Jessica Alba has been a style star for a long time, with dozens of incredible outfits over the years serving as proof. One thing that the actress and founder of
The Honest Company has clearly proven time and again is that she's a pro at choosing figure-flattering looks that are both timeless and on trend. Her ability to look both alluring and sophisticated at once is no small feat, and women around the world undoubtedly look to her to achieve that same balance in their own wardrobes.
But since you probably are already aware of how stylish Alba is, read on to see what we consider her best looks to date, from her raved-about 2006 Oscars look to now.
Elevate Your Loungewear
Style Notes: Kimonos and robes aren't just for lounging around the house—a chic printed iteration like Jessica's adds a stylish touch to a basic minidress. The effect is as comfortable as it is cool (which makes it great for expecting mothers).
On Jessica Alba: Michael Stars Jersey Midi Dress With Shirring ($88); Vince Warren Leather Sneakers ($225); Chanel bag
Style Notes: There's pajama-inspired dressing, and then there's literally wearing your pajamas as an outfit. Jessica makes a case for the latter with a pretty silk pair, which she makes suitable for wearing outside the bedroom with a sleek overcoat and wide-brim hat.

When in Doubt, Wear Black, White, and Gray
