Whether you’ve managed to figure out the traffic-light system to go on holiday abroad, or are staycationing in the UK, the best swimwear will see you through any pool or beachside situation. There’s nothing wrong with sunbathing in your garden or on your balcony, making sure you’re protected your skin with SPF moisturisers and eyes with sunglasses naturally.

For super timeless, sustainable styles I always turn to one of my favourite Australian brands, Matteau (the square cut swimsuits...

They say it’s always best to start small, so if you’re trying to build a more eco-friendly wardrobe, may I suggest you start with sustainable lingerie? While lingerie isn’t exactly one of the most environmentally friendly industries, there are a few ethical fashion brands doing their very best to change that in different ways.

Your guide to Meghan Markle fashion brands. Meghan Markle’s dress sense has changed drastically over the past few years.

It’s a capsule line for now, though I imagine it’ll be extended if it’s successful, and why wouldn’t it be? It includes two wedding dresses, lingerie and accessories, all ideal for canicular weddings. In terms of the vibe, it’s very much vintage-meets-Ibiza. Think silky, long lacy champagne silk where the dresses are concerned, lace and satin underwear and floral or gathered silk bridal headbands. There’s also a silk dressing gown should you wish to buy the full look. Prices start at...
