When boohoo.com asked me to choose my celebrity style icon I knew instantly who I would pick. Jessica Alba has been one of my favourite actresses since I first saw her in James Cameron’s Dark Angel and her effortless and classic sense of style means she often appears on the pages of magazines and acts as inspiration for fashion conscious women worldwide.
After scrolling through hundreds of images I found the perfect look to steal for Autumn/Winter with the help of Boohoo.
My weekend style is fairly laid back and I wanted a look that I could wear whether I’m heading out for lunch or traipsing around a DIY superstore (something we’ve been doing a lot recently!) so this outfit Jessica Alba wore for a day in the office really appealed to me.
To recreate the look I chose the Yazmeen Belted Mac, the simple white Alice Swing Vest, high waisted jeans from Oasis (old season), crocodile print Olivia Zip Side Skater shoes, the Melissa Winged Bag from Accessorize (old season) and a Maria Bar and Coin Layered Necklace to complete the look.
The Yazmeen Belted Mac is a bargain at just £25 and looks great with jeans and a simple white top like the Alice Swing Vest. The Alice Vest is light and hangs beautifully hiding any lumps and bumps, plus it’s only £5. I think I’ll be investing in a couple of other colours for my holiday!
I’ve written about the Melissa Winged Bag from Accessorize before but unfortunately it seems to have been discontinued. Although not as bold as Jessica Alba’s bag I think it works well with the outfit.
The Olivia Zip Side Skater shoes are just £15 and I love the zip detailing and subtle crocodile print.
Since Jessica Alba tends to layer necklaces I opted for the Maria Bar and Coin Layered Necklace to finish off my celebrity style icon challenge.
I really enjoyed taking part in this challenge and I think it’s only increased my admiration for Jessica Alba. Thanks to boohoo.com for making it possible and to my amazing boyfriend John for playing fashion photographer.
