First Day At Harvard. Elle wears this ensemble for Harvard Variations / Positive. It is composed of a pink jacket/blazer, a pink tank with "HARVARD" across the front, jeans, and a phenomenal pair of go-go boots. In the West End production, Sheridan Smith wears a white blouse under the tank, making it more of a preppy vest look.
