It is often said that there is style in simplicity. And nothing epitomises that more than when someone puts together an outfit consisting solely of timeless wardrobe staples yet somehow manages to make it look modern and contemporary. Alexa Chung did just that recently, proving there's no reason your favourite autumn outfits have to be overly complicated.
Chung uploaded an image of herself to Instagram wearing a camel cardigan and straight-leg blue jeans paired with black ballet flats, all of which are items that likely already live in the closets of women everywhere, meaning this look could very easily be emulated.
While each component of her outfit is a wardrobe staple in its own right, here, the look maintains its timelessness due to the classic colour palette. Camel, black and denim are hallmarks of every autumn colour palette, returning as key shades year after year. There's no reason a perfect autumnal look needs to be showy or over-the-top, and here, Chung proves just that. Keep scrolling to see her outfit formula, and shop the look below.
