More Reasons To Love The Stylist-Free, Thrift-Loving Alexa Chung

Alexa Chung‘s stock went up this weekend, when she admitted to the New York Times that she wants to “look like Kurt Cobain,” and doesn’t have a stylist. Calling her an “It Girl,” was, frankly, old news, but the piece also revealed our favorite pin-thin MTV VJ-gone-fashion icon will star in “Thrift America,” which will air on PBS next summer. The show will feature Chung trolling for vintage treasures at thrift stores, estate sales, and more. Raise your hand if you wish you could go along.

As an homage to the “it girl,” here are 3 trends the world might not have ever known, if not for Alexa Chung’s magic fashion want:

Vintage Lace Dresses:

Alexa’s love of vintage is palpable, she’s pulled off so many sweet, babydoll lacy dresses we want to try the look. This ModCloth Sweet, Sweet Fantasy Dress ($94.99) pretty much nails it.

Double-Breasted Navy Coats:

Alexa’s signature double-breasted, nautical coat style made it into her Alexa Chung for Madewell collection. Now, you can too own this cool borrowed-from-the-navy look; this Diana cropped jacket ($99, down from $188)



No Alexa Chung look would be complete without her signature clunky clogs. These Jeffrey Campbell Charli Black Leather ($135) are perfect.
