Hurray for the school holidays – for the kids at least! I’m sure stylish little girls will love kidswear editor Maggie Davis’s choice of a jersey and tulle dress – it’s great for casual days with trainers or cute for parties. For Mum, it’s time to get beach ready, which is why our beauty Get the Look feature, guest edited by Glamour magazine’s Rebecca Cox, is on the money. Think skin scrubbing, waterproof make-up and hydrating care for sun-exposed hair. Once the beauty regime is out of the way, you’ll want our womenswear editor Charlene Barton’s pick of a soft peach maxi dress – ideal for cocktails at sunset, garden parties and weddings. For men, we’re focusing on holiday-wardrobe essentials. That means striped T-shirts, the perfect khaki shorts, cotton chinos and lightweight jackets, all in a neutral colour palette. There’s all this and more in Style & Living this week.
It's a year since Prince George started charming the nation – and we’d like to say a big ‘Happy Birthday’ to the future king. Already instated as a style icon, the toddler’s outfits have sparked a host of trends: the Pan Peter collar, nautical-style romper suits – not to mention his signature dungarees-and-polo-shirt combo. If you’re marking the occasion by treating the little man in your life, we’ve taken inspiration from the royal wardrobe and collected our 10 favourite gift ideas, fit for a prince.
