Alexa Chung is a street style expert, and her recent ensemble consisting of a Paul Smith checkered shirt dress and black leather fringe booties was no exception. There’s an element of “school girl gone alternative” with this particular look, and we’re loving it. The pairing makes for the perfect outfit for any occasion that may come up during the next few months. It’s quirky and cool enough for a fun night out while also being appropriately conservative and chic for a more proper affair. The versatility of a classic belted button-down frock (with the Alexa Chung signature peter pan collar) makes for an easy transition from day to night—just lose the socks and add a trendy jacket for your evening affair. Chung’s silk blend dress design may break the bank, but our similar find is available for significantly less. Snag it and the rest of the celeb-status style below.
