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.

Good Denim

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.
