Channel Alexa And Get Your Summer Suede On

You may have seen Alexa Chung and BFF Poppy Delevingne’s recent fabulous road trip, resulting in some gorgeous pictures published in Net-A-porter’s The Edit. But we also had a sneak peek into their fashionable frolics a while back when the two trendsetters posted bikini shots and goofy videos to Instagram, just to make us all jealous.

In one of the pics, Alexa is rocking an amazing Valentino suede cape, posing up a storm in the desert. We’ve since noticed an entire style tribe sporting summer separates in the soft material – who can forget that tan Ermanno Scervino dress that Kim K wore a couple of weeks ago?

Not only have we found a show-stopping tribute to Alexa’s Valentino number from Sister Jane at Topshop to help you nail her desert chic, we’ve also come across some other must-have suede staples. They include Asos’s grey shift – perfect for all your summer soirées, it will also take you through to winter with added tights/boots/layers. The key is to add wearable pieces into your wardrobe, and break up the look with basics like a white shirt, vest top or gladiator sandals.
