Alexa Chung's Accessory Is On Every It Girl's Shopping List

There are plenty of celebrities who wear the trends, but setting them is a different story. Alexa Chung is among the small circle of chic women whose style is an instant predictor of what's to come.

While Alexa's jeans, gray sweater, and black coat were all simple wardrobe staples, the hat, along with leopard-print booties added an unexpected twist. And while a cozy beret may be a little much for summer, expect this style to make a major comeback for fall.
