The 21 Steps to Dressing Just Like Alexa Chung
When Alexa Chung first started being photographed in 2006, she almost instantly changed the way we dressed. A decade (and many pea coats, navy sweaters, thigh-skimming dresses, ballet flats and denim cutoffs) later, she is still one of the most copied style icons on the planet. There is a reason she has won the British Fashion Awards Style Icon Award three times (and counting).
Alexa has managed to turn her innate style into a business, of course, with sellout clothing collections for AG Jeans and Marks & Spencer, and this year she launched her very own label Alexachung. All the pieces in the first collection were exactly what we imagined she'd wear herself—meaning we've never had such a clear-cut chance of paying homage to the style setter.
