This new denim collection will have you hooked

Lizzy Hadfield, 25, is a Manchester-based fashion blogger with an eye for smart casual – or, to use a term she’s coined, ‘smasual’. Her blog, Shot From The Street, showcases her laid-back looks with smarter tailoring, but she has another obsession: denim. From skinny to cropped, Lizzy reveals to Stylist how she styles her jeans…   

“If there’s one thing I’d be lost without, it’s denim. I wear jeans day in, day out, and have built up an impressive collection over the years. Even a pair of mid-wash jeans can be taken from day to night. Denim is easily the most versatile thing in my wardrobe. 

Smasual, Lizzy wears a pair of Next’s straight crop jeans £25, high neck top £18, double breasted jacket £55 and mules £38.00 (all items available from next.co.uk)

To be honest, I could write something rivalling the length of about how many different ways you can style denim, but thankfully I’ve found some winning combinations I rotate weekly, depending on what I’m doing. Pairing white straight leg jeans with loafers and a longline blazer is ideal for when you want to impress. I love the turn-up on these Next jeans, because it means you can also dress them down.

Skinny black jeans are probably my go-to style. Not only are they flattering on everyone; you can easily wear them for casual errand days in your favourite trainers, as well as a night out with some heels and a statement top. I like my black denim high-waisted, straight-fitting and cropped at the ankle – exactly like this Next pair.

For weather that’s warm enough to bare your ankles, I bring out the cropped trousers every time. The faded shade of Next’s cropped jeans works so well with a fun sweater and simple monochrome sneakers. 

While my love of skinny denim is obvious, even I have to admit that sometime movement can be minimal. Enter Next’s 360° jeans. They’ve got four-way stretch technology, which means not only are they ultra-skinny, they’re ultra-comfy, too. Best worn with a huge knit and a massive cup of tea in-hand.

Chilled at home, Lizzy wears Next’s 360° jean, £48 and funnel neck sweater, £28 (all available from next.co.uk)

Giving an indoor look that outdoor feel, Lizzy has styled the 360° jean, £48 with a double breasted jacket, £55, funnel neck sweater £28 and mules £38. She has finished this look with a boxy across-body bag £30 (all available from next.co.uk)
