The heat of summer is slowly waning for those living in actual seasons, but for us residing in Southern California, the sun is still shining (and beating down on us with sickeningly hot rays). So while East Coasters can begin to plan enviously adorable outfits for sweater weather, Los Angelenos can still, rest assured, wear crop tops and flirty skirts until December rolls around. So here are five summer looks in the crispest color on the rainbow, and actress Jamie Chung shows us how to rock it.
1. White, from head to toe.
Jamie Chung’s style is always on point, and her look at the Marc Jacob’s Daisy Dream Fragrance event in New York City was no exception. Chung looked sweet and chic as ever in an all-white ensemble that simply radiated summer. Gracing Jamie’s slender body from head to toe, the outfit boasted a mix of patterns and styles that the Korean American actress pulled off effortlessly. While the high-waisted, criss cross-patterned pants billowed loosely around her legs, Chung showed off some skin — and some physique — with a pure white bustier. She completed the look a summer must-have, ban.do’s adorable Twist Scarf in Black + White Polka Dot, for a perfect, flirty vibe.
2. A pale palette.
Chung looks super chic with another white ensemble in this gorgeous pale dress that floats just below the knee. She drapes the dress with a light pink vest to give the outfit more structure.
3. Mix and match.
White seems to shine brighter on Jamie Chung, and it’s the best color to keep cool in the summer heat. Wear a simple white top to complement a great, eye-catching skirt, and don’t hesitate to mix styles that seem to clash. The purse’s fringe gives this look more texture and a completely trendy vibe.
4. It’s all in the details.
This outfit proves that a simple white tee and jeans can go a long way with the right details. The burst of turquoise and the red accents pop even more vibrantly against a plain palette of white and blue.
This is another great example of letting those colors shine against an all-white ensemble. Just don’t sit on a dirty chair!
