Clever merchandising enables New Look to show off its comprehensive trend-led offer.
Only Peacocks matches New Look’s breadth of leopard-print options, from a faux-fur coat and chiffon blouse to dresses and knits. Knitwear is strong, featuring Fair Isle dresses, cable-knit and cowl-neck jumpers and long-line cardigans. The outerwear offer stands out, with aviator jackets, duffle coats, macs, military coats and faux-leather jackets. The denim selection is one of the best in the category.
New Look crams in a lot of trends and product into this store, but clever merchandising make for a pleasant shopping experience. A huge PoS poster of a model sporting an aviator jacket grabs shoppers’ attention as they enter the store.
New Look remains one of the most competitive retailers in its category, with aviator and cropped military jackets selling for £39.99 each, and hooded cotton macs even cheaper at £34.99. A faux-fur leopard-print coat is £44.99. Knitwear is also good value - a short, knitted skirt is £14.99, a Fair Isle red dress £21.99 and a cowl-neck cable-knit dress £18. Cropped harem pants sell for £12, while jodhpur trousers with leather knee pads are £24.99. Leggings start from just £6.99.
