Style Icon of the Week: Alexa Chung

Hey there fashion lovers!
I hope you all had a super duper weekend! Today I’m going to be writing the style icon of the week on the one and only Alexa Chung! Alexa Chung is an English model, tv presenter and British Vogue contributer. Known for her amazing style and bubbly personality Alexa Chung graced the covers of numerous magazines at the age of 16 – having been spotted at Reading Festival and then signed to Storm Model Management. Since then Alexa has worked for major companies (Fanta, Sony Ericsson, Urban Outfitters), walked London Fashion Week catwalks for Vivvenne Westwood and Stella McCartney and become the face of New Look, DKNY jeans, Lacoste and Superga.

I chose Alexa because of her distinctive personal style. Alexa inspires many young fashion lovers saying ‘People don’t take risks because they’re afraid something isn’t in season, but you should have fun with fashion and wear what you want’.

1. Alexa attended the Tribeca Film Festival Artist’s Dinner last Wednesday night. Trendsetter Alexa kept it simple in a monochrome sleeveless shift dress by Chanel. Choosing to wear this gorgeous dress with black ballet sandals and a little black clutch makes this outfit look chic and uber stylish!

2. If there’s a style tip you should steal from Alexa it is this one- a crisp white shirt is perfect under a summer dress. For work and play this is a major must for spring/summer 2013. Alexa looked tailored and sophisticated whilst wearing this outfit – the embellishment on the collar of the shirt adds to this fabulous outfit!

3. My last favourite of Alexa’s looks has to be this little number which she wore to Coachella 2013. When I think of Alexa Chung the first thing that comes to my head is ‘peter pan collar dresses’. Alexa pulls of this look amazingly, adding a pair of retro sunglasses to the outfit making her look stylish, chic and super quirky. This definitely has to be my favourite outfit!
