Fashion-sporation: Alexa Chung

By Abby Malone

If I had to pick one person to be my fashion icon, without a doubt, it would be Alexa Chung. Ever since I got my hands on a copy of her book It, I have followed her religiously. Her fashion to me is so quintessential classic but also unique; everything she wears she wears with class, confidence, and sophistication. As someone who loves a classic pair of jeans more than everything, Alexa nails it every time for me. Because of her simplicity, it makes it easy to recreate her looks. Below are a few of my favorite looks of hers.

This outfit is so simple and effortless, but yet super chic. Starting with a pair of straight leg jeans, Alexa keeps it casual with a striped sweater but also dresses it up with a pair of (Chanel, sigh) low color block heels. Also an Alexa staple? Cat eye sunglasses, of course.

This jacket though! The leopard print coat in this look says it all. Paired with skinny leather pants and a red button down, it is the perfect combination of glam but still sophisticated. To make sure the outfit got all of the attention it deserved, Alexa kept it simple with black pumps and an easy crossbody.

Probably one of my favorite outfits of hers ever, Alexa is pictured here wearing a super cute graphic sweater with an adorable patterned mini. The fun print and cute slogan along with the patent loafers pair perfectly together for a smart, yet super fun outfit. So easy to recreate as well!

Hope you enjoyed this compilation of my favorite AC looks! I don’t know about you, but now I’m inspired to go to my closet and see if I can recreate any.
