If we had to crown one It girl as the queen of cool basics, we'd go with Alexa Chung. While her signature look tends to center on simple pieces—vintage jeans, sneakers, sweaters, ballet flats—she always manages to give them a fashionable twist. Just take one glance at her latest off-duty ensemble, and you'll see what we mean.
While simple black leggings and an oversize sweatshirt may not scream "fashion," Alexa's trendy accessories transform these ubiquitous picks. From her cat-eye Gucci sunglasses to the netted Staud bag and her Chanel sneakers, Alexa takes the accessories on every fashion girl's wish list, and she puts them together to create an outfit that while trendy, never feels like it's trying too hard. If we were left to design our ideal off-duty look, we're sure it would look something like this.
