and how to get them for yourself

The concept of the It Girl may be abstract, but since she first emerged in the late '20s (Clara Bow, anyone?), she has always made us want to put our best fashion foot forward.

Nowadays, there are a ton of It Girls who inspire us with their effortless attitudes and super-cool styles. The best part? There's no one way to be the coolest girl in town—every It Girl is different, and that's why we love them. In that spirit, we rounded up six different It Girl looks and made them completely shoppable. Click through the gallery to check them out and join the ranks as your group's resident QT.

Alexa Chung

Whether it’s shopping around in New York or sitting front row at a fashion week, Alexa Chung makes getting dressed look effortless—and who doesn’t want that “I just woke up and I’m fabulous” look?  We love her striped sweater and denim skirt ensemble here because it’ll keep you warm and give you that vintage feel wherever you go. When it’s seriously cold, just add tights and you’re ready to go. With an outfit like this, you can head off to a rock concert or take a time machine back to 1969.
