alexa chung. the london fashion week “it girl”


Alexa Chung has “It” ….but what is it? Something about her pencil thin legs, her bare (but always gorgeous) face and “4th grader” hair cut gives off that longed for “I just rolled out of bed but still look sexy and laid back at the same time”  look.  This is most likely why she is an It Girl to begin with; however, this isn’t entirely why she keeps my attention. Soooo many It Girls have long legs and perfect complexions yet they lack that quirk that Alexa seems to emulate. I’ve decided that the cherry on top of Alexa’s appeal is her ability to take a trend and twist it into something completely new. There are wayyy too many pictures of Alexa that I ADORE (trust me I’ve got about 500 pictures of her stored on my computer haha)…so I decided to focus on the most recent of the bunch – London Fashion Week. Here are some pictures of…well…that “it” quality I can’t get enough of!

Her pairing of a typically vampy, sexy item -leather leggings- with a classic, “school girl” staple -saddle oxfords- is brilliant. (Bass saddle oxfords were part of my uniform in high school so I have a fond connection to them : ) I loved having a uniform- seriously!)

I like these in dark brown- they are a different take on the typical black style.

Jorts- THE trend right now….but with a pea-coat and patent ankle booties? She does it again!

….I love these boots with jorts and a classic jacket because they add edge. (See by Chloe)

A biker, pilot, tribal hippy?? I love the mix of different style influences and textures. OH and the black/brown combo=perfection. Here are some lace up boots by Alexander Wang (future hubby) that I must own. (found on

Alexa’s classic looks are equally as eye catching as her more trendy ones….PERFECT example….trench + black dress + sky-high, lace-up booties.

    I couldn’t agree with you more! Alex use of different styles and textures is really brilliant and always comes off so effortlessly. Another thing I think that gives her that “It” factor is that she still seems so approachable and real, oppose to some other “IT” girls. I always get the sense that she would be a delight to have tea with and just to sit and gossip with. I don’t think she gets how pretty or hip she is, which is refreshing.
