Celebrities need to have a portfolio full of simple style tips that make any look instantly cooler. We like to imagine that they pass them on to each other, because somehow they are all aware of the same trends. Case in point: Jessica Alba’s latest cup of coffee showcasing the shoes that virtually everyone owns in Hollywood.
Stepping out in Los Angeles, she wore a shiny burgundy knit sweater (what a party!) Tucked into flare jeans with a tie plaid headband and a pair of combat boots. Our eyes were immediately drawn to her shoes as the reddish brown color matches her sweater almost perfectly – it’s expert style!
Combat boots are one of those styles of footwear that will continue to transcend time. And the best part is that they are stylish and practical. The classic boot has a sleek lace-up silhouette with chunky lug soles that make it the perfect cool and comfortable shoe for girls. Plus, most styles are weather resistant, so it’s no wonder that so many celebrities own a pair.
While you can save your boots for the cooler months, the stars have proven that this utilitarian style can pretty much be worn all year round. Hailey Bieber, Joan Smalls and Shay Mitchell all wore a pair to Coachella a few summers ago, and Kaia Gerber stepped out in a pair with a mini dress and leather jacket. Kate Middleton and Hilary Duff are a few other famous fans who have been spotted as a couple over the past year. Alba actually wore the same boots earlier this week at a Baby2Baby event, further proving that we need a pair in our rotation ASAP.
