When Alexa Chung first started being photographed in 2006, she almost instantly changed the way we dressed. Over a decade (and many pea jackets, navy sweaters, thigh-skimming dresses, ballet flats and denim cutoffs) later, she is still one of the most copied style icons on the planet. There’s a reason she’s won the British Fashion Awards Style Icon Award three times (and counting).
Alexa has managed to turn her innate style into a business, of course, with sellout clothing collections for AG Jeans and Marks and Spencer, and in 2016, she launched her very own label called AlexaChung. All the pieces were exactly what we imagined she’d wear herself, from pinafore denim dresses to pretty collared shirts—meaning we’ve never had such a clear-cut chance of paying homage to the style setter.
While we’ve had hardly any red carpet events to get excited about Alexa has still managed to give us some great fashion moments via Instagram. Unsurprisingly, pretty much all of Alexa’s best outfits from recent months are exactly what we’d like to wear right now. So keep scrolling to see the five 2021 outfits of Alexa’s that will be inspiring our wardrobes this year and then keep going to see some of Alexa’s biggest style hits.
