If I could swap bodies with anyone in the world it would be Alexa Chung. She is goals. Full stop. Chung has always been one of my favourite style icons for some time, from her fringed lob cut, to her au natural make up looks, to her designer wardrobe.
Chung first came into the limelight at the tender age of just 16-years-0ld when she was scouted by London-based Storm Model Management after being seen at Reading Festival, and from there, her career as a model, fashion designer, presenter and magazine editor has flourished. Now the 33-year-old is renowned for her trademark cool, chic, sophisticated aesthetic, and is a leading icon when it comes to street style; striking the perfect balance between high-end and high street, and vintage and modern picks.
Her signature look: 70’s bangs and shoulder length hair
The ‘Alexa Chung‘ is one of the most requested haircuts of the 21st century. The cut consists of shoulder/mid length brown hair, a full fringe and a hint of caramel highlight. (If bangs suited me, I would go right down to the hairdressers and ask them for an ‘Alexa Chung’ cut straight away.) The evolution of Chung’s hair hasn’t changed much from the beginning of her high-profile career, and if anything, it’s somehow got even more envious – if that’s even possible?

Alexa’s street style game is always on point
Whatever Alexa wears she can pull off. Whether it’s a complete mismatch of colours or prints, she still looks effortlessly beautiful and chic. Here are some of my favourite looks of hers from over the last few years:
P.S: Rumour has it that Alexa is bringing out her very own clothing collection in May this year (reference), branded ‘AlexaChung‘. This was first announced last year, although nothing has been mentioned about it since September 2016. Keep your eyes pealed!
