WELCOME…

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.

THE ROYAL ARRIVAL

The evidence was conclusive: pants orders in feminine shades, the mother-to-be's suggestive pink coats and her tell-tale sugar cravings; Prince George would definitely have a little sister. As it turns out, the rumour mill was right after all. Congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on the birth of their beautiful baby girl!
