THE HOLIDAYS ARE COMING

Knowing there’s lots of cooking and present-wrapping to do this week, I’ve started planning for those lovely family gatherings that happen after Christmas Day. Your New Year’s Eve dinner is instantly made simple with our Food to Order service, and I’d recommend the ready-made succulent lamb shanks with honey-roasted vegetables, worth ordering now. Lingerie editor Maggie Davis suggests a chic, smoothing firm-control slip, your fast track to an hourglass figure and great under party dresses, while womenswear editor Charlene Barton prepares us for the dreariest winter months with an uplifting royal blue alpaca and wool cocoon coat – also a key shade for early spring. Menswear editor William Oliver has his eye on a party-perfect polka-dot shirt, while little girls will love our cream fake-fur cropped coat. Enjoy the week!
