If there’s someone out there I want to be like, it’s Alexa Chung. Since I remember watching It’s On with Alexa Chung on MTV, she became one of those people I sort of looked up to. (I have a hard time looking up to people but that’s a whole different topic) Alexa was the one celebrity I saw that I feel I could relate to. She’s chill and had a unique style, which made me want to imitate. Here’s how to dress like Alexa Chung.
Keep it Simple
One of the reasons I love Alexa Chung is because her style is easy to recreate. She wears simple pieces to create good outfits. Even in red carpets, her dresses are beautiful but simple. She’s a good guide to not be over the top. Get good neutral pieces and style them together. This helps to create many different outfits but not have too many things.
I never realized the need for good denim until I had good denim. From Alexa’s book It, she mentioned how she a pair of shorts (hot pants) that she keeps in her bag to prevent them from getting lost in travel. Sounds crazy but I get it. Once I got my favorite pair of pants, I do everything to protect them. Alexa wears a lot of denim. From dresses to jackets, get some good denim. It works and looks really cool yet relaxed.
Have a Leather Jacket on Hand
The easiest way to get the Alexa look is with a leather jacket. Leather jackets are just cool. You can easily dress them up or down. Wear them with your denim pants or over a dress. There is a reason she has them in her closet. Leather jackets are a classic.
Here Other Things
For footwear, flats and boots are what you need. Again, this is why I love her style because it’s simple. She’s also been seen in flowy long dresses, which are super fun to wear. Other things she wears a lot are pantsuits. So I good blazer can be easy to throw on. Her style is definitely classic and that’s why it works.
Who is your style icon? Are you a fan of Alexa like I am?
