Looking for style inspiration as a busy executive mom? Look no further than actress Jessica Alba, whose brand The Honest Company just went public.
This executive mom of three has a flair for creating polished, put-together looks that manage to be both classic and on-trend.
Read on for three Jessica Alba CEO style takeaways that you can try for yourself (and that I frequently use with my women’s personal styling clients).
#1: Blazers, Blazers, Blazers
A great-fitting blazer is a versatile staple that every professional woman should have in their wardrobe, and it’s clearly a pillar of Jessica Alba’s style.
A blazer elevates any outfit so it’s perfect for creating low-maintenance, put-together looks for any season.
Try dressing it down with jeans and oxfords for a casual meeting, or dress it up with pants in a coordinating core color and a great pair of heels.
A core color blazer like black and navy will be the most versatile — or try a fun print like the houndstooth one she’s wearing on the right.
Most importantly, buy a blazer you really love; filling your closet with only items you really enjoy wearing makes getting dressed in the morning so much easier.
#2: Monochrome Dressing
I’m a big fan of monochrome dressing: Wearing one color head to toe instantly makes you look stylish, so it’s an easy way to look put-together.
It’s also a simple outfit formula to remember for busy executive moms.
All-black is the most common monochrome outfit you’ll see, but don’t limit yourself to only that color. Also keep in mind the shades don’t need to be an exact match.
Try a power suit like Jessica Alba’s style on the left; the pieces can be worn together or broken up to create more casual looks.
Adding shoes and a bag in a contrasting shade will give you an extra visual pop.
Or try a casual all-white look with sneakers for warmer climates.
#3: Dressed Up White Sneakers

White sneakers are a wardrobe staple that goes with everything, and they’re also comfortable for running around all day in- whether you have to go meet external stakeholders at an offsite or even go to a business lunch during the day.
White sneakers with jeans is a natural pairing, but you can also try wearing them with a sleek dress for a cool modern look.
Here Alba pairs them with a long tailored coat as well as a striped button down for two classic looks that are both timeless and on-trend.
Notice how she sticks to core colors to keep her sneaker outfits classic and put-together. Just make sure your own white sneakers are fresh and clean.
