1. The Kimono

Pretty yet practical, casual yet glam, and better still, the kimono doubles up as the chicest night-out cover-up - easy win! For a catwalk-inspired take, turn to Anna Sui.

3. Wedding bells

Fearne Cotton turned Mrs Wood earlier this month when she married her long-term partner, Jesse. The Radio 1 DJ wore a whimsical Pucci wedding dress to the low-key ceremony. We swooned!

4. Made in Dagenham

Gemma Arterton makes her West-End debut alongside Adrian der Gregorian in Richard Bean’s award-winning play. Directed by Rupert Goold, Made in Dagenham, opens at London’s Playhouse Theatre now.

5. Fresh blooms

Key Piece: The Slider

The humble pool slide has been luxed up for spring. Thank Celine’s Phoebe Philo for serving up these Nineties favourites, with a slice of signature Parisian minimalism. Besides the fact they are undeniably cute, the pool slide offers a fresh alternative to flip-flops and strappy gladiators. Daniel Footwear’s Tosda Leopard Sandal will add more bite to your look than classic black and white styles.
