SADLY, this is the last Get the Look. Next week, due to popular demand, we bring back Yes Please and No Thank You under the auspices of our rising star, Imogen Fox; she will continue to provide the practical shopping advice Get the Look did, and more. But onwards, this week with bumbags, which are set to return if Helmut Lang is to be believed. Many of us have carried on wearing them since the Eighties, when they were last in, but slung across a shoulder rather than strapped to the waist. This summer, the streets will be awash with these little pouches, bulging with all sorts. And lots of designers now make them so you don't have to resort to using a patch leather one from a stall off Oxford Street. They look best worn tight to the waist with close-fitting sports clothes. Over a baggy T-shirt, they look pretty awful... this year. AB
