What do you wear when you’re out on a major shopping jaunt? Most of us would opt for something comfortable and easy to walk around in, which often equates to a baggy pair of trackpants and our scruffiest trainers. But what about if you’re a celebrity who could potentially be snapped by the paps? Eek – dilemma! Sensible Jessica Alba chose comfort but also managed to stay looking stylish with what we think is a cute little pulled-up-socks-under-boots combination. While it may be warm enough in LA for the actress to wear them with little denim shorts, we’d recommend either a warm wool skirt or even wearing the socks over some black opaque tights for a snuggly UK-in-autumn version.
To recreate Jessica’s look, try these flat grey suede boots from Faith (£90), and either a pair of Jonathan Aston’s jacquard over knee socks from My-Wardrobe (£10) or try layering with two sets of over-the-knee socks from Falke (£32 for the pair at Net-a-Porter).
