As the end of August approaches, this week is all about making the most of the season. We’ve got a playfully spotted little black dress that’s perfect for carefree summer days, and food & wine editor Becky Sunshine has picked out a crisp Devon farmhouse cider for a refreshing lunchtime treat. Meanwhile, we’re preparing for the post-holiday return to work with menswear editor William Oliver’s Get the Look feature, which offers a contemporary take on tailoring for those who need to be smart but not too formal, and guest editor Teo van den Broeke, associate editor of Esquire magazine, has selected Autograph’s modern attaché case as a stylish office wardrobe update. You’ll find all these inspiring reads and more in this week’s Style & Living.
It was a decadent 56th birthday last weekend for Madonna, who marked the occasion with a lavish 1920s-themed party. The superstar – snapped here with her manager Guy Oseary – sported a signature red lip for the bash – a look she’s been channelling since her first tour in 1985. Want to make your pout pop? Try Stila’s Stay All Day Vinyl lipstick in Scarlet, which is designed to stay put – no matter how long your party lasts.
