How to Dress Up Your Chunky Dr. Martens Boots Like Jessica Alba

Before looking professional and polished in jeans and flats last week, Jessica Alba was spotted sporting a sheer maxi dress paired with classic Dr. Martens boots. She wore the combo with a black scarf, a slouchy blazer in the same color, and a black tote.

It was a very laid-back look and probably not her usual style, but with Jessica being, well, Jessica, she managed to pull it off well enough. Check out the celebrity mom’s outfit below, and tell us if you agree.

Well, any thoughts? Is it a hit or a miss for Ms. Alba?

You know what? We think she looked alright. What’s interesting about this particular getup is how she dressed it up to make it appropriate enough for a meeting. If you take out the topper and neck warmer, the outfit would have been like your usual maxi and boots combo — grunge, boho, nothing new, and certainly not appropriate for a business-related chit-chat. With the add-ons, however, it’s a whole different story. In fact, we think it’s a copy-worthy look.

Jessica’s Dr. Martens boots are the “1460.” This style comes in many color and material variations. They’re crafted from leather inside and out and feature 6-inch-tall shafts. The rubber soles on these shoes are 1.25 inches thick so they are slightly chunky. You can easily score a pair online if you don’t have one in your closet. They’re what you call classics — much like Converse Chucks.

To copy Jessica’s style, you need a sheer maxi dress or at least a dress with a slit detail that goes all the way up to your thigh. Wear the maxi with your Docs, and top off the combo with a black circle scarf and a blazer that isn’t too structured yet still corporate-looking (don’t forget to fold the sleeves up to your elbows). Complete the mix with dark sunnies and a matching purse. To give you an idea, check out the mishmash we put together using two different dresses:
