Something caught your eye in this week’s magazine?  

As part of Stylist’s Made By Girls takeover – which saw our entire issue crafted by a team of girls aged 5 – 17, in honour of International Day of the Girl – we travelled to Glasgow and asked class P2 to create this week’s Style List.

It was certainly an eye-opening experience, as 30 girls, all aged between five and eight years old, schooled us on everything we thought we knew about fashion, homewares, beauty.

We have to say, we think their choices are wise beyond their years. Enjoy!
