Jessica Alba breathed new life into a casual business staple as she strolled with her son, Hayes, in Los Angeles.
The Golden Globe-nominated actress appeared in a beige and white striped button-down shirt by Kittenish. However, the collared piece was anything but formal; Alba layered it over a white tank top tucked into cream pants. Giving the room a bohemian element, layered pendant necklaces, along with a $695 Boyy Slouchy Buckle Shoulder Bag. Alba’s look was completed with the nude Lola cat-eye sunglasses from Otra.
For shoes, the Honest Beauty founder completed her ensemble with a pair of high-top Converse sneakers. Her style featured white canvas uppers, as well as a classic lace-up silhouette. The pair was completed with white rubber platform soles, giving it a height boost while streamlining its neutral tones.
High-top sneakers like Alba’s are a staple style, which can be worn with any number of casual outfits. Neutral canvas or leather pairs with classic lace-up silhouettes are the most popular. In addition to the “Good Luck Chuck” actress, stars like Anne Hathaway, Lucy Hale and Jordan Alexander have also donned white sneakers from Nike, Vans and Balmain in recent weeks.
When it comes to footwear, Alba keeps its styles classic and contemporary. The ‘Into the Blue’ star often wears chunky platform boots and sandals by Giuseppe Zanotti, Opening Ceremony and Kat Maconie for an extra boost. Red carpets and events often find her in pointy-toe pumps and shiny sandals from brands like Christian Louboutin, Celine and Nicholas Kirkwood, among countless others. Outside of working hours, she frequently wears Puma and Converse sneakers, as well as affordable slides and sandals from Sam Edelman, Yosi Semra and Launa Lea.
