As the fashion Director of Stylist Magazine, Alexandra Fullerton certainly knows a thing or two about denim.  The Destination Denim celebrations are in full swing at Selfridges and Alexandra joined Selfridges London store for a live styling session with her pick of the season’s must-have jeans. Alexandra talks through six red-hot looks for AW12, modelled by the impossibly long-legged Abby. If we looked like this in a pair of jeans, we’d probably sleep in them…Shop new in jeans now >

J Brand’s felted, brocade print jeans are denim’s answer to the dark romance mood that ruled the AW12 catwalks from Gucci to Givenchy. This sleek look proves that jeans are a definite ‘do’ for work, teamed with a crisp white shirt and iPad case.”

“One of the most exciting finishes that have appeared this season is metallics. These new and exclusive liquid metallics from 7 For All Mankind, in bronze, deep purple, black and forest, are so sleek. I love them for cocktails with a neat tweedy jacket and clutch for a completely polished look, totally reversing the perception of jeans as scruffy.”

“I’m a big believer in building up a wardrobe of styles. The dark skinny is essential but so is a pale washed straight cut, rolled up, for the weekend. Mother is a California label – it’s where all the best jean brands come from. Wear with a luxe tee and satchel for instant off-duty style.”

“The ‘more is more’ baroque look is all about flowers, jewels, lace and opulence and was seen at Dolce & Gabbana, Balmain and Valentino on the AW12 catwalks. These Goldsign jeans, with a stunning floral print and silver wash, are a distillation of this fabulous trend.”

“Washes and prints have blown up this year but fabrics are important too. Leather, suede and these cords have made sure that denim remains relevant and appropriate for any occasion. I love these floral Rag & Bone ankle-grazers with a neat jacket for lunch with friends at the weekend.”

“The Hudson Leeloo, exclusive to Selfridges, has a slick tuxedo stripe that elongates your leg. When you find a cut and brand you like, you want to incorporate it into every part of your life and a more trouser-cut jean is very important at the moment. You can team these with a sequin top and bright clutch for a show-stopping party look but they are equally chic with a blazer.”
