It Brit Alexa Chung has rarely (exception: see below) made a misstep when it comes to her finely-tuned fashion sense. And because we can’t shop her actual closet, keeping up with her wardrobe preferences and style habits is the next best thing.
This past week, Chung sat down with Man Repeller’s Leandra Medine as part of the blogger’s Oh Boy podcast series. When she wasn’t dishing on dreams she can’t remember, social media, #squadgoals, and her new app Villoid, Chung shared her thoughts on trend-setting and finding her fashion footing.
She recalled, “When I first started doing television in England, I think other countries didn’t necessarily know I was on TV and they just thought I was someone who wore outfits, which was fine and nice. And then I started getting invited to fashion shows and it seemed like I could do no wrong in terms of what I was wearing. So I got really, like, bigheaded and thought, you know what, I can start trends. This can happen. So then I started experimenting a bit more and the cycling shorts was the moment I realized that’s not what was going on at all… Everyone was like, ‘What the fuck are you doing?!’ and I was like, aww shit.”
