While the term matchy-matchy might've earned a bad rap in the past, modern interpretations of the look actually couldn't be more de rigueur. Monochrome dressing and matching prints, as well as less literal takes such as the mixing of similar elements, are everywhere on the celeb scene, and Jessica Alba is the latest starlet to put her spin on the trend.
On a recent evening out in L.A., attending a fête for Oliver Peoples and dining at hot-spot restaurant Craig's, the actress and entrepreneur donned a host of classic separates, including a black-and-white striped top that she notably matched to her crossbody handbag. An elegant longline white jacket and black pumps further punctuated an expertly coordinated ensemble, while high-waisted denim gave it a California-girl spin. Finished with classic gold hoops and effortless, natural hair and makeup, Jessica's look is the epitome of casual-cool—and proves that yes, you can wear a T-shirt out at night.
