Whoever follows Jessica Alba on the social networks, must already know that the beautiful actress is currently enjoying a trip to Paris, for the 2012 Paris Fashion Week. Since her arriving on March 1, Jessica has been spotted everywhere in Paris, spending quality time with her sister-in-law, taking pictures, long walks, sightseeing and of course … shopping.
Sporting a relaxed and casual style in the cold French capital, it seems that Jessica developed a serious crush on colors this year, as she was seen wearing hot pink and neon lime Current/Elliot skinny jeans in Paris, and also lots of red, canary yellow, tangerine, green and aquamarine, back at home, all throughout the cold season.
To prevent the look from becoming too much, Jessica loves to keep the pops of color simply and tastefully styled. For that, she teamed the jeans with black and nude ankle boots, black coats with simple lines and classic silhouettes, a grey jacket, a blue MiH Jeans Star-Print silk-crepe shirt and minimal make-up.
To accessorize the hot fashion items, Jess chose a black leather tote, a hot pink Loewe Flamenco bag with tassels, a black Christys hat and a fun pair of sunglasses.
THE STILETTO JEANS – $319.00
It’s been a while since I have done my latest Essentials episode, almost a month actually, and I quite forgot how fun it is to mix and match brands, colors, fabrics. I said fun, but it is also an extremely time consuming activity, maybe just for me, as I get caught in the “research” and sometimes forget to put a stop to it.
Skipping to the point, this forth episode has all three looks based on a piece that proves to be absolutely necessary in ones wardrobe : the black blazer. I happen to love blazers no matter the color, but somehow the black one seems to be the classic way to go and there’s nothing wrong with sticking to the classics, now and then. You must have already heard by now that old piece of “shopping” advice, that suggests to always think of possible ways to mix an item, with the clothing already in our closet, right before we purchase it and we find at least one combination, it’s safe to know we will actually be wearing that particular item. Well, when buying a black blazer, there’s no need to worry about all that, as you will be able to find a match for it, in a heart beat.
Enough with the bla bla, let’s skip to the important part, the three looks :
I used : Current/Elliot – The Stiletto low-rise cropped skinny jeans ; Maison Martin Margiela – Stretch-wool blazer ; Splendid – Cotton and modal-blend top ; Nixon – Time Teller ceramic watch ; Dominic Jones – Scarab Dragonfly 23-karat white gold-plated ring ; Mulberry – Bayswater textured-leather bag ; Miu Miu – Suede pumps.
I used : Vionnet – Matte-satin dress ; Maison Martin Margiela – Stretch-wool blazer ; Bottega Veneta – Blackened oxidized-silver shell necklace ; Falke – Pure Matt 100 denier black tights ; Church’s – Classic Burwood glossy leather brogues ; Anya Hindmarch – Mini Gracie leather shoulder bag.
I used : Eddie Borgo – Silver-plated turquoise spike earrings ; Maison Martin Margiela – Stretch-wool blazer ; Burberry Prorsum – Beaded textured-leather wristlet clutch ; Christian Louboutin – Gril 120 patent-leather sandals ; Diane Von Furstenberg – Mara asymmetric sequined silk top ; Todd Lynn – Herault crepe and leather skinny pants.
Needless to say you can find all of the items on Net-A-Porter.
