looking good: jamie chung

Keeping it light on this Monday—still riding Sunday's lazy fumes. I spotted this photo of Jamie Chung while flipping through InStyle over the weekend. Her look combines two well-established trends (mixing prints and matching separates) in a fresh way: she wears the same pattern on top and bottom, but in different scales. Sophisticated but unstuffy. Her outfit is from the Banana Republic x Marimekko collection, which hit stores in late May and I, regrettably, completely missed. I carried a tote in college cut from the same cloth as Chung's skirt and would have loved to relive those days with the signature whimsical and modern designs in pants, skirts and dresses (this peplum top + Hampton short is too good). Regardless, the look is prime fashion food and I'm biting. Choosing basic patterns like dots and stripes is the easiest way to recreate the coordinated look on your own.
