Alexa Chung Nails Airport Style: See Her Signature Travel Staples

If we could raid anyone's wardrobe we think it'd have to be the Chungster's. We'd grab her denim dungees, her signature pineapple brooch and her sprawling collection of Mulberry totes. Alexa is the queen of Instagram and knows how to really get flashbulbs going on the FROW, but she is also an expert at dressing for long haul flights.

As an englishwoman in New York, this it-Brit is a regular at Heathrow airport, so has learnt a thing or two about what to wear when flying over the Atlantic. You'll never spot the Chung in a velour juicy tracksuit or slouchy ugg boots, but that doesn't mean she glides through terminal 5 in sky high stilettos and sleek tailoring à la Victoria Beckham.

Alexa Chung has a fail safe airport style formula. First of all, she often carries a Louis Vuitton classic wheely which looks small enough to take onto the plane so she doesn't have to be parted from those breton tees for too long. Next up she wears a good duffle coat or blazer paired with a classic pair of skinny jeans. Shoes wise, she opts for gold embroidered palm tree Penelope Chilvers Dandy Slippers - if you haven't noticed Alexa has a thing for palm trees n' pineapples.

Like a true A Lister Alexa then hides puffy, tired eyes with a pair of mahoosive, statement shades. Her fave frames? The Chung can't get enough of her Illesteva 'murdoch' tortoise shell sunnies which you can buy for £173.55.

Other winning Alexa Chung airport looks include a spotty navy playsuit with pumps, a boyfriend denim jacket and a hipster black hat. We also love the blue dungarees she wore over a sheer floral blouse and the tweed jacket n' pink shirt combo she wore to go up in the air.
