College senior Hasbrouck Miller describes his fashion as “more interesting than what you would find in a J. Crew catalog…but I still play it pretty safe.” Don’t be fooled, though. He may “play it safe,” but his look is always stylish. With his signature tan suede bucks and a camelhair blazer as his must-have piece for fall and winter, Hasbrouck definitely has a solid knowledge of style. For the rest of us, we all experience lazy days where we throw on sweats and trudge to class sans chic accessories save for perhaps the Starbucks latte we’re clutching. Not so for Hasbrouck, who on lazy days will “just casually throw on [a] kurta, a blazer, a pair of jeans and some brogues.” His wardrobe comes from a variety of places he has travelled to and includes a number of vintage items and designers like Marc Jacobs and DKNY. When asked whether maintaining his look is difficult, Hasbrouck says, “Not at all. It takes me longer to eat breakfast.” And for all the aspiring trend-setters out there, his advice is: “You don’t have to spend a lot…but invest in a good haircut and some good shoes; both should reflect your personality. Everything else in-between should W fall into place.”

uptown chic If you see College senior Alaina Urbahns around campus, she’ll likely be wearing her signature diamond stud earrings, diamond pendant necklace, and black Chanel watch. All family heirlooms or vintage items, these pieces perfectly sum up Alaina’s “feminine and classic with a twist” style. Her favorite designer is Karl Lagerfeld, who she believes does “an incredible job of translating classic Chanel house ‘codes’ such as the camellia flower into a modern and wearable piece for today’s woman.” And if she could raid anyone’s closet, it would be Marion Cotillard for her classic French girl look and the amazing pieces she wears in her Dior ad campaigns. For Alaina, maintaining her style is not a challenge; she believes anyone can have great style if they make it part of their daily routine. For everyone who loves the classic look, take notes from Alaina. When she doesn’t know what to wear, she reaches for a dress. “It’s an instant outfit,” she says, “no coordination required!” For all your other fashion crises, Alaina advises, “When in doubt, wear heels.” W
