In the ever-evolving landscape of aesthetic trends, the year 2024 is witnessing a resurgence of the indie sleaze aesthetic. This movement that once had the 2000s in a chokehold, characterized by its bold, unapologetic maximalism, stands in stark contrast to the minimalistic, “clean girl” aesthetics that dominated last year. After the idolization of figures Matilda Djerf, Hailey Bieber and Sofia Richie Grainge, have we finally gotten sick of slick back buns and pastel colors in favor of vibrancy and self expression? This shift has been most recently seen in the rising popularity of indie sleaze, as well as the broader rise in maximalist trends, pushed by the cultural impact of artists like Zach Bryan and movies such as Emerald Fennell’s “Saltburn.”

With tulips blooming along Occom Pond and masses of students flocking to the river, a long-awaited spring has officially arrived in New Hampshire. The exciting promise of Green Key has created a tangible anticipation that lingers in the air, but one persisting question remains: What do I wear?
The clothing options on Hanover’s Main Street, like J. Crew and other aesthetically similar boutiques, epitomize the general fashion trends of our campus and town. This is why one of my first destinations upon returning to California for winter break was Fairfax Avenue in Downtown Los Angeles. It was a refreshing break from chinos and plaid. Regional fashion, of course, is not homogenous, but Los Angeles taste-makers err towards a deceptively casual aesthetic.
To Whom It May Concern:
Overheard ‘19: “I’m so stressed! Other ’19: “Why? What’s wrong?” ‘19: “I have a paper due tomorrow and a midterm on Wednesday. But that’s fine. I’m stressing about my Halloween costume. It might not come on time!”
As autumn arrives and the air grows crisp, you may awake to realize that your summer footwear just won’t cut it anymore. You need something that is warm and waterproof; something that can be worn with any outfit, day or night; something that seemingly every student has in the back of their closet. You need a pair of Bean Boots — duck boots if you’re a traditionalist. They’ll keep your feet dry in rain, snow or sleet. Come at me, winter you think. I’ll be prepared.
Of course, with school spirit comes school swag. Even if you look like a slob, it has been proven that if you're wearing something with a Dartmouth logo on it, no one is allowed to confront you. But where do you draw the line with the logo? I investigated to find the 15 things that you never knew you needed the Dartmouth logo on.
Among the recent questionable trends reputed to increase men’s attractiveness (read: Dadbod), there is one that stands alone in its undeniable, universal, feminine appeal: the man bun. Popularized by Jared Leto, the man-bun movement started gaining momentum this past fall. Although the style brings to mind celebrities like Bradley Cooper and Brad Pitt, we need not look beyond Hanover to find guys rocking the glory of the man bun. If you’ve missed the on-campus man buns somehow, have no fear! The new Instagram account @manbuns_of_dartmouth documents some of the most marvelous of Dartmouth man buns. Arielle Gordon-Rowe ’18, one of the account’s creators, said she made the page as a platform for the growing trend in the man bun’s popularity. When she approaches man bun connoisseurs for photographs, most are eager to show off their hair, but a few are more reluctant. Still, most seem to come around eventually.

After hours of deliberation, I have compiled the most influential list of our time: a ranking of Dartmouth presidents by hairstyle. I carefully examined each hairstyle, looking for creativity, manageability, shape and texture before determining my score.It ultimately came down to how well the presidents worked with the hair they had.Some hair defied gravity, some hair grew in thick and others’ hair stopped growing in. My final verdict: while being Dartmouth’s president may be one of the most chic jobs out there, be warned that it may also cause hair loss. Without further ado, here are the 18 most stylish presidents, in order from meh to oh la la!

I am tired of wearing winter clothing. It’s always a sweater and some jeans (with a few accessories, of course), and it honestly feels like a uniform to me. This term I’ve found myself online shopping and dreaming of what dresses I will get to wear in the spring. So yes, even though we are currently covered in what seems like 10 feet of snow, I’m writing about upcoming spring trends. Deal with it.

Here are some that I’ve found to be particularly useful and creative.
