I don’t like to sound like a screaming fan—I really don’t—but I would be lying if I didn’t say that I’ve been a big fan of Alexa Chung‘s style for the last 13 years. Long before Instagram was even a twinkle in the internet’s eye and when Kim Kardashian was just another reality TV star, I was fawning over the quirky-cool stylings of young Chung in her Popworld and T4 presenter days. Over the intervening years, we’ve watched as her stardom has ascended: Chanel muse, It girl, fashion-week darling, and, of course, a fashion designer in her own right. Oh, how far we’ve come.
While the world has changed and my personal style has evolved from teen to twenty-something, Chung’s sartorial appeal is unwavering. She continues to dole out winning ensembles to a new generation of fashion lovers, and I feel like it is a testament to her taste that outfits from over six years ago still feel as fresh as ever. Looking back, there are so many looks that I would happily re-create now.
From statement trenches to pitch-perfect tailoring, I made a trip down memory lane to find the five Alexa Chung street style outfits that have stood the test of time. Scroll down to see and shop the looks.
