Alexa Chung's Heat Wave Style Really Is All That

Alexa's back—in Blighty that is. Miss Chung has relocated to the big smoke from NYC and is on the cusp of launching her highly anticipated eponymous clothing line.

But it's not all work and no fun, as the 33-year-old found time to drop in on the ever-colourful Chelsea Flower Show, just as London's glorious heat wave kicked into gear.

Perhaps not wanting to compete with the kaleidoscopic display of flowers she knew she'd no doubt be posing in front of, Alexa chose a subdued, monochromatic look that effortlessly contrasted with her floral surroundings, and she adopted a light duster coat to balance out a thigh-high midi.

Of course, having spent several summers combatting Manhattan's sweltering summers, Chung knows a thing or two about breezing through a heat wave in style.
