Chung is so good at pulling it off that she's practically got it down to a science. And, because we spend way more time than we'd like to admit scoping out pics of her latest outfits, we've figured it out too.
Meet the Alexa Chung Essentials: All you need is a button-down shirt, a not-too-fitted blazer, a '60s-esque sheath, a pair of flat loafers, and a cross-body bag. Mix and match, pair with your own personal faves--Chung tends to go with not-too-short shorts or trousers--and you've got a wardrobe rotation worthy of an It Girl.
Click through the gallery to see our favorite examples of the Alexa Chung Essentials in action, plus our picks for re-creating the look yourself. It's on, indeed.
