Recreate Alexa Chung’s Effortless Summer Outfit With Pieces You Already Own

We’ll always appreciate a beautiful, show-stopping ensemble, but a great outfit doesn’t have to come with bells and whistles (hello, minimalist trend). Continually reinforcing this notion is Alexa Chung, the queen of cool who rocks quirky, colorful getups with equal ease as she does understated, off-duty looks. Her latest combo is so strikingly simple—consisting of a crew neck t-shirt, denim cutoffs, ballet flats and a western-inspired belt—yet reminds us of the perennial power of classic separates. The best part of the whole thing is you likely already own some version of what she’s wearing, and can thus recreate it in an instant—no shopping required. If high summer is leaving you lacking in the inspiration department, try Alexa’s effortless formula for a fuss-free, fail-safe look all your own.
