Trust Alexa Chung to resurrect an old-school preppy trend and make it look fresh… again. This time, the Chungster has been spotted wearing her jumper around her shoulders while she's holidaying in an undisclosed location. While this look has classic "dad" vibes about it, Alexa knows that tied around a crisp white shirt and layered on top of a pair of snazzy trousers, this styling move won't look like you're on your way to B&Q for the weekend's activities.
But of course she's a pro: This isn't the first time the fashion star has been spotted donning her sweater as such. Way back—last summer, post-Coachella 2015—we also saw that she'd been doing it. At the time she described the look as "dressing like a Hampshire mum." Well, consider us converts, as while it might still be summer, there's our office air con to contend with, not to mention the fact that the UK weather can be rather changeable. Which means that this is the perfect way to style our jumper for easy access when we're feeling the summer chill—all for free!

Style Notes: Chung on holiday this year with a simple grey jumper over a crisp white shirt.
Style Notes: At the Christopher Kane show last September, she again wore a grey jumper over the shoulders, this time over a blue shirt.
Style Notes: Way back last year, she wore a pink jumper over a lighter pink shirt. This will look amazing with a tan.
Style Notes: This time it's not over a shirt but a dress. Try this over a maxi for a summery look.
