Yesterday I was reading the Sunday Times Style magazine and was, as I always am, fairly outraged at what their idea of ‘on a shoestring’ actually means. Their ‘shoestring’ version of Alexa Chung’s Valentino outfit comes in at around £1000. Er. Yeah. That might be a cheaper alternative, but it is way beyond the financial means of most people in this country! So, might we present, our Sunday Times style on a shoestring – actually affordable alternatives for The ‘LLD’ (ladylike dress), ‘Go Minimal’ and ‘Cream Dream’. You’re welcome!
(Prices and availability are accurate at time of posting, but some of these are sale prices, so they may not stick around for long!)
1. Blazer, Red Herring, £27.50; Silver bag, New Look, £10 (same as in Style); 3. Sequin jumper, ASOS, £28.50; 4. Trousers, ASOS, £35; 5. Bracelets, £7.99 and £4.99, New Look – wear one or both – they’re buy one get one free
