Model, TV presenter and Vogue UK contributor, Alexa Chung is the definition of "hipster". Combining ladylike pieces with structured coats or edgy shoes, she effortless achieves that preppy vibe with a side dish of grunge. She is not afraid to soften a leather jacket with a pretty dress, or toughen up a plain shirt with studs or metallic jewellery. This gives her that lust-worthy androgynous look, one of the many reasons every fashion lover wants to raid her closet.

Alexa doesn't just limit her boy-meets-girl style to mixing pieces; she also does it with prints and cuts. A tartan dress in a classic, feminine shape, or an oversized, masculine top in a soft fabric has a similar effect. On occasions, she tips the scales in favour of either the tomboy or the girly, sometimes completely eradicating the opposition.

Her wardrobe staples include skinny jeans, structured coats, denim and anything vintage. In the warmer months, her outfits tend to be more feminine with a hint of grunge. In the colder months, she's known to wear a lot of patterned tights to liven up the dark colours synonymous with the season. Her taste in footwear is all-inclusive, ranging from pretty flats to combat boots.

Lessons Learnt:


Modern cross-dressing - effeminate pieces with androgynous complements or vice versa.

Experiment with contrasting cuts and fabrics.

Shop vintage; it adds an element of individuality.

An assortment of tights is always a good thing.
