31-year-old Jessica Alba is one of the few Hollywood ladies that can pull off a pair of jeans and a t-shirt just as well as she does a glamorous red carpet dress. Her street style is inspiring for young mommies everywhere, as the mother of two combines maternity with designer wear masterfully.

We liked her looks so much that we decided to steal her style for this fall. There are some key pieces for getting the Jessica Alba look, and you can choose to save or splurge, depending on your budget.

1. The Oversized Cardigan

Splurge: By Marlene Birger cardigan; Save: Romwe cardigan

For fall, an oversized cardigan can often take the place of outerwear. Pick a chunky knit and a mid-calf length, and go with earth tones. Jessica Alba pairs her cardigan with bright wide leg pants, for a fresh boho look, or with knee length boots and tights, for a neutral outfit.

2. The Trench Coat

When it comes to wind and rain, nothing can be more chic than a trench coat. You can opt for the classic neutral, Burberry style, if you want a timeless look, or you can go for a pop of color – fall colors like yellow, burgundy and orange are our top choices.

3. The Colored Jeans

No color is off limits this season when it comes to jeans. Skinnies that hit at the ankle are the trendiest, and you can wear them in everything from pastel to neon. Learn from Jessica Alba, who likes to pair hers with neutral tops and ankle boots.

4. The Wayfarer Sunglasses

Secondly, this style is flattering on anyone, regardless of their face shape and features. All you have to do is find a color that suits you – Jessica picked brights, which makes for a great accessory.

5. The Scarf

Jessica Alba can rarely be seen without a scarf around her neck. She usually picks large scarves, that can be wrapped once or twice, in colors that complement the outfit. Scarves make a great accessory, as they can replace necklaces, and they keep your sensitive neck area covered against the cold.
