While it's true that we wouldn't typically think to wear a minidress and fishnet stockings together, Alexa Chung just proved that it's entirely possible to make this risky look work for a night out in an effortlessly cool way. The key to success? Chung layered a long-sleeve crewneck tee under her metallic leather dress and paired it with ankle boots for a Marc Jacobs party during the recent London Fashion Week. The addition of the tee and boots, as opposed to stilettos and a bare upper body, kept the look from being over-the-top sexy and added warmth. At the House of Holland show earlier in the day, Chung topped it all off with a printed fur coat, making the outfit even more weather appropriate. Proof that oftentimes the most unexpected pairings can be the coolest ones with a few strategic sartorial tweaks.
