Jungle Print

Arguably, jungle print’s defining moment was 20 years ago (yes, really!) when Jennifer Lopez strode onto the stage at the Grammys in Versace-green and set a new bar for statement dressing. Earlier this year J-Lo closed the show at Versace in an updated version of the iconic gown, ensuring a return for jungle to our normcore lives.

If you suspect you may not get much wear out of Donatella Versace’s reimagining of the original frock, adorn your wrist instead of your bod. The Medusa Frame watch by Versace £1,090, selfridges.com

Luxury British pyjama brand, Desmond & Dempsey are the latest design label to collaborate with H&M. This charming linen-blend playsuit in petrol blue and white keeps the leafy vibe but offers a different take on the theme. £24.99, hm.com

Please don’t nitpick. We know zebras don’t live in the jungle; we googled it, they like wide grassy plains. However, the aesthetic is all here and the divine mossy green with beaded zebra print trim does a great job of evoking the shaded, verdant vibe. £20, uk.accessorize.com

There’s something about these pink satin jammies with their fronds and fauna that make us want to squeal ‘sleepover’! Loving the scrunchie, the revere collar and the shorter sleeve. £20, tesco.com

Almost the exact antithesis of the Versace frock; where that was vivid, this is muted. Where that revealed, this conceals – nonetheless there’s no denying its appeal. The slight puff at the shoulder, and demure high neck works well with the flippy skirt’s sedate length but the pattern is pure tropics and those mustard shades are clearly set to stay for some time to come. £38, dorothyperkins.com

National Smile Month starts on 13 May and it’s ironic, but usually a trip to the dentist isn’t too much to smile about. I guess it depends on the dentist, though. I went down to London’s Wimpole Street to meet Dr Tom Crawford Clarke of Luceo Dental to find out more about teeth whitening.
