It might be Wimbledon; it’s definitely the sun ; but there’s that feelgood feeling in the air. You’ve worked hard, but finally it’s time to reap the rewards. Grab your passport – it’s HOLIDAY time.
Nothing beats turning on your ‘out of office’, but I know only too well about that mad dash to get everything done before my flight. So this issue is all about solving every vacation dilemma. Did you know that as a nation, we spend around £216 on outfits for our trip? I’m definitely a huge holiday spender (c’mon, that new dress looks way better with a sunset backdrop) but p8 has me sorted with the ultimate denim shorts and strappy tops worthy of my suitcase weight. If you’re still looking for that ‘made for Insta’ bikini, you’ll also find your coolest cozzie on p29 – plus how to beat those extreme tan lines.
I wasn’t shocked to find out that we love to binge on beauty pre-holiday too, spending a third of our hols budget before we go. From the travel minis that are worth it to the high-street store fragrance not to be missed, see p22 for beachworthy hauls whatever you have to spend.
If you’re only squeezing in city breaks this year, the hottest new brands are even cheaper abroad and we know where to send you, from cool AF Spanish shop Lefties to Parisian label Sézane, which has influencers obsessed.
As you can see, we take our annual leave pretty seriously at Look and I want you to as well. Not only is it good your career (see p46), a break is good for your health and happiness, too. And after the recent dark times, I’m raising an iced Pimm’s to that.
