What should I wear??
No need to go shopping for the reunion (unless you really want to)! Attire for all of the daytime events will be comfortable weekend clothing. Most evening events have some seating, but are primarily stand-up events with passed food and cocktail tables – so wear comfortable shoes.
Our Friday and Saturday night events are meant to be festive, not formal. Friday night is a creative lounge/jazz club atmosphere. Saturday night is a picnic dinner on small tables at the Pops concert. Men can leave their jackets and ties at home. Women can leave fancy dresses and high heels at home.
As you may remember, spring weather in Cambridge is unpredictable! Last year it was 98 degrees at graduation. In 1989 we were ready to build an ark for the procession.
Navigating the cobblestone streets and grassy areas in Harvard Yard means that practicality should take precedence over fashion. Comfortable footwear may be essential to your overall happiness. Bring an umbrella, a light jacket, and a sense of humor.
