren

We caught up with Taylor while she was grabbing lunch at West Hall. Her outfit highlights popular pastel colors, previewing the nearing spring. Taylor created a cohesive look that was both fashion forward and comfortable by mixing complementary colors and finishing it off with a vest. Her pink pants stood out in a sea of blue jeans due to their pretty color and feminine style, and paired nicely with her blue sweatshirt and brown boots. Taylor’s oversized bag also looked fantastic. It was her vest, however, that tied everything together. A vest of another color might have been overwhelming in addition to the blue and pink, but a white vest was the perfect complement.

Geetha Cawthon. Sara Wagner | Hatchet Photographer

Name: Geetha Cawthon
Hometown: Arlington, Va.
Year: Freshman
Major: Biomedical engineering
Outfit: Shirt, Banana Republic; jeans, Lucky Brand; rain boots, Sperry; vest, Polo

Geetha was studying in Eckles when her royal purple vest caught our eye. Bright neon colors such as this one are popular for spring, but still have a place in D.C.’s winters. Geetha’s outfit was simple, allowing her vest and rain boots to stand out. Her charcoal grey shirt looked fantastic with the purple hue of her vest, and also tied in to the colors of her rain boots. Her boots add a preppy touch to the outfit, featuring a delightful plaid pattern of light grey and pink. It can be a challenge to build a look around patterned boots, but Geetha did a fantastic job incorporating her boots into this ensemble. While her rain boots were lovely, it was her vest that was the true statement piece. It was flattering and vibrant, pulling together a look that oozed effortlessly cool style.

Emily Xie. Sara Wagner | Hatchet Photographer

Name: Emily Xie
Hometown: Baltimore
Year: Freshman
Major: Political Communication
Outfit: boots, Nordstrom; jeans, Abercrombie; blouse, J. Crew; vest, Michael Kors

We spotted Emily leaving Post Hall, and were impressed by her use of two contrasting colors, black and pink. Her outfit is proof that just a little bit of color can go a long way when put together with the correct pieces. Emily’s pretty pink blouse was not only flattering but also on point for this spring’s trend of pastel and neon. It looked fantastic underneath her black vest, adding a playful splash of color. The vest itself was absolutely gorgeous, the perfect addition to any outfit. Emily maintained her sleek look by adding black leather boots and a handbag of the same hue. Her outfit was simple and stylish, ideal for a day in class or with friends.

As winter approaches, GW trendsetters turn to leggings both to keep warm and complement their best shirts and dresses.

Gaukhar Uskenbayeva. Allie Schiffer | Hatchet Photographer

Name: Gaukhar Uskenbayeva
Hometown: Almaty, Kazakhstan
Year: Graduate student
Major: Accounting
Outfit: Boots, BCBG; leggings, Zara; dress, Juicy Couture; scarf, Loehmann’s; earrings, Kazakhstan; watch, Dolce & Gabbana

We spotted Gaukhar enjoying lunch with friends in J Street and were impressed by her use of the popular wardrobe staple – leggings. Both comfortable and versatile, leggings have become the fashion trend of the year. While most girls on campus have been spotted pairing their leggings with oversized tops and scarves, Gaukhar wore hers with a beautiful charcoal grey dress and black boots. Her vibrant accessories kept her outfit from looking too monochrome on a bleak, rainy day. Her leopard print scarf complemented the darker shades of the dress and leggings, and her pretty earrings added yet another splash of color and texture. Gaukhar’s outfit was simple yet stylish, perfect for a day in D.C.

Alix Bleetstein. Allie Schiffer | Hatchet Photographer

Name: Alix Bleetstein
Hometown: Red Bank, N.J.
Year: Freshman
Major: Undecided
Outfit: Leggings, sweater, Pac Sun; scarf, Urban Outfitters; rain boots, Hunter

Alix’s outfit is proof that basic pieces can easily form a standout look with the aid of a statement piece. Her funky sweater caught our eye almost immediately: Its light purple hue was a shock of color, and the print of two bunnies was simply adorable. Alix kept the combination of bold print and playful color from being overpowering by pairing the oversized sweater with dark leggings and a knit scarf.  Her Hunter rain boots were both functional and fun, tying the look together and keeping her protected from the drizzle. Alix put her own take on the leggings trend by using them to work with her fabulous sweater.

Megan Krishnamurthy. Allie Schiffer | Hatchet Photographer

Name: Megan Krishnamurthy
Hometown: Hightstown, N.J.
Year: Sophomore
Major: Business administration
Outfit: top, American Rag; boots, UrbanOG; leggings, H&M

We found Megan in G-Dub Java, and quickly noticed her stylish take on the classic color combination of white and black.  Though the colors of her shirt, leggings and boots were basic, Megan’s outfit was anything but. We loved the flattering, feminine shape of her top, as well as the tasteful mixture of lace and woven material that keep the outfit interesting. Her black leggings provided contrast but allowed her fabulous shirt to stand out. Megan’s ensemble was both comfortable and pretty, proving that it is possible to stay warm and look great as temperatures drop.

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 Kelsey Renz.

Ryan Wells. Carly Lisnow | Hatchet Photographer

Name: Ryan Wells
Hometown: Las Vegas
Year: 2015
Major: International affairs
Outfit: Shoes, Tretorn; pants, Hurley; shirt, Banana Republic; blazer, Nordstrom

We spotted Ryan placing an order at Whole Foods, where he stood out from the casually dressed crowd in a blazer and cords. Ryan said he was motivated to put together the ensemble to look fresh and presentable for fraternity recruitment. We were most impressed by his use of a navy blazer and pair of shoes to seamlessly incorporate the gorgeous pattern of his shirt into the look. His blazer plays upon the darker blue shades in his shirt, while his tan pants add texture and keep the ensemble from appearing too formal.  Ryan’s look is the perfect combination of ease and elegance, easily adaptable for all occasions.

Olaide Ajomagberin. Carly Lisnow | Hatchet Photographer

Name: Olaide Ajomagberin
Hometown: New York City
Year: 2015
Major: Journalism
Outfit: Shoes, Aldo; pants, H&M; top, Nasty Gal; cardigan, Gap

Olaide’s outfit was a breath of fresh air on an otherwise cold and dreary day. She used bright colors to create an outfit that was both vibrant and stylish. Her funky T-shirt was a perfect match for her teal cords, proving that it is possible to mix colorful pants and a playful top without overwhelming the eyes. She tied the look together with a black sweater, introducing another shade in a subtle way. Her oxford shoes were notable as an unexpected change from the flats and boots normally seen on campus. Olaide’s ensemble was both sophisticated and exciting, and a great example of how to mix a variety of colors, patterns and textures without clashing.

Erin Yee. Carly Lisnow | Hatchet Photographer

Name: Erin Yee
Hometown: Ardsley, N.Y.
Year: 2014
Major: Exercise science
Outfit: Shoes, Libby Edelman; pants, Just USA; sweater, J. Crew; scarf, Gap; earrings, ring, Kate Spade; bracelets, Alex and Ani; watch, Michael Kors

Erin was studying with a friend in Gelman when we noticed her fabulous look. Her pink polka-dot scarf popped against her tan sweater and black pants, bringing a bit of excitement to an outfit built on neutral colors. Her mixture of relatively simple pieces with beautiful accessories reinforces the idea that the accessories you choose to accompany an outfit are just as important as the clothes themselves. On a day when many students were bundled in comfortable sweatpants and heavy coats, Erin shined in an ensemble that was both appropriate for the cooler temperatures and dressy enough for a day in the city.

Year:
2016
Major:
Political Science
Hometown:
Bermuda
Outfit:
Scarf, vintage; top, Urban Outfitters; shades, Ray Ban; bracelets, Chan Luu, Gorjana, flea markets, vintage

As we enjoy the last traces of the summer heat, we were more than delighted to run into Rachael, whose bright outfit and killer accessories almost had us thinking it was still summer break. Carrying a certain beachy vibe, she rocks a basic white T-shirt and jean combo by layering a vintage coral blue scarf, classic aviators and a slew of vibrant bangles. The fun colors, the vintage watch and the beaded details give a youthful, energetic air to this eye-catching look.

Name: Daisy Derooy
Year:
2016
Major:

West Palm Beach, Fla.
Outfit:
Shorts, shoes, Urban Outfitters; top, Nordstrom; bag, Michael Kors

Nothing better exemplifies understated cool like a pair of high-waisted denim cut-offs that dominated the runways of Fashion Week 2012 S/S. Freshman Daisy Derooy was making her round in the salad bar in J Street when we spotted her effortless style. Pairing washed cut-offs with a lacy pale-pink top and brown gladiator sandals, she perfectly pulls off the pale palette, exuding a modern feminine air. To complete her outfit, she wears a baby blue Michael Kors crossbody bag and paints her nails a matching Tiffany-blue color.

Name: Elena Kim
Year:
2013
Major:
International affairs
Hometown:
Los Angeles
Outfit:
Top, vintage; pants, H&M; shoes, unknown

Senior Elena Kim’s sizzling red hot pants alone were nearly enough to give us a heat stroke in Kogan Plaza, where we spotted the stylish trendsetter. Accesorizing those sultry capris with a pair of classic, versatile silver ballerina flats and a chiffon cheetah-print shirt – a vintage piece courtesy of Elena’s grandmother – Elena elegantly reinvents a classic look with a new palette, adding a refreshing pop of color and a daring print.

The spring semester is coming to a close, and it’s been a fashion-filled few months. As we prepare for summer, we can take a cue from these trendsetters:

Zohra Roy. Bryan Hoechner | Hatchet Photographer

Name: Zohra Roy
Hometown: Queens, N.Y.
Year: 2015
Major: Environmental studies and women’s studies
Outfit: Jeans, shoes, H&M; shirt, Forever 21; bag, vintage

We found freshman Zohra Roy enjoying the beautiful weather in a pair of straight-leg jeans. The mint color fit in perfectly with this season’s pastel color palate and the jeans’ high waist made them the focus of the outfit. Roy kept her outfit simple and fresh by wearing a white T-shirt. The chain detailing on her metallic cross-body bag added some New York edge to the springy look. On the band of her jeans, Roy pinned a Campaign GW “Go Green” button to show her support for on-campus Earth Day festivities.

Sam Seker. Bryan Hoechner | Hatchet Photographer

Name: Sam Seker
Hometown: Somerset, N.J.
Year: 2013
Major: Event management
Outfit: Shorts, H&M; bag, Aldo; shoes, Marshalls; necklace, HauteLook

Keeping with the popular fashion trend, junior Sam Seker sported a high-waisted silhouette with a pair of tan shorts. The pleat details and fastened bow made for a dynamic pair of shorts, which Seker complemented with a simple tank top. Her neutral-toned sandals were perfect for the sunny weather. Keeping with the warm, natural colors of the rest of her look, Seker accessorized with a sparkling patterned cross-body bag from Aldo. She topped off her outfit with a gold necklace, adorned with a pendant that read, “Laugh as much as you breathe.”

Stefanie Faro. Bryan Hoechner | Hatchet Photographer

Name: Stefanie Faro
Hometown: Boston
Year: 2015
Major: Undecided
Outfit: Jeans, Blank; shoes, Tory Burch; shirt, Patterson J. Kincaid; sunglasses, Carrera; watch, ToyWatch

Brightening up the corner of F and 20thstreets, freshman Stefanie Faro wears a pair of richly colored cobalt blue jeans. Her T-shirt contained traces of the same tone of blue within the tie-dye pattern along the neckline. To keep from competing with the colors in the rest of look, Faro opted for black Tory Burch sandals and black and white sunglasses. She spiced up her looked with a simple white watch from ToyWatch.

Year: 2015
Major: Art history
From: New York
Inspired by: Mary-Kate Olsen
Outfit: Jacket, sunglasses, H&M; shirt, Brooks Brothers; boots, Vintage Shoe Company; jeans, American Eagle

We found freshman Genevieve Lipinsky de Orlov enjoying the sunny weather in Kogan Plaza wearing a classic denim jacket from H&M, worn over a button down shirt from Brooks Brothers. To prevent a denim overload, she wore a light grey pair of jeans. Though she keeps her tones simple, the color combination makes for a well-balanced outfit. We absolutely loved the boots she bought from Vintage Shoe Company, whose footwear is all hand-sewn. Mary-Kate Olsen is one of her main style inspirations, which explains the fabulously oversized round-rimmed sunglasses.

Alexis Coleman. Avra Bossov | Hatchet Photographer

Name: Alexis Coleman
Year: 2015
Major: International affairs and communications
From: Texas
Inspired by: Various fashion blogs
Outfit: Pants, Forever 21; shoes, Macy’s; jacket, Express; shirt, unknown

Taking denim to the next level, Alexis Coleman donned a pair of trendy floral-printed jeans from Forever 21. Her gold open-toed flats were perfect for the warm weather and for showing off a pedicure. Considering how busy the print on her jeans was, Coleman kept things simple with a grey shirt and an earth-toned leather jacket. Her knit hat offered a final touch of texture to the outfit.

Katherine Wynne. Avra Bossov | Hatchet Photographer

Name: Katherine Wynne
Year: 2014
Major: International affairs
From: Canada
Inspired by: ’50s style
Outfit: Shirt, skirt, bag, vintage; shoes, Paris

Sophomore Katherine Wynne’s outfit is classy, stylish and reminiscent of 1950s fashion. We loved her mint-colored skirt, which boasts a high waist and subtle pleats to add volume. Wynne’s white button-down blouse coordinated with her shoes, which she purchased in Paris. The feminine lace-up flats had cutouts at the front, with small silver studs adorning the shoes’ white leather. Wynne’s outfit is mostly vintage, as she is well practiced in consignment and thrift shopping.

Sandra Loyola. Avra Bossov | Hatchet Photographer

Name: Sandra Loyola
Year: 2015
Major: Political science
Hometown: Oakland, Calif.
Inspired by: Bay Area style
Outfit: Boots, BCBG; sweater, dress, belt, Forever 21

What’s one of the best ways to rock a sundress? Add some rougher details. With this look, freshman Sandra Loyola uses worn brown leather accessories to add a rugged edge to the soft, springtime feel of her dress and sweater. Her BCBG boots are also gilded with faded gold buckle details that give the shoes more texture.

Monique McKenny. Avra Bossov | Hatchet Photographer

Name: Monique McKenny
Year: 2015
Major: Psychology
Hometown: Philadelphia
Inspired by: Beyoncé, Kerry Washington
Outfit: Blazer, H&M; dress, shoes, necklace, unknown

Floral patterns are a staple for spring wardrobes this season, as freshman Monique McKenny demonstrates with her classic floral dress. She styles it up with a grey blazer from H&M, made of a lighter material, making it ideal for a casual yet sophisticated look. Her cozy moccasins reinforce the casual tone of her look, perfect for strolling across campus. She adds a touch of edge to her outfit with a metallic necklace.

Juliana Salazar. Avra Bossov | Hatchet Photographer

Name: Juliana Salazar
Year: 2013
Major: French and business administration
Hometown: Miami
Inspired by: Leandra Medine
Outfit: Jeans, Current/Elliott; shoes, Gucci; sweater, Vince; watch, Michael Kors; shirt, Zara

Junior Juliana Salazar’s casual chic look is achieved through perfect layering. She tops off her neutral shirt with a knit Vince sweater. Her scarf adds an extra layer and her burnt orange straight-leg jeans add a pop of color. Salazar’s Gucci flats are simple and complement the outfit flawlessly, and straight-leg pants or skinny jeans pair particularly well with flats. Her Michael Kors watch and rings from Intermix provide a clean shimmer to the outfit and help keep her look fresh.

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.

It’s still winter, right? That might be the case, but we were lucky enough to enjoy some beautiful and mild weather this past week. Here are a few ways GW’s fashion-conscious took advantage of the blue skies and warmer temperatures.

Katherine Wynne. Michael Boosalis | Hatchet Photographer

Name: Katherine Wynne
Year: 2014
Major: International Affairs
Hometown: Calgary, Alberta, Canada
Inspiration: Vintage, 1950s style
Clothes: Shoes, Ferragamo; shirt, vintage; Jewelry, vintage

We found sophomore Katherine Wynne studying at Starbucks when her shoes caught our eye. Considering how beautiful the weather was, she traded in warm boots for a pair of chic Ferragamo flats that combined a metallic gold buckle with black patent leather. Her black vintage shirt was longer in the back, providing a varying hem length. This and the sheer fabric at the shoulders gave the shirt a relaxed, carefree feel. Wynne dressed up her outfit with some vintage jewelry pieces she received as gifts from her family, including a wonderfully classy string of pearls.

Kristina Morzan. Michael Boosalis | Hatchet Photographer

Name: Kristina Morzan
Year: 2015
Major: International Affairs
Hometown: Queens, N.Y.
Inspiration: Model-off-duty style
Clothes: Shoes, pants, sunglasses, Forever 21; scarf, Canal Street; jacket, Kohl’s; top, H&M

Choosing a leather jacket instead of a heavier option, Kristina Morzan embraced the warm day in casual, model-off-duty fashion. A pair of brightly colored earrings or a colorful scarf can look especially great against the darker tones of a leather jacket. Morzan’s shoes from Forever 21 pop out in the spring-like weather with their off-white floral crochet detail.

Catherine Carney. Michael Boosalis | Hatchet Photographer

Name: Catherine Carney
Year: 2015
Major: Undecided
Hometown: Andover, Mass.
Inspiration: City style, her peers
Clothes: Dress, Forever 21; jacket, Black Rivet; boots, Report

Dresses in January? This week’s unseasonable weather makes that question not so ridiculous. Catherine Carney kept the winter season in mind by choosing a knit sweater dress rather than, for example, a sundress. The thick fabric was detailed with matching buttons, and Carney chose a leather jacket as a lighter outerwear option for the warm weather.

Weather reports say more warm weather may be headed our way. How will you dress for the occasion?
