Shelby Siegel. Carly Lisnow | Hatchet Photographer

Name: Shelby Siegel
Hometown: New Orleans
Year: Second-year graduate student
Major: School counseling
Outfit: Jacket, Banana Republic; top, Zara; pants, Lucky; shoes, Cole Haan; bag, Dooney & Bourke

We found Shelby in the entrance of Gelman Library. Relishing in the new season, she captures the rich shades of autumn with her stylish looks. She brightens the neutral tones of her jacket, bag and shoes with her mustard-yellow pants and striped top, creating an enlivening color contrast. Splashes of gold on her bag’s hardware and the buttons of her jacket tie together the colorful pants and the rest of the outfit. Anticipating a class presentation later in the day, the fashionable grad student aimed to look cute and comfortable. This outfit accomplishes that and more, making her appear polished and confident.

 

Madeline Clements. Carly Lisnow | Hatchet Photographer

Name: Madeline Clements
Hometown: Paris
Year: 2015
Major: Undecided
Outfit: Sweater, Ella Moss; pants, Rag & Bone; boots, Prada

We spotted Madeline’s clean, monochromatic outfit as she crossed 23rd Street. The shades of gray that comprise her look become progressively darker from her shoulders to her boots, drawing attention up to her face. Her color-blocked top features an engagement geometric pattern and her shiny boots are a sophisticated take on the ubiquitous lace-up boot trend. On a day when many students donned neutral shades befitting the weather, Madeline stood out in the crowd. Her style brings Paris to Washington, translating to a comfortable, chic outfit for a gray day.

Summer Guo. Carly Lisnow | Hatchet Photographer

Name: Summer Guo
Hometown:
China
Year:
First-year graduate student
Major:
Hospitality management
Outfit:
Jacket, Forever 21; jeans, Levi’s; shoes, Aldo; bag, Nordstrom

Summer’s cheerful look lightened up a gloomy day on H Street outside Gelman Library. Her personal style tends to favor mood-enhancing bright colors, exemplified by her yellow double-breasted jacket. Summer revives the trend of rolled-up, casual jeans, which reveal adorable bow-trimmed flats. The two colors of the flats correspond to those of the bag, lending cohesion to the outfit. No matter what the weather brings, Summer will be spreading sunshine all over campus with her simple yet jaunty ensemble.

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.

Rachael Petty. Michael Boosalis | Hatchet Photographer

This post was written by Hatchet reporter Audrey Sze.

Name: Rachael Petty
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.

 

Daisy Derooy. Michael Boosalis | Hatchet Photographer

Name: Daisy Derooy
Year:
2016
Major:
Biomedical engineering
Hometown:
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.

 

 

 

Elena Kim. Michael Boosalis | Hatchet Photographer

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.

Fon Tipanun Bisalbutr. Michael Boosalis | Hatchet Photographer

Name: Fon Tipanun Bisalbutr
Class: 2015
Hometown: Bangkok
Major: International Affairs
Outfit: shirt, street vendor in Thailand; jeans, Guess; bag, Zara; shoes, Aldo

Fon was spotted outside Gelman Library looking chic and pulled together in a dark brown top and blush pink jeans. She seemed ready to herald autumn in with her muted color palette and healed Oxford-style shoes. Her chiffon top added just a touch of romance. Her instinctual brand mixing seems to reflect an array of influences; she wears pieces from Thai street vendors and mainstream American stores and pulls it off brilliantly.

 

Mazen Kassem. Michael Boosalis | Hatchet Photographer

Name: Mazen Kassem
Class: 2015
Hometown: Jos, Nigeria
Major: Systems Engineering
Outfit: jeans, T-shirt, Zara; shoes, Pull and Bear

Mazen hit the town Friday evening in a pair of charcoal grey skinny jeans, a graphic T-shirt and classic, yet versatile black shoes. The pop of bright color against his white T-shirt makes a vibrant, playful statement to counter the subdued tones of the rest of his outfit. The balance between dark and bright in his ensemble keeps Mazem looking both sophisticated and fun, and the overall look is still youthful and fresh.

 

 

Alli Schlossberg. Michael Boosalis | Hatchet Photographer

Name: Alli Schlossberg
Class: 2015
Hometown: Baltimore
Major: International Affairs
Outfit: dress, Nordstrom; shoes, Steve Madden

We found Alli taking advantage of the lingering summer weather in a colorful floral mullet dress. She paired the trendy strapless number with simple metallic sandals to create a flirty look that can easily transition from daytime to evening and nighttime.  Alli insists she isn’t particularly stylish, but this outfit proves she definitely knows how to pull together a summer outfit that is all at once effortless, comfortable and fashion-forward.

Molly Bock. Carly Lisnow | Hatchet Photographer

This post was written by Hatchet reporter Julie Alderman.

Name: Molly Bock
Hometown: Phoenix, Ariz.
Year: 2016
Major: Business
Outfit: vest, Urban Outfitters; shirt, Nordstrom; shorts, Forever 21; sunglasses, Ray Ban; shoes, Birkenstock; bracelet, Spain

Bringing a modern twist to a fashion throwback, Molly balances the delicate and intricate nature of her vest with the harsher simplicity of her top and shoes. The incoming freshman complements the top half of her look with a pair of jean shorts – a must-have for any trendsetter. The Phoenix native says she likes to bring an international flare to her outfits with her super exotic jewelry. Pairing rounded aviator sunglasses with Birkenstocks, Molly makes a ’60s-esque style look modern and up-to-date, and pulls together individual garments to create a seamless outfit.

Name: Alexandria Taliaferro

Alexandria Taliaferro. Carly Lisnow | Hatchet Photographer

 

Hometown: Bronx, N.Y.
Year: 2016
Major: Theater, philosophy
Outfit: shoes, thrift store; skirt, Walmart; top, Forever 21; bag, vintage

For many, the graphic tee might be enough to make any outfit, but not for our next fashionista Alexandria. Sprucing up a classic graphic tee with a high-waisted skirt brings a classy touch to what may otherwise be a simpler outfit. The men’s style shoe is a perfect way to add some contrast to the feminine look. The combination of the blue skirt – a versatile and flirty fashion staple – and Alexandria’s slicked back hair make her look chic and ready to hit the books. Alexandria says she draws her influence from star Zoe Saldana, but maybe Zoe should be calling Alexandria for some tips.

Name: Cara Fortuna
Hometown: Atlanta, Ga.
Year: 2016
Major: Theater

Cara Fortuna. Carly Lisnow | Hatchet Photographer

Outfits: shorts, American Apparel; shoes, DSW; top, Hard Rock Hotel; bag, Lucky

Cara’s outfit is the perfect fusion of trendy and casual. Cara claims that her number one objective is comfort when putting together an outfit, but the freshman proves that even the coziest outfit can be achieved without sacrificing style. Her white tennis shoes are perfect for pounding the pavement, and paired with classic high-wasited jean shorts, they create a retro vibe to the overall laid back style. The combination of the graphic tee and the shorts show how it’s easy to spice up any vacation shirt. The practical bag brings an extra air of style to the edgy but easy look.

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.

Outfit: Shoes, Via Spiga; jeans, Genetic Denim; dress, BCBG; Sweater, Nordstrom; scarf, Stella McCartney; sunglasses, Yves Saint Laurent

Balmy days and chilly evenings have become the norm for February in D.C. With such unpredictable weather, senior Blair Hakimian opts for layers. From head to toe, Hakimian epitomizes the chic, layered look. Paired with black jeans, her lace-trimmed dress adds the perfect dose of femininity to her predominantly black ensemble. She finishes off her outfit with a cozy wrap sweater, gray scarf and classic black Oxfords. And of course, what outfit would be complete without a great pair of oversized sunglasses?

Christina Viscelli. Vanessa Karimi | Hatchet Photographer

Hometown: Branchburg, N.J.
Inspiration: The blog, OurStyle Hungary
Outfit: Sweater, J. Crew; boots, Clarks; jeans, T.J. Maxx; belt and buckle, Germany; scarf, Afghanistan; bag, Steve Madden; sunglasses, Urban Outfitters

Looking comfortable yet stylish on her way to class, freshman Christina Viscelli pairs her favorite one-of-a-kind pieces with sensible basics. Viscelli wears a hand-me-down jacket from her sister with a warm sweater. She also sports a versatile pair of T.J. Maxx jeans, an economical option for any college student. She adds a belt, found in a German flea market, and a pair of desert boots. To complete her outfit, Christina wears a scarf from Afghanistan, given to her by her brother, and an oversized bag and sunglasses.

Lee Seitz. Avra Bossov | Hatchet Photographer

Name: Lee Seitz
Year: 2015
Major: Political science

Outfit: Shirt, Nordstrom; vest, Brooks Brothers; pants, Banana Republic; belt, Italy; socks, Old Navy; shoes, Cole Haan; cufflinks, Dior; blazer, vintage; bow tie, Brooks Brothers; bag, Jansport; sunglasses, Ray-Ban

It wasn’t difficult to spot this stylish stud with his two-tone Ray-Bans and colorful bow tie. Freshman Lee Seitz pairs his favorite Brooks Brothers bow tie with a navy blazer, tweed vest and blue dress shirt complete with cuff links. The wool and cashmere blazer, a hand-me-down from his father, is a perfect match with the classic pair of chino pants. He finishes off his ensemble with blue argyle socks, Cole Haan dress shoes and a belt found in Italy. His trusty cross body bag­ – a practical alternative to a bulky backpack – only adds to the stylish look.

Year: 2015
Major: Psychology
Hometown: Medford, N.J.
Inspiration: Dianna Agron
Outfit: Shirt, Urban Outfitters; scarf, Anthropologie; jacket, Tilly’s; jeans, American Eagle; boots, Steve Madden

On lazy fall days, the key is to put in minimal effort yet still manage to look put together. Jeans and a classic tee are always great choices. But if you’re looking for a little extra flair, take Alex Kasputis’ example and throw on a casual leather jacket and a bright colored scarf. Feeling comfortable is important, but it’s always better when you look just as great as you feel.

Won Sup Lee. Ana Cvetkovic | Hatchet Photographer.

Name: Won Sup Lee
Year: 2015
Major: Business
Hometown: Seoul, South Korea
Inspiration: Jake Gyllenhaal
Outfit: Sweater, Ralph Lauren; scarf, Rag & Bone; pants, Nordstrom; shoes, Converse; bag, Series

Woke up late and have 20 minutes to get to class? No problem. When you’re too short on time to throw together a spectacular outfit, open your closet, grab your favorite neutrals, throw them together and you’re ready to go. The most important thing here is fit, and Won Sup Lee’s navy sweater and fitted khakis are the perfect pairing for this late fall afternoon.

Emily Bernstein. Ana Cvetkovic | Hatchet Photographer.

Name: Emily Bernstein
Year: 2015
Major: Political Science
Hometown: Miami, Fla.
Inspiration: Gwyneth Paltrow
Outfit: Shirt, Gap; sweater, J.Crew; jacket, Bloomingdales; scarf, Burberry; jeans, J Brand; boots, Steve Madden; bag, Prada

If you’re one looking to do some last-minute Georgetown shopping before Thanksgiving, then take a note from Emily Bernstein and go for layers. Mid-November can get chilly, and if you’re trekking around, you’ll want to bundle up. Emily pairs her oversized sweater with a warm jacket, a cozy scarf and most importantly – boots. You’ll want to stay warm, and a good pair of boots are the perfect way to do it in style.

Inspiration: Oscar Wilde
Outfit: Shirt, Urban Outiftters; jacket, Urban Outfitters; pants, Urban Outfitters; shoes, Sperry; sunglasses, Ray-Ban; watch, Movado

With his effortless, sophisticated style, it’s no wonder Kevin Callahan originally hails from the hip streets of Brooklyn. Stripes are always a fall staple, especially when paired with navy, and Callahan certainly pulls off the look well. Classic, breezy and timeless, his outfit is perfect for those days when you want to look good without looking like you’re trying too hard. Keeping it simple is a must, and he does an excellent job balancing that simplicity with style.

Name: Alex Topalsky
Year: First year graduate student
Major: Museum Studies
Hometown: Cleveland, Ohio

It’s a good reminder that you don’t need to spend a ton of money on designer duds to achieve that high fashion look.

Year: Sophomore
Hometown: Palo Alto, Calif.
Wearing: Dress, Calvin Klein; wallet, Michael Kors; Flip flops, Rainbows; earrings, Nordstrom
Influence: Urban Outfitters

Samantha Levison is seen wearing a bright red dress that frames her silhouette. The color of the dress is simple but eye-catching and makes the look casual chic. She pairs her outfit with a Michael Kors wallet that matches the color of her sandals. The dress itself is very versatile. It can be worn casually, but paired with the right accessories and shoes, it’s great for a fancy night out.

Whitney Drazovich. Jordan Emont | Assistant Photo Editor

Year: Sophomore
Major: Communications
Hometown: Palo Alto, Calif.
Wearing: Sunglasses, Free People; necklace, House of Harlow; shirt, Gap; jeans, Gap; Bag, Marc by Marc Jacobs; sandals, Nordstrom

Whitney Drazovich keeps her outfit simple by tucking a light-colored tee into a dark-wash skinny jean. This creates contrast, but also allows her to accessorize. The plain look of her shirt is a good way to showcase her stunning necklace, which adds vibrant color. Her bag, though simple in shape, is embroidered with metallic thread. This addition to her ensemble is perfect for these sunny days.

Here, Emma Todorovich keeps her look simple by choosing a tee with thick red stripes, which gives her some added color without going overboard.
