Alexa Chung in Carven at Big British Invite Party

We Can't Get Enough of Alexa Chung's Cheeky Ladylike Look

Alexa Chung made a case for one of Spring's hottest trends — the ladylike suit — at last night's Big British Invite launch, proving that this chic pairing isn't just for the office. Just how did she manage to turn a day look into something totally evening-appropriate? It's all about styling. The It girl smartly paired her lemon-yellow Carven flared skirt and matching cutout blazer with a semisheer top for added edge, then accented her party attire with black suede pumps and a matching clutch. For a whimsical finish, Alexa topped off her look with a jeweled pineapple brooch and pretty pink lips. You, too, can try out the trend for yourself, and here's how.

  • Start off with a chic suit. Lighter, brighter hues are ideal for the season — and also keep in mind that flared skirts add an extra-youthful spin to the overall look.
  • The blouse is key. Take cues from Alexa and style your skirtsuit with a chic sheer top, or if you're looking for something more casual, try pairing your skirtsuit with a slouchy tee.
  • Have fun with accessories. We love how Alexa topped off her look with a fun brooch, but you can also add even more whimsy to your skirtsuit with a printed clutch, statement earrings, or a bold cuff.
