Maybe insanely-awesome personal style can't be taught in school, but there's clearly something about a college campus that makes students boost their wardrobe IQs. And lest we forget, Washington isn't just a political town—it's also home to a host of top-notch colleges with delightfully diverse campus style scenes. To prove it, we scoured the quads at Georgetown, George Washington, and Howard universities, on the lookout for studious beauties with outstanding outfits. Along the way, we spotted military jackets done right, some crazy-chic sunglasses, and plenty of inspiring layering techniques. Check out these top-of-the-class ensembles and get schooled on chic fall style.
