We don’t exactly have the best reputation when it comes to style, beauty, or fashion.
The Crimson’s annual selection of “15 Hottest Freshmen” is an annual target of ridicule and mockery by the bored blogosphere. (Hey, we don’t call it “Harvard hot” for no reason!) While Boston, the place we call “home” and our stock reply to the question: “Where do you go to school?,” doesn’t fare any better. Last year, GQ Magazine named Boston the worst dressed city in America, calling it the country’s “Bad-Taste Storm Sewer: all the worst fashion ideas from across the country flow there, stagnate, and putrefy.” Cambridge also earned a (dis)honorable mention as the “modest little burg” where “everyone dresses like the proprietor of his or her very own meth lab.” Ouch. (But are we really surprised?)
(Mr. John B. Thompson of GQ, if you happen to be reading this, we’d love to meet you. Major hearts.)
This coming week, Harvard’s fashion-related student organizations have teamed up to organize the first ever Harvard Fashion Week. The purpose, evidently, is beautifying the campus and changing the perception that the typical Harvard male spends most of his collegiate career in sweats as his female counterpart prances around in leggings-as-pants, a Northface, and Uggs.

Eleganza, a major fashion and dance show produced by Harvard students, is having two events this week in order to raise funds for the show, which will take place during Prefrosh weekend.
What: Branded jewelry from Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Ann Taylor, J. Crew, Anthropologie, and others, normally priced at up to $200, are going for $8-$25.
Where: Democracy Center, 45 Mt. Auburn street (next to Daedalus restaurant)
Click here for the Facebook event.
Thursday, March 31st -
What: Bid for a date with one of their student models, some of whom are featured here.
Looks are presented by Rent the Runway, a company run by Harvard Business School graduates that allows members to rent or buy runway looks at reduced prices. (Promotional code HARVARD15, for $15 off of orders of $75 or more.)
Where: The Hasty Pudding Club, 2 Garden Street
There might be an open bar. There definitely will be a very well-dressed and preppy crowd. There’s also a $10 suggested donation at the door. And you thought you could get into the Pudding without at least some financial clout.
The point of this post is that beauty doesn’t come cheap. But you should definitely come.

Layering, it’s a neglected art in these parts. Listen up Harvard, layering does not mean wearing your North Face puffer over whatever it is you decided to wear to section that day. It’s about wearing an outfit, not a strictly utilitarian cocoon of warmth to get you from here to Northwest Labs.
And ladies, balance it out. Leggings as pants, fine. But if you’ve just got on tights (God forbid you’re bare-legged in February) and your top half looks like you’re smuggling a couple Sherpas you may need to consider some heavier-duty bottoms. Same goes for guys in shorts this time of year; they don’t make you look casual and nonchalant, they make you look lost.
Below are some gorgeous examples of coordinated winter layers in neutral tones. An easy change from the ubiquitous black puffers and peacoats.
