To tell you the truth, I’m not 100% clear on how Alexa Chung became the much-adored It Girl she is today. I guess that’s the thing with It Girls, though; they have a special magic to them that renders obsolete the linear, logical paths that most of us take to success. Alexa started out as a model in London, and her charisma quickly propelled her onto television as a presenter and host. From there, the fashion community started to take note of her quirky personal style, which somehow manages to combine sweet femininity with a tomboyish take on menswear.
Alexa’s been the industry’s hipster darling ever since, and it’s even qualified her to have an It Bag named in her honor – the Mulberry Alexa, of course. Even though I don’t always understand her outfits (in particular, I find her penchant for denim overalls confounding), on the whole, she’s a great source of casual style inspiration and nontraditional night-out looks. Naturally, that qualifies her for one of our patented peeks inside of her accessories closet. To peep Alexa’s collection, join us in the slideshow below.
