Archive by Alexa Chung Winter 2016 Collection Has Your Holiday Style Cravings Covered

Finally available for purchase at Marks & Spencer, Alexa Chung’s Archive by Alexa Chung winter 2016 collection is already on many fashionisas’ Christmas wish lists, as it really has our holiday style cravings covered.

Archive by Alexa Chung Winter 2016 Collection

With the first Alexa Chung x Marks & Spencer Archive collection having been an instant sellout, the British retailer couldn’t, of course, exempt itself from asking the model-turned-designer to create another holiday-ready Archive by Alexa Chung collection and we, in return, couldn’t be happier.

This time around, the style icon immersed herself into all those fashion motifs that made the Forties, Fifties, Sixties, Seventies and Eighties famous, thus focusing “on a luxe evening wear vibe to lead us into the winter party season and was thrilled to once again discover an abundance of inspiration within the Marks & Spencer archive.”

And by covering all of our holiday style needs, Chung managed to keep her creativity high by naming each one of her Archive by Alexa Chung collection’s 27 pieces after street names in Leeds, namely the city, where Marks & Spencer was founded in 1884.

Saying the collection is made of 27 pieces means that we have 27 must-haves to choose from, which is no small feat indeed (especially if you are looking for something to show off during New Year’s Eve). The Archive by Alexa Chung winter 2016 collection, however, includes also accessories, such as biker boots and winter essentials, such as fur coats, meaning that versatility is still key and that whatever you buy, you will be able to re-use it over and over again until spring arrives.

As for the purely holiday-ready garments, Chung got us overwhelmed with glitter and sequins aplenty, as she utilized such jocose patterns to embellish everything, from miniskirts to short-sleeved shirts and even slip dresses. Those who love channeling animal prints during the holiday parties can always count on Chung’s long slip dresses in zebra motifs, meant to be paired either with the collection’s biker boots or more risqué high stiletto heels.

For a more casual take on the holiday season, the Archive by Alexa Chung winter 2016 collection brings in cozy, neutral-toned jumpers, billowy silky shirts and even leather skirts, which look uncannily delicate whenever paired with any of Chung’s most elegant proposals (especially with the silky shirts with floral patterns).

Kimono jackets and long, double-breasted coats in wool complete the collection with something high-end for every occasion, which will complement any of your outfits, whether it is a more elegant or casual-chic one.

If you cannot make it to a Marks & Spencer store, the Archive by Alexa Chung winter 2016 collection is also available at marksandspencer.com.
