Whether she's hitting the red carpet or hitting the streets, Jessica Alba never misses a sartorial beat, and we're constantly envying the way she updates everyday items and gives them new light. Case in point, her vest. Alba is a huge fan of this versatile piece, wearing it year-round in denim, leather, and every fabric in between. On Monday, the actress gave her black vest a summer refresh by pairing it with a black crop top and lightweight silk trousers. A pair of black combat boots gave the ensemble an edge while her gold hoop earrings and dainty EF Collection necklace added some sparkle. The perfect summer in the city outfit.
