The uber stylish and whimsical Alexa Chung launches her collection for Madewell today. I remember getting excited about the collaboration when I read an interview Chung had done late Spring. She teased the world with tidbits of the pieces to come; chunky knits, silk, autumnal hues, overalls. I must say, she hasn’t let me down. The pieces are strong and classic in the camel coat and long silk skirt with a kick of girly nostalgia in the coverall shorts and sheer polka dot blouse. Above are some of my favorite pieces from the collection.
For part II of Date Night with Alex Grant: The Cider House Rules we have Charlize Theron’s nautically inclined wardrobe. I love the casual and masculine silhouettes that she wore, including bulky cable knit sweaters, over-sized oxford shirts and beat-up denim. I wanted to convey that genuine New England style here in this outfit by choosing the mens’ sweater from Rogues Gallery, unfitted denim and broken-in boots. But don’t forget to recreate Charlize’s soft curls, they maintain the perfect balance between a masculine outfit and a feminine face.
