WELCOME TO THE NEW GLAMOUR. AS WE PUT together this issue—my inaugural one here at the magazine—I started thinking about my first job. I earned my very first paycheck at the age of 14, stacking supermarket shelves in a place called Ballincollig, a town in County Cork in the south of Ireland. Even at that age, I was able to grasp the thrilling independence that came with having my own income. The truth is, that thrill overwhelmed any sense of frugality: I blew my paycheck on an outfit to go out dancing at a local disco. As our team at Glamour sat down to plan this issue, the Money Issue, I thought a lot about that experience and so many others over the years in which I had to learn, bit…

“Wearing a T-shirt under a one-piece makes for a supercute look that can work for the pool or walking downtown.”—Kelly Moreira (@lylie_moreira) Now Make It Last We’ve all been there: A swimsuit looks great in the store, then becomes a shapeless, pilled mess after a few trips to the beach. Gwen Whiting, cofounder of luxe garment-care line The Laundress, shares her three swimsuit maintenance commandments: 1. Thou shalt wash by hand.
