The "Boring" Fashion Staple Fashion Editors Can't Live Without

Alexa Chung has been quite vocal about her love of a simple crew-neck navy blue jumper. This is apparently the thing she buys the most and therefore has been wearing for decades. A navy jumper might sound a little boring, but it's an easy way to make any outfit look a little more Alexa (which should also be read as timeless, classic or enviably stylish). She knots them around her shoulders, wears them over her most fabulous dresses to fashion week and even puts them on in the height of summer in NYC.

Chung tends to opt for a slightly oversized crew-neck menswear silhouette in a dark shade of navy. However, she's been known to wear cable knits too. We imagine the collection is extensive enough to contain many iterations. Keep scrolling to see how Alexa Chung styles her go-to sweaters…
