Actress (and recent HK visitor) Jamie Chung shows us how to do the perfect chic summer outfit. Not only does it consist of separates, which makes it so much more versatile, but the basic silhouette means that you can pretty much follow her look with similar pieces from your own wardrobe!
The key is the silhouette and proportions. Keep to these two rules and you are pretty much able to mix and match to your heart’s content. Jamie has chosen a sleeveless yet non-clingy top and a long flowing skirt which keeps the look elegant and practical in hot weather. For print lovers (like this Butterboom writer) a possible suggestion would be to add a polka dot shirt into the mix.
Jamie adds interest and quirkiness with accessories. Straw hats are a key item for Spring/Summer 2014 and hers is from H&M. Sunglasses are from Karen Walker and she extends the feline trend with cute yet practical Loeffler Randall Junior Work tote and sandals from the same brand.
How to Get the Look
Jamie’s shirt is from Madewell but we have found a cute alternative from Free People. Her skirt is from a designer brand called Artizia. As an alternative, we suggest a great black pleated midi skirt from Topshop.
Remember, it is Jamie’s accessories that make this summer time look a sweet one. So follow Jamie with Loeffler Randall shoes and bag. For the bag, we have chosen the less structured version (yet still in fun animal print) in the brand’s range to give it a bit more of a boho vibe.
We love Jamie’s Karen Walker Northern Lights sunglasses so much that they are also our pick for this look. Add a simple pony tail, wear a cheery smile and you are ready to go!
