Alexa Chung is one of those OG 21st century ‘It’ girls whose outfits remain etched in the back of our minds and continue to inspire us.
From her beginnings as a scouted model and her first presenting job on the UK’s Popworld in 2006 to having her own clothing line and being a fixture on glamorous red carpets like the Met Gala, Chung has lived many lives. And yet, because of our perennial infatuation with her youthful style, she’s still the ageless talent wearing socks with heels and beaten-up leather satchels in our eyes.
Even in 2023, when microtrends and TikTok aesthetics dominate our fickle moodboards, the British icon stays true to her taste. And as we’re trying to get around low-slung jeans and velvet tracksuits again, her presence will always be a welcome palette cleanser. Throughout her time on our radar, a highlight of her style has been an inimitable knack for mixing and matching. Pairing luxury pieces like vintage Chanel bags and Manolo Blahnik pumps with high-street pieces and vintage denim, to clashing prints and layering delicate florals with grungey leathers and sneakers, she’s genuinely the GOAT of contemporary ‘It’ girls.
Moreover, Chung has achieved something quite special with her fashion choices: cultivating a distinct personal style, all the while keeping us on our toes with looks that are as fun to look at as they are to imitate.
Let’s celebrate her impact by tracking some of her most iconic looks (that we’re sure you’ll remember), as well as how her style has evolved over the years. Scroll on to relive it all.
