Alexa Chung is a bona fide style icon and a designer in her own right, having started her eponymous fashion line earlier this summer, so on this week’s episode of Dirty Laundry, InStyle’s Editor-in-Chief Laura Brown asked the Brit to dish on the clothing and accessories that have a special place in her heart.

First up, Chung brought out a gray Prada sweater with green stripes that she actually picked up in the men’s section. “I think I was killing time between meetings and I got lured into the Prada store, and I just felt like I couldn’t leave without it. Sometimes I have this thing with clothes where it’s so meant to be that it’s almost boring to buy it. It was expensive but I have worn it enough to justify the cost,” she told Brown.

“I only bought it maybe two or three months ago, but I’ve literally worn it enough for a lifetime,” she added, having paired it with jeans, draped it over a coat, and even topped off a leather mini skirt for a night out with the chunky knit.

SHOW TRANSCRIPT

[BLANK_AUDIO] Show me your dirty laundry, which may be, in fact, actually dirty. No, it's filthy. It does smell bad. Right. We'll do a sniff test, okay? Mommy! Is this from Prada? That's from Prada Men's. I bought it in the Men's section. How long ago? I only bought it maybe two or three months ago but I've literally worn it enough for a lifetime. Why did you buy this? I bought this because I was in London, I think I was killing time between meetings, [CROSSTALK] and I got lured into the Prada store. And I don't know, I just felt like I couldn't leave without it. Sometimes I have this thing with clothes, where. It's so meant to be that it's almost boring to buy it. It's like buying socks or something. You're just like yes it's right. Yeah. It was expensive but I have one left to sort of justify the cost of it. Look. It makes me happy just you draping it on me. It's adorable.
