Alexa Chung has been on a fashion roll as of late - well, when isn't she? - taking on New York Fashion Week like the pro she is with her ultra-cool and always effortlessly stylish ensembles.
Most recently, the 30-year-old writer, model and all-round fashion-inspirer has been showing some offbeat neck-candy some major love. Since she left British soil at the end of last month, Alexa's been papped rocking a chunky chain necklace non-stop at NYFW shows and parties, adding an offbeat touch to each look. From pretty dressed to embroidered blouses,
However, it looks like she's taken the edgy factor up a notch by giving the rapper-style chain a break in favour of a dog-collar style choker. Yes, really...
A staple from the punk-rock era circa the 1980's, we have to say it's an accessory trend we didn't see coming, especially from fashion's golden girl of chic dressing.
However, as Alexa proves, when paired with a ladylike get-up, it can look undoubtedly sleek.
We clocked the starlet at the Marc by Marc Jacobs S/S15 catwalk show rocking a patent pink pencil skirt loaned to her from the designer himself, her new favourite Tabitha Simmon's ankle boots and a silk printed blouse; all of which gave her black leather, buckled choker a sophisticated spin. Beaut.
No other A-lister could make us pine over a dog collar-style necklace quite like Alexa. The big question is, will you dare to rock one?
