Fashion Police at the Burberry Summer Party: Alexa Chung

Alexa Chung is here for her interview, readers. She’s interviewing for the junior accounts executive position, and as you can see, she’s dressed in a very office appropriate manner: neat little suit, prim, high-collared blouse, shoes which aren’t quite “sensible” – or at least, not in the heel department, anyway – but which somehow manage to create the illusion that they are. Excellent work, Miss Chung! Now, if you could just start out by bringing us some coffee and donuts, that’s a good girl…

So, yes, an outfit that wouldn’t look out of place in any reasonably conservative office in the country. Except Alexa Chung isn’t clocking in for her 9-5, she’s arriving at the Burberry Serpentine Gallery Summer Party. Maybe she could only make it in her lunch hour? Because this outfit doesn’t say “summer” or “party” so much as it says “Do you need any photocopying done before I go?” does it?

Of course, we’re ever so slightly biased here, because Alexa is doomed always to be a mystery to us but we have been seeing more and more of this office-wear-as-fashion lately, so we want to know what you think of it: innocent or guilty?

    Awwww don’t be mean about her legs! It’s the clumpy shoes that make her slim legs look even slimmer. I think she has nice legs (I would say that: they’re a bit like mine!)

    Besides that, I have to say I think she looks quite good here. I think the office look is quite nice, but then I’m a sucker for a black pencil skirt!

    I say Innocent!

    i actually like it, but not really for a summer party. i think it would work well as a mini skirt to balance out being completely covered up on top. pair it with tights and it’d be good for winter…summer, not so much. i’m hot just looking at her! (i’m in 90 degree southern california heat, though)

    Guilty as charged – take her away to the deepest darkest dungeon for her style crimes in general! (like the clutch though).
