Get the Look for Less – Jessica Alba’s Skinny Jeans, Wedge Sneakers + More
Jessica Alba, who’s largely traded acting for motherhood, books and her Honest Company — which peddles organic baby and beauty products — always looks effortless fabulous, even when she’s getting coffee in Los Angeles. Not only is she genetically blessed, but her street style is natural and unforced.
She wore this layered outfit while grabbing a bevvie at Starbucks. She looks faboosh, right? Well, we can tell you how to replicate this ensemble, and at a much more affordable price.
Her grey print blazer is a little long and coat-like, and Banana Republic offers a variety of lengths and cuts similar to Alba’s, like this one. You can also shop the men’s section to replicate her version.
We also recommend heading to a high end vintage or consignment show to pop some tags, Macklemore-style, on a blazer. They always have a great assortment, but if you prefer something not previously lived in, Banana Republic offers the most options.
American Eagle’s super comfy, stretchy, dark rinse skinnies are exactly like those Alba is wearing, and at less than $50.
Now those hidden wedge shoes is where it gets tricky. Isabel Marant’s suede Bekett shoe is similar to the white velcro high tops Alba is sporting, but those retail for $640. (No, that’s not a typo.) So if you’re budget conscious, then go for Forever 21′s decidedly more affordable version, which only debits your bank account by $38.
The prevailing philosophy and golden rule of dressing like a celeb is the mixing of high and low. In other words, if your shoes or bag are Chanel and you accessorize properly, then everything else can be Old Navy, Gap or H&M. Only one luxury item needs to equal a mortgage payment.
You can also copy Alba’s lip and nail color with ease. Like her orange-red polish? Try On the Same Page by OPI. Want her pinkish red lips? Go with MAC’s New York Apple, a muted red laced with pink shimmer.
