Looking like a modern day Jane Birkin in her ‘60s mini, silky shirt and shades, Alexa Chung flaunted her style icon credentials to full effect while out and about in New York today. Back across the pond after working the FROW’s at London Fashion Week, Alexa gave us a masterclass in off-but-still-on duty dressing.
In theory, the mix of a brown, grey and black so shouldn’t work, but Miss Chung manages to make it look like the chicest thing this side of a Chanel catwalk by sticking to simple separates and minimal accessories, though we love the unexpected addition of a floral clutch. Note the co-ordinating grey petals – Alexa doesn’t miss a style trick. We can’t wait to see what she pulls out of the bag for Paris Fashion Week. GG
