No stranger to street style or red carpets, Jessica Alba nailed a perfect combo of pared down and dressed up at the Who What Wear 10th Anniversary event. Her look mixes edgy (leather leggings) and modest (an oversized, menswear-inspired shirt) without missing a beat, for an ensemble that is equal parts effortless, stylish, and, well, surprisingly comfortable for a red carpet arrival. Wish you could steal her enviable style? You can. We found the exact pieces she’s wearing—and, thankfully, more wallet-friendly versions of each.

What Jessica's Wearing

The star arrived dressed to the nines in a full look by designer brand Alice + Olivia. In the mood to treat yourself? Good news: Two of these standout pieces (the long, chic open jacket and cool-girl leather leggings) are available online. The bad news? They’ll set you back quite a bit.

To buy: Alice + Olivia “Kylie” shawl collar jacket, $495; bloomingdales.com. Alice + Olivia “Angie” leather pants, $948; neimanmarcus.com.
