Celebrity Chic: Alexa Chung


Today’s guest post by Shop Me Chic:

There are many things we adore at Shop Me Chic…fashion, beauty, children, lifestyle and – as you can tell by our name – shopping. We’ve managed to combine some of these things into a regular post that has become a firm favourite with our readers.

Celebrity Chic is a chance for us to take an outfit worn by a celebrity and translate it into real life.

We source the items similar to what the celebrity is wearing (at a more affordable price point), which can all be bought online. In fact, every item featured on Shop Me Chic can be bought online.

Today’s Celebrity Chic is British fashion It Girl, Alexa Chung.


We love Alexa’s cool, slightly kooky and edgy style. Not to mention the girl can layer! Perfect for these upcoming cooler months and the very reason we’ve chosen this particular Winter-friendly ensemble.

Here’s our take on Alexa’s outfit…


  1. Sportsgirl ‘Two Tone Bobble Knit Scarf’ (in Mustard) – $29.95 
  2. Forever New ‘120D Opaque Tights’ – $14.99 
  3. Very Very ‘Jakson Camel Coat’ from Mon Petit Chou – $399 
  4. Forever New ‘Cecily Stripe Sweater Dress’ – $79.99 
  5. Tony Bianco ‘Celebrity’ Heels – $149.95 

This particular look is perfect for the weekend and can be changed up to suit the weather (or your personal style) simply by adding a pair of leggings or skinny jeans. We adore the colour combination of navy, mustard, camel and black, which is just a little bit unexpected but looks beautiful – a bit like Alexa herself, really.

Who is your celebrity style icon?

    I love this post! And I love the outfit! I want that coat now. If I had my way I’d have a million coats.

    I love this. I want this outfit and the best part is it isn’t super dooper expensive :)

    Love the coat and the shoes!

    I have a problem shoe shopping lately due to the stacked/platformness of the majority of heels around. I’m tall and I just feel too tall when I wear super high shoes :(

    However, this week I did manage to find a great pair of black suedette flat knee high boots, black suedette heeled ankle boots with buckles, and black suedette semi-point heels. All bargains – loving life! :)

    And justified buying 3 pairs of shoes because ‘we’re coming into Winter’………….. 😉

    I have to ask: what does Alexa Chung actually DO? Is she a model, or just some kind of professional good looking person?
