Grey streaks Just one – see US congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard. It “suggests implicit power”, according to The Cut.

Tie-dye parties The new dinner party. A great way to transform faded whites, and very much not just for kids.

League Two football Specifically Forest Green Rovers, which has unveiled the world’s first kit made from bamboo.

Crystal teardrops As worn by models at the Acne Studios spring/summer 2020 show. Crying never looked so glam.

Colt followings The Row’s Mary-Kate Olsen has got equestrian chic down. And where she gallops, we follow.

Doric columns Gucci’s cruise show was held in a Roman museum and the shoot for its pre-fall campaign is set amongst the ruins of southern Sicily. Archaeology just got a whole lot more chic.

Bell sleeves The 70s trend was a blast from the past – but when your sleeves sample more of the guacamole dip than you do, it’s time to say goodbye.

Snakes and ladders Thanks to a Louis Vuitton edition, Jenga is the high-fashion game of choice.

Dressing tables Beyoncé prefers to be standing up to do her makeup. So we do, too.

Tissues Plug hayfever with a chic handkerchief. Proceeds from Massimo Alba’s latest edit go to African parks to preserve wildlife. Sustainable sneezing right there.

Slider blisters The solution: Ancient Greek Sandals X Perfect Momentterrycloth pool sliders.

Acupuncture Auriculotherapy, or “ear seeds”, are new the latest way to unblock your chakras. No needles necessary.

As the crisis escalates…

… in our natural world, we refuse to turn away from the climate catastrophe and species extinction. For The Guardian, reporting on the environment is a priority. We give reporting on climate, nature and pollution the prominence it deserves, stories which often go unreported by others in the media. At this pivotal time for our species and our planet, we are determined to inform readers about threats, consequences and solutions based on scientific facts, not political prejudice or business interests.

More people are reading and supporting The Guardian’s independent, investigative journalism than ever before. And unlike many news organisations, we have chosen an approach that allows us to keep our journalism accessible to all, regardless of where they live or what they can afford. But we need your ongoing support to keep working as we do.

The Guardian will engage with the most critical issues of our time – from the escalating climate catastrophe to widespread inequality to the influence of big tech on our lives. At a time when factual information is a necessity, we believe that each of us, around the world, deserves access to accurate reporting with integrity at its heart.

Our editorial independence means we set our own agenda and voice our own opinions. Guardian journalism is free from commercial and political bias and not influenced by billionaire owners or shareholders. This means we can give a voice to those less heard, explore where others turn away, and rigorously challenge those in power.

We need your support to keep delivering quality journalism, to maintain our openness and to protect our precious independence. Every reader contribution, big or small, is so valuable.
