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.

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.

These trendsetters’ ensembles popped with bold, eye-catching patterns.

Karishma Mehta. Allie Schiffer | Hatchet Photographer

Name: Karishma Mehta
Year: Senior
Major: Psychology
Outfit: Jacket, Free People; scarf, Nordstrom; pants, Urban Outfitters; boots, Steve Madden

Karishma caught our eyes in Academic Center, where she stood out for her ensemble’s creative mix of patterns. By combining the subtle textures of her lace jacket and printed scarf, she added interest and depth to a customary college outfit. Karishma’s style takes inspiration from the seasons and the varying colors they bring. She highlights the mustard, light brown, cream and pale teal tones of autumn. Her use of layering is ideal for the mercurial weather of fall in the District, allowing her to stay comfortable through whatever the day might bring. By combining prints and layering her outfit, while keeping a fall color-palate in mind, Karishma looks exceptionally stylish on campus.

Abby Lieberman. Allie Schiffer | Hatchet Photographer

Name: Abby Lieberman
Year: Freshman
Major: Psychology and Biology
Outfit: Dress, bag, Faces Boutique; socks, CVS; boots, thrift store in Georgia; earrings, made by her sister; ring, Forever 21

On F Street, we found another excellent use of prints in Abby’s retro-inspired outfit. In response to the day’s warm weather, Abby opted for a sleeveless, owl-printed frock. Keeping her look appropriate for fall, she layered knee-high men’s socks under vintage boots that have held up remarkably well since she got them in sixth grade. Pairing tall socks with boots is a hallmark of her everyday style. Though her outfit comprised primarily neutral hues, Abby brought in hints of color with her eye-catching turquoise ring and bold blue earrings. Attracted to older fashions, she describes her style as retro and aims to look glamorous.

Cristina Gonzalez. Allie Schiffer | Hatchet Photographer

Name: Cristina Gonzalez
Year: Sophomore
Major: Business
Outfit: Sweater, Anthropologie; pants, Urban Outfitters; shoes, Zara; bag, Longchamp

We took notice of Cristina’s smart style on G Street. She expertly paired her boldly printed, colorful pants with basics. Her simple navy blue sweater, red bag and tan, studded loafers drew from colors in the print, but never overshadow the vibrant bottoms. In addition to dressing for the weather, Cristina aims to make occasional bold statements in her outfits while keeping the rest of her look simple. By planning her outfit around the focal point pant print, she created an eye-popping ensemble that wasn’t too busy for daytime. Like many GW students, Cristina tries to refrain from wearing sweatpants, instead finding the ideal balance between comfort and looking put together.

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 Audrey Sze.

 

Nour AlRashed. Alexa Jaenicke | Hatchet Photographer

Name: Nour AlRashed
Year: 2013
Major: International business
Hometown: Kuwait
Outfit: Top, Forever 21; vest, JouJou; shades, Ray-Ban; leggings, American Apparel; flats, Urban Outfitters; bangles, Kate Spade

When we spotted Nour’s ensemble outside Starbucks, it was love at first sight. Dressed in all black save for a pop of blue, she exudes understated cool while softening her look with a swath of color. Apart from her play on tones, this fashionista is a master at mixing textures and fabrics, as her nylon leggings and leather vest combo proves. The pairing  adds a hot and edgy aura to the effortless on-the-go look. Finishing her outfit with a classic Michael Kors watch, some girly Kate Spade bangles, and a pair of versatile Ray-Ban sunglasses, Nour crafts the perfect girly-rocker ensemble.

 

Lauren Kohn. Alexa Jaenicke | Hatchet Photographer

Name: Lauren Kohn
Year: 2015
Major: English
Hometown: Los Angeles
Outfit: Shoes, Converse; shorts, belt, Urban Outfitters; bangles, Israel street vendors; top, Forever 21

Just because fall has arrived doesn’t mean the weather is always in accordance. We know that you’re eager to dive into your cozy knit sweaters, but it’s nice to show off some legs while the weather is still surprisingly sunny and warm. Channeling a laid-back vintage vibe, this California-native was turning heads in Kogan, where we found her soaking in some sun on this particularly summery fall afternoon. This fashion-foward sophomore perfectly accessorizes her tie-dye denim cut-offs with a skinny cheetah-print, balancing two busy prints with a basic black top. She also rocks her “favorite dirty converse high-tops” with a pair of fun striped socks, and finishes her look with a mob of bangles, reinforcing Coco Chanel’s mantra that “the more accessories you have, the better you look.”

 

Mandy Leiter. Alexa Jaenicke | Hatchet Photographer

Name: Mandy Leiter
Year: 2015
Major: Undecided
Hometown: Los Angeles
Outfit: Shirt, shoes, Gap; pants, Caitlin Boutique; watch, Tissot

We spotted Mandy as she made her way to class, effortlessly styling some of fall’s biggest trends. We couldn’t help but drool over her floral-print jeans, in a fall-appropriate grey tone, which she perfectly pairs off with neutral brown flats and a basic red top to balance the statement-piece bottoms. Mandy smartly tops off her look with an over-sized menswear watch, adding a touch of femininity with a few bangles and bracelets. Finally, this Los Angeles native solidifies her ensemble with a studded necklace.  The daring print and the bold accessories gives a girly twist to this fall must-have look.

Maren Engh. Carly Lisnow | Hatchet Photographer

Name: Maren Engh
Hometown: Westport, Conn.
Year: 2013
Major: International affairs
Outfit: Cardigan, J. Crew; skirt, shoes, Urban Outfitters; bracelet, Chan Luu; earrings, Anthropologie

We spotted Maren enjoying lunch with a friend outside of Whole Foods. Her outfit is a prime example of color blocking done right, with two colors and two stand-out pieces tied together in tasteful outfit. She balances a vibrant turquoise asymmetrical skirt with a neutral cardigan and pair of flats, placing the emphasis on her fabulous skirt that stands out not only for its colorful hue but also for its feminine shape. Maren is dressed appropriately for the transition into fall weather, proving that cooler temperatures need not force students to sacrifice their summer staples.

Juliet Schear. Carly Lisnow | Hatchet Photographer

Name: Juliet Schear
Hometown: Butler, N. J.
Year: 2016
Major: Political communication
Outfit: Shirt, Forever 21; jacket, Abercrombie; pants, Lululemon; boots, Famous Footwear; earrings, scarf, New York City

Juliet says her personal style is inspired by the concept of mixing simple, versatile pieces. This particular look was “easy” and effortless, centering on a funky scarf that Juliet was excited to break out for autumn. Her simple white shirt is topped with a neutral jacket whose cuffs reveal a floral print, adding a subtle touch of color to an ensemble based mostly on darker shades. Her fierce boots make the look flexible enough to be appropriate for both class or a day out with friends. The casual and comfortable ensemble proves that just a few strong staples can really pull together a great look.

Dyllan Mont. Carly Lisnow | Hatchet Photographer

Name: Dyllan Mont
Hometown: Long Valley, N.J.
Year: 2013
Major: Dance
Outfit: Blouse, thrift shop; top, Urban Outfitters; jacket, Guess; pants, Levi’s; boots, Sam Edelman; sunglasses, Ray-Ban

If you are hoping to layer this fall but fear overdoing it, look no further for inspiration. We caught up with Dyllan at Starbucks while she was waiting for her order in a beautifully layered outfit and embellished booties. Dyllan’s combination of similarly colored tops emits a rocker casual vibe when paired with a jacket from Guess. Her Ray-Ban sunglasses complete the look. Dyllan is effortlessly put together and ready for whatever the day may bring. We especially loved her Sam Edelman booties, which were a refreshing change from the simple black and brown leather boots normally seen on campus.

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.

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.

When the weather gets warmer, coordinating outerwear is replaced by coordinating accessories. Here are a few examples of how students have successfully pulled together outfits.

Annie Aberle. Carly Lisnow | Hatchet Photographer

Name: Annie Aberle
From: Los Angeles, Calif.
Year: 2015
Major: Business
Inspired by: Rachel Zoe
Outfit: Jeans, Rag & Bone; shirt, Black Label Boutique; bag, Coach

Annie Aberle brought her L.A.-style to Kogan Plaza on one of the warmest days of the semester with her floral tank top from Black Label Boutique. The floral print is of course perfect for spring, but what we really loved was how well she coordinated her Coach bag into the outfit. The same deep pink color of the bag is present all throughout the shirt’s print, making the purse a perfect fit for the breezy ensemble.

Tealye Long. Carly Lisnow | Hatchet Photographer

Name: Tealye Long
Hometown: Coopersburg, Penn.
Year: 2015
Major: Undecided
Inspired by: Rhianna
Outfit: Romper, J.Crew; shoes, Target; bag, Ralph Lauren

The romper is a fun, comfortable addition to any casual spring wardrobe. We found Tealye Long wearing a plain black romper from J.Crew. She coordinated leopard print accessories, including her shoes and Ralph Lauren bag, to add some energy to her look. Long threw in a touch of glam with her gold necklace, which was a gift from her grandmother. When coordinating jewelry with leopard print, gold is extremely complimentary of the brown, black and yellow tones.

Morgan Mathiesen. Carly Lisnow | Hatchet Photographer

Name: Morgan Mathiesen
Hometown: New York, N.Y.
Year: 2015
Major: Undecided
Inspired by: Carrie Bradshaw’s style in “Sex and the City”
Outfit: Jeggings, Adriano Goldschmied (AG); flats, J.Crew; ring, Jeanine Payer; bag, Urban Outfitters

Morgan Mathiesen wore grey jeggings with a black belt, black flats and a simple black tee with button details. Her messenger-style bag from Urban Outfitters coordinated perfectly with its black trim, and the cream fabric of the bag brightened up Mathiesen’s look. We loved her studded metallic bangles, which added a touch of edginess without throwing off the feel of the whole ensemble. Morgan also wore a ring from Jeanine Payer, whose jewelry is always engraved with poetry.

This post was written by Hatchet reporter Morgan Viehman.

Imani Bentham. Michael Boosalis | Hatchet Photographer

Name: Imani Bentham
Year: 2013
Major: International Affairs
Hometown: New York, N.Y.
Inspired by: “Whatever I feel for in the closet!”
Outfit: Dress, vintage; boots, Steve Madden; hat, Urban Outfitters

Taking advantage of the warm weather, Imani Bentham steps out in a sleeveless tunic dress with a playful paisley pattern that’s just right for a sunny afternoon. Completing her look with a braided leather belt, brown ankle boots and a black knit hat, Bentham finds a perfect compromise between bundled and breezy. Despite the sunshine, it is still the middle of February, and these neutral accessories maintain an appropriate look for the winter season. But what really makes this outfit stand out is its vintage appeal, as the dress once belonged to her mother.

 

Kasia Kucharski. Michael Boosalis | Hatchet Photographer

Name: Kasia Kucharski
Year: 2015
Major: International Affairs
Hometown: Middletown, Conn.
Inspired by: the 1990s, Sarah Jessica Parker
Outfit: Jacket, dress and boots, Urban Outfitters; necklace, Madewell

Kasia Kucharski’s eclectic ensemble shows how a few bold accessories can make an outfit. Adding a chunky, mixed media necklace and slouchy brown boots to a retro A-line dress and box-pattern jacket gives an otherwise classic look a unique, indie twist. Shear tights keep her warm, and boots could easily be swapped with a pair of flats for a day at the internship.

 

Haley Hakimian. Michael Boosalis | Hatchet Photographer.

Name: Haley Hakimian
Year: 2013
Major: Business, Marketing
Hometown: Jacksonville, Fla.
Inspired by: Kate Moss
Outfit: Jacket, Ralph Lauren; shorts, Diane Von Furstenberg; belt, Hermès; shirt, Gucci; scarf, Saks Fifth Avenue

Haley Hakimian brings designer Florida style to GW by breaking out the shorts and sandals – even in February. Sticking to simple, structured pieces, she layers a soft denim jacket and flowy silk scarf over a black-on-black shirt and shorts combo. The gold detail on her Hermès belt adds a touch of glam while her aviators keep her looking laid-back and ready for spring.

Blair Hakimian. Avra Bossov | Hatchet Photographer

Name: Blair Hakimian
Year: 2012
Major: Fine arts
Hometown: Jacksonville, Fla.
Inspiration: Street styles
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

Name: Christina Viscelli
Year: 2015
Major: Economics
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
Hometown: Cleveland, Ohio
Inspiration: Blogs like The Sartorialist
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.

This post was updated on Feb. 27, 2012 to reflect the following:
The Hatchet incorrectly characterized the ownership of OurStyle Hungary. Dora Henger, not Tom Viscelli manages it.
