editor’s letter

THE ART OF BEING PAINFULLY COOLCool—the slang, not temperature—is more than just a phrase. It’s a lifestyle, a marketing guy’s mission, a hashtag with over 150 million mentions on IG. It’s the group we wanted to be part of in school, and the driving force behind many of our outfit, dating, and playlist choices.But what does it mean to be ‘cool’? It’s a complex formula, naturally, so we’re lucky that science is here to help. Last year, two scientists were arguing about whether actor Steve Buscemi was cool or not. Serious stuff. They were unable to arrive at a conclusion, so they decided to conduct a social-science experiment, enlisting the help of hundreds of students to sum up the exact nature of coolness.What they discovered was this: there is not…

WHY DOES IT WORK?No, The Golden Girls isn’t having a revival…but your granny’s favourite tea-time dunker is fashion’s hot new shade. Worried you’ll look like a sad, old cracker? Brands like Burberry and Balmain, along with celebrities such as Gigi Hadid, are proving that, with elegant tailoring and modern accessorising, read: dressing like a biscuit can be more flattering than you’d think.COLOUR MATCHAvoid the dreaded washout—beige with yellow undertones flatters warm skin, and beige with pink undertones works for cooler complexions. Still not sold on head-to-toe? Incorporate complementary neutrals, such as brown, blush, or white, to break it up.SHAPE OF YOUThe number-one rule for not disappearing into a blob of crumpet-y colour is to wear at least one structured piece.
