STYLE ADVICE: I would love to get this Jessica Alba look for a 40th birthday party dinner

Posted on: July 7, 2014

QUESTION:  My sister is turning 40 soon and we are having a party. I have seen this look online and I love it, what I need to know if this would suit me and how I could re create it, given I don’t have a Jessica Alba budget? article-0-1BC7975B000005DC-40_634x911 ANSWER: The outfit you’ve picked is fun and playful, yet both skirt and top are very versatile to wear with other clothes, creating more outfits for future occasions.  With this in mind, we’ve recreated the outfit you’re after whilst keeping your shape and budget in mind:

1. Dorothy Perkins, skirt, now £15 : – In-keeping with Jessica’s style, this skirt also has SJP written all over it! The full shape will highlight your enviable waist whilst gliding softly over your hips and bottom. The outfit you’ve seen works really well as the skirt is high waisted and the jumper is cropped. The colour blocking breaks up the outfit, drawing all attention to the waist – your slimmest part:14536614_large 2. Mango jumper, £19.99: We’ve found a knitted cropped sweater similar to that which Jessica is rocking, it will sit neatly on the high waistband of the skirt:- 001121839   3. Zara bag, £59.99:– To tie everything together, grab an oversize clutch, Zara always has a very stylish selection: garment-1029339 4. French Connection blouse, now £31.50: If the weather is warm and a dark jumper looks to heavy, a white blouse is a fantastic alternative. A really versatile purchase, match with a printed a-line skirt for work, or tuck into a pair of tapered trousers or your favourite pair of jeans for after work drinks. There are so many options on the high-street, so we’d suggest opting for a blouse with feminine detailing like lace, embroidery or delicate pleating: garment-1739628-2015087 5. Anthropologie earrings, £28: – You mentioned you wanted to glam up your look, something that can instantly be achieved with a pair of jewelled drop earrings. If you’re not an earring girl, try a cocktail ring a embellished cuff bracelet to add some glitz:

6. River Island sandals, £45: – A high heel will balance out the proportions of the midi-skirt and these will also look fabulous with a little cocktail dress or a jeans and blazer look. Karen x
