After Warren’s forsaking of skinny jeans, she says that wide cut jeans are a favorable option to joggers or sweatpants.

Natalie Warren ’18 sports a worn pair of faded yellow Timberlands. A leopard print blouse covers her torso over wide cut blue jeans.

Warren said, “I’ve started venturing into the realm of wide-leg jeans just because I realized that I’m really over skinny jeans… I can’t constrict myself like that. It’s just not humane to my poor legs. They don’t deserve to suffocate in skinny jeans all day… wide-leg jeans have started to become a trend. I can get down with that.”

According to both Warren and Emily Ndiokho ’18, she looks best when combining styles.

Ndiokho, a friend of Warren’s, said, “[Warren] has a way with combining styles that I would have never really considered cool or fashionable and then turns them into a really sophisticated, really stylish, and really gorgeous way of dressing. It’s one of those things where it’s like, whenever Nat’s wearing something, I know that I can spot her from the path and be like, ‘Oh, that’s Natalie.’”

Warren said, “I love the pairing of a sweatshirt and a skirt. I like that dichotomy of ‘comfy sporty’ with girly… I think that’s how I would describe my style. It’s boyish, but also girly.”

Warren says that she finds most of the inspiration for her clothing and fashion online.

“Usually, I’m just online shopping and procrastinating, and I’ll just stumble across something that I like. Sometimes, I buy it. I just kind of put outfits together… My inspiration is just, ‘Do what I want,’” said Warren.

Warren also purchased one of her favorite pieces of clothing online.

“My favorite pair of sweatpants is these really colorful camo ones. They’re purple and green and blue. I usually wear those with a black or white sweatshirt so it’s not too overwhelming,” said Warren.

According to Warren, she was well known for her green choker during her Upper Year.

Warren often sports her Timberlands, complementing her comfortable yet fashionable style.“I wear Timberlands a lot. Especially in the winter when there’s snow everywhere, I wear them every day because they’re so versatile and they’re cute. My feet won’t sweat in my Timbs, but they will sweat in rain boots … So I just wear them all the time because they go with everything and they always keep my feet warm and dry and don’t make them sweat,” said Warren.
