Not many of you liked the previous Jessica Alba outfit we featured, but we think she more than made up for it with this look she wore to the City of Beverly Hills Centennial Party yesterday.
First off, Jessica took the sweatshirt and leather pants trend (whose fans include Rihanna, Beyonce, Kim Kardashian, and Kanye West, to name a few) and put her sophisticated feminine twist to it. She opted for the street-style-favorite Kenzo tiger sweatshirt and paired it with an almost mumsy high-waisted, knee-length leather skirt. Then, just when we were expecting to see the usual pumps, she surprised us with platform booties, which brought her look back to cool street style territory again.

As always, Jessica expertly accessorized with a studded clutch, stacked bracelets, and an interesting chunky necklace in her ensemble’s green-gold-and-red color scheme.
You can look at Jessica Alba’s outfit as a way to dress up a sweatshirt or to dress down sky-high stiletto boots, but either way, it’s one cute getup that’s both chic and warm. Jessica’s own boots are most likely designer, but thankfully, it’s a style that you can find anywhere. We quickly found these 5 black platform booties with prices starting at just $38.99:
1. Shoe Cult by Nasty Gal “Veronika” Platform Booties, $98
2. Luichiny “Whoa Girl” Booties, $48.72–$99.99
3. Pour La Victoire “Bardot” Suede Booties, $99 (before: $330)
4. Mojo Moxy “Lennon” Booties, $38.99–$134.99
5. Nine West “Araye” Platform Booties, $95.40–$110.30
