When you like something, you wear it multiple times. This was the case for actress and businesswoman Jessica Alba as she was spotted wearing the blazer-and-jean combo twice in a row in New York City.
This pairing has been a go-to uniform for many stylish women (Princess Diana was a fan!) It's polished, easy and most likely everyone owns the two wardrobe staples. The sleek jacket teamed with denim strikes the ideal balance of being office-appropriate and casual cool. Not only is it perfect for work, the outfit complements any occasion whether you're heading to brunch with friends or a meeting.

The Honest Company founder has a knack for accessorizing and, with a versatile sartorial canvas that is the blazer-and-jean combo, she further elevated her The Row topper, Re/Done jeans and Saint Laurent platform sandals with trendy add-ons like her Mark Cross straw bag and MaxMara rectangular sunglasses. We love that she donned a simple white tee underneath, which never fails to complement the chic combo.
For her second look, Alba chose an unraveled hem jean from Re/Done and a checked 3.1 Phillip Lim style for the blazer with a gray tee underneath. She tied a camel-colored cashmere sweater from Vince around the shoulders for a preppy effect, and finished off with of-the-moment chunky dad sneakers from Celine and oversize cat-eye sunnies by MaxMara.
