Dreamy Denim with Alexandra Stedman
You may remember that we asked the lovely Alexandra Stedman, from The Frugality, to give us a sneak-peek into her crazy stylist’s life for LFW. Now she’s back with some expert tips on how to style the ultimate wardrobe go-to: denim! Denim is a key player, season after season, but each time there’s a twist in the tale. Alex has styled three gorgeous looks for us, and each is perfect for a spring shoestring budget- starting at £13!
The Frugality is our kind of blog: think saving the pennies for your true love (fashion of course), and not getting bogged down by the bills! Of course, at Primark you get the best of both worlds: in this case, we’ve got denim for days at tempting prices. And, with Alex’s help, we’ve got some tips to keep your denim wardrobe feeling fresh.
Up first - the perfect outfit for a smart-casual dinner with the girls: a comfy white jumper, and our on-point, white, ripped jeans. We love the casual but clean-cut image Alex is rocking here. Mixed with some black heels and a belt, the mono look is complete!
Blue round pocket flare jeans £15
And when the weekend finally rolls around? Well, look no further than this spring’s super-popular retro trend. A suedette jacket and raglan T-shirt are just asking to be paired with some nod-to-the-70s flared blue jeans. You'll find them in our Summer Camp trend report, and they're a key item in the 2016 denim wardrobe. We love the rounded pockets and relaxed silhouette. Pack a picnic, catch an old movie and embrace that nostalgia.
Blue ripped ankle jeans £13
Alex spends her time meeting with PRs, editors, clients...you name it! And that’s before she travels the world, curates editorials, snaps street style, and runs her blog! With such a jam-packed schedule every day, there have to be some easy-to-style looks in Alex’s repertoire. Our blue cropped jeans with ripped hems keep some up-to-date detail on a classic look.
Alex has teamed her jeans with a grey marl blazer and black cross body bag to dress them up, making them ideal for some casual business meetings or photo shoots. Here's your proof of denim's versatility: you've got work and leisure covered! And if you're feeling inspired by Alex's styling talent, check out our Day In The Life with her here.
There you go: three ways with classic denim pieces. Just a few keys looks can carry your wardrobe through different occasions, as well as the transition from spring to summer. Come celebrate the denim love with us in store!
