Alexa Chung has collaborated with Marks & Spencer to create her wondrous 'Archive by Alexa' collection*, featuring handpicked revamped pieces from M&S' archive itself. Alexa Chung is one of my style icons and when I heard about this collaboration, I knew it'd be a winner. She never fails to put her name behind respected brands and no better brand exists than Marks & Spencer - it suits her quintessentially British, classic-yet-quirky style and it'll no doubt sell out within weeks.
I picked up the black 'Olive' slip dress the week of the launch itself. It's the perfect ode to 90's grunge and is an ideal piece that you can dress up or down a million to one different ways. I styled the slip with layered with a basic white tee, my vintage waist belt, an oversized leather biker and my favourite boots. I tend to dress down anything girlie, to grunge it up and add my own flair to it.
The collection is full of classics and truly 'Alexa' styles: they can all be worn and styled to fit a variety of ages, sizes and personal tastes. I've selected my top picks from the collection below:
