The New Look sale is very hit and miss this year in my opinion, with the majority of pieces not really worth shouting about, but there are still some real gems on offer! My personal favourites are the two jackets I have included in this edit, especially the checked collarless coat which has been reduced from £59.99 to £18. I haven’t ordered anything online, but I will be nipping into the store when I get back to Manchester with my sights set on the £6 lace insert cami and the jewellery, as I think I have a few too many coats already.
Take a look at the bits I have featured below, clockwise from top left:
I love to keep my eye on the ‘new in’ pages of my favourite shops’ websites, and was particularly impressed this week when I was lurking the recent additions to the New Look site.
What good is a winter wardrobe which doesn’t feature a bit (or a lot) of tartan? I found these trousers in Primark a few weeks ago (in their formal section along with a matching blazer which I didn’t quite have the guts to buy to complete the tartan suit, although I am somewhat regretting that decision now!). I love the dark colours and lack of red, I think that avoiding red tartan trousers altogether is the easiest way of sidestepping looking like you’ve bought a “Punk” costume for Halloween (that’s not to say that some people can’t rock them though). These are very subtle and easy to wear, and the shape is really great too!
Here I paired them with a mesh paneled top from Choies, amazing new imitation suede and sheepskin biker jacket from H&M. The jacket was a bargain £30 because I used a 25% discount code from an H&M email (I would definitely recommend signing up to their mailing list!), but even at full price (£39.99) it is definitely affordable and makes a nice change from the usual leather biker.
