Jamie Chung arrived at our Styled By shoot wearing the perfect summer outfit: an H&M straw boater hat paired with a Madewell sleeveless chambray shirt tucked into a black pleated midi skirt from Aritzia. It was flirty and accessible, precisely how the actress—check her out in Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, starring Jessica Alba and in theaters August 22nd—describes her personal style. “Someone once categorized me as the downtown girl, and I like that because I am not just about the expensive labels,” Chung says. We like it too, and her effortless high-low mix is just one of the many reasons we’re avid followers of her blog What The Chung?, a picturesque photo diary of the Los Angeles native’s thoughtfully curated outfits and exotic travels—a.k.a. eye candy for the fashion obsessed.
With an eye for bold color and lively summer prints, we knew Chung would be the perfect subject to take over our fashion closet. So after assembling four floral-centric outfits, we headed out to Abbot Kinney in Venice (right outside our favorite pop-up shop Figue) to capture the standout looks in action. Keep scrolling to see all of Chung’s ensembles, which are flawlessly executed, just as you’d expect!
