Welcome to Style & Living

As the end of August approaches, this week is all about making the most of the season. We’ve got a playfully spotted little black dress that’s perfect for carefree summer days, and food & wine editor Becky Sunshine has picked out a crisp Devon farmhouse cider for a refreshing lunchtime treat. Meanwhile, we’re preparing for the post-holiday return to work with menswear editor William Oliver’s Get the Look feature, which offers a contemporary take on tailoring for those who need to be smart but not too formal, and guest editor Teo van den Broeke, associate editor of Esquire magazine, has selected Autograph’s modern attaché case as a stylish office wardrobe update. You’ll find all these inspiring reads and more in this week’s Style & Living.
