Stuck in the deep dress coma that is Christmas party season? Let's think beyond the sparkle with this pic of Alexa Chung in LA. Her double denim – AKA the Texan Tuxedo – is the ideal Alka-Seltzer to the body-con hangover we're currently suffering (the mince pie don’t lie). 

The trick with double dems is to pull an Alexa: match your separates based on wash and always play with proportion. We’ve seen the Chungster working double denim before, but this time round we’re taking note of her oversized worker jacket, cropped skinnies, preppily knotted knit, pointed flats (Vivienne Westwood, duh!) bug-eye sunnies and ladylike handbag (LV, baby). So Jackie O meets 2015.
