This Danish Stylist Has the Best Outfit Ideas

We like to think of our favourite street style stars as a diversified Rolodex of outfit ideas. When we need something clean and minimal, we turn to Emmanuelle Alt. When we desire a look that errs on the side of femininity, we gravitate toward Jenny Walton. When we want something experimental yet relatable, Pernille Teisbaek is our girl. But even with this vast network of stylish women, adding new sources of inspiration to the mix is always welcome. The more fashion the merrier.

Our latest obsession? Alexandra Carl. She's a London-based Danish stylist whose look is at the divine intersection of '70s, British, and Parisian vibes. Think newsboy cap with a leather bomber jacket, flared jeans, and cool boots. It's everything.

Carl began her career at the ripe age of 16 and since then she has worked with notable publications like Dansk, Love, Rika, and Vogue and brands including Tom Ford, H&M, and Self-Portrait. Check out her website to see her inspiring work.

If you could use a new style crush right about now, we suggest you make it Carl. See below for our roundup of her best outfits, and shop our inspired picks to get the look.
