Never one far from the fashion radar, Alexa Chung always gets it right. Her own distinctive style has made her become one of the most famous women in the world with a wardrobe to die for. With her model credentials and her fellow fashonista friends, it’s hard not to see why she’s such a style icon.
Renowned for effortless chic, Alexa Chung has the ‘laid back cool’ down to a tee, a Breton tee at that. Often credited as a designer’s muse (who doesn’t lust after a Mulberry Alexa?) and always top of the best dressed lists, she certainly knows a thing or two about fashion. Whether it’s one of her famous shirt-and-shorts combo or simply a little mini dress, Alexa’s style is relaxed, comfortable and very British; the classic London Street Style girl. Think scruffy converse, granddad jumpers and lots of denim. Despite moving to America, Alexa Chung continues to maintain her English style of ballerina flats, 1960’s silhouettes and the right dose of tom-boy.
Make like Alexa with a mini skirt (extra style points if it’s leather) and team it with an oversized jumper. Add a collared shirt underneath for that kooky vibe, and brogues or loafers to complete the look. For the indie-girl style, toughen up floral dresses and denim pinafores with Chelsea boots and a leather jacket. Always accessorize with messy hair and lived-in eyeliner. For nights out, switch dainty shoes for rock-chic heels, a slick of red lipstick and a messy top knot. Ensure your wardrobe is stocked up with denim shorts, striped tees, satchel bags and a leopard print coat.
Alexa Chung is the ultimate style icon for uni girls, showing that you don’t have to be wearing the latest trends to look super stylish and chic. An avid fan of vintage clothing, Alexa’s style is affordable as well as being effortlessly fashionable. Head to charity shops for some one-off pieces that would make her jealous, alternatively, head to Topshop, H&M and River Island for the Chung wardrobe essentials.
The perfect mix of girl-meets-boy androgyny, Alexa Chung is the cool girl next door, who’s clothes you always want to borrow.
