With last week’s heatwave, it’s safe to say that we’re feeling very excited about summer here on the Style & Living team. So much so, it’s inspired us to dedicate this week’s issue to making a smooth transition into warmer climes – it might still be spring, but who says you can’t enjoy that summer feeling now? This week, we’re launching a new and exclusive Plus collection on womenswear and ask plus-size blogger Georgina Horne to choose her favourite piece: a flattering floral maxi dress that will work beautifully for this season’s calendar of events. Beauty editor Emma Robertson has a brilliant skin-brightening serum to give your complexion a sunny-weather boost, and don’t miss Jo Caulkett’s colourful two-tone tumblers that guarantee to brighten your mood and are perfect for drinks in the sun. For the gents, menswear editor Ian Wright shows you how to work this season’s vibrant palette into your everyday look; plus, his versatile mac will have you laughing in the face of any pesky April showers. Enjoy!
Fashion Targets Breast Cancer, the iconic charity fashion campaign, is back for 2015, and a host of chic female celebrities, including Lilah Parsons and Lily Donaldson, will be inspiring women across the UK to support the fight. M&S has joined the campaign with a range of exclusive pieces. What better way to welcome the sunshine, and tick off two of this season’s top trends, than with a vibrant floral jumpsuit, as sported by Made in Chelsea’s Rosie Fortescue (pictured), one of the charity’s stylish ambassadors.
