Monarch Style: Haja Sheriff Dresses to the Warm Autumn Weather
When spotted outside of MGB, Haja Sheriff, a freshman majoring in International Studies, revealed that the favorable weather was what spurred her to dress up.
“I wanted to take advantage of it,” Sheriff said.
A native of Woodbridge, Sheriff has been experimenting with her “chic and chill” style on campus by matching colors together in nontraditional blends. In the creation of this particular outfit, Sheriff tucked a pristine denim-blue button-down top into an olive-green pencil skirt.
“I didn’t think the colors would go together, but they do,” Sheriff said.
A simple gold chain bracelet helped spark up Sheriff’s outfit, as did her nail polish. ODU-appropriate blue and white polish adorned her fingernails, with flawless coral pink polished toes peeking out from her sandals. Incidentally, these sandals are her most treasured wardrobe item, as they go with everything, are comfortable, and just so easy to slip into.
Since Sheriff’s morning alarm sneaks up on her pretty frequently, these sandals come in handy. She also likes to stay “prepared with a couple hoodies” to throw on when the need to dash arises.
The 1950s are a style inspiration for Sheriff, and she would like to see the fashion of that era reemerge as a modern trend.
“There was this great sense of being classy and stylish,” Sheriff said.
Sheriff named Rihanna’s closet as the one she would most love to raid.
