    Style Inspiration: Alexa Chung

    It is no secret that Alexa Chung has amazing casual chic style and has even been called Fashion's latest "It" Girl.  Alexa has designed pieces for Madewell and the luxe British handbag company Mulberry has named a $1,150 buffalo-leather bag after her.  This 27 year model, fashion designer, and TV personality in Britain, will now be taking her casual and chic style to PBS to host a US TV show called "Thrift in America." This show is set to air next summer and Alexa will take consumers into thrift stores, consignment stores, and garage sales to find good deals and treasures.

    If you are interested in reading more about Alexa Chung and her new TV adventure check out this recent article on Alexa Chung in the NY Times.  In this article Alexa discusses her style and inspiration and says "all of my beauty icons are men" and "it's all about effortlessness. It's all about looking undone."

    Here is a peek at some of Alexa Chung's best looks.  Which one is your favorite look?

    She's one of those people who's both beautiful and adorable! I love her style especially whenever she wears striped t-shirts -- I also love her blue dress pictured above.

    Come on over and enter my GIVEAWAY!!

    She is so beautiful. My favorite look is the one w/ the black tights! xo

    it's hard to pick just one. she really is amazing. one of the few instances where all the hype is actually worthy?

    have to say i do love that blue dress (i'm smitten with color) and of course the stripes with the skinnies and flats.

    I love the stripe and skinny jeans but I'm also in love with the #6.

    I LOVE Alexa, but I do find it mildly humorous/ironic that her show will be about thrift in America, when she rocks all the best designer duds! Either way, she kills it every time.

    What a style icon!

    She has such great style, and it's totally age-appropriate! More women her age need to follow in her foot steps! :)

    I love the look with the black blazer and black tights, and the bottom one with the trench coat and black buttons.

    Thank you for sharing her upcoming show. I had not yet heard about it and will DEF. dvr it when it comes out... Thrifting is another area that I want to master:).
