With winter now well behind us, here on Style & Living we’re looking firmly to the future. For our latest In the Moment interview, senior researcher at Breakthrough Breast Cancer Dr Beatrice Howard tells Charlene Barton the inspiring story of the work she does for the cause, despite being diagnosed with the disease twice herself. Elsewhere, we take a trip down memory lane in our British Fifties Trend Spotlight, taking cues from classic menswear styling to create a look that’s bang up to date, while food & wine editor Becky Sunshine tempts us with a decadent chocolate egg that’s so delicious, it’ll be hard not to open it before Easter. Home editor Jo Caulkett recommends a beautiful home fragrance to infuse your rooms with a spring-like scent, and the lightness of the season is also reflected in our new Best of British blouse and skirt set, and in junior editor Lizzy Wilkinson’s pick of daisy lace knickers. It looks like spring has truly sprung.
From the front rows of fashion week to a plethora of magazine shoots and celebrity spots, our Autograph suede skirt has become the talk of fashion town this spring. Mastering the season’s penchant for Seventies suede has proved tricky until now, but this hotly anticipated piece – seen here on Olivia Palermo and Alexa Chung – is your fast-track to on-trend chic. Don’t miss your chance to snap one up: simply register your interest now and we’ll email you as soon as the skirt becomes available.
