Style is personal, but we all have that one person whose style we constantly strive to emulate. For me, if you haven’t gathered from my incessant references to her, is style goddess Alexa Chung. Her effortless cool vibes embody all of my goals — not exaggerating in the least.
Of course, it can be difficult to channel a celebrity’s style if you don’t have their designers and stylists on speed-dial. I’m here to tell you, though… it can be done. It may take some work, yes, but it is not impossible. Like thrifting, you need patience and the Internet (best invention, amirite?).
To get you started… let us help you add some new additions to your closet fit for three of the most stylish girls of the moment.
You knew this one was coming, right? Alexa Chung rose to fame mixing vintage and designer pieces several years ago. Since then, she’s gone on to model, host several television shows, write a bestseller (“It” by Alexa Chung) and design collections for AG Jeans and Madewell. Oh, and did we mention she’s also a contributing editor of British Vogue? With credentials like these, Chung is certainly at the top of her style game.

As Tina Fey and Amy Poehler said at the Golden Globes several weeks ago, “Amal is a human rights lawyer who worked on the Enron case, was an advisor to Kofi Annan regarding Syria and was selected for a three person U.N. commission investigating rules of war violations in the Gaza Strip.” In other words, she’s not only brilliant, but also, she happens to be married to George Clooney AND have killer style. Anyone else jealous?
Recreate her look (kind of): Thakoon metallic oxfords, Pedro Garcia oxfords, DKNY appliqué shift dress, Miu Miu handbag, Michael Kors black bucket bag, Reed Krakoff bag, Isabel Marant black glossed-leather ankle boots, Azzedine Alaia flame detailed leather ankle boots, Proenza Schouler jeans in grey & MIH low-rise skinny jeans
Legs for days is all I have to say about beauty Hanneli Mustaparta. With a resume that reads model, photographer, stylist and fashion blogger, Hanneli travels from fashion capital to fashion capital in the most stylish way possible. To emulate her style, go for casual outfits with a dash of glam.
