Something old & new
I’ve always hated the phrase ‘out with the old, in with the new’. It’s derogatory on so many levels – most of which are too important to go into in these 250 words. However, when it comes to style, I can take the saying with a pinch of salt. Of course, we all have older pieces in our wardrobes that are more sentimental; my favourite dress, for example, is a £45 Zara number I bought in 2013 that transports me from girly nights out to my honeymoon to last week’s bank holiday with every wear.
But, much like how I imagine my friends with children feel about having their second, third, and even forth sprogs, there’s always room in my heart for more. So, I consider it Look’s obligation to show you new things that’ll become just as beloved as your existing wares. We’ve whittled down the very best of autumn collections hitting stores now (p8). From River Island’s new luxe edit and Primark’s premium offerings to the US brand making waves on Brit soil, you’re sure to find something that makes your heart skip a beat. These aren’t the only launches we’re losing our minds over: ASOS has some very exiting news to share with you on p18. ‘New’, however, isn’t just material: it can be a skill. We’ve reviewed the best beauty courses to up your make-up game significantly (p68). Or, if more money is your goal, I recommend taking a leaf out of a side hustler’s book (p42). After all, every new beginning – be it sartorial or otherwise – has to start somewhere…
eek! Our fave e-tailer is now doing make-up
