Paris in the Fall: Jessica Alba's Stripe Top and Rust Cardigan Look for Less

Jessica Alba wears a stripe top, zipper front skinny jeans and a rust colored cardigan while out and about in Paris.
Jessica Alba was seen out and about during Paris fashion week recently wearing a casual and chic outfit we want to copy right now. She's a celeb we can always count on for inspiration that's stylish yet accessible (browse all Jessica Alba outfits for proof). Here, she paired a striped top (which we all own) with skinny black jeans (the zippers are a cool edgy touch, but not required), and a fall-perfect oversized cardigan in a warm pumpkin-spice rust hue. Once you have your basics down, accessories like a quilted purse, ankle wedge booties, hoop earrings, and oversized shades really amp up the glam factor - and don't have to cost a fortune. Read on for our look for less finds below...

Love the outfit, especially the pants. I haven't figured out how to get skinny jeans to stay up. They alway seem to sag in the back and sort of go down when I sit...not good at work. LOL Any suggestions?

Rhonda the struggle is REAL. I've had this problem a lot with skinny jeans. That's one reason I love my BlankNYC jeans from Nordstrom - they're $88 which is a lot for me, but they hold their shape better than most other brands I've tried. Still, I use a skinny belt to keep them up all day, otherwise I'm pulling them up by the end of the day. Look for a skinny jean with a mid-rise and more cotton than spandex...they're not as soft but tend to hold their shape better. I also love the Signature by Levi Strauss & Co. brand at Walmart - under $20 and hardly any sagging! Good luck.
