Eternal It girl Alexa Chung has been a role model for many—and for a while. Her effortlessly cool British style starts trends. People turn to her for what's new, what's hip, and what's coming next. Her vibe enviable, and luckily, totally recreatable. Let's just say you won't catch her walking down the sidewalk in 9" platforms, a billowing cape, and a headpiece. That's a whole other kind of iconic. That's power. Chung's power is subtle, refined, and applicable to the everyday. 

One weekend pouring over her street style snaps, her book, and other outlets provides enough material for anyone to Chung-ify their life. That perfect British-meets-New York vibe isn't a lofty dream. All it takes is the right flats, sophisticated casual basics, tunes, and coffee. Try it out in the gallery ahead.
