Today's episode of It's On With Alexa Chung featured EXTRAORDINARILY fashion-forward guests Whitney Port, Olivia Palermo, AND Christian Siriano. Um, no pressure or anything. As usual though, Alexa Chung turned up perfectly dressed, but never overly dressed, which just makes her casual-chic style all the more enviable -- and accessible. And as lovely as The City stars Whitney Port and Olivia Palmero usually look, personally I think Alexa's outfit stood out the most. Here's what Alexa wore on today's show.
Monday, June 22
+ Top: Chanel, her own.
+ Cardigan: J. Crew.
+ Jean shorts: Levi's, her own.
+ Rhinestone necklace: her own.
+ Shoes: Doc Martens.
More power to you if you can afford a Chanel top (or Chanel anything). I'd like to live where you live because clearly the recession hasn't hit you. But if you're looking for star-print alternative, check out this fun star-print tee. It's just $35 by With Mocha at YesStyle.com.
Or check out this great Sonia by Sonia Rykiel star print purple jersey dress. It's $162 at Asos.com.
Alexa's camel-colored cardigan is by J. Crew, but check out Delia's even cheaper boyfriend cardigan. It's $34.50 at Delias.com.
Also, HOLY 1992! Alexa Chung was wearing Doc Martens today! Not just regular old old-school black ones, either but metallic Docs. (Appropriately, tomorrow's musical guest is Bikini Kill! Um, just kidding. But that'd rule.) Feeling that? Get a pair of pewter metallic Doc Martens for $110 at DMUSAstore.com.
Lastly but not leastly, Alexa's chunky vintage rhinestone necklace was her own, but a quick search for vintage rhinestone necklaces by brands like Trifari on sites like RubyLane.com should net you some sparkly "Grandma-wore-this-to-prom" results.
PS: Check out these cute star-studded leather lace-up flats! They're $55 at Topshop.com.
