Jessica Alba looked a vision of cool as she strolled around New York on Wednesday. The 36-year-old actress wore a statement oversized shirt jacket, which featured navy and brown stripes. The Sin City star wore the ensemble over a crisp white t-shirt and teamed it with a pair of cropped jeans. For footwear, she chose a pair of comfy looking white pumps. When it came to accessories, Jessica kept it simple, with a patent black and maroon shoulder bag, an assortment of bangles and oversized hoop earrings.

Beauty-wise, Jessica wore her long, glossy caramel-hued hair down in a sleek 'do. Her make-up was kept natural, with a sweep of bronzer, subtle outline of liner around her brown eyes and a touch of pink lipstick. And it appears that Jessica is a fan of the casual cool look this season.

The 36-year-old wore another statement shirt and jeans combo at Victoria Beckham's garden party 

Back in April, she turned up at Victoria Beckham’s star-studded garden party for the launch of her Target collection, wearing a semi-sheer bee print blouse. The ultra-feminine design was tucked into a pair of stone-wash jeans, which stood out with an oversized belt. This time, the actress dressed up her look with a pair of leg-lengthening nautical inspired striped platform heels, and accessorised with a simple shoulder bag and hoop earrings.

Wearing her hair in a pretty half up ‘do ensured that all eyes were on her stunning feautures. A bold outline of black liner drew attention to her eyes, while a glowy base, sweep of rose-hued blush and peach lipgloss completed her awe-inspiring look.
