  • Street style in 1953. Wellesley College students photographed by Lisa Larsen.
Sidenote: I’m pretty sure the caps a couple of the girls are wearing are actually “beanies.” I don’t know how beanies are currently used at Wellesley but I hope some vestiges still exist. At my high school, which used to be a prep school for Wellesley, Senior girls give Junior girls beanies during one of our traditions as part of the passing on of seniority. The beanies are a formality now, since they’re only worn during this tradition, and it’s neat to see them being worn casually in this photo.
