Welcome to Style & Living

Mid-summer is all about smart style solutions, those buys that work hard for office and off-duty during the warmer months. I’m feeling inspired by guest editor Harriet Walker’s Editor’s Pick, a matching trouser set in a statement graffiti print that’s surprisingly easy to wear. The little ones are looking for distraction, so try Isabelle O’Carroll’s fun idea, a long-sleeve superhero T-shirt with a detachable cape – great for keeping the little guy busy for hours. For men, William Oliver suggests avoiding summer showers in style with a lightweight, water-resistant windcheater. And for those of us not travelling, home editor Jo Caulkett recommends a textured jute rug for adding a fresh touch to your home. Enjoy these features and plenty more in this week’s Style & Living.

We never need an excuse, but this week we really have something to celebrate. M&S has won of a host of gongs including the International Wine Challenge’s Supermarket of the Year – for the second year running – along with six gold, 50 silver and 82 bronze medals. If you’re looking for somewhere to start sampling our award-winning wines, our Eclipse Riesling was this month presented with the International Trophy – the highest accolade at the Decanter World Wine Awards. Cheers!
