Leather trenchcoat

Year after year, the elegant trench coats are back as soon as the first leaves start to fall. But Alexa Chung wears a trench with a twist. Instead of the usual waterproof gabardine, her trenchcoat comes in leather, which gives it a glossy finish and a more contemporary feel. With this outwear, Chung ticks two of the Fall trends that emerged from the streets of Copenhagen Fashion Week; leather and trench coats.

Shirt and tailored pants

This is the Fall of minimalism and simplicity. In this way, Alexa Chung has create a power duo for the season 2020. The stylish presenter of Next in Fashion likes her shirts buttoned-up, and she wears them with tailored pants.
