Full skirts and prim, pointed-toe shoes have been on heavy rotation in Alexa Chung’s repertoire for a while now, yet we never seem to tire of the tastemaker’s soignee style. At the J.W. Anderson F/W 13 show in London last month, Chung showcased another version of her modern ladylike look, this time pairing a vintage fisherman sweater with a J.W. Anderson for Topshop pleated leather skirt and Christian Louboutin bow-bedecked flats for a British-countryside-meets-Parisian-chic result. While the mix of textures adds intrigue, the soft neutral tones keep the overall look feeling polished, not prissy. Get the full scoop on why her outfit is an instant success below!
