3 Times Alexa Chung Completely Nailed Wearing White (And You Can Too)

3 Times Alexa Chung Completely Nailed Wearing White (And You Can Too)

This Summer’s white jeans trend is a bit of a terrifying prospect for many of us who have yet to take the plunge into light coloured denims.


In fact,?white, in general, can feel like a tricky one to tackle especially if you are used to hiding in black and navy. However,?with just a month left until the dreaded Autumn, now’s the time to give it a bash. When embarking on a difficult style, we need to seek inspiration from a professional, enter Alexa Chung working whites in three different and gorgeous ways.

Pared Back?

Alexa is queen of low key and we?love her simple styling of these skinny cropped white denims. The black loafers nicely anchor the look, while the Vogue slogan tee is like a cheeky fashion in-joke. We love this high street dupe of Bella Freud’s?graphic logo and these Parfois loafers are the cutest chic cheat we’ve seen of late.

Jeans, €14.99 at H&M; shoes, €14.95 at Parfois; tee shirt, €20 at Topshop

Summer Sophisticated ?

Alexa’s loosely knotted two-tone shirt?is the perfect foil for this ladylike lace white mini. Add a cross-body bag and the whole effect is pleasingly slouchy meets formal.

Skirt, €59 at Oasis; shirt, €19.95?at Mango; bag, €22.99 at New Look

Tomboy Chic

Straight leg white jeans may sound?like the hardest genre of white jean to tackle but per usual, Alexa nails it with a sharp peacoat and some simple Chelsea?boots, making this a very wearable weekend look even for those of us who don’t necessarily look like a gamine French woman.

Jeans, €19.99 at H&M; boots, €57 at Topshop; coat, €42 at River Island
