Look of The Day: Tomboy Lady

After finding this photo of Alexa Chung futzing around the city with a coffee from a few years ago, I suddenly craved the casual/polished mashup that she so effortlessly displays here. And now I bring you the five easy (and affordable) pieces that can take us there.

Alexa’s perfect striped sweater is a Prada menswear style from 2017, but this one by Ines de La Fressange for Uniqlo works for me. Buy it a bit oversized so you can do the nonchalant half-tuck just like her.Classic cropped Levi’s like these have a cool old-school vibe that works perfectly with the polished shoes and slouchy sweater.

Tortoise cat-eye sunglasses make everything a little more Hollywood-glamorous.Her Chanel-y cap-toe shoes take this super low-key look someplace more spectacular.

The plain cotton tote (no doubt a swag bag from some fabulous event) is as unpretentious as you can get, and here is a very similar one.

  1. I love this look and your take on it – I think Van Eli is a sleeper brand for quality footwear if you (I) get styling tips for someone like you (or rather, just you.) I want to buy everything but I’m only going to school drop off some days!!

  2. This is fabulous tomboy chic. Even if you’re not leaving the house it’s a welcome alternative to the ubiquitous baggy sweats.
