While browsing Pinterest, which I do far too often, I came across this photo of Jessica Alba and knew I had to create the look. My main issue? Spending hundreds of dollars to get her exact pieces. As much as I love her flannel, I'm a college student that can't afford to spend $150 on a shirt.
My challenge was to find similar pieces for less. Forever 21 became my one-stop shop for everything I needed for this look.
First off, here's the look that Jessica Alba originally wore:
Recreating this look was simple enough and I think this is perfect for those in between fall days when it's 50 in the morning and 70 by noon.
The grand total of Jessica's outfit was a wallet-friendly $3,903.
My recreation of her outfit only cost me $128.40, but this can also be done for a lot less if you already own some similar pieces.
The only major change I made with the outfit was the bag. It proved difficult for me to find a bag close to her Ralph Lauren one, so I instead opted for a black faux leather backpack that had gold detailing like hers did. It was also challenging to find a circle pendant similar to her House of Harlow necklace, so I went with one that had a similar gold chain and black stone.
And with that hair flip, I'm out. Comment below who you would like to see me do a look for less next! Have a wonderful fall week!
