Alexa Chung has taken her summer adventures to the Greek island of Hydra, with a suitcase full of enviable looks in tandem. Off the back of a trip to the Italian coast, when Chung grabbed our attention with her playful take on Italian dressing, the model and designer is now gracing us with an extended lesson in European summer styling.
Alexa Chung styles a silky white mini from Anna October with ballet flats.
As temperatures spike to an all-time high, dressing for summer in mainland Europe first and foremost calls for clothes that keep you cool. In pursuit of remaining comfortable throughout the day, Chung styled a silky white minidress from Ukrainian brand Anna October with the season's favourite Miu Miu ballet flats.
Just weeks prior, she broke in her ballet flats in London, wearing them with juxtaposing leopard capri pants and an oversized white shirt, before packing them up for the Amalfi Coast and channeling balletcore with a voluminous flared dress.

As we've learnt from past summers, a light layer can be the trick to keeping you cool and comfortable throughout the day, taking it off and putting it back on as the temperature decrees. Whilst we're back home digging around for thicker layers than usual to withstand the chilly summer, under the Greek sun Alexa opted for a light knit cardigan draped over a sheer top. She styled the breezy look with a billowy white skirt from cult brand Dôen and a woven raffia basket bag from Rouje.
In holiday mode Alexa wore her signature button up thrown over a beach-side look.
Bringing a distinctly out-of-office twist to an otherwise weekday favourite, Chung styled a blue pinstriped shirt layered loosely over a crop top and high-waisted shorts, finished off with Vibi Venezia's velvet flats. These shoes are another winner where cobbled streets and cascading steps are involved.
