3 Trends Started by Britain’s It Girl: Alexa Chung

Alexa Chung Footwear StyleShe’s the 21st century Jane Birkin, a designer’s muse and every girls dream, she’s Alexa Chung. Rocker chic, feminine or boho, she can rock any look and make it her own. It won’t be wrong to say her style defines British fashion. Need proof? She won the British Style Award for three years in a row!

In case you didn’t known yet, here are just three of the many trends started by the hot young lady -

All About the Flats
– Alexa Chung didn’t just make flats (i.e ballets, mary janes, loafers and brogues) look fashionable, she actually made flats look fashionable for the red carpet! While the other ladies stepped out in their highest and shiniest heels, Alexa Chung wore simple black flats with her red dress at the CFDA/ Vogue Fashion Fund Awards in 2009. That’s not the only time she wore flats to the red carpet, she wears them quite often, even while attending fashion shows! Just one day back on April 24, 2013, she matched a pair of two-tone flats with her Chanel dress while attending the Chanel Tribeca Film Festival Artists Dinner.

The Peter Pan
– Alexa styled sweaters, shirts and dresses with peter-pan collars and the rest of the women population wanted one of their own. Though
the peter-pan collar has been around for a while, Alexa Chung officially owns the look. She uses them to add a touch of cutesy to her rocker chic outfits and to tone down her printzy outfits.

The Alexa
– The woman is so popular she even has a bag named after her! When Mulberry’s creative director, Emma Hill caught sight of Alexa Chung carrying an Elkington, a classic Mulberry men’s briefcase in a magazine, she loved the look so much that she decided to create a bag inspired by Alexa. The bag became a big seller and even helped the company beat the recession and rule over the accessory market.
