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.

Maddie Clements Regina Fong | Hatchet photographer.

This post was written by Hatchet reporter Regina Fong.

Do you know those days when you’re in an all black mood? Your friends may think you’re depressed, but all black can make for a rather fierce look when done right. Since you’re not working with a lot of color, you want to play with your textures. Here, Maddie Clements is wearing a sheer top with a short sleeve cardigan over black jeans. Her military boots have several straps on them, which are edgy, but adding more texture to the look.

Ever wanted to wear black but thought it wouldn’t match your normally colorful style? Torie Hayes offers the perfect solution. You can layer color into your outfit like she has with a purple cardigan or throw on a bright colored scarf.

Hometown: Winterpark, Fla.
