Top 5 Alexa Chung Looks

Along with half the women in the UK and her ever-increasing US fanbase, I love Alexa Chung primarily for her style. Her low-key, androgynous oh-I-just-threw-this-old-thing-on, effortless chic way of dressing has gone from strength to strength since she sprung onto the screens courtesy of Popworld back in 2006. My favourite looks:

I've always liked harlequin prints, am obsessed with vintage pieces (her dress), adore Chanel (her pumps) and wear absolutely everything with black, so I loved this relaxed red carpet look.

I like mixing midnight blue or navy with black and she looks gorgeous shining in this sheeny Katy Rodriguez party dress.

Casual chic in a Marc Jacobs tee, Sonia Rykiel cardigan and H&M shorts to bring it back down for the high street crew.



With a penchant for one of my favourite designers Luella (boo hoo), Alexa channels her inner prim girly side with this gorgeous floral dress and lashings of black on the red carpet and adds her own quirky touch with a sweet Lulu Guinness (another one of my favourite designers) cat bag.



Going down the well-trodden geek chic route Alexa runs with a cool schoolgirl look in a blouse, necktie and smart, tailored blazer and toughens up her look with a rock chick pair of cutoff hotpants.


She looked fantastic in simple monochrome wearing another vintage dress with white lace and black opaques to inject some much-needed glamour on the NME Awards red carpet back in February.

She's a safe dresser; she knows what looks good on her and what styles are picked up on so invariably looks excellent, but I'd love to see her have fun and try out more experimental looks.
