For every stylish gal who knows her global fashion history and style icons, the term “It Girl” immediately directs to Alexa Chung. She’s one of the OG British fashion girls who cemented her mark as an international figure in the industry. Her style has proven to be timeless–no matter what season it is, she manages to reinvent her look in a way that it’s still Alexa-esque.
Having designed with AG Jeans, Marks & Spencer, Superga, Eyeko and more, collaborations are familiar territory to Alexa. And in an awe-inspiring moment this summer, the model finally announced the release of ALEXACHUNG, her first fashion label that’s been well-received by fashion critics and enthusiasts alike.
For every girl who considers Alexa Chung as their style icon or who just needs new trendy pieces for their wardrobe, here’s a rundown of our favorite pieces from the collection:
Tiered Garden Dress
Whether she’s on the red carpet or on the streets, ruffled or tiered maxi dresses have been a staple for Alexa. This sweet floral piece is a perfect wedding look. It’s also an excellent outfit option for a summer holiday.
Navy Double Breasted Jacket
Double breadted jackets are always a great casual go-to when you feel too lazy to put together an outfit–it’s something Alexa has mastered herself. In true classic British style, it can take any look from basic to sleek.
Severed Hand Earrings
Nothing says statement-making better than severed hands that hang in your ears. This unique accessory is definitely a gem to add to your jewellery collection. Think of it as homage to the Addams Family or a nod to the quirky stylings of RuPaul’s Drag Race queen, Katya Zamolodchikova.
If you need a boost of height without killing your feet, mid-heel mules are your best bet.
Pink & Burgundy Pinstripe Co-Ords
These co-ords proved to be an eye-catching pair at the label’s presentation, and it’s becoming the most popular from Alexa’s line. Wearing these would definitely be quite the sartorial assertion.
Zip Front Dungarees
Dungarees have been a favorite of Alexa’s since the beginning of her reign as the British It Girl. Now, it’s making a comeback as an easy, stylish workwear piece that’s both wearable and versatile.
