5 key AW22 dress trends | Warming pudding recipes | Best weighted blankets | Cult Korean skincare


This semiprecious stone is trending far beyond the jewellery department

Opaque stones like turquoise, tiger's eye and onyx are often less expensive than clear precious gems, which helps explain why we associate them more with stylish bohemians than diamond-dripping millionaires (we're talking Brooklyn, not Mayfair). Malachite – a copper-rich stone found everywhere from Australia to Zambia – is like turquoise's moody autumnal sibling, with a rich, rippling green colour. And right now, it's everywhere.

There's jewellery, of course; you'll find lovely malachite pieces at Orelia, Mejuri and Missoma. More unexpected is the gem's infiltration of the world of luxury beauty. Dries Van Noten does a sleek malachite and red faux leather lipstick case (£30), Goop Beauty deploys malachite extract in its purifying G.Tox cleanser and skin tonic (from £44), and the bottle of Giorgio Armani's Prive Vert Malachite Eau De Parfum (£180 for 50ml) looks like it was carved straight from the stone. More affordable but just as striking is Spectrum's malachite kabuki brush (£9.99), made to be displayed proudly on a dressing table. Other brands utilise malachite-print fabrics, from Kitri's slinky party shirt (£95) to Susi Bellamy's marbled velvet cushion (£110). Finally, if you're determined to get organised this autumn, you're never too old for an academic year diary; Hallmark's malachite-inspired design (£25) is more beautiful than most. Still not convinced? The stone is also said to dispel negative energy – and we reckon we could all do with that right now.

Comforting TV shows to watch this weekend, as recommended by Team Stylist

Whether it's endless episodes of Friends or The Office on repeat, there's nothing like finding comfort in our favourite TV shows. And with some TV schedules and new releases affected this weekend, there's even more reason to fall back on old favourites. Stylist Loves' deputy editor Annie Simpson will be rewatching ITV's classic Northumberland-set detective series Vera, a crime drama for cosy days: "Forget tense, twisty plots, the ever-familiar formula is always an easy watch – with Vera's trademark no-nonsense sass keeping it entertaining." When the world feeds dark and depressing, Stylist's deputy editor and photography director Tom Gormer turns to another woman: Nigella. "Endless repeats of her cookery shows [on Netflix or BBC iPlayer] soothe me with food, drink and a pantry full of delights."

Proving that laughter really is the best medicine, social media director Chloe Laws always goes back to New Girl on Disney+. "The characters feel like friends, and no one makes me laugh like Winston and his cat." BBC One's ever-relatable Starstruck is the top choice for Stylist's editorial assistant Holly Bullock, thanks to Rose Matafeo's spot-on portrayal of 20-something London life blended with "heart-warming romance and a depiction of female friendship that will make you want to hug everyone you love". In a similar vein, contributor Moya Crockett loves Better Things on BBC iPlayer, a comedy-drama series about a single mother raising three daughters in LA that's "poignant and profound in its portrayal of family, as well as laugh-out-loud funny". Time to wrap yourself in a televisual hug.
