Samantha Cameron: 'You can dress up, darling, I'll stick to the skinny jeans'

As the stylish one in this relationship, Samantha Cameron is used to setting the fashion tone.
But while she managed to keep the Prime Minister casual for their arrival at the conference on Saturday night, by yesterday he was back in his customary suit.
Mrs Cameron, however, stayed true to her own style, arriving for yesterday’s opening in Topshop skinny jeans and a cotton jersey collared top from Cos, both about 45.

She added a dash of colour with elegant red, black and nude heels from Zara, said to cost 39.99.
Sam Cam is as much a fan of
high-street brands as she is of designers such as Emilia Wickstead,
Burberry and more recently, Victoria Beckham.
Much like the Duchess of
Cambridge, when Mrs Cameron is pictured in affordable brands, the
items tend to fly off the shelves the very next day.
Far from donning the dowdy dresses and
sensible skirt suits of the typical Tory wife, Sam Cam tends to stick
with trousers as her wardrobe staple for such events.

She first started wearing the
narrow-legged, high-on-the-ankle trousers a few years ago at the
beginning of the election campaign.
And at last year’s party conference
she wore various styles of narrow legged trousers, in various colours
including orange and black – always teamed with a pair of statement
