Alexa Chung Style Hacks

A new series on my blog will feature style tips and trends that I think will help you emulate a key past or present figure in fashion; I am no expert just a big lover and consumer of fashion,

Today I have decided to discuss the ever beautiful and enviable Alexa Chung; as a British golden girl and the namesake of a Mulberry bag she runs rings around the fashion’s elite and always looks put together whilst maintaining her unique cool-girl look,

She was also one of the first people to debut ombre hair which triggered thousands of young girls around the world to try at an at home dye job with varying results.

Clothes are about manipulations: how I feel, how I want to feel and how I want others to feel about me – Alexa Chung

Style Tips

  • Buy a pair of overalls and wear them in an unexpected way; over a dress or with heels for a night out
  • Dress with a tomboy flair; Chung credits Jane Birkin as a big influence and uses her films for style inspiration
  • Invest in some structured pieces; sure Alexa can rock a loose tee but she also knows the power of a gorgeous fitted dress or cigarette pants on her petite frame
  • Peter pan collars; I’m not sure if you have noticed or not but the girl loves to sport a grungy knit with a little pan collar peeking out or a peter pan shirt styled with a denim a- line skirt and patterned tights
  • Wear a big coat, trench or cardigan over the top of feminine pieces to dial back the girliness factor
  • Waistcoats can look sexy, ladylike and unexpected when worn alone with trousers or culottes
  • Pair slogan tees and sweatshirts with a sparkly or velvet skirt for an unexpected look
  • Play up your waist with high waisted midi skirts and crop tops
  • Raid your dad or boyfriends closet for oversized sweaters, cardigans, and grandpa shirts
  • Dress for wet weather in colorful wellies and rain boots
  • If your outfit is feeling boring consider adding in a metallic edge via a clutch or boots
