This thought-provoking new novel takes you behind the scenes of pre-#MeToo Hollywood

Cast your mind back to late 2017, when Hollywood film producer Harvey Weinstein was accused of rape, sexual assault and sexual abuse by more than 80 women. Now imagine you'd been part of that world, trying to claw your way up the film industry's ridiculously competitive ladder: how much, and how often, would you turn a blind eye to certain situations in order to safeguard your own position? And how would you feel about it a decade later when headline-making accusations come to light? This is the premise of Complicit (Orion), the second novel by London-based, American-Taiwanese author Winnie M Li – and it's a must-read for anyone who's ever wondered what really goes on behind Hollywood's PR-approved glamour.

"When we first meet 39-year-old protagonist Sarah Lai, she's a screenwriting lecturer at a no-name college, despite having had a promising career as a film producer in her 20s," says Stylist Loves editor Gemma Crisp. "When a star reporter at The New York Times gets in touch to ask about her years working with bigshot producer Hugo North, you can't help but make comparisons to journalist Ronan Farrow and Weinstein. What follows is a series of flashbacks as Sarah methodically reveals her struggle to get a foot in the door, the inequalities she put up with, the power struggles she witnessed as she dedicated her life to her career – and how she slowly begins to lose sight of herself and her values as her success increases. It's a slippery slope that many will recognise and a timely reminder that we should never lose sight of the #MeToo movement." £14.99; Bookshop.org

Headscarves are the celebrity-approved summer accessory that everyone can wear

Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Queen Elizabeth II – if there's one thing this trio has in common, it's their love of a headscarf. And now we're seeing the timeless staple re-emerge as one of this summer's key hair accessories, with Bridgerton's Simone Ashley and fashion influencers Emili Sindlev and Tamu McPherson all sporting the look in recent weeks. The braver amongst us can take inspiration from the spring/summer 2022 runways of Giorgio Armani, Salvatore Ferragamo and The Row by wrapping a scarf around the entire head, or for a more 90s-inspired look, channel Versace's and Fendace's models with their half-covered approach.

If you're ready to revisit 1999, look no further than ASOS Collusion's classic bandana print (£6.99), but for a slightly more chic monochrome pattern, we love & Other Stories' graphic design (£45). Can't get enough colour for summer? Mango's psychedelic pastel print (£12.99) is ideal for fun festival fashion, with Lisou's cheery rainbow style (£55) adding some sunshine to overcast days. Leafy green botanical silks are the name of the game at Jigsaw (£70), while Zara's multi-coloured, pattern-clashing scarf (£29.99) will be the perfect addition to your low-key beach holiday wardrobe. Second (or third) day hair never looked so good.
