Alexa Chung: Onesies rock

Alexa Chung enjoys the feeling of being “nice and secure” when wearing a onesie.

The British fashionista's favourite wardrobe item is a comfy onesie dedicated to boy band One Direction.

Alexa explained why she loves this sort of clothing the best, claiming donning a one-piece makes her feel safe.

“I have a One D onesie that I wear regularly,” she told UK magazine Company. “The other thing I wear a lot, especially on planes, is my black unitard from American Apparel. There’s something nice about being ‘closed in’ everywhere that’s very nice and secure.”

The style icon revealed the extent of her obsession with all-in-ones. She's recently purchased two designer takes on the trend for her Spring/Summer 13 wardrobe.

“I bought some Margaret Howell dungarees and some Stella McCartney dungarees - the Margaret Howell ones are navy blue canvas and the Stella McCartney are high-waisted, flared and tight,” she gushed. “Oh, and an APC pink men’s button down shirt.”

Adding to her vast collection of uni-clothing, Alexa has recently purchased a few warm weather items. The regular on the front row at fashion shows confessed that this year she hasn’t been studying the catwalk as much as usual, but has still managed to pick out a few favourite looks.

“I bought some Marni silver sandals and they’ve got a thick box heel. I find that silver shoes weirdly go with everything. And there’s this LA-based brand, Geronimo. They do really cool summer stuff like hot pants and a matching top,” she explained.

“I didn’t really get to watch any [Spring/Summer shows] because I was working, but I did take a quick look at Meadham Kirchhoff and Christopher Kane – the brain dress looked really cool. Oh and Ashley Williams – that was good.”
