Lovely Layers: Jamie Chung's Grey Sweater Dress and Camel Vest Look for Less

Recreate Jamie Chung's grey sweaterdress and camel vest look for less.
Jamie Chung was seen shopping at Melrose Place in Los Angeles wearing a grey turtleneck dress, cognac brown knee-high boots, and a camel vest.

The style pro finished her look with retro-inspired sunglasses and a bohemian tote featuring a geometric print and macrame detailing.

The main takeaways from this look (and there are many!) are the gorgeous mix of neutrals, the winter layering technique of adding a vest, and the precise proportions.

To tell you the truth, this look was a lot harder to recreate on a budget than I anticipated. While sleeveless blazers/jackets and longline duster vests (or whatever you want to call them!) have been super hot lately, they also seem to be sold out everywhere. Fortunately I stumbled upon one option at Amazon that I hope you'll like.

Fyi I ordered this camel vest from Amazon and it's literally the worst thing ever.....I would not recommend it. The fabric is cheap and wrinkly, it looks like something my grandma would wear as a cover when she's getting her hair done.

Oh crud, I'm so sorry to hear this. I hope you left a negative review on Amazon. I'll be more careful linking on Amazon, things can be so hit or miss and I try to find items with good reviews, but finding a vest like Jamie's was rather challenging. Thank you for the feedback, Lia!
