Welcome to our annual Style issue. Home to brands you can afford, trends that don’t look stupid and the occasional item you wouldn’t think twice about treat- ing yourself to. Now, when it comes to style, many haters in the RWD office will say I wouldn’t know the difference between a pair of tortoiseshell sunglasses and a turtleneck sweater. To those naysayers that deny my swag I say, “nay”. I’m under the opinion that people can wear what they like (apart from onesies: see last month’s Enough Already). Style is objective. What works for one person might not work for an- other. Different strokes for different folks, etc.
Someone else who’s in their own style lane is this issue’s cover star, London 2012 breakout star, Louis Smith; he’ll be the first to tell you that he wears what he wants. In the same vein, his fellow Team GB affiliate, gold medal getting Anthony Joshua, the man with the voice, Tyler James, Ellie Goulding – fresh with a style switch-up – and everyone else in this issue have been picked for a reason. They throw it down.
For the style conscious, this issue is you!
