As much as their style is inspirational and their social circles enviable, those members who make up the fashion “it” crowd don’t exactly exude relatability. Alexa Chung however, has the perfect mix of style icon meets your witty best friend. Although she’s been the face of huge fashion brands- Maje, Madewell, and Agatha to name a few- she seems completely grounded, always having a sense of humor about her success.

We love her London style where feminine meets masculine, and peter pan collars are her sartorial signature. If you want to recreate her downtown look, distressed denim and a pair of flat black boots are key. Just remember that a high waist will be your best tool to create the illusion of longer legs (unless you are already blessed with mile-long gams like Alexa!). After that, it’s all about finding the perfect mix of quirky printed blouses with edgy downtown leather jackets, and a simple long hanging necklace to tie it all together.

Here are few of our top Alexa-inspired finds to get the look:
