When I first saw this skirt, I wasn’t sure if it was for me as it was a bold color choice. Sometimes, with fashion, it’s all about taking chances and I’m glad I did with this skirt. I’ve gotten a lot of great compliments about this skirt and have found that it pairs well with a lot of different colors. Here, I’ve paired the bold yellow skirt with a blue striped button-down shirt (which happens to be one of my favorite color combos). I decided to accessorize with some pearls and a bold leopard print. How would you pair a bold color skirt?

The look for less: Jessica Alba

the look for less comment

Jessica Alba is one of those celebrities who seems so carefree and laid back that you couldn’t help but be friends with her. I think her personality shows through with her style as well. She always has a look that seems to be effortless and usually is wearing a closet staple that most of us can use as inspiration for our own outfits.

In this look, Jessica is seen wearing a basic outfit with a tank from Rails and J Brand skinny jeans. She adds a pop of color with a coral blazer, pearl bracelet, and metallic silver ankle-cross heels. She brings a little bit of spring to the outfit with this Tory Burch floral bag.

This look is pretty easy to pull off and is great for a casual business meeting or meeting friends for brunch. Every girl should have a basic white tank in her closet – consider this one for versatility. Add these dark wash jeans from Michael Kors for a basic foundation. This blazer is a similar style and great jacket when the weather is not too cold. Finish off with these strappy heels, a pearl bracelet, and this cute floral bag and you’re all ready for your next outing!
