Are you a little bit Alexis?

Becoming a little bit Alexis is a goal we all strive towards, so ELYSIAN created the ultimate Schitt’s Creek style guide.

When its sixth and final season ended in April, 2020, Schitt’s Creek fans across the globe mourned the loss of TV’s favorite reformed elitist family. The comedy begins on the day that the Rose clan learns their accountant has run off with all of their money. What follows are a multitude of whirlwind adventures as the affluent family adjusts to the reality of their new lives.

While Schitt’s Creek’s Moira Rose may be the most well-dressed character – not to mention the easiest to make fun of – her daughter, Alexis, is a close runner-up.

Who is Alexis Rose

Played by Canadian actress Annie Murphy, Alexis Rose imparts an aesthetic that is equal parts Malibu Barbie and yoga retreat leader. As she tells her brother, played by actor and producer Daniel Levy, “I don’t skate through life, David. I walk through life. In really nice shoes.” In short, Alexis Rose is the ultimate Schitt’s Creek diva – move over Moira.

At first, Alexis seems to be a ditzy, spoiled socialite without a clue. But as the show progressed, she grabbed the attention and hearts of the world. Her former life escapades often gave fans a reason to laugh – and to worry. “Do [we] have to remind you of the time that [she] was taken hostage on David Geffen’s yacht by Somali pirates for a week and nobody answered [her] texts”?

It’s obvious to see why from the UK to the US, “la-la-la, a little bit Alexis” quickly became everyone’s favorite catchphrase.

Add “a Little Bit Alexis” to Your Style

In addition to her impeccable comedic timing, Alexis proves fashionably savvy as well. Her incredibly chic Bohemian wardrobe draws inspiration from the most luxurious French designers. Whether she’s dazzling in Dior or goofing off in Gucci, Alexis knows how to dress to impress.

Alexis Rose is not a character we would describe as shy. The perky public relations whiz is always on her ‘A’ game – whether she’s helping Twyla with her disastrous love life or trying to get her mother a role in the new Crows movie. This bold dress made by Magda Butrym is a perfect example of daring style that is quintessentially a little bit Alexis.

We all want to feel a little bit Alexis all the time, but changing your aesthetic with the seasons can be tough. The contrasting dark hues of this ruffled mini dress from ETRO and off-white leather create an ideal transitional look. When paired with knee high boots and a slouchy bag, this outfit will have heads turning all the way from Rose Apothecary to Café Tropical.

Chill, David.

While we’re obsessed with Alexis Rose’s elegant outfits, we can’t forget that she also knows how to make casual look cool. This is an outfit she would probably wear on an excursion to Elmdale with motel-owner-slash-landlord, Stevie Budd. Plus bell bottoms and a wrap waist blouse make an excellent outfit for a fun family games night. Escape room anyone?
