Get Alexa's Style! Again!
I've removed my MTV link on my links list since Alexa's show got canceled and hence, no more outfits shots. But thanks to Vogue.co.uk's feature on Alexa's daily outfits ("Today I'm Wearing...") this whole month of February, I found a new resource!
Consider this a how-to, because she shares exactly what she's wearing. This way, you know where to go to put a similar look together. I've lovingly collected all the photos as reference, which we all can go back to in one go! Enjoy!
Ok granted that she wears Chanel and Miu Miu, most of the stuff in her closet are accessible enough! Levi's, American Apparel, Topshop, Cos, Uniqlo, Madewell, with bits and pieces of APC, CdG, Isabel Marant, and of course Mulberry thrown in. What makes her look unique is that she shops in cult boutiques like Opening Ceremony and Oak, plus she wears Bimba & Lola, Margaret Howell and LK Bennett too - Spanish and British brands respectively and therefore, not too accessible to girls not based in Europe (although Bimba & Lola has stores in Singapore and Malaysia and Margaret Howell has a store in Japan). She incorporates a lot of vintage as well, and borrows from her boyfriend's closet. She's quite traditional in some ways, favoring classic brands like Barbour and Gloverall (read about that from wikstenmade). When it comes to eyewear, she goes for the classics too - Ray Ban and Moscot.
I guess it's the mix of vintage, classic and not so mainstream pieces that make her style so Alexa. Then again, if I had her skinny long legs, I'd look good in anything too! Hahaha!
