A day in the life of Jessica Alba must be utterly exhausting. In addition to running her organic home goods business The Honest Company, Alba models for Zico Coconut Water, acts in major motion pictures, and raises a family including two small children. This combination of endeavors is no small feat in itself, but Alba also manages to get herself out the door and onto the red carpet looking elegant and modern for every single appearance. If Alba isn't a prime example of multitasking done correctly, I don't know who is.
The actress and entrepreneur turned on the charm for an appearance at 2014's Comic Con, to which she wore a Zimmerman midi skirt with a hypnotizing pattern, and a Tanya Taylor crop top, paired with one Sex and the City-approved pair of tasseled heels by Kotur. Moreover, Alba looks as if she is having the time of her life in the outfit. The look is undeniably chic, but with Alba's sartorial formula in mind, you too can look like a glamorous starlet, albeit without an entourage or a hair and makeup team. Read on for Alba's four essentials to channel this trendy summer ensemble. Who says nerds can't be stylish?
1. SPAGHETTI STRAP TANK TOP
All you need is a strategic pop of pattern to emphasize your favorite features and replicate the tone of Alba's look. If you want to show off your shoulders, try Clover Canyon's Enchanted Garden Neoprene Top.
2. ILLUSION PANELED MIDI SKIRT
Though a crop top adds a revealing element to any ensemble, you can balance your look with a prim illusion-paneled midi skirt like Cynthia Rowley's Denim Midi Skirt.
3. STATEMENT SANDALS
Add spring to your step by wearing a pair of gladiator heels like Alba's. Vince Camuto's Ombre Gladiator High Heel Sandals strike the perfect balance between ladylike and alluring.
4. SILVER EAR CUFF
Accent your ensemble with a matching ear cuff in stunning silver and blue, like Bauble Bar's Hermes Ear Cuff.
