ALEXA CHUNG’S LENGTHY LUXE
She’s a bona-fide style icon, but that doesn’t mean Alexa Chung is afraid to play around with contrast and proportion to hit a fashion home-run.
- Alexa doesn’t do anything by halves, and that’s true of her
textures in this look: soft, tiered ruffles on top are shown in
contrast with some bouclé tweed down below, making each component
look strong and striking.
- How long is too
long? Varying lengths can make all the difference, as Alexa knows.
She combines a high waist with a midi-skirt, along with mid-calf
boots and longer sleeves – playful proportions that don’t overtake
- A higher waist plus a crop-top equals
the perfect amount of midriff. Adding a flash of flesh breaks up a
formal look and brings a fun edge, while staying on the demure side
- Alexa’s style is always feminine,
but dramatic accessories bring some extra intrigue – patent leather
boots and a handheld matching clutch ensure this look stands out in
- It’s the ‘do that launched a thousand haircuts – the grown-out bob that Chung favours. Here it proves it can lend a casual retro vibe to any look. There’s a reason why the soft, mid-length beachy waves have been spotted on everyone from Jane Birkin to the Olsen twins.
