I think we can all agree that at one point or another, we have all wanted to be Alexa Chung. From her gorgeous hair and bone structure to her fabulous career, she’s definitely an inspiration of mine. While I can’t help you magically transform yourself into this lovely Brit, I can help you imitate her expensive style for a lot less!
Alexa has an incredibly versatile and unique look, and as spring is finally beginning to show itself here in the Chi, I think we’re all itching to shop for a new, fresh wardrobe (my kind of spring cleaning!) These two looks are perfect for our windy city, as it’s unfortunately still a little too cold for short sleeves, but just warm enough to bare some skin.
Spring is one of the most exciting seasons for me because I finally get to bring color back into my life!
Essential Watercolor Shorts $15.80
Get your money’s worth for your winter clothes and don’t pack them away quite yet! Alexa’s look here is perfect for transitioning some of your darker fall and winter pieces into spring.
Coincidence & Chance Knit Circle Mini Skirt $49
ASOS MATCH Leather Brogues $74.81
Collared Floral Print Pullover $19.80
If you’re feeling daring, the spring is a great time to try out a fresh new hairstyle! Chop off that long hair and go for something updated and chic that will keep you cool in the warm weather. Get Alexa’s look by asking for collarbone length with long
layers and a full fringe/bang. Add some mousse before blowdrying, rough it up a bit with some texturizing gel and you’re ready to rock Alexa’s famous locks!
