If there was a recipe to Alexa Chung's signature style, you can be sure there'd be a healthy serving of Annie Hall-inspiration in the mix. So who better to tap for an editorial in InStyle's April issue paying tribute to the character made famous by Diane Keaton?

"Seeing 'Annie Hall' was almost like being introduced to the Smiths or the Cure," Chung tells the glossy. 'It quickly became the basis of any ounce of taste I had." The It Girl and style star loved the way Keaton-as-Hall mixed in masculine pieces without losing a sense of femininity — a hallmark clearly visible in Chung's style today.

The accompanying editorial features Chung in several spot-on, modern interpretations of "Annie Hall" style, including an oversize Céline suit and a Gucci men's jacket, all shot against classic New York City backdrops. And proving that new EIC Laura Brown has fully committed to a 360-degree view of all InStyle content, there's a cute video to match. It's enough to make a girl want to throw out all her dresses and skirts and buy a tie. (Just me?)

InStyle's April issue hits newsstands Friday, March 17th, but if you just can't wait, you can check out Alexa Chung's editorial now on InStyle.com.
