Agenda: Warehouse; Aiden Grimshaw; Revenge; Gray and Turner; Shrimpy's

 

Fashion: Pencil in the celebrations

Kill two trends with one skirt in this lemon-yellow broderie number (pictured above) from Warehouse. You'll score points for your on-trend pastels and your ultra-feminine laciness, while also fitting in a treat for Jubilee weekend – this citrus hue is one of Her Majesty's favourites, while the pencil shape is suitably 1950s too. It won't clash with your Union Jack hat either. £60, warehouse.co.uk

Face to watch: Aiden Grimshaw

You may remember Grimshaw as the scary facial contortionist from 2010's X Factor, but bear with us: out next Sunday, single "Is This Love" is a gorgeous, fluttering piece of trip-pop that bodes well for August's debut album

Lexpionage: Poke & mirrors, phr.
