SoCal Fashion Column: Step into a new year with a New Look

WOS Wrestling commentator and MK fashionista SoCal Val talks about her ‘power colour’ and how you can try a new colour or trend.

Happy New Year, fashionable friends! I’ll use ANY excuse to refresh my wardrobe but I won’t waste your time with a ‘New Year, New Me’ speech.

Here’s the thing… I don’t magically transform into an entirely new person come January 1st. I’m still unapologetically fearless with fashion yet have a firm grasp on my traditional favourite looks.

In today’s outfit I took my ‘power colour’ of green and RAN with it!

I couldn’t believe how many compliments this simply constructed green coat received over the holidays. An absolute steal at £34.99 from New Look at intu MK!

Whist there I also picked up this classic matching beret and versatile leopard scarf. New Look is a high street brand that is, in my opinion, perfect in many ways.

Great quality fashion at a very reasonable price point. A reliable choice every single season.

When I urge you to up your style quotient I hope you know that I never mean to steer you toward unattainable, expensive goals!

That is not my style at all. My goal is to dress well and to look polished but never break the bank.

It’s super easy to try a new colour, trend or silhouette at New Look because the selection is superb, their customer service is stellar and, most importantly, you can trust that what you purchase is going to make you feel good.

Hooray for a brand that has FUN with fashion!

What I adore about this look is that it’s mostly monochrome (all in the same colour family) but broken up by a pop of leopard and fun accessories.

I particularly LOVE green as a backdrop for my red hair but you can choose a palette that suits your tastes, whatever they may be.

The point, darlings, is that you DESERVE to sashay into the new year in a New Look.
