This week, we’re beginning to think dreamily about those summer events we all love – garden parties, barbecues, weddings and summer sports days out – and trying to work out what we need to attend them in style. Starting with the layer that lies beneath, lingerie editor Maggie Davis has rounded up a comprehensive guide to summer shapewear that will give you an extra boost of confidence, however skimpy the frock you’re wearing. Elsewhere, we have some jaunty tumblers to make entertaining alfresco a colourful affair; a Riviera-inspired men’s shirt; a beautiful floral girls’ party dress that’s smart enough for weddings and christenings; a make-up trick to get you summer-event-ready in seconds; and a chic boxy jacket that works as well for smart occasions as it does on a city break. There’s also a look at our brilliant new capsule sleepwear collection, which can be mixed and matched to make lounging around on summer evenings suitably stylish. Enjoy.
While we might have been enjoying some glorious sunshine over the past weeks, a natural tan can be a little more difficult to come by. So thank goodness for fake tan, the fast – and safe – route to that holiday-fresh glow. It doesn’t matter if you’re heading to warmer climes or simply want to show off that new summer dress in the office, get that convincing bronzed look in a flash with our extensive range of self-tans.
