A month of award ceremonies including the Golden Globes, SAG Awards, and Grammys means our weekly list of best-dressed celebrities has seen a lot of couture gowns and frou-frou frocks. So, when the likes of Meghan Markle and Alexa Chung stepped out in uber-cool separates this week, we welcomed the sartorial change of tone.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge
Dress by Erdem
Kate Middleton’s recent visit to Sweden has seen her sport a plethora of beautifully put-together outfits, but this Erdem look is refreshingly different. The blue tone is perfect for her complexion, while drop earrings and a simple updo give a younger feel to the entire look.
Look by Adam Lippes
Rita Ora (uncharacteristically) covers up this week in cool separates by Adam Lippes. Although the look is typically styled in a sleeker way, Ora adds an urban edge with a white turtleneck and chunky gold jewelry – but still manages to look sophisticated.
Look by Alexander McQueen
Meghan Markle continues to showcase her penchant for quintessentially British labels by wearing a subtle but extremely chic Alexander McQueen suit to the Endeavour Fund Awards ceremony in London this week.
Look by ALEXACHUNG
What better poster girl could model-turned presenter-turned-fashion-designer Alexa Chung find for her eponymous label ALEXACHUNG than herself? The style muse has been spotted rocking many pieces from her brand, and this 70s-style ensemble is the perfect example of two retro separates pairing well together.
