Summer is within touching distance, and fashion royalty Alexa Chung has wasted no time in getting her holiday 'fits in order.

The 40-year-old recently enjoyed a pre-summer getaway to the Maldives, and aside from the customary trip envy, we also had our eye on her chic packing list.

The model and Mary & George & Me presenter brought her holiday style A-game, bringing her signature offbeat charm to the luxury destination.

In a series of stylish snaps shared on Instagram with her 6.3m followers, Alexa offered a glimpse into her out-of-office outfit repertoire.

Magenta spaghetti strap numbers, frill-lined cardis and gold mules all made the cut, but the piece that stood out above all the rest was a sheer, utterly dreamy mint maxi.

Draped against a wooden staircase during golden hour, Alexa showed off the dress in all its ethereal, floaty glory.

Her sheer dress featured short puff sleeves, lace trims and a whimsical peach-hued flower focal point – a fitting nod to SS24's ubiquitous 3D floral trend.

The piece had a distinctly romantic feel, and while Alexa didn't specify the exact brand name, it had an airy, slightly retro prettiness about it, owing to the lace and sheer detailing, a design combination synonymous with vintage nightwear.

Alexa posed barefoot and styled her statement maxi alongside beachy, undone waves and delicate drop earrings, richly evocative of that intoxicating, siren-like image.  

Major holiday envy alert...
