Welcome to Style & Living

I love the start of a new season – it’s a great excuse for a wardrobe refresh. M&S style director Belinda Earl is our guest editor this week and has selected a statement jacquard shift dress from our new Best of British range. Womenswear editor Charlene Barton recommends a classic transeasonal plaid shirt, great with jeans and ankle boots for off-duty days. Kidswear editor Maggie Davis has her eye on a smart back-to-school skirt for girls, while beauty editor Jess Clark suggests treating end-of-summer skin with Dr Hauschka Soothing Cleansing Milk, a gentle plant-based alternative to soap and water. Enjoy these features and more in this week’s Style & Living.
