Alexa Chung can do no wrong in my eyes. How she manages to look effortlessly stellar all the time, I’d never begin to guess. She has a distinct je ne sais quoi that many women can only dream of having.
I guess part of Alexa’s charm is her unaffected quality. She seems unfazed by a bad hair day. She doesn’t take herself too seriously, fashion-wise, either and makes it a point to inject fun in her ensembles. She has been donning rompers and looking great in them when everyone else has been considering it tacky and juvenile.

Recently, Alexa Chung was spotted wearing an adorable gingham dress from Paul Smith Black Label. Gingham print’s popularity is massive these days but this has always been a classic and indispensable print. So expect a gingham dress like Alexa’s to still work its wonders years from now.
Alexa styled her dress with a structured blazer, Chanel crossbody purse, fringed vintage-style shoes (with socks!) and a pair of retro cat eye sunnies. It is totally vintage-inspired but works so well even if you have a more modern aesthetic.
You can get the dress at Farfetch:
Paul Smith Black Label Checked Dress, $670.84
As you can see, the dress boasts of pointed collar and a midi hem length with pleated skirt. It comes with a belt to cinch the dress in its waist. You can even put petticoat underneath the skirt to make it flare and give you a 60′s look.
And it seems like Alexa is a fan of Paul Smith because her shoes are also from the said design power house.

Now you can look vintage-chic too with this ensemble!
