Vintage Picks No. 3 // Inspired by Alexa Chung

vintage-clothing-alexa-chung-style60s meets 70s meets now

When it comes to modern day style inspirations, I always find myself referencing Alexa Chung, and I think her style is especially interesting to those of us who like to incorporate vintage into our closets. Alexa’s style is an eclectic mix of 60s mod, 70s cool-girl, and current trends. I often turn to her recently photographed looks for outfit inspiration, particularly in the fall and winter months.

Key elements of her outfits? Vintage-inspired blouses, a-line skirts, oversized outerwear, and quirky pieces that don’t take themselves too seriously. Today I’ve collected a mixture of casual and dressy vintage items from kick-flare jeans, to stripey sweaters, to the perfect 1960s mod dress.

Hairspiration: Alexa Chung

I’ve been wanting to change up my hairstyle, and after browsing Pinterest for ideas, I’ve become a bit smitten with Alexa Chung’s gorgeous locks.

I want to keep my bangs, but loose some length, and I love how she rocks shorter choppy shoulder length hair, but still has a fringe. I also love her voluminous beach waves. It’s the perfect undone hairstyle.

I’m pretty much convinced I’m going to get my hair cut like her. We shall see.

Also, let’s talk about her makeup for a minute. I love how simple but effective her look is. Pink cheeks and lips, and flick of black eyeliner. It’s classic and gorgeous.
