Profile on Style: Casual Afternoons

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 Talia Weisner.

Alex Kasputis. Ana Cvetkovic | Hatchet Photographer.

Name: Alex Kasputis
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.
