Style Crush: Alexa Chung

Alexa Chung is the quintessential fashion It-girl and it’s easy to see why... Alexa’s style is always on trend and stylish whether she’s wearing Burberry or Topshop. Alexa’s wardrobe is a fabulous mix of high end, high street and vintage. She’s also responsible for starting trends on her own; thanks to Alexa we are all wearing Peter Pan collars, Breton stripes, brogues (hurray for flats) and even dungarees. Yes, Alexa Chung is a driving force in the fashion world. Her effortless street style and her gorgeously quirky nighttime looks make Alexa a fashion inspiration. She really is an ultimate style crush…

I love September because I love Fashion Week. Alexa Chung is constantly on the FROW at all the Fashion Weeks from NYC to Paris. So, her style is especially fabulous during Fashion Week. I love this outfit that Alexa wore to the Marc by Marc Jacobs SS15 show at NYFW. Styling a monochrome polka dot shirt with pale-pink PVC skirt and strappy sandals is definitely inspired. This look is perfect for Fashion Week and Alexa looks gorgeous (as usual). I predict that we will all be wearing polka dot print come springtime. 

Okay, I’m about to make a bold statement: this could possibly be my favourite look of 2014. Yes, it’s that good. Chanel + Alexa = a match made in fashion heaven and this outfit is definitely heavenly. The high-waisted golden tweed skirt is stunning and I love how Alexa styles this with a boho-style cream ruffled crop top. Also, you’ve got to love those gorgeous patent leather boots and Chanel clutch. This outfit is everything.

If there was ever an outfit that perfectly epitomises Alexa’s style then it would be this one. This is such an Alexa look and (of course) it’s oh so beautiful. Alexa and I could totally be style twins (if only) because we both love a collared white shirt. Seriously, it’s probably one of the most important items in my wardrobe. It’s a must-have. These navy scalloped-hem shorts are so Alexa and they are gorgeous. This whole outfit is so on point and timelessly stylish. 

Only Alexa could make everyday street style so stylish.  Alexa knows that simple is often best.  A black leather jacket, black jeans and boots are a classic combination. Alexa’s fedora really makes this outfit: I love the colour. This outfit is perfect for autumn and what I love about Alexa’s style is that it can be easily replicated using high street stores. 

Airport chic is not a problem for Alexa as she shows us how to style both designer and high street. Okay, so naturally Alexa looks incredible in oversized dungarees and she really has made the case for the revival of this 90s trend. The iconic Burberry trench (forever lusting after one) helps add that high end quality to the whole look.

Alexa loves stripes and stripes love Alexa. We really do have Alexa to thank for the revival of nautical stripes. She really shows just how stylish this print can be. Again, this look is perfect for those days when you want to be casual and still fashionable. This look is simply stunning and would be perfect for uni/college.

Alexa is also the queen of the high street and it’s no secret that (just like the rest of us) she’s a fan of Topshop. The look she wore to the Topshop Unique SS15 LFW show really showcases just how fabulous Topshop can be. The lemon turtleneck is from next season Topshop and the leopard print skirt is from this season. Alexa really is a Topshop girl and I love the whole look (how cute are her pigtails- yep Alexa may have brought the pigtail back in fashion). Of course, the adorable Chanel milk-carton handbag is an optional extra that definitely won’t be appearing in a Topshop anytime soon! 

Do you love Alexa's style?
