Confession: we have an office obsession with Jessica Alba. Anytime we need inspiration for a cute summer outfit (or any season, really) we turn to her. Whether she’s in Los Angeles or New York City, every look she’s photographed in by the paparazzi hits that perfect balance of inspiring and accessible.
Earlier this month, Alba was snapped in New York’s SoHo neighborhood in what might be the perfect late spring-early summer outfit.
Jessica is wearing an absolutely covetable blue-and-white floral Tibi blazer with dark denim jeans, a white v-neck T-shirt and purple leather satchel. The color combination doesn’t initially sound like it would work, but the pale blue and striking deep violet compliment each other well.
Let’s also have a moment for her white sandals, how good are they? We love the sexy minimalist strap across the foot, and they help pull together the white shirt and white of her blazer.
As finishing touches, her nails are a deep purple or navy—and now is the time to wear those dark tones before we fully transition to summer brights and pastels.
Emulating Alba’s look isn’t hard, and we’ve gathered everything you need to channel her off-duty style this weekend.
