Since she was scouted aged sixteen, Alexa Chung has become one of our favourite style icons. She has won the British Style Award an incredible four times and even has a Mulberry bag named after her- that’s what you call fashion credentials. 

As she turned thirty-one earlier this week we decided to celebrate her birthday by looking back to one of our favourite trademark Alexa looks. Well known for leopard print and casual, boyish tailoring, the presenter showcased her distinctive personal style by wearing a masculine double breasted coat with leopard print boots. She may be a regular on the FROW and also have an abundance of fashion freebies but here is how you can get her look too:


Get the look-from left: Phase Eight black jumper, Marta Jonsson leopard print ankle boots, Dorothy Perkins grey double breasted coat, Wallis black skinny jeans, Dorothy Perkins white lace shirt, Nails Inc. red lace Alexa nail polish.

These statement ankle boots look cool paired with simple wardrobe basics such as a white lace shirt,a black jumper and black skinny jeans to create the perfect casual ensemble.

Finally to pull the look together, add an andynous style coat like this Dorothy Perkins grey double breasted one. It will automatically smarten your outfit and keep you toasty over the winter months. Style maven, Alexa has also launched a new nail polish range so make sure you coat your nails with her red lace polish for a colour pop that will liven up your effortless outfit.
