Welcome to Style & Living

Floral-print lingerie, men’s seersucker shorts and the finest fake tan range – could there be a more compelling trio to sound the start of summer? In Style & Living this week we’re trying to ease you gently into the warm weather with these three Editor’s Picks. Thanks to the M&S beauty offering, which is much wider than it once was and now encompasses some of the world’s most exciting brands, there is a plethora of self-tanning products to help you on your way, most notably St Tropez and Fake Bake. Our Style & Living beauty editor reviews the latter this week and this pale-skinned editor will be first in the queue...

WHAT’S NEW

LATEST NEWS

ALL BLACK & WHITE

It’s official: monochrome is the trend of the season. Celebrities are loving it: everyone from Kylie to Taylor Swift is stepping out in black and white. And the S/S 2014 catwalks were peppered with it: think minimalist looks at Victoria Beckham and all-over prints at Marc by Marc Jacobs. If top to toe isn’t your style, take your cues from Sophie Ellis-Bextor, recently spotted in London rocking a polka-dot M&S blouse, and here looking equally stylish in chic separates.
